Hello Summer! Finally, Summer has truly arrived to the NW. We opened up the pool season, and I am in sleeveless tops, shorts, and dresses daily. The kids schools are also almost out which solidifies the feeling of being on vacation, and summer break. Although there are still summer activities & trips, I am on a break from 6 am wake up time, and driving a couple times a day at certain hours for pick up and drop off. This mom gets so excited to have unscheduled days ahead. (At least semi unscheduled 🙂 )

Summer is also a time I adjust my beauty routines. I use & try many skincare products & regimes, however here I talked about how Cetaphil® products became regular fixtures in our family’s life over the years. Today I am partnering up with Cetaphil® again. I want to share with you a few Skincare Changes You Should Make This Summer to feel #Wonderphil. <3 IMG_6184

Cetaphil® has been my family’s one constant in our evolving skincare routines over the years. We got introduced to the brand by one of our dermatologists a very long time ago. She recommended Cetaphil®’s gentle cleansers that don’t strip the skin. Our whole family used various products of the brand after that initial introduction, including body moisturizer & facial moisturizer with SPF. My husband even uses the Men’s Daily Face Cloths.

Ready for the Skincare changes you Should Make this Summer? IMG_6214

USE AN SPF MOISTURIZER ON YOUR FACE DAILY  I choose SPF moisturizers even in the winter, however it is more crucial than ever to use SPF every single day under the summer sun. SPF not only protects our skin from the UVA & UVB sun rays that can cause damage & even threaten our health, but it also helps keep our skin beautiful by preventing sun spots and discoloration.IMG_6200

EXFOLIATE MORE FREQUENTLY  I find that exfoliation is super important in the summer, especially if you spend a lot of the time at the pool or the beach like me. I use a high SPF sunscreen because I do enjoy lying down under the sun reading and resting. I also enjoy being in the water for extended periods. I do get a sun tan as a result and exfoliation helps me get an even skin tone. It also helps deep clean the excess oils, sweat, and extra sunscreen. IMG_6226

CONTROL EXCESS OIL  Our skin gets drier in the winter but in the summer, humidity, hot weather, sweat, and sunscreen tend to make our skin oilier which can result in shine. If your skin gets oily too in summer months, using blotting papers does wonders to help control the shine. I suggest keeping a pack in your purse for touching up through out the day.

  • As a runner my skin can sometimes end up oily one day and dry another. Cetaphil has helped balance those levels and keep my skin clear. I also like using Cetaphil on my elbows in the winter months, they certainly do get dry if I don’t.

    Cetaphil products are wonderful all year but sm during the summer it’s all about spf! Being outdoors more means more sunscreen for me.

  • Hilary Frias

    I’ve added a new physical sunscreen, new (hydrating) toner, and two new eye creams. I’m still young but want to take preventative measures to protect my skin.

  • Sarah Atkinson Stoll

    I love Cetaphil products! the are really the only thing I can really use on my very sensitive skin. I love the body cream and I use the face wash in the shower.
