Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials

Going on vacation this summer? Here’s a quick list of beauty essentials to keep you glowing & healthy no matter where you go!


#1. Herbal Armor Bug Spray: Traditional bug spray includes a chemical called DEET, which studies have found to be toxic to the central nervous system. So needless to say, you probably want to avoid that. This is my favorite natural & DEET-free bug spray.                        


#2. Beautycounter Countersun Stick & Spray: Beautycounter's new Countersun line is a mineral sunscreen which actually blends in (no more chalky, white natural formulas!). It is made with non-nano zinc oxide, has SPF 30, and protects against UVA, UVB, and blue light. It is also infused with antioxidant-rich California Poppy to neutralize free radicals associated with excess sun exposure.

#3. Native Deodorant: Antiperspirants containing aluminum are no bueno for two big reasons! We don't want to block our body's ability to sweat through the glands in our armpits, as sweating is a natural way to excrete toxins! Aluminum from antiperspirants has even been shown to deposit itself in breast tissue, which may increase the risk of cancer. My favorite alternative is Native deodorant- one of the only natural brands that actually works!

#4. Dr. Bronner’s Toothpaste: I love Dr. Bronner’s toothpaste because it is free of foaming agents (like sulfates) and fluoride and has a super-simple ingredient list (every ingredient is pronounceable!).

#5. Beautycounter One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes: Longer hours of sunshine means later bedtimes. Sometimes you just don’t want to take off your makeup or wash your face fully! That’s where these makeup removing wipes come in. They are large, saturated with makeup remover, and incredibly effective (not to mention convenient!).
