We wait all year for the best season of life: summer. It’s when we let our hair down in beachy waves, bask in the sun’s rays, and wonder how we let ourselves go the first time we don a pair of shorts. Never fear, here are a few summer necessities to help you get your glow on safely and naturally.
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-in Conditioner
Short or long hair, we are all mermaids who need some tender loving care. To keep our hair healthy from the sun’s rays, Yarok Feed Your Ends will keep your hair soft, conditioned, never weighing it down, and healthy. If you’re in the water or at the beach frequently, this is a must-have to help avoid breakage and split-ends. It also doubles as a heat protectant should you need to use a curling iron for a summer night out.
Weleda Spray Deodorant
With heat, there’s sweat and bodily aromas. We can make strides to keep such aromas refreshing. There are many forms of all-natural deodorant ranging from sticks to roll-ons. The easiest method are sprays to help you spray-and-go. It won’t stop you from sweating, but it will keep you smelling fresh and clean.
Kiss My Face Sunscreen Lotion with Hydresia SPF 50 & Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen
UVA/UVB rays have been studied and linked to a highly probable chance of skin cancer. It is important to apply SPF correctly and often depending on your activity level (waterproof if you are in the water/sweating). Kiss My Face SPF 50 is an easy, quick lotion-spray application while Juice Beauty is a creamy texture with antioxidants and vitamins doubling as skincare. These are great, all-natural options for those allergic to chemical SPF. Please apply well and frequently to protect your skin!
Zabana Essentials Glow Stick
Let’s talk about keeping our skin looking fresh using as few products as possible. We want our glow to shine through and Zabana’s Glow Stick is one of the easiest products to achieve this glow. For a fresh, natural, luminescent, portable glow, this is your stick. The Glow Stick is all-natural, vegan, gluten-free, and has the most uplifting apricot scent you can only dream of. This will be the “it” beauty item for the summer.
Kani Botanicals Sweet Almond Body Polish
With all the sun and SPF we are slathering on, we must exfoliate our skin to slough off the dead skin and let our natural glow shine through. Kani’s sweet almond body polish is excellent for an all-over exfoliation and great precursor before applying natural bronzing oil. Gentle, soothing, and moisturizing your skin during the summer months is the perfect way to start or end your self-care ritual.
French Girl Organics Bronzing Body Oil
French Girl’s Organic Bronzing Body Oil is the perfect organic and vegan alternative to tanning beds that have been shown to contribute to skin cancer. It’s light, non-greasy, and gives your skin the perfect sun-kissed glow without looking too artificially tanned. The iridescent golden shimmer won’t make you feel like a disco ball, just the summer goddess you truly are.
Bedrock & Bloom Smart Ash- All Natural & Organic Teeth Whitener & Detoxifier
With the long winding days of summer when the sun sets after 9pm, we’ll be spending a lot of time sipping coffee, lounging with tea, and twirling red wine. These beverages, however, may stain your smile. Bedrock & Bloom is the all-natural way to detoxify your smile and get those chompers pearly white again. After a few weeks of usage, you should notice a brighter smile without the mind-numbing sensitivity to your teeth.
