So for me when summer rolls around, my already dry skin is feeling even MORE dry. Being a SoCal girl, it can get very dry here and during the summer months, I spend a lot of time at the beach and outdoors, which dries out my skin even more. It’s essential for me to find products that really help moisturize my body but don’t feel heavy and gross because that’s the last thing I want to feel in hot weather.
I mean, think about it… During the Spring/Summer months we transition to lighter clothes and lighter makeup so doesn’t it make sense to switch to a lighter lotion with the same effects? Enter in Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion. This lotion made my super dry skin feel very moisturized without that dreaded sticky feeling. One of the main things I have to praise is how fast the lotion absorbs into the skin. There really is nothing worse than putting on lotion and having to wait in the hot weather for it to dry when sometimes it just ends up leaving you sticky the whole day. This lotion contains Active Naturals Colloidal Oatmeal, is dermatologist recommended, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, non-greasy and can be found at national food, drug and mass merchandisers everywhere.
Next up is the Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen – the one I have is SPF 30. This sunscreen is relatively light, has a clean, fresh scent and absorbs completely into the skin. It also didn’t seem to affect my makeup application at all, which sometimes I find is a problem with some other sunscreens. I also like that this one is sweat and water resistant for up to 80 minutes so you can have fun in the sun & play around without having to worry! I really do love this one because it gives superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while hydrating skin to keep it soft, smooth and feeling healthier than before you went in the sun. I do always recommend still wearing a hat and sunglasses as you want to protect your face as much as possible! Also make sure to apply this product 15 minutes before sun exposure!
