During the summer my philosophy on skin care is that, less is truly better. For summer put away heavy foundations and switch to a tinted moisturizer for a shear light finish. Laura Mercier’s new Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact is great as it allows skin to breath while offering moisture, light coverage and SPF protection all in one.
GET YOUR GLOW ON
No time to tan, no worries. Instantly give your face a sun kissed glow with a dusting of bronzing blush. For more coverage illuminate skin with our picks for the season’s best bronzing sprays and self tanners for a brilliant, streak free, and satiny finish. For added anti-aging benefits for the skin try Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads ($18). These 3-in-1 self tanning pads will not only allow you to self tan on the go, but they offer the amazing exfoliating power of alpha and beta hydroxy and the skin smoothing properties of vitamin D.
T-Zone a little shiny? Blot excess oil and shine away with tea tree oil infused facial blotting papers from the Body Shop. These papers help smooth skin blemishes while controlling oil. For a natural matte finish that will hold up through a summer day, set makeup with Iman’s perfect response oil blotting pressed powder.
Sea salt, chlorine, and sun exposure can wreck havoc on the hair. Leaving hair dry, brittle, and discolored. To maintain healthy locks through the season don’t forget a little protection for the hair. Chlorine loves to absorb into dry hair. To create a buffer between your hair and chlorine before swimming, wet hair with fresh water and apply a moisture rich conditioner from roots to ends. For the best protection use Kérastase Soleil Aqua-Seal, $37 which creates a waterproof shield against UV rays and water aggressors. Glamour meets sun care for hair with Kérastase Huile Celeste Shimmering Protective Mist $39. Gold micro particles deliver a luminous almost glittery shine, essential oils nourish hair and provide UVA and UVB protection. What more could a girl ask for!
