As summer arrives, we’re often too busy updating our warm weather wardrobes and hitting the beach to worry about skincare. But warmer temps mean more of our skin’s showing and needs an extra dose of pampering for all those skin-bearing summer adventures!
Whether you’re headed to breathe in the briny ocean air or going on a road trip (like me!) with your besties, it’s important that your travel tote is filled with all of the essentials to keep your skin protected from the elements…hot weather, salt water, humidity and chlorine can really take their toll on your skin! I am heading out to California on the long weekend for a much-needed break (can’t wait!) and here are some of the must-haves I will be packing for the trip : skincare essentials (like sunscreen and St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions), sunglasses, a UV protective hat, a big scarf and some snacks.
I don’t set out to get a tan and am always sun smart when outdoors by wearing sunscreen. While sunscreen is the most important skincare staple for summer, keeping our skin hydrated is also imperative because that extra heat & humidity and extra sweat zaps out moisture from the skin. But who wants the heavy lotion feel on their skin when it’s sweltering hot outside…not me! That’s where the new St. Ives Smooth & Glow Apricot Spray Lotion and St. Ives Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion come in to lighten things up!
With my dry skin, I always make sure to moisturize every day regardless of the weather but St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions have made it so much more easier and faster for me! I love that they’re continuous spray lotions that are so easy to apply and the lightweight formula absorbs (and dries) very quickly without a sticky or greasy feel. Made with 100% natural moisturizers (like glycerin and shea butter), these lotions provide long-lasting hydration to keep my skin silky and smooth all day.
Another (big) plus is their soft, refreshing scents especially the new St. Ives Smooth & Glow Apricot Spray Lotion that has fragrance notes of apricot, freesia, nectarine and passion fruit….it’s the perfect summer scent for me! As for the St. Ives Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion, it contains coconut milk and orchid flower extract and has a deliciously sweet floral scent with notes of guava, mandarin zest, Lily of the valley, pink orchid extract, Hawaiian Jasmine and vanilla, that’s right up my alley!
Not heavy or greasy at all, St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotions moisturize really well while feeling light and fresh on skin with their perky, refreshing scents! These lotions will be the perfect sidekicks for all of my summer getaways!
