Getting and keeping that perfect summer glow doesn't mean you have to sit out in the sun and risk damaging your skin.
Our resident beauty blogger, Milly Almodovar, has some of this summer's hottest beauty trends:
St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan (Medium) $25
The first product ever created to allow you to tan in the shower. You apply this in the shower, leave on for three minutes and then wash off and go. Comes in both light and medium. Transfer resistant. Uses St. Tropez 100% natural DHA with other melanin enhancers to really give your skin a natural looking tan. I actually use this!
Instrumental Beauty Sonic Touch Cleansing System $34.99
As the weather gets warmer, your skin will start getting a lot oilier, and more prone to break outs. It's important that you are thoroughly washing and cleansing your skin. This is travel size. These cleansing systems are super popular now but super expensive. Not this one, and it's just as good. It's dual sided, so if you want a more intense cleaning you use the side with the broader nodes, if you want a gentler exfoliation, you can flip it over. You charge it on your laptop and get like 3 months of use from it with one charge. https://shop.riteaid.com/instrumental-beauty-sonic-touch-cleansing-system-1-count-0364787?gdftrk=gdfV220351_a_7c3008_a_7c5601_a_7c0364787&gclid=CjwKEAjwka67BRCk6a7_h_7Pui8SJABcMkWRuO13JzMKi9HxJC1Q7PtwdJ7jd3nUZ3gMTN-MsCdpBhoC8BXw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
Nubian Heritage Patchouli & Buriti Body Souffle $11.99
Why I love this one: First of all the scent is amazing, but it's super hydrating, and the ingredients are organic, and it's super affordable. Plus Patchoulli is an aphrodisiac and an essential oil in aromatherapy to uplift, and Burriti oil contains Beta Carotine & Vitamin E. Also this contains shea butter. So if you forget to apply lotion the next day, it's got you covered.
John Frieda Frizz Ease 10 Day Tamer Pre shower Treatment $13
You know how bad humidity can get during this time of year. Our hair can get a hot mess. Not when you use this. Just one use of the pre-shower treatment keeps hair smooth, silky and perfectly behaved for up to 10 days. Curl it, straighten it, or add some waves—your hair will be style responsive after just one use. The Tamer uses an exclusive 3D Texture Transforming Technology, penetrating deep into the hair’s fiber to tame each strand from the inside out. The formula’s unique ingredients work at the surface, cuticle and core of hair, creating maximum impact via three unique steps. First, it smoothes the hair’s surface and forms a barrier against humidity, preventing damp air from putting a kink in your style. Next, it creates an additional humidity defense from inside the hair, ensuring long-lasting protection. Finally, it helps soften hair and increase its flexibility, leaving the hair fiber supple and ready for styling.
Me chic Hair Removal System $199.99
The first device that is fda cleared to remove hair on all skintones and it's clinically proven to remove 97% of hair within 7 weeks. Did I mention that it is painless? http://mepower.com/me-chic.html (Visuals) I will actually use this on suki or on myself)
I am seeing so many women with beautiful pedicures but then when I look at the back of their feet, it looks like they've been kicking flour. Not cute! Baby Foot is the revolutionary, all-natural Japanese foot exfoliant. It’s like a glycolic peel, but instead of for your face, it’s for your feet!
Baby Foot is an all-natural, foot care product that will make your feet as smooth and soft as a baby’s foot. Simply slip on a pair of Baby Foot booties (they come pre-filled with the exfoliant) and in one hour, you’re on your way to smooth, soft feet. The unique formula, which includes 17 types of natural extracts, allows your feet to exfoliate naturally, leaving them highly moisturized. This effective and gentle process removes the unwanted dead skin cells that have built up layer after layer. You will peel and peel and peel (between 3-5 days). But when you’re done, your feet will be beautiful…you might not even recognize them. Available at http://www.BabyFoot.com, Target, RICKYS NYC as well as boutiques nationwide.
Too Faced Stretch Mark Liquid Marker Eye Liner $20
Sketch Marker is an advanced liquid eyeliner inspired by Japanese Calligraphy Pens. Its formula acts as an artist’s best drawing ink, created to be exceptionally smooth, vivid, waterproof and ideal for lining eyes. The flexible tip allows you to effortlessly create paintbrush-like strokes for daytime to dramatic cat eyes and everything in between.www.toofaced.com
