Spring to Summer Beauty Essentials

The weather is finally changing, the humidity is starting to set in and that means also swapping out beauty favorites to accommodate our changing skin texture! Today's post is all about some of my recent favorites, some new, some old, for a change in season for the warmer months ahead.

Recently I have been getting a couple questions on my tanner and this is the one I have been using for the past few weeks. I definitely prefer this to drugstore brand Jergens and St. Moritz, which I have both used religiously and I'm so glad I bit the bullet because you really can't compare the long lasting effect and blended texture of St. Tropez to the other brands. I apply 1x a week, at night and rinse off in the morning.

This blush is a gorgeous shade of burnt orange/pink, best for those with medium to dark or olive complexion. I've had this sucker for maybe two or three years and I just hit pan a couple months ago! Blends so well, the color pay off is great and definitely lasts longer for my dry skin compared to a wet-blush and beauty blender.

Y'all. This texturing spray is heaven sent. I did a quick insta story a couple weeks ago right after I had curled my hair and the volume was gorgeous. I just do a quick spritz at the end, a little at the root and then finger comb + scrunch to get that Jessie James Decker type of messy-do.

This stuff. Smells. SO good. I recently saw Emily Gemma rave about this on her blog and knew I had to try it. I love wearing my hair straight but my hair is so awfully damaged that it's hard to keep it looking healthy and shiny. Directions for this spray are to use after straightening, let sit for a few minutes before styling and voila! My hair is SO soft and looks so much shinier, without being greasy, with this spray. Perfect to tame your tresses when the humidity kicks in and you really want the precious time it took to actually STYLE your hair to pay off against the summer heat.

I love Skin Food brand, anything! I used to buy their face masks (ya know those 9.99 ones at Sephora in different colors?) for .11 each on Amazon! Ships (usually free, actually) from Korea but so worth it. I paint this mask on my nose and chin when my pores get considerably clogged from the heat, let sit and gently wipe away to avoid any redness. It's super non abrasive, great for sensitive skin and doesn't leave your face all dry.
