Hello Summer!

New bikini? Check! Stylish sunglasses? Check! Glowing skin and beach-ready hair? Well, not really.

Whether you’re about to head on a beach vacation or just hanging around the park or a pool nearby, check out these summer beauty essentials to make the most of this summer season.

 

NATURAL GLOW & EVEN SKIN

Now that the weather is heating up, we pull out those skirts and dresses we’ve been waiting all winter to wear. What if your skin is not quite ready for the summer season?  There are a few steps for a better beauty regimen to prep your skin for summer in no time. As everyone longs for extra smooth skin, start prepping your skin by using a body scrub to remove dead skin cells and to get rid of any ingrown hairs on legs and the bikini area. Now your skin is ready for some hair removal. It’s up to you whether you prefer a classic shave or if you’d rather go for long-lasting waxing or sugaring. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin afterwards, especially when it tends to be irritated and dry after the hair removal.

Totally natural with its luscious scent, coconut oil acts as a great skin (and hair!) moisturizer. Just massage into the skin while still damp and enjoy the Caribbean smell all around you. A tinted moisturizer – with SPF – will give you full coverage without feeling heavy like a foundation. Before hitting the beach, don’t forget to apply a large amount of sunscreen – your skin and hair will definitely appreciate it. If your skin begins to feel tight or appears red after spending the day outside, soothe it with a rich body cream that contains ingredients such as argan oil, vitamins E and A, and menthol derivate (which has a cooling effect and is great at preventing skin damage. Adding a lip balm with SPF will complete your sun care regimen.

BEACH HAIR

You don’t have to hit the beach to get sexy beach waves! Just spritz a sea salt spray onto damp hair and scrunch a bit. Applying a smoothing hair serum tames frizzy hair while protecting it from the burning sun. When temperatures rise, wearing braids or a top knot is the easiest and best way to keep hair out of the face while looking gorgeous all day long. When heading to the beach bar in the evening, just open the braid(s) to get some loose mermaid waves. After spending the day at the pool or beach, repair your mane with a nourishing and hydrating hair mask. You can also leave it on overnight for maximum benefits.

NAILS & EYES

Summer is officially sandal and flip-flop season so don’t be afraid to show off your toes! Make sure to keep your fee and hands looking flawless with regular manicures and pedicures. You don’t have to go to a salon – many brands offer complete manicure-pedicure kits that will do the job pretty well.

Stand out at the next pool party by wearing a striking eyeliner. Make sure the eyeliner is waterproof so you won’t have to worry about getting splashed If you’re going for a more natural look, a neutral eye shadow palette that comes with the perfect mix of barely-visible shadows will look beautiful with your summer glow.

OPI: New Orleans Collection

From the filigreed iron of its balconies to the jazz and jambalaya that permeate its air, New Orleans personifies grace, gumption and joie de vivre. The city’s indomitable spirit is the inspiration for OPI’s New Orleans collection.

New Orleans Collection by OPI features 12 gorgeous new nail lacquers and matching GelColors that take nails and toes from beignets at Café du Monde all the way to nightcaps on Bourbon Street in style.

Sweet, spicy, soulful and vibrant, the palette is perfect for a town where parades pop up everywhere, and dancing in the streets is de rigueur. Every day is Mardi Gras with shades like “I Manicure for Beads” and “I’m Sooo Swamped.” It’s always fair (albeit steamy) weather, with “Humidi-tea” or “Let Me Bayou a Drink.” Other hues – “Got Myself into a Jam-balaya,” “Rich Girls & Po-Boys” and “Crawfishin’ for a Compliment” – pay homage to the Big Easy’s world-famous cuisine.

“The colors of New Orleans are more vibrant than ever, and we celebrate them wholeheartedly with our New Orleans collection,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “New Orleans is a place to recharge and revel. One where the atmosphere is delightfully diverse, where the food is epic and where music feeds the soul. We have bottled up a little of that special NOLA culture, all while supporting the city’s remarkable renaissance.”

New Orleans Collection by OPI includes the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas:
