Summer Skin Care + Giveaway

Summer can really take a toll on your skin. Exposure to the sun, heat, and chemicals can be very harsh and drying. To make matters worse we are exposing our skin more in the warmer months and wearing less makeup so there is pressure to keep it in tip-top shape. Here are some tips to keep you looking great! I'm also giving away some of the products below!

Wear SPF! Over the past three decades, more people have had skin cancer than all over cancers combined. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, so use sunscreen. Be sure to read the label and reapply as needed. If you think you're too cool for sunscreen because you want to be tan and cancer doesn't scare you, just remember that exposure to the sun will cause your skin to prematurely age.

Product picks: Coola Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30 in Pina Colada, Coola Classic Face SPF 30 (Win these below!)




Don't skip any areas. It can be easy to skip areas like lips and hands when applying sunscreen. It has been proven that exposure to the sun causes your skin to age faster. The skin on your hands is thin and wrinkles and pigments easier than other areas, so use a hand cream with SPF. The skin around your eyes is particularly fragile and requires extra protection from the sun.

Product pick: Coola Liplux SPF 30 (Win this below!)




Wear a hat. Wearing a wide brimmed hat helps protect your hair, eyes, and skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This obviously doesn't take the place of applying sunscreen but gives you extra protection for skin on your face, ears, and neck.

Product pick: Flora Bella 'Marcella' Raffia Hat



Exfoliate. Slough away the dry and flakey skin and reveal the smooth glowing skin underneath. This helps prevent your pores from getting congested and also helps improve hydration from moisturizers afterwards. I like to exfoliate my face and body one or twice a week. There's a lot of wonderful scrubs out there but you can always make your own at home. All you need is some salt or sugar and an oil like coconut, olive, or grapeseed.

Product pick: Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser



Battle Breakouts. Use a mask once a week. I see a huge difference in my skin overall when I use a mask once a week and when I don't. Try to look for something with glycolic and salicylic acids in it!

Product pick: Suki Resurfacing Enzyme Peel



Hydrate! This is crucial to healthy skin any time of the year. You tend to loose more moisture in the warmer months so be sure you are replenishing that moisture with plenty of water. This is crucial to the health of your entire body, so drink up!

GIVEAWAY!

I am hosting a giveaway for some goodies from Coola to help protect your skin from the sun this summer! Enter below! I tried these products out myself for you guys and loved them, so you're going to be getting some good stuff!

You can win one of each of the following:

Coola Liplux SPF 30 - This lip balm has a light scent even though it says unscented (which I am okay with) and really makes your lips softer after a single use so you're going to want to keep applying it, even if you're not out in the sun!

Coola Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30 in Pina Colada - I love spray sunscreens, they are just so much easier for me to apply on myself. This one smells amazing and isn't greasy at all. It also has some really good for your skin ingredients!

Coola Classic Face SPF 30 - I always like to use a separate sunscreen that is made specifically for your face to avoid breakouts. This sunscreen is very light, and doesn't make you oily or greasy.
