Summer Skincare 101

Caring for your skin this summer is all about sun protection. Here’s what you need to keep your face, body, lips, hair and even your nails safe from those harmful rays, and to stay looking fabulous this summer…

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 50, $10.99
Protect your skin with a hydrating sunscreen.  Hawaiian Tropic is known for a delicious tropical scent in their sunscreens.  This new product is less greasy than the original, and is perfect to use as an everyday moisturizer with sun protection.

Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30, $38
Upgrade the SPF in your makeup with a tinted face moisturizer.  It provides skin perfecting coverage as well as SPF 30, which is higher than most cosmetic sunscreens.  I love that Josie Maran makes all of her products with Argan oil, one of the best natural moisturizing ingredients.

Doctor T’s Supergoop SPF 30, $8.50
Don’t forget about your lips! Lip products often don’t have a high SPF, yet our lips have the thinnest skin on our body.  Supergoop’s lip balms smell incredible and are super moisturizing, perfect for a day at the beach.

Living Proof Restore Revitalizing Spray with heat and UV protection, $26
Your hair can fall victim to sun damage as well.  The latest line to come from Living Proof’s labs helps repair dry and damaged hair while keeping it looking smooth and gorgeous.  This conditioning spray protects from heat and the sun’s rays, too!
Tip: use spray on hair after a swim.

 

Essie Sun-e with UV protection, $15
Prevent nail polish from fading or yellowing in the sun with this top coat.  No more dull summer pedicures!

Teva Fuse-ion sneaker, $90
It seems the only option for footwear in the rain is a pair of knee-high boots, but if you’re looking for something more comfortable and lightweight that will still keep your feet dry, Teva’s Fuse-ion sneakers are the perfect solution.

Brighten up a rainy day with one of Ali Ro’s colorful classic raincoats.  The flattering silhouette is chic to wear on a sunny day too!

Ilse Jacobsen Handmade Natural Rubber Boots, $199
These gorgeous rubber boots are handmade in Denmark.  They come in amazing colors and we just love the lace-up detail.  Durable and fashionable.

Our Favorite Summer Hair Care Products

It’s no secret that getting your hair to look great in the summer can be a big challenge. Sun, sand, salt, chlorine, and humidity take a toll on our hair, and that can lead to a less-than-desirable look. In order to get those gorgeous summer locks, we put these (and so many more) products to the test and did the lathering, rinsing, and repeating for you. We might even have the cleanest hair in New York City!  Read on for our favorite picks for summer hair care, including the old stand-bys as well as the hottest new products available. Tip: It is important to switch off between at least two shampoos, conditioners, and styling products to get the best results.

Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray

Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is great to use between washes because it removes the oils that build up at the roots, especially during the summer. We also like to use it when styling for added texture (like when we create a fishtail braid).
