As we dive into the summer months, searching for lightweight beauty products that do not make your skin feel sticky or uncomfortable becomes a top priority. We’ve got you covered with a selection of products that are ideal especially for the scorching weather: a barely-there sunscreen lotion, a dark spot serum that also works as a light moisturizer, and even a luxurious hair perfume that’s guaranteed to boost your mood. Read on for our staff’s latest beauty finds.
While you’re at it, our editor has found the perfect nail polish color for the summer.
EADEM, a recently launched beauty brand for melanated skin, tackles hyperpigmentation with its hero product, the Milk Marvel Dark Spot Serum. Harnessing the power of ingredients including niacinamide and vitamin C to fade dark spots, a common problem for non-white skin, the serum doubles as a lightweight moisturizer. After using the product twice a day for one month, I’ve noticed several dark patches on my face (a consequence of picking at blemishes) have significantly lightened. – Alexandra Pauly, Editor
Here’s a product that my dermatologist recommended to me while I was trying to treat some stubborn breakouts. A sunscreen specifically formulated with sensitive skin in mind, La Roche-Posay‘s oil- and fragrance-free Anthelios SPF 50+ Facial Sunscreen is ultra-light, quick-absorbing and most importantly, non-pore-clogging. Even better, with an invisible matte finish, the product helps prep and protect the skin without leaving any pesky white marks. – Teresa Lam, Features Editor
One of South Korea’s trendiest lifestyle and beauty brands, NONFICTION is loved for its aesthetic packaging and minimalist branding. Among its popular products is the hand cream, a vitamin E-rich formula that arrives in a white and green tube. Comprised of shea butter and vegetable oil, the Gaiac Flower cream boasts a woody aroma with notes of amber and musk, as well as gaiac wood and vanilla. – YeEun Kim, Associate Editor
Although I love spritzing perfume onto my wrists every time before heading out, Byredo’s hair perfume has definitely changed my routine this summer. Spraying fragrance into the hair allows the scent to linger for longer and gives you a fresh feel all day long. “Blanche” is a scent that reminds you of the smell of laundry drying under the sun, with a base of musk and sandalwood and notes of peony and rose centifolia. – YeEun Kim, Associate Editor
