Hey Wild Child!
Just because summer is right around the corner doesn’t mean your summer glow has to wait. Get your skin ready to be kissed by the sun with these five fabulous glow-getting skincare products!
#1 Botaniko Body Scrub
This mother + daughter duo has created the BEST natural skincare line (I’m obsessed.) They have an 80 acre farm here in Alabama where they grow, harvest, and turn all their beautiful yields into kick-ass skincare products. I seriously cannot speak highly enough of this brand.
This is the best scrub I’ve ever used. THE BEST. I’ll tell you why. Unlike other scrubs that are runny and feel “barely-there” on the skin, this one is like a scrubby paste consistency that is so easy to scoop out and actually sticks to your skin! There is virtually no fallout until you decide to wash it away. Uhm, WOW.
Okay, but will it make you glow? Here’s the scoop. When you exfoliate your skin on a regular basis, you are scrubbing off the top layer of dead skin that makes your skin dry and dull allowing for a fresh, new layer to shine through. Regular exfoliation helps you keep your tan for longer (if you regularly tan) and coupled with moisturizing everyday it will help you stay glowing and reduce wrinkles! (Phew, I’m done!)
#2 Yeouth Serum
This skincare brand checks every box you have! Not only are they vegan, BUT they are also cruelty-free (vegan, duh), sulphate free, paraben free, fragrance fee, GMO free, + made in the good ole’ USA. Like I said, all the boxes.
Their 30% glycolic acid peel will actually transform your skin. While this isn’t a product you should use everyday – or even once a week- it is a powerful tool to have your beauty arsenal. Using this product every one to three months will help to rejuvenate your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and make you GLOW GIRL.
Keep in mind! Don’t use this product when you will be spending time in the sun!
#3 Pacifica Ultra CC Cream in SPF 17
Speaking of sunshine, you know you should ALWAYS wear an spf on your face (and body) everyday when you go outside! Okay, so we might know that, but it doesn’t mean we always do that. I get it.
For a long time I never wore spf on my face because everything I used from sensitive skin sunscreen to spf for babies seemed to always make me break out – like in an ugly way. SO, one day on an unbridled shopping spree at Whole Foods, I decided to branch out and try a this new product – and it was life changing! It is an spf that acts as a moisturizer and a light-coverage foundation to start off your makeup routine.
Wow wow wow. I love this oil. L’Occitane has been one of my favorite skincare brands for years. Let me just say this must be what heaven smells like, because damn I could die and go straight up every time I get a whiff. (Excessive, I know. But forrealz it smells AMAZING.)
It is a super luxurious almond oil that glides on the skin and leaves it feeling soft and dream-like. I glide it on my face and neck at night as the last step in my skincare routine. Oh, and Eugene can’t stop telling me how good I smell when I wear it. Maybe it’s more than just a nice skin product. (;
#5 Skin Gym
This new hot commodity that is adored by celebs everywhere was created by one of Eugene’s lady friends! How cool is that? She is currently blowing the F up and I think that’s really cool. The beautiful and artfully-crafted products are just as cool as she is, and yes, they really do work.
The idea behind Skin Gym is that with the cool and smooth face roller you can massage and rejuvenate the the skin and muscles in your face leaving you with smoother skin, a more even tone, and a glow you haven’t seen since you were a kid. Yes, please!
Couple these five fabulous products with a sun-kissed glow (from a bottle or the beach) & you will be set for all summer long.
