It’s that time of year again, when the sun is shining, vacation mode has begun and I can’t get enough of the outdoors. At this time of year I shift my makeup and skincare routine to a pretty fast and effective daily ritual focusing on protecting my skin from sun damage and environmental factors. Here are my top beauty picks to help combat those rays, look effortlessly polished and glowing in minutes.
Summer Tip #1: Protect your assets
1) A large brim hat effortlessly chic and protects your face, neck and shoulders from overexposure to the sun.
2) Origins Age-Defense Eye Cream with White Tea SPF 20: Perfect for my sensitive eyes, this lightweight, hydrating treatment with antioxidant-rich white tea instantly renews and brightens my under eyes for that well rested look.
3) SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50: this lightweight sheer coverage tinted sunscreen adapts to most skin tones without a white cast. Apply it in under a minute to even out your skin tone and protect your skin all day.
Summer Tip #2: Own it! Get your butt into a swoon worthy suit, feel confident and enjoy the weather
1) Full Piece: Mei L’ange Swimwear is offering you 20% off your eneitre order using promo code NORTHERN20. What can I say? I love the retro feel and flattering cut of a well made one peice bathing suit.
2) Rodial SUPER FIT Tummy Tuck: this concentrated skin firming formula helps improve skin tone and elasticity. Gemmoslim™ and fast-acting wheat protein help improve elasticity and texture for smoother and tighter looking skin. I’m LOVING this cream, and it’s not only because I had a baby this year… it’s my beach body in a bottle.
3) Vichy Mineral 89: This should be your daily skincare fix. This lightweight face moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid and 89% Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water makes my skin more resistant to visible signs of aging caused by pollution, stress and fatigue. It provides 24-hour hydration with a scent free formula for my sensitive skin.
Summer Tip #3: Get you Goddess on! Aim for an effortlessly natural sunkissed glow
1) Vita Liberta Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum: this serum contains anti-aging actives that firm and plump the look of skin while giving you sunkissed glow. It delivers a made-to-measure, natural-looking tan, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and conditions skin. I like to add a few drops into my daily moisturizer.
2) Jouviance Pro-Corrector 3 in 1: this professional corrector instantly conceals dark circles, redness, signs of fatigue and other blemishes. A little dab will do ya to instantly conceal a few tiny imperfections without a heavy full coverage foundation feel.
3) NUDEStix Sheer Eye Color: with one swipe of this crayon instantly transform the look of your eyes. It’s that “no makeup” look with no fuse.
