Summer is in full swing, so it's important to have a solid beauty routine nailed down. If your summer includes trips to the beach or weekends spent out of town, having great skin and beauty essentials at your fingertips is key. In my book, the easier, the better. These four beauty products are my tried-and-true favorites for a beautiful summer.
Cetaphil and I go way back. Let's just say that the pre-teen skin years were not my best. In fact, for a very long time this was the only product I could use on my skin without breaking out. It is for that reason that I have a soft spot for their products and always go back to Cetaphil when I have a breakout or skin issue.
That being said, the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths are essential if you plan on spending any time outside or traveling this summer. These pre-moistened cloths are the best for removing makeup and dirt. They are super convenient and perfect for refreshing your face after a long day on the beach or being outside.
Generally speaking, I don't wear a ton of makeup and I tend to wear even less in the summer. However, no matter the season, a good pop of lip color is great--especially with a tan. I have tried so many lipsticks, stains and balms, but my favorite are the Tarte Lip Tints. Mine is the Tarte Power Pigment in Natural Beauty. These babies pack just the right amount of color without any nasty flaking. It's super easy to apply because it's pretty much an adult lip crayon. We can all do that.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is the only hair product that I use in the summer. If you love the tousled beachy look (think Gisele) then this is for you. Just spritz on damp or dry hair and that's it. I can't promise your hair will look like hers, but you will get extra volume and texture without having to do much. It also comes in a baby travel size, which is perfect for sneaking sprays before you snap that selfie. Just kidding.
Last, but not least, the Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Serum. This might just be my secret weapon. I started using this skin oil last year and haven't used anything else since. I balked at the "skin oil" thing at first thinking it would make my skin greasy or break out--it's done the complete opposite. I use this product nightly and it has evened out my skin tone and overall, my skin looks brighter. I take a small amount with me whenever I travel and it's especially good when my skin gets too much sun. Charleston Naturally is my go-to place for organic beauty and they carry Intelligent Nutrients galore.
