5 Beauty Must-Haves for July 4th Weekend
Headed out of town for the long 4th of July weekend? Aside from needing to pack your festive red, white and blue attire, make sure you don’t forget your summer beauty must-haves. Whether you’re camping, going to a BBQ, hitting the beach or spending the day by the pool, you won’t want to leave home without these skin-care essentials in your weekender bag.
Rain or shine, you’ll need a trusty SPF regardless of the forecast. Choose one that offers broad-spectrum coverage and has at least SPF 15 or higher. We like CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen 30 for its ultra-light texture that feels comfortable on the skin without leaving a greasy, white residue. Formulated with antioxidants, this mineral sunscreen helps neutralize free radical damage caused by pollutants, as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Don’t let chapped lips ruin your trip. Keep your pout hydrated with a nourishing lip balm. We love Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 30 because it’s available in six shades and offers broad-spectrum sun protection.
With a jam-packed itinerary of outdoor activities, a facial mist is a great product to keep on-hand for quick, refreshing relief from the heat. La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water contains a mix of mineral salts and trace elements that offer immediate soothing effects on skin.
All that time in the sun is bound to make your skin look shiny and sweaty. Blotting papers are easy to use and can help curb unwanted midday oiliness. NYX Professional Makeup Blotting Paper absorb excess oils without ruining makeup.
Ditch your foundation for a lighter CC cream boasting natural-looking coverage, SPF protection and antioxidant-enriched hydration. Lancôme UV Expert Mineral CC Cream SPF 50 checks off all the boxes. It’s available in five shades, each containing SPF 50 and delivers all-day hydration with medium-to-full coverage.
