Hello Beauties,
Change is in the air! My family moved to Asheville, NC where the mountains greet me with my morning cup of coffee and 70-90 degrees is the forecast for May! A big change from the weather in Chicago which recently had been all four seasons in one day. This early jump start to summer allowed me to reassess my skincare regimen, wardrobe and pick up a few staple items for my summer makeup bag!

Summer can be both busy and relaxing depending on the season of life you are in with kids and workflow but one thing I know is this: we tend to let our hair down and approach life with a less is more attitude and I am ALL about supporting you! Let’s take a pause before all the plans take place and equip you with the products that will keep your skin clean and protected, your makeup fresh and long lasting, and your body bronzed so you feel confident in the skin you are in!
Dare to take time for yourself in this busy life!

4 SKINCARE TIPSTO KEEP YOUR SKIN HAPPY THIS SUMMER
 
1. Cleanser swap? Evaluate Your Oil Production
If you typically fall between normal to dry skin and you are using a cream or oil based cleanser to wash your skin (such as Quench Cleanser) now is a great time to incorporate Dream Clean Cleanser to your routine. It is a gel based, anti-bacterial wash which will help keep excess dirt and sweat from clogging pores and causing breakouts. (You can mix a pump in with your creamy cleanser or alternate one in the morning and the other at night.)

2. Extra Oil Control
If you are typically oily and already use Dream Clean, now is a great time to switch your moisturizer to the LimeLife for Men Cool Down moisturizer! It is a balm which will endure the heat and leave your skin staying matte even with increased oil production!

3. Blemish Control: Masque of Zen
Reduce inflammation, blackheads, and excess oil with Masque of Zen. This clay masque has all natural tea tree oil, white carrot oil, and cinnamon bark to address skin imbalances. Can be used daily for excessive breakouts, weekly for normal to combination skin, and as needed for spot treating the overnight blemishes.

4. UVA / UVB Protection
The Perfect Sunscreen is made for the face with an SPF 30! Our sunscreen is DIFFERENT. It is a physical block that is applied so easily and translucent with a built in primer that protects from all the aging and cancer causing rays

Many have asked: do I need to go darker with my foundation shade going into summer? Here are some pro tips depending on your personal preference.

Perfect Duo Foundation Palette: I love this option for those who tend to fluctuate between shades or easily get color in the summer. Always have the shade that disappears into your skin for the perfect match and then one shade darker to mix in as you get color or completely transition into in the summer months!

Perfect Bronzer: Add a matte bronzer after foundation to create depth in the skin and get a natural sun-kissed look!

Perfect Glow: Ditch the Foundation altogether and replace with a Moisturizing Bronzing Lotion or boost by adding a dab to your foundation!
