With the busy summer days (or perhaps, lazy summer days?) here to stay for awhile, sometimes it’s easy to neglect our beauty regimen. But, if you’re anything like us, the summer does a number on skin and hair. More frequent time spent out in the sun or by the pool means harmful damage is one by UV rays. Help protect your hair and skin with these beauty picks this summer!
Consider this cream your skin’s best friend in the summer time. We’re no stranger to the amazing Sunday Riley products here at Swift, but this cream has been flying under the radar for some time! With two forms of hyaluronic acid that help to pull water into the skin, as well as tamarind extract, Sunday Riley’s Tidal can increase hydration by up to 68 percent in as little as 15 minutes for up to 24 hours of continuous moisture! Add in that it’s also cruelty-free and free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, and phthalates - you’ve got yourself a winning combination for sun-parched skin.
While dark circles are largely genetic (thanks mom!), this under eye de-puffing gel is liquid gold in a squeeze tube. It’s the makeup-free solution for puffiness and dark circles, helping to give you a quick refresh from tired-looking eyes. It makes the perfect complement for a summer skincare routine that can’t be bogged down with heavy foundation. And if you don’t believe us, just look at a side by side comparison when we used it!
For those of us that spend any time outside in the sun (or in a pool or body of water), this shampoo & conditioner combo is essential. Made with amino acids and jojoba oil, this perfect-for-all-hair-types shampoo & conditioner combo helps to maintain hair’s moisture, improve manageability and leave hair shiny and clean. All, of course, without the use of parabens and silicone. While this combo is a bit of a splurge, it’s worth it for keeping hair happy and healthy.
Hands down one of our best-kept secrets are these deep conditioning hair mask from Briogeo. These masks work as a two-part system, with a conditioning cream and hair cap. The cap helps to lock in moisturize so that the mask can fully absorb into the hair cuticle. We recommend using this deep conditioning treatment every other week as a way to restore moisture, repair and prevent future damage to hair, especially during the summer. Perfect for all hair types and cruelty-free, vegan, and formulated without silicone, dye, and DEA.
