Summer has arrived here in NYC and with the shift in weather comes a change in my product line-up.
As the weather warms up I love to pare down my winter routine to a few simple yet beautiful products that keep my skin glowing and my mood lifted. I love and highly suggest rotating your products to meet your skin’s ever changing needs and a change in the weather is no exception. Here’s what I’m loving for summer:
Butter Bhakti Oil – Traditional creams, lotions and moisturizers can be too heavy for summer weather in the city. I prefer to swap in a body oil and the Bhakti Oil from Butter Elixir is my current go-to. It beautifully hydrates skin and leaves the most exquisite scent that’s perfect for warm summer nights.
Shiva Rose Radiant Rose Water – As temperatures in the city begin to soar, a gorgeous hydrosol is a must-have in my bag. Shiva Rose’s Radiant Rosewater is the perfect midday pick me up. The fine mist is instantly cooling and refreshes my makeup and smells absolutely divine. A quick spritz with this and I’m ready to go.
In Fiore Pur Facial Oil – During the humid summer months I find that my skin doesn’t require a lot of hydration so I try to keep it light with In Fiore’s Pur Facial Oil. The oil is thin and just a few drops smooths over skin wonderfully to balance oily spots and hydrate any dry areas. After cleansing I spritz my face with rosewater and then apply the oil for a balanced base that’s perfect for any makeup I may choose to wear.
RMS Master Mixer – For that ethereal golden summer glow I turn to the Master Mixer from RMS. On its own the warm rose gold hue adds a vibrancy and luminosity to my skin for that fresh from vacation look. I also love to layer it over eyeshadows to warm up the colors, pick up the light and add a subtle sheen and sparkle to my eyes. Tata Harper Aromatic Bedtime Treatment – At the end of a long summer day nothing is more enticing than crawling into bed for a good night’s sleep. Before my head hits the pillow I apply a little bit of the Aromatic Bedtime Treatment to help calm my senses and lull my mind into a deep and restful sleep. The next morning I awake revived and energized, ready for any adventure the day may have in store.
