“Hot town Summer in the city!” It’s time to get pretty! Summer weather is what we live for all winter long, but once that hot sun starts beating down on us, it’s time to pull ourselves together, hop in the car, put the top down, blast some Beach Boys and head to the mall…because honey, you need a Summer survival kit and you need it now.
Lets start with the most important item for Summer; sun protection lotion. Everyone wants that toasty glow, but do you want it with a nice side of skin cancer? Of course not. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock is what you need if you want to protect against the sun without clogging your pores. It’s water and sweat proof and won’t rub-off. It absorbs quickly to not leave a slimy mess and is also rated No. 1 for sun care by dermatologists. $10.95
However, skin isn’t the only thing you need to protect against the sun. Your hair also needs protection. Frederic Fekkai Summer Hair Sun Bandana is just the solution you’re looking for to protect your gorgeous locks from the sun’s harmful exposure. It hydrates and protects with Solar shield, a sun protective technology exclusively created by Fekkai. $20.00
Moving along, if you have been keeping up with our website, then you already chose the perfect swimsuit and need the perfect cover up to complete the ensemble. Victoria’s Secret’s Cabana Dress comes in six different colors and works with just about any body type. It is a sheer cotton material that allows for a flowy, cool breeze effect that will keep you comfortable for a drink by the pool or a walk on the beach. $24.00
Working our way down, next stop, waxing fun! Nobody wants to expose too much of themselves at the beach, so a little wax never hurt anybody! (yea, right!) Bliss is one of the top spas in New York City and their Poetic Cosmetic Waxing Kit is the very best for do-it yourself waxing. It features low temperature wax and grabs the smallest of fuzz. The wax is colorful for easy application and comes with pre-waxing lotion and shrink wraps to make the convenience of waxing at home even easier! $45.00
And while you’re down there waxing your legs, might as well head to your little piggies and give them a little pizazz as well. Summer is flip-flop season and there is nothing tackier than a girl showing off her toes with absolutely no polish on them! L’oreal’s Bijou Gems Precious Effect Nail Colors come in the brightest shades to allow for extra attention from both onlookers and the sun. They are an intense way to keep yourself in an intense and upbeat mood all Summer long. $0.99
Finally, to complete the look, you need a great pair of flip-flops. We recommend you go with those who truly know all about warm weather. Havaianas is a brand you can trust when it comes to Summer. Made in Brazil, these Havaianas Tops Sandals come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, each more comfortable than the next. $16.00
Summer is meant to be fun, but only if you have what you need to keep up with all that fun! If not, Summer can become a very unpleasant time and nobody wants to be kept indoors when the sun is shining and the beach is calling your name!
