Summer has officially arrived, and it’s time for some fun in the sun. As you get ready to lounge by the pool and spend time outdoors, you’ll want to treat your skin right and maintain a minimal beauty look. Below, we’ve rounded up our best makeup and skin care that’s perfect for summer, including SPF formulas, skin treatments and lightweight makeup.
PROTECT SKIN WITH SPF FORMULAS
In the summer, the most important skin care step is adding sunscreen to your routine. Getting sun protection is a breeze with Bug Guard Gentle Breeze SPF 30 Lotion. It effectively repels a broad range of biting insects while helping shield skin from the sun. Featuring aloe and vitamin E, this non-greasy formula will perfectly prepare you for any outdoor activity, whether you’re hitting the tennis courts or just lounging by the pool.
Another way to incorporate SPF into your skin care is with a daily moisturizer, like Anew Ultimate Multi-Performance Day Cream SPF 25. This best-selling moisturizer recreates the look of youthful skin by visibly transforming multiple signs of aging. It improves skin’s texture, clarity and evenness, so your skin will look and feel great sans foundation. For more sun protection, check out our Sun Care collection.
LOOK & FEEL YOUR BEST WITH SMOOTHING SKIN TREATMENTS
Get ready to show some skin with Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Sensitive Skin Body Hair Removal Cream, complete with aloe to soothe skin. Gently apply a thick layer of this fragrance-free formula in the desired area, leave on for 2 ½ minutes, then wipe it off. It will remove body hair to leave skin looking and feeling smooth, whether you’re spending the summer in bathing suits or sundresses.
Reveal the skin you’re in with #NAKEDPROOF formulas, which deliver body care for every body. #NAKEDPROOF Affirm Yourself Firming Body Cream helps visibly banish crepey skin for a more toned and defined look, while #NAKEDPROOF Smooth Moves Anti-Cellulite Cooling Gel reduces the look of cellulite for visibly smoother skin. You’ll be perfectly prepped to rock a bathing suit this summer.
KEEP MAKEUP LIGHT AND NATURAL
Minimal makeup is a must for summer. A coat of mascara, a swipe of lip balm and a subtle bronzed glow are all you need when spending your days in the heat.
Waterproof mascara is ideal for summer activities, whether you’re hanging at the pool or beach, playing tennis or just people-watching outside. Get bold and beautiful lashes that won’t smudge or flake with Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara. It’s also hypoallergenic, so it’s perfect for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes.

Condition your pout with Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment, formulated with vitamins C and E. It provides sheer, smooth coverage and nourishes lips, so you don’t have to worry about them drying out in the summer heat. Layer it under your lip color or wear it alone for a sheer coat of moisture.
Or, if you want to protect your lips from the sun, try our Beyond Color Lip Conditioner, which conditions and revitalizes chapped, dry lips with SPF 15. It’s made with collagen and retinol, so your lips become plumper and suppler. It’s a great way to amp up your pout for summer. For more nourishing lip care, discover our lipstick collection.
Then, heighten your senses with an uplifting hair mist. The liberating scent of sweet wild strawberry, sparkling mimosa and comforting fluffy vanilla now comes in a lightweight mist specially formulated for hair. Infused with aloe leaf juice, Live Out Loud Hair Fragrance will keep your hair looking soft and feeling healthy. Not to mention, it provides a fresh and uplifting experience that’s great for a day at the pool or a fab night out with friends. Want more summery scents? View our collection of fresh fragrances.
