Hi, my darlings! It's finally summer in NYC and it looks like it's going to be a scorcher! Add to that the fact that I'm going home to India, where the heat is way more brutal and I'm already concerned about my skin! I foresee lots of acne and lots of misery...unless I take good care of it! If the key to healthy skin in the winter is moisturization, then I personally believe the key to clear, beautiful skin in the summer is EXFOLIATION! So, I'd like to share five fabulous products that will help with ALL your summer exfoliation needs!

FOR THE BUSY MOMMY : Baiden Mitten ($48.97)
  • Unclog & tighten pores for a firmer, more youthful look
  • Eliminate toxins and impurities for a brighter, more even skin tone
  • Combine the optimal amount of massaging and softness for the perfect exfoliation without being harsh or damaging
  • Stimulate cell rejuvenation and repair to enhance your natural beauty!
  • A finer material to not irritate even the most sensitive skin, making getting around the nose, eyelids, ears, and lips smooth and easy

If you're a busy mom or a girl always on the go, you'll love this product! Because it fits over your hand and needs no cleanser or soap to be effective, you can exfoliate wherever you can reach and even when you just don't have the time for an extended exfoliation session. Trust me. Even without a separate scrub,this mitten, if used at least once a week, will leave your skin feeling smoother and brighter after every use.

FOR THE ALL-NATURAL GIRL : Haconut Original Coconut Scrub ($14.99)
An all-natural, coconut-based body scrub. Our scrub is unique because we use pure coconut shell powder as the exfoliating base, infused with nourishing cold-pressed organic virgin coconut oil and other organic skin-loving oils. We finish off the luxurious mixture with pure coconut sugar, Himalayan pink salt, and organic coconut flakes for added skin benefits. After scrubbing and rinsing, your skin is left feeling soft and lightly moisturized.

This scrub smells like coconuts and tropical beaches and summertime fun! I've never been a huge fan of the smell of coconut oil myself but I know so many of you out there love it. What I really liked was that a little goes a long way with this scrub and you can use it just about anywhere--hands, feet, knees, elbows. It's strong enough to work on rough patches but moisturizing enough that it won't leave you raw or stinging.

FOR VERY DRY SKINAdovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub ($15.95)

  • THE SEA SALT BODY SCRUB: Made with Real Dead Sea Salt - 100% Pure and Genuine for an infusion of 21 Minerals Essential to Proper Skin Function. Great Exfoliator and Moisturizer.
  • THE BENEFITS: Fine Grain Dead Sea Salts Exfoliate the Top Layer of Dead Skin Cells to Reveal a New Younger Looking Layer of Radiant Skin. Deeply Moisturizing Oils Infuse Skin With Luxurious Hydration that Lasts All Day
  • Works Great in The Shower or Bath - Also a Great Hand Exfoliator to use in the Sink or Foot Scrub

I've tried several Adovia products (you can see my reviews HERE, HERE and HERE) and I love their brand--they have quality products for pretty good prices. This scrub not only smells really great but I love how the dead sea salts feel on my skin. The only advice I have--the salts are soaked in tons of oil so it does leave a residue on your skin. Just massage those oils in and skip the moisturizer!

FOR THE INDIE LOVER : All Mixed Up Lacquers' Oatmeal Scrub ($9.50)

All Scrubbed Up is our new line of sugar body scrubs. With nourishing oils and butters and just the right amount of sugar to exfoliate and renew your beautiful skin. With the added benefits oatmeal has on the skin, yours will be soft and radiant all day with our thick oatmeal scrub. This is a very gentle scrub so it will not rip or tear the skin. All natural and still vegan!

This scrub not only smells good but feels so good! It's a much gentler scrub than some on the market because it's made with oatmeal and mixed with lots of natural oils--you won't feel any harsh bits in this tub! For those of you who have sensitive skin, this is a great option to exfoliate without the pain or any discomfort whatsoever.


An ideal marriage of healthy and luxury, Fango is Borghese's line of mineral rich mud treatements. Each Fango treatment delivers nourishing minerals, natural botanicals, and our exclusive Acqua di Vita Complex to renew and restore both the body and the soul.

Is there anything better than a nice, relaxing mask on the weekends? Other than Netflix and pedicures, of course! What I love the most about the Fango line is how customizable the system is--you choose what you think your skin needs! For me, the both the FANGO PURIFICANTE and the FANGO DELICATO worked really well. My skin all but glowed after just a single use!

So there you have it, my darlings! Have you discovered a new skincare product that your skin is loving during the summer months? Or a tried-and-tested fave? I'd love to hear all about them in the comments section below!

Until next time,
