My 10 Minute Beauty Routine

10 Minute Summer Beauty Routine

When the summer heat hits, makeup melts, hair curls, and sweat ensues. It’s not the prettiest picture of a southern belle but it is the reality of living below the mason-dixon line. In order to live radiantly, I really try to streamline my makeup and beauty routine in order to keep oily skin and stickiness at bay. Summer is the time to pare down your beauty routine and embrace the 10 minute beauty routine.

My low maintenance look usually consists of pressed powder if needed, bronzer, a pop of blush, mascara and a swipe of pink lipstick. 80% of the time, I end up pulling my hair back in a low pony or in a top knot and letting my natural texture run wild. Once my hair and makeup are done, it’s time to banish any scaliness on my legs, elbows, and hands with the new St. Ives spray lotion. And sometimes on a lazy Saturday, I’ve been known to head to the pool with just some big sunnies on my sunscreened face, because sometimes your face just needs a break!

The St. Ives® Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion and St. Ives® Smooth & Glow Apricot Spray Lotion are the perfect compliment to your skin to put on in a snap! It makes application quick and painless and helps prolong your beautiful summer tan by keeping your skin quenched.

While both lotions smell good, I’m partial to all things coconut and beachy smelling so I adore the coconut scent. My co-workers were swooning over the Apricot though! The lightweight formula is filled with natural moisturizers that absorb almost instantly to replenish the moisture in your skin.
