Summer is about sunshine and effortless beauty. From top-selling skincare with the latest in SPF protection, to faking a sun-kissed glow with self-tanner, to sexy beach hair without the sand, these simple beauty tips and tricks will keep you looking cool when the weather is hot!
Tip: Take Cover
Your skin needs protection from the sun's harmful rays all year long, but during the summer months it's even more important to protect against sun damage. Wearing sunscreen daily not only helps defend your skin from exposure to daylight, but some sunscreens are loaded with healthy ingredients that shield against environmental drying and irritation as well. Any exposure is overexposure so remember to stay protected with these top picks:
Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Faceblock SPF 25, Fake & Bake SPF 30 Body Lotion, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 15.
Trick: Get Glowing
Blocking out the sun's harmful rays doesn't mean you should stay pale all summer. If you want to have that summer glow without the potential sun damage, take a tip from the celebrities and fake it with a self-tanner. You can get a glamorous glow in just minutes without basking in sun's damaging rays, and everyone will think you've been cruising the Caribbean. Feel free to fake it with these favorites:
Body Drench Quick Tan Sunless Tanning Mist, Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelettes, St. Tropez Instant Tanning System.
