Thirsty Souls

Thirsty Souls: Summer Skin

This week we're thirsty for summer skin. Protect the skin you're in with these beauty essentials and beach accessories for a summer glow as radiant as the sun.

1. Airelle

Summer skin starts with a little pampering.

Airelle uses powerful natural ingredients like blueberry and flaxseed extract to help prevent the breakdown of collagen resulting from environmental damage caused by the sun's harmful UV and infared rays. Try the Intense Hydrating Repair Complex for a restorative aloe treatment and the Hydrating Manuka Mask for an antioxidant-rich, honey-based facial.

2. Preston & Olivia Hats

These chic toppers fuse the elegance of traditional Southern style with the sophistication of modern Manhattan for a look that works everywhere from LA to Paris. 

Preston & Olivia hats have been featured in Vogue, W magazine, Allure, Nylon, Elle, and Marie Claire so this is an easy way to add an editorial edge to your Instagram feed.  Our picks for this summer? The Ursula, the Ashby, and the Malby Vented.

3. Herbivore Botanicals, After Sun

This soothing mist  - available at Urban Outfitters - uses aloe, mint, and lavender to refresh and cool sun-soaked skin. Pair it with an ice-cold CALIWATER prickly pear margarita to refresh your spirit on a Saturday afternoon.

4. Umbrellas via Sunday Supply Co.

If Rihanna has taught us anything, it's the importance of a good umbrella.  Your crew will have it made in the shade under one of these scene-stealing vintage umbrellas, made with UPF30+ premium fabric.

5.  Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment

Sunday Riley's lactic-acid treatment is a behind-the-scenes favorite at NY Fashion Week to help even and brighten tone for that fresh-from-the-spa glow. Layer with sunscreen and a light foundation for luminous, red-carpet-ready skin.

No summer look is complete without sunnies.

RAEN's mid-century-inspired shades are made by hand with your style and comfort in mind. Keep a pair in your purse and a pair in your beach bag for 100% UVA/UVB protection with a 200% chance of making the best dressed list.

7. Milk Makeup

This cruelty-free line of makeup is designed for quick, brush-free application -- perfect for busy fashionistas on the go (or on their way to the beach).  The Hero Salve is a great all purpose moisturizer for lips, face, and body; the Balm Tint has SPF 30 to protect your pucker.

8. Bandanas, Urban Outfitters

This is one summer accessory that spices up your look for the beach, the boardwalk, or the desert. Pick a timeless neutral or go for a bold pop of color for an unexpected twist on sun coverage.

9. Sun Bum Sunscreen

Sun Bum - named as one of the Environmental Working Group's best beach and sport sunscreens - has got you covered. Pick your SPF level (15-70) and your preferred format (lotion, spray, or stick), apply, and then go out and play. Summer only comes around once a year!

10. Fresh, Lip Treatment

Tinted lip treatments by Fresh use sugar, grapeseed oil, and SPF 15 to lock in moisture for 6 hours - plenty of time for a surf sesh in Malibu. Choose from a variety of alluring hues for ultra-kissable summer style.
