Summertime is the perfect time to travel. It’s a special time for family and loved ones to come together and visit places that are especially beautiful in the summer.
Hawaii is the perfect destination to take the entire family this season!
We recommend heading to Polo Beach in Wailea. It’s a perfect place to cool off with a nice swim or even snorkel with sea turtles unique to Hawaii. Plus, drop by Cos Bar Wailea (just a 4-minute drive away) to pick up all your beauty necessities!
If you’re not feeling the beach and want something more adventurous, head to Aspen.

Keep Skin Safe in the Sun
We should protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays daily, and make wearing sunscreen a habit. It’s best to protect your skin sooner rather than later to avoid the consequences that may follow if we don’t start applying.
Here are our top tips on keeping our skin safe in the sun.
- Wear sunscreen daily
- Always have SPF available
- Wear SPF-infused makeup
- Reapply SPF throughout the day
Nowadays, there are so many SPF-infused products that come in different forms from foundation cushions to setting sprays to powders...you name it. So, applying sunscreen no longer seems like a chore. The key to keeping your skin safe is applying sunscreen every day, no matter the season.
