Healthy Summer Skin

Have you ever seen those women, the women with the beautiful blemish, wrinkle free beautiful skin, that look younger than their years?
Well, that is not me. I wish I could go back in time and listen to all of the wise women who told me the importance of a sunscreen higher than SPF oil, or to not use a tanning bed, or wear a hat, my Mom is always in a hat, why didn't I listen to her?
So, now at 43, I am making my skin a priority, my health depends on it....

I have been drinking hot/warm lemon water for years now, but never first thing in the morning, drinking hot lemon water instead of coffee first thing in the morning was a challenge at first but now after learning  all of the health benefits warm lemon water first thing in the morning offers, it's a priority. One of the many benefits of hot lemon water is what it does for your skin, the vitamin C and antioxidants in the lemons is said to decrease wrinkles and blemishes, and gives your skin a healthy glow. You would be surprised with how many benefits certain foods, such as superfoods, can help in all areas of health, including your skin. I was recently checking out Aloha, which offers a ton of healthy recipes that include all kinds of superfoods.

Now look, I do live in the Hamptons and I am in the sun a lot and we entertain a lot, so what do I do to stay safe and still have that healthy summer glow?

Whether I am out running around or at the beach I keep my face protected as much as I can. The majority of the products I use can be found at Target, which for me is great because I have FORO (fear of running out). I have been using Olay products for years and lately I have been using this Olay Total Effects with Spf 30, it evens out my skin tone and protects it at the same time. If  I am at the pool or the beach I typically reach for Neutogena Age Shield it has great protection from the damaging rays and doesn't clog my pores.

To scrub all of this off and give my skin a healthy glow, I love this Olay Pro X cleansing brush, it gently unclogs my pores and gives my skin a fresh no make-up needed look

 I almost always use a bronzer, even in the summer, I always have my sunglasses on, and always have a white raccoon mask around my eyes, so I use a bronzer to fill in my ridiculous tan line and even out my skin. I do bounce from bronzer to bronzer, but I always seem to have one from Physicians Formula in my make-up bag, it gives you a natural glow and I love that the bronzer has a Spf , added protection right? 
In the evening for that gorgeous dewy warm glow I reach for Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer No 3, this stuff is amazing!!

We have our skincare covered so grab a hat like this one from Brixton, a pair of sunnies with UVA protection like these from Komono and a Superfood Vitamin C packed Sangia to give you a natural glow from the inside out, and get out there and enjoy your summer the healthy safe way a healthy Sangria
