  • Summer Skin

    Writing I may not know.....but skin, skin I know! Ok....I might have borrowed Carrie Bradshaw's "Men I may not know, but shoes....shoes I know" and tweaked it to make it my own. It's also my second Sex in the City reference this week.... There was a marathon....I got sucked in. Anyway...skin....

    I have tried a ton of products over the years and have pretty much gone back to H2O brand products every time. I do have a few other brands I throw in there and the mix of all of them work great for me. Let's also not forget that we need to hydrate inside and out..Water, water, water! It's good for you and your skin will thank you for it!

    You definitely need to wear a sunscreen year round, but it's even more important to wear one in the summer! I'm not just talking about lathering up with your favorite body sunscreen either. I'm talking about your face, ears and neck too. These days, most makeup lines have some sort of sun protection in them but I would still use one underneath my makeup. Don't forget to protect your lips with an SPF lip balm. Not protecting your face from the sun leads to premature aging of the skin ladies!!! Do you want to look older? I don't! 

    Here is a link to 10 different sunscreens to put on under your makeup. #4 is the brand I was telling you about.

    You don't have to break the bank for good skincare! The one thing that I personally think you should splurge on is eye cream. It's my favorite skin care product!! You are going to pay $35+ for a good one but believe me it is worth it.

    So we would love to know what your favorite skin care products are...even your favorite sun protection for the face! Let us know and you will be entered into a drawing to win a Distinctively Hers gift card! 

    Amanda's Favorites:

    H2O's Face Oasis Sea Foam Cleanser $22

    Benefits: Refined Finish Facial Polish $23 - I'm a scrubaholic so I use this daily 

    Benefits: Moisture Prep Toning Lotion $30

    H2O's Face Oasis Sea Foam Moisturizer $36

    OR - I love both of these products and switch between the two.

    Benefit's: Triple performing facial emulsion - Has an SPF 15 $32

    Benefit's: It's Potent Eye Cream $34

    OR - Again...I love both so I switch it up

    I also love the Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Cleansing Towels (get them anywhere...for like $7)

      Simple – Revitalizing eye roll-on. Love it! Reduce puffiness. It feels cool on my eyes as it has cucumber in it. I like that it adds more moisture to my eyes in addition to my eye cream.

      Image Skincare – Vital C Hydrating Anti-aging Serum. Love this in the summer as it is so light weight! Feels clean and light on my face and doesn’t make me oily.

      NeoCutis Anti-Aging LUMIÈRE Bio-restorative Eye Cream with PSP® — again, light weight! LOVE THIS… a bit pricey, but only need a very little amount and lasts me forever! This is my big splurge item.
