aloe vera hair mask

Hair Soother and Smoother

"We rely on aloe to soothe our skin after it's seen a little too much sun, and this aloe-infused mask treats parched hair the same way. It adds moisture to strands making them silky-smooth and basically heals split ends." – RR

reef-safe sunscreen

A Sunscreen That's Safe for You and the Environment

"We're all about reef-safe mineral sunscreens at BH (learn all about them!) and this one from The Detox Market is the best of the best. It's 100 percent natural with no chemical filters, and if you're not going into the water, it only needs to be applied once a day." – RR

powder spf

SPF Touch-Up

"I'm completely nuts about sun protection—especially when it comes to my face. Every day I apply both sunscreen and tinted moisturizer with SPF, and I'll be adding this SPF setting powder to the lineup. It's great for midday SPF touchups, and it reduces shine." – RR

natural deodorant

Natural Deodorant That Passed the Test

Post-Swim Lip Scrub

"Thanks to raw sugarcane grains, cocoa seed butter, and oils like almond and avocado, this scrub's ingredients work to condition lips while gently buffing away dead skin. I use it when my lips feel dry—like after a day in the sun. It makes them feel smooth and hydrated." – Alyssa Ball, assistant digital editor

Cocoiste Soft Lip Scrub, $22; 1luxbeauty.com
