My 2019 Summer Beauty Essentials
Love Sun Body Natural Mineral Sunscreen
The moment I learned that the generic drugstore sunscreens I was using were filled with toxic chemicals that were not only unsafe for my environment but also terrible for my skin, I made the switch. Love Sun Body safely meets FDA requirements and European Commission’s recommendations. Best of all, Love Sun Body sunscreens are also reef safe. Sunscreen is important throughout the year but because people more commonly go to the beach in the summertime, I wanted to bring light onto this amazing product.

Urban Decay Quick Fix Pre-priming Spray
This is a hydra-charged complexion prep priming spray. The vegan formula is super refreshing on the skin which is why I love using this during the summer time. I live in Los Angeles where summer heat tends to be more dry like an oven rather than humid, so it is exceptionally beneficial for the moisture of my skin. You can apply this before your primer/makeup, or right before your nighttime skincare routine. I like using this in my nighttime skincare routine. It keeps my skin looking fresh with a nice glow throughout the next day. I have also seen little less redness in the areas of my face where rosacea is inflamed.
I began using this deodorant a couple of months ago. I wanted to stay away from the more common deodorants you’d find at the grocery store that were made with harsh ingredients such as aluminum and sulfates. I started using natural deodorants for about two years now. I was testing different kinds from different companies but most fell short of lasting all day. I had to reapply at least once a day. I heard a lot about NATIVE, and I was a little hesitant to try it at first because of the price tag (varies depending where you purchase.) I am so glad I took that leap of faith because I don’t think I am ever going to need to try another deodorant again. It is well worth the price tag. The scents smell good, not too strong, and it lasts all day. I have tested the Jasmine & Cedar, and Lavender & Rose scents. My favorite so far is the Lavender & Rose. 10/10 My go to deodorant, especially for the summer heat.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
This lip mask I leave on overnight. Sometimes I even use it as a gloss because of its slight tint, but not as often. My lips get chapped so fast during the summertime, and I love wearing colored lips during the days. So the best way I keep my lips moisturized is by using this mask overnight. I can easily choose to reapply a clean chapstick throughout the day, but this is a lot easier. Trust me. It absorbs into my lips. All I have to do is apply once at night, and my lips are chapped free for the rest of the day. Plus I am super comfortable leaving this overnight because I know BITE Beauty focuses on clean ingredients.
A Summery Nail Polish by Ella & Mila
Ella & Mila is my go to for nail polish because of its safer vegan ingredients, zero animal testing policy, and healthy beauty. A nice nail color is always the best way to finish off a look. This summer I chose to stick with a light pinkish, coral color. This nail color by Ella & Mila is “Tea Rose.”
