2. gloMineralsgloBronze - Sunkiss
Don't compromise the beauty and health of your skin with the scorching sun. Unlike the unforgiving rays of the sun, glomineralsgloBronze - Sunkiss nourishes your delicate skin with Green Tea and Vitamin C while providing you with a gorgeous, natural looking tan. Bronzing skin the healthy way is always in season. Sunkiss is for light to medium complexions, or for those who wish to create or enhance a light tan.

3. Colorescience Pro Sunforgettable SPF 50 Powder Brush - Tan
This lightweight mineral powder doesn't feel heavy as it blocks UVA and UVB rays with micronized titanium dioxide. The Sunforgettable SPF 50 Powder Brush is easy to carry and easy to apply, thanks to the self-dispensing brush that makes re-application throughout the day simple. I personally love this product and carry one in my purse constantly. I even use it on my daughter when we end up out and about unexpectedly.

4. Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50
Love the moisturizer you're already using? Then there's no need to switch... just mix a little or a lot of sunscreen protection right into your moisturizer or foundation. Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 is a broad spectrum sunscreen with added anti-aging antioxidants that can be applied alone or added to your favorite products. This product is perfect for those who can't commit to a regular sunscreen, but are already seeing the damaging effects of the sun such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and uneven skin tone. Botanical extracts of Grape Seed and Green Tea soothe and help defend against free radicals that cause premature aging. In addition, Vitamin C and E improve skin smoothness and softness. This is one incredible product!

Best Products for Hair - Summer 2012


5. Kusco-Murphy Beach Hair
Kusco-Murphy Beach Hair is the next best thing to a day at the beach! Beach Hair gives you that tousled, textured, bed-head look so many of us try to achieve. The product allows you to separate and define curls AND gives body and texture to straight hair. Created by Kevin Murphy for a Sports Illustrated cover shoot, this product will give you model-sexy beach hair.

6. PhytoPlage Protective Beach Spray
A protective moisturizing spray for restoring the skin after going to the beach or pool or simply spending a day out in the sun. PhytoPlage Protective Beach Spray acts as a guard for the hair AND skin, protecting against the adverse effects of the sun, salt, wind and chlorine. Infused with sunflower extract, olive wax, calendula and rosemary extracts, it prevents oxidation and keeps skin soft, supple and youthful.

Summer Skin Essentials


7. Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System - Mango
Mia 2 is an extension of our popular Mia family that gives you all the benefits of sonic cleansing in a compact, easy-to-use style. Mia 2 features two speeds, a one-minute pulsing T-Timer and a protective travel case for on-the-go sonic cleansing. Now you have more choices for beautiful skin.
Traditional methods of cleansing will never get your skin as clean as you would prefer. Fortunately, the lead inventor of Sonicare discovered a breakthrough in how we cleanse. Using Sonic Technology, Clarisonic's patented micro-massage motion works within skin's natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind- leaving skin softer, smoother and more beautiful. There's a reason why so many celebrities have fallen in love with this product...and so have I!

8. Body Buddy- Walnut The award-winning lotion applicator "band" provides the extra reach we all need to apply skincare products to one's own back and any other hard-to-reach area. Use the non-absorbent lotion applicator to apply sunscreen, apply aloe to soothe sunburned skin, or even apply sunless tanner effortlessly to your back. Unlike a sponge on a stick, it will not absorb product and has no replacement parts or pads. My favorite aspect is that it is machine washable so you can use it with several different products and repeatedly over and over again.

9. Xen-Tan E! Live from the Red Carpet Perfect Blend
This product is a shimmer bronzer, plus self-tan for face and body!
Control the depth of your tan with the twist of a dial every time you apply. The realistic olive undertone works well with all skin tones to give a natural bronze instead of the orange color that so many of us have experience and try to avoid. It also includes a Skin Firming Complex for a smooth, toned feel & appearance. The New Scent Secure ingredient locks out self-tan odor for a delicious scent while tanning....finally!

10. Relax & Wax Get the Bump Outta Here!
Get the Bump Outta Here is a treatment for ingrown hairs, and it helps with bumps as well. Formulated for sensitive skin, it is highly effective, yet gentle on the skin. This product does not burn or irritate your skin and provides soothing and cooling relief. It helps prevent ingrown hair(s), wax and razor rash, skin irritation, and bumping associated with hair removal (i.e., waxing, tweezing, shaving, sugaring, and electrolysis). It's packaged as an easy-to-use 4 oz. roll on so it won't end up on your hands, in your eyes, or somewhere else you don't want it to be.... AND it can't spill. Since there is no waste, it will also last about twice as long.
