It feels like this year has flown by! I can’t believe it’s already August! For those that live in warmer climates – the sun isn’t going away in September. Which means you still might need to snag some Summer beauty products as you spend more time outdoors.

Whether you’re in the backyard, hiking up a mountain, or chilling at the beach – you NEED to protect your skin! This body sunscreen is a good non-greasy choice and this is an excellent facial sunscreen. Don’t let those lips dry out either! Here’s a sunscreen lip balm from a trusted brand.

If you’re walking around town or exploring a new city all day, your makeup might start to get a bit oily. Don’t let the sun bounce off your shiny forehead! Snag some blotting papers! You also might want to opt for a BB cream instead of a full face of heavy foundation. I love this one from the Asian inspired beauty brand, Purlisse.

If you’re hanging poolside or dipping your toes in the ocean – you might want a little waterproof makeup. This sport mascara is a great option to prevent those raccoon eyes! The tip of this waterresistant eyeliner is great for a winged look and it has some serious staying power.

After sun exposure, it’s important to help your skin and hair recover. I own this rose quartz roller and it has great reviews! The cooling effect de-puffs your skin as you apply your serum or moisturizer. You can also use these ice globes to reduce redness and inflammation if you get too much sun exposure (or after a facial treatment, wax, microdermabrasion, etc.). Even Tracy Ellis Ross uses them! Your skin might not be the only thing dried out after time in the sun. Your locks might be a bit thirsty too, so treat them to this hair mask.

If you want a glow without the sun damage, a self tanner is the way to go! Try these facial drops and body drops. You can add them to your everyday moisturizer or serum. I just ordered them online a few days ago and can’t wait to try them out! Before you apply any self tanner, it’s important to exfoliate the day before. I use this one every few weeks.


Hope these products help you stay feeling fresh and looking your best in the heat! Enjoy the rest of your Summer!
