Here are the 10 must-haves that you need to incorporate into your beauty routine this summer
Let’s start with the basics, sunscreen. However, this is a sunscreen that’s anything but basic. This light and fluffy mousse gives you the coverage and protection that your skin needs. This hydrating formula will also help keep your skin nourished which will help to counteract the dryness that the harsh sun can cause.
When it comes to sun protection, don’t ever forget about your lips! Why did I choose this one for my list? Because this lip treatment is recommended by the Skin Care Foundation. It is basically a sunscreen for your lips. After applying, your lips may appear to have a light white coloring. If that bothers you, then I would recommend using a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment.
It’s true that your skin needs different products in the summertime than it does in the winter. If you’re like me and have combination/oily skin, you may want to switch to a matte moisturizer during the summer months. I love this moisturizer, but it does NOT contain an SPF, so this is one that I would wear UNDER my CC Cream.
This CC Cream does it all and is perfect for summertime! It’s anti-aging, color correcting, full coverage and to top it off SPF 50! It comes in 7 different shades. This is a great product to use when you want to do your makeup and don’t want to slather your face with sunscreen. Use it in place of your foundation. It’s perfect for a day of sightseeing. Don’t forget the Beauty Blender!
This four-in-one mist is exactly what you need to up your summer beauty game! It’s a primer, setting spray, hydrating mist, and skin refresher. It basically does everything but put your makeup on for you. This spray can extend the look of your makeup by up to 12 hours! Think about all the patio margaritas you could drink during that time.
After a day of lounging in the sun, your skin is going to need a little love. Make sure to nourish it with a soothing body lotion that will not only moisturize, but help you keep that sun kissed glow.
Salt water, chlorine, and the sun can all majorly dry out your hair, and if your hair is anything like mine, totally impossible to brush. Make sure to take care of your tresses.This detangler is fantastic, and like all Dry Bar products, smells amazing!
When you’re too tired to wash your face after a day or fun or travel, as least use one of these to remove the sweat and makeup from your face. You’ve heard me profess my love for this gentle cleanser by philosophy before, and I love that there is a portable version to bring with me when I’m on the go! The original cleanser is super gentle yet removes all of my makeup. You know these will be in my bag this summer.
If you’ve spent the day driving in the car, or waiting in an airport, a good dry shampoo is exactly what your luscious locks need. Don’t want to shower before headed to the beach? Give your hair a spritz of this dry shampoo for a quick pick me up. Get this limited edition product before it’s gone!
Are you flying this summer and need to bring some TSA-approved sun protection? This Coola kit has everything you need! Not only does it include sunscreen and lip protection but the perfect makeup-setting spray for hot days!
Many of these products are available in smaller sizes, making them perfect travel companions. If your summer is jam-packed like mine, pick up some of these products and keep them in your beach bag, purse, or makeup bag. You’ll be so glad you did. Enjoy!10 Summer Beauty Essentials!
