No matter where you are this summer, keep your face soft and beautiful with these products.
Travel in Refreshment
You may have just traveled 13 hours or 3 hours, but there’s something about being cramped in a small seat that always makes skin looked tired and haggard. Luckily, there’s a product out there that will help you look refreshed and relaxed. Before you leave and right before you arrive, spirtz some facial spray to give your face a pick-me-up. Try this Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. Available online at Mario Badescu, $7.
Make Your Makeup Stick
Traveling in a hot, sweaty or even dry climate? Your makeup may not be able to hang. Try using a non-liquid makeup if you know you’re going to be sweating it out, a powder base is less likely to melt away. Even a cream-based foundation can work, like this NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation, $38. Make sure to wear water-proof mascara and powder blush so it’s less likely to melt off. Finish with a makeup setting spray like this Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray, $14, in travel size.
Keep Summer Breakouts at Bay
Because it’s hotter out, our pores tend to clogged with the extra sweat our face is producing. Not to mention we tend to get a little shinier due to the heat, thus clogging our pores and creating breakouts and blackheads. Though we love summer, we don’t love this part. Any of our recommended mud masks will help keep your skin under control. Another way to help keep blackheads away is washing with this St. Ives Apricot scrub, $5. If you’re skin decides to go absolutely crazy this summer and you can’t seem to get your breakouts under control, try DERMAdoctor’s Ain’t Misbehavin’ Medicated Acne Control Serum, $48, that works wonders for adult acne.
Tip: Try a product that contains sulfur as it helps clear acne.
Lock In Moisture
If you live in a dry climate where there is little to no moisture in the air (Arizona, we’re talking to you!) it’s important that you give your skin the moisture it may be missing. Any of these organic skincare lines are perfect for hydrating your skin and keeping harsh chemicals away. We would also recommend hydrating with an all natural oil on your face once a day. This Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil Light, $48, is gentle enough to moisturize skin without irritating it.
