The hot weather that is finally hitting Michigan means it time for one thing – the outdoors! After being locked in the house all winter long I’m ready to break out that new swimsuit and hit the beach, the park, the hiking trails, or whatever the summer activity of the week it is! One of the things I try to do at least once a month during summertime is catch an outdoor concert. There’s something so relaxing about chilling on the lawn (mainly because the tickets are dirt cheap), enjoying a hot pretzel and listening to some good music. Outdoor concerts are a little bit trickier for me to prep for though because they start in the evening but go on as the night gets cooler, and I want to up my beauty game but not look overdone. It’s a fine balance between skincare and makeup! I’m sharing how I get prepped for my favorite summer outdoor concerts with my secret to how I look good: the easiest summer skincare routine, ever.

STEP 1 – I prep my skin and cleanse away oils, stress, yesterday’s mascara, etc., with the Neutrogena® Hydroboost Hydrating Cleanser. This keeps my skin hydrated and fresh but removes what needs to be removed.

STEP 2 – As soon as I’m done cleansing I give my skin a good slathering of moisturizer to soak in and rehydrate where I’ve gently scrubbed and cleansed. The Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 is the perfect candidate for the job – it’s oil free so it won’t reclog my pores when I start getting a little oily throughout the night, but it still gives me a little SPF protection when the night starts.

STEP 3 – Spots be gone! No one likes to bring an uninvited guest to the concert so I carry with me an emergency tube of the Neutrogena On-The-Spot Treatment, or as I refer to it, “the On-The-Spot Lifesaver”!

STEP 4 – Now that my skin is fresh, I don’t want to cover it up so I aim to softly enhance. I use the Neutrogena 3 in 1 Concealer in Fair, a shade lighter than my true skintone (pro tip!) to lighten and brighten my undereyes and forehead, and give my lips an extra oomph with the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in the shade Plum Perfect.
