While the rainy season may still be a ways away, the humidity can wreak havoc on our skin, leaving it dry, dull, and lackluster.

From lightweight moisturizers to haircare that tames frizz, these May must-haves will keep you looking and feeling your best, no matter the weather.


New Beauty Products to Try This May

For the Face

Excess oil production and clogged pores are at an all-time high with this muggy, warm weather. To keep your skin looking and feeling its best, it’s important that you adopt a consistent skincare routine that addresses these concerns. Incorporating gentle cleaners, exfoliants, and lightweight moisturizers can keep your skin balanced and hydrated to achieve that glass-skin look.

p.s. Please don’t forget about the sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful rays.


For the Hair

With May’s warm and humid weather in full swing, our hair can become a hot mess (pun intended). Frizz, dryness, and damage are all too common during this time of year. But fear not, my friend! There are ways to keep your locks looking luscious and healthy. Try using a nourishing shampoo and conditioner, and don’t forget to pamper your hair with a weekly deep conditioning treatment. And if you’re planning on soaking up some sun, protect your hair from those UV rays with a leave-in conditioner that contains SPF. With a little TLC, your hair can be the envy of all your friends this season.


For the Body

Our bodies can take a beating during this time of year. But don’t worry, there are simple ways to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Pamper your skin by using gentle body washes, moisturizers, and exfoliants to keep it balanced and smooth. And don’t forget to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays with daily sunscreen application. With a little self-care, your skin can feel healthy and radiant all season long.
