Sorry I’ve been MIA this week…I can blame it on jet lag and a fun shoot yesterday that I can’t wait to share with you. Hopefully, I’ll have it ready next week! Today, I’m sharing a few summer beauty essentials. These are the items that I use en masse in the summer to keep my skin and hair looking it’s best.
Hair Mask – I use this hair mask through out the year but find that I use it much more often in the summer. My hair is on the drier side anyway, so all the sun, sand and chlorine can take a toll on it. This makes my hair look and feel like silk…In fact, I need to use it tonight!
Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen. – My favorite sunscreen of all time is Juice Beauty Sport. It is the BEST nontoxic sunscreen there is. Period. It truly lasts 80 minutes in the pool or at the beach. I tested it last summer in Mexico and Jamaica and no one got burned. It does not leave a white film behind which is a huge plus. Load up on this! You can get it here and here.
Body Scrub – I love a body scrub year round. I just tried this Herbivore Coco Rose scrub and am hooked! It was a gift a from a friend who knows I love bath products. The virgin coconut oil is super hydrating and the delicate Moroccan rose scent is fabulous. It’s hard to find clean beauty bath products and this one is amazing! I’ll be trying more from this line.
Shimmer Body Oil – I’ve talked about this shimmer oil before but it is part of my daily routine in the summer. I just love the rose neroli scent and, of course, the shimmer! Both are subtle. The scent fades and doesn’t compete with your signature fragrance. The light oil absorbs quickly and keeps your skin hydrated. I apply this and then put on my make up to let it dry before getting dressed. I wear it in most of my photo shoots as well. If you aren’t into the shimmer – it really is so subtle- I love this body oil as well. It has a slight rosemary fragrance and a side benefit of repelling mosquitoes for me!
Cream Blush – This is not your grandmother’s rouge. I’ve been wearing cream blush almost exclusively for two years. It is perfect for summer because it stays put. The plus with my favorites are the colors work for lips and cheeks. I wear one of these two every day. The caramel color is a very natural look and the peony is a bit more pink but not bright. I’ve just ordered this one from another clean beauty company to try. I’ve heard fabulous things about it and the packaging is on point. Trust me. Order one and you’ll be obsessed, too. It’s a great space saver for summer travel.
