Don't sweat it
Sweat beads and underarm stains don't have to be a part of your summer vacation. When the mercury soars, keep your body temperature down and sweat at bay without irriating skin with with a long-lasting deodorant.
Try this: Clean Deodorant ($18), an aluminum-free product made without parabens, sulphates and other ingrediants that can irritate skin. Plus the time-release formula will keep you fresher, longer.
Clean, soft skin is sexy summer skin. Leave yours feeling beach-ready and baby smooth with a moisturizing body wash. Look for a clean-rinse formula to ensure that it will be light on your skin with no heavy residue.
Slough away dead skin
You still need to exfoliate skin in the summer months, especially your face. After a long day at the beach and a night strolling the boardwalk, you'll need something that can remove all the dirt, oil and make-up that's collected on your skin. Exfoliation also ensures skin is even-textured and smooth.
Keep it light
A great face of makeup that stays put in the midday sun starts with the right base that will also leave skin feeling light. Instead of heavy foundation, opt for a tinted moisturizer, which will even out skin tone and give skin a healthy glow without feeling like a mask.
Try this: Becca Luminous Skin Colour ($42), a combination tinted moisturizer and sheer foundation packed with antioxidants and other good-for-skin ingredients.
You want makeup that will stay on through sweat and wetness. When it comes to mascara, you need something smudge and smear-resistant for long-wearing summer beauty.
