Ah, city life: the late-night buzz, the excitement, the chaos, the long nights out with your girlfriends. Oh, and letâ€™s not forget the pollution, germs, and free radicals. While we love life in the big city, our skin and hair donâ€™t necessarily agree. Dirt, pollution, sun, and a lack of sleep can all cause serious beauty issues, but donâ€™t head for the suburbs just yet! Before you pack your bags, consider adapting your normal routine for life in the city. From skin-shielding masks to restorative mists, find your city essentials here.
Weâ€™re pretty good about applying sunscreen to our body and face, but our hair? Believe it or not, your strands need UV protection, too, which is why weâ€™re loving this lightweight mist from Klorane. Infused withÂ Â It’s paradise in a bottle, with warm sand, coconut milk, and ylang-ylang wax and an ultra-nourishing oil complex, it shields from UV rays to keep it healthy, soft, and strong. Bonus! It smells amazingâ€”likeÂ warm sand, coconut milk, and ylang-ylang.
When you live in the city, your skin is exposed to a host of stressors. Smog, cigarette smoke, car exhaustâ€”you name it, your skin has to deal with it. Thatâ€™s where Eve Lomâ€™s amazing mist comes in. The refreshing formula shields skin from both pollution and free radicals, which can cause fine lines, dullness, and discoloration. The nutrient-rich mist formula contains Rose Otto Oil to soothes and comforts compromised skin, whileÂ Â antipollution active Wild Indigo extract acts to calm skin and reduce visible signs of stress caused by air pollution.Â The travel-friendly bottle fits nicely in your purse, too, so you can have a Â refreshing, Â mid-day pick-me-up anytime, anyplace.
When we think â€śface maskâ€ť, we typically think of something we apply alone, sequestered in the bathroom where no one can see. Well, Allies of Skin offers a very different kind of face mask, one that can be applied in broad daylight. (In fact, no one will know youâ€™re wearing it!) The Â 1A Â All-Day Mask Beauty is a revolutionary, all-day facial mask can be worn under makeup and sunblock, protecting skin from pollution and providing skincare benefits from morning to noon. Itâ€™s way more efficacious than a day cream, and leaves our skin soft, refreshed and protected.
The sun does not discriminate, and a sunburn can happen anywhere. Like the rest of our bodies, our lips need sun protection, but hereâ€™s the catch: we donâ€™t want to swap out our regular lip color for a balm with SPF. Whatâ€™s a girl to do? Reach for this amazing SPF balm from Jack Black, thatâ€™s what! Â It expertly blocks UV rays, and leaves lips soft, moisturized, and coated in a deliciously-scented layer of SPF protection.
