From that sun-kissed glow to that perfectly messy hairdo, summer is all about the fresh-off-the-beach and out-of-the-sea look.

Achieving the Victoria’s Secret perfectly tousled beach waves and stunningly highlighted skin unfortunately requires a little more effort than actually just lounging on a beach for hours – although, what a life it would be if it were that easy!

So we bring to you our Beach Bombshell Beauty routine, so we can all rock that beach bum look wherever we are!


The sun’s UV rays are intense in the summer and can take a toll on our skin. It’s so important to apply sunblock every morning and reapply throughout the day, especially if you’re out and about under the rays.

There are different types of sunblock for different types of skin.

I use Hawaiian Tropic’s Silk Hydration Weightless Face sunscreen for my shoulders, chest, and face, and Hawaiian Tropic’s Sheer Touch for the rest of my body.

If you have highly sensitive skin, skincare brands like La Roche-Posay and Dermalogica have face moisturizers with high SPFs.

We often forget that our lips can tan and burn in the sun like the rest of our body. Carry a lip-balm with an SPF in your purse, your pout can thank us later! Blistex and Burt’s Bees are great options for aiding chapped lips.

Moisturizing is important in the summer to keep our skin from dulling and drying out. Nivea Soft is my go-to body & face moisturizer.


Who doesn’t love a tan? That bronze-y goddess look that appears so effortlessly chic!

I have to stress, to achieve your perfect glow, PUT ON THAT SUNSCREEN! It is way better than risking a burn and it will help you achieve a more even, less blotchy colouring.

Bali Body has some great bronzing lotions and shimmering tanning oils if you’re lounging on the beach or out on a poolside patio and wan’t that extra-sexy summertime shine. BUT be careful when applying these as even a small smug can be quite noticeable on a light coloured bikini! Trust me, I know from experience.

For a quick dose of colour before hitting the streets, St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse is a great fast drying self-tanner that won’t have that artificial tanning lotion smell.


My natural hair is more straight than wavy and rarely behaves the way I want it to fresh out of the shower. When I’m vacationing somewhere tropical and am in the ocean, the salty water adds a lovely texture that makes it easier to style, more voluminous, and gives it that more natural beach vibe.

To channel this vacation hair everyday, I use sea salt texturizing spray – Herbivore Botanicals Sea Mist.

Spray the mist into your luscious locks after showering and massage thoroughly. I blow dry my roots and let the rest of my hair naturally dry if I have the time. Once it’s dry, depending on what I’m in the mood for, I may add in a few big and bouncy loose curls using a large barrel curling iron or leave it be. If I’m in a rush, I simply blow dry my hair with a round bristle brush, add in a bit more texture spray, few extra waves, and I’m on my way.

I. LOVE. VOLUME… and am all about teasing my hair to further channel that bombshell vibe. I simply backcomb the back 1/3 of my head and apply extra-hold hairspray to the roots. Try to wash or brush out the teasing knots and spray at night, using a good conditioner to elevate some of the damage that can be caused from too much heat, product, or styling in general. Also, ensure you give your hair a break if you can this summer, it needs a couple days off just like you to reboot, refresh, and keep healthy!

Now get out there bombshells and slay all day…and night!
