I think we're all feeling it - summer literally around the corner and the doors are opening all over! Don't get so busy catching up on fun that you forget to nurture that beautiful face and body of yours!
If you’re not into a multi-step beauty routine, especially during summer, don’t worry. Your skincare doesn’t have to take a lot of time. The key is to arm yourself with products that multitask but still deliver results. Check out this 4 step, easy skin-care routine that you can get excited about for summer.
If you aren’t into double cleansing, make sure your cleanser does it all. Look for one that removes dirt, makeup, and dead cell buildup, as well as excess oil, without stripping your skin. One of our favorites is Euro Clinicals AHA/BHA Cleanser, with natural glycolic and salicylic acid that’s deep cleaning but gentle for most skin conditions. It will help improve skin tone and texture and won’t over-dry. If your skin is very dry or sensitive, try Euro Botanicals Green Tea Cleanser, a lotion-based product that’s perfect for warmer summer weather.
2: Moisturize and Protect
Although we always recommend using a serum (and especially hyaluronic acid – all skin types can benefit), a moisturizer (Raw Elements Tinted is moisturizer and SPF in one) is plenty for a beauty minimalist. Your moisturizer should provide your skin with plenty of hydration. If you’re using a separate SPF product, try our Lemon Gel Crème underneath – it’s a serum to gel-crème moisturizer that plays well with SPF. At night, swap out for something heavier, like Euro Botanicals Advanced Moisture Crème which is fast absorbing as well as hydrating.
3: Eye Gel or Cream
The skin surrounding your eye contour is thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face, so give it a little extra care – it’s one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Our Eye Contour Gel (right out of the fridge) soothes and helps reduce puffiness. Euro Botanicals Eye Crème is contains shea butter for a richer, more hydrating formula.
4: Lip Care
Protect your lips from sun and wind so lip balm is key to make lips to look and feel soft and supple. Our favorite, of course, is our Avocado Lip Balm. Avocado oil is a fast absorbing emollient oil that softens your lips and it’s all natural.
