Be A Summer Beauty Expert, Part 2

As I mentioned yesterday, the June edition of Women's Health magazine is chock-full of hints on how to become a summer beauty expert this season. Here are some more hints from the mag:

Beating the Sun Head-to-Toe
  • Scalp: Anyone who knows the agony of a fried hair part will appreciate the nongreasy Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation SPF 35. Swipe the sheer protection anywhere you tend to neglect. $24, macys.com
  • Lips: Since lips don't contain much melanin, they're super-vulnerable to sun damage. That's why we love Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15. It's like Ray-Bans for your mouth.$14, clinique.com
  • Chest: The coolest solution to a soggy bra: a thin layer of DriOff gel. It'll stop sweat so those puppies stay high and dry. $23 for two 1.32 oz tubes, hillderm.com
  • Legs: When the sun and wind suck your skin dry, replenish it with Olay Body Quench Mousse, a moisturizer in foam form packed with hydrating glycerin and antioxidant-rich green tea. $8 for 7.1 oz, drugstore.com
  • Face: No more makeup cakeup! The Body Shop Flawless Skin Protecting Foundation has a nearly invisible cream-to-powder formula plus the benefit of SPF 25. $25, thebodyshop.com
  • Shoulders: Looking a little pink? We won't say "I told you so" (even though we sort of just did). Kiss My Face After Sun Aloe Soother contains cooling aloe gel to stop the sting. $6 for 4 oz, kissmyface.com
  • Feet: The downside to spending a day in flip-flops: the grime that gets on your soles. Wipe away the nastiness with Earth Therapeutics Clean + Cool Foot Wipes. $6 for 15 wipes, earththerapeutics.com
  • Heels: Make sure strappy sandals don't rub your feet the wrong way: Dr. Scholl's for Her Miracle Shield balm prevents friction that causes blisters. $6, drugstore.com
