Beauty Picks to Restore Your Skin After a Long, Hot Summer
Summer is a beautiful season for so many reasons. But, there are some aspects of this sun-filled time that aren’t always so good for you. Afternoons spent at the park and vacations filled with plenty of time in the sand may have left you sun-kissed and glowing. But as you enter the final days of summer, you’re left with some problems. Days spent in the sun wreaked major havoc on your skin and hair, leaving you with dry skin and hair that’s spent too much time in the chlorine. Luckily Hope for Women has rounded up some beauty items that will revitalize dull skin, give your hair the nourishment it craves, and send you glowing right into fall.
Nivea Express Hydration Freshening Gel ($8, drugstores) – Run to the nearest drugstore and grab a bottle of this stuff! It soothes and cools skin beautifully with mint extract. Its gel formula absorbs quickly and leaves no residue. Your skin will feel silky smooth, and you’ll smell amazing—a win-win!
Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum ($38, Sephora) – This blend of all-natural, fruit-scented oils gets right down to business by repairing fried summer tresses. Taking time out to repair your hair with this serum will pay off all through the fall and turn frizz into smooth perfection.
Ulta’s Renew Advanced Restorative Eye Cream ($15, Ulta) – If you’ve spent much time in the sun these past few months, you definitely need to pay some extra attention to the sensitive area around your eyes. This cream increases moisture and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all while preventing future dehydration.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask ($26, Sephora) – While you may have been diligent to applying SPF to your arms and legs, you most likely forgot to protect your lips with little more than traditional lip balm. This Bite Beauty gem allows you to apply the mask and move on with your life—no need to wipe! Use it throughout the day as a stronger lip balm, and you’ll feel a big difference in your lips in just a week.
Lush’s Stepping Stone Foot Scrub ($4.50, LUSH) – Wearing sandals and flip flops or opting to go barefoot for days on end results in tired, rough feet. Use this brilliant foot scrub once a week in the shower to bring your feet back to looking and feeling like you just spent a week at the spa!
