I know summer is already going to end. This is a very late post. Nevertheless, I wish to share the products – my summer essentials – that have helped during summer to keep my skin clear, oil-free, healthy, glowing and reduce breakouts. Also in some places (like my home town Chennai), summers have not yet ended, so I hope you find this post useful. And read till the end, I have some surprise discount coupons for you if you wish to buy these products. So let’s get started.
Every summer has been horrible for me as I have numerous breakouts, flare-ups and acne. This summer I have managed to get it under control somehow. So I am sharing my summer essentials which has helped my skin to remain healthy and glowing.
My Summer Essentials
Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser, Scrub, Mask:
I have already mentioned this in my previous post on current favorites. I have acne-prone skin and the condition gets worsened in summers. Cleansing your skin is the first most important step and acne-prone skin needs a cleanser which will deep cleanse the pores without over-drying the skin. If there is one product which has controlled my breakouts and got me through summers with minimal acne (I just got 2-3 pimples in the last 3 months ????), it has to be this product. I totally love, love, love this and would highly recommend it to people with sensitive, acne-prone skin.
Ma Earth Botanicals Lavender Facial Scrub:
You need to scrub your face atleast 3 times a week in summers to keep your skin clean and clear clogged pores. There’s nothing gross than seeing a nose full of blackheads and whiteheads ???? . Blackheads and whiteheads are a common problem during summers due to excess oil secretion. This Lavender Facial Scrub from Ma Earth Botanicals does an excellent job. It is gentle on the skin while also providing thorough exfoliation and gives a healthy glow to the skin.
Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub:
Another scrub which is affordable and effective on blackheads and whiteheads is the Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub. It is best for oily, acne prone skin people as it contains salicylic acid. You can notice immediate effects right from the first use. And since the scrub particles are very minute, it can be used daily also.
Beauty Secrets Premium Anti-Tan Face Pack:
Tanning and sun burns are a big concern during summers. Look for anti-tan face packs which will remove the sun tan and give a fresh look. I have been using the Beauty Secrets Premium Anti-Tan Pack and it worked wonders on my skin. The face pack looks luxurious with lot of natural, herbal ingredients. It helped me a lot in getting rid of tan and brightening up skin complexion.
Matru Ayurveda Anti-Tan Neem Chandan Ubtan:
I would recommend you to use a ubtan 2-3 times a week in summers to get rid of tan in arms and foot. My favorite pick is the Matru Ayurveda Anti-Tan Neem Chandan Ubtan which deep cleanses the pores, cures acne, and removes tan effectively. Read my detailed review here.
Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask Purifier:
Clay masks are a must-have summer essentials. They help to detoxify skin, clear pores, remove blackheads and whiteheads, reduce oil secretion and purify the skin. I like to use the Natio Clay & Plant Face Mask purifier. It contains kaolin clay, bentonite clay, lemon, palmarosa and sesame which help in absorbing impurities and refines skin texture.
Loreal Paris UV Perfect Even Complexion SPF 50+ PA++++:
Never ever skip sunscreen while going out. Not only does it cause sunburn and tanning, but it also damages skin and cause premature aging. Use a light-weight sunscreen during summers so that it doesn’t make your face more oily or cause you to sweat. Loreal Paris UV Perfect Even Complexion SPF 50+ PA++++ is perfect as it contains high spf of 50 and broad spectrum UV protection PA++++. What I like most about is that it is non-greasy, light and quickly absorbed by your skin while also evening out your skin complexion.
Blend It Raw Beauty Evening Primrose Oil:
Now you might think on seeing this in the list – An oil in summers! But using the right facial oil can actually reduce and balance excess oil secretion. I use the Evening Primrose Oil by Blend It Raw Beauty as its very light-weight and doesn’t make my face look oily. It moisturizes the skin well and with regular use, I can see my skin is more healthy, glowing and luminous.
Kama Ayurveda Pure Rosewater:
Carry a small face mist in your handbag so you can refresh your dull and dehydrated skin when you are out in the sun. I like to spray Kama Ayurveda Pure Rosewater on my face to refresh my tired and dull skin. The fragrance is so pleasant and calming and immediately relaxes you. Another option is the Jasmine Water by Blend It Raw Beauty. I carry this in my office handbag and totally love it.
TVAM Aloe Vera Gel Gold Dust & Honey:
I use aloe vera gel not only in summers but during all times of the year. Aloe vera gel helps to calm down sun irritated skin and quench dehydrated skin. Am currently using the TVAM Aloe Vera Gel with Gold Dust and Honey. On weekends when am at home, it acts as a light-weight moisturizer, making my skin plumper and supple and also contains additional goodness of gold dust and honey.
Iraya Saffron Elixir:
Many of us skip moisturizers in summer. But it is not a good habit. I would suggest using a light, gel based moisturizer to hydrate and moisturize the skin. Am using the Iraya Saffron Elixir which is gel based and contains saffron extracts for brightening the skin.
Health & Glow Green Tea & Milk Oil Control Sheet Mask:
Lastly, sheet masks are very useful in summers to quench sun burnt skin and restore the lost glow. Use sheet masks with tea tree, green tea or cucumber to cool and soothe the skin. I got the Green Tea & Milk Oil Control Sheet Mask from Health & Glow.
So these were the products that I have been using throughout this summer. Most of them were got in sale at 40%-50% discount or Buy One Get One Offer. If you wish to buy these products, wait!
