5 Great Summer Beauty Essentials You Should Try This Year

Summer is here, so that means it’s time to restock our beauty baskets. This list is a great compilation of everything you need this summer.

Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum ($34)


Mad Hippie encourages natural beauty and I have to say — I’m a fan! Their Vitamin C Serum promotes healthy skin all summer long. It contains antioxidants and proteins (like vitamin E), which reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is essential to protect against skin damage and support collagen production. If that didn’t already entice you, Vitamin C also brightens your skin tone, perfect for that summer, healthy glow!

Renewed Hope Water Cream: Philosophy ($39)


My favorite brand! Water cream is a light, breathable moisturizer that is — you guessed it! — water-based. Because of this, it allows for fast absorption. The lightness of this moisturizer won’t clog pores or cause breakouts either! Not to mention that the smell of Philosophy products is heavenly!

Heritage Store Rosewater Spray ($11)


The sun will dry out your complexion fast; moisturizing sprays and spritzes are necessary and oh-so-convenient. Post-cleanse, this is the perfect finishing touch. It can be worn over makeup or just on your bare skin. This rosewater spray also gives your skin a little pick-me-up during those hot summer afternoons!

((Also, talk about a bang for your buck!))

St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Face Serum ($30)


St. Tropez is one of the most popular companies all things faux-tan. You can trust that this face serum will work wonders! This summer beauty essential is three-in-one; the serum will moisturize your skin and give it a subtle tan glow, as well as include the necessary vitamins C+ D into your skin-care routine.

Youth To The People Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream ($58)


If you are looking for a serious moisturizer post-quarantine, this is the one for you. After using this heavy-duty non-irritating cream, your skin will be more than ready for socialization!

And the company is all-vegan! Clean beauty for the win!
