The end of summer struggle is real. Not just because we have to transition out of beach-brain (so harsh!), but because we’ve got to recover from beach hair and skin too. The sun-kissed look may have been gorgeous with a flowy dress and floppy hat, but when the glow goes, a little beauty rehab is always in order.
Here are seven products we’re relying on this time of year to make a total recovery. From polishing hair potions to calming face masks, we highly recommend each of these green goddess elixirs…
Rahua Detox and Renewal Treatment Kit | Rahua is a TCM brand staple. We’ve long been fans of this sustainable beauty brand and this 100% natural, two-stage kit is no disappointment. Mix both products for a deeply cleansing, softening and nourishing experience that’ll have your hair fall sweater weather ready in no time. CHECK OUT HERE
Votary Super Seed Facial Oil | Featuring a laundry – or should we say grocery – list of over twenty fruit and veggie seed oils, this anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, dry skin solution could easily pass as dreamy summer salad or smoothie – so we’re sure our faces won’t mind. Check out their oil based cleanser too. CHECK OUT HERE
Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask | This neon blue, but totally natural mask is unlike anything we’ve ever tried. It’s both calming (thanks, blue tansy) and resurfacing at the same time and has garnered us instant compliments post-use more than once. Get a glow, but without over peeling or upset to the skin. An August skin MUST.
Gloss Moderne High Gloss Serum | Dull, dry and damaged? Not a worry. We’re loving everything in this new brand’s line, but this gentle, vegan hair serum is our fave. It not only infuses those post-summer strands with some serious shine, but it will also protect them from future damage, especially of the thermal variety. CHECK OUT HERE
True Botanicals Deep Repair Eye Serum |Deep moisture is a must for the delicate skin around our eyes, especially after we’ve been squinting and smiling under the sun all summer, but we can’t always handled the insanely rich eye creams intended for the over 80 crowd. This gentle blend which includes carrot, cucumber, and blackberry seed oils is nourishing, light and still super effective. CHECK OUT HERE
Tata Harper Moisturizing Mask | Skip the spa and hit the bottle (this bottle, that is) to transform dehydrated, sun-damaged skin back into the kind that glows radiantly and naturally. This rich and creamy mask can be used in place of moisturizer, is a frequent flyer’s best friend (leave it on coast to coast!) or as the last step to any home beauty ritual. One of Tata Harper’s best products! CHECK OUT HERE
Reverie Ever Recovery Hair Oil | See ya later, split ends (or never again, ideally). This reparative oil is lightweight enough to use on dry hair and totally healing for all hair types. Work it into your usual styling routine for both instant nourishment and long-term lock recovery. CHECK OUT HERE
