I love summer and the beautiful weather and spending long days at the beach. The sun stays bright longer and the fresh air/vitamin d combo is such an amazing boost for my mood. One pitfall is how the hot and humid weather is not so good for makeup and can cause a need for change in your skincare routine. In the summer I keep the make up light. I usually stick to simple eye shadow and mascara. I use lip color to really express myself for summertime since I do not like to wear heavy face or eye makeup. To me, during summertime, less is more and keep it simple are great motto's for skincare and makeup.
Here are some of my favorite summer skincare items I have been using

Supergood Unseen Sunscreen- $32 It really is unseen! It blends right in and works as the perfect
base. It does not leave any residue or shine. It is also SPF40 which is
great for sun protection. It is oil free and is perfect for daily use. I received supergoop Unseen Sunscreen complimentary from preendotme.
Olay Regenerist Luminous dark circle correcting cream- I one of those who no matter what seems to have dark circles under my eyes. I do like think slightly tinted cream as it does a nice job of concealing them.
Benefit Browvo Conditioning Primer $28 Your brows need love too! This conditions your brows and keeps them in shape.
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream- $35 I like this because it is very lightweight and does not weigh your skin down or make it feel heavy. It absorbs quickly as well too.
Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Water- $17 This is a birchbox find for me. I love using micellar water because it is so effective at and refreshing during the hot summer months. This is an excellent product for anyone with sensitive skin
Neutrogena HydroBoost Gentle Cleansing Lotion-$8.99 There are two methods to using the lotion:washing off with water or wiping away with a cloth/tissue. This is nice because some days I may not want to use moisturizer and this works well at cleansing and hydrating my skin.
Manyo Factory Galactomyces Niacin- $29 I tried this for a discount price to review awhile back and really just
love using it.The results are very consistent. My skins texture has improved a lot. It absorbs very quickly so it is an easy
step to add to your morning routine.
12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment Spray- Second birchbox find on the list. This product helps protect hair from chlorine,wind a sun which is basically a must have for any summer day. It also has a fresh summer scent that leaves your hair smelling great.
Wren Natural Deodorant- $12 I just review this on my instagram. I am trying to be more cautious of ingredients in skincare and aluminum is one I would love to cut out for good. This deodorant is all natural and actually works!!
NeoCell Beauty Bursts-
I received these to try for free to review. I wasn't sure at first if they would really work but wow was I impressed. The biggest gain for me has been my nails. My nails chip and peel very badly. Since using the Beauty Bursts my nails are so much stronger. I can also see an improvement in my skin and hair as well. This is a great way to lighten the load of products and work on beauty from inside. They taste really good too! The Beauty Bursts include 2,000 mg of Collagen and include vitamin c which is a collagen enhancer as well as hyaluronic acid. they are also gluten free and non gmo. Just take 2 every morning and see results shortly.
