Our Favorite Budget-Friendly Summer Skincare Guide

Our Favorite Budget-Friendly Summer Skincare Guide


For all skin types, both your body and face can go from oily, to dry, or sensitive, and it’s all because of the weather. We’re here to remind you that your skincare regimen may need to adjust according to the heatwave we’re about to have this Summer. But don’t worry; we got you covered. We made a list of your Summer must-haves that will make sure your skin is prepared for the heat. From budget-friendly to a shopping splurge — you have options!

Stay cool this Summer — and we mean extra cool with a facial mist that’ll rejuvenate your skin. When you can’t jump in a pool, these are guaranteed to make you feel refreshed throughout the day.

Pacifica Coconut Essence Hydro Mist , Glow Recipe - Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist, Tatcha - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist 


Your skin wants to breathe this season, so do more by applying less with a tinted moisturizer. These products work for your skin by being weightless, tinted so you can skip the foundation, and come with extra protection from the sun.

Added humidity in the air will leave your skin feeling dry and even flakey. Don’t skip exfoliating your skin in order to maintain a soft and glowy complexion. From natural to chemical, there’s an exfoliant for your skin type that’ll feel gentle and soothing after this step of your skincare regimen.


Instead of having FOMO when you can’t lay out at the beach or by the pool, try a self tanner that’ll give you the sun -kissed tan you dream about this time of year. These products moisturize while faking the fact that you didn’t go to St. Tropez this Summer (your secret’s safe with us).

It’s inevitable to break a sweat, especially when you’ll be out and about under the sun. Stay dry and smelling fresh with the deodorant that responds best to your body!

Besides your nose, people often forget about another sensitive area on your face when it comes to sunburns — your lips. Dry, chapped, and sunburnt are things you want to avoid when it comes to your pucker so here are 3 lip balms that include a generous amount of SPF.

Neutrogena - Revitalizing Lip Balm (SPF 30), Coola - Tinted Mineral Liplux (SPF 30), Supergoop! - Shine On Lip Screen (SPF 50)


This is probably one of the most crucial (but forgotten) steps in your skincare regimen this Summer — after sun care. Sure, aloe vera feels soothing on burnt skin BUT burnt or not, your skin should feel protected before, during, and after a day in the sun.

Burt’s Bees - After Sun Soother, Sun Bum - Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Lotion, Korres - After Sun Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel
