Delicious Living's personal care editor rounds up a couple of her favorite natural sunscreens, along with a few other beauty picks to tote on your next summer adventure.

The heat embraces you, the grass snuggles with your toes … the chlorine harasses your tresses, sun pounds at your skin. Summer is an energizing time of year, but it also comes with pesky annoyances that can take their toll on your skin, hair and nails. Luckily, there’s a natural beauty product for that! Of course, my one must-use beauty product for summer is sunscreen, so I’ve rounded up a couple of my faves, along with a few other beauty picks to throw in your (organic cotton) tote on your next summer adventure. 

Goddess Garden Face the Day Sunscreen & Firming Primer

I’ve been applying this lightweight skin and sun product before I leave the house every day—whether I plan to be catching some rays or not. With a high, 19 percent concentration of zinc oxide, I know it will keep my skin safe; but unlike some screens, it’s not thick or gloppy. Get this: it actually feels smooth and nourishing on my face thanks to ingredients like aloe and avocado oil, making it not just my daily sun care, but my daily skin care, go to. Oh, and it’s a Delicious Living beauty award winner, too. Bam. 

 

Kopari Coconut Sheer Oil

I love, love, love me some coconut oil—and its healthy fats love me right back, whether I’m cooking with it or slathering it on my hair and body. While I’m never opposed to pulling some Dr. Bronner’s out of my pantry as my evening deep conditioner, this product from Kopari is more practical for beauty aficiondos. Manufactured to be a sheer, lightweight oil dispersed with a dropper, it’s ideal for daily, nongreasy application to skin or hair, as opposed to a deeper treatment. Adding a few drops to my hair has become a daily ritual!

Acure Fragrance-Free Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes

I take a lot of impromptu mountain getaways trips over the summers (Colorado, you rule!), so it’s nice to have a no-fuss option for keeping dirt and grime out of my pores. These wipes are my favorite option so far and are great for a quick body clean, too. Truly fragrance free, they’re both cleansing and nourishing and about all I need when I’m hitting the road for a long adventure-packed weekend.

INIKA Organic BB Cream

This is officially my beauty go-to for summer evenings. Instead of being weighed down by powder or liquid foundation when temps heat up, I find that this luscious yet delightfully light lotion is all I need. Chock full of minerals and antioxidants from plant ingredients, it’s a silky primer, moisturizer and foundation all in one.

Badger Naturally Unscented Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide

What to say, other than: This stuff works. For years, Badger has been committed to creating some of the safest and most effective sunscreens out there—and I am a total believer. I don’t head out of the house during the summer without a bottle in toe. With a base of plant ingredients, including sunflower seed oil and seabuckthorn fruit extract, it contains 18.75 percent zinc oxide and is seriously bad-@%* when it comes to defeating harsh rays.
