Summer skin and hair is all about easy and breezy styling; however that isn't always the case when faced with too much sun, sweat, and not enough sleep. To help you out, we searched (and tested out!) some of the most innovative beauty products on the market that can stand up to all of your summer beauty needs.
I am constantly looking for sunscreen brands that don't use any chemicals. One of my favorites is DeVita Natural Skin Care, an all-natural, 100% paraben free and vegan beauty company with a full line of sun care products that offer all natural, safe and reliable SPF30+ and SPF 15 protection. Their Solar Body Moisturizer with SPF 30 is a great way to be protected without feeling greasy. I also love that it is great on sensitive skin, and has a formula that can work to make fine lines and wrinkles disappear while also leaving the skin super smooth.
My skin is changing as I get older, and over the summer I've also noticed that my regime is completely different than during the rest of the year. Since our skin is constantly evolving, it is crucial to have a product that stands up its many layers. One such brand is Bona Clara, an age-specific, naturally-based skin care line that was developed by MIT grad and ingredient expert, Jasmina Aganovic.
Featuring four lines specifically formulated to address the biological skin changes that occurs during the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s+. This includes cleaners, scrubs, toners, serums, and treatment creams that cover various levels - depending on your skincare needs.

Another great option to take care of your summer skin is the the 40s Treatment Cream and the 50s Neck Cream to both firm and treat the skin. For more information, please visit: Bona Clara.
Another favorite is the new HerbalShampoos, Conditioner and Shower Gels from Herbacin. Featuring the company’s new colorful brand graphic, the line has a fresh, vibrant look, color coded to represent the primary ingredient and the containers feature an easy to open push tab. With refreshing, subtle scents, this new line features natural herbal extracts and plant based botanicals. The line includes the Herbacin® Herbal Shampoos and Conditioners (Volume Shampoo, Balance Shampoo, Care Shampoo and the Care and Protection Conditioner) with my favorite being the Balance Shampoo. I love the calming scent of ginger root, lemon balm and birch that works to regulate oils and restores the natural pH-balance of the scalp - not to mention is completely relaxing after a hot day!
I have also been loving the fresh-scented Herbal Shower Gels from Herbacin. This includes Dragon Fruit + Passion Fruit, Camomile + Green Tea and Lemongrass + Ginger whose formulas provide a variety of healing properties and benefits to the skin.
