FAUX GLOW: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen ($43 at Lauramercier.com)
Skip the tanning this summer and stick to a healthy sunless glow. Laura Mercier created this perfect blend of skincare and makeup that hydrates skin and softens fine lines, gives skin a healthy ‘”no-makeup” look with a soft hint of colour, and protects the skin from the sun’s harmful, damaging rays with broad spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen.
TAKE IT ALL OFF: Proactiv + Skin Smoothing Exfoliator ($29.95 at Proactiv.com)
Sweat, sunscreen and seawater can irritate your delicate skin. To minimize breakouts and irritation, we love this medicated cleansing treatment. It kills acne-causing bacteria while also acting as a daily face wash, toner and exfoliator. With 2.5% micro-crystal, prescription-grade Benzoyl Peroxide, glycolic acid and an emollient rich moisture complex, it is luxuriously creamy but exfoliates to remove dirt, impurities and dead cells from the skin’s surface for a brighter, smoother, healthier complexion.
STOP THE SHINE: Anthony Instant Fix Oil Control ($28 at Anthony.com)
Instant Fix Oil Control absorbs excess grease on contact and keeps shine at bay all day. Instant Fix is formulated to help tighten pores for a youthful, shine-free finish and reduce breakouts caused by excess oil. Dab on an oily T-zone or apply evenly over the face for a clean-looking, matte effect. Anthony donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all products to support prostate cancer research.

Ever have your lipstick melt in your purse? No it’s no longer a problem with this long wear liquid lipstick.
