Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products
1. Sunscreen is an absolute must.
We all know how important Sunscreen is year round, but especially in the summer when we tend to be exposed to the sun more often and for longer periods of time. I love the Avon Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion! It’s formulated for face and doesn’t leave my skin greasy or shiny like some sunscreen lotions can.
It has an ultra lightweight, fast absorbing formula that doesn’t have the typical “sunscreen white” residue. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, allergy tested and suitable for dry, normal or oily skin.
That light, non-greasy, fast absorbing formula also makes it the most pleasant sunscreen for body that I’ve ever used. Bonus benefit, because I use it for face and body, that’s fewer products to carry on the go. (I keep one in my tote bag for those unexpected outings or days when the morning gets a little hectic and I get out of the house without applying sunscreen)
2. After sun care is just as important
Even when you are super careful about being sun safe, sunburns do sometimes happen. When they do my family reaches for the Jeju 99% Aloe Soothing Gel. It cools the heat, soothes the itch and quickly returns our skin to it’s normal shade.
And summer doesn’t just mean sunburns. Whether it’s the dry air indoors, or the elements outdoor drying out your skin, a little soothing can be just what you need.
The Jeju Aloe gel is non-sticky and absorbs nicely. It also have 9 other soothing herb extracts and can be used on face or body.
3. No Bugs on Me!
The sun is not the only thing you want to avoid while enjoying nature during the summer…you also have to worry about bugs.
While I often hear about the many people who have sworn by our original Skin So Soft bath oil to repel bugs for as long as they can remember (it has been around 60 years) My family depends on Skin So Soft Bug Guard to keep away pests.
It’s proven, deet-free protection from a wide variety of biting insects including mosquitos, deer ticks, black flies, gnats and no-seeums.
We use the Expedition during the day because it also has SPF28 and you can never have too much sun protection. We like the aerosol spray because you can spray it at any angle and get all those hard to reach places.
At night, or when we travel the Picaridin wipes are easy to pack and easy to use. The wipes are individually wrapped so I always have one in my tote bag for those unexpected bug encounters.
4. Muggy Days Call for Magix
Summer temps combined with high humidity, like we have here during monsoon season means one thing. A permanent layer of sweat that makes your face shine in all the wrong ways.
Those are the days when I reach for Magix Prime. The original Magix product it’s still my favorite. It stops shine and smooths my skin, minimizing the look of pores and lines so my makeup goes on smoother and looks great all day.
It can be worn alone too just to softly blur any imperfections and provide SPF 20 protection. Magix Prime is Vegan, free from sulfates, parabens and talc, and it’s non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.
5. Water-resistant for the Win
Water-resistant and Water-proof makeup is a must have when the heat cranks up the sweat factor, and when you want to enjoy a cooling dip in the pool, or the nearest body of water.
We have a great selection of water-resistant makeup but I did want to keep this list at 5 summer must haves so I’m just going to share my favorite. Glimmershadow liquid eyeshadow.
I picked this one because we have the perfect shade for any look you want to create. From bold shades with a bit of glitter, to neutral matte sateen shades for a natural look you can mix and match the 15 shades to create everything from a no-makeup makeup look to a classic smoky eye to a daring full glam look.
It’s also so easy to use. You can perfectly apply a single shade in under a minute, mix two shades for a customer shade or grab an applicator more a more precise, multi-shade look.
It doesn’t crease, smudge or transfer and it give stay-all-day wear. It’s free from sulfates, parabens and talc.
With all the water-resistent and water-proof make up we use during the summer months, I will give an honorable mention to our waterproof eye and lip makeup remover, and 2 of our new cleansers that just melt all the makeup (and sunscreen) right off. The 2 in 1 Exfoliating Balm and the Soothing Whipped Oil Cleanser.
