Just like your wardrobe, it’s important to mix-up your beauty routine for the summer. You wouldn’t want to wear tweed in July, and the same goes for heavy make-up during the summer months. While I’m a total product junkie, there’s no way I’m buying all new make-up and beauty products for each season. The great thing about summer is, it’s all about cutting back and simplifying your routine. And of course the magic words: SPF, SPF, and SPF.

Although we’d all like to look like this LADY, it’s hard to skimp on our sun-worshiping ways. So whether you’re beach bound or just trying to beat the heat, here’s a few summer beauty products I’ve been loving lately.

Guru Tip: Snag a cute beach tote and fill it with any number of these products for an instant beauty gift basket.

Starting Clockwise: ALTERNA Summer Hair Sun Recovery Spray | Philosophy the Supernatural Blotting Papers | Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Perfume Roll-On | NARS Blush/ Bronzer/ Highlighter Trio | Fair trade bluma project Beach Bag | Kiss My Face Paraben-Free Sunspray Lotion | Boscia Clear Complexion Tonic with Botanical Blast |
