    25 Beauty Products That'll Help Keep You Glowing All Summer Long

    Just because it's hot doesn't mean you can't look πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯, too.

    1. This daily moisturizer that's packed with light diffusers and soybean extract to help tackle things like uneven texture, blotchiness, discolouration, and dullness. A few swipes is all it takes to give skin a luminous boost. That's me, sans makeup, after using this magical stuff for about a week and a half!

    And it has built-in SPF, which is great for those of us who are forgetful about our sun protection.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.79.

    2. This loose mineral foundation that'll help make fine lines and imperfections a lot less visible β€” while also helping to protect your skin from the sun with a dose of SPF. Plus, it gives you light, breathable coverage and lasts for up to eight hours.

    Just remember that makeup doesn’t provide full SPF protection all on its own, so you should probably use other sun protection as well!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $37.99+ (available in three shades). More shades available at Sephora Canada.

    3. This minty relief mist, because the summer heat is no joke. Reviewers say the zesty formula helps to tackle common problems like stuffy noses, neck cricks, and itchy skin. Some even use it in the shower to maximize its refreshing properties!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.49.

    4. A tone-adjusting green primer that'll help minimize any redness you might have from spending just a ~teensy~ bit too much time in the sun. The mineral-infused formula helps tackle flakiness, blotchiness, fine lines, and large pores, plus it helps to absorb excess oil so your makeup stays put.

    5. This detoxifying body wash that not only smells fantastic, but uses detoxifying green tea and seaweed to make your skin feel extra clean.
