Oh hallelujah! Summer is almost here – my favorite time of the entire year! Since I live in New England, we have around 9 months of suck and 3 months of summer, so once that warm weather hits, it’s time for PAR-TAY!
Since summer is so fleeting in my neck of the woods, I don’t like to waste any time indoors. My summer beauty routine is simple, quick and efficient. I don’t have time to fuss and muss, especially with 3 kids, so I’ve developed a summer beauty routine that gets me looking presentable in the least amount of time. Okay, I know that probably doesn’t sound very impressive, but stay with me! I think you’ll be surprised…
I don’t have time nor the energy to wash my hair everyday. Yeah, just go ahead and stick your shock and horror back under your hat for another day. Seriously, who wants blowout their hair every single morning? Not me!
I have a chin-length choppy bob that I wash with TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done Shampoo and conditioner. When I get out of the shower, I very lightly squeeze my hair with a microfiber hair towel just to soak up the excess water but not dry my hair. (My hair is super thick so if I let it completely air dry, it would literally take several hours) I then work in (un)Done Sea Foam into my damp hair to create air-light waves that are soft and full of body. Before it fully dries, I spritz it with (un)Done sea salt spray to finish the look.
After sleeping on it, refreshing the look is easy. I just spray it with plain water, scrunch with my hands and I’m done! I can sometimes do this for one more day depending on how bad it looks after sleeping on it. If spritzing it with water doesn’t revive it, I just put my head upside down in the tub and get it completely wet without touching it or using any shampoo. Then I just squeeze it gently, pat my scalp dry with the hair towel and let it air dry. It doesn’t wash out the styling products, it just refreshes the look.
Recently, my skin care routine has been really simple and consisted mostly of LANEIGE Skincare Products from Target. In the morning, I wash my face with a cleanser, follow up with toner and moisturizer. In the evening, I wash my face with the same cleanser (or a makeup remover if I had a lot of makeup on) and then put on the water sleeping mask. (It’s AMAZING!)
The best product I’ve discovered that really simplifies my beauty routine is the LANEIGE BB Cushion. This 5 in 1 product has SPF, delivers deep hydration, perfect skin-evening color, complexion brightening, covers spot and blemishes and prevents shine all day long. This foundation is truly revolutionary! It’s the biggest time saver in my routine. After I put that on my face, I throw on some mascara, a little lip gloss and I’m good to go!
No beauty routine would be complete without Schick. The number one summer must-have is definitely silky, smooth legs and there is no easier way to get them then with Schick and Skintimate.
Everyone knows it’s best to shave at the end of your shower, after your legs are fully hydrated. I love using my Schick Intuition Revitalizing Moisture Razors because they lather up and moisturize your legs while shaving, with no need for shave gel. Talk about simplifying your beauty routine, right?! Shaving has never been easier.
If you need to wear a swimsuit or really short shorts, then opt for the Schick Hydrosilk TrimStyle razor. It’s an amazing 2-in-1 product that goes from a basic razor to a battery-operated bikini trimmer with the flip of a switch. This nifty device can be used in or out of the shower, with or without shave gel. It’s one of my favorite hair removal products.
