Summer skincare is incredibly important. We need to protect it from the sun daily, keep it moisturized after a long day at the beach, and keep it looking fresh for all those selfies.
How do we do it! There are plenty of products on the market for every area of skincare, however it is Summertime and we want to keep things simple.
Just remember Protect, Moisturize, and Rejuevenate. Cleansing is important but In this blog we won't touch on that aspect of skincare. We all know that we need to cleanse and we have many ways of doing so.
Incorporating the above mentioned aspects into our routines naturally can seem a tad overwhelming. What to use? What's best for my skin? Etc, etc. This week we will break it down and show you how to do it simply and naturally!
