Summer Beauty Essentials We Simply Won’t Be Without

Is there a time sweeter than summer? The sun is shining, the breeze is warm, and the days are long. But with that said, summertime also requires you to provide extra protection, hydration, and care for your skin and hair. Here are a few summer beauty products we consider essential.

A Tried-and-True Sunscreen

Our Pick: Neutrogena Invisible Daily Defense Sunscreen Spray ($14.19, shop here)

Going into summer, you must have plenty of SPF on hand to protect your skin from the sun, and this one is our go-to. It’s not just any sunscreen; it’s a clear, quick-drying, and water-resistant shield perfect for any summer plans.

Restorative After-Sun Lotion

Our Pick: Coola Radical Recovery After-Sun Moisturizing Lotion ($32, shop here)

In case of an emergency, such as not reapplying SPF as needed (or, worse, forgetting sunscreen entirely), this lotion can soothe and restore skin after sun exposure.

A Hydrating Serum

Our Pick: Vichy Laboratories Minéral 89 Hyaluronic Face Serum ($29.99, shop here)

Making a hydrating serum part of your skincare routine is a great idea no matter the season, but it’s especially important during the summertime. This one from Vichy Laboratories instantly cools, smooths, and softens dry, damaged skin.


Our Pick: Kopari Aluminum-Free Coconut Deodorant ($18, shop here)

We prefer an effective deodorant that is kind to our skin and the planet. This aluminum-free, plant-based one from Kopari glides on clear and smells like a unique blend of coconut water, coconut oil, and sage oil.

Anti-Chafe Stick

Our Pick: Megababe Thigh Rescue Anti-Friction Stick ($14, shop here)

Chafing is the worst. But we have good news: Those days are long gone with this dermatologist- and gynecologist-approved anti-friction stick. After just one application, you can walk around in the heat without chafing. Plus, it is versatile enough to be used all over your body to protect any other friction-prone areas.

Cutie Claw Clip

Our Pick: Lbaby Leaf Hair Clip ($3.59, shop here)

You never know when you’ll need to throw your hair up on a hot day, so you might as well carry around a cute claw clip to achieve that easy, breezy, carefree look.

Lightweight Dry Shampoo

Our Pick: Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo ($15, shop here)

Dry shampoo is another product we use year-round, but it’s especially important during the summer to use one that is lightweight, adds volume, never feels itchy or heavy, and doesn’t leave a white cast.

Setting Spray

Our Pick: Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Makeup Setting Spray ($36, shop here)

Makeup can become greasy and wear off when it’s hot outside, but with a good setting spray, you can ensure it stays in place all day and night. This one from Urban Decay is known for its long-lasting formula, which keeps your makeup fresh and in place, even in hot and humid conditions.

SPF Lip Balm

Our Pick: Supergoop! Play Lip Balm SPF 30 ($12, shop here)

It’s important to apply SPF everywhere – including your lips. This hydrating lip balm with SPF protects and nourishes. Plus, it’s waterproof and sweatproof.
