Summer is finally here and whether you’re traveling, hitting the beach or just enjoying some time in your own backyard, you want to make sure that you’re stocked with all the necessary beauty essentials.
Sunscreen- An essential component of any summer beauty bag is your sunscreen. Protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and try to find a sunscreen of at least SPF 30. Try Hawaiian Tropic’s Silk Hydration Lotion sunscreen, which comes in SPF 50. This sunscreen provides 12 hours of continuous moisture and nourishes and pampers the skin while providing UVA and UVB protection.
Exfoliating scrub- Summer means showing a lot more skin so it’s a good idea to try an exfoliating scrub to keep your skin bright and clear. Clinique’s exfoliating scrub de-flakes skin, unclogs pores and softens fine lines to help you achieve a clearer and more refreshed-looking complexion.
Lip balm- Keep those lips soft and luscious with Sephora’s nourishing lip balm. This hydrating balm keeps your lips soft, comfortable, and looking great. It contains shea butter, beeswax, grapeseed oil, vitamin E, and meadowfoam seed oil to moisturize your lips. This lip balm is only $5.00 at Sephora so it’s a definite summer must have!
Bronzer-. Get natural looking glowing skin with Bare Mineral’s California breeze bronzing trio. This golden bronzing trio is great for everyday healthy radiance and a fresh, sun-kissed glow. Three universally flattering shades combine to give your skin natural-looking, multidimensional warmth.
Hair mask- Increased exposure to the sun, chlorine from swimming in the pool, and salt from beach water can be damaging to your hair during the summer season. Avoid breakage and damage with the Agave Restorative Hydrating Mask. This intensive hair treatment is loaded with agave plant sugars that hydrate and heal dry and damaged hair. This treatment polishes and restores elasticity and will leave your hair looking shiny and polished.
