The first day of summer starts tomorrow, June 21. What a perfect time for this summer beauty and style guide.
Don’t get beat by the long hot days this summer. Bicoastal beauty editor, Ning Chao, reveals what’s in her summer survival guide to keep cool, stylish and ready to take on the season.
Keep Cool On The Go
The new Starbucks Bottled Iced Coffee is a perfect grab-and-go refreshing drink for the dog days of summer. “I love it in the morning for a little wake me up or in the afternoon for a pick me up to get through the rest of the day,” says Ning. Starbucks Bottled Iced Coffee is the perfect blend of Starbucks coffee, 2% milk and lightly sweetened to deliciousness. Try all three flavors: Coffee and Milk, Vanilla, and Low Calorie Coffee and Milk (just 50 calories) for just $1.99 each at grocery, convenient and drug stores, or at your local Starbucks.
Feel Refreshed All Day
Scope Mouthwash is a must-have in Ning’s summer survival kit. “Its really important for me to have on hands all the time. Scope Mouthwash gives you long-lasting fresh breath that last five times longer than brushing alone.”
Get Shinier Hair
“Hair color fades and turns colors because of sun exposure. Blondes and highlights can turn brassy and brunettes and reds can fade. That’s why it’s important to use John Frieda Shampoo and Conditioner,” says Ning. The hair duo contains cool anti-fade technology and comes in three types, Sheer Blonde Everlasting Blonde, Brilliant Brunette, and Radiant Red. They are $5.99 each. John Frieda is also declaring June Blonde Appreciation Month and is inviting everyone to go to blondemonth.com to upload your vision of blonde. “It can be anything from a beauty beach sunrise to your best friend’s yellow Labrador to a beautiful yellow flower,” says Ning. So get creative because all top entries will be included in a permanent art installation. “You can turn your simple camera pic into a real work of art,” says Ning.
Master The Summer Bun
Want to finally figure out how to create the perfect summer bun? Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin makes mastering the bun super easy. “I’ve been using these Spin Pins for years and let me tell you they are a lifesaver. Just two pins do the work of 20 bobby pins. Twist your hair and spin one pin in the top and one pin in the bottom and they’ll hold your hair all day long,” says Ning. For a more dressed up updo, try Goody Spin Pin Luxe. “They come in beautiful metallic shades with special accents perfect for a special occasion like a wedding or a bridal shower,” says Ning.
