Carefree Summer Inspo

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

"My beauty route is minimal—I prefer to keep it natural. I love the brand Eminence, and I use the Stone Crop Gel Wash and hydrating toner. Since I'm always in the sun or on a plane, moisturizer is huge for me. I love La Mer.

When it comes to my hair, I'm big on overnight masks or just straight-up coconut oil. It's best on dry hair—only on the ends, as it can be difficult to wash out. I even slather my hair with coconut oil whenever I can before going in the ocean to protect it."

Air-Dry Your Hair

"Perfect mermaid beach hair is the biggest surfer-girl myth. Honestly mine is usually very out of control and knotted! I definitely need to apply products to tame my hair after a surf session. Once I get the knots out, I let it air-dry so it's naturally wavy. A little braid in the front is a go-to."

Keep Skin Glowing

"I can't leave home without applying sunscreen in the mornings. In the evenings, I wash my face twice—once to remove makeup and sunscreen, and again to clean out my pores."

—Heidi Merrick

Keep Makeup Minimal

"For my daily routine, I use a Trish McEvoy tinted moisturizer, Clinique highlighter stick on my cheekbones and Blinc Mascara. The best concealer I've ever used is RMS. Overall, I like to keep my makeup routine simple and natural."
