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 girl 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 Macadamia Professionals. Infused with ultra-nourishing avocado, macadamia, and argan oils, it shields from UV rays to keep it healthy, soft, and strong. Bonus! It smells amazing.
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 Renâ€™s amazing little 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 forms a protective barrier around your skin with biosaccharide gum, while quercetin and zinc boosts skinâ€™s antioxidant capacity, stimulate cell repair and Â boost your immune system. Whatâ€™s more, it helps detoxify and purify your skin. 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 topcoat from Supergoop, thatâ€™s what! Â It expertly blocks UV rays, and turns your ordinary lip color into a Â powerful, SPF-infused pop of color.
