You know that feeling when you take a cold shower after being out in the sun all day? That’s what this hydrating gel from Tarte feels like. The gel is vegan and lightweight and not greasy or sticky at all.

I like to dip my finger in the jar and put little spots all around my face until it feels like I have enough to spread around. It’s super refreshing and helps keep the moisture in my face after I’ve been drying out my skin in the sun and then in the shower. Bonus: it smells great too. This product is a summertime must-have!

Other tips for taking care of your skin in the summer:

  • Drink your water! The last thing you want is to be dehydrated while you’re sweating consistently in the dry, humid air. Water is good and good for you (for both your insides and your outsides).
  • Take care of your eyes. The skin under and around your eyes are the thinnest. With that being said, if you’re spending time out in the sun, wear sunglasses. Apply sunscreen under your eyes (just be careful not to get it in your eye) and put cucumber slices and/or aloe gel on the skin after you’ve been outside.
  • Take time away from wearing makeup. I know plenty of people that go to the beach with a full face of makeup. Yes, you’re a queen in your lashes and with your foundation, but it’s important to take time away from all that and let your face breathe.
  • Don’t forget about the skin on your feet. We tend to put a lot of care and focus into our skin (mostly our face) that we neglect the feet, as gross as they are. Don’t forget to put sunscreen on your feet and toes and exfoliate every once in a while just for a little TLC.
