Update! New Skin Care Launches You Need to Get a Better-Looking Body

Jul 19 2014 - 6:00am

We know you care about makeup [1] and hair in the Summer, but let's get real: the body may just be the most important part. There's no more time to procrastinate on your skin and body care routine because bikini season is here! Any day now you're going to head out to the beach, where 80 percent of your skin will be on display. That's why we've rounded up the best beauty buys that cater to perfecting your complexion from head to toe. Everything from wrinkle fighters to self-tanners and sunscreens can be found below, and all these launches are brand-new for Summer.

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush [2] ($90) is a huge move for the brand. While there are many electric cleansers on the market, this one has a unique oval shape that allows you to get into the smallest crevices. Get yours ASAP because they're selling out quick!

Yes to Coconut

We went nuts when we found out the next installment in the Yes to family was coconut. The collection includes a body lotion, a body scrub, a hair smoother, and more. But of course, the product to get is the face wipes [3] ($6, available this July).

reVive Light Therapy

Typically you have to see a dermatologist or splurge on an expensive device to experience the antiaging power of infrared beams. But soon the reVive Light Therapy ($69, available in July) device will be sold in Target. Target! The technology minimizes wrinkles and smooths out discoloration.

St. Tropez Self Tan Express

St. Tropez Self Tan Express ($54, available this July) always comes out with the best innovations to help us get that Summer glow. Their latest launch is a fast-acting tanner that works in hours, meaning that within one hour you can take a shower and never stain your sheets again.

Fendi Blossom

Reading the list of notes in Fendi Blossom [4] ($71-86) is like reviewing a bakery's ingredient list: pear, raspberry, and vanilla. The fragrance is inspired by sakura cherry blossoms, and the clean scent is light enough for day and night.

L'Occitane Roses et Reines

The L'Occitane Roses et Reines collection is packed with four different types of blooms to honor the four queens that inspired the aroma. Of all the pretty pink and floral-scented products, the gentle bath salts ($24, available July 30) are our favorite. It's time to start the tap!

Kahina Giving Beauty Glow Box

If using those hotel minis is so not your style, pack the Kahina Giving Beauty Glow Box [5] ($75) for your next vacation. It's got an scented body bar, body serum, and pure argan oil (which can be used all over).

Natura Bisse Diamond White SPF 50+

You need to be protected, and Natura Bisse's Diamond White SPF 50+ [6] ($97) gets the job done. The formula not only packs a hefty sun-protection number, but it also halts melanin production to minimize the appearance of dark spots.

Jergens BB Body Cream

So your legs aren't looking shorts-ready quite yet . . . it's time to turn to drugstore staple Jergens BB Body Cream [7] ($12). It's better than lotion and self-tanner because this product tones, hydrates, and gives gams a subtle glow.

Glamglow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment

The thought of masking your face with mud and oil might seem like a dirty experience, but it's actually great for your skin, which is why we were so jazzed about the debut of Glamglow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment [8] ($69). The mix is the ultimate in cleansing because it cuts through even waterproof makeup without leaving your complexion greasy.

Elemis Jasmine and Rose Milk Bath

Long days tanning at the beach, shaving, waxing, scrubbing — your body deserves a break! Soak in a tub with the Elemis Jasmine and Rose Milk Bath [9] ($74) as a postvacation treat.

Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+

We often forget to apply sunscreen during a day walking along the boardwalk, but this Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen Stick SPF 50+ [10] ($10) is the perfect size to fit in your purse or pocket. Plus, it's easy to put on over your makeup!

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Mademoiselle

This Summer, the cult favorite body oil by Nuxe [11] is coming in a limited-edition packaging. The coveted elixir is a concoction of almond, macadamia, and hazelnut oils. Now, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Mademoiselle [12] ($45) is housed in a chic collectible bottle. While this oil can be used on your face, body, or hair, we love to rub it on our knees and elbows to give dry spots extra hydration. It's also a skin-soothing postsun remedy.

Darphin Vitalskin Replumping Energic Cream

Just because it's vacation season doesn't mean you have a free pass to squelch on your skin care routine. The Darphin Vitalskin Replumping Energic Cream [13] ($72) energizes and refreshes your face after months of enjoying the outdoors.

Algenist Purifying and Replenishing Cleanser

You know the disgusting feeling you get after your makeup has practically melted into your pores (yuck!). That's when you need Algenist's Purifying and Replenishing Cleanser [14] ($26). It gets the job done without leaving your skin dried out.

Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel

Ole Henriksen's Ultimate Lift Eye Gel [15] ($61) has been revamped with even more de-puffing powers. The new product has more peptides to take down dark circles and bags after a long night of margaritas on the rooftop.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mask

Philosophy's Purity Made Simple Mask [16] ($25) is the skin care solution for women who are strapped for time. In just two minutes, you can get exfoliated, cleansed, and moisturized skin thanks to detoxifying sea salt and skin-smoothing marine extracts. Who can pass that up?
