Endless Summer in our Medicine Cabinet
In these brand-new northern tropics, beauty routines have to be fuss-free and sweatproof. These four low-maintenance products will give you an easy on-the-go glow.
Ditch lipstick in favour of Korres lip butter ($12) for a no-makeup look with polish. Some shades, including my favourite plum, can double as a cream blush.
Canadian favourite Consonant's new matte mineral sunscreen (15 mL, $36) in SPF15 goes on smooth, sans grease, white residue and questionable ingredients.
Hot off the press, Weleda's new all-natural body lotions (200 mL, $20) are rich in plant oils and packaged in a fancy pump bottle that promises to leave no lotion behind; the lightweight citrus version contains organic Sicilian lemons and smells bright and clean.
Use pure Moroccan argan oil as a multipurpose moisturizer for skin (it might even make your face less greasy) and hair (to tame frizzies); look at your local health food store for brands or try Essence of Argan (15 mL, $45). —Kat Tancock
