Summer is around the corner finally and I am super excited to share my tips with you for flawless summer skin with only 4 essential products. Don’t you agree that summer is the season to show off more skin and less makeup? As someone who has a super busy schedule, I was always looking for a skincare regime that did not require too many steps and also help my acne prone skin under control, especially in the summer. These 4 products have been my best friends for over 3 years. I seriously can’t live without them and I would love to share my secrets with you today.
My first favorite product is this PH Normalizer from Skintelligence (Price: USD$18.95, CAD$25.04). This 240ml bottle can last you up to 6 months of usage for such an affordable price. Having a balance pH level is important to achieve flawless summer skin regardless of what skin type you have. When your pH level is off, your skin does not really absorb any of the products you use on your skin either.
For someone who has super oily skin like me, this is the step that I cannot skip regardless of the season. I found that this product keeps my skin less oily and fresh throughout the day. The big bonus is that it does not contain any alcohol like a lot of toners out there. Over time, I have noticed a decrease in excess oil that my skin produces as well.
This product only contains all the natural botanical extracts, it is also safe to use as a conditioner on your hair and your whole body. It helps me keep my oily hair under control in the summer as well.
The second product I want to share with you today is a magic product. It is the Lumiere de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid (Price USD$61.95, CAD$81.85). For those of you who are struggling with acne spots, dark spots and skin pigmentation, and redness, this product is for you. After I was able to clear out most of my acnes, I had to deal with tons of dark spots and acne spots that are super difficult to remove quickly. This product has been helping me so much with those problematic areas.
If used daily, this product can really show you instant results in less than 7 days. What I love the most about this serum is that it does more than just soothing and brighten up your skin. This serum also contains Sodium Hyaluronate, which is a vital moisturizer and lubricant found naturally in our skin. Hyaluronic acid provides superior, long-term hydration through its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This property of sodium hyaluronate also helps promote healthy skin elasticity and flexibility. Having this ingredient in your skincare helps ensure that your skin is getting enough hydration and when your skin is properly hydrated, it will also produce less oil. Plus, who doesn’t need hydration in the summer right?
The third product that I usually use after prepping my skin with PH Normalizer from Skintelligence and treating it with Lumiere de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid is the Lumiere de Vie Serum Concentration (Price USD$86.95, CAD$114.88).
If there is a product that I have to choose to go on a trip that can do the job of 5 or 10 other products out there, this is THE PRODUCT! Fully packed with many advanced, premium ingredients in the skin care industry right now, this concentrating serum has helped me clear out my acne in a much healthy way (no more salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide). I usually apply this on after the Lumiere de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid and I am good to go. I found that moisturizers in creamy texture often leave my face oily. However, this serum is super light on my skin and it helps my skin hydrated, firm and super smooth. Even after I remove my makeup at the end of the day, my skin still feels so amazing and smooth.
Both serum bottles come with a pump so they are so easy to use and super travel-friendly.
Last but not least, I want to talk about one of the best eye cream products that I have found. It’s the Lumiere de Vie Eye Balm (Price USD$44.95, CAD$59.39).
First of all, let me tell you something. This eye balm is the bomb, especially for that price. I have never found such an eye cream that really delivers what it promises to deliver. Flawless summer skin also means you have to look vibrant and fresh. I love that this eye balm has light-diffusing pigments that instantly give you a flawless looking appearance. It does not leave my skin with any oily residue like a lot of eye cream products out there which helps my concealer go on smoothly and stay put throughout the day.
That is it! Flawless summer skin with only 4 essential and super affordable products. Have you found your summer skin essentials? Share with me, please!
