Summer Skincare Tips

I love summer!! I love the heat, the long beach days, and the sun on my skin. 

In order for me to fully enjoy the summer sun I have to take really good care of my skin. 

My first rule …. Always wear sunscreen! I always wear a minimum of 30 spf on my skin, and if I know I am going to be hanging at the beach I increase it to 50 or 70 spf. I love the sun, but I love my skin more. I try to prevent any skin damage caused by the sun year round, especially living in south Florida, but really bump it up during the summer. 

My next summer skincare rule … always keep your skin hydrated!! This might be my favorite skin care tip. A lot of damage, wrinkles, and signs of aging can be prevented with proper hydration. Just because the air is more humid during the summer doesn’t mean you can skip on hydration … in fact it means its easier for your skin to become dehydrated. Increase your water intake during these hot summer months, if you typically drink 64 oz of water I would recommend increasing that to a minimum of 80 oz of water when you are in the heat. If you are going to be active, playing sports, or spending the day at the beach you may need to increase your water intake even further to prevent dehydration. My favorite glass water bottle that I use on the daily is the Life Factory 16 oz bottle. This water bottle holds 16 oz, and makes it easy to measure how much water I’m drinking. 

 
 

I’m obsessed with my morning skincare routine! One aspect of this routine that has made a huge difference in my skin - and helped to keep it hydrated year round - rose water spray! This is the final step of my morning skincare routine every morning. I actually carry the bottle with me throughout the day and will spray it and rehydrate my skin a few times a day. I keep a bottle at my studio, to rehydrate and brighten my skin post workout or yoga flow. I keep a bottle in my travel bag and always spray my face, neck, and décolletage on a flight. 

The rose water spray that I love is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray

Summer Juice/Cocktail Recipe

There is nothing like sitting on the deck barefoot, the sun beating down on your skin with a fresh pressed juice in hand. Watermelon is my favorite fruit of the summer! I think it goes back to when I was a child, and looking forward to slices of cool watermelon after a long day on the water. To this day I love watermelon slices in the summer. 

As an adult, and now a detox queen, I understand the incredible benefits of watermelon. 

  • Watermelon is 92% water, so it keeps you hydrated during those hot summer days

  • This juicy fruit is high in nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamins B1, B5 and B6, Carotenoids, and Lycopene

  • Improves heart health, and may lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke

  • Decreases inflammation in the body

  • Relieves muscle soreness, due to the amino acid Citrulline

I love using the extra watermelon after a bbq or gathering to create some fresh pressed juice!

My current favorite watermelon juice recipe is ….

Watermelon Mint Juice

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of watermelon

  • 1/4 cup of fresh mint

  • 1 inch of fresh ginger (optional)

Directions:

  1. Wash all ingredients

  2. Run all ingredients through the juicer, and serve over ice!

  3. Looking for a healthy cocktail recipe for those long summer night?? Add 1.5 oz of Tito’s Vodka or 1.5 oz of Camarena Tequila to your juice!

  4. Enjoy responsibly!
