Summer Beauty Essentials! Go Eco-Chic with These Must-Haves

Make your summer beauty routine all-natural with these eco-chic essentials recommended by beauty guru Lori Crete!

1. Suntegrity 5 in 1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen ($45): This tinted SPF 30 sunscreen and BB cream does it all… treats, hydrates, protects, primes and covers the skin! “I love this sunblock because it's chemical free and convenient,” said Lori, adding, “There has been so much talk about skin damage from light bulbs and computer screens that I suggest a daily SPF protector just to prevent any extra photo damage to our skin.” For even more protection, check out Suntegrity’s SPF 30 mineral sunblock!

2. Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($22.50): Keep your smackers plumped and protected this summer! Lori says, “I keep these everywhere. They are paraben-free, packed full of reparative oils. With the added benefit of SPF 15, they leave your lips beautiful and healthy all summer long. There are lots of shades, but my personal favorite is Pink Blossom.” 

3. Om Toning Mist ($32): Give your pores a helping hand! “These alcohol-free aromatherapy mists (tea tree oil and lavender are great for battling summer sweat) clean out your pores so you feel refreshed and renewed in seconds,” says Crete. “I tell all my clients to keep one in their gym bag for a great post-workout pore cleaner.”

4. Crystal Rock Deodorant Unscented Stick ($6.99): This all natural deodorant battles B.O. for up to 24 hours without the use of synthetic fragrances or harmful chemicals. “I searched high and low for a natural deodorant that actually worked and this is it,” Crete said. “It’s gentle, non-sticky and non-staining, and contains no aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, parabens or phthalates.” 

5. Osmosis Cucumber Mint Balancing Mask ($100): Lori says cucumber and mint are two of her favorite summer skin care ingredients, adding, “I keep this at home in my fridge and love the cooling and moisturizing effect. It’s great to give the skin a fresh glow.”
