Transform your skin on-the-go with BioRepubic Lost Baggage. This hydrating under-eye mask infuses powerful ingredients into your skin to help fight against wrinkles, bags, and dark circles. It’s a carry-on essential — perfect for summer travel.
Rich in omega acids, antioxidants, and vitamin E, CosMedix Remedy Oil heals, moisturizes, and protects your skin. It’s made with safflower, Italian grape seed, avocado, and pomegranate seed oils to hydrate your skin from head-to-toe and is gentle enough for all skin types.
- Safflower oil infuses linoleic fatty acids and anti-inflammatory properties into the skin, helping to improve texture, redness, and irritation.
- Italian grape seed oil provides deep hydration to the skin. This lightweight oil rejuvenates damaged skin cells, giving you a more youthful and even-toned complexion.
- Avocado oil is an essential ingredient for calming irritated skin. It contains a multitude of vitamins, fatty acids, and proteins, which help to increase collagen production and protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
- Pomegranate seed oil contains the ultimate free-radical fighting ingredient: Omega 5. Omega 5 helps to heal your skin and minimizes signs of aging.

While the sun is a great source of vitamin D, it can also cause serious damage to your skin. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and in some cases, it can also cause skin cancer. Here are seven easy things you can do to protect your skin this Summer.
Most people assume that lip balms, butters, and glosses are the best way to protect your lips from sun exposure. Not so. While these options certainly nourish and hydrate your lips, a true sunscreen is what you need to avoid those harmful UVA/UVB rays. Without proper lip sunscreen protection — like our favorite from Supergoop! — you’re actually allowing more UV rays to pass through the protective barrier, causing your lips to dry out and age faster.
Supergoop! founder, Holly Thaggard, started this premium line of sunscreens after learning two frightening facts. First, skin cancer is the most common of cancer in the United States, and second, that 90% of all telltale signs of aging are due to over exposure to the sun. She decided to raise awareness about these issues and began creating sunscreens that are lightweight, never greasy, are easily absorbed, and most importantly, protect your skin. Supergoop! sunscreens have been clinically proven to neutralize free-radical agents and improve collagen production, along with reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation. But what truly sets Supergoop! a part from the mainstream sunscreens is that its products are oxybenzone-free. Oxybenzone is a harmful chemical that has been linked to hormone distribution and cell damage.
We’re loving Supergoop! Shine On Lip Screen. Formulated with grape seed extract, it delivers antioxidant protection and fights premature signs of aging. Just apply before or after your favorite lip products. $22
Another must-have? Supergoop! Fusion Lip Balms. Available in two different scents, this product is packed with shea fruit butter to lock in moisture and acai berries to combat harmful UVA rays. $10

From sunscreen to daily moisturizer, to a gentle (yet effective) body wash, we’ve got summer skincare on the brain. And rightfully so. With the sunny skies overhead, it’s as important as ever to apply a strong SPF, rinse off thoroughly after a long swim in the lake or the pool, and to hydrate consistently. To reinforce those summer-y feelings, we’ve selected the beauty products we can’t live without come summertime — and quite frankly, neither should you.
