weekender essentials

i may have just a few short weeks left before our little chickadee makes her debut, but you had better believe i am soaking up every drop of summer before she arrives.

on a day when i’m planning to sweat it out poolside, i don’t bother with deep cleansing. cetaphil gentle skin cleansing cloths are the perfect thing to refresh and prep my face for my favorite facial SPF from equitance. i love how it glides on, brightening and moisturizing as it dries quickly. then I coat my lips in coola liplux which protects while soothing and improving any previous sun damage.

since relaxation is the name of the game before our lives change forever (in the best possible way!), i pack up my turkish towel from sabun home, aviators, and my kindle. i’m currently reading diane keaton’s ‘let’s just say it wasn’t pretty’ and i absolutely love it. the theme of the book centers around beauty and diane’s wisdom is priceless – and funny!

out and about, I keep clarins sunscreen care oil handy. it’s water-resistant, non-greasy, and you can use it on your hair. everything is left silky smooth and it also protects against the drying effects of salt water and chlorine (along with the harmful effects of the sun). for lips, fresh’s sugar lip treatment in tulip is a pool bag must, just be sure to keep it in a cool spot (like actually in the cooler).

i take a less fussy approach to hair in the summer heat and this trifecta is just the ticket to letting my natural curls run a bit wild. whether i’m dousing my head in the shower, pool, or ocean, my cricket comb is always close at hand and so is mark. surf spray. the comb gets out all of my snags without pulling out any precious strands and the spray gives gorgeous texture and volume that’s not crunchy or dry. if all else fails, i keep a mane message hair tie on my wrist and whip things into a curly pony.

after sun, my routine is simple. cetaphil gentle skin cleansing cloths come to the rescue once again to remove all of the sweat and sunscreen from my sensitive skin. they are effective and ultra soothing, giving me a clean canvas to work from. once my skin is clean, i rub lierac silky serum onto my face and neck. it works to repair and moisturize my sun-kissed skin, leaving things smooth and comfortable.

voila! my weekend skincare ritual, from day to night.

how do you care for your skin in the summer?
