Secrets To Beautiful Summer Skin

So often when we think of skin care, we jump to the skin on our faces, but that is just a tiny piece of the skin care puzzle. Our skin covers our entire body and plays an integral part of our overall health, and as such, we need to take extra care of it during the summer months. Thankfully, CVS has us covered, and all I have to do to stock up products to take care of my skin this summer is to head into my local CVS. They have everything I need!

Here are my secrets to beautiful summer skin.

coconut oil for healthy skin tips

Coconut Oil Is King.

Yes, I'm totally going there. Not only do I love to add CVS Cold Pressed Coconut Oil to pretty much everything I eat, but I also love to us it to keep my skin soft and moisturized. I don't apply it right before I head out into the sun, but instead I use it throughout the day as a natural lotion. I also apply it at night to my face after I've been out in the sun, and I wake up with glowing skin!

tips to take care of your skin

Did you spend a little too much time in the sun, or miss a spot when you applied your sun protection? Don't worry, it happens to the best of us and there is help available. Cortisone ointment and CVS Regular Strength Pain Relief both help take the sting away, and keep you from itching and harming delicate skin.

staying hydrated

Last but not least, is to stay hydrated no matter where you are enjoying your summers days. From the beach, to the pool, and everywhere in between, you have to have a hydration plan. We love to bring ice water with us when we leave the house, but when we forget, or just want a better for you treat we head into CVS for some flavored sparkling water. It is so refreshing and fun to drink.

After we are back home, we also remember to use CVS Aftersun Aloe Vera Lotion. You don't have to have had direct contact with the sun to benefit from it's use. Wind and even air conditioning can damage skin and the healing benefits of aloe vera are massive. It also helps your skin from getting that dried out, tight feeling that can often happen during the warmer months….especially if you live or visit a drier climate.

  1. I like the after sun aloe vera. Sunburns are nightmare for me so I always have some aloe products at hand.

  2. I use lotion for my body and moisturizer on my face but not only in the summertime, but every day of the year. I would like to try that aftersun aloe vera. Sounds great!

  3. Coconut oil is my secret weapon! I use it for my hair alot but definitely can be used as a moisturizer for skin too…you can even use coconut oil as a base and make your own bug repellent or sunscreen out of it!

  4. I approve of this list and I see several items I must have as well. I keep Aloe Vera on hand for sure. I have coconut oil but don’t use it as much. Not sure why because it is good for everything.

  5. These all look like great products. I need to find my healthy for my skin. I have tried lots of different things but haven’t hit that perfect mix.

  6. I love CVS pharmacy. They have a great selection of everything including beauty, health and household products. I will be taking your advice and heading there to put together a healthy skin regimen.

  7. Taking care of your skin is so important during the summer and all the time. These products all look great to do just that.
