3 skincare products to ditch when the weather heats up

Summer skincare tips


If you're anything like me, you're in the midst of preparing to (finally!) see summer in. Here's a quick tip: While you're trading wardrobes, don't forget to make the switch with your skin care too.

Instead of a rich, heavy body lotion, try a dry oil.

Oil not only hydrates your skin just as well, it'll take your skin one step further and make it glow and glisten. (So great for sunny season, right?) Moisturize from neck to toe with something that's not greasy, like Organix Hydrating Moroccan Argan Dry Body Oil, $6.39, drugstore.com. It absorbs into skin quickly, and it smells incredible.

Instead of a thick face cream, try a moisturizing serum.
Higher temperatures and extreme humidity usually yield excessively sweaty skin, so sate your face with something a little lighter, like Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum, $30, mariobadescu.com. This oil-free gem is one of my absolute favorites; two tiny drops is actually enough to moisturize your entire face.

(See also: Best facial cleansers for every skin type )

Instead of a creamy cleanser, try a gel face wash.
Milky cleansers are usually formulated with humectants that help bind water and moisture into the skin. That's perfect for the colder months, but not so much when it's sweltering out. Lather up with a lightweight foam or a gel, like Clinique Wash-Away Gel Cleanser, $19.50, clinique.com. It's gentle and non-drying but thorough—it doesn't leave a stitch of dirt, oil, or makeup behind.

    • 'Morbidly obese' woman drops 126 pounds and becomes fitness model

      A woman from Aarhus, Denmark, who was once classified as “morbidly obese” after tipping the scales at 268 pounds, now works as a physical trainer and sportswear model after dropping more than half of the weight in a period of four years. Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.

    • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

      While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

    • You've Been Cooking Bacon Wrong Your Whole Life

      Bacon is amazing. Bacon is versatile. Bacon can be cooked in many ways. The traditional method is to break out the skillet and tend to it over a hot stove. Other people like to broil it in the oven. And while you can microwave and deep-fry it, none of these methods are particularly quick and painless. Thanks to a new grilling gadget, you can chomp your way through a pound of crunchy bacon in just a few minutes. It's called the Nostalgia Bacon Express Crispy Bacon Grill and it's going to change your breakfast game—and maybe even your life. This baby is equipped to cook six strips of bacon—one both sides at once!—in minutes. But the coolest part is that the bacon hangs over "doors" of the grill,

    • Did Bella Thorne Just Break The Law By Sharing These Nude Photos?

      On Tuesday, Bella Thorne retweeted a collection of nude photos, posted by anonymous Twitter user @comproimse, that were allegedly of her ex, Gregg Sulkin. There were three pictures: one of half of Sulkin's face, one of a person's chest, and one of a person's penis. Provided the photos are of who the poster says they are, and since they weren't posted by Sulkin himself, it's likely they were posted without his consent. By retweeting the photos, Thorne distributed them to her 6.55 million followers. A lot of the specifics are up in the air, but this news raises an interesting question. Let's say, for a moment, these pictures are of Sulkin and they were posted without his consent. Did Thorne commit

    • Miguel Ferrer Dies: A Look Back at the TV Veteran’s Biggest Roles (15 photos)

      Miguel Ferrer has died at age 61 . The veteran actor, best known for his most recent role as Owen Granger on NCIS: Los Angeles , passed away at his home after a battle with throat cancer. Ferrer continued working on NCIS up until his death, with the show's writers ultimately writing his illness into his character's storyline. Ferrer came from an acting family — he was the son of Oscar-winning actor Jose Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney and cousin to George Clooney. After the actor's death, his famous cousin remembered him with a poignant statement, saying, "Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you, Miguel. We always will." An accomplished drummer, Ferrer toured with his mother and Bing Crosby in the 1970s. But acting was Ferrer's forte, and his impressive TV career included roles on a long list of popular television shows over the past 30 years, including Crossing Jordan , Magnum, P.I., CHiPS, and Cagney & Lacey , as well as a very memorable guest role on Will & Grace . In 2017, Ferrer was ready to reprise his Twin Peaks role as FBI agent Albert Rosenfeld on Showtime's revival of the series.
