Get Your Skin Summer Ready!

It’s officially shorts season, woo hoo! Which means summer’s scorching heat is just around the corner too. Bummer. Sometimes the summer months can be just as challenging as winter when it comes to keeping skin moisturized. Between hot days, dips in the pool and soaking up some rays, my summer skin can get pretty parched. Applying moisturizer twice daily seems to be the only thing that helps. But if you’re like me, the sticky, greasy feel of some heavy lotions is totally unappealing on a hot summer’s day! This summer I’m adding St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotion Spray into my beauty routine. It effectively moisturizes my skin without the heavy lotion feel. After I step out of the shower, I just spray it on with the 360° even spray nozzle that sprays at every angle, rub it in, get dressed and go. It absorbs quickly and moisturizes as well as heavy lotions. Plus it leaves a fresh scent on my skin that lasts all day. St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion comes in three different formulations, each with its own unique scent and purpose.

Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C Fresh Hydration Lotion leaves skin feeling energized and refreshed. It’s the perfect lotion for a hot day with grapefruit extract and vitamin C. It’s fresh fragrance includes notes of grapefruit, orange and lime, as well as soft musk patchouli. Naturally Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter Fresh Hydration Lotion soothes dry skin with 100% natural moisturizes glycerin and Shea butter. It smells wonderful with fragrance notes of white floral, gourmand, honey, almond and coconut. The shea butter formulation contains moisturizing vitamins A, E and F, as well as fatty acids which are known to place moisture back into thirsty skin.

My favorite, Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion transports me to a tranquil beach day. It has coconut milk and orchid extract which leave the skin silky and smooth. The fragrance is the best part with Hawaiian jasmine, guava, mandarin zest, pineapple, Lily of the Valley and pink orchid, coconut milk, creamy musk, vanilla and blonde woods. Check out this video to see how I’m incorporating St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion into my summer routine.
