When it comes to my beauty routine in the summer, it’s all about skincare. And with 2020 being one crazy year, that means more time at home and less makeup as well! That’s why today’s post is all about my summer skincare essentials and the 7 products I can’t live without you (and you should try too!)
7 SUMMER SKINCARE ESSENTIALS:
1. Face Sunscreen
Sunscreen is the #1 product everyone needs to be using during the summer, especially on your face. My favorite this summer has been Tula’s Protect + Glow Sunscreen (use code CARLYHILL for 15% off). It’s super moisturizing, lightweight and gives your skin a glowy shimmer which I love.
2. Blurring Primer
Another everyday favorite for this summer has been Tula’s Face Filter. This product works as a primer/moisturizer that gives your skin a subtle glow and blurs imperfections, while still letting your skin breathe. It’s been perfect this summer since I haven’t been wearing much makeup. Just use this, sunscreen and a little highlighter and mascara and you’re good to go!
Smooth skin is a must in the summer and one of my favorite discoveries has been the Nécessaire The Body Exfoliator. 1) It smells incredible and 2) it helps exfoliate in the shower away any dry, flaky skin to help give your whole body an incredible glow.
4. Moisturizing Mask
Even in the summer my skin can get super dry so I love using Beauty Pie’s Bio-ceramide Moisture Mask. You can use it as a mask and wipe off after 10 minutes or let it soak on your skin all night long too. Plus, if you’re never used Beauty Pie before, use code CARLYSENTME for a $50 credit!
5. Body Lotion
I always have to use body lotion after I jump out of the shower and before bed and this one from Nécessaire The Body Lotion has become my go-to this summer. It’s not greasy and still makes your skin feel super hydrated, plus the packaging is so chic to leave out on your bathroom counter.
6. Body Sunscreen
For my body and sunny days outside, the Supergoop! Full Size Play Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 50 Sunscreen is my favorite to use because it’s super lightweight and easy to apply. Plus it’s on major sale right now during the Nordstrom Sale for three bottles for $42!
My favorite beauty find of the past year has been Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter Primer & Highlighter. This product can be used so many ways whether you mix with your foundation, use just as a highlighter or wear alone. Overall though it gives your skin the most incredible glow and everyone will be complimenting you how gorgeous and flawless your skin looks.
