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!

Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray
Flat, limp, hair can be a year-round hassle, and the hot summer months do nothing to minimize the problem. Luckily, there’s Oscar Blandi’s mini version of his Dry Shampoo. Without stripping hair of its own natural oils, the shampoo absorbs oil buildup while strengthening and increasing volume at the roots. Light enough that it doesn’t weigh your hair down, this product is particularly good for those with little time for washing and styling. Simply apply between washings to give your hair extra bounce. As an added bonus, Blandi’s shampoo can be used as a corrective for clean hair that’s been subjected to too much product (we’ve all done it) – just spray and refresh!

Dr. Scholl’s Blister Defense Stickicon
One of the best parts of summer is the opportunity to flash a little… toe. A killer pedicure deserves – needs – a killer shoe to show it off. Unfortunately, each new pair of peep-toe wedges also needs to be broken in, giving a whole new meaning to the term “killer.” To combat the dangers of shoe rubbing, apply Dr. Scholl’s Blister Defense Stick directly to your foot, where it works to prevent against blisters and irritation. The easy, glide-on application acts as a buffer between your skin and the shoe without leaving any residue
