Summer Skincare: Get Ready for the Heat

“Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.”

– Erno Lazlo

You guys summer is almost here and I could not be more excited! The weather is finally (fairly) warm and I’m ready to put all my sweaters and winter coats away for a long time.

Now that the weather is heating up, it’s SO important to make sure your skin is ready to handle the heat. No matter what skin type you are, make sure you find the right products that will have glowing all summer long. Here are some of my favorite summer skincare products that I’ll be using this year!

(All these products are linked on my Like to Know It page. Give me a follow at rosesnrouge to shop all my clothes and makeup, and as always, give me a holler if you have any questions about LTKI)


Lancome Rose Sugar Scrub

Time to exfoliate that skin! This face scrub from Lancome is my favorite ever because it smells like a bouquet of roses AND it’s not too harsh on my skin. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll love this scrub. Plus my skin always feels squeaky clean after I use this…it really does the job well!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray w/ Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender

By far one of the best toners out there! I use this one year round but I especially love the lavender scent for summer. It’s so refreshing, does a great job of brightening my skin and if you have any redness, this toner will be your new BFF. I also love the rose toner but I usually go for this one. Definitely a must have summer skincare product!

Bath & Body Works Pretty as a Peach Body Lotion

I love BBW! I’ve been addicted to all their products since the vintage scents were a thing (anyone remember Art Stuff? I was obsessed as a kid). This peach lotion is one of my favorite scents for summer. It’s a very fruity scent that I’ve been wearing nonstop. And of course, it keeps my skin extra hydrated in the heat!

St Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Face Mask

Ok I’ve been looking for ways to tan my face for YEARS. My face always ends up being ghostly while the rest of my body gets hella tan (literally my life every damn summer). This mask is a great addition to your summer skincare routine because it helps tan your face to however dark you want (leave on for 5 minutes for a light tan, 15 minutes for a darker tan). So amazing!

What products do you have lined up for your summer skincare routine?

The Heat Is On : 2019 Summer Style Preview

“Summertime is always the best of what might be”

– Charles Bowden

It’s still just hitting me that May is here and summer is on its way! Don’t get me wrong – summer is my absolute favorite season but it feels like 2019 is flying by hella fast.

But hey I’m BEYOND excited for summer! I’m moving to a new apartment, giving me a great chance to redecorate (TJ Maxx and Target, where you at), and I’m planning to get outside as much as possible this summer. With my thoughts on summer, Ii can’t help but think of all the cute outfits I can put together. Summer style is my favorite, so here’s a preview of some of the outfits I’ll be rocking in the next few months!

Summer Happy Hour


So summer happy hours are my favorite thing ever! What’s better than sitting outside on a warm night in July with a drink in your hand? Roll up in a stylish jumpsuit like this one and some low block heels (you know, so you’re not tripping all over yourself). Add some simple jewelry and cute neutral crossbody and you’ll be all set for a fun evening out!

Vacay Ready


Summer vacations are THE best! Whether you’re headed somewhere tropical or just off to visit some family, show up in a super summery look like this one. I love this palm print pants because they’re super light for summer days and they look so cute paired with a crop top and flatform sandals. All eyes will be on you when you get to the airport, girl! Talk about killer summer style.

Lunch Date


Grabbing lunch with the girls or your SO? This super light and chic white striped dress will be the perfect addition to your summer style! I wore it all the time last summer and I plan to wear it a lot this summer too because it’s just too cute. Get into some print mixing with these snakeskin sandals (or not…you do you, girl). I like everything extra so I added this statement necklace and bracelets. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a black crossbody, right?

Summer Fun Day


Whether you’re headed to the zoo, amusement park or just running errands, this summer style will keep you comfy and cute! In case you didn’t know, I’m OBSESSED with off the shoulder tops so I had to include one in this post. Pair this striped one with some black shorts and silver accessories to keep it simple yet super chic. I’ve bee really loving the platform sneaks trend so why not add them to this adorable look for some extra comfort and style?

Are you all about that summer style too? Let me know which is your favorite look!
