My Summer Essentials

Since summer is here it’s time to get my skin ready for a clean, fresh toned natural summer glow. As much as I love makeup I’m an mature bronze skin woman whose now getting more into skincare regimen and products that’s going to help me age gracefully. Having good skin is consistent…like breathing, it’s second nature.

Eating right and exercising along with drinking plenty of water to help flush toxins from the body is just part of having great skin. Some of us are born with amazing skin, but for us that wasn’t…we need to start taking more care of our skin. It’s best to start while you’re young and over time the benefits will be reaped.

Having a good skincare regimen that’s specific for your skin type will help you combat any skin issues. Finding the right skincare mixture is a trial and error for me. When I find the right products for my skin needs it definitely shows when I’m wearing makeup or not. Yet I always switch it up during each season. Summer time, my skin gets more on the combination side and during winter time very dry.

During each season the main denominator is hydration… keeping my skin hydrated, so I choose products that delivers all day hydration and moisture for a dewy fresh bright look.

Personally I don’t need anything during summer, cause I don’t really wear it due to my skin sweating makeup shifting… can’t do it. So these items helps me out.

I’m never out of these wipes. Everyone should have these in their makeup arsenal and bag. Neutrogena facial wipes are the OG of facial wipes. These just so happens to be my favorite.

Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are the perfect wipes for me during the day. With me unloading trucks and stocking product it’s dirty and grimy so my face is always itching…they towelettes has been a life saver when I can’t wash my face. My skin is cleansed, soothe, clean and hydrated.

Neutrogena Daily Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are definitely a staple in my makeup kit and personal usage. Without having to use a cleanser before going to bed I use these for a quick lazy clean up. My skin feels clean non sticky, tight or dried out. Removes all traces of makeup and waterproof mascara… that’s a good thing.

This is my first time trying CoverGirl TrueBlend Base Business Skin Primer Moisturizing. Addicted to primers that’s for those who need more hydration in their primer. It’s a white creamy texture that gives a nice smooth surface. Very excited to try it out.

I’ve seen this powder for years and never tried it. So it’s no time like the present and my only issue is that it has talc listed as the first ingredient… don’t want to smother my skin or break out. It smells so nice. I remember seeing my grandma using this and she looked flawless and beautiful.

I’m having mixed emotions right now about this…I’ll give it a try and test it out tomorrow…seening how my skin feels during the course of the day and see how my makeup holds up. It’s going to be a scorcher, so very light powder and full-on moisturize.

If you tried any of the products mentioned above, please share your thoughts.
