Summer Beauty Hacks to Keep Your Hair and Makeup Fresh
This year, summer will bring sunny days to us from our nearest backyard, balcony, rooftop and eventually (hopefully) our nearest beach, but it will also bring on the hot, sticky weather that can take its toll on our skin and hair. Before the sizzling days of summer arrive, we want to make sure you are equipped from a beauty perspective for what’s to come. Ahead, find five summer beauty essentials that’ll keep you looking fresh AF this season, inside or out.

Summer Beauty Essential #1

Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Setting Spray or IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Setting Spray

A longwear setting spray is a must-have this summer to help prevent your makeup from slipping and sliding as the temperatures rise. The Ultra Matte or Your Skin But Better work to keep your look shine-free despite sweat, moisture and more — for up to 16 hours.

Summer Beauty Essential #2

Vichy LiftActiv Peptide-C Sunscreen SPF 30

With SPF 30 and a phyto peptide, vitamin C and Vichy Mineralizing Water complex, this sun protector is perfect to apply all over your face right before makeup application. Beyond antioxidant and UV protection, it also helps keep your skin hydrated for 24 hours, whether you’re inside staying cool or outside in the heat. 

Summer Beauty Essential #3

Lancôme L’Absolu Mademoiselle Lip Balm

A lip balm/gloss hybrid is a must have this summer, and L’Absolu Mademoiselle is one of our favorites. This incredibly hydrating balm leaves behind a tinted, nourishing finish that you’ll look forward to wearing. The best part is that it comes in ten shades, so you can mix and match all summer long.

Summer Beauty Essential #4

Ouai Wave Spray

If you want to add a little texture to your hair without heat styling, try the Ouai Wave Spray. This formula contains rice proteins, coconut water and fragrance to give your hair a beachy look with a natural feel.

L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Water Mousse

To get a bronzed glow without the sun damage, try a lightweight self-tanner like this mousse. The water mousse formula provides a long-lasting tan that develops gradually and hydrates the skin.
