Radiant Skin Care Secrets for Glowing Summer Skin with Alba Botanica

Let's talk about skin care, in the summer! 

How often are you taking care of YOUR skin? 

Are you washing your face every night with a gentle cleanser?

Do you use a toner after you cleanse your skin and remove all of your dirt and makeup from the day?

Well, there are a few important steps to note.

One is to ALWAYS take off your makeup before you go to bed.

I've heard so many friends of mine who don't take off their makeup before going to bed and all I can think is YIKES. Your skin needs time to BREATHE, MAKEUP FREE LADIES!

If I could remove my friends' makeup for them I would...and trust me, I have before! I know how delicate your skin is and how you need to treat it the right way to prevent premature aging that can happen right in front of your eyes.

If you have time always keep some makeup removing wipes on your desk next to your bed for a quick swipe. 

Even better...a face mask will do the trick to soak up the excess oils clogging your pores from the dirt and grime of everyday living. You should apply a gentle yet hydrating mask to your clean skin up to 2 times a week for the ultimate relaxation. I've been obsessed with face masks for years now. They are the one product I never skimp out on and enjoy mixing up every now and then.

Whenever I pick up a brand new face mask, because somehow I end up collecting them as much as I collect new pairs of shoes, I look at the ingredients list first. 

Is the product full of chemicals? Will the product promise to tone my skin and dig deep into my pores to extract all the nasty stuff out?

Yes, these are things to question before you purchase just any mask product that delivers promise after promise to get you that GLOW you've been dreaming of...

I choose products like the Hawaiian Detox Warming Mask from the Alba Botanica ®  line to give my skin the detox it deserves after longgggg days of wearing makeup. I mean, most days I include foundation, bronzer, blush, highlight, mascara, eyebrow gel, and even concealer to remove on a regular basis!

I need something that will be helpful for my skin and has ingredients to detoxify every pore. 

Did you know that 92% of people who tried the Hawaiian Detox Warming Mask said their skin felt deeply cleansed after using it? Well, count me in that 92%, too! 

I think the mineral-rich volcanic clay is made of some serious magic...this mask was wonderful at tightening my pores and leaving my skin SO soft afterward.

So, what else should be included in your everyday summer skin care routine?

This word gets a bolded, italicized and underlined because I want to put so much emphasis on sunscreen. 

If you think wearing the sunscreen that comes with your bottle of foundation is good enough you are wrong. I'm sorry to tell you this but sunscreen in the foundation you love just won't provide you with the right amount of protection throughout the day. 

You need to wear face sunscreen as well as make sure you choose products that are easy to use, like the spray bottle of Hawaiian Sunscreen Coconut Clear Spray from the brand Alba Botanica ®

This Hawaiian Clear Spray smells like you've been walking around the tropics for days...embracing the breezes while sipping on a delicious coconut infused cocktail!! I not only love the smell of this sunscreen, but I appreciate the science behind the Alba Botanica ® brand, too.

Other perks of this awesomeeeee sunscreen spray?

NO synthetic dyes.
NO parabens.
NO artificial colors.
100% vegetarian ingredients.
Coral Reef SAFE.
NO animal testing.
NO harsh sulfates. 

The broad spectrum protection will ensure that you will receive a generous dose of 50+ SPF so you don't have to worry about burning up if you keep reapplying this spray every hour. 

As much as you need to spray yourself down prior to exploring the beach, you need to reapply it just as much! 

Call me a sunscreen-obsessed Florida girl on a mission to tell you all the reasons to enjoy the sunshine by protecting your body from the harmful rays at the same time. 


And it sells for UNDER $10! Crazy. Cheap. Suncare for the summer that you need to invest in. Take care of your skin because you only have ONE skin to live in for the rest of your life!
