I don’t know about you, but my skin and hair go a little crazy during summertime. I’ve put together a great list of summer beauty essentials that I’ve been using, in case you were looking for some new products.
During the warmer months, I tend to be outside more (and travel more), so I’m layering sunscreen, makeup, moisturizer, etc. My hair takes a beating from swimming (chlorine), and heat styling. Today I’m sharing some great makeup options, moisturizer options, hair products, skincare products and more.
- Sun Bum – Their Deep Conditioning Masque was specifically formulated to restore essential hydration and enhance overall softness and smoothness to dry, damaged or over-processed hair. Their most decadent treatment is Infused with Amla and Bamboo Extract that helps strengthen your hair, making it resilient and more manageable.
- Dew Puff – DewPuff is made from fiber of an Asian root vegetable called ‘Konjac’, and water. The beautiful simplicity of this facial sponge is that it contains only two ingredients. For thousands of years, Japanese people have been eating a jelly like food made from this konjac fiber called ‘Kon-nyaku’. The dietary fiber made from konjac fiber (which is the main ingredient of kon-nyaku food) has an amazing ability to retain water. This makes konjac fiber an ideal ingredient for moisturizing facial sponges. DewPuff, armed with konjac dietary fiber, is very moisturizing when soaked in water. Gently massaging skin with a moist DewPuff is refreshing and provides a unique exfoliation effect to skin.
- DDF – This lightweight protective hydrator not only protects from UVA&UVB rays but also contains antioxidants and moisturizers to help minimize lines & wrinkles and provide a more youthful look. Dye-Free, Lanolin-Free, Oil-Free, Fragrance-Free. Absorbs quickly.
- Frownies – FROWNIES Facial Patches assist to soften and smooth the appearance of deep wrinkles or fine lines mechanically, without any harsh chemicals or needles.
- Eau Thermale Avene – Give your complexion a flawless look while protecting from sun damage with Avene’s Complexion Correcting Shield. This unique formula combines the maximum protection of 100% mineral broad spectrum sunscreen with the complexion-perfecting and hydrating properties of a tinted moisturizer. Enhanced with soft focus microspheres to instantly blur imperfections for skin that looks beautiful and healthy.
- Malin + Goetz – Their moisturizing lip treatment is a cult favorite and among the best in its class. Long-lasting, highly nourishing and ultra conditioning, this moisture-rich gel deeply hydrates and actively heals dry, chapped or cracked lips. The clear, non-sticky finish leaves lips soft and comforted. Peppermint and lime extract add a refreshing scent.
- Revolve Makeup Drop – The MakeupDrop has revolutionized flawless makeup and skincare application forever.
