Skin Essentials for Summer

Skincare has become ever more increasingly important to me as I advance in life. When we ignore our skin, it becomes dull, aged, dry, and acne ridden. Summer is especially important for good skincare as we are in the sun more, exposed to more environmental aggressors and are just too busy to keep it up. So here are some of my favorite summer essentials for skin to keep it radiant, fresh and looking good.
