Basic Beauty Tips for Summer
Here are a few tips to save your skin, have no fuss hair, and wear statement nails.
Nourish & restore
Summer skin takes some abuse with extra sun, sweat and loads of sun protection. Facial oil allows for the skin to be un-suffocated while nourishing at the same time. If you spend a fair amount of time in the sun it's best to skip many of your anti aging products as their active ingredients increase sun sensitivity. You are ALWAYS providing anti aging properties by hydrating and using sun protection so focus on that in the summer. Chemical free Velvet Transforming serum is the perfect light weight blend for some non-toxic, overnight repairing.
No tan is a healthy tan unless it's in a bottle. Add some color and glow with sunless tanner. Check out all of our favorite made in the USA sunless tanners and read the expert application tips for a streak free tan in our self-tanning posts.

Using dry shampoo will help you achieve several looks of summer. The product provides volume for the messy and undone do's. It allows more ‘stick' for styling fun braids and – hellllo, it extends your time between washes.
*Tip* spray it on before bed and it will absorb more oils while you snooze.
Retro Nail Color
Playful, bold nail color complements the sunshine. This is a great way to add a pop of color to your style. Essie is one of our favorite made in USA nail polish brands because of its superior shine and its range of colors from classic to trendy.

It won't melt off and you can apply it with your fingertips. Juice Beauty CC Cream is still my go to pick for summer skin that glows.
