We can go on and on about how frakkin' H-O-T it is nowadays, but that's just the way it is. We can't stop summer from coming and the temperature from rising, but we can always adapt and most especially, protect ourselves from the risks that come with the season (I'm talking about heat stroke, acne, clogged skin, and sun damage).
My game plan for this season is to overhaul the products I use and use ONLY the ones that belong to the following categories: gel, emulsion, watery, sheer, invisible, light, oil- free. This plan has been working great for me so far: minimal to zero breakouts, super fresh- looking skin, and zero clogged pores.
And these are the game changers in my summer skin care routine-I also included my favorite makeup finds for last month in this favorites list. Sharing with everyone why these babies became my favorites for April 2015 after the break. ;)
BENEFIT COSMETICS SPECIALIST DREAM SCREEN SPF 45 PA+++
I just realized, the bottle is facing against us lol. :p
Anyway! This unique sunscreen by Benefit Cosmetics has an oil- free formula and silky-matte finish, and it is TRULY invisible on the skin. It yields SPF 45 PA+++, but it just comes off as an invisible primer on the skin. Its slightly "oily" texture makes it a good alternative to moisturizer as well. I'm digging this sunscreen!
ETUDE HOUSE MOISTFULL SUPER COLLAGEN LINE
This super refreshing line is very suitable for this hot weather and oily and combination/oily skin types. This range has been quite good to my skin so far and I gotta love its freshening, hydrating effect to the skin!
Call me fancy, but this pricey water will be a life staple for me now because it's so useful in alleviating skin irritations! It's not called "Miracle Water" for nothing!
COVERGIRL READY, SET, GORGEOUS FRESH COMPLEXION OIL- FREE FOUNDATION
This fluffy, light foundation by Covergirl provides decent coverage without the foundation feel. I found myself wearing it often last month and I think that will go on until this summer ends!
Oh, I finally found a multitasking concealer that covers both my dark circles and face spots really well. Also, this is the lightest cream concealer I have ever used in terms of the feel and I love it!
A new favorite lippie shade of mine from Happy Skin. Hold My Hand is such an easy-to-wear color and I like the way it makes my skin look blushing and healthy.
That's all for my beauty favorites last month. Care to share yours? :)
