Get beach ready with Marc Anthony, Andrea Professionals, mark. and Dior

Beach hair is all about loose, soft, wavy effortless hair with body and texture - beach babies with easy and daily ocean access obtain it naturally, the rest of us have to work at it a bit and now it's easier to achieve thanks to:

Marc Anthony Dream Waves - Amplifying Shampoo - 250ml - $9.99 and Amplifying Conditioner - 250ml - $9.99 - prepares your hair for a full day of volume and texture, Amplifying Lotion - 340ml - $10.99 - for voluminous, defined waves or maximum fullness and bounce, Beach Spray - 150ml - $11.99 - offers super texture and waves.

The line offers conditioning polymers to help add body to limp hair, create an extra wavy bounce and block humidity for longer lasting style; hydrolyzed silk and provitamin B5 to add moisture and high shine; and powerful UV protectors to absorb ultraviolet light to save your hair from harmful sun exposure, dehydration and colour-fade.

With my super straight, fine and short bob, I figured these products would be a waste on me but strangely not. They don't add any wave because they aren't magic, but they are great for adding body and texture so that my hair will hold a sexy beach tousle!

Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmapix, Loblaws and other drug and mass retailers.

As for the body, now we need to de-hair, buff and colour with:
Andrea Professionals Face & Body Multi-Size Wax Strip Kit - 44 strips - $12.99 - includes three different sized wax strips designed to fit the area you are waxing perfectly. The kit includes: 20 body, 12 underarm/bikini and 12 face wax strips as well as a 4ml bottle of azulene oil which helps soothe and moisturize skin post-wax as well as instructions that include techniques for waxing various areas of the body and face.
mark. Just Buffing Body Exfoliator - 145ml - $12 - with a foaming formula that gently cleanses and exfoliates to reveal smoother, softer skin - with walnut and bamboo powder that polishes away rough and dry spots without stripping skin's natural moisture and a beautiful scent of citrus and sugar that will make you want to take bites out of yourself!

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca
Dior Bronze Auto-Bronzant Self Tanning Natural Glow Body - 125ml - $39 - in a rich cream form that melts into the skin upon application leaving it perfectly moisturized with a tint that enhances the natural skin colour immediately while the tan is developing.

For me a self tanner is one of those purchases that is worth splurging on, cheap products can offer unnatural looking colour which you most certainly don't want if you are going to be showing a lot of skin!

All you have to do now is grab your bikini and head for the sand (or the turtle pool in your backyard, your choice)!

  1. have you tried Dior for the face? I think I'm on my 10th tube :)

    however in terms of the Body one, I think St. Tropez Gradual Lotion wins!
