Our Favourite Summer Beauty Picks
Summer means a whole host of welcome changes: we shed long layers for short, ditch the boots and scarves for flowy layers, and we get to reach for our beach towels and sunscreen. And of course our skincare routine changes to accommodate lighter hydration, suncare, and cooling ingredients.
Today we’re going through the Summer beauty we’re reaching for as the weather warms.
The perfect product for a time when lightening our locks professionally isn’t an option. Sun Bum’s Blonde Formula Hair Lightener brightens and tones hair by amplifying the natural highlighting effects of the sun. Just spritz and let this pineapple and honey-infused formula work its magic!
Lip care often falls to the wayside during the summer months, and why not? Humidity means we need less chapstick, but for extra plump and juicy lips we love reaching for 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss. Made with deeply moisturizing vitamin E and antioxidant-rich pigments from fresh fruit, it’s the yummiest summer treat for your lips!
We can’t avoid it, days spent resting on the beach, pool or lake-side means tangles galore. To help us tame our unruly summer hair we reach for Kristin Ess’s Fragrance Free Detangling Tonic. Use on towel-dried hair before you blow dry or air dry for tangle and frizz free locks without unwanted added fragrance.
There’s no worse feeling on a hot, sticky summer day then being caught with your hair down and nothing to do about it. Enter scrunchies! Chic, crease-resistant and better at warding off those pony-tail headaches, we recommend never leaving the house without it!
A favourite year-round, this Beauty Elixir from Caudalie comes in this convenient travel-sized spray that makes it a summer bag must-have. Akin to Starbucks in a bottle, the refreshing and powerful plant based concoction is an instant pick me up and smells as amazing as it feels.
This dual-purpose sea salt spray is basically the ocean in a bottle. We love spritzing it through our hair for that beachy, salt-water look, even when salt-water isn’t available. Plus it can be used on skin or even as room spray for a quick refresh. The yummy natural fragrance of coconut and vanilla transports you to a tropical paradise!
What’s summer without that sun kissed radiance? When you need a little help looking extra glowy, consider Vapour Beauty Highlight Stick. Simply tap onto cheeks, brow bones and your upper lip line for a subtle, candlelit, glow-from-within vibe. We love using this after a day in the sun with just a swipe of lip gloss for a natural, pared down look.
And the most important beauty accessory, the one we never leave the house without — suncare! We love the new Salt & Stone sunscreen stick because it’s compact size and easy application makes it virtually impossible to be sun-irresponsible. Keep one in your beach bag, your pocket, your car and never be without sun protection again!
