Summer Beauty Essentials by Miss Southern Prep featuring ralph lauren sunglasses
~Wired--I straighten my hair almost every schoolday during the fall winter, and about half of the week during the spring, so during the summer I give my wavy hair a break and embrace the curls. I think it's important to give your hair a straightening break, because with the sun and chlorine, hair becomes even more dry during the summer. I LOVE Wired for my curly hair--it's not as expensive as some products, has a wonderful smell, and lasts all day!
~Neutrogena Sunscreen--Sunscreen is a MUST! I always wear at least 40 SPF, but usually 70!
~Burt's Bees Lip Balm--I love Burt's Bees, and this lip balm is great and adds a bit of color to your lips!
~Oversized Sunglasses--I don't want to have to Botox by 30, so I always wear oversized sunglasses to protect my eyes!
~Bobbi Brown Waterproof Mascara--I could never leave the house without makeup, but I tone it down and keep my makeup more simple during the summer. I love this waterproof mascara, because it doesn't come off in the pool, but it's simple and makes my lashes look great!
~Neutrogena Body Scrub--Sometimes sunscreen mixed with working out, and the stickiness of the summer makes me get a few breakouts on my shoulders and back, but since using this, I have almost no breakouts, ever!
~Nail Polish--I'm partial to OPI, but no matter what your preference, I think it's important to always have your nails and toes painted in a fun, summery color!
~Proactiv Refining Mask--Sometimes my pores get clogged from the sunscreen, so as soon as I see a blemish pop up, I put a little dab on this overnight, and it's so much better in the morning.
~Water--I always have a Tervis Tumbler filled with water, because I think it's so important to stay hydrated during the summer heat! It also helps skin stay refreshed and hydrated!
~John Frieda Go Blonder Spray--I use to use Sun-In, but I think this is much gentler on my hair and works better!
~Neutrogena Natural Glow--I love the way this lotion gives me a glow that doesn't look fake or orange.
