2017 Summer Beauty Must-Haves

The sizzling summer sun will be here before you know (or if you’re in Florida, you’ve already started applying sun block) so now is the time to get ready with some of this summer’s must-have beauty essentials. We’ve got you covered on what you should be using to keep you looking fresh and fun. Check out our list of summer staples you can’t go without.
An oldie but a goodie, Carmex has been a trusted source of lip care for as long as there has been sunshine – at least it feels that way. Their classic lip balm contains medicated, SPF 15 sunscreen lip protection that can hold up in the hottest of hot days. Using candelilla wax for long lasting wear and cocoa seed butter for moisture, this little balm goes a long way. For extra special care, try the new Comfort Care lip balms with colloidal oatmeal that soothes and antioxidants from fruit seed oils that help restore. Available in mixed berry, sugar plum, and watermelon blast, this new line will give your old cherry stick a run for its money.


The summer is about digging your toes in the sand and soaking up the sun, not being chained to a blow dryer and curling iron. Luckily, there’s a book to help you tackle your mane and get a care-free, summer smitten look. “Unruly Curls,” by Michael Price is a how-to for your do. Big, bouncy, beautiful curls and waves that scream summer are now easier than ever to manage. Maintenance tips, tools of the trade, and even how to approach your hairstylist can all be found in this one helpful little book. Get your hands on this book and get curling, your summer hair will thank you.


While your lashes may be giving Daisy Duck something to envy and your tinted moisturizer has your skin looking sun-kissed and glowing, how you take it all off at the end of the day can determine what kind of shape your skin is in for the whole season. Heavy, oily, harsh makeup removers can irritate your precious skin leaving it blotchy, red, and sensitive. So what should you use? Micelle solutions. Bioderma has introduced a line of makeup removing micelle water that cleanses away makeup, dirt, and debris without stripping as it protects and boosts your resistance to environmental factors. With formulas specializing in sensitive, dehydrated sensitive, and combination/oily skin, there’s a solution for nearly every skin type.


Now get out there and take on the summer!
