If you have little people in your life, summer is also a time of family travel, swimming and intense sun and heat exposure. And our skin and hair can pay the price. Here is a collection of ways to help you look fabulous as you launch into all things summertime.

Summertime means running after, entertaining and traveling withour troops. A lot. And at the end of a late night, it’s easy toblow off our skincare routines.

One of my favorite ways to ensure clean and clear skin duringthe sweaty summer months is with Garnier’s Refreshing Removercleansing wipes. Just a few simple swipes and your skin is cleansedand hydrated. You can even use them on your eyes. (They’re mymust-have travel “cleanser,” as well.)

You know when you leave a beautiful spa and wish you could takea piece of it home with you? Well, now you can. I recently visitedthe spa at the Peninsula Hotel to try some of its most excellenttreatments and got to sample a few potions from its product line aswell. Here are two of the products I adored the most (and that nowsit on the side of my tub).

Exfoliating Body Polish-This body awakening
scrub enlivens your body with apricot seed kernels and gently
sweeps dull cells clean away. It’s all spearminty, too, which cools
and refreshes, while aloe vera hydrates, nourishes and conditions.
Your skin will feel like a baby’s (very clean) bottom.

Pink Hair and Scalp Mud-This mud for the noggin
is made from mineral-rich red clays that leave hair soft and smooth
as silk. The red clays stimulate circulation to help strengthen and
promote healthy, manageable hair. It’s a jar of awesome for your
sun-damaged locks.

Both products can be found at the Peninsula Spa, or order by phonefor home delivery. penisula.com/Chicago or (312) 573-6860.

favorites for summer hair and skin and here are her top three
picks.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hair Spray

“If your hair needs help in the volume department, spritz thismiracle worker at the roots before blow drying. It’s not sticky andnever falls flat. $35”
