One of my favorite things about Summer is going to the beach. I love the way my skin and hair feel after a day lounging and walking with my dog on the sand. My skin is soft, sun kissed, and salty and my hair is wavy and thick from the misty air. Add an ice cream cone and a sexy boy and you've got my perfect summer day!
But with hectic schedules comes less beach days and more days spent working or running errands (and to think as a kid I thought being an adult would be awesome. I'd trade my driver's license and rent for biking with friends and going to the movies all day every day any day! Did that make sense?).
Let's start with the shower. SKN Beverly Hills makes a body scrub called "Beach House Body" and it's the fastest way to feel like a beach bum without living on a beach! It uses actual sand, jojoba beads and apricot seeds to exfoliate your skin, leaving you bright and Summer Ice Cream date ready! (Man, is anyone else craving ice cream?) I love the feel and smell of this scrub! I started using it when the North East was still feeling ickish from Winter (aka Spring) and it made me so excited for Summer! And the beach! And ice cream!
Now that my skin was ready, I just had to do something about my long wavy blah winter hair. And I found it! Organix Moroccan Sea Salt Spray & Surf Paste are my summer hair go-tos this year! The Sea Salt Spray is a great quick tool that gives you hair that great natural texture that I thought you could on get at the beach! I give my hair a quick spritz straight out of the shower and let it air dry for my not-really-wavy-not-really-straight tressels to transform into soft, sexy waves. The Surf Paste gives your hair a bit more structure and control, getting rid of flyaways while still leaving you looking natural. It doesn't hurt that they both smell like the beach (minus the dead fish smell you sometimes get).
Even though the weather has just started to feel Summer-ish, I've been enjoying the beach for weeks now thanks to these three wonderful products! Well, I have to go eat some ice cream now!...
