With the dog days of summer in full swing, I thought it would be fun to switch things up a bit & share my simple summer beauty routine. Summer season is the epitome of casual & relaxed so my summer routine mirrors that, but there are a few routines that I regularly rely on during the summer months. Read on to find out what they are...

1. Self Tanner. I always want a nice, glowing tan during the summer but for the past few summers, I have been very aware of the damage that UV rays can do to your skin. A healthy glow with self tanner is the way I go nowadays. It looks just as good and application only takes a few moments. I tend to apply my tanner before I go to bed & when I wake up, I look like I just spent hours at the beach! 

2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. In the last month or so, I have heard from numerous professionals that I need to up my water intake! (something I already knew...but is never fun to hear) My doctor mentioned it to me during my last visit & my masseuse on our cruise told me I needed more water as well! One way to get my water intake up, up, up is by drinking water that tastes good! Vitaminwater has become my new go to daily drink. I always have a bottle in my bag or next to my bed lately to remind me to drink. I love that these drinks hydrate me and also provide me with the vitamins & nutrients I need for my on-the-go lifestyle. My favorite vitaminwater zero flavor is Squeezed which is a lemonade flavor! Yum!

3. Minimal Beauty Products. I have never been the type of person to wear a ton of make up but in the summer, I especially pare it down. My favorite summer beauty products include: tinted moisturizer, a little blush/bronzer for contouring & a ton of mascara. I finish off my look with a bright lip color that screams summer time!

Target is one of my favorite places to shop since it's a one stop shop for everything on my shopping list, including summer beauty products & vitaminwater (plus a million other things I don't need but end up buying anyways) - anyone else get sucked down the Target rabbit hole every time?? ;).
