Sakara HQ Spills All Their Beauty Secrets For Summer

We may be a strong band of women and men, manifesting the most nutrient-dense meals on the planet-- but we're also humans who have to deal with the sticky, muggy, scorching-- but still sexy-- summer in New York City. Below is a roundup of the products, practices, rituals and tricks we've nailed so we can look just as smokin' as the temperature outside. 

Erin

"I am obsessed with Verb's Ghost Oil! Perfect for hydrating hair again after too many long days at the beach. It's also great at taming frizz or flyaways from the NYC summer humidity."

 

Annie

"Cold showers - improves circulation, great for skin and hair, gives flushed, pretty glow, super refreshing (especially when you don't have AC)."

 

Samantha

"Something I cannot live without during the summer is the Coco Kind Collective set of 3. It has 3 lip balm size and shaped sticks of magic. MyMatcha is a moisture stick with matcha in it. I put it under my eyes every morning and night to get those puffs underneath away! The Macabeet tinted moisturizer gives my cheeks and lips a little color that the sun doesn't give me! And lastly, the turmeric stick is for spot on blemish treatment. With all the heat and sweat of NYC summer, I tend to break ouT and this turmeric stick is a natural remedy that helps so much! I have these on me at all times!!"

 

Sarah

"Keep hydrated by drinking at least half your body weight in ounces of water and always carry a face mist! I like the Rose Replenishing Mist from Pratima."

 

Leah

"Honey - I use straight up honey on my face + hair. It's an amazing humectant and mild exfoliant (from the enzymes) and leaves my skin plump and soft. Also, super helpful for acne (it's anti bacterial). I'll use it on the dry ends of my hair and because it is a natural (albeit mild) lightener it can really can help move that sunkissed summer hair look along :)" 

 

Jordan

"In the summer I love going sans makeup. My biggest priority is suncare -- both protection + hydration! I love Tarte's tinted moisturizer with SPF during the day and I slather organic coconut oil on my face every night. I stopped trying to tan my skin years ago to avoid sun damage, and for a bronzed look I've been experimenting with (chemical free!) self tanners."

 

Olivia

"My skin is oily and repels all makeup and perfume. It literally drops right off of my skin. No matter how much work I put into "getting ready" in the morning or before a night out, I always arrive home looking like Lindsay Lohan after a week-long bender.

I put most of my energy into skincare and nurturing my bare foundation so that when my makeup does inevitably fall off at least my complexion is clear. I'm currently l-o-v-i-n-g the Herbivore Blue Tansy face mask - I use it about once a week. My daily go-to's are Tata Harper eye cream which is nice and shimmery. My nightly go-to's are Sakara beauty chocolates (I swear by them!), Leahlani rose toner with Mario Badesceu caviar night cream."

 

Tyler

"I love using True Botanicals nutrient mist - so refreshing and clean!"

 

Jennifer

"If I had to pick... my favorite products are BeautyCounter Rejuvenating Day & Night Cream. I use these products every day. Also, I use a Glossier face mask every Sunday which is a great way to start my week and give my skin a break after long weekends in the sun."

 

Hannah 

"Running in and out of the subways calls for many spritzes of Wildcare's Palo Santo toner. And I always carry a packet of cordyceps or reishi mushrooms for my coffee, to give me a healthful, energetic boost."

 

Faye

"I'm not a big make-up wearer so a good (clean!) sunblock all day err'day and lots of water! I also love Ormedic's peptide moisturizer- a little goes a long way and it smells great :)."

 

Kirby

"Refrigerate your skincare!  Open my fridge and you'll find beautiful local veggies from my farm share, eggs eggs and more eggs, LOTS of flavored seltzer and...skincare products. My ride-or-die face spray is and has always been Mario Badescu's Rose Water Facial Spray with Herbs and Aloe. I keep a big one in the fridge and always throw a mini in my beach bag. I also store face and under-eye sheet masks in the fridge for a very refreshing home spa experience."

 

Eugenia

"Nothing works better than getting out of the city for a few days. The second my skin steps out of Manhattan and into fresh air, it clears up and looks extra hydrated and dewy. Perfect excuse for a weekend escape! You can blame me."

 

Michelle

"I have been using my friends new cream she makes called Manu organics - it’s all natural and made with just shea butter, coconut oil and a few other things. I’m obsessed. For my body, if I have been out in the sun for the weekend, I always make sure to use a body scrub in the shower, I am currently using the Cold Spring Apothecary one with turmeric and neem. But I really love the Herbivore coco rose one --the best."

 

And everyone's favorite tip for summer? No contest: S U N S C R E E N:

 

Scottie

"Less is more!  I find myself significantly toning down makeup + beauty routine in general in the summer since my skin seems to be happier and more naturally glowy from a little sun :)  I often just stick with sunscreen + lots of extra water for my beauty routine on most summer days!"

 Nicolette

"SPF!! Of course, sunscreen is important year-round, but I can't leave the house without some at least on my face, neck, and chest. My usual moisturizer has an SPF of 15, but I've been using a great, clean primer over it for the summertime that has SPF 30 for some extra protection. You'll still get a sun-kissed glow, while protecting your skin - then all you need is some mascara, and you're good to go!"

 

Erin

"I love being out in the sun but know how important it is to protect my skin at the same time. Suntegrity's tinted sunscreen for the face feels so light, and almost like a makeup/concealer rather than actual sunscreen. Highly, highly recommend it!"

 

Christina

"In the am: PCA SKIN Weightless Protection SPF 45 because it is super-strong but doesn't make my face feel oily."

 

Annie

"Sunscreen!  Every morning - face, neck, chest, and (can't forget) tops of hands!" 

 

Kirby

"Japanese sunscreen! I'm trying to be better about wearing SPF on my face every day now that I'm an actual grown-up lady (?). And if you've been paying attention to beauty and skincare trends even a little bit over the last few years, you know that Korea and Japan are way ahead of the curve. My current favorite for every day is called Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+ PA++++. It has a super light gel consistency, goes on completely clear, mixes well with makeup without pilling, doesn't make me break out and it has all those extra plus signs which I think means it will make me stay young and beautiful forever."
