Your Summer Beauty Survival Kit
Summertime is the best time for venturing outdoors, agreed? From picnics to patio parties, BBQs to bridal events, the season is full of soirees in the sunshine. Don’t let the heat keep you from looking your best. Here are the top 4 products you need in your purse for a summer beauty survival kit.
1. Face Wipes
When it’s humid out, do your face a favor and swipe your skin with an ultra-gentle face wipe. Post-gym or post-work, these miracle clothes will calm skin and keep it clear of grime, sweat and overall stickiness. They’re lifesavers for when you want to freshen up on the go.

2. A Deodorizing Spray
Let’s face it: summer is full of unpleasant body odor smells. Instead of using regular perfume to mask — but not fix — the issue, pack a deodorizing body spray. It’ll treat the stench and not just cover it up. Spritz your pits, the back of your neck or anywhere else you’re feeling sweaty. Peppermint, rosemary and eucalyptus all work to naturally deodorize your body and leave a pleasant scent behind as well.

3. A B.B. Cream
These miracle creams are a mix of skincare and makeup in a single product. It’ll brighten, hydrate and even out your skin while providing coverage like a tinted moisturizer. Try a version with SPF so you can practice safe sun, too. It’ll work with the weather to leave your skin looking dewy and radiant.

4. Heel Protectors
You love your heels (who doesn’t?), but backyards, parks and outdoor weddings present problems for your favorite heightened soles. The fix? Discreet heel covers go right over the point to not only protect your heels from scuffs and scratches, but also to keep you from sinking into the grass! Genius, right? Stand tall(er) and walk easier with these shoesavers.
