Summertime means really great weather and a full social calendar, am I right!? So for this month’s Sona Selects, I’ve curated all my favorite skincare, makeup and hair products for summer. From my go-to sunscreen to keep me sun safe to the best hydrating face mask, keep on reading to see what I’m obsessed with right now!
New season means some new skincare. I use sunscreen every day and I especially love this Clarins SPF 50 for my face because it’s oil free and protects my skin from both UVA/UVB rays (how to layer sunscreen with makeup here). When I’m at the beach or by the pool, I like to use a high SPF sunscreen spray like this one from Sun Bum. It’s easy to use, water resistant and smells great! Another skincare product I’m loving right now is the Mario Badescu facial spray with cucumber and aloe. It’s so refreshing!
I like to keep my face covered when I’m in the sun because sun spots and sun damage are a big NO! So to give me a faux glow, I’ve been using the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads which exfoliate and tan your face at the same time. For my summer night routine, I’ve been using the Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Sleeping Mask. It feels so amazing when you put it on and you’ll wake up with super hydrated skin!
When the heat hits, I keep my makeup routine simple. For a natural-looking base, I’ve been using the YSL Touche Éclat All-in-One Glow tinted moisturizer. It’s light and comfortable for all day wear. Next, I’m into the Wander Beauty Beach Balm, which is a multi-use stick you can use on your lips and cheeks. And of course, my summer makeup routine isn’t complete without the Pérsona Cosmetics Cali Glow Highlighter in Zuma. It’s the best for getting that sun-kissed vacation glow!
And now hair! I have thick, dry hair so I have to give my hair extra attention in the summer. I talked about the Moroccan Oil Smoothing hair mask on the Sona Selects Hair Edition post, but I’m including it again because it’s that good. If you have frizzy hair, then you will love this one. After rinsing, your hair will feel sooo soft! If you’re trying to keep your hair routine heat free, you should definitely try the cult-favorite Ouai Wave Spray for perfect, just-left-the-beach hair.
I don’t know about you guys, but I especially love trying new products in the summer. If you’re the same, please share your new favorites in the comments below!
