8 Summer Beauty Buys
Summer is a chance to lighten up your beauty routine, as well as try new products. These items will keep your skin, hair, and face looking great all summer long, plus are user-friendly and easy to pack for a summer weekend getaway.
It goes without saying that sunscreen should be worn every day outdoors, so be sure to purchase one with a high SPF number during summer months. Your foundation or face cream should also do double duty and contain SPF. One to try: Lancome’s Bienfait Teinte Beauty Balm, which provides natural coverage and hydration along with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen.
If you are stuck inside all week at work, but still want that summer glow, try a self-tanner. St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan is very easy to use as it is applied to wet skin, and then rinsed off after only three minutes. You’re left with an even skin tone, with none of the dreaded orange streaks. Check out Beauty Bridge’s St. Tropez self-tanner starter kit.
Bronzer is a quick way to add color to your face, and make people think you spent the weekend at the beach. Lancome’s Star Bronzer is a sheer powder that contains light-reflecting pigments that create a tanned makeup effect.
Sea Salt Spray
Who doesn’t want the effortless look of beachy waves? You don’t have to exert effort to get them with a sea salt spray. Simply spray onto damp hair and scrunch to give the impression that you spent the day at the beach. We like Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray.
Sun and heat can take a toll on even the healthiest hair. Hair experts recommend doing a deep treatment once a week to improve dry hair. The Fragrance Shop features a variety of hair treatments based on hair type to keep your tresses in top shape all summer long.
Hydrating Lip Gloss
Lips can also become dry with summer’s elements, but a hydrating lip gloss will help keep them moisturized all day long. Look for one that contains SPF to keep your lips protected from the sun. If you aren’t a fan of the colored lips look, you can get one in a nude or clear color, or try a lip balm instead.
A body scrub will remove the dirt and sweat of the day by exfoliating the skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and clean. We like Get Fresh’s sugar body scrubs, available in scents like Lemongrass, Peppermint, Blackberry Vanilla, or Starfruit and are available on Beauty Bridge.
Warmer temperatures mean wearing lighter clothing, and lighter fragrances. Many perfume manufacturers make a ‘summer’ or ‘light’ scent for the warmer months, that is not as heavy as the regular scent. Beautiful Summer in Bloom by Estee Lauder is the ultimate light fragrance, and is available at Fragrance Emporium
