Summertime fun is only fun when your skin is in good shape! Dry, cracked, and sunburned skin can be pretty annoying, especially when all you want to do is focus on enjoying summer.
Don't worry! vklSKIN has a few things ready to help your skin stay hydrated and cool this summer. ;)
1. NATURE REPUBLIC's Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
I use this amazing gel for my body, face, and hair. Aloe vera is super moisturizing and healing, especially for sunburns and skin that has had contact with heat. I really like this product because it is made out of organic aloe vera from California! The gel has a very smooth texture that sinks into your skin very easily (afterall, aloe vera is known to penetrate the layers of your skin quickly and can reach the deepest layer of your skin to deliver many minerals, vitamins, and amino acids). I also really like the scent of the gel and seriously need it made into a candle. If you want something this summer that doesn't irritate your skin, moisturizes, soothes, and is multi-purpose, get this aloe vera gel because it has impressed so many and is my go-to moisturizer this season. Year-after-year, NATURE REPUBLIC brings back this product because people love it. You can purchase this product in Nature Republic stores or online here.

2. TONYMOLY's Bamboo Cool Water Soothing Gel
Soon after I purchased the NATURE REPUBLIC Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, I found this popular product that has very attractive packaging. While the NATURE REPUBLIC Aloe Vera Soothing Gel is a quality product, TONYMOLY's Bamboo Cool Water Soothing Gel is definitely easier to carry around, especially for summer vacations. The texture of the gel is more watery than the NATURE REPUBLIC Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, and it does a really great job of moisturizing my skin. Did you know that bamboo extract contains silica, which plays a role in building collagen and improving elasticity? I like that this product contains 99% Damyang bamboo water (it's pretty much filled with 100% pure bamboo water)! Damyang is a county in Jeollanam-do, South Korea that is home to a Bamboo Theme Park and the Damyang Bamboo Festival. It is a popular place for tourists in South Korea, and TONYMOLY has brought us a piece of that county in this quality product. Sold out 10 days after it launched in Korea, TONYMOLY's Bamboo Cool Water Soothing Gel is definitely a highlighting product of this summer. You can purchase this product online here and here.
3. INNISFREE's Green Tea Mineral Mist
With one spritz, I knew that this mist was the one for me this summer. INNISFREE creates really natural and effective products, and I was certainly pleased when this mist sprayed evenly all over my face, provided a cooling sensation, and absorbed into my skin quickly. I am a big fan of INNISFREE's Green Tea line because I love the clean scent. I highly recommend this mist to anyone who is just starting out with the mist habit (Koreans use mists throughout the day as a pick-me-up for their skin). In the summer, it is important to wear SPF, but antioxidants shouldn't be ignored! Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals, which are caused by the sun, from damaging your skin. The product is alcohol-free with INNISFREE's 6-free system (no ethanol, no parabens, no benzophenone, no artificial pigments, no mineral oil, no animal-based materials) and uses 100% organic Jeju green tea water. The facial mist moisturizes your skin. You will feel the difference. You can purchase this product online here.
Here is INNISFREE's CF on their Green Tea Seed Serum, which is another product in the same line as the Green Tea Mist:
I've finished the reviews for today's post (did you like it?), but I'm not done yet! I'd like to share a tip on how you can make your face masks and skincare products even more soothing for your irritated summer skin.
Keep your face masks and skincare products in the refrigerator to keep them cool for when you are ready to use them. It has been said that the heat in the summer (not even direct sunlight) can cause premature aging. Who knows if that is true, but when your skin doesn't feel right to you, make sure to answer back by cooling it down with a chilled face mask!
