This summer has really taken a toll on my skin. I’ve always had issues with my nose being red, but this summer it has been a lot worse. I used to have a really complicated skincare routine, but I’ve dialed it back in the warmer months to give my skin a break and I’ve been pretty happy with my new results. My nose is still red, but it’s less puffy and angry in the morning, and I’ve noticed less breakouts and less blemishes, which is a win, right?
In the past I have been known to have a really complicated skin care routine, loaded with scrubs and masks and toners and sprays and night creams and spot correctors, but I decided to tone it down and get a lot more natural. I elminated my long list of cleansers and makeup removing products and went with a brand new product – Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil.
I know what you’re thinking, Cleansing OIL? But I can tell you with 100% certainty that although it’s OIL, it’s definitely not oily at all. In fact, it’s amazing and not only cleans my skin wonderfully, but also removes makeup like a champ! Burt’s Bees is known for creating amazingly natural products, all of their products are at the very least 99% natural! This new product contains Argan and Coconut oils, so it’s never oily, just naturally moisturizing.
So I wanted to share with you guys my Glowing Skin Care Routine, since my skin has been looking so much better recently, and I know you all love to hear about new products!
I start with a wet face, massage a pump or two of the Cleansing Oil onto the face, massage into my skin and then rinse with water.
I follow it up with the Natural Acne Solutions Pore Refining Scrub. I am a HUGE fan of exfoliating my skin, it can get really dry in the desert weather, so getting rid of dead skin is a HUGE part of getting my skin to glow.
Next, to really achieve that shimmering summery skin, I do a very quick and simple makeup application. I can’t wear a ton of makeup during the summer because of the heat, so I have a quick 10 minute routine I do that gets me looking fresh and clean with glowing skin. I have so many people ask me what I do to look like I am glowing from within, and I’m finally going to share my secrets!
I am OBSESSED with facial highlighters, so I use not only a liquid one mixed into my foundation, but a powder one to finish my look as well. I add a pump into my liquid foundation, and apply with a flat topped foundation brush. I then do a light wash of warm nude colors on my lids to create a subtle deep crease, adding a bit of the darkest color along my lower lash line. I place a shimmery champagne color on my lid for a pop of light and finish it off with some lengthening mascara. To create a natural highlight, I go in with a makeup sponge and lightly dab some concealer along my nose and under my eyes, blending outward. Then I dust the tops of my cheeks with powder highlighter and apply a nude color to my lips.
The whole thing takes me under 10 minutes and is a light and natural looking makeup look for summer. You look bright, glowing and put together, without looking over the top.
