Neutrogena Talks Summer Beauty Trends and Sun Safety

Celebrity Make-Up Artist Elizabeth Ulloa at Neutrogena "Beautiful Inside & Out Retreat "

Between the humidity and the extreme heat, I have no idea how I've been surviving summertime in Miami. It's true, we only have two seasons down here (Summer and Summer Lite), but it seems like this year we got one more: Summer Extra Large! 

So it was great to attend Neutrogena's Beautiful Inside & Out Retreat at the Viceroy Hotel in Downtown Miami to learn about sun safety from dermatologist Dr. Leyda Bowes and make-up tips from celebrity make-up artist Elizabeth Ulloa. Since I want all of you to benefit from everything I learned, I took notes to share with you fellow Fab Girls.

From Dr. Bowes, 4 Simple Steps to Better Skin:
1. Everyday Cleansing For Clear Skin- This should include a facial cleanser, a facial scrub, and a mask. Facial wipes and towelettes are "good for on-the-go" but should not be all you're using on your face. I love Neutrogena's Deep Clean Line, as well as their delicious smelling Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes. 

2. Anti-Aging Morning & Nighttime Moisturizing- After your morning skincare regimen, it's imperative you apply a moisturizer. Stick to ones that include Retinol SA which provide anti-aging and anti-discoloration benefits. I have been using Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair for Wrinkles & Fine Lines which also packs SPF 30 in one product.

3. Prevent Sun Damage with Daily Protection- This is pretty much the most important step of the entire process. Everyone should be using a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher everyday. Apply 15-30 minutes before going outside, re-applying every two hours. If you plan to go swimming or if you sweat a lot, please reapply more often. As mentioned in #2, I like to use one product that does multiple things but you can use Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Sunscreen if you prefer individual products.

4. Cosmetics with Skincare Benefits- I simply adore products who serve more than one purpose. Ain't nobody got time to spend in the bathroom when you have children, chores, or meetings waiting for you. Neutrogena does a great job of creating multi-functional cosmetics that have SPF built-in as well as antioxidants and nourishing ingredients. Check out their Healthy Skin Line which includes foundation, compacts, pressed powder, blush, bronzers, and more.
