I am ready for summer. After a long, rainy winter and a slow start to warmer temps, I've never wanted a humid New York City summer more. As a beauty editor, the first sign of summer is when I start making smart product swaps for hot weather. Once it gets above 80ºF, I banish all full-coverage makeup and heavy creams and prioritize glowy skin, glossy lips, and products that make my humidity-sensitive hair more manageable. This summer, there are a few products I'll be prioritizing above the rest. Keep scrolling for all my favorite summer essentials.
Dr. Diamond's Instafacial is one of the most coveted facials out there. A-listers frequently get it right before an event to look their absolute best. It makes sense—the treatment is tailored specifically to your skin's needs and involves a laser, PRP injections, and micro-needling. Unfortunately, it's costly, and the waiting list is miles long, which is where Dr. Diamond's Metacine, his new skincare line, comes in. Instafacial Plasma is the next best thing to getting your own PRP put back into your face. You'll have smoother, plumper, more even skin after just a couple of weeks of use.
