Summer Beauty Roundup

July 2, 2019

After what seemed like a never-ending winter, summer has finally made its arrival. If you need us, we’ll be spending our days chasing the sun (with UV protection, of course!). That means we’re switching up our beauty routines from heavy creams to lightweight, sun-ready products that help us attain and protect a healthy, beautiful glow all summer long.

Read on for the beauty products and tips the TopKnott editors can’t glow without this summer. (See what we did there?)

Our fun-in-the-sun essentials

By now, we’re well-educated on the obvious benefits of sunscreen. Not all sunscreens are created equal. We’re partial to a few essentials that are getting us through the season of high ray exposure:

Supergoop Sun Soothing Mineral Sunscreen (SPF 40): This lightweight sunscreen makes a daily appearance in our summer beauty rotation. Great for sensitive skin, it uses olive polyphenol to soothe redness and isn’t as irritating on fair skin as other sunscreens. Our favorite part? That we can wear this underneath our makeup without it feeling greasy. We’re chalking this one up to a must-buy. | Available at Supergoop, $16-28.

Fresh’s Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen: When you’re ready to hit the beach, don’t go without protecting every bit of your skin! We love this sunscreen because it works everywhere: face, eye area and lips. The easy-to-use applicator increases its value exponentially. | Available at Fresh, $25.

Shisheido’s Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce (SPF 50+): For the babes that aren’t at the pool to lounge: this ingenious sunscreen only becomes more effective after a dip in the deep end. A plus? Shisheido’s WetForce technology works on sweat, too. If you’re planning an outdoor exercise sesh, we suggest throwing this in the gym bag. | Available at Shisheido, $40.

Supergoop Healthy Glow Sunless Tan: Round out your glow with this moisturizing sunless tan product from Supergoop. Good for all skin types (including sensitive!) this no-streak, easily applied-spray helps to build a gradual tan with noticeable results in two to four hours. | Available at Supergoop, $38.

Summer hair products we can’t live without

Bumble and bumble. Prêt-à-powder Très Invisible Dry Shampoo: We couldn’t get through summer without a little help from dry shampoo and this one takes the crown as our favorite. It sprays on invisible (no powdery, white-haired look here!), has UV filters and takes our hair from limp and dirty, to volumized and nourished. | Available at Bumble and bumble., $15-29.

Bumble and bumble. Anti-Humidity Gel-Oil: The only thing interrupting our summertime bliss is our hair’s reaction to humidity. Combat it easily with this brilliant gel-oil that fights frizz and locks in perfect curls, no matter the dew point. | Available at Bumble and bumble., $30.

Bumble and bumble. Nourishing Dry Shampoo: We’d much rather spend our time outside than washing, drying and styling our hair all summer. The secret to our great-hair-day success? Bumble and bumble.’s Nourishing Dry Shampoo: it keeps our roots looking healthy and our ends looking tamed. Plus, it has UV filters so we avoid the drying effects of the sun. | Available at Bumble and bumble., $14-47.

Bumble and bumble. Style Primer: Keep those beautiful curls refreshed all summer long with this pre-style primer spray that has built-in UV protection. Spending the weekend relaxing, not washing? This product’s got your back! Just spray onto your hair for an instant lift. | Available at Bumble and bumble., $12-28.

Bumble and bumble. Prêt-à-powder Dry Shampoo: ‘Tis the season for dry shampoo, and this powder version from Bumble and bumble. gives our hair extra life long after our last wash. | Available at Bumble and bumble., $13-28.
