With social engagements and summer travel on the horizon once again, I’m giving more thought to the skincare and beauty routines that fell by the wayside during the past year. And while I’m excited to play with glam details like bold nails and glittery eye gel, I also don’t want to lose the peaceful, therapeutic approach to skincare and self-care that developed when I didn’t have anywhere to be or anyone to impress.
For me, that means taking time for salt scrubs and scalp serums in the shower, pampering myself with lip oils and clarifying masks afterward, and keeping beauty low-key with a multi-stick or just one or two pops of color at once. With this approach in mind, I’ve rounded up under-the-radar summer beauty finds from our favorite brands, from Black woman-owned lines like Butter by Keba to easy-on-the-wallet staples like e.l.f. Cosmetics. And there’s always a reason to treat yourself to a splurge, like Dr. Barbara Sturm’s line. Read on for everything you’ll want to stock your bathroom with this season.
