In the summer, my beauty routine lightens up and becomes a bit more simple. For me, summer means staying cool and keeping things fun and easy. It's time for more color, less product, and tricks for looking great despite the heat and the harsh glare of the sun.
Here are a couple new products I found to keep things cool...
FOR YOUR FEET
Summer is the time to bust out flipflops, sandals, and cute strappy heels. It means ditching socks and stockings, but it also means sweaty, possibly stinky shoes. That's why Silver Linings are so awesome. They're super thin liners featuring silver technology that helps to eliminate bacterial odor in shoes worn without socks. They're great for flats without socks! You can get Silver Linings for $15.99 for a set of three from Amazon.com or silverliningsnewyork.com; each pair lasts up to a month.
While you should wear a lip balm with SPF when you're out in the sun (no matter what time of the year it is!), it's also fun to have lip balms in fruity flavors to mix things up during the summer. I really like eos lip balms. (Their mint flavored balms are super refreshing!) They come in cute egg-shaped packaging, slide on easily, and keep my lips feeling moisturized but not coated in a heavy, sticky mess. Check out their summer offerings in passion fruit or strawberry sorbet. They're yummy and feel great and they're certified organic and 100% natural to boot. eos 2011 Lip Balm Smooth Sphere Summer Pack retails for $5.99 at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target.com and EvolutionofSmooth.com. Perfect for summer!
