31 Inspired Ideas to Revamp Your Beauty Routine This Month
Long, low-key afternoons. Lazy weekends. Now is the perfect time to break out of your routine. We've got 31 new ways to jazz up this season—and your looks!
Looking for permission to skip face-washing tonight? Here
it is: Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing
Wipes ($6; Target.com) are infused
with soothing aloe vera and softening papaya extract.
(The delicious coconut scent is a nice bonus.) Use one
right before you hit the pillow.
A silver eyeshadow with no glitter or shimmer (like
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Magical, $23; LauraMercier.com)
complements every skin tone; a light wash all over lids
is low-key enough to wear during the day.
Call a truce in your fight against frizz. A cute
bucket hat hides a humidity-ravaged style, protects your
face from damaging UVA-UVB rays and elevates any casual
summer outfit. ($138; Coach.com)
Splendor in the Grass
A citrusy summer fragrance is predictable—try a
lush green vetiver instead. Giorgio Armani Beauty
Armani Privé Vétiver Babylone ($160; GiorgioArmaniBeauty.com) perks up the fresh grassy note with sunny bergamot and spicy pink pepper.
If you think scarves are just for winter, think
again...about a bright wrap in lightweight cotton,
pashmina, silk, or linen. Wear it tied in a loose knot or
drape it like a cowl around your neck for sun protection;
in the AC, throw it over your shoulders to ward off the
chill. ($175; TheodoraandCallum.com)
Smooth a cloth mask saturated with skin-brightening
ingredients over your face, put your feet up, close your
eyes for ten minutes—and open them to softer, more
radiant skin. Want an even more transporting experience?
Store the individually wrapped masks in the fridge.
