Beach Babe! Our Ultimate Summer Prep Guide

Summer is a time for sun, fun...oh yeah, and stepping up your beauty routine. When clothes get smaller, shoes get swapped for sandals, and the temperature and humidity levels skyrocket, our beauty routines need to adjust as well, to make sure that we look hot and keep our cool (despite the awkward thigh sweat and greasy breakouts that seems inevitable).
Thankfully, there are a ton of amazing professional treatments out there that can work wonders when it comes to getting summerfied — everything from chip-proof gel manis to perfect tans to lash extensions are only an appointment away. However, if you lack the cash to go pro for your summer prep, there is also a slew of innovative new products that can help you get similar results at home.
Click through for our full guide on getting summer-perfect from head to toe, from our favorite professional treatments to our latest product obsessions (note: while our treatment recommendations are NYC-centric, you should be able to find similar treatments in most major cities!). You'll be steaming up the beach — or, let's be real, the sidewalks — in no time.
