It can be so hard balancing keeping a light and fresh face of makeup on while also taking care of your skin during the summer time with all of the time in the sun, but I feel like it’s the one season out of the year where my skin can truly breathe and catch a break which I love. While I spend just about all of my time out in the sun during the summertime, I always like to keep a light face of makeup on too so I’m not completely bare, and take extra good care of my skin to prevent sun damage. Today I’ll be rounding up some of my favorite go-to skincare and beauty products for the summertime as we’re just now days away from my favorite season out of the year!
- Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen
- This product is my holy grail throughout the summer because it serves so many different purposes. It’s SPF for your face, very lightweight, natural and transparent so you don’t even feel or see it on you after you apply, and serves as a facial primer/moisturizer! I usually don’t even apply foundation after I put this on and never get a sunburned face anymore. At first, it may feel a tiny bit greasy but that goes away pretty quick. Cannot get enough of this stuff during the summer time!
This is another summer must-have for my skin, it does not seem like it would work at all, but it works so good and I always keep some with me! The moisturizer is intended to be applied when you are wet, after you get out of the shower or bath and after you get out from the pool/lake, etc. and it locks in moisture as your skin is still wet. I pat dry with my towel after and my skin feels insanely smooth and I feel like it works so much better than applying regular lotion/moisturizer after I’m all dry. This product comes in tanning and regular so you can either get a gradual tan from it by applying every day, or no tan!
This has been one of the best sunscreens I’ve used because not only does it work super well, it also smells like paradise, like coconuts and beach and I cannot get enough of it! I typically only use spray applicator sunscreens rather than lotion since I feel it’s a bit easier and quicker to apply. If you’re looking to try a new sunscreen this summer, add this one to the list!
Another great alternative to face sunscreen is tinted moisturizer with SPF. I personally love using tinted moisturizers and actually kind of prefer it over foundation now because it feels so lightweight and natural on your face, and most of the time provides SPF too. I’ve been using the bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizer with SPF over the past couple of months since I absolutely love bareMinerals products and this one works great and gives a tint of bronze too!
My go-to summer makeup product is always a bronzer to help keep up looking tan. I personally do not have a favorite, I’ve tried so many that I like but just haven’t found one that I love yet. Some that I like to use are benefit’s Hoola bronzer and Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer (this one smells like coconuts and smells so good!)
