There’s no time better than summertime to revamp your beauty routine! Our skin and hair can take a beating from the heat and ocean/pool water. It’s also the perfect time to add in some bright pops of color (my summer favorite is peach).
But good quality beauty products don’t have to be full of chemicals and icky fillers. Below is a list of my favorite natural beauty products for some summer fun!

Luminance Skincare Rosewater
Luminance Skincare is by far my favorite skincare brand, and their rosewater spray is no exception! Made of only rose petals and water (like it should be!) this toner balances the pH of your skin. Not only does it feel wonderful after being in the summer heat, it’s good for you too! And did I mention it smells heavenly?
Badger Hair Oil
My hair tends to get dry on the ends during the summer months, and this hair oil has been a tremendous help in combatting that. It’s packed full of nourishing oils like the infamous argan oil, and my mane seems to just drink it right up! I’m left with shiny, oh so soft locks. Be careful though, a little goes a long way.
Peppermint Oil Spray
I don’t know about you, but I can get overheated pretty easily. A while ago, I tried putting peppermint oil on my skin and neck after hearing it was helpful for bringing a fever down. I figured, if it works for fevers, it has to work for plain ole heat and I put it on undiluted. And oh boy did it ever! I had put on too much and it gave me the chills for an hour or so, not even a blanket could warm me up! That’s why you should learn from my mistakes and dilute in a nice spray bottle for easier application.
Mineral Fusion Nail Polish
Good lookin’ nails can pull any outfit together. But all of those chemicals in different polishes (like formaldehyde, eek!) make me a little nervous! That’s why I was so excited when I found this nail polish in my local Whole Foods. While it’s free of all those scary fillers, it says on just as well, if not better, than normal polish! Like I said, I love peach colors for summer, especially in nail polish.
I’ve tried several brands of natural deodorant before settling on this one. It actually works! At least for me, I know that everyone’s body works differently when it comes to alternative products. That being said, I highly recommend that you give it a try! My favorite scent is the vetiver version, I love me some vetiver.
Gabriel Cosmetics Blush
Oh Gabriel Cosmetics, let me count the ways. If you haven’t already tried this nontoxic and gluten free (yay) makeup company, or their other more sparkly line, ZuZu Luxe, put it on your to-do list. Then, move it to your to-done list because seriously. Great staying power, beautiful colors (hello again, peach), and a wide variety to choose from. To compliment your summer glow, I suggest you try some of their blush, it’s my go-to!
Persian Garden Perfume
Natural perfumes are kind of hard to come by, especially ones that don’t smell just plain funky or much too ordinary (has anyone else realized that orange seems to be a pervasive scent in natural beauty products?). This perfume is the ultimate exception. Rich, exotic, and with a slight quality that I can only describe as mysterious, I think Persian Garden is my new signature scent.
So there you have it, my summer natural beauty essentials. But of course, don’t forget to wear sunscreen! I didn’t include any on this list because I have yet to fin a natural one that I like. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
