As warm weather approaches, we find ourselves packing our coats and sweaters and swapping them for our shorts, swimsuits and sundresses. But there are always certain beauty products every woman needs on hand when the weather is that hot, and there are other new beauty products that add to our summer swag. So from the old to the new, each one of these 13 products will take your beauty routine to the next level, so make sure you add them to your summer wishlist.
1. Oriflame’s Lip Protection Collection
We often forget that our lips need protection from the sun and salty water just as much as our hair and body do. Our lips are prone to get cracked and dry if we don’t pay enough attention to them. So for soft and plump lips this summer, check out Oriflame’s lip care collection and pick the one that fits you best.
2. Dry Shampoo
When we’re at the beach, we unashamedly wash our hair less than normal because we don’t want to lose the salt-hair effect. And that’s awesome and okay! But we also need to make sure that our hair remains clean and smells fresh. So either go with Batiste’s dry shampoo collection or try Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam.
3. Melt Proof Makeup Product
For those who can’t part with their makeup even in the mornings, you no longer need to fret that the sun will melt your look. With BECCA Mineral SPF Primer, your makeup will remain in place regardless of heat and sweat. It is infused with an oil-free, water-resistant formula that leaves your skin matte as well as protected with SPF 30.
4. Tanning Oil
It’s spring break and everyone wants to have that beautiful Beyonce tanned complexion. But we also don’t want to be burning ourselves by sitting in Egypt’s scorching sun all day long without any sort of protection, and this is where Banana Boat Tanning Oil comes in handy. It is our go-to for achieving that amazing tanned look while maintaining our healthy looking radiant skin.
5. Foot Comfort
While you’re on the beach, you put your feet through a lot. They suffer through the sand, rocks and salty water and you often forget to treat them after a long day of distress. Oriflame offer you a range of feet pampering products that will guarantee that your feet are never cracked and always soft and taken care of.
6. Sun Protection
Beach means sun and as we all know, sun and sun protection must go hand in hand. We all dream of glowing skin at the age of 40, and the only way to be 40 and fabulous is to be 20 and careful. Opt for Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50, as it’s fluid-like, dries in seconds and forms an untraceable matte finish.
7. Iridescent Body Scrub
The Australian brand, Frank Body just launched a new 3-in-1 product made from coffee, sugar and salt. This new body scrub everyone’s raving about is complete with gold and silver dust. Use it in the shower and you’ll find your skin smooth, radiant and with a brilliant iridescent glow. And because it’s infused with Vitamin E and grape seed oil, it’s guaranteed that you’ll be glowing to the night.
8. Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation
A new product from Covergirl is a full-coverage formula that is oil free and loaded with SPF 20. But despite that fact, it doesn’t smell like sunscreen at all. It also comes in 14 shades and is made with Vitamins E, B3 and B5 to keep your skin hydrated.
9. Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner
On sunny mornings and long summer nights, you are bound to catch a lot of bacteria so this nourishing formula is gentle on the skin and will remove any traces of makeup, dirt and oil, and the cherry on top is that it does all of that while smelling like a floral bouquet.
10. Cutex BB Nail Concealer
During summer, you try your best to hide your nails if they are in shambles but you also know that you should be coddling them with treatment products instead of just polishing them with a pretty color on top! So this nail BB is infused with polymer to smooth the surface and prevent peeling while giving your nails a sheer nude tint that makes them look clean and healthy.
11. Clairol Professionals Flare Me Hair Color
Flare Me Hair Color is a semi-permanent rainbow dye that leaves strands of your hair stained in your choice of seven fun colors for up to five weeks. The lighter shades fade away after just a few shampoos and each tube comes with a clear mix-in that allows you to change intense shades to delicate pastels.
12. Zero-Effort Self-Tanner
For you super white girls who have a hard time at the beach getting tanned, this one’s for you! Rub this moisturizing self-tanner on your wet skin while you’re in the shower for a few consecutive days and you’ll start to see that your skin looks sun-kissed! Ta-da, you’re welcome.
13. James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm
It looks — and smells — just like standard solidified coconut oil in the jar, but when applied to skin, it adds a gradual, natural glow (and serious hydration).
