Summer Skincare Saviors
Now that summer is here, I think we can all agree that a beautiful base for our skin is a necessity. There is nothing better than having a solid skincare routine set and stone for the new season. The Tata Harper Superkind Softening Cleanser is the ultimate first step. This gentle cleanser does not strip your skin of its natural oils, but also gently dissolves impurities caused by any stress from the past seasons (don’t worry, I think we can all relate). After those long days in the sun, the last thing you want is a harsh cleanser on your sensitive skin.
To keep your skin hydrated from the ocean salt and the dryness of summer itself, the new Augustinus Bader The Light Cream does it all. It’s a lightweight formula that hydrates, revives, protects, and improves skin appearance while mattifying! So with all of the glowy SPF products on top (we’re getting to those, just wait), this makes the perfect base.
Your New BFF: SPF
All we have to say is: SPF, SPF, SPF! Please, for the love of skincare gods, do not forget your sunscreen step in your morning routine. It is the most important, no - the ONLY step that matters. The Supergoop Glowscreen SPF 40 is our current favorite. Your skin will have a luminous pearlescent finish without looking greasy. What more could you ask for?
Fun fact: Did you know that your hands actually show the first signs of aging due to sun exposure? We always think to put sunscreen on our face and body (or at least, we hope so), but rarely on areas such as our hands, which are also very prone to sun spots and wrinkles. But do not fret, the Revive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream SPF 15 Sunscreen is the perfect solution. This formula firms and hydrates the skin reproducing elasticity in your hands. Better yet, the rose scent gives you all the fresh floral feels for summer! Make sure to reapply as often as you can, especially after hand washing.
Last, but certainly not least in our SPF journey is the Supergoop PLAY Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 50 with Vitamin C. This body mist is so easy to apply and better yet, water-resistant. This means you should have no problem dipping in a body of water (just don’t forget to reapply post-swim). Helpful tip: apply your SPF 30 minutes before sun exposure so you don’t burn.
Natural Beauty Routine
Natural and fresh makeup is the ultimate look we all strive for this season and the Tom Ford Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 is the perfect answer. Not only is there hyaluronic acid in the formula, but it also gives your skin an even and natural complexion AND has SPF. Your skin will look flawless but not cakey at all.
To add more glow and golden color to your complexion, the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand is absolutely stunning on the high points of your cheeks (and everywhere else you want to shine). You will be glowing all summer long! 10/10 recommend.
And what is better than a juicy lip for the summertime? (This is rhetorical). The Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm is one of our favorite new arrivals. Besides the gorgeous color, the ultra-comfy balmy texture will keep your lips plumped and hydrated. People will not be able to get over your beautiful lips and neither will you!
Summer Body and Hair
There is absolutely no better feeling than a shower after a long day in the sun. To give your hair a clean feel, the R + CO Essential Shampoo is simply best. After use, your hair will be soft and voluminous with a perfect shine. This shampoo rids all impurities in your hair, while renewing strength and body.
If you want that natural beachy wave look, the Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray is one of our favorites to finish off a blowout. You will get the sea salt waves without the sea-salt feeling on your hair. Looking like a beachy goddess, you will be wondering how you ever lived without this product for the summertime.
This after shower product is a must-have: Oribe Desertland Replenishing Body Cream. This luxurious and hydrating formula leaves your skin feeling ultra-soft and replenished. Plus, the fresh scent of this product is incredible. We’re obsessed!
For the ultimate summer fragrance, a spritz of Parfums De Marly Delina La Rosee is everything. A beautiful scent of turkish rose and peony will give you a feminine, fresh, and sexy scent. Side effects include: overflowing compliments.
We hope you enjoyed our summer beauty guide! We are truly IN LOVE with these products and carefully curated them to be the perfect solutions to all your summer fantasies. Enjoy your sunkissed season and have a happy summer!
