Its June and it’s getting hot in Boston!
This is my favorite time of year since my favorite place to be is on the beach! I have some new “summer must haves” that I thought I’d share with you to help you get through the hot summer months.
My first two products I love are by Becca.
- Becca Bronzing Skin Perfector–
I initially got this product to give my skin a tan complexion but found that it if I wore foundation over top of it my make up wouldn’t stay put and I’d look like a hot mess after a couple hours. That said, if you’re going to the beach and you just want to add a little bronze to your face. A little bit of this on your face looks great and stays in place! But my favorite thing to do with this product is add it to my favorite moisturizer and rub it in my legs and arms to give my skin a beautiful glow! I’ve also noticed that it camouflages any imperfections like varicose veins.
- Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone.
I use this under my makeup to give me an all over shimmer. I use this as a highlighter. I will also mix this in with the Bronzing Skin Perfector and moisturizer to add a shimmer to my body! This is an all over favorite summer product! There are so many uses!
My next summer must have is something I’ve read about but just got around to purchasing.
- Rose Water– I purchased this one at Whole Foods
Rose water is so refreshing and the smell is heavenly! I use it as a toner and to help remove any makeup my cleanser didn’t remove. I use it over my foundation to lighten it up a little or blend it in. When my makeup is finished I use it as a setting spray so my makeup stays put all day. It’s wonderful on irritated or sunburned skin. This will definitely be a summer essential for me.
This is the perfect color for a “no makeup” makeup look. It blends seemlessly into my skin tone. It has a subtle shimmer, just enough to brighten your eyes without looking like you’re wearing anything. I also wear it as a base eyeshadow color when I want to look more “made up”. I’ve been using this pigment for years and I never get tired of it!
This oil is wonderful and the benefits are amazing! Rosehip is a dry oil so it can be used under makeup and it soaks right into the skin and doesn’t leave a slick finish on your skin. I use mine at night and wake up with refreshed moisturizer skin. This is a favorite for me!
Still one of my all time favorites. I use it to wash my face. I mix it with my Carrot seed essential oil and use it as a light everyday sunscreen. I mix it with Lavender Essential oil to calm irritated or sunburned skin. Check out my blog Here for more amazing tips on coconut oil.
