Multi-Purpose Summer Beauty Products

These products do double-duty, protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays and spiffing up your face, lips, and nails.

When it comes to protecting myself from the summer sun, I don't play around! The sun's rays can cause skin aging and worst of all, skin cancer, so needless to say, it's important to shield yourself all year-round. To keep my skin safe, I've fallen in love with these four products. In addition to sunscreen, I apply them daily.

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream ($7) — Available in five different shades, this eight-in-one beauty balm is perfect for the heat. Light on skin and enriched with SPF 30, it brightens and leaves your face oil-free all day. You'll forget you’re wearing it, but wonder why you look so damn good!

Benetint Lip Balm ($20) — Protecting your lips with SPF 15 while giving them a rose-tinted smooch, this lip balm works for day and night. Wear it sheer in the office, and dark for date-night.

Eucerin Daily Protection SPF 15 Moisturizing Body Lotion ($10) — This non-greasy formula will keep your skin buttery soft while fighting off the sun's rays. The longer you use it, the smoother your skin will begin to look.

Dermelect ME Nail Lacquers ($14) — Strengthening nails while protecting them against UV rays, this lacquer deflects sunglight, guarding against chips and fading. Infused with pure protein and vitamins to repair weak nails, a bottle is all a girl needs for a fresh manicure.
