Happy Monday! Here is the Midwest today it is HOT! The humidity is crazy and part of me doesn’t even want to even go outside…but I have things I need to get done. In the summer my skin usually only feels comfortable for a few hours and then I can feel my face starting to get oily. I’m in my 40’s, but I still have combo/oily skin so in the summer I find myself making a few changes to my skincare so that my skin doesn’t look (and feel) like an oily mess. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite summertime skincare items that I’ve been reaching for…
Lancome Hydra Zen Gel Cream This moisturizer has a lovely gel texture and is lightweight on the skin,
Laura Mercier Blurring Primer This primer feels cooling on the skin and helps to control shine.
Tatcha Dewy Serum Don’t be scared by the name of this serum… it goes on so light, plumps the skin and makes my skin feel hydrated, but not greasy. (A little on the pricer side, but well worth it!)
Urban Decay All Nighter Brightening Makeup Setting Spray. I saw this when I was looking for setting sprays and loved that it had Vitamin C to help brighten the skin while setting my makeup at the same time!
So there you have it, these are the main skincare items I reach for as soon as the temperatures start to rise. I hope this helps you out if your experiencing oily skin too.
What’s your favorite skincare item for the summer?
