Summer Beauty Rehab

Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

$10

SheaMoisture

For Dry, Damaged Hair

It's normal for your hair to feel parched given the amount of UV exposure it's been through. Incorporating a hydrating mask into your hair routine at least once a week can work wonders.

Brown Sugar Body Polish

$39

Fresh

For Dry, Flaky Skin

Although SPF can help keep your skin smooth throughout summer, it isn't enough. Use a body polish to exfoliate flaky skin that may be a result of your fun in the sun.

Sake Brightening Hydrogel Mask

$8

Boscia

For Sun Spots

One of the worst things about summer is the risk of sun spots. If you already have dark spots on your skin, you know that sun exposure only exacerbates them. Try a brightening mask to keep them at bay.

Foot Patrol

$18

Bliss

For Dry, Cracked Feet

From days in hot sand to nights on the town, your feet can get a little rough during the summer. Exfoliate and moisturize to avoid cracking.

The Cure Cuticle Cream

$24

Deborah Lippmann

For Damaged Cuticles

Believe it or not, your nails can get the short end of the stick during the summer. Revive and smooth your cuticles with a repairing cream.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

$23

Amazon

For Chapped Lips

You should be wearing SPF on your lips every day. If you neglected it over the summer, start wearing a lip balm with UV-blocking qualities ASAP.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Facial Moisturizer

$15

Amazon

For Uneven, Patchy Skin

Rough patches are not a good look. Try a gel moisturizer for more advanced hydration than a typical lotion.

3D White Luxe Whitestrips

$44

Crest

For A Dull Smile

Even summer's lighter, cooler fare (blueberries, blackberries, iced coffee and tea) can take a toll on your teeth, causing discoloration. Brighten up for fall with some whitening strips.
