Summer Staples

Are you ready for summer? I know that we are all excited to wear our summer attires and go to the beach or out-of-town trips. Though summer provides a lot of fun-filled activities, let us not forget to have our summer skin staples lest all the fun would eventually take its toll in our skin. Let me share with you my current summer skin staples:

Sunglasses, Gentle Mineral Sunscreen, Hydra-Moist, Luminisce SPF-45 Sunblock, and Cetaphil Daylong Lotion

Sunglasses, Gentle Mineral Sunscreen, Hydra-Moist, Luminisce SPF-45 Sunblock, and Cetaphil Daylong Lotion


Aside from protecting our eyes from glare, Sunglasses play a vital role in shielding the fragile tissue around the eye. This skin, including the eyelid itself, is very thin and vulnerable to skin cancer “ -W. Lee Ball Jr., OD, an optometrist at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

It is recommended to use sunglasses that block UV rays to protect our eyes from the harmful sun rays.

Gentle Mineral Sunscreen SPF 58

Since UVA radiation causes deeper skin damage that results in pigmentation, and premature skin aging, I use this sunscreen whenever I go on a field work. It is hypo-allergenic and water resistant for upto 40 minutes.

Luminisce Sunblock SPF 45

I use this during regular days. Aside from having SPF 45, what I love about this product is that it has a matte finish. No need to put powder after applying this product. For me it is like a sunblock and bb cream rolled into one! Unlike other sunblock that feels heavy on the face, Luminisce Sunblock feels light and not greasy. Your skin can still breath after applying this product! It is handy – I always bring it with me in my bag.


This is a light weight day and night moisturizer that boosts hydration of the skin and provides moisture retention in the skin. I love applying hydra-moist because my skin quickly absorbs it giving me a supple and fresh glow!

Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I tried a lot of lip balm / lip moisturizer in the past but this is the only lip balm that helps prevent my lips from cracking. What I like about this product is that it is 100% natural! It hydrates my lips and also revitalizes it with antioxidant-rich Pomegranate oil. The hint of color that comes with it gives my lips an even and beautifully toned appearance.

Cetaphil Daylong Lotion SPF 50+

This lotion is easily being absorbed by my skin. It is hypoallergenic, water-resistant, paraben free, and fragrance free! It has a pump dispenser that provides a consistent amount of product whenever I use it. I use it as my day body lotion. 🙂

You don’t have to sacrifice your skin’s health just to have an enjoyable summer. We can all have a fun and skin-friendly summer!
