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.

    • Ask Amy: My husband told me to ‘get over it,’ so here’s my plan

      DEAR AMY: I have been married for 33 years. I love my husband, but I have totally enabled him — to the point where I am now feeling abused. For instance, this morning, he was in a minor car accident. Through my business relationships, I have an excellent contact in the repair business, and so I kindly took his car in, gave him mine to use in the interim and picked up the rental. I asked him to drive the rental so I could have my car back, and he refused. I told him I felt used. He basically said I should get over it. Because of my family background and decades of behaving this way, I am now at the point where I feel incredibly put upon because of all of the expectations, as well as the total

    • Shaffer: Trump Wiretapping Case Exponentially 'Worse Than Watergate'

      Former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer said the basics of President Trump's claim to have been "wiretapped" are likely true, and that the incident is "worse than Watergate." Noting it has been exactly two weeks since Trump tweeted that President Obama wiretapped his namesake tower, Shaffer said the "basic fundamental idea and claim is true." He said that Trump was not physically wiretapped, with a wire into his phone, and it may not have physically been Trump Tower, but his campaign apparatus instead. Shaffer said that due to the simplicity required to "mask" an American's name during an incidental wiretap, that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn's name was "accidental on purpose." "Clearly they were

    • Poker tables keep decreasing on Nevada casino floors

      LAS VEGAS (AP) — When the Monte Carlo casino closes its eight-table poker room in about a month as part of a $450 million overhaul, the Las Vegas Strip will be down nearly a quarter of the tables it had a decade ago. Casinos constantly adjust their floors to meet customer demand. And unlike the boom years when they competed for card fans after everyman Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker’s main event in 2003, poker’s appeal in Sin City has been weakening this decade. Some casinos have made their poker rooms smaller. Others have eliminated them entirely. “Casinos added more tables in response to popularity, and once it became less popular, they took away the tables,” said David Schwartz,

    • Trump calls Democrats 'losers' after GOP health bill failure

      President Donald Trump spoke out Friday afternoon after Republicans pulled the Obamacare overhaul he had endorsed, criticizing Democratic opposition to the bill and passing off the responsibility for its failure. "I've been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode," said Trump, who supported the plan and spent much of the past week personally lobbying for its success. Trump, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and other members of the administration and Republican leadership were working to win over moderate holdouts and members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on the bill, a number of whom had opposed the measure.
