HOT summer temps are here and tan skin and humidity let you know the heat wave is here to stay for a while in Birmingham, Alabama! Many times it’s November before you can walk outside without breaking into a sweat. With this warm weather and summer glow rocking, I’m a lot less likely to wear full makeup during the summer, but in order to do that, I’ve got to have my skin care routine on point!
Usually during the summer, I break up with my heavy makeup for a much lighter routine (on a good skin day) of only bronzer, lip gloss, mascara, and occasionally eye liner on the top as seen in some of these pictures.
I’m one of those rare almost 30 year old’s who still occasionally breaks out. 🙁 What a joy. My mom has rosacea and sensitive skin and I have somewhat sensitive skin and am afraid rosacea may come with age. So, while some people can get away with going to bed without washing their face, I’m certainly not in that crowd. Here’s my daily skincare routine:
-Apply moisturizer with SPF
-Put on selfless tanner
-Apply eyeliner on upper lashes, mascara, bronzer and lip gloss
-Take off eye makeup with eye makeup remover
-Apply under eye cream with my ring finger (it has the lightest touch)
-Take hair, skin, and nails vitamin or at this time prenatal vitamins
I really hope with these steps I’ll help prevent more breakouts and wrinkles. Are you familiar with rosacea or do you suffer from rosacea symptoms like persistent redness yourself?
