A: First, prevent chapped lips by using a balm that contains SPF and nourishing ingredients such as squalane, petrolatum, castor seed oil, shea butter and sunflower seed oil. A great choice for preventing and treating chapped lips is Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm, which contains a blend of squalane, caster oil and petrolatum along with thermal spring water to soothe. Another great option is Elizabeth Arden Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 20, which protects against UVA/UVB and also contains petrolatum caster seed oil and shea butter.

A: People with particularly sun sensitive skin should use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. What most people don’t know is it’s not just the SPF rating that is important when using sunscreen, but it’s how often the formula is applied. Always apply sunscreen at least every 2 hours when outside all day. Those with fair skin, however, are better off reapplying sunscreen every 1-2 hours. Try a product such as Avene High Protection Cream SPF 50 – which is great for those sensitive to chemical sunscreens – or Supergoop SPF 40 Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen with Olive Polyphenols – which is hypoallergenic and extra hydrating.

A: To avoid potentially irritating ingredients, choose products that are non-greasy, oil-free, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic. Consider mineral based products, such as Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Pressed Mineral Powder SPF 20 - Golden Glow or Too Faced Amazing Face Foundation - Vanilla Crème, which contain mild ingredients and absorb oil.

A: According to Harpers Bazaar, this season’s on-trend shades of summer polish are warm-weather inspired: sangria red, cotton candy pink, ocean blue and shimmery sand. Try out a few of these stylish hues with the SpaRitual Mini Lacquer Kit, which includes creamy green, turquoise shimmer and golden sparkle.

A: Warm weather can stimulate your scalp to produce excess sweat and oil – resulting in greasy, lifeless locks. To reduce shine and refresh your hair, keep a dry shampoo on hand. A top pick by Glamour and Allure, Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk instantly absorbs oil and softens hair for a freshly washed look – no water required.
