the temperature has (finally!) crested above 80 twice in the last week. not only did this glimpse of summer have me banishing all of my coats to the faraway closet, but it also signaled that the time has come to switch up my skin routine to accommodate the warmer weather and increasing humidity.
when it gets hot, i find that light and simple is best on my skin. in the mornings, i smooth my face with a steaming hot wash cloth and in the evenings, i use cetaphil gentle skin cleanser to remove my makeup, followed by mario badescu seaweed cleansing lotion. it’s no wonder that cetaphil’s mild cleanser is a best seller. i love that one pump covers my entire face and that i can actually feel it breaking up my makeup while i brush my teeth. a few splashes of warm water and my day is all but washed away.
in my makeup bag, i’m switching my matte blush out for this urban decay highlighting palette packed with featherlight formulas. i’m also opting for huge, smudge-proof lashes, tinted rose lips, and warm, orange-red fingers and toes.
for some reason, changing up my hair routine always proves to be the most problematic, but i’m dedicated to fighting frizz this season with an arsenal of products. cricket’s conditioning comb is helping me keep things smooth, while pantene’s new serum and the occasional drybar blowout are just the ticket for making me feel flawless. when all else fails, bright mane message hair ties create a sleek ponytail that’s always chic.
with the warmer weather comes a sun-kissed tan, and while i assuredly slather the SPF on daily, i’m never going to be sad to see my fair tones fade to bronze. to keep summer skin hydrated, cetaphil dailyadvance lotion is pure perfection. it glides on, leaving no trace of stickiness, and i love knowing that it won’t break me out.
to top things off (and even if I’m wearing nothing else, because it’s just too darn hot), i reach for avon ultra glazewear lip gloss in darling pink and nars radiant creamy concealer. the combination brightens up my face, zaps under eye circles and conceals blemishes completely without feeling heavy.
