I don't know about you, but sitting on the beach, I'm inclined to be listening to a random collection of Keith Urban songs and flipping through magazines until the sun goes down. I know, I know, what you're thinking, she's an esthetician. Yes, I am... But no one's judging, right?! We've all got our thing in life. Where we bend the rules a bit and run like the wind...? I say go for it. BUT BE SMART!!! The sun is no fair player. If you're anything like me, you'll need a few trusty products to help pull you through a day in the sun without the negative effects of it on your face! Here are some of my summer sun faves! Products that'll give you a glow and a good head start to staying hot on the beach, while sweating it out! 

  1. Wunderbrow- I discovered it a while back and it makes all the difference in the world! When it comes to being blonde, I can attest to eyebrows making a big difference on your face! I immediately look 14 when I'm not wearing it. This one is in place for the long haul! !2 hour wear. You won't be disappointed, but it takes a little practice.
  2. Kiehl's SPF 50 BB Cream- You can't be out in the summer heat without taking care of your skin, even in the shade. The sun's rays are coming from every angle. And while a little glow feels pretty looking back at you, the effects of the sun on your skin are worse than you think. Be safe and be smart! YOLO. Protect pretty luvs!
  3. NYX soft matte lip cream- I love these because when they're on, they're on! No drying your lips out, no cackey-looking effect. Just a pretty burst of color. One that will last and last even in the summer heat! And to me, you can't throw on a fun swimsuit without a fun pop of color. It just ain't right! It's like wearing your favorite cocktail dress with flip flops. 
  4. Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara- this is the one I use at the beach and on the brides! And not because it's cheap... because it's amazing! The way it separates your lashes & stays on through the crashing of waves, COME ON!! It's a win-win. 

So as you hit the beach and get those toes in the sand, don't forget to grab your favorite waterproof products to keep that fresh beachy look from sun up to happy hour!
