You Need to Have
By Gene Loves Acosta
There’s a lot to love about summer. Unfortunately, sticky summer days aren’t exactly good for your beauty goals. Before you plan all your summer trips and day dream about relaxing by the pool, make sure you’re equipped with this season’s beauty essentials. If you don’t know where to start (because there will be a lot of new products hitting the shelves!), how about loving your own and taking a look at the local beauty brands?

Did you know that you need to use a hair mask at least once a week especially during summer? After having fun in the sun, make sure to give your hair some R&R with a nourishing treatment to protect your locks against damage. Everyone is also raving about the deliciously indulgent scent of this product so it doesn’t only leave your hair looking good but also smelling even better.

Orange and Vanilla Dry Shampoo
This one is perfect for those hot summer days when you’re running late and can’t even think of using the blow-dryer, or when you feel too sweaty but you want an instant fix for a fresh ‘do. The oil-absorbing powder instantly removes excess oil and makes your hair look renewed. The sweet-smelling combination of vanilla and citrus will also give you an after-shower feeling.
