My 5 Favorite Products for a Natural Summer Glow
There’s nothing that says summer more than sporting a beautiful, natural summer glow! Whether you’re planning on making up for lost time this summer by traveling or hitting the beach, or you’re planning on having a more low-key summer, below are some of my favorite products to maintain the glow all season long.
Hydrating Facial Mist
Between the heat and blazing sun, a facial mist can come in handy to cool down and give your skin a fresh, dewy look. Facial mist has quickly become one of my favorite travel essentials especially with how harsh the heat and sun can be on your skin. Whenever your skin is feeling a bit dehydrated, a facial mist is perfect for doing the trick and leaving a stunning finish. It also works great to set your summer makeup, too!
Tinted Moisturizer (with SPF)
With hotter temperatures, the last thing I want is for my skin to feel as though it has anything too heavy on it. Tinted moisturizers are my go-to for a natural summer glow because they give a beautiful, light coverage while still keeping the skin moisturized! Luckily, it isn’t too hard to find a tinted moisturizer with SPF so you can continue to protect your skin at the same time.
If you’re looking to rock a stunning glow, a highlighter is guaranteed to do the trick. For my personal preference, I love cream highlighters just because I enjoy how easy they are to blend. Just applying a bit of highlighter right onto the areas where the light hits will make such a difference and is a fun way to spruce up your summer look! A powder or liquid highlighter can do the trick, too.
Hydrating face masks
The basis of achieving a natural summer glow can sometimes rely solely on how you’re treating your skin! Vitamin C sheet masks are cooling, moisturizing, and most of all, perfect for brightening your skin. Treating your skin once or twice a week with a hydrating mask is always a good idea!
A natural summer glow cannot be achieved without skin that is healthy and protected. The basis of protected skin in the summer (and all year round, really) is sunscreen! No matter if it’s sunny or not, sunscreen is always important to protect your skin from long-term damage caused by the sun. If you choose to wear makeup, don’t forget to apply your sunscreen beforehand.
At the end of the day, the key to a natural summer glow relies on good skin prep and products that make you feel your most confident self! What are your favorite products for a natural summer glow?
