Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
Curly hair is generally high maintenance. While other hair types can usually get away with the wash-and-go style, curls require products to reach their full potential and thrive all day long. Because curly hair tends to be drier as a result from natural oils of the scalp not reaching the coils, curly-hair gals have to supplement with haircare products that hydrate, condition, and work wonders on strands. Whether you're looking for frizz-free hair creams that'll your ringlets in place or need a less stripping shampoo for your mane, we rounded up the 10 best hair products for curly hair with the help of naturalistas themselves. Scroll through to see the top picks.
First they brought back scrunchies, now iconic '80s claw hair clips are totally en vogue again—thanks to Alexander Wang's Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week show. New "It" model Kaia Gerber (a.k.a. Cindy Crawford's lookalike daughter) rocked a throwback banana clip with "Alexander Wang" stamped on it, specially made by Wang's team of designers for the event. "It's a cool way to put your hair up and not feel too lady," stylist Guido Palau said to Vogue. We thick-haired ladies are all for it! Alexander Wang's claw hair clip will be on sale in the fall, but for now you can twist up your hair in these 10 accessories that are already in stores.
The heat, the salt, the chlorine, the UV rays—your beauty routine has a lot to contend with in the summer. Curly haired ladies know the toll humidity can have on your locks, and salt from the ocean or chlorine in the pool can damage all hair types. Protection against harmful UV rays is crucial when you're out frolicking in the summer sun, but often thick sunscreens can cause greasy, oily skin and breakouts. Luckily Walmart has everything you need in your beach bag to transform from sunburned, frizzy haired beach bum to bronzed beachy mermaid, and you won't even have to dip into your frozen margarita budget.
