Products That Will Take You Into Summer

When the seasons change so should your beauty products.  Finding products to fit your need between seasons can sometimes be challenging.  It is important not to just change your skincare but also your hair care because your hair is also sensitive to the weather and climate change. Here are some products that I have been using to make sure my skin and hair are looking and feeling their best.

best skin care

For skin care I’m all about hydrating it before summer and getting that summer glow. I start out by a great face wash that won’t strip your skin.  I have been loving Le Metier De Beaute Replenishing Oil Cleanser, it helps hydrate your skin while removing all your impurities away.  It will help remove excess oil, makeup and it is gentle and great for all skin types. I follow that up with PCA’s C&E Strength which will help brighten your skin tone, evening it out and will help minimize fine line and wrinkles. Then you need a really good serum and I love Osea’s Hyaluronic Sea Serum.  It is light weight, helps hydrate your skin and helps with fine line and wrinkles. It doesn’t just sit on your skin it absorbs into it leaving it soft and dewy. I also am obsessed with facial sprays. I use them all day long and try all the ones that I can.  I can’t stop using Osea’s Sea Vitamin Boost. The spray is a great, it will gently mist everywhere evenly. It helps hydrate your skin, it’s full of antioxidants such as algae, pomegranate and resveratrol.  I haven’t found a face cream that I am dying to share so I didn’t add one to this list.  When I do find one I will let you guys know. A good face mask is a must too.  Right now I am loving Patchology’s FlashMasque Hydrate.  It’s a sheet mask that takes only 5 minutes to see results.  It hydrates your skin and if you think you are looking a little tired it will give your skin that pick me up that you need.  It will also give your skin a little plump so that you will look more youthful.  You’ll love it!  Don’t forget your body!  I am loving La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ it helps repair dry skin.  It is a prebiotic body lotion that improves skin texture.  It is great for all skin types from Eczema to babies two weeks and up.   You will use this all summer long!

best hair dryer

For some reason when the weather changes my hair gets really flat. Before I shampoo I have been using Rene Furterer’s Complexe 5 Stimulating Plant Extract. It is great because it will help you get a healthy scalp.  If you use dry shampoo a lot you need to add this to your hair care regimen.  Dry shampoo can clog your hair pores if you over use it which will lead to hair loss. This scalp treatment will help promote healthy hair and scalp and removes impurities. Use it once or twice a week before washing your hair and you just leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse it out and follow it with your shampoo of choice.  I have been using John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Core Restore Shampoo and Conditioner. Even though I have thick hair this has helped put volume into it.  It is designed for fine and thin hair but it works well in my thick heavy hair.  It has proteins that help strengthen your hair and hold style.  I curl my hair about every other day and when I use this set I notice my curls look bouncier and more volumized. I am obsessed with my new T3 Micro Cura Luxe Hair Dryer. I have three hair dryers and this one is my new favorite.  It has a sensor that when you are just holding it the dryer will pause.  It is an IonAir Dryer so that will help eliminate frizz, leaving your hair feeling so soft.  It has different heat and speed settings, it’s light weight and will dry your hair fast.  It also comes with a soft curl diffuser so if you have curly hair this will work well for you too.  This is my first T3 product that I have used but I need to try their curling irons and travel hair dryer.  You are going to love this! To finish off my look I love curling my hair.  I love long loose Victoria Secret’s hair. I love the Hot Tools 1 1/4″ 24k Gold Handle Curling Iron.  It heats up quickly, it’s really pretty and gives me the salon curls that I want. It is so easy to use and if you travel a lot like me it is easy to travel with.  If you want beach waves it can give you that look too.  My curls last all day long without having to use hair spray.  It’s the best.
