Summer has officially begun. My least favorite season. Here are just a few of my Summer Beauty Must Haves that help me through this terrible season of heat.
Summer Beauty Must Haves
Everything is is in the picture above.
If you are the outdoorsy type of gal who likes to garden and get your hands dirty, you know that your cuticles (and hands) need some extra tender loving care. I don’t work outside, I try not to go outside during this time of the year. But I do workout and that wears on my hands as well. So, I have to use heavy cream lotion for my hands and cuticles. I like Burt’s Bees Hand Salve and their Almond & Milk Hand Cream. I like to keep it slathered on.
And you know it is shorts and swimsuit season! That means shaving of the legs on a regular basis. Ugh, I HATE having to shave my legs. I have stolen The Gent’s Post Shave Repair Gel made by Kiehl’s. I even use it on my underarms, after I shave. Love this product, it keeps my skin from being irritated and no razor burns/bumps. My legs are silky smooth!
Now, this next little product is something I picked up on a whim from Anthropology. It is a shimmer stick made by Albeit. I’m not sure but I think it is exclusive to Anthropology? I don’t know but I love this little shimmer stick. It comes in two colors, I have the one in Champagne color. Bellini is the other color. It is a great all-purpose shimmer stick. I like to use it during the summertime to add well, some shimmer. I use it on my cheeks, nose, chest, and even my shoulders. It just adds a little punch to the summer tan.
My latest purchase is from Make Up Forever, their Pro-Sculpting Lip in #10. It is a lightweight lip pen with a highlighter. It has the color on one end and on the other end is the highlighting element. Love it! It is quick, easy, and lightweight for summer. I love the color choices, just enough for some color and the highlighting side adds some dimension. Yes, you can still have that pouty lip during the summer months!
Of course, we cannot forget water. Yes, water! Drink a ton of water, it is good for your health and skin. I don’t think I need to go on and on about this one. It is self-explanatory. Just try to drink more of it.
You know as well as I that there are a TON of Summer Beauty Products that everyone can recommend. These were just the top few that come to mind for me.
What about your recommendations? Please comment with your suggestions. I always love to try new things.
