My Favorite Summer Beauty Products

Although I love the warm weather and long days of summer, I find it challenging beauty-wise. My oily skin starts spinning out of control and my hair gets poofy and frizzy at the slightest hint of humidity – not a good combination!

Here’s a few of the products that help to keep my “issues” under control at this time of year:

My favorite summer beauty products.

  1. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the best. It removes makeup and cleans your skin at the same time. I was really hesitant to try it at first (putting oil on oily skin seems like a recipe for disaster, right?), but my skin has really improved since I started using it.
  2. I also love DHC Eye Bright, which is a miracle eye de-puffer. OK, maybe not a miracle, but it is perfect for those mornings when you didn’t get enough sleep.
  3. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock is my favorite. I am hyper-vigilant about wearing sunscreen every day, and this sunscreen never makes my skin feel greasy. Love it!
  4. I just discovered Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle, which came in my May Birchbox. It’s a great leave-in conditioner that leaves my frizz-prone hair smooth and shiny.
  5. Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray is perfect for those days when I don’t want to wash my hair. The price can’t be beat, and it soaks up excess oil and even has a great scent. Just spray it on your roots, tousle hair with your fingers, and style.
  6. Clean & Clear Instant Oil-Absorbing Sheets are a life-saver. I always keep these on hand and use the sheets throughout the day to keep my oily skin in check.
  7. For natural, glowing cheeks, you can’t beat Benefit Posietint. The sheer pink color is super easy to apply, and it lasts all day. I’m also a huge fan of Benetint.
  8. Maybelline Volum’ Express One by One Mascara is my favorite everyday mascara. It really pumps up my fine lashes but never looks clumpy. It’s great for a natural, daytime look.
  9. When it comes to lips, I love Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Lip Shine. It’s a great non-tacky, yet super-glossy option for lip gloss fans. I love the sheer pink color – it even has a little sparkle!

OK – now it’s your turn! Tell me your favorite products and tips for summer beauty.
