Summer is upon us, and I have been swapping out lots of my beauty and skincare products to be summer ready. It has been quite a bit since I rounded up my beauty favorites, so I decided to highlight some of my beauty must haves from my most recent orders below!
Amazon Summer Beauty Must Haves
It always amazes me how quickly my skin goes from dry to oily when we transition from winter to summer here in Minnesota. I love this dead sea mud mask for drawing out impurities in the skin, tightening pores, and clearing out blackheads.
To use, simply apply a thick layer to your face and neck. Allow it to dry for five minutes, and then rub it in circular motions before rinsing for extra exfoliation. Remove with warm water and you are good to go!
My love for these self tanning drops runs deep. They are available in light, medium, and dark. I always get the dark drops-the color is not too much and I can get by with using less. This helps the bottle to go a bit further. To use, simply mix 2-3 drops in with your face moisturizer and apply as normal. By the end of the day you will have a gorgeous glow! They also work great mixed into body lotion for all over color.
If you deal with flat, fine hair, I am telling you right now to RUN and grab this thickening spray. Not only does it help hair look and feel more full, but it also adds volume and texture without feeling sticky. This is one of my favorite hair products I have ever used.
More than just a summer favorite, I use this plumping lip polish year round. It comes in tons of different shades, but my favorite is Tonya. It plumps your lips, has a cooling effect, and leaves your lips hydrated. It also stays on forever!
Another year round lip favorite is this lip sleep mask. I struggle with my lips drying out from certain glosses, but this stuff works wonders. I keep it on my nightstand and it is the last thing I apply before going to bed! It comes in lots of different flavors, too!
With the humid weather comes more clogged pores, and I recently discovered these Dots for Spots. They are small clear patches that dry out blemishes and protect them from further dirt and pollutants. I have used these on my face for breakouts and have also had them come in handy for pesky body blemishes!
Between sun screen, extra oil production, and makeup, I always find I have a LOT of dry and dead skin on my face during the summer months. This gel peel is absolutely incredible for sloughing off SO much dead skin. It is called a peel, but it goes on like a cleanser. You simply rub it in circular motions and you will be shocked at home much skin it removes.
This tool is another find that is amazing for getting rid of dead skin, but on your feet! I picked up this callus remover over the winter and it quickly became my best selling beauty product of all time. You use it on dry skin and it removes those difficult calluses and dry patches with ease.
Clearly the name of the game this time of year is exfoliation 🙂 I have struggled for years with an extremely flaky scalp. It has been a huge source of frustration for me. I like to use products that are more clean, but avoiding all of the harsh chemicals has meant no cure for my dandruff. Out of desperation I finally splurged on this scalp scrub shampoo. Let me tell you-it is worth every single penny! It lathers like a shampoo and is so easy to use. Since it is a bit pricy, I tend to focus on my problematic areas around my hairline, and then rinse and use regular shampoo on the rest of my head. I have had so much positive feedback on this stuff-it truly is amazing!
I would love to know if you have used any of these products, and what any of your other beauty must haves for summer are! Feel free to leave a comment below!
