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.

    • Black-eyed mugshot of Lancaster County suspect gets national attention, disbelief

      A police mug shot taken in Lancaster County, S.C., is drawing attention across the country for what appears to be a blond woman with black eyes. The mug shot is of 24-year-old Morgan Joyce Varn, who faces charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and property damage in Lancaster County. She remained in the Lancaster County jail Friday without bond. It is the kind of case that typically doesn’t get attention beyond county lines, but the story was being picked up across the nation Friday due to Varn’s striking image: Full head of blond hair, pale forehead covered in tattoos, and the whites of her eyes appearing to be black and reflective like glass. Social media commenters quickly picked up on the photo,

    • Butt goes to Denver, Michigan football still chasing draft record

      As Michigan chases the NFL modern draft record of 14 selections, Day 3 is the Wolverines moving day. Six players were taken the first two days -- Jabrill Peppers and Taco Charlton in the first round, then Chris Wormley, Jourdan Lewis, Delano Hill and Amara Darboh in the third round. That gave the Wolverines their biggest haul since the 2008 draft when seven U-M players were selected, and today there are four rounds to go. When Jake Butt was drafted to open the fifth round, he became the 10th U-M player picked, the most since 10 Wolverines went in the 1974 draft. Fifth round -- Tight end Jake Butt was drafted No. 145 overall to open the fifth round, a precipitous fall after his ACL tear in the

      The build-up to US president Donald Trump’s 100th day in office has been, as is his custom, conflicted. Worried about negative publicity, Trump has recently tried to downplay the 100-day mark as an “artificial barrier.” Which it arguably is—but he set it himself, declaring a bold set of 28 promises to fulfil in 100 days…

    • Mom's alone, and the kids don't come around

      Dear Amy: I have three grown children. They are all gainfully employed, with good educations and good relationships. I feel we have a good relationship, and when we are together, we seem to have fun. My husband travels internationally and is gone frequently. Never once has it ever occurred to any of my children (who live an hour or less away) to call me and ask me to go out to grab a bite to eat or even to visit. They know I am here alone. They are perfectly happy to let me come to them and treat them to a meal, but they never reciprocate. I am 62 and retired. I have activities and friends, but my family is important to me. I was always involved in all my children's activities. I worked part

In a photo exclusively obtained by Terez Owens, the Packers quarterback is seen with a blond woman walking the course at the Westchester Golf Course in Los Angeles. A source confirmed to the site that Rohrbach is the woman in question. Though Rodgers recently revealed he cut back on golf to focus more on his fitness, it seems he’s willing to make an exception for Rohrbach, the model-turned-actress who appears in the upcoming “Baywatch” movie and previously dated

Sharapova, a five-time Grand Slam winner and former world number one, lost 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 to Kristina Mladenovic as the Russian exited her first tournament back from a ban after testing positive for meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open. "I’m not angry, I’d have loved to have used the opportunity when I was ahead in the second set, so I had a bit of a let down which allowed her to get back in the match, gain confidence and play well," said Sharapova.
