Every summer, I get a vitamin infusion. Not an intravenous drip (though you can book one at theivdoc.com if that's your thing). I'm talking about a more holistic inoculation. First, there's vitamin D from the sun. Then I'm also getting more A's, B's, and C's from all the fresh fruit and vegetables at the farmers' market. But, most important, summer brings an influx of juicy, delectable beauty products packed with an alphabet's worth of goodness. This year, I'm glowing because of the vitamin C in Perricone MD's blush, Dr. Dennis Gross's setting spray, and brightening serums from Clinique and Sephora. Marc Jacobs Youthquake, a moisturizer with exfoliating pineapple water and antioxidant-rich dragonfruit and star-fruit extracts, is keeping my skin smooth. And my hair looks better than ever thanks to the B, C, and E in Peter Thomas Roth's shampoo. Finally, if you're in the mood to get crafty, I've got one more beauty hack for the season: Add an ingestible skincare supplement, like the ones from Dr. Brandt or Four Sigmatic, to fresh-squeezed juice, then freeze in molds to make ice pops. Not a bad way to get your RDA.
