Semi Permanent Conditioning Hair Color
If you’ve ever thought about experimenting with a bright, bold hair color, summer is the time to go for it. With 18 seriously standout shades like Bali, a bubblegum pink, and Fanta-Sea, an aquatic blue, this collection is your one-stop shop. The formula can last up to eight weeks, but if you want to switch things up sooner, you won’t have to worry about damaging your strands. The semi-permanent dyes contain nourishing and strengthening ingredients including shea butter, mango oil, amino acids, and vitamin B5.
Dip Kit Powder Nail Color System
One reason we *love* dip powder nails: No UV lamp is required. Add that the color lasts longer and is more durable than gel and we say it’s the ideal manicure scratch for summer (goodbye, post-beach day chipped nails). Regardless of your manicure skills, this kit makes it easy with a primer, gel activator, and two shades, including a bright, shimmery pink that we’ll be wearing all season.
Humidity be damned, you can achieve a sleek blowout in the summer. Reach for this four-in-one styler—it dries, curls, waves, and smooths. The ultimate time-saver, you can use it to dry and create a beachy style at the same time.
Sun and saltwater fade hair color, while chlorine can turn it brassy. Blondes can keep hair bright by mixing these toning drops into your fave shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in hair-care products. Add as much or as little as you need, depending on your hair’s tone. Thanks to the vitamin B5 in the formula (and lack of sulfates, silicones, and parabens) the drops also infuse dry strands with much-needed moisture.
Self-tanner is the way to achieve a golden glow any time of year. We’re fans of this formula because it’s buildable — start with a hint of color and work your way up to a full-on faux tan without the fear of a streaky, orange finish. With nourishing and conditioning ingredients like hemp seed oil and a coQ10 complex (an antioxidant), it doubles as a body lotion to leave skin feeling soft.
Treat your strands to this ultra-nourishing hair mask after a dip in the pool, a day at the beach, or whenever your hair feels parched. Thanks to its hero ingredient, vitamin- and fatty acid-rich macadamia seed oil, it conditions, boosts shine, and can strengthen damaged hair. Apply to clean, damp strands from tip to root and let it work its magic for seven minutes before rinsing.
Feels Like New Foot Softener
If you can’t fit in a proper pedicure before stepping into sandal season, slather on this balm. With ingredients like lanolin and beeswax, it works to deeply moisturize and soften calluses and rough, cracked areas so you’ll be ready to ditch the socks.
Sun’s out, skin’s out—which can also mean more frequent hair removal. Whether you opt to shave, sugar, or wax, ingrown hairs are a possibility. With salicylic acid, this liquid helps promote bump-free skin without causing irritation. Apply it with a cotton round three to four days before hair removal. Afterwards, reapply daily or as needed to maintain a smooth finish.
After a day in the sun, spritz on this aloe vera- and honey extract-infused formula. It helps soothe scalp dryness and flakiness. Mist onto hair in sections and use your fingers to work the product into your scalp.
