June 23, 2010

What do sun, salt water, chlorine, and humidity have in common? They’re all part of summer, and they can all wreak havoc on your hair and skin.

Today on Better.tv, we’re talking about the 2010 CEW Beauty Insider’s Choice Award Winners that can help you combat the summer elements – industry experts reviewed nearly 550 products to choose the winners

Bargain Sunscreen: Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion SPF 60+ with PureScreen ($10.99) won’t leave a yucky, chalky residue, and at SPF 60, even the fairest skin stays protected.

Splurge Sunscreen: The experts loved Bare Escentuals BareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen ($28.00) too. This all-natural sunscreen contains aloe vera and vitamins to give your sun-exposed skin an extra boost.

Bargain Haircare: L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care Moisture Shampoo ($5.97) has no scary chemicals (sulfate-free!), great lather-ability, and top-notch color protection – especially essential in the summer.

Splurge Haircare: Summer humidity can destroy all the work you put into a perfect blowout in seconds. Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo ($24) helps prevent frizz without heavy oils or silicones – they even have MIT scientists working on the stuff.

Bargain Lotion: Summer means shaving, swimming, and other activities that dry out your skin.  Arm yourself with Vaseline Sheer Infusion ($7.99), which keeps your skin moisturized to its deepest layers using a special molecule (yes, a molecule) discovered by the Vaseline engineers.

Check out our guides to other summer essentials, including the best hair removal products, waterproof makeup, and cheap swimwear.
