Summer beauty is all about a fresh face, that sun-kissed glow, and an effortless, easy look. Here are my beauty-musts to feel that summer glow from head to toe!


Don’t skip straight to skincare – your hair plays a huge part in your beauty routine. After a long, dry winter it’s all about getting the shine back for the summer (not to mention keeping your hair healthy between dips in the chlorine pool water or the harsh saltwater ocean). Keep it simple with – it has 3x the antioxidants so it’s all about getting that healthy shine. Head out for the day with a messy bun or add some beach waves for date night.

Your smile is another feature you might forget about, but nothing complements your tan better than a white smile. I’ve been using the and forever (like since high school!) – honestly makes such a difference! (Costco is running a deal on $12 off now through June 16!) Just add your favorite summer lip gloss or a moisturizing lip balm. I love this natural Bare Minerals gloss.

In one word – hydrate!! It’s so important to drink lots of water during the summer and when you are out in the sun, but hydration doesn’t end there. Keep your skin moisturized during the summer as well – not only will it help plump, firm, and correct fine lines, it can also help extend your tan. I love the texture of the – you’ve seen it on my blog a lot! I use it as a base before adding a tinted moisturizer or a lightweight foundation with your favorite bronzer (loving this one) and highlighter. You should also apply to your neck and décolleté as well – the same goes for any skincare products you use for your face!

Costco has tons of tried and true beauty brands so you can find everything you need to streamline your summer beauty routine in one place. What are some of your favorites?
