Steamy temps, sweaty skin and humid days await Floridians this summer. It’s no secret that SPF is essential for your summer beauty routine, but this summer, try adding some flavor to your summer beauty routine. With the following products, your beauty will be looking fine and fresh.
a. Imperial Polish – Body Treatment
Get your skin summer ready with this refreshing spa treatment. This body buff exfoliates to eliminate dry cells and will leave your skin hydrated and radiant. This body polish is primarily a treatment for the skin – sort of like a facial for the body and should not be confused with a massage. $75 for one hour. ImperialSalonAndSpa.com
b. Brazil Collection by OPI
Purple may be the Pantone Color of the Year, but the Brazil Collection by OPI is making a bold statement this summer with its vivid hues and sophisticated neutrals. Colors like “Kiss Me I’m Brazilian” (a warm pink) and “Live.Love.Carnaval” (vibrant coral) will have you dreaming of warm sun and sandy beaches. This limited-edition collection includes 12 nail colors. $9 each. Available at Imperial Spa Melbourne or Opi.com.
c. Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Whether your day consists of time at the pool or an afternoon on the boat, protect your skin and hair from the drying effects of sun, salt water, and chlorine. Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray contains SPF 30 and is formulated with organic Indonesian Nyamplung Oil. This dry oil spray will leave your body and hair feeling nourished and beautiful with no greasy after feel. $35. Macy’s or ClarinsUsa.com
d. Kiss My Face – Hot Spots SPF 30
This sunscreen is perfect for those on the go. Cover all the delicate facial areas that need protection from the sun – ears, brow, lips, nose and cheeks. Made with natural and organic ingredients, this sunscreen stick is water-resistant, paraben and gluten free, and has no artificial ingredients. $8.95. Available at Sunseed Food Co-Op Cape Canaveral or KissMyFace.com.
e. Water Proof Mascara
Blinc Mascara is the original tube-technology mascara. It’s invented to form tiny water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes for maximum amplification and hold.
Not only does it add both volume and length, neither water nor pressure alone will remove Blinc; to remove it though, use warm water and gentle pressure. $15. Sephora at JCPenney Merritt Island and/or Melbourne or Sephora.com.
