Being a summer born baby, I love the beach, BBQs and all the outdoor activities the season has to offer. But, as much as I love summer time, the sometimes unbearable temperatures, and humidity totally alters my basic beauty regiment. As I easily sweat, this doesn’t stop my skin from soaking up moisture and hair being dry from being exposed to the sun. My lips require more care and frequently exposed feet need constant TLC.

I have an arsenal of beauty “go-tos” that I absolutely need to beat the heat and the dog days of summer:

  1. The Hair: I need hydration, and need to control the frizz from the humidity but also don’t want my hair to be greasy and weighted down. For my regular wash and condition, I love TRESemme Split Remedy Split Ends shampoo and conditioner. And to fight the frizzies from humid weather, Phyto 48-hour anti-frizz mask can be used after shampoo or even daily.

  1. The Face: Oily – sweaty – oily – sweaty – oily….that is the typical summer day cycle for me when it comes to my face. For a clean wash, I start with Nuance Salma Hayek Oxygen Activated Foaming Face Wash. As I need to keep the makeup to a minimum, I use a light dusting of my favorite bareMinerals foundation with spf 15 (ALWAYS keep SPF in your regiment ladies!), which I actually tend to use year-round. Finally, to keep the shine away, I keep Sephora collection bamboo charcoal blotting papers on hand

  1. The Body: Shaving, waxing, sunblock, ugh! Summertime brings along a lot more maintenance for my skin and the daily plight to keep soft and glowing for summer. To exfoliate, I use Burt’s bees sugar scrub with Honey & Shea to get my legs and arms silky smooth. To lock in the moisture and finish off with a fresh and clean feel, I use Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh. The Vaseline Total Moisture keeps my skin soft all day and did you know, in a blind survey, 87% of consumers said they would consider switching their existing lotion to Vaseline Total Moisture?* It’s a must for everyone’s summer beauty bag!
