Summer is here and it is HOT, HOT, HOT! I love being able to spend my days at the beach, and pool, but things like heat, Chlorine, and salt water, can take a toll on our skin and hair. I have been using a few really helpful products in my Summer beauty routine that can be found at Rite Aid stores to help keep my skin and hair healthy during the Summer.
During the Summer months I try and keep my beauty routine as minimal as possible. It is so important to stick to a consistent beauty routine, not only in order to see results, but also for your well being.
Certain products in my Summer beauty routine can be used daily, weekly, or monthly. You will find that some beauty and wellness products work best when used sparingly, while others require constant use to achieve your desired results.
In the morning when I wake up, I always head to the bathroom to shower. This helps me to wake up and cleanse my skin for my morning routine. After cleansing my face, I apply the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Cream with Retinol. This rich moisturizer delivers hyaluronic acid and the highest concentration of Accelerated Retinol SA deep into the skin’s surface quickly and effectively, to smooth the look of fine lines and instantly plump with moisture rich replenishers, leaving your skin visibly smoother and younger. I love that it fades the look of deep wrinkles, especially crows feet, and brightens my skin tone. You will notice visibly younger skin in just one week! I finish up by applying some SPF and simple makeup.
After my morning beauty routine, I eat a healthy breakfast and usually have some errands to run and then I head out to the pool, beach, or park with my kids for the day. A product that I always keep in my bag with me on-the-go is the Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist. It’s perfect to spray on your face anytime your skin is feeling dull or just needs to be refreshed. It’s super hydrating and unlike a lot of sprays, this one doesn’t leave any residue on my skin. I love that it works on my skin even after my makeup is applied. It is made up of 96%-99% naturally-derived ingredients that is free of parabens, petroleum, silicones, microbeads, dyes, and sulfates. I just hold it a few inches away from my face, and spray about 3 pumps whenever, and wherever I am. For an even more refreshing experience, keep it in the fridge so that it feels extra cool against your skin.
Once I get home, I am exhausted and just want to shower and relax. This will also usually include a face mask, a good book or some Netflix, and my weekly hair treatment if my hair is due for one. I use the L’Oreal Elvive Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Hair Balm. You can use this product weekly, or monthly as a deep conditioner, or a hair mask. It repairs the 5 signs of damage which include split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness, and dehydration. My thick, curly hair definitely suffers from all of the above, especially during the Summer when I channel my inner Mermaid diving in and out of the salt water. Another huge plus about this product is that it is the Top rated hair treatment on lorealparis.com. It received 4.4 stars!
After rinsing out my hair treatment, I follow up with my Summer night beauty routine. I cleanse and exfoliate my skin, and then finish up by applying the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Regenerating Cream with Retinol. As you can see, this product is to be used morning, and evening. I’ll then finish off my Summer beauty and wellness routine with a glass of lemon water or green tea, and then off to bed so that I’m well rested to do it all again the next day.
