The official first day of summer is quickly approaching, though it already feels like summer has begun. In order to get ready for summer 2020, we have created a list of 5 summer essentials that everyone needs this summer.
Supergoop is one of our fave beauty brands lately, and their sunscreen has really been saving us during these past few sunny days. We’re obsessed with the face "Unseen Sunscreen,” but you can’t go wrong with any of their products. The “Unseen Sunscreen” goes on sheer, it’s super thin, and it’s scentless. All things you wouldn’t typically expect with a sunscreen, which makes it so much better. You can even wear makeup on top and you won’t even feel the difference!
You may have never really thought too much about your water bottle, but after you get this one you’ll understand what the rave is all about. It comes in a variety of sizes (we recommend 32oz or more for maximum hydration), colors and designs. It’s insulated so it keeps your water cold, even on the hottest days. One of our favorite parts is that it has a straw lid, which is leak proof. Water bottles with straws are the best, trust us! It’s also super durable so you don’t have to worry about dropping it and breaking it. We are staying hydrated this summer, ladies!
3. Denim Shorts
You really can’t go wrong with any pair of denim shorts, from cutoffs, to cuffed, to Bermuda shorts, and so much more. The possibilities are endless! We love all denim shorts, obviously, and you can check out our site if you need a new pair, but lately we’ve been into the Bermuda shorts trend. They’re comfortable and stylish, and you can throw them on with anything to dress them up or down. You’ll be the chicest looking gal wherever you show up!
Waterproof mascara is an every summer essential. Whether you’re swimming, working out, or you just get sweaty, nobody wants their mascara running down their face. Right now we're loving the Beauty Bakerie Eyelash Icing Mascara. It’s one of our fave Black-owned beauty products. It adds length and definition without fake lashes. And how cute is the packaging?!
5. Wave Spray
We’re all about wearing your hair natural and keeping it healthy! One product that adds a little something to your natural look is wave spray. It’s perfect in the summer for after the beach, or even to look like you just came back from the beach. It adds texture and volume to your natural hair and it’s so easy to use. We love the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, but all saltwater-based sprays are great.
