In my last post, I talked about the Island of Nantucket... but did I mention how humid and sticky the air can be?! Especially after it's thunder-stormed. Below are a few products that I absolutely recommend if you're traveling anywhere and your skin needs that extra boost!
OSEA.. what can I say? You guys really rescued my skin during this trip. Due to humidity, my skin was very, very VERYYYY oily. Because of this, I started to break out. This is where their "Ocean Cleansing Mudd" came in to play. Made with tea tree, peppermint, and rosemary left my skin with a cooling sensation and feeling squeaky clean! PLUS, it smells effing amazing! Because its a deeply purifying cleanser, I only used it twice a week. Otherwise, it'll dry out my skin.
Since I couldn't use their cleansing mudd as a daily cleanser, I used their original "Ocean Cleanser" instead. Made with beets, lime, cypress, juniper, orange, and jasmine. This is also amazing because it effectively removes dirt, excess oil, and impurities while keeping the skin hydrated! Love love loveeee OSEA products.
Okay, moving on to makeup!
I didn't really wear much while in Nantucket because who likes to layer a bunch of makeup on while beachin'? Yeah, not me. I just went with an au-naturale, sun-kissed look using only five products! Remember... LESS IS MORE.
First, I applied RMS Beauty's "Un" Cover-Up Foundation in the shade 33. Then I apply their "Buriti Bronzer" in the hollows of my cheek, my nose, and jaw-line to define and give me that sun-kissed look. For that extra glow, I used their "Living Luminizer" on the tip of my nose, above/on top of my cheekbones, underneath my eyebrows, and on my cupids-bow. I love these products because they're so lightweight! You can build up the coverage/consistency. They're also coconut based, so they'll stay on throughout the day while keeping your skin moisturized! Now for the real game changer... you don't need to apply any of these products with a brush! They're made to be used with your FINGERS. Less to carry when traveling! Just be sure to wash your hands before touching the products to prevent future blemishes.
After doing so, I apply ILIA's "Fade Into You" light universal finishing powder. Made of aloe leaf extract, vitamins, minerals, passion fruit, and rosemary oil. These ingredients combined help keep the skin looking soft and supple. It also has inflammatory properties to soothe the skin.
Last but not least, W3LL PEOPLE "Purist #63" mineral blush. Made of kaolin clay, organic aloe, chamomile, & green tea. I use this blush to give me that pop of color and liveliness.
There you have it! My go-to products while beachin' in Nantucket.
