EZ Beauty: Summer Essentials
Summer’s here and the livin’ is easy – and who wants to be bogged down with a complicated beauty routine (actually, when do we ever want that?). These easy, breezy products will keep you looking and feeling your best this season and all year long.
Fresh Sugar Lip Shines
This delicious collection is pure moisturizing bliss for the lips. Long-lasting, high-shine lip treatments come in three new colours including Sugar Tulip, Nude and, my personal favourite, Berry Shine. Wear alone or over any lipstick for supple, youthful looking lips.
Every day is a beach day with this sea salt spray from NYC stylist Jeff Chastian. Getting a soft, tousled look couldn’t be easier: simply spray on damp hair and scrunch with your fingers. Let air dry or diffuse with a hair dryer. For added volume, finish with Jeff Chastain’s Reworkable Hold Paste.
Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray; $27 CDN
Reworkable Hold Paste; $27 CDN
Created from natural botanical extracts and oils, these skincare products are formulated to calm distressed skin and combat signs of aging. Try the Eye + Face Makeup Remover which cleanses the face with one simple step – no water, no rinse, no fuss.
Perfect for road trips or a leisurely day at the beach with the kids and grandkids, this collection of plant-derived healing ointments from Canadian company Therawise is a healthier option for dealing with cuts, burns, bug bites, heat and diaper rash or other bothersome ailments. And if you get hit by a dreaded summer cold try the Natural Bio-Active Vaporizing Rub (think a gentler version of Vick’s VapoRub.)
Racinne Anti-Aging Mask
It only takes a few minutes to feel like you’ve spent an afternoon at the spa. To give your skin a boost, start with the Korean Anti-Aging “Botox in a tube” mask from Racinne, and then pile on more pampering with the Lady-S 5 in 1 Home Spa Device to stimulate collagen production, tone and firm skin and help with product absorption.
