Spring is in the air and summer is just around the corner. The change in season is definitely welcome.  However, the warmer temperatures and higher levels of humidity make it necessary to change some of the beauty products you are using.  Heavy creams and oily products can be retired and switched out for lighter products.   I recently went shopping with this very purpose.  Here are the must have beauty products that I picked up to better suit me in the spring and summer months.

  • Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé

This is the lightest body cream I’ve ever tried.  It completely absorbs into the skin immediately.  It leaves absolutely no oily residue on the skin surface.  It is free of mineral oil, artificial fragrance, and parabens.  The soft baby powder scent also doesn’t clash with any fragrance I wear.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.

  • Moom Sugar Based Hair Removal Kit

Sugaring is a natural, gentle alternative to removing unwanted body hair.  These ready-made kits are user-friendly.  It is organic.  The results are long lasting.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.

  • Waiora Refining Microderm Treatmant

Revive your skin’s natural healthy glow by exfoliating all of the dead cells away that have accumulated over the winter.  This is the gentlest facial exfoliator I have used.  A treatment twice a week keeps pores refined resulting in a porcelain-like complexion.  CLICK HERE to take a closer look.

Getting bikini ready can be a very hairy situation.  Removing unwanted hair is a must when it comes to looking your best.  There are pros and cons to each method of temporary hair removal.  Shaving is fast and inexpensive, however, the stubbly regrowth can appear within hours.  While waxing may buy you more time before regrowth appears, the process is frankly a form of torture.  Depilatories are painless and effective, nevertheless, absorbing these harsh chemicals into your dermis on a regular basis can lead to detrimental skin damage.

So what’s a hairy girl to do?

Sugaring is an often overlooked hair removal technique.  This technique originated in ancient Egypt and can be used on all areas of the body.  A paste made of sugar is applied to the skin in a rolling motion.  When removed, it takes the unwanted hair with it.  Generally, sugaring results lasts between 4-6 weeks.  It is also less painful than waxing because the sugar only adheres to the hair and not the skin and is easily removed with water.  Therefore, there is no unnecessary tugging of the skin.  Best of all, it is all natural.

The hosts of the TODAY SHOW, Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford, faced the camera in the raw.  After taking a challenge from Rosie O’Donnell, the duo faced the cameras wearing absolutely no makeup. Kathy Lee expressed deep feelings of vunerability.  We, at Lilikoi Looks, think the ladies looked as beautiful as ever.
