Yesterday was the first official day of summer which means you need to go out and properly stock up on some new beauty products for fun in the sun.
Spending time in the sun can be damaging to your hair so you have to make sure you condition it frequently. I like Phytocitrus’s Restructuring Hair Mask. This rich treatment delivers a blend of citrus fruits and proteins that effectively restructure the hair fiber, and boost radiance. When used daily, it keeps your hair color bright, vibrant, and illuminated with shine.
I don’t like to wear a lot of make up in the summer and that is why I love Cargo’s Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. Cargo’s new Tinted Moisturizer is a potent mix of anti-aging busters - vitamins A, C, E and Tea extract - and free of parabens, fragrance and pore-clogging oils. Added bonus: It’s got all-natural sunscreens titanium dioxide and zinc oxide for an SPF of 20.
While in the sun, don’t neglect your lips. Keep your lips soft, supple, kissable, and protected with a hint of color. Jemma Kid’s protective lip balm contains apricot kernel oiland karite butter that smoothes and hydrates for soft, moisturized lips all year long, leaving them feeling soft and supple. An SPF of 15 also shields against UV damage.
In order to keep your skin soft you have to make sure you moisturize and exfoliate once a week. Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish is yummy in a jar. Spa-grade buffers whisk away rough patches at the knees and elbows, while almond, apricot, and jojoba oils leave skin impossibly soft and supple. The sugar polish even smells yummy enough to eat!
