The Ultimate Guide to Summer Skincare

Updated: May 17, 2023



We all want happy, healthy, glowing summer skin, and I would love to fill you in all the tips, tricks and insider info on how to get this naturally!


Healthy skin can be as simple as a great beauty serum and a couple high quality supplements or more complex with needing a little more targeted support. But here’s the great news:


Healthy, glowing, happy skin is completely within your reach, friend.


I want to share some of my daily use products for loving your skin. These are the things I use each day to help get and keep healthy, glowing skin, and a lot of these are incredibly simple switches or additions you can make to your current routine!


Inner Beauty Collagen


Whether you're wanting to up your hair & skin game, feeling that postpartum hair and skin slump or needing a little extra boost after being under the weather, I've got you covered. Meet your new beauty BFF- Inner Beauty Collagen!


Collagen is THE protein of the body. It's the most abundant protein and is the crucial support piece for your hair, skin, nails, joints, muscles and gut lining.


Unfortunately, collagen levels decrease as we get older (starting as early as age 25!), but as it decreases, we actually need it the most. As we age our natural collagen also becomes more fragmented and fragile, so it doesn't hold up as well as it used to. Because of this, adding a high quality collagen supplement to your health routine is a wonderful way to help your body replenish collagen levels and promote its own collagen production!


Inner Beauty Collagen supports your natural radiance from the inside out. Made with a highly soluble form of bioavailable type I marine collagen, peach ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, this supplement supports vibrant, lit- from-within skin and healthy-looking hair and nails with ingredients that are naturally derived and sustainably sourced, so you can feel good about your skin and your purchase.


Unlike other collagen powder supplements derived from bovine sources, Young Living's Inner Beauty Collagen features bioavailable type I marine collagen sourced exclusively from sustainable marine sources. Marine collagen is specifically helpful for healthy skin and hair!


Some will tell you that powdered collagen is not as bioavailable as liquid collagen. But marine collagen bioavailability is NOT affected or changed if it is in powder form or liquid form before consuming it!


When liquid shots are manufactured, the collagen in these products begins as a powder anyway. One of the main benefits of the powdered formula of Inner Beauty Collagen is that it's flavorless, so you can enjoy it with virtually any beverage.


To use, mix 1 scoop of Inner Beauty Collagen with 4–8 ounces of water, NingXia Red or your favorite hot or cold beverage daily. Check out some of my favorite summer smoothie recipes with Inner Beauty Collagen here!



Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil

Cel-Lite Magic is one of my favorite products! I love applying this magical massage oil to areas like the legs, abdomen, arms and other areas where I want smooth, toned skin!


Cel-Lite Magic massage oil features Grapefruit, Cypress, Juniper, Cedarwood, and Clary Sage essential oil diluted in our V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex—a rich, moisturizing combination of sesame, sweet almond, wheat germ, sunflower, and olive oils—for a fresh, energizing massage. It works with your skin to improve the natural skin barrier and improve the appearance of skin tone and texture.


  • Clary Sage: helps support cellular health and hormone balance

  • Grapefruit: provides cleansing properties for the skin and lymphatic system.

  • Cypress: supports healthy circulation and blood vessel tone, helps reduce water retention.

  • Juniper: helps detox and cleanse the body, beautifies and tonifies the skin when applied topically

  • Cedarwood: promotes the appearance of healthy skin and hair.

  • Coconut oil, almond oil, grape seed oil, olive oil: carrier oils high in antioxidants that promote healthy looking skin


One of my favorite ways to use Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil is after dry brushing and a shower to help replenish skin! I learned about this during the Lymph Challenge I did last year-read more about that here! I love to add a bottle of Cypress essential oil directly to the bottle of Cel-Lite Magic for increasing circulation and lymph flow even more (hello summer skin and bikini season!).


Other ways to use this favorite massage oil:

  • Use it as part of a pampering massage to soothe fatigued muscles, everyday aches, and general discomfort

  • Use to tame flyaways around your face, to give wet hair a little TLC (just a tiny amount on the ends/dry areas) or as a deeply conditioning hair mask.

  • Use as a shave oil for soft, silky legs.



Young Living Skincare Lines


One of the reasons I love Young Living so much is because they have so many wonderful essential oil infused products - including skincare! No matter your skin needs, there is a line that is perfect for you.


ART Skincare

The ART Skin Care system includes everything you need for refreshed, renewed, and radiant skin, naturally. This system is specifically designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, maintain moisture balance, prevent drying, and protect from environmental toxins. The ART Skin Care System includes: ART Gentle Cleanser, ART Refreshing Toner, and ART Light Moisturizer.


Balance Collection

Balance Collection is a great choice for teens, for those with more oil-prone skin, or those wanting to address clogged pores and breakouts. This collection also helps with redness and helps maintain a healthy skin microbiome! The BALANCE Collection includes BALANCE Cleanser, BALANCE Dual-Phase Toner, and BALANCE Mattifying Lotion.


