Best American Made Summer Beauty Essentials
Try a natural brand that works. Crystal Body Deodorant comes in a convenient roller ball, it's a no mess application so I love just tossing it in my purse. It's free of toxins and works by using mineral salt. Their scents are light and pleasant, unscented is an option too. The formula is clear, smooth and comfortable. You can re apply in the warm summer months without any clumping or buildup.

Opt for BB or CC cream. CC cream will blend in with your summer complexion without melting off. Most offer multiple benefits in one: light to medium coverage, sun protection, pigment correction and light hydration. The Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream is one of my favorites. So easy to use! For better coverage you can use a brush or sponge but you can keep it simple with your finger tips for this tube.

Instead of a cream cleanser, get a foaming or gel cleanser. All the nourishment of a cream is great but in the summer sun we need to get the extra oils, dirt and sunscreen thoroughly washed away. My selection is Pacifica Sea Foam Face Wash for all skin types. The coconut water base is refreshing. This wash is toxin free and full of antioxidants.
Put away your Moisturizer Sans Sunscreen. Instead get – Moisturizer with SPF 30+. Anything less does not block the chemical response from the sun rays to the melanin, causing sun burns and sun damage at minimum. Sunology offers protection from UV rays while adding moisture to the the skin. It's delicate, non-toxic, reef friendly, cruelty free and water resistant. I love that is TSA friendly, keeping travel easy by packing this multi benefit tube in a simple carry on.

Instead of shave gel, try an oil to add hydration to your legs and create a softer, smoother shave. Thesis Beauty creates Body Oil Rose Garden, a multi tasking oil of all natural and antioxidant ingredients. A little goes a long way for instantly soothed and soft skin. Using their rose oil will leave your legs looking silky and smooth. The scent is perfect for summer and a great compliment to any other favorite scent.

Instead of a Heavy Hair Serum, get a lightweight product that can be spritzed on. You can still keep frizz down without the extra weight for silky summer hair. Try Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. It balances the moisture, tames the frizz and helps create tousled looking waves.
