How To Get Ready for Summer in 5 Steps


This post has been sponsored by Pure Silk. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A new season means a new beauty routine. Whenever the weather changes, or a new season begins, I like to amp up my beauty regime, especially after a long, cold winter. I don’t know about you, but I could always use some extra pampering in the beauty department after months of cold, dry weather. Summer is all about wearing colorful, flowy looks, and embracing the warm weather, so I like to make sure my skin is looking it’s best. Today I am partnering with Pure Silk to share how I get summer-ready in five easy steps.


Summer means warmer weather, which means it’s time to break out the dresses, skirts, and shorts. I think it’s safe to say that most women prefer to have smooth, shaven legs when wearing their summer wardrobe. Shaving is part of my everyday routine, but it’s especially important during the warmer seasons. Pure Silk’s line of razors and shave creams make shaving luxurious again. My legs literally feel like silk once I’m done shaving in the shower. It’s the first line of premium disposable razors and shave creams that I’ve used that leave me feeling confident and flirty. Who knew shaving could evoke all of this positivity?! I’m a firm believer in the idea that looking your best helps you feel your best, and Pure Silk gives me the confidence to walk proudly when wearing my summer best.

I use both their Pure Silk Contour 6 and Pure Silk Three razors, and they’re both incredible. The Contour 6 adjusts to every contour of my body, ensuring a close, comfortable shave. In the past, I didn’t always opt for a shave cream, but Pure Silk’s Shave Creams are unreal. The scents are lovely and refreshing, but not overpowering, and the formula keeps my skin hydrated. Fun fact: their cans are made of rust-free aluminum so you can store it in your shower at all times, without worry!

After months of no sun, I could sure use a healthy glow. I like to self-tan my entire body, but my legs always need the most love. I always self-tan after shaving with Pure Silk for the most even, natural-looking tan.

The cold winter months always leave my skin feeling dry and looking dull. A moisturizing face mask can help fix that. As a beauty blogger, I obviously love make-up, but it’s crucial to take care of your skin first. Face masks help keep my skin clear and create the perfect canvas for any summer beauty looks I have up my sleeve.

Beauty sleep is a real thing! Summer is my favorite season and I love soaking in as much daylight as possible. Sticking to a better sleep routine helps me feel energized throughout the day, and getting enough sleep does wonders for my skin!

Nothing says summer like a pretty manicure! I always make sure my nails look manicured, but it’s especially fun in the summer months because you can experiment with all different colors.

And in five easy steps, you have the perfect summer beauty look! It’s amazing what a few additions to your beauty routine can do for your confidence.

    I’ve always been nervous to try self tanners for the fact that they’d get all over my hands, but loving this little glove & lotion setup you’ve got going on – I might have to try! x, nicole // http://www.nicoleeigh.com

  • I use this shaving cream!! Amazing & I love the rust-proof cans. Really the reason I buy them.

  • I really need to invest in a self-tanner mitt! I always think I’m applying easily but I never do.

  • I use that shave cream too! It works really good. Pedi is a must during summer time. I agree!

  • Pure Silk is my fav!

  • I love their shaving cream/gel, works so well!

  • Such a great routine! I skip the self-tanner part – I’m pale as heck and can’t seem to tan anyway so I end up orange haha – but the rest sounds like my exact routine. I’m due for a mani/pedi soon too!
