The secret to glowing skin? Exfoliating. The process helps slough off dead skin cells, so your skin can feel soft and smooth while you sport sleeveless tanks and dresses this summer. This sponge in particular is taking over social media and has over 14,000 verified five-star ratings from shoppers. It’s dual-sided, so you can use one side to scrub and the other to smooth the skin.
Dermatologists don’t recommend sunbathing during the summer months (or ever, really), since it can put you at an increased risk for skin damage. If you still want to achieve a sun-kissed glow, this lotion takes the guesswork out of self-tanning, Brach said. Since it is a lotion, there’s less of a chance that it will stain your sheets or clothing, and it doesn’t have a weird smell like other self-tanners tend to have. According to the brand, it develops gradually, so it might take a few applications to start seeing your desired shade — but it’s a plus for anyone that is new to self-tanning and wants to avoid waking up with an orange skin tone.
High humidity can cause frizzy hair and flyaways, but this portable hack can tame it down with just a few strokes. Whether you’re sporting an updo or want to tame a few unruly hairs, you can apply the waxy formula to smooth it all out. Over 13,000 verified shoppers gave the stick a perfect rating and it has also earned a 4.4-star rating for its lightweight feel.
This beauty hack was developed in the ’90s in California for use by surfers, which naturally lends it to being a summer beauty staple. You can use it all over your body as a protective balm to help avoid irritation and blisters from shoes, shorts, sneakers and even bathing suits. The formula is both sweat- and water-resistant, but it doesn’t feel like petroleum jelly.
The brand also makes a balm for your feet, which can help reduce friction when you wear sneakers or sandals.
Wrinkle patches are having a moment right now, but this brand predates the current trend — it was established in 1889. When you wear their paper patches overnight, they can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. According to the brand, the patches help to “train” our facial muscles to reduce their movements when we frown, concentrate or smile, which helps reduce the look of the lines and wrinkles we see when we make those expressions.
Estheticians, one Shop TODAY editor and thousands of reviewers love this facial roller for its soothing ad de-puffing qualities. You can store it in the freezer before you head to bed and then use it in the morning to help perk your skin up. If you’re dealing with sunburn, you can even add some aloe to it and roll it over the area for some relief.
