For the northern hemisphere girls summer is halfway over. You’ve no doubt got a little color to your skin, you’ve got that fresh faced glow happening, maybe you’re coming home from a vacation, maybe you’re getting ready to go on one.
Here are 10 Things A Girl’s Gotta Have For Summer
Don’t use your regular sunscreen – it will break your skin out.
Instead select a non greasy, non pore clogging Facial SPF with
a protection factor of at least 30. I use 85 and 100.
Add Some Shine To Your Hair
Chlorine, salt water, dry air can all leave your locks looking less than lusterous.
Spritzing on a little Bumble and Bumble Shine On
will not only give you some glossiness, but will tame the frizz
and let you have a little definition to the ends.
Skin Rescue Spray
Hot weather can add extra stress to your skin, whether its sunburn (gasp!)
windburn, dry air, humid air, travel – you name it.
Keep a rescue spray on hand, such as skynICELAND‘s amazing Arctic Mist Spray.
It gives your skin instant relief while fortifying it with nutrients.
Liven things up a little with a bold, bright nail color.
Leave the nudes and the dark shades behind – they’ll be back in the fall!
Bright, vibrant nails look fantastic with a summer tan.
You’ve got a gorgeous summer golden complexion (hopefully from a bottle)
now compliment it with a raspberry popsicle kiss.
The blue undertones in raspberry will make your teeth look super white
and your lips look super ripe!

Add A Gold Accent
And I do mean accent.
A soft gold shadow, or a little gold pressed into the inner corner of the eye
can wake the eye up and compliment your tan.
When adding gold to your look choose one area and stick to it.
Big, dark glasses not only look uber chic, but the protect the skin around your eyes
from the sun’s harmful, damaging, aging rays too….