BLOOM Skincare

BLOOM Skincare is our go-to for brightening! This collection is good for all ages and skin types and helps with hydration, instant glow and radiance, improved texture, dark-spot reduction, smoothing, and more. This collection includes: BLOOM Brightening Cleanser, BLOOM Brightening Essence, BLOOM Brightening Lotion, and BLOOM Brightening Cream.


Other Favorites:


Wolfberry Eye Cream

This water-based moisturizer is our go to for soothing tired eyes and reducing fine lines around the delicate skin of the eye area. Containing only natural ingredients and the anti-aging and skin-conditioning properties of wolfberry seed oil, Wolfberry Eye cream is simply divine!


Charcoal Mask

This luxurious mask is made with Tahitian volcanic black sand, activated charcoal, salicylic acid, a blend of fruit-derived alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), and Peppermint premium essential oil and is a favorite of so many! The YL Charcoal Mask helps you get softer, glowing skin, while also ridding your skin of impurities, purifying pores, reducing the appearance of blemishes, and restoring the appearance of an even skin tone.


Mint Satin Facial Scrub

Mint Satin Facial Scrub polishes and gently lifts and removes dry, dead skin cells to reveal bright and even-looking skin. Plus, it has pure Peppermint essential oil for a minty scent and tingly fresh feel that is a wonderful start to the day!

Favorite Skincare Oils

Did you know that a lot of high end beauty products use essential oils in them because oils are such an incredible tool for our skin?! Yep, they do. But sadly those products have less than ideal ingredients and the oils used aren’t the best quality.


Lucky for us we have the real thing - pure and unadulterated!


There are a lot of great oils you can use for skincare, and there are specific ones for specific needs.


Lemon is great for cutting the grease on oily skin.


Tea Tree is wonderful for acne and getting rid of problem areas.


Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood is incredibly moisturizing for dry skin.


But overall, for any skin type, Frankincense is our skin care BFF!

Ohhh Frankincense. This healing oil is a staple in our homes for so many things, but especially for the skin. Frank is great for healing, smoothing and supporting the skin and keeping it looking young and fresh.


I love to apply Frank to the face after washing and before moisturizing. Simply apply with carrier oil like jojoba oil all over the face either with a roller ball or with your hands and then lather on a moisturizer for the most amazing blend!

When you’re ready to really add some daily luxe to your routine, reach for the rose-infused CBD Beauty Boost. Pure CBD + rose essential oil = luxe!


CBD Beauty Boost contains a combination of pure, potent 0.0% THC CBD, tamanu oil, grapeseed oil, and rose essential oil for a truly luxurious experience! In fact, it's so luxurious that each dropper of CBD Beauty Boost contains the essential oils from one full Damask rose.


This luxurious blend will moisturize your skin, help maintain even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a youthful glow.


You can use this dreamy serum as-is, right out of the bottle with amazing results. Simply add 1-2 droppers to your hand and apply evenly to your face, neck, chest, or anywhere you could use a moisturizing boost!


Favorite Skincare Supplements

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, healthy, happy, glowing skin starts from the inside out! Yes we want to be using all natural, high quality and effective products on our skin, but it is also incredibly important what we put in our bodies!


Supplements can go so far when it comes to skincare. They give our bodies the building blocks for creating collagen, keratin and moisture that our skin so desperately needs! And Young Living has a couple powerhouse skincare supplements that we never find ourselves without.


SulfurZyme

Sulfurzyme is a unique combination of MSM (the protein-building compound found in breast milk, fresh fruits and vegetables) and the Ningxia wolfberry that helps you have healthy hair, skin, nails and joints. MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is an incredible support tool for our bodies that boosts both collagen and keratin production!


Collagen and keratin are what gives hair strength, durability and that “healthy” look. Hair, skin, and nail cells all contain large amounts of keratin, which contains sulfur and needs it to stay strong. Boosting collagen and keratin production helps you fight back against damage from the inside out.


Mix your SulfurZyme into 2-4oz of NingXia Red and take twice daily for best results! Some people choose to double up on the dosing for more acute needs. (There’s also a capsule version if you prefer!)


NingXia Red

Ningxia Red is a powerful antioxidant supplement drink made from wolfberry puree, blueberry, plum, cherry, aronia, and pomegranate juices and essential oils. It is the highest known protection against free radical damage and is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, it has 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E.


Our bodies need all of these things to promote soft, shiny hair, healthy skin and nails! Plus, it’s a great way to get in all the other supplements together - mix them into your daily Red!


Mineral Essence

Water is great and we all need to be drinking it, but when we constantly drink water stripped of minerals or electrolytes, we are actually depleting our bodies of things that they really need.


Luckily, this is an incredibly easy fix! Grab a bottle of Mineral Essence and add it to your water to give your skin and your body the ionic minerals it needs - iron, zinc, silicon, fluorine, boron, lithium, sodium, sulfur, magnesium, chloride, selenium, thallium, calcium, and potassium.


To use Mineral Essence, add 5 half-droppers to 4-8 oz of cranberry juice or NingXia Red morning and evening.


Daily Glow Beauty Spritzer

2-4 oz NingXia Red

1 tsp SulfurZyme

5 half droppers Mineral Essence

1 scoop Inner Beauty Collagen

Ice and coconut water as desired
