Summer Glow- The Facial Products you Need

July 3, 2019 No Comments

It’s summer time and you need all the facial products for a summer glow! I got you! I am sharing my tried and true products that help me achieve a perfect sun-kissed look even if I have’t made it to the beach.

Achieving a summer glow starts with moisturizing the skin! It is easy for your skin to get dried out from more exposure to the sand, surf, and sun. Using products that provide the skin with moisture, keeps your skin from looking dull and lifeless. Yes, you can use bronzer to give you the glow. But all looks start with nurturing the skin so you have a great canvas. And if you are anything like me, the last thing you want is a heavy face of makeup in the humidity and heat. Here are my facial product recommendations for a summer glow. All products are linked in the heading and images.

Eight Products for Glowing Skin

Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Cleanser

I’s so easy to say YES to this cleanser! It is a cleanser, exfoliator and hydrator in one! Everything you need in one stick and without the mess. The stick makes it so easy to apply. I love that it has coffee in it to gently exfoliate your skin and then added coconut to moisturize. I don’t have a single reason why you won’t love it!

Rodial Glow Tonic

This product is one of my favorite and I am so happy my friend gifted it to me. I would have never found it otherwise! This tonic is full of vitamin C which exfoliates and illuminates the skin. After use, your complexion will look visibly smoother and brighter. It helps clean out your pores and overall your skin tone will appear more even since it removes dead skin cells. It truly helps you obtain a natural summer glow. I use it in the evening before bed after washing my face. Also linked is a very similar product from Pixi.

Dr. Brandt Hydro Biotic recovery sleeping Mask

This facial product is definitely the building block for getting your summer glow. The Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask works to optimize the skin’s ecosystem by balancing naturally occurring flora on the skin’s surface while fortifying the skin barrier. Using natural ingredients like tea and honey, the mask relieves redness and irritation on the skin. It is SUPER hydrating. A little goes a long way with this product. I woke up with smooth moist skin after only one use. If you don’t like night time masks, they also make a day cream which I do use, too.

Coola Sun Silk Drops

Guys, I can not say enough good things about Coola’s sun silk drops. They are AMAZING! Talk about summer glow. It is a full spectrum sunscreen that not only protects your skin but helps prevent aging. The drops are so light and are perfect to use every day alone or under makeup. They smell amazing too. Almost like cake so part of you just wants to lick it. ha! But don’t do that. I’ve used other facial sunscreens and still noticed some burning from the sun but these work hours after putting them on with exposure to water and the sun. A definite must for summer and all year round!

Revlon Photo Ready Rose Glow

The Revlon Rose Glow is the quickest way to achieve a summer glow. It is basically shimmer in a bottle so go ahead and glow girl! It is a primer but I use it with and without foundation. I put it on after using the Coola Silk Drops. It is a water based formula that boosts skin radiance while hydrating and illuminating the skin. Best part this product is under $15! It is super shimmery and caught my attention at the store and I am so glad it did.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Liquid Highlighter

If Rose Glow isn’t your jam then I have another highlighter for you. I love this Wet n Wild MegaGlo because it is super controllable using the applicator it comes with. You can easily add a nice highlight to the upper part of your cheekbones for the perfect summer glow. A little goes FAR! I’ve had this for a year now and it is still pretty full. Test it on your hand to get a feel for how much you need on your face. You can always add more. I have added this to a tinted moisturizer for a pretty glow and then added bronzer to highlight different areas. This is under $5 and comes in different shades.

Bare Minerals Dew Mist

This glow-giving setting spray locks makeup in place, hydrates skin, and refreshes the look of your complexion. It has natural ingredients that promote a vibrant looking complexion while hydrating the skin. It is the perfect spray for a mid day pick me up when you need hydration. I carry it in my bag and use it throughout the day. It is really light and very refreshing on the skin.

Pixi On-the-Glow

Last but certainly not least, is the Pixi On-the Glow moisturizing stick. This powerful stick is a combination of vitamins and minerals that instantly increase moisture levels. It is super convenient in the stick being the perfect size to throw in your purse. The best part of this product- it’s basically 3-in-1! You can use in on your face, body, or hair. Seriously the perfect product to help achieve a summer glow but also a must have for dry winters.

I hope you found this blog helpful! Keeping your skin moisturized is so important. A tan helps with a summer glow but can also cause serious skin damage. Always wear your spf and use these products to help you achieve the perfect look without the sun damage.
