Summer is here, and it is time to up your beauty game! With exposure to heat, sun, and other elements, it is necessary that we say hydrated internally and externally. I have rounded up a few beauty essentials for the summertime, most that I have personally road-tested, that will help you look and feel your best!
French beauty line Caudalie is known for their line of high-quality, natural beauty products, specifically their grape line. Their Grape Water is a great way to prep skin, pre-moisturizer and makeup.
For those that like to wear a little make-up to the beach, or other water-filled activities, waterproof eyeliner and mascara is a must. Klorane’s gel eye make-up remover with soothing cornflower will be your new BFF, tough enough to remove waterproof make-up, with a cool, soothing finish.
Great summer lips come with a dose of high moisturizing capability, and sun protection. Carmex has combined these two major elements with new fun packaging of the warmer months. Their Moisture Plus Lip balm is packed with moisturizing goodies in stick form, with a light vanilla scent, and SPF 15.
To keep skin glowing and safe, it is necessary to have the right sunscreen. COOLA offers up many options, but one of my favorites is their SPF 30 sunscreen spray. Comprised mostly of organic ingredients, the spray is light, water resistant, and offered in fun scents like Piña Colada and Citrus Mimosa.
Sun, chlorine, and salt water exposure can severely damage your tresses in the summer, so it is necessary to deep condition your hair in your off-time. Neutrogena’s Triple Repair line is suitable for all hair types, offering an affordable leave-in treatment for damaged hair. Work through hair and style as usual.
Curly girls always need to give their hair a little more TLC in the summer. Shea Moisture’s Hold & Shine Moisture Mist is a dual-duty product. It can be used on damp hair to moisturize before styling, or as a refresher for curls that have previously been washed. Personally, this product is on me at all times to refresh curls throughout the day.
We hope our picks have been helpful for maintaing moisture in your beauty routine throughout these long summer days and nights. 🙂
