Summer’s Glowing Glistening Skin
Summer’s Glowing Glistening Skin sounds almost poetic doesn’t it? A more truthful title might look something like this: Summer’s Slick Slimy Sweaty Skin. Sadly, I don’t think the proposed title would garner any attention.

Glistening skin is foreign to me. I sweat! And when I say “sweat” I mean buckets. So today I’m going to share my summer skincare routine.
Bold Blind Beauty believes true beauty resides within. Sometimes the way we appear on the outside may not necessarily reflect what’s on the inside. For example, when it’s hot, hazy, and humid I find it difficult to feel beautiful. Toss in a hot flash and it’s a wrap.
It’s hard to feel beautiful when you really feel like a slimy, sticky slug. The past few days have been so sticky and hot the thought of putting on makeup made me nauseous. So what do I do to combat my summer oily skin? A simple 3-step skin care regimen which includes a tinted moisturizer. When the temperature gauge hits 90’s+ any attempt at applying foundation flies quickly out the window.
Recently, I swapped out a couple of my regular skin care products with an oil reducing cleanser and a tinted moisturizer. So when it feels hot enough to fry an egg on my face I cleanse, exfoliate, then use the moisturizer with SPF. After this, I throw some eyeliner, mascara, brows, and lips then I’m good to go.
So when it’s hot as a blast furnace my skincare routine allows my outside to more accurately reflect my inside. Translation: I don’t feel like a walking/talking puddle of mush.
