Summer Essentials

Dear Reader,

Summer is here; finally, we get to drink Starbucks refreshers, hit the beach, and buy over-priced pineapple floaties for Instagram posts! Beauty has always been tricky during the summer, because no one really wants to put anything on; chances are, it WILL melt off. So, throughout the years, I’ve kept a list of the products I use almost every day of the summer. During this time of the year, I like to stick more towards skincare and body products, rather than makeup itself; but, I will list the makeup essentials I swear by for the summer.

Sunscreens, etc.

In order to protect our skin from the sun, we definitely need to stock up on our sunscreen. My all time favorite sunscreen lotion is Tarte’s Tarteguard SPF 30. I used this sunscreen every day when I was in Cancun last year, even though it’s not water/sweat resistant. You can top this sunscreen with another one that is waterproof if you’d like. I’m not much of a swimmer, so this is my everyday go-to. If you are a beach/pool freak though, Sun Bum’s SPF 50 sunscreen spray is the way to go (it’s water resistant for 80 minutes)!
