We came back from the beach on Wednesday with lots of fun memories and a good tan! Jesse and I took our annual trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina with family and friends last week. It’s always a great time and a highlight of this year was that our beach house was oceanfront! So even the two days of rain at the beginning of the week weren’t so bad because you could still enjoy the sand and the waves, even if you had to be inside. But besides those two days, the rest of the week was beautiful and sunny!
The beach is no question my happy place (hence the name of my blog). You give me some sun, sand, and the sea and I’m a happy girl! While at the beach, or out in the sun in general, it is so important to be mindful of how much sun, in fact, you are getting. Each year I think I become more aware and intentional of protecting my skin. So today I want to share with you three products that are perfect for your summer beach trip (or any other outdoor activity), and also a few ways you can promote healthier skin! The following simple and practical skincare routine will aid in protecting, cleansing, and hydrating your skin.
1. Before heading to the beach and as you’re applying sunscreen to your body, remember to pay special attention in protecting your face as well! I’m always hesitant to use regular sunscreen on my face, so the Neutrogena® 1.7OZ Healthy Defense Moisturizer with SPF50 is the perfect choice. I love how this daily moisturizer (which can be worn alone or under makeup) has such a high SPF! Make sure to apply this HD Moisturizer 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every two hours.
2. After a day in the sun, I can’t wait to clean off my face! No matter what products I use, I always start by using a makeup remover wipe. This is my first step in cleansing. The Neutrogena 25CT Makeup Remover Towelette Refills are the perfect everyday item to carry with you! These gentle wipes remove any traces of makeup, dirt, and oil. I will usually follow up with another cleansing product to make my skin feel extra fresh and clean!
3. Hydrating your skin after a day in the sun is crucial and is our final step. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturizer Gel has honestly been on my “products I’m dying to try” list for awhile now! I have heard so much about it so I couldn’t wait to give it a go! This gel formula absorbs into the skin quickly, boosting your skin’s hydration level. Plus it feels like a dream on the skin! When I apply it at night, my skin still feels sooo smooth in the morning!
Neutrogena is a brand I’ve turned to for years and can trust, not to mention it is the #1 dermatologist recommended facial skin care brand. I also love how accessible the brand is and can be found at my frequently visited and favorite spot, Target.
Y’all know how I am about coupons, codes, apps, or whatever I can get my hands on to save a little extra cash. So I thought I would let you know that right now at Target (in store and online) when you buy three select Neutrogena products, you will receive a $5 Target GiftCard! Offer is valid 5/21 – 6/10 and 6/25 – 7/1. This is the perfect opportunity to try out Neutrogena’s skin care line! Target has made it easy for us all too; they have an endcap display with all the Neutrogena goodies waiting for us!
The next time you make a Target run, definitely hit up the makeup/skincare section to check out these products! And jot down these items on your vacay packing list too! They are easy and no-fuss products to help keep your skin healthy all summer long. What fun things do y’all have planned for the summer? I’d love to hear them! Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy June! xo.
