#NoMakeUp Summer Essentials

It’s no secret: It’s piping hot this summer! Your body sticking to your car seat has become a part of your everyday life. With this kind of heat, who wants to deal with a full-blown makeup routine? Say goodbye to your foundation woes and say hello to the #NoMakeUp movement that is taking over the Internet. Singer Alicia Keys is at the forefront of this movement, and she’s doing a pretty great job of keeping us all motivated to take the courageous no-makeup plunge. So it’s time to exchange your time-gobbling makeup routine for these quick and easy solutions.

1. Fresh Sugar Plum Lip Tint SPF 30


With so much to do and so little time, it’s easy to forget that your lips need protection too. As you age, it’s extremely important to keep your lips protected. Lips can get cracked, chapped and sunburnt in this Florida heat. I’m a huge fan of lip products that offer sun protection and color. That’s why Fresh Sugar Plum Lip Tint SPF 15 takes the No. 1 spot on my #NoMakeUp Summer Beauty Bag Essentials list. Fresh Sugar Plum Lip Tint is the perfect sassy addition to your life. Throw on this lip tint on your way out the door for an effortless look!

2. Burt’s Bees White Tea Extract Facial Cleansing Cloths




We’ve all been there. It’s mid-day, and you’re up to your neck with errands and barely keeping your head on straight. Suddenly you look at your face in the mirror and nearly have a heart attack as you think, “Has my face really been this oily all day!?” Constant heat can cause skin to produce more oil, which can cause frequent breakouts. Gently remove dirt and oil throughout the day with these invigorating Burt’s Bees White Tea Extract Facial Cleansing Cloths. The calming cucumber and soothing aloe will leave you feeling refreshed in no time.

3. Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Hold & Shine Spray




In the summertime, I’m pretty much half lion. My hair has a mind of its own, and with my schedule booked full of exciting pastimes, this quick fix product is the perfect solution. Shea Moisture Hold & Shine Spray hydrates hair with nourishing ingredients like coconut, shea butter and even Japanese honeysuckle. Secret Hint: This spray also double-acts as a lovely body spray. I promise you’ll smell like the tastiest coconut cake in town!

4. Aveeno Naturals Daily Moisturizer SPF 30




I can’t say it enough: moisture, moisture and more moisture is the ultimate key for a sexy summer glow. After washing your face, apply Aveeno Naturals Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 to keep your skin protected and hydrated throughout the day. This moisturizer provides long-lasting moisture without an oily residue.

5. Sephora Snag-free Hair Elastics




You’ll definitely need a chic messy bun to go with your fresh-faced look. If you’re anything like me, hair elastics are your own personal version of hell, but these elastics won’t leave you saying “ouch.” They are made with a unique elastic fiber to prevent those painful hair snags.
