Ahh, summer. The season of never-ending cookouts and last minute adventures. Unfortunately, due to sticky humidity and extreme rays, summer can also be the worst season for beauty blunders such as greasy skin, out of control acne and smeared makeup.
Rather than allowing summer to ruin the appearance of your skin and makeup, stock up on these must-have products and enjoy the season with a new sense of confidence:
Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser
Thanks to Aveeno’s Clear Complexion collection of oil-fighting skin care products, even those of us with the greasiest of skin can regain control during the summer months. The foaming cleanser is designed to remove oil deep within pores and prevent future blemishes and breakouts caused by oil – all without drying out your face.
St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub
St. Ives is not only a thrifty brand of skin care products, but is also well trusted. The popular apricot scrub of yesterday has been improved and now aids in the fight against blemishes and blackheads. The scrub is great to use during the summer months due to its ability to quickly and gently remove dead skin, such as that caused by a peeling sunburn.
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
A lightweight moisturizer designed for daily use, this product not only protects skin from the sun’s harsh summertime rays, but also contains Helioplex, a substance designed to slow the process of aging in skin. The moisturizer is smooth and easy to use without having an overly greasy texture.
Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets
Perfect for on the spot and on the go oil removal, Clean and Clear’s thin Oil Removing Sheets are sure to save many a face during even the most sticky and icky months of summer. The sheets come in a tiny package which is easy to conceal in purses, handbags and even pockets. Simply rub a sheet over areas of grease build-up, such as the forehead or nose, and voila!
Burt’s Beeswax Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Cleanser
Acne is a year round problem for many of us. Sunlight, heat and sweat during the summer can cause acne and blemishes to become irritated, which in turn becomes more noticeable and difficult to successfully conceal. Instead of applying thick cosmetics, try a more natural alternative, such as Burt’s Beeswax’s Acne Solutions Purifying Cleanser, which is designed to soothe irritated acne while cleaning pores.
