It might seem like the holidays is a distant memory now and many of you are already looking forward to catching some rays. While restrictions are still in place for some parts of Australia, most people are excited to get out and enjoy the season. While observing minimum health protocols are important, you should not let this get in the way of you looking your best for summer to enjoy the fun you had planned. Make the most of what’s left of summer with these beauty essentials that will give you radiant skin and summer hair that will have heads turning.
Summer Hair Essentials
The ultimate summer hair look is the beachy wave. While they look effortless, you need the right products to help you achieve that effortless summer hairstyle.
Thankfully, you can hack your way to that gorgeous summer hair with the wavy and salty hair styling sprays that we have available on the website. The salty hair styling spray will help you achieve that beachy look any time of the year, not just during summer.
What do we recommend to achieve that wavy, summer hair? First on the list is the O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray. This styling spray delivers that effortless, sexy tousled look without drying out your hair or dumping sand in the shower.
Another excellent styling product is the Evo Salty Dog Cocktail Beach Spray. This product is what you need to achieve that beach based texture of a day on the sands. Meanwhile, there’s the Label M Sea Salt Spray. This edgy matte finish styling spray contains sea salt and other natural ingredients to create that tousled, beachy look.
Aside from styling your hair to achieve that gorgeous, tousled look, it is also important to take good care of your summer hair. Your strands are exposed to harsh elements such as the sun and water (from pool or the ocean). It can cause your strands to become really dry and dull. Therefore, proper hair care treatment is your ticket to hair salvation!
Give your hair some extra care with the Alfaparf Precious Nature Curly & Wavy Hair Mask. This is a lightweight and nourishing treatment that tames your frizz and makes it easy to detangle your strands. As with any Alfaparf products, it is free from parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes so it is extra nourishing.
If you want to reverse dry and brittle hair, the Olaplex Take Home Bond Smoother Kit is here to rescue! This limited edition pack will help restore internal strength and moisture levels to add incredible shine and manageability.
When it comes to hair treatment, there is one name you can trust – Moroccanoil. The Moroccanoil Original Treatment Hydration Pack is designed to cleanse and condition whilst adding moisture back into the hair. For blondes or grey-haired gals who want to give their colour a boost, make sure to stock up on the Kevin.Murphy Blonde.Angel.
Summer Body & Skin
Summer is also the perfect season to up your skincare game. If not given proper care and attention, there are several skincare concerns that could arise. Thankfully, these summer skin problems can be easily prevented with a skincare regime that incorporates the best products for the season.
To start, keep your skin glowing this summer with body oils. The Mermaid Oil from Salt by Hendrix is the perfect summer oil that you can use to lock in moisture to your skin while also strengthening it against environmental damage.
Another excellent oil you can use during the summer is also from Salt By Hendrix – Babetown Booster Base. This face oil is derived from 100% olives to create a non-irritating formula. It is ideal for those who want their skin to be extra hydrating and nourishing but without all the fluff.
In addition to keeping your skin hydrated and glowing, SPF is another skincare essential in the summer. Make sure to incorporate products with SPF into your daily summer skincare routine to protect your skin from premature ageing.
You can slather the Fragrance Free Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 from Bondi Sands before stepping out in the sun. This four-hour water resistant formula offers a non-greasy finish with deep hydration benefits so you can enjoy a sun-soaked day. You can also pack the Hydra UV Protect Face Lotion from Bondi Sands so you can keep your facial skin bright, even, and protected from the sun.
Combining the benefits of broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 50+ protection, the Aspect Sun CC Cream SPF 50+ offers more than just sun protection, it also offers a colour correcting tint so you can achieve an even skin tone.
If you are simply looking for a reliable SPF product to use throughout summer, you can rely on asap Moisturising Daily Defence SPF50. It contains zinc oxide, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause premature skin ageing.
Fake It With a Fake Tan
The use of sunscreen and sun protection is something that we cannot advocate deeply enough. If you want to achieve that gorgeous tan, there is a safer way to do it – fake self-tan.
We don’t mean you should get into those harmful tanning beds – a fake tan product is a safe and effective way to get that bronzed glow to your skin. You can start that with the Loving Tan Deluxe Face Tan. This is one of our most sought after products – and for good reasons. This product will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and supple with the perfect sun-kissed glow. For the rest of your body, you can use the Loving Tan Bronze Shimmer Cream.
If you want to take your fake tanning to the next level this summer, you have to try the Bondi Sands Aero Aerated Self Tanning Foam. This ultra lightweight aerosol foam will leave your skin with a deep, long lasting, bronzed glow.
But if you want to get that gorgeous bronze using the organic way, choose the Peggy Sue Protective Body Bronzer. This is an organic 3 in 1 product that was created to give your skin some serious lovin’. It is your moisturiser, SPF, and tanning product in one. What is there not to love?
Looking your best during summer time is easy! Whether you want the head-turning summer hair, a bronzed glow, or protection for your skin, you know what you need to have the most beautiful you this summer!
