glowy summer skin care routine

Everything I’m Using for Glowy, Hydrated Skin This Summer

Don’t let your complexion take a beating.

As of today, it is *officially* summer, which means I am one very happy Leo. There’s nothing I enjoy more than spending lazy afternoons by the pool or at the beach, soaking in the sunshine and splashing around in the water. Unfortunately, that means my skin takes a beating from salt, chlorine, and of course, the focus of my main love/hate relationship, the sun. Dark spots, uneven texture, dehydration, clogged pores—take your pick of skin ailments, because they’ll all emerge in the months ahead. But like any other season that requires you to give your skin some extra attention (looking at you, winter), there’s a whole bevy of products that cater to your complexion’s warm-weather needs. Take a cue from my skin-care playbook with these 12 products, and enjoy glowing, hydrated skin until fall.

Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops, $36

As much as I love the sun and having a tan, I care more about my skin health. Cancer is not worth a momentary bronze, my friends. But I also want to keep my makeup routine super minimal this time of year, so instead of piling on bronzer, I add a drop of this to my moisturizer. A little goes a long way, and it gives me a sheer wash of color that has fooled many a coworker into thinking I spent a day at the beach.
