With all the time we spend in bathing suits, at the beach and in the sun, it’s essential to look and feel your best during the summer!

Though we might have some favorite products we swear by in the winter, come these hotter days in July and August, it’s important to switch up a few things.

For example, we must amp up the moisturizer — not only for our body, but our hair, too — and we definitely want to make sure we’re protecting our skin.

With that being said, here are 10 of our favorite beauty products we’re loving this season:

1. Technology Wipes. This might not be the most obvious summer skin saver, but think about all the germs that build up on your phone, computer, iPad, etc. while you’re out and about. A lot of times, the grime that you transfer from technology to your hands and then your face can cause major breakouts. Clean off your stuff with these antibacterial Well-Kept wipes.

2. Bright Blue Polish. This summer we’re obsessed with bright, electric blue nail polish like this one called “Butler Please” by Essie.

3. Sunless Self-Tanner. Instead of frying in the sun to add some bronze to your skin this summer, do it the safe way with a self tanner! Karora Cosmetics has a mousse that allows you to see what you’re applying without getting streaky or messy.

4. After-Sun Hair Mask. The sun, salt and pool water can really damage your locks this time of year. Make sure to add some moisture with an after-sun hair mask like this one by Aveda.

5. Firming Body Contour Cream. Trying to get rid of some pesky cellulite or just want to touch up troubled areas? A firming body contour cream is essential! This one by Nerium promises to help tone things up for sleeker, more youthful skin.

6. Charcoal Cleanser. Charcoal cleansers are a big trend right now because they help remove blockages under the skin without stripping it of it’s natural hydration. We’ve tried this one by Michael Todd, and we’re loving it!

7. Facial Wipes. After a day of sweating in the sun — especially if you’re wearing makeup — there’s no better feeling than taking it all off with a good makeup-removing, cleansing wipe. This pack by Giovanni Eco Chic Cosmetics contain cucumber and antioxidants to help soothe and combat skin damaging.

8. Touch of Color Blush. Summer is a great time to go makeup-free, but if you want to add a bit of color to your cheeks, this Jordana blush stuck is perfect for a quick on-the-go touch up.

9. Renewal Moisturizer. Just like your hair, the sun and being in the ocean or pool will dry out your skin. This DNAEGF Intensive Renewal moisturizer helps repair the skin’s natural renewal process with optimal hydration to fight against aging.

10. Restoration Serum. This Palmetto Derma Collagen Boosting and Restoration Serum will not only rejuvenate the skin, but also help protect it against the sun’s rays during the summer.
