20 May

Ah, summertime. Our favorite time of the year! You’ve got your summer weddings, your barbecues, your vacays and days spent by the pool… need we say more? But with summer also comes hot and sticky weather, which means it’s a great time to refresh your beauty routine and keep your skin in check. Instead of telling you to go splurge on an expensive facial, we thought we’d share some of our favorite at-home summer skin fixes.

We recommend starting off your summer skincare routine with an amazing drugstore find that so many gals we know swear by, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. It’s as gentle as you gets and leaves your skin feeling oh-so-soft. It’s mild yet effective, and perfect for daily use on face, and even body. Then, after cleansing with Cetaphil, you can play kitchen beautician and whip up a yummy cleanser, scrub, or smoothie to beautify from the inside out!

First up, our DIY papaya, lemon, honey, and yogurt mask

Time to exfoliate with a yummy homemade scrub! We used this recipe and added mango to make it extra exotic.

Summer skin here we come!

With warmer temps and shorter hemlines on the horizon, you’ll also want to keep your gams soft and smooth with Cetaphil DailyAdvance Lotion. It’s gentle enough to use as a facial moisturizer too, but we like to slather this product on as a body lotion after the shower or pool. It’s ideal for dry, sensitive skin.
