Top 10 Beauty Products for Summer


  1. Sunscreen with SPF (this one is obvious!): We currently love Sun Bum Continuous Spray, MD Solar Sciences Mineral Creme and these 3 sunscreens for summer.
  2. UPF Clothing: Your clothes only give you a UPF of 5, so UPF clothing is a necessity! We love Mott 50!
  3. Charcoal Scrub: Sweat and grime will clog up pores, so using a facial scrub with charcoal (the sulfur banishes blemishes) is a must!
  4. Hair Mask: Salt water and chlorine will rob your hair of moisture, so a good replenishing hair mask is in order! We love L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm,  Salon Graphix Intensive Hair Repair Masque, and Gail’s DIY Homemade Deep Conditioning Mask.
  5. Bright Nail Polish: Cheerful colors are what summer is made of. We love Impala Palmeira Tropical and Essie Off the Shoulder (I love it as a hot pink French Manicure).
  6. Vitamin C: Age spots only become more pronounced in the summer sun, so a great Vitamin C serum will fade them. We love these 4 age spot minimizers.
  7. Body Lotion: Skin can become parched and dehydrated in the warmer months too. We love A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Energizing Citrus Body LotionDial Skin Therapy 7-Day Moisturizer, LAVANILA Vanilla Coconut Body Butter, and J.R. Watkins Coconut Milk & Honey Body Butter.
  8. Summertime Fragrance: Something light with citrus or florals is great for summer. We love LAVANILA Vanilla Passion Fruit, Michael Kors Suede, and these 4 summer scents.
  9. Moisturizer: Maintain radiant summer skin with a BB cream! We love Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Instant Perfecting BB Cream.
  10. Body Scrub: A summer glow is important! We love Tocca Nourishing Body Scrub and Daisies & Dukes Bubbly Sugar Scrub.
