Beach Essentials: New Products for Face, Body, Hair and More!
With the warm weather in full force, what better way to cool off than going to the beach. Of course, a trip to the beach is never as simple as throwing a suit and towel into a bag. There's your makeup, your skin and your hair to think of! The wind, sun, and humidity can melt your makeup or give your hair a bad case of the frizzies. That's why we're here! We have a whole whack of fabulous new summer products to help you keep your cool!
For Your Face
With the summer heat, having a face full of layered makeup isn't exactly desirable. Lighten up with BB Creams, or hybrid products that do double duty. Try: #1 L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream (C$16.99, available July 2012), #4 Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup (C$42.00, available August 2012), #5 Covergirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers (C$7.99), #6 Shiseido Makeup Lacquer Rouge (C$30.00, available October 2012).
A day at the beach can be rough on your makeup. Try waterproof or long lasting options that promise to keep you looking your best, no matter what the weather. Try: #2 Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour (C$36.18), #3 Covergirl Lineblast 24HR Liquid Eyeliner (C$10.99), #7 Clinique Lash Power Mascara (C$18.00), #8 Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation (US$7.29), #9 Tarte Amazonian Clay 12Hr Blush (C$ 33.00).
For Your Hair and Body
Before stepping out to the beach, get your skin its softest with: #2 Rocky Mountain Organic Sugar Scrub (C$21.00) and #1 Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion (C$10.99) which also contains a gradual sunless tanner! Once you're at the beach, don't skimp on the sun protection. We suggest bringing #8 RoC Soleil Protexion Invisible Touch SPF 30 Atomizer Spray (C$24.00) with you.
If hummidity reeks havoc on your hair, try some soothing hair care stylers.
