Sun, heat and wind can really do a number on our skin—particularly our lips. The KNC Beauty All-Natural Collagen-Infused Lip Mask, my summer savior, is the perfect way to show my lips some love. The soothing formula—a mix of rose flower oil, cherry extract, and vitamin E—keeps my lips soft by amping up the hydration and locking in moisture. It’s gained a cult following, popping up in the pre-red carpet beauty routines of Emma Stone and Kim Kardashian. Not blessed with a pillow-y pout of your own? The cute lip-shaped mask (place it over your mouth for 15 minutes) is infused with collagen to improve your pucker.
Come summer, we all shed the camouflage we call clothes—and that means upping out moisturizing game. My go-to is One Love Organics Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum. A few spritzes of this decadent, all-natural mist, right after I get out of the shower, leaves me feeling refreshed, and my skin feeling soft and smelling of gardenias. I smooth it on my chest and arms before a special dinner or event for a dewy glow. It’s also the gift that keeps giving—literally. Hillary gave me a bottle for my birthday after she was gifted by a friend. Some secrets are simply too good not to share with friends.
This ankle-length Viri Dress by Flagpole Swim is my must-have apres-swim attire at any beach locale. Made from stretch jersey—which flows over curves, without getting too clingy—it’s chic and un-coverup-y enough to take me from surfside to margaritas with friends. Add a pair of strappy sandals and I’m pulled together in, like, five seconds flat. More happiness: This ingenious little number is made of a quick-dry Italian fabric that has built-in SPF50 sun defense. I've never worn it without getting at least one compliment.
And you thought your yoga instructor had some crazy-mad contortions! For women who want options, the versatile MB Wrap Top Bikini by Sara Cristina is manna from heaven. The ingenious design lets you customize the shape by turning the top into (at least) five different styles—including strapless, halter, and asymmetrical over-the-shoulder—in the chicest way possible (no grappling with skinny straps to go bandeau!). Amazing for concealing pesky tan lines or streamline packing for a weekend at the beach.
