There are so many great things about summer, but one thing I can completely live without is the damage it does to your skin. Everything from the sun burns to the excessive sweating makes it hard to keep your traditional skincare routine during this time of year. It is important to tweak your skincare routines in the summer to meet your needs. Here’s a list of the best beauty products to try this summer!
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Lotion – SPF 100
This sunscreen offers the highest combined UVA/UVB protection, and is proven to protect skin from over 99% sunburn damage. Plus, with an unbeatable PFA, nothing provides better UVA protection. Infused with a light, fresh scent, this elegant formulation is fast-absorbing, non-whitening, water resistant and lightweight. Neutrogena’s Dry-Touch technology provides an ultra-light, non-shiny finish and leaves skin soft and smooth.
Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea
An invigorating mist formulated with an infusion of nutrient-rich botanicals and cucumber essential water to revive dull, tired skin. Aloe vera and cucumber – both rich in essential vitamins and minerals – deliver a cooling boost of hydration as green tea provides powerful antioxidant protection. Skin is left feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Get the look of an instant all-over vitality-filled glow, plus a boost of brightening and radiant warmth, in one simple step! From the sensorial experience of the fresh orange scent to the powerful vitamin C-infused radiance-boosting and brightening formula, Confidence in Your Glow transforms your complexion with high-performance, anti-aging ingredients and talc-free, ultra-luxe pigments.
Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF30
Sun Bum Lip Balm SPF 30 protects your lips from sun and wind damage. Aloe vera soothes dry, chapped lips while cocoa butter softens, repairs and enhances skin renewal. Use over bare lips or under your favorite lip color for added skin protection.
A 5-minute dual-action detoxifying and exfoliating clay mask. Appropriate for all skin types.
Purifies and polishes skin for a delightful deep-clean treatment. Natural bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay help remove pollution and impurities, while natural silica beads gently refine texture.
This ultra facial cream helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. It is the best you are constantly sweating. With continuous moisture replenishment throughout the day, leaves skin smooth, soft and healthy-looking.
This multitasking BB water with SPF 30 is an ultra-hydrating and oil-free formula that creates a sheer, radiant finish that lasts all day. It delivers a demi-matte complexion that’s never flat, creating a natural-looking canvas, and it minimizes the look of fine lines, pores, and blemishes. This unique BB water allows you to build coverage and does not cause any drying, cracking, or caking during wear.
Looking for a quick, refreshing summer drink recipe? Here’s one of my favorite this summer: Pineapple Rum Punch! This drink is perfect for a large party or for hanging out by the pool all summer long. The inspiration behind this drink developed during my spring break trip to the Dominican Republic. I had a similar cocktail all week around and I found this delicious recipe on Pinterest. I liked this version better! Be sure to try it out and let me know what you think.
- 3 cups Ginger Ale

Hello darlings! My name is Kirsten and I’ll one of Yvonne’s lovely summer bloggers here on HeyDoYou! I’ll be here to give you an inside look at new products, events and soooo much more!
But who am I? I’m the epitome of a firecracker, I’m five feet of pure, unadulterated fun (Because we all know dynamite comes in small packages)! I majored Beauty Merchandising and Marketing at the FABULOUS Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA, sound familiar? Yes?! Project Runway premiered in the same halls I walked to class in!
I’m a sucker for anything involving color cosmetics, puppies, rose gold, or Alice in Wonderland and I’ll eat my body weight in Sour Patch Kids forever. It’d be an understatement to say I have a sweet tooth. I’m a gamer girl with a true love for RPGs and MMOs, yes, geek chic is totally a thing! My cosplays are my life and maybe I’m a little geeky and weird… but who wants to be NORMAL?!
Looking forward to a super “hot” summer with you guys!
