From time to time I love sharing favorite products or talking about self care. Today I am sharing 5 skin essentials for summer and beyond.
Taking care of our skin should always be a priority but summer is the season to give it extra attention.
Maybe taking care of your skin has not a priority, I totally get that.
I seem to go through spells of really doing well with taking care of my skin and other times, not so much.
Skincare is one small part of our total wellness, but it is a large part.
A while back I did a series on health and wellness including skin are, you can read that here.
Why natural skin care
I am sure you have heard or seen all the information out there about our skincare and beauty products being laden with products that are not good for us.
Our skin is our bodies largest organ and it is important to be aware of what we are putting on our skin.
The FDA allows chemicals that are known to cause cancer.
Some of those known ingredients are parabens, phalates, formaldehyde and lead.
These are products that we should not be putting on our skin for any reason.
This is one of the main reasons why I am sharing clean skincare and beauty products.
Based on research I prefer to use mostly natural products without certain harmful ingredients.
Recently I was diagnosed with some skin allergies so I had to narrow down those products even more.
Beauty Counter has become my choice of quality, natural skin care and beauty products.
I wanted to share five skin essentials from their line that is perfect for the summer months.
Let’s start with the basics.
Starting with the Counter+ All Bright C Serum.
This is the best clean serum to give you instant radiance and glow.
This product has some amazing benefits such as:
- skin brightening
- reduces and protects against dark spots
- even skin tone
- minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
- antioxidant protection
Use this product after cleansing and toning in the morning, applying to the neck and decolletage and follow up with moisturizer.
After moisturizer it is time think about beauty basics for summer.
If your like me I never like to wear heavy makeup, especially in the summer.
Beautycounter has some amazing beauty products but I wanted to share two favorites with you.
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer is perfect for sheer coverage and a dewy glow.
It also contains mineral sunscreen, increases firmness and elasticity.
This lightweight product is perfect to use as your base foundation in the summer months or any time of year if you prefer lighter coverage.

Another beauty basic that is perfect for summer is the Beyond Gloss.
They have 14 beautiful colors that are perfect for the summer months and beyond.
Their lipgloss is not tacky at all and has some amazing ingredients such as jojoba seed oil and vitamin e.
Peony is one of my favorites for the summer season.
Aside from skincare and beauty products they have some wonderful sunscreens.
