Skincare change up for the Summer

Not sure about you but in the summer it seems my skin seems to suffer the most. My skin gets really dry and my face breaks out. Not a great time for that to be happening. Being by the pool with a broken out face not good. I realized that it had been awhile since I switched up my skincare for a summer routine. 

In the summer I don't tend to wear as much makeup as I do in the fall and in the winter. Living in Arizona is interesting if you have combination skin. So I trade in my foundation for a tinted moisturizer. I was walking around Walgreens the other day looking for a new tinted moisturizer. The old one I used last summer they no longer make. The nice lady in the beauty department recommended that I try No.7. She also mentioned that it was on sale and hypo-allergenic ( an added plus if you have sensitive skin). I purchased a box in medium. So I far I like the product. But I will post an update in a later blog. 

Facial wipes! Yes you know those great cloth things that take off all your makeup at the end of the day. Yeah, it was time to get a new package, of those as well. My favorite facial wipes are Yes to Blueberry Cleansing Facial wipes in 25 count. I love the smell of these clothes, fresh blueberry scent all over my face. Yes, please. The 

 Another thing I did was get another bottle of my favorite body scrub (St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub).My dermatologist recommend that I use it to help improve my skin, so I decided to try it.  I've been using that scrub for three years, that is the best product for getting rid of dead skin. I'm always amazed on how much skin improves after I've used the product each time. Having combination skin has always been a hard thing to deal with. But having a good scrub has made a huge difference. Less breakout and a lot less blemishes on my face.

Keeping your skin healthy and protected is really important. Having a daily rotundness for your face. Will make a big diffidence the long run. Specially now a days. It's a full time commitment to staying with good beauty products.

Plus since everyone is taking picture with one another. Then there is the social media aspect of it. Come on, admit you how many times have you changed your profile picture. Because you looked better in the new one that you just took. So keeping your skin in good shape will help improve your selfie on your next Instagram picture (without a filter)!
