As I write this, I’m sitting on a balcony, watching the waves hit the sand. I can’t think of a better place to blog. All week long, I’ve been building sand castles, starting every morning with a Starbucks iced coffee and eating a diet that consists of mostly carbs and maple syrup. That vacay life.
Even though I may not be watching what I eat while I’m on vacation, one thing I haven’t been slacking on is my skincare routine. I can run off an extra vacation pound, but I can’t erase the effects of not caring for my skin! But don’t worry, I’m about to tell you just how I keep my summer skin fresh and trust me it’s easy.
When it comes to my skincare, especially during the summer when life gets busy and fun, I like to keep it simple;cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and protect. Before I went on vacation, I stopped at Target and picked up a few Neutrogena® products to keep my summer skin healthy and make my beach skincare routine easy and on point.
Now though June 10th, if you purchase three select Neutrogena products you get a $5 Target GiftCard, so it was a win-win! This special will also run again June 25th-July 1st, so the opportunities to save keep coming. I picked the Neutrogena® Pink Grapefruit Wipes, to make cleansing easy and quick, the Neutrogena® Pink Grapefruit Scrub to exfoliate and keep my skin bright and the Neutrogena® Oil-Free Moisture Lotion SPF15, to moisturize and protect my face!
While at Target I also grabbed a big floppy hat and a new pair of sunglasses to further protect my skin during my fun in the sun.
Let’s get into it, my summer skincare routine:
Morning Cleanse & Exfoliate
Morning and night, I cleanse my skin. You just have to! Typically in my morning shower, I will use the Pink Grapefruit Scrub to exfoliate and brighten my skin. I love the fresh scent of the Pink Grapefruit formula. Plus, it is full of Vitamin C and salicylic acid to fight breakouts. I’m not typically an acne prone person, but during the summer months when I sweat more and spend more time outdoors, I tend to breakout more often. So I like using a formula that keeps breakouts at bay.
Morning Moisturize & Protect
After cleansing I use the Oil-Free Moisture Lotion to moisturize and protect. I love how light and fresh this moisturizer is, plus it gives me daily SPF protection. I use it under my make-up, which also has SPF in it. Gone are the days of my youth where I took my smooth skin for granted and baked it in the sun. I’m all about protection these days!
After a day of fun, whether I’m at the beach of just playing at home with the boys, I like to cleanse, but make it quick. When I was younger I used to skip my nightly cleanse all together because I would get tired and lazy. Now, older and wiser, I know how important it is to clean away the day’s dirt and make-up. Since, I’m still a little lazy, I love to use a wipe in the evening. I can grab one and sit in bed if I want to. Neutrogena’s Pink Grapefruit Wipes smell fresh just like the scrub and are oil free, leaving my skin fresh and free of residue.
After I wipe my face clean , I put another dab of Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Moisture Lotion on to rehydrate my skin. While I don’t need the SPF protection at night, I still love the light and fresh formula and use it twice a day.
That’s it! My skincare routine is quick and easy, but keeps my summer skin fresh. Plus, Neutrogena is the #1 dermatologist recommended facial skin care brand and doesn’t break the bank!
I’m going to take my fresh skin down to the beach now, I’ll be sure to slather on another dab of Oil-Free Moisture Lotion SPF 15 to protect my skin! It’s back to reality tomorrow!
