Summer Beauty Must Haves

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit http://www.discoverbeautywithin.com/

Now that summer is here we are spending a lot of time outdoors. Which means we are loading up on sunscreen, it's the one thing I make sure to wear everyday. I never forget it. Sunscreen should be part of everyone's beauty routine every day. Do you wear sunscreen daily?
I really like Olay Complete for an every day sunscreen and moisturizer. Of course if I am planning on spending more time outside or at the swimming pool I reach for something with more sun protection. My sunscreen protection can vary but I always make sure Brody has on 50 SPF like Banana Boat Kids Broad Spectrum Sunblock

I am also a big fan of sunscreen sticks. It's easy to carry in my purse and I can reapply to Brody's cheeks and nose really fast. He doesn't like stopping his fun to put on sunscreen so I have to be able to apply it quickly and sunscreen sticks do the trick.

I can be prone to dry lips so I like to keep something on hand for that. Softlips Lip Protectant is great because it has a 20 SPF. If you get cold sores it's important to have SPF in your chapstick to help prevent getting cold sores.
Summer also means taking care of my feet and making sure my toes are painted. I love giving myself little pedicures. Here are some of my favorite nail care products.
1) Cuticle nippers these are perfect for clipping those nasty hangnails.
2) Nail polish I love Essie nail polish, it's one of my favorite brands.
3) Nail buffer next time you paint your nails try buffing your nails first (just use the first 2 sides) it will help them look smooth and free of ridges.
4) Nail clippers
5) Manicure sticks also known as an orange stick or cuticle pusher.
6) Emery boards I like to keep an emery board on hand, it keeps me from biting my nails.

Well, there you have some of my summer beauty must haves.

What are your summer beauty must haves?


  1. Those sunscreen sticks are really handy.

  2. I'll have to try that Oil of Olay kind. I also like your tip of carrying around a sunblock stick for the kiddos for emergencies!

  3. I use that Oil of Olay moisturizer! My face never gets sunburn. I love it.
