3 summer beauty products you need
As the weather warms up and you bring out your summer clothes, it’s time to shift out your beauty products, too.
Summer style is lighter — but you also have to take extra diligence to protect your skin and hair from the sun.
Here are some of our favorite products to add to your summer beauty regimen.
1. For your face:
The Clarins Paris Baume Beaute’ Eclair at Ulta.com is a one-hit wonder. This lightweight “beauty flash balm” does it all. It brightens, moisturizes and smooths the skin, great for those long days outside that can leave your face feeling tight and dry. You can even wear it as a makeup primer, underneath your regular products, to extend length and assure the best application possible. It’s light enough that you can even gently brush it on top of your makeup for a quick pick-me-up that won’t get greasy or feel heavy. Clarins Paris Beauty Flash Balm, $47 (plus Cash Back), Macys.com,
2. For your hair:
Ulta’s Revitalize Your Hair box set is the perfect way to pamper and fix your hair for summer. The package includes a Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek shampoo and conditioner, a hair serum, rose and apricot hair milk, a pre-shampoo treatment and the Pureology Colour Fanatic Instant Conditioning Whipped Cream (our favorite product in here). You won’t believe this full kit is only $9.99. Ulta Revitalize Your Hair, $9.99 (plus Cash Back), Ulta.com
3. For your skin:
It’s a no-brainer that you need a good sunscreen for summer. But the challenge lies in picking the best one. We love Clinique’s Broad Spectrum face cream with SPF 50, which uses “SolarSmart” technology to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. As a bonus, this cream is designed to also help repair signs of aging — so you can protect your skin while treating it, too. This product is oil-free and works well for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Face Cream, $21.50 (plus Cash Back), Clinique.com
