Today not only am I sharing this pretty floral kimono, but also a few summer skin tips to keep your skin glowing and hydrated all summer long! During the summer, I like to step up my skin regimen. Adding a few more products to my daily regimen allows my skin to stay hydrated and glowing. Recently, I visited my favorite spa (The Beauty Lounge) here in The Woodlands and had one of the best facials. More details on my experience below on #5!
1. Exfoliate for clearer, smoother skin.
Why: Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.
When: Perform in the mornings prior to toner, moisturizer, SPF and make-up application. Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!
2. Keep skin hydrated.
How: Up your regimen’s level of hydration with intensive masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturizer. Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity.
3. Make friends with H20!
Why: Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!
What you can do: Eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!
4. When in doubt, apply (and reapply!)
Why: It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen.: you must apply enough, and apply frequently. Studies indicate that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should.
How much: A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.
How often: Re-apply every two hours. Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.
5. Treat yourself to a spa day!
Why: Your skin and inner self will thank you! Whether you choose a 30 or 60+ minute facial, I promise it will relieve stress as well as encourage peace of mind and contentment all the while leave your skin feeling soft and clean.
How: Facial massage treatments increase circulation and the flow of blood, and they include a variety of creams, aromatherapy and oils that moisturize the skin leaving it feeling refreshed.
Sidenote: As mentioned above, a few weeks back I won (I never win stuff) a facial from The Beauty Lounge / Sara Bullard Artistry! My sweet friend, Rachel owner and artist recently relocated her salon + spa + boutique! When she mentioned adding more spa services + a boutique to her new location, I KNEW it would not disappoint! If you are in the The Woodlands/Houston area, stop by and check out her new space and do a little shopping in the new boutique! Needless to say, when I heard I won this facial I was pumped to explore more than just sitting in a chair full of foils at the newly reopened Beauty Lounge! For starters, my facial was so perfect, I’ve already booked a chemical peel for next month! Sara listened as I explained my “issues” and made different suggestions on how we could fix my concerns.
Products: Glo Therapeutics Y’all, these products are amazing and smell oh so good! Some of my favorites from the line are: Purifying Cleanser, Conditioning Mist, Oil Free Moisturizer and Super Serum. If you love your current products, trust me and do yourself a favor and get this Lip Revival, you’re lips will never feel the same! If you have any questions on these products, I’d love to hear/answer them! I promise, you will love the *magic* these products reveal! 🙂
For those of you wondering where I found this pretty floral kimono, you guessed it! The Beauty Lounge! My favorite part, I can wear this kimono as pictured or the pool/beach as a swim cover up! Loving this look for summer paired with my favorite cutoffs and wedges! Need a last minute gift? Need a trendy top for a weekend party? Need hair product? Looking for a new stylist? Need a heavenly facial? Look no further than one of my favorite places here in The Woodlands!
