The Seasonal Swap
You're well into your warm weather wardrobe, so it's time to update your medicine cabinet. Here's what to stock (and what to store) during the summer months ahead.
Store: Heavy Facial Cream
Put away the goopy lotion for one formulated for summer. This one comes with just enough sunless tanner to gradually warm that post-winter pallor. But remember that you'll need some SPF eventually.
Kiehl's Facial Fuel, Healthy Bronze, $22.50
Store: Pomade, Gel and Wax
Switch out your heavy, sticky waxes and pomades that can often melt in the sun for a featherweight cream that conditions hair while keeping it neat.
John Allan's Smoothe, $15
Store: Bar Soap
Infused with rosemary and eucalyptus, this tingling, hydrating wash is ideal for sun-parched skin (or overworked muscles). It dissolves sweat and grime, but won't dry out skin like soap. Plus, it doubles as shampoo.
Jack Black Turbo Wash, $8 to $22
Store: Facial Scrub or Pre-Shave Oil
Since the chill isn't sucking your skin dry, a toner will clean and exfoliate your face with the added benefit of eliminating shine. For an added bonus, keep it in the fridge to relieve sunbaked skin.
Burt's Bees Garden Tomato Toner, $12
- If you haven't changed out your cologne for something lighter, here's our favorites from the season's latest crop.
