It's been ? hot ? around most of the country recently but today marks the summer solstice AKA the longest day of the year AKA the first official day of summer. Spring cleaning can be a drag but revamping your routine for summer is way more fun. It's the perfect time to spruce up your home, your wardrobe, and your beauty routine.
Heavy makeup is persona non grata during those blazing summer months and the key to going makeup-free is to make sure your skincare is on point. Kaia Gerber is a big fan of Dermaflash, *the* it product of the season that you've been seeing all over social media.
The device is super simple to use and it effortlessly sloughs off dead skin cells, debris, pollution and peach fuzz. Your sunscreen and serums absorb better and get to work more efficiently and your makeup goes on smoother. Gerber's makeup artist just touted her love for the innovative product this week. Skin like a 16-year-old? Yes, please!
We're obsessed with changing our signature scent every season (if you're not already doing this, you should be.) Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, SZA and Alisha Boe are all fans of Maison Margiela Replica Fragrance Sailing Day. Maison Margiela's line created scents that are pegged to those visceral memories we associate with sense so Sailing Day will take you to the high seas and their Beach Walk will make you feel like the sand is beneath your toes.
Wash and Go
No one enjoys heat treating their hair when it's a thousand degrees out. No. One. Totalee's five-piece essential collection features a nourishing milky shampoo, damage erasing conditioner, a treatment, and different styling products to get your tresses ready with minimal effort. Lee Rittiner, the brand architect of Totalee, did Chrissy Teigen's locks for the Oscars and is a featured hair expert on Khloé Kardashian's "Revenge Body."
Ashley Graham brings us the *one* thing everyone needs to ensure they have a rockin' beach body ... a rockin' swimsuit. Ashley Graham x Swimsuits for All features sexy, trendy and chic styles for every body (because everybody has a beach body) in sizes 4-24. Graham's ad campaign even featured unretouched paparazzi photos of the stunning model in the suits. ?
Fresh flowers scream warm weather but they die quickly and between beach days and mugs of frozé, who has the time to keep replacing them?
Chrissy Teigen, Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, K****im Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are just a few of the A-listers who have roses by La Fleur Bouquets decorating their homes. They're basically like everlasting roses from "Beauty and the Beast." La Fleur uses a preservation process that keeps the real roses fresh and alive for a year. They come in 25 custom shades like unicorn, metallic, black and classic red or pink.
Beachy waves are one of the most coveted summer looks from the sand to the cocktail party. To get hair like an A-list mermaid, we love the texturizing spray Beach Wave by Miriam Quevedo. It's formulated with Mediterranean Sea Foam, rich caviar, and rice protein (which actually sounds like what Gwyneth Paltrow eats on vacation.)
