I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed 3 different issues going on with my skin this summer. Below are 3 products that I’ve tried and loved to correct each problem.
Complaint: My face gets parched when I’m out in the sun, the pool and from cold blasts of AC.
Solution: Laneige has a set of masks that I found at an end cap in Target near the hair products section. For $5, you get a Water Sleeping Mask that you can apply before bed and rinse off in the morning as well as the Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask. I noticed a HUGE difference in my skin after using the yogurt mask. I applied it, left the product on for about ten minutes, then rinsed my face with cold water. My skin looked refreshed and definitely plumped up instead of dehydrated and tired. It looks like you just stepped out of the shower after a good, sweaty workout that leaves your skin super soft. I love that this mask also smells like a smoothie. Yum!
Complaint: Getting in and out of the pool leaves legs and arms looking flaky and scaly and again that darn AC has the same effect.
Solution: Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream is another one of my current favs. The cream is a rosy/tan color (see picture below)that gives your skin a soft glow and it’s packed with moisturizers so no more gator skin from the chlorine. Tip: Apply this immediately after you pat dry from the shower. The smell on this one is great too! The light fragrance seems more like an expensive brand of lotion than one from the drugstore. This sells for about $12 at Walmart.
Complaint: On my face, particularly my driver’s side, I am starting to see brown spots and freckles caused by the sun. I even wear SPF 30 in my moisturizer religiously! WTH?!
Solution: Try Ambi Cream. The intense summer rays can cause sun spots even when you have on SPF. I began applying this both in the a.m. and p.m. for about a week now and I’m already seeing a difference without experiencing any burning sensation on my sensitive skin. It may take up to two weeks to see a total improvement. The tube will last you forever because a little goes a long way. You can find it at any drugstore for about $8.
There you have it, 3 amazing skin products to get you through summer and won’t put a huge dent in your wallet.
