Summer heat is a welcome change from blustery winters, but can create its own issues with beauty. Whether you’re going for a summery wardrobe, or boldly trying out a new hair color, it’s crucial to test out some new beauty routines and adapt to the season’s sun-soaked activities.
Below you’ll find 10 of the beauty products that we swear by as part of our summer beauty routines.
Mary Kay TimeWise Anti-Aging Tone-Correcting Serum
This lightweight serum not only reduces the visibility of sun damage and dark spots on the face, it also brightens your skin’s overall tone. Two quick daily applications allow the serum ample time to soak into your skin and repair any damage you may have gotten during your long summer days in the sun.
Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream from bareMinerals
We all know how damaging UV rays can be after hours spent out in the sun, but how many of us actually remember to put on sunscreen in the morning? Combine many different needs with this lightweight tinted moisturizer containing SPF. The hydrating cream nourishes your skin while protecting it from sun damage to give you a bronzed look.
Schick® Hydro Silk Women’s TrimStyle® Razor
Investing in a good razor is an essential summer beauty choice. Beach days and short shorts don’t need to be ruined by unsightly bikini lines or scratchy legs. Schick’s Hydro Silk Razor offers five Curve Sensing® blades to fit all your curves without irritation to make sure you get the best shave possible. It can also be flipped into a trimmer to maintain your bikini line in and out of the shower!
OUAI Leave In Conditioner
Frizzy hair is one of those inevitable evils that accompany summer heat. Beat it by spritzing some Ouai Leave In Conditioner into your hands and running them through your locks. It’s paraben-free and has no drying alcohols that dehydrate hair so it leaves hair shiny and smooth.
Not Your Mother’s® Beach Babe® Texturizing Dry Shampoo
If you can’t get to the coast, you can still get beachy waves with Beach Babe. This spray’s cruelty and paraben-free magic will reduce unwanted oil and grease in your hair and leave it smelling fresh. It will also help boost your hair’s volume and get you ready for any adventure.
ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
This ultra-purifying face mask helps many different skin types, including oily, dry, and sensitive. It works to deep clean your skin and shrink your pores. The charcoal in the mask removes oil while the clay absorbs toxins that might have built up in your pores. Use it twice a week to see visibly clearer skin and smaller pores.
NYX Makeup Setting Spray- Matte
Getting a makeup setting spray that will outlast sweat and pool water is essential if you’re going to maintain a beauty routine throughout the warmer months. This matte spray from NYX Cosmetics is lightweight and doesn’t leave a shine behind to give you all-day protection for every adventure the summer brings!
COOLA Organic SPF 30 Scalp & Hair Spray
It’s not just your skin that needs protection from the sun, but your hair and scalp as well! Try out this scalp and hair mist to shield your locks from color-stripping and drying UV rays, and keep your scalp from getting sunburned. The product’s Monoi Oil nourishes your hair while the other organic, antioxidant-rich ingredients show your hair some natural love.
Make Up Forever Artist Rouge Lipstick
This lipstick is luminous and lightweight and contains Vitamins C and E to nourish your lips as you go about your day. It also comes in several bright colors to experiment and customize your own look. The Rose Wood color is a good color to experiment with because it’s bright and poppy but not too gaudy. It will help brighten your face and match that new sundress that you’ve been waiting to bust out.
Le Volume De CHANEL Mascara
There’s nothing worse than emerging out of a pool with raccoon eyes. This water-proof mascara gives high-precision lines and volumizing color that won’t smudge in water. Chanel’s exclusive brush will make your eyes pop and the long-lasting color will draw attention to your face.
