From glowing skin to a better sex life, use this summer beauty guide to survive and thrive this summer.

Skin Health

Emerging from months of colder weather and Netflix binges might have your skin feeling dull and dry. Here are some tips to help you get your glow on.

  • Brighten up! For summer beauty, it’s all about brightening up and fighting those signs of dryness and aging with the right products. RetinAll Daily Serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles, hydrates, and visibly brightens skin.
  • Sip your way to more youthful skin. Glow Sticks work from the inside-out to improve wrinkles and skin elasticity, restore skin’s barrier function (which is key to keeping hydration in), and hydrate your skin and body.*
  • Protect yourself. Invest in a good sunscreen that’s at least SPF 30 and remember you can mix and match products for your face and body.
  • Double up. When using more products during the day, it’s even more important to take it all off at night. Try a double-cleansing method to cut through the extra moisturizer and sunscreen you use in the summer. Swipe your face with micellar water or makeup removing wipes first and then use a gentle cleanser.

Hair Care

Summer beauty calls for shinier, healthier hair that can better withstand the effects of the sun, water, and sand. Make sure to add these to your hair-care checklist:

  • Mask it. Hair masks give your locks an extra layer of protection and moisture and work great in the sun. Turn a session by the pool into a masking opportunity by smoothing one over your hair, putting your hair into a braid or a bun, and allowing the heat from the sun to accelerate the effects.
  • Nourish from the inside out. No topical product can compensate for a lack of nourishment, no matter what they promise. Give your hair what it needs from the inside out by taking our Hair Regeneres ADVANCED supplement all summer long. It’s formulated with B vitamins, bioavailable keratin, collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid, and more to help reduce shedding and breakage and regrow thicker hair.*
  • Think protection. Help your hair survive the summer by adding protection from the sun. A chic sunhat, protective styles like braids, or a breezy scarf add to your look while helping your hair avoid damage from harmful UV rays.
Summer Beauty and Fitness

Body and Fitness

No matter what your fitness goals are this year, make sure the summer months contribute rather than detract from what you’re working on. It’s all about leveraging your time and energy to make the best of summer fitness.

  • Set realistic goals. Don’t set yourself up for failure by setting goals that are next to impossible. Instead, set and track measurable targets for your health, like leveling up your weightlifting by 5 or 10 pounds, finally achieving the perfect eagle pose in your yoga class, or adding a mile per week to your long runs.
  • Get creative. The novelty of summer activities can give your fitness routine an extra jolt of energy, especially if you’re burning out on the usual. Swap the treadmill for a pool when you need a cardio workout; join a sunrise yoga class; take a hike instead of doing your typical leg day; paddleboard rather than suffering through another core mat workout. You might find a new activity you love while soaking up the sun.
Summer Beauty Guide

Body Love

Your sexual wellbeing is every bit as important to your summer survival as nourishing your body and sticking to your fitness goals. If you’re feeling, uh, less-than-inspired with your sexual health, try these ideas to spice things up and give your body the love it deserves.

  • Get confident. The sudden switch from sweatpants to swimsuits might have you feeling a little intimidated. Warm up to it by investing in some sexy nightwear to test the waters and get confident in the skin you have now. Even a silky tank and shorts can help you show your body some love, which will definitely translate to a healthier sex life.
  • Schedule something new. Whether you’re single or attached, a new experience can jumpstart a winter-stale sex life. Even something as simple as a staycation at a local boutique hotel, a couples’ yoga class, or safely trying something you’ve always wanted to experience in the bedroom can give you new connection and confidence for the sexiest summer ever.
