Ahh, summer. Sunny beach days, hours in the pool, and glowy, gorgeous skin. We all want our skin to look its best in the summer, when the sun brings out our best features and leaves us with a natural glow. Skincare is extra important in the summer too– don’t ever forget the sunscreen! Here are 5 products you absolutely need to have your best skin ever this summer.


Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser $38


A good cleanser is key in the summer, when there’s so much facial build up from sunscreen, makeup, and sweat. Dermalogica’s Clay Cleanser absorbs excess oil for a deep clean– you can say goodbye to all that buildup. In addition to absorbing all that oil, the cleanser is soothing and cooling– leaving your face feeling refreshed and calm. It’s definitely our go-to cleanser for the summer, and we love the way it cools us down after spending the day in the heat.


Bella Schneider Beauty Naturals Cupacu Super Hydrating Beauty Oil $65


Summer skin doesn’t show the signs of dehydration as much as it does in the winter, but trust us: you still need deep hydration during these months. In the heat, you’re sweating out tons of water, and you need to replenish your skin’s natural balance. Enter: Cupacu’s Super Hydrating Beauty Oil. This serum smells heavenly and will give you the lightweight hydration you need in the summer.


Patchology AquaFlash Gel Moisturizer $35


We love a good lightweight water or gel-based moisturizer all year, but it’s especially necessary in the summer. Heavy creams can weigh you down in the summer, but Patchology’s AquaFlash Gel Moisturizer is extremely light and absorbs quickly for maximum hydration.


Kiehls Glow Formula Skin Hydrator $38


We all know that glowing is the best part of summer skin. Achieve that natural look with Kiehl’s newest Glow Formula– a product designed to be multi-functional. You can rock the formula by itself for a natural look, or incorporate it into your regular makeup routine as a highlighter. I’ll be using the Glow Formula all summer for natural, beachy looks.



There are tons of sunscreen options to choose from this summer– from Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen and Drunk Elephant’s Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense  to Coola’s Classic Face Sport and Tatcha’s Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen. Think about where you want to use sunscreen in your routine– as a moisturizer at the end of your skincare routine, as a primer before makeup, or as an extra step somewhere in between– and pick a sunscreen based on your needs. Make sure you reapply throughout the day and use the right SPF for your sun exposure. Sunscreen is the most important part of your skincare routine– don’t forget it!
