Clear Skin: My Summer Beauty Products

In the last year, I’ve become a little crazy about beauty products. If it’s been reviewed and liked, I’ll probably give it a shot. Now, I’ve been extremely fortunate/blessed because I’ve got seriously healthy skin. I don’t take it for granted, I know how lucky I am to only get one zit a month (thanks mother nature) but I also take really good care of it. Here are my current favorite summer time care:*

1. Face masks–Now, I’ve only recently started the face mask regime but I’m hooked! My friend S creates her own peel-off mask using an over-the-counter brand plus a little aspirin to similar results as my beauty store purchase. I haven’t tried her method yet but once this bad boy runs out, I’ll give it a whirl!

Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

I really like the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. It has no parabens or other craziness I can’t pronounce! I’ve used it for a few months and while the mask takes a little bit of time to dry, the results are fantastic! My skin feels smooth and radiant for at least a week, then I do the mask all over again. It’s like a little refresher for my overworked face.

2. Argan Oil. Holy potato beans! How am I only learning the magic of this now?! I’ve been using this oil all summer on my face even on the most humid, god-awful days and my skin tone has evened out so well. I cannot stop raving to my friends about it. Give it a try!

3. Cetaphil Facial Wash. I don’t know about you but I’ve got sensitive skin so I’ve tried every face wash I can think of to remove make up. This is my go-to. It’s gentle enough for my super weak face but strong enough to remove smudge-proof, water-proof makeup with little effort.

4. St. Ives Apricot Scrub. Ever since the teen years, this is my morning staple. Freshly scrubbed skin keeps me looking youthful and not so tired after hours of youtube videos. Now, it’s not recommended that you wash with this every day, 3-4 times a week should do it but I’m not a stickler for rules so I use it as part of my daily routine.

Those are my summer skincare staples. What are some of yours? Any thing you recommend or don’t recommend? Remember to always wash your face at night…raccoon eyes in the morning is so not cute.
