Summertime is going strong and I am L O V I N G it! More sunshine, cold drinks and of course more skin! So today I’m sharing with you my summer time pamper routine and how I get my skin silky smooth and glowing for this summer time. We’re talking from bath essentials to skincare, makeup and yes even hair! So let’s get on to the good stuff!

During the summer I like to wear the least amount of makeup as possible, so that means I need to take extra good care of my skin. My goal is to make it look healthy and glowing. So right before I start my bath I love to apply a face mask, my favorite at the moment is this Freeman’s Charcoal Facemask. (@ Walgreens for $3.99) It is amazing! I apply all over my face and my neck and leave it on for about 10 or 15 minutes.
I honestly recommend any face mask by Freeman Beauty. They are absolutely amazing! Another two of my favorites are the Avocado & Oatmeal Clay as well as Anti Stress Dead Sea Minerals. If you haven’t tried any of them they have samples that are only $1.99 (which are the ones linked here) – trust me, you will love them! I use one of these face masks about once a week.
Okay time for my bath! Not only is it relaxing time for me but it is also a great time to add some goodies into your bath that are good for you and your skin!
In my bath goes my Mama Soak Refreshing Sitz Bath Powder, guys this smells so good! Not only is this good for everyone in general, it is perfect for all my pregnant mamas out there as it helps sooth all those sensitive areas 😉
Along with that I add some Shea Moisture Sea Kelp & Pearl Protein Bubble Bath & Body Wash. It smells so refreshing and clean, its totally hydrating and the perfect combination with my bath powder. I also love to add some pretty flowers and good smelling candles around, because it totally sets the mood.
What else sets the mood for me? A good song. Something cute, romantic, slow and yeah, you get the point. Two of my current faves are Eres Tu by Carla Morrison and Falling in Love in A Coffee Shop by Landon Pigg.
To remove my face mask while I’m in the bath I just wet a cloth and gently wipe it off.
Once my bath is over, in the shower I like to exfoliate my entire body with Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex hand and body scrub. (Can you see the pattern here? I love Shea Moisture products!) This scrub is gentle and hydrating at the same time. It is one of my favorites! I use this one maybe once or twice a week.
For my face I wash it with, of course, Shea Moisture African Black Soap Bar. This soap is my absolute favorite and I use it every single day! It leaves your face feeling super clean!
Once I am out of the shower I apply this Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex Bath & Body Oil to my entire body – except my face. Before I apply this to face I use my Puristry Restorative Facial Oil, which helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once I apply this facial oil I then go back and apply the Shea Moisture Superfruit body oil to my face.
I don’t use any other moisturizer on my face, just the Shea Moisture Superfruit oil. It is amazing! It doesn’t leave my skin looking super oily, just hydrated and honestly healthy. Once that is settled into my skin, I then like to go in with some of my favorite makeup products.
For my hair I sometimes let it air dry or blow dry it, style it with some beachy lose curls and add my Bumble and Bumble Sea Salt Spray to add some texture and body to those waves. I then add some kind of dangling earrings to finish my look. Dangling earrings are my obsession at the moment, and if you’re following me on my Instagram and stories then you probably see some of these on the daily – not even sorry.
And there you beauties have it! That is how I keep my skin looking soft, smooth and glowing for the summer! I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any requests be sure to leave me a comment!
Love you all, until next time!
