Hello my friends! Can you believe we are already itching dangerously close to fall? I always feel like after the 4th of July, we have a few more weeks of summer before the back to school madness begins. Of course, while the stores may be advertising all of the sweaters and boots and pumpkin spice flavored everything, we have a solid month of humid and sticky weather ahead of us. With such drastic weather changes living in a four season state, it is always important to modify my skincare and beauty routine during the summer months. I have rounded up my five Beautycounter products for summer. They are perfect for keeping your skin healthy, balanced, and rocking that sunkissed glow.
Five Beautycounter Products For Summer
This magical peel has been surrounded by SO much hype. But it lives up to every last expectation. Acne scars? On in. Fine lines and wrinkles? Done. Dry and uneven skintone? Easy. Seriously, I have spoken with ladies with so many different skin types, and yet they all see amazing results from this peel. You apply it to a clean face at night and sleep with it on. That is it. No burning, no peeling it off. It is just a quick application 2-3 times per week before bed. I wake up with glowing skin every single time I use this.
I don’t know about you, but with summer comes extra sunscreen, sweat, and time spent outside to clog my pores. I love using cleansers that have exfoliating properties, and the nourishing cream exfoliator does a great job at smoothing your skin while also being incredibly gentle. And it smells delicious. This product is so gentle that it will work on your skin year round.
It is a no brainer to grab sunscreen in the summer. This was one of the first products I had to use on my children that I felt so uneasy about. I tried to find ‘safe’ options on the shelves of the stores I shopped, but if it was deemed safe, it often didn’t provide the sun protection I wanted. The countersun sunscreen is AMAZING in terms of safe ingredients, and goes on so well and blends in nicely. If you have ever used a natural sunscreen, you know the sacrifice is often a slimy white layer that is impossible to blend in. Countersun goes on and blends like a dream, smells great, and provides amazing protection. My boys have been free of any sunburns after a long summer spent outdoors!
The properties of charcoal and its ability to draw out impurities is incredible. So it makes sense that this charcoal bar leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean. I tend to use it 3-4 times per week, and sometimes every day during the summer when I am feeling extra oily. It draws out oil, and helps to reduce blemishes. Again, a must have if you have oily skin and struggle to keep it under control during the summer months!
This is one of my absolute FAVORITE products. It has SPF 20 in it, and is a nice everyday moisturizer that provides a subtle tint to even out your skin tone. I will note that since it is not a true foundation, it will not hide blemishes or major skin imperfections. But in the summer especially, I like to let my freckles show through and look as natural as possible. This moisturizer feels SO good on my skin; like it is being pampered without feeling weighed down. I wear it in the linen shade, but could likely go one shade darker in the summer.
While it is always so easy for me to talk about the incredible performance of these products, I always come back to the reason WHY this company is so amazing. While the United States bans 30 cosmetics ingredients (which is shockingly low compared to over countries), Beautycounter bans over 1,500. To find products that provide the comfort of being safe while also delivering and allowing me to invest in my skin, is such a blessing.
