Warmer weather means enjoying time outdoors, and the last thing you need is a complicated beauty regimen to bog you down. To make the most of your summer days, choose no-fuss products that save time.
In this season of bare fashions and footwear, nails are on display more than ever. For fans of long-lasting gel polish who hate driving to a salon to change colors, Cutex has introduced an easy at-home solution.
The Cutex Gel Polish Removal Kit includes remover infused with soy and botanical oils, cuticle cream, foil wraps, a buffer and a birch wood stick.
The kit is $9.99 at select Meijer stores, including those at Hamburg and on Reynolds Road in Lexington. Online, go to Cutexshop.com or Drugstore.com.
When outdoors, sunscreen is a must. And the Bare Naked Body Mist from Kiss My Face not only blocks harmful UV rays with an SPF of 30 but hydrates with a sheer chemical-free spray featuring vitamins C and E, green tea, olive oil and shea butter.
The multitasking product also features a special spray nozzle that works from any angle. It's $15.99 at Whole Foods and Kissmyface.com.
