1. Since I sweat more in the summer, I always get acne breakouts on my back. This acne body wash always does the trick!

2. I don’t self tan, but a few of my friends do and they swear by this self tanner. It’s fast drying and you won’t end up looking like a pumpkin!

3. If you want amazing summer skin, you gotta exfoliate with a body scrub.

4. I have oily skin, and during the summer it’s on overdrive. To get rid of the excess oil, I use a powerful clay mask.

5. A lip balm with SPF is a must to keep my lips moisturized and protected.

6. When the weather heats up, I always invest in a facial spray to rehydrate, refreshen, and re-energize my face. I’ve tried several but Evian is one of my favorite facial sprays. I also like to use the spray over my makeup.

7.  I never leave the house without applying my favorite sunscreen and because it’s summer, I reapply throughout the day.

8. When I’m at the beach or outdoors during the day for a long period of time, I don’t like to wear foundation. As an alternative, I use a tinted facial moisturizer with SPF protection. It’s perfect because it’s lightweight, offers sheer coverage, and I can layer with a foundation if I plan to go out at night.

9. Tend Skin is a must-have if you have razor bumps or ingrown hairs around the sensitive bikini line area. I swear it gets the job done and your man can use it, too!

Bonus: As we age, we start to see more sun spots pop up on our skin. Using a product targeted to decrease melanin production is a significant step towards sun spot prevention.

What are a few of your summer skincare essentials?


  1. Nice list of skin care products, thanks for that. One question though..

    I have oily skin so I don’t think I can use any kind of suncscreen, right? I need one that is made specifically for my type of skin.

    Do you know which one of the products you listed here is good for oily skin?

    I should probably mention that I am a guy 😀



    1. Hi Romy,

      I have oily skin too so you should pick a sunscreen that’s oil free. I wouldn’t recommend a product on this list because of your skin-type however, I’ve heard great things about Jack Black Sun-Guard Oil-free sunscreen from a few of my guy friends. It’s also water/sweat resistant which is perfect for the active male. You can check out their product line here—> http://www.getjackblack.com

      I hope this helps!


  2. Thanks Diana.. that helped a lot. I was actually looking for a good sunscreen lotion…

    it says on their site that it contains Organic Calendula Flower which soothes and calms skin with natural anti-inflammatory properties. So I guess this is good for acne too. ( I have a few pimples here and there).

    I’ll just have to figure out if I should use a moisturizer prior to applying this sunscreen… cause I need a good moisturizer as well.
