My Favorite Summer Skin Products

Every season brings new challenges for keeping our skin healthy and looking its best. Summers is the sun, heat and depending on where you live, extreme humidity or dryness. Staying hydrated, limiting sun exposure and keeping cool can definitely help but there are also a few products that I have found keep my skin looking and feeling great all summer long!

1. Mineral Sunscreen

Sunscreen is the best thing you can do to protect your skin all year long. But it is especially important in the summer when the suns rays are the strongest and we are outside more. But the type of sunscreen matters. When you have the option, always choose mineral sunscreen over chemical.

Mineral sunscreen contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These are small particles that sit on the skin’s surface and physically prevent UV rays from penetrating the skin.

Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, allow UV light into the skin. Once the light is absorbed into the skin, the chemicals in the sunscreen create a chemical reaction in which UV light is converted to heat, and the heat dissipates from the skin. A clinical trial published in May 2019 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed that several of these sunscreen chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream at levels far above the amount at which the FDA requires topical medications to undergo safety studies to determine possible toxic effects. I shared much more information about this a few weeks, click here if you want to read more on this topic.

My favorite sunscreen is Arbonne’s mineral sunscreen. It protect’s your skin from the sun’s damaging rays with a sheer broad spectrum SPF 30 mineral face and body sunscreen. It’s formulated with the latest technological advancement of Zinc Oxide to help prevent against UVA (the sun’s skin aging rays) and UVB (the sun’s burning rays), so you can enjoy your time under the sun (or underwater!). Plus, it doesn’t include chemical UV filters. And, this moisturizing formula leave’s skin looking dewy with a hint of iridescence — and without the chalky white cast! Plus it has, Green Tea and Aloe Vera soothe with hydration, so your skin feels as good as it looks.

2. Gelee

For those days when I do get more sun than I wanted or spend a long day in the heat, I love using the FunSun Instantly Soothing Gelee with Aloe Leaf Juice. It’s an instantly refreshing and cooling gel for dry, parched skin. This lightweight gelee provides immediate hydration while also replenishing the skin’s natural moisture barrier. It has Chlorella for skin conditioning benefits, Green Algae, a marine-based botanical, replenishes the skin’s natural lipid barrier with moisturization to hydrate, keeps skin supple and leaves it with a soft, smooth, healthy glow and Aloe Vera hydrates and soothes. And it’s enhanced with the beloved seasource scent!

3. CC Cream

When wearing makeup in the summer, you need it to be light, stay put when sweating and have mineral sunscreen in it. This is where the Arbonne Intelligence® Pollution Defense CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen shines! Complexion perfection and environmental protection. It offers 13 skincare and makeup benefits in just a pump or two, has medium-coverage, with a radiant-finish CC cream. This product takes multitasking to a whole new level! Not only can it replace your primer, concealer, foundation and mattifying powder — the lightweight formula also creates a breathable “second skin” to protect all skin types from pollution, provides mineral-based, broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection against UVA/UVB rays and camouflages the dulling effects of stress and lack of sleep.

These are my 3 go to summer products that keep my skin in great shape all summer long. As always, feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
