Spring is starting to wind down so it’s time to focus on the beautiful Summer days! Because Summertime is the season to pop out and rock out to your heart’s desires, you have to be prepped and ready to take it over! Here are a few essentials that need to be in your arsenal as you dominate the city.
I can not say it enough, sunscreen prevents premature damage that’s already been done to your gorgeous melanin! UV Rays from the sun are harsh to all skin tones and types, so you have to bathe yourself in the glory of glossy protection. Save yourself from developing skin cancer, sunspots, deep wrinkles, and dark spots by using protection that leaves you beaming and glowing like the star you are! There are literally tons of options of sunscreen and all pretty much do the same. As a melanin beauty, finding the tight sunscreen that absorbs without a cast is a challenge but don’t worry, we got you covered. Black Girl Sunscreen, Pomegranate & Honey Illuminating Face Lotion with SPF 15, and Natural Roots Brownin Cream were formulated to appease the needs of black beauties without dulling our skin. These products will leave you pleased with consistent results as you begin to see dark spots fade and your skin glow!
2) Lip Color
To add an extra pop of color to your outfits, lip color will serve you well. Whether it’s lip gloss or liquid lipstick, your lips will be supple and attention grabbing. The UOMA Beauty Boss Gloss Liquid Marble is a perfect option because of its vast collection of colors that leave your lips shiny and nourished for hours to come. If you’re looking for something a lil bit more lasting, the
AJ Crimson Liquid Lipstick finishes in a matte style to compliment a potentially long outing!
As you prep for your extravagances, a nice gentle exfoliator will leave your spirit feeling alleviated! There’s nothing better than having soft skin that glows as the sun reflects off it. You look good and smell good, so how can you not love an exfoliator? Treat yourself to Alikay Naturals Brown Suga’ Baby Body Scrub and KAIKE Sugar Scrub are enriched with organic avocado oil amongst other nourishing oils to leave the skin invigorated and polished to its fullest extent. You’ll be surprised as the suppleness of your skin and its hydration retention.
This can be said without much argument. Lotion is needed 24/7, every day all day no matter the season. Since it’s warmer out, more skin is being shown. After exfoliating, this is the perfect end to your routine because it’s a lightweight sealant without excessive oil! The Diva by Cindy Shea Body Lotion and Urban Hydration Lemon Body Lotion are two of the best body lotions to leave your skin looking and feeling it’s best. To guarantee you’re not ashy, classic ingredients of coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E leave you ready to conquer the day!
5) Leave-in conditioner
If you’re in a rush and in need of quick moisture, leave in conditioners will serve you well. Your curls will be hydrated and gleaming will each reflection of light because they’re happy! The Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Leave-In Conditioner and Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk Leave-In Conditioner are easily dispensed to shield your hair with powerful nutrients. The results are fast acting, so you won’t waste more time than necessary trying to style your hair!
Because the heat is so draining, there’s a strong likelihood you sweated immensely. To combat buildup and smelly hair, shampoo is needed at least once weekly (twice if you sweated that badly). The Darshana Natural Moisturizing Shampoo and Strands of Faith Non-Stripping Shampoo Bar are non-stripping to deeply cleanse with gentle botanicals that amplify your hair’s beauty!
