Summer Beauty Must-Haves

Summer Beauty

The arrival of summer means longer days, hotter weather, and hours soaking up the gorgeous sun. With so many things to look forward to this season, it's easy for all of us to start skimping on our beauty routine. Alas, this is probably the worst thing you can do. Between the sun's harmful rays and the weather's crazy humidity, your skin and hair will reap more damage if the correct precautions aren't taken. So today, I'm going to break down an easy summer beauty routine that will have you covered, head to toe nails!

'Tis the season for a low-maintenance hair routine. Before I start any styling, I spritz my hair with some Aveda Suncare Protective Hair Veil. It creates a barrier between the sun's harmful UV rays and my locks, so I don't end up with a head full of split ends by the end of the season. As for styling, I love a tousled beach wave look. This styling mousse from Fekkai makes styling my hair's natural curls quick and easy.

It's time to switch out winter's creamy moisturizer for a lighter version, preferably with some SPF pumped in it. I am a big fan of Simple's Face Moisturizer, which keeps my face fresh without adding extra weight. 

Throughout the day, our face accumulates a lot of dirt and waste. So, it's important to scrub all it away at the end of the day. Lush's Ocean Salt uses sea salt minerals to scrub away dirt and keep my skin looking shiny and clean throughout the season.

Summer is a fun season, so our nails (and toe nails!) should match, right? It's the perfect time of the year to rock funky hues like flirty pink, bright tangerine, and sunny yellow!

Just like with our face, our bodies need a little extra TLC.  Invest in a good sugar scrub to wash away dead skin cells and residue. Go the extra mile by using a body brush to polish your skin to perfection. Lastly, since we're probably going to be reaching for those short shorts and mini skirts this season, it's always a good idea to keep our gams in good condition. If you're lacking a little color on your legs, use MAC's Bronze Everyday Skinsheen Leg Spray to give yourself a little bronzy glow. It'll keep your legs looking toned and amazing!
