It’s getting hotter here in Phoenix (but at least it’s a dry heat!) which means that now is the perfect time to plan out the best ways to protect your skin! These are my top 3 favorite drugstore skincare products to use year-round, but I always throw on a little more than usual in the summer months to show my skin some love!
- Rose Salve
I’ve always been a huge fan of vaseline in general. Seriously. It has a million uses, from being a makeup remover, to helping your eyelashes grow, to being the best cuticle cream, vaseline has your everything. This formula is basically vaseline infused with rose oil, making it smell heavenly! I use it on my lips every night before I go to bed and in the morning when I first wake up. I’ll also rub a little on my eyelids or on my cheekbones when the skin gets too dry. And don’t let the pink color fool you–this product is for everyone! Even my boyfriend is obsessed!
2. Facial Sunscreen
Okay, I admit it, I’m the worst at using sunscreen. Yes, I know the risks and I know that I live in one of the sunniest places in the US, but for some reason, it’s never been my thing. Luckily, I’m blessed with olive skin which tans rather than burns, but over the years, I’ve started to try to incorporate sun skincare products more and more. There are a million different kinds of sunscreen out there, but this one has to be my favorite. While it’s only SPF 70, the little bottle is perfect to toss into your purse and doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. It also smells like childhood beach days and key lime pie, which is a huge plus in my book!
3. Aveeno Lotion
Aveeno has, and always will be, my all-time favorite lotion. When I was little, I had eczema (which is basically horribly dry skin) and Aveeno’s extra strength lotion was a life saver. Whenever I have a bug bite, the first product I buy is Aveeno’s anti-itch cream. And for everyday use, I always turn to Aveeno’s everyday lotion. It’s non-scented, which is great when you’re like me and have to slather lotion all over your body after every shower! And it’s mild enough for both kids and adults to use. I think it might be the one product that everyone in my family loves and uses thanks to it’s non-oily, easy-to-apply nature.
So there you have it! My top 3 skincare products! What are your summer (or all the time) favorites?
