Summer Skincare Essentials

Summer is in full swing here in California and that means lots of outdoor activities.
We usually go to the beach at least 1-2 times a week because I just can't get enough
of the sand and sun!
With being in the sun more, there a some essentials to keep
my skin looking and feeling healthy and glowing.
Here are some new sun care items as well as some favorites!
Nios Shield Leave -In- Conditioner SPF 15
I started using this last year and I really like it.
It has Argan Oil, Vitamin E & B5 to help protect your hair and keep 
the frizz at bay.  It is free of chemicals & smells just like summer!

OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray
I love this for sexy beach hair!
It is infused with Sea Salt, Sea Kelp, Argan Oil and 
the smell is addicting! I have been reaching for this non-stop
to give shine and soft waves to my hair. 

Aqua Carpatica Natural Sparkling Mineral Water
I am super in to Sparkling Mineral waters and this one tastes
great. It is sodium and nitrate free and it
 has minerals magnesium and calcium.
Summer skin needs lots of hydration, so make sure
you always have a bottle of water at hand wherever you go!

Ola After Sun Healing Bath
This bath soak is 100% natural and is so soothing
and good for you!
It has 20 active ingredients like Coconut Milk, Hawaiian Seaweeds, Passion 
Flower, Kukui Leaf, Noni Fruit, Aloe, just to name a few!
One of my favorite new skincare finds lately!

Follow up with Ola After Sun Healing Remedy
This line is made in Hawaii, my favorite place!
They use organic tropical plant
based ingredients.  So of course, 
everything smells out of this world! 
This lotion is soothing after a long day in the sun.

 LAVANILA The Healthy Sunscreen SPF 40 Face Cream
This has been my go to face sunscreen this summer. 
It has no chemicals and is lightweight, doesn't leave a white residue,
and is moisturizing. It is infused with antioxidants, botanicals & amino acids.
100% natural =Yes please! Love it!

Malin +Goetz spf 30 Face Moisturizer
This is a new brand of sunscreen I am trying out, 
it has vitamins E, A, C, D & B to protect against free radicals. 
White Green Tea antioxidants
and aloe to soothe.
It is great for when you will be in the water a lot as 
it is water-resistant.
It dries to a clear finish and absorbs really well. 

For Legs!
DS Laboratories Cellulite Reducing Gel
After two kids, a little help goes a long way!
With this gel, you apply a generous layer to the areas 
you feel need a little boost and just rub in! 
Sometimes I use my Clarisonic body brush and just gently massage 
it in for a little extra something and I like how it gives me a little firmer,
smoother appearance.

Svelta Luxe Coffe & Raw Sugar Body Scrub
This smells like heaven! It's 100% natural
and it leaves skin silky soft.  If you want your legs and feet
to look gorgeous you need to scrub weekly and this is one of my favorites!
Especially with sunless tanning, a scrub is a must to keep skin polished and refreshed.
 This infuses, sugar, coffee, olive oil & cardemom.

Sun Bum Natural Browning Lotion
A deep, dark tanning lotion with organic Coconut and Argan oil, Kukui Nut oil, 
Kona Coffee Plant extract & Aloe vera. I use this on my arms, chest and legs for 
a deep tan.  Make sure to exfoliate before applying to legs. 
This smells so good and not like a tanner at all! I love that it is free
of chemicals and is vegan.  

Sally Hansen Water Resistant Airbrush Legs in Medium Glow
I love this for going to events or parties to make legs look fabulous!
A simple spray and you've got instant tan legs for the day or night!
It doesn't rub off or transfer.  It covers veins and imperfections
for a flawless look.

 Bare Republic Milk & Honey Daily Recovery Serum
This serum is for after the sun to help the skin recover.
It has natural ingredients like Manuka honey and
 Oat Milk.  It has Tumeric, Carrot oil, Meadowfoam,
 Hemp seed oil, and Melon extract for antioxidants.
It really refreshes and soaks into skin like a drink
 of much needed water!

Livad Vitamin A & C Cream
This line offers Biodentical vitamins and essential oils for 
after sun and anti aging. 
It has a blend of Vitamins A, D & E to smooth fine lines
and limit free radicals.  
It has three essential oils distilled from sunflowers, 
cucumbers and soybeans to bring out the
skins glow. You can use this
on your face or all over your body!
If you are going to be in the sun or have been in the sun,
you definitely need some repair and this is a must try!
So far I have been impressed with how rejuvenated
it leaves my skin.  

Sun Bum Cool Down
As you can see I am really big into after sun treatments!
Whether you sun for ten minutes or for a day at the beach,
you can use any of these treatments that contain excellent
ingredients for your skin care.
This lotion contains Aloe, Vitamin E and Cocoa Butter.
It helps moisturize and also keep your tan longer. 
This lotion will really soothe dry skin and a hot sunburn!
Of course Sun Bum is a natural line and one of my favorite sun care lines!

Hope you will give some of these a try this summer!
