LOS ANGELES, CA… Happy Memorial Day to you and all the current and past military members who have sacrificed their safety daily, so we can enjoy a level of freedom that results of their selflessness and constant perseverance.
Over this long weekend, I’m firing up my crystal ball to predict 7 products you’ll want to add into your beauty routine, and pack as you travel and vacation this summer. They’re things that can help keep your hair looking ”beachy,” prevent foundation from melting and encourage your skin to take on a bright, glow.

Just in time for your travels this summer the Vanity Girl Hollywood Dark Platinum Travel Vanity is a must-have if you find yourself in the desert, mountains or beach with a wayward eyelash blocking your vision. The mirrors offer three distinctive colors of diffused lights, perfect for day, night and any skin tone!  Each LED light independently dims for the perfect color, temperature and glow!  The vanities are rechargeable and come with a micro USB cord. Super lightweight and portable, VGH travel vanities save, big time, on bathroom space if you’re sharing a hotel room with a few of your besties or the lighting in your bathroom, at home, leaves something to be desired as you’re trying to apply your makeup. The right beauty tools are a total game changer if you’re ready to up level and polish your look up in the second half of 2019!

This skin and hair care brand from Sweden created a gadget called a “Peeling Pen” which allows us, LA beach babes to get our “Scandinavian Glow” on (Tack Guys! That’s Swedish for “Thanks’).  Ideal for the summer months when we want to go makeup free and rid our face of dry, dull skin.  The unique application is easy to use, as you simply pop open the pen, rub the saturated swab over your clean, dry complexion and after 10 min, skin looks healthy and glowing. Key ingredients? Cloudberry, glycolic acid, lactic acid and hydrolized collagen work synergistically to resurface the texture of your skin. For optimal results, the pen should be used 1-2 times a week and when you’re done, apply a little bit of serum and moisturizer to seal in the results.

Sunscreen is a must – the key is you want to look for a higher SPF, with a minimum of SPF 50. Are you guys picking up what I’m putting down here? Higher SPF sunscreens provide an additional margin of protection when used. I’m a fan of Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50. It’s formulated with Helioplex® technology and hyaluronic acid which work like a lightweight dynamic duo to deliver powerful broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection while quenching skin with vital hydration. So you get the best of both: effective protection and anti-aging skincare simultaneously.  And what I call “added value” or the “bonus round,” the Water Gel formula layers invisibly under makeup for a clean and non-greasy finish. So it checks of this box for us too.
PRICE: $12.99

I was curious to try the NEW Maybelline New York Dream Urban Cover. It’s the brand’s new full coverage “protective” makeup for a flawless summer complexion. So I emailed them and asked if they’d be up for shipping me samples for a KTLA Morning News review. Turned out, it wasn’t a dream – it was reality when the collection of 16 shades arrived on my doorstep! Dream Urban Cover offers buildable coverage and it’s lightweight, breathable formula delivers high-quality skincare benefits with a natural finish. Interestingly I didn’t even need to apply concealer to cover my dark circles. This foundation alone did the trick! But to me the big “wow” is not only does it contain SPF 50 to protect against UV rays, it’s simultaneously enriched with antioxidants to block out pollution. In Los Angeles this is huge, with our less than great air quality over summers! So it serves triple duty: protecting from sunburns, pollution, aging and giving you a flawless, polished look!

This new (it just debuted in March) game-changing and multi-award-winning water-based collection of self tanners goes one step further with the launch of St.Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Gel. It’s a weightless, non-sticky clear gel that… transforms into water💦 upon contact with the skin for instant absorption, immediate hydration and a natural looking, golden depth of tan that develops in just 3 hours!  It’s a clear formula so you can put it on in the morning for an instant hydrated glow and then go on with your day without worrying about guide color getting on your clothes.
