Have a Beautiful Summer!

SummerBeauty Summer has officially arrived! Before it passes us by (as it is wont to do), get out there and soak it up right with our summer beauty rules to live by:

1. Include an SPF in your daily beauty routine. Keep skin looking it’s best by applying an SPF moisturizer to your face every day. This summer I’ve been loving Bare Minerals SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizer ($30).

2. Declare “no shower day” at least one day per week. Give you hair—and hot tools—a break and use dry shampoo instead. Our favorite tip: spritz into roots at night, wake up with cleanish hair!

3. Ditch the lotion and switch to a body serum. If you’ve never used a body serum or oil, then you’ve never known true hydration. Body oils moisturize deeply and leave skin soft, dewy and lightly scented. Naturally we love  One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Oil ($58)and the new Gardenia Body Serum ($39).

4. Spend less time blow-drying and embrace fun accessories, braids, and hats. Both Forever21 and H&M overfloweth with cute and affordable hats, wraps, turbands and headbands.

5. Stay hydrated, especially when in the sun or at an outdoor event. If you struggle to get in enough water, try flavoring it with watermelon, pineapple, mint, basil, berries or citrus fruits!

6. Take advantage of the season’s locally grown fresh vegetables and fruits. They’re good for your glow! Locate your nearest farmer’s market and stock up on your weekly produce there to not only help your diet, but help you glow from the inside out!


P.S. We never get tired of a maxi dress or this orange + pink combo!
