10 Products You Need to Get Beach Body Ready for Summer
No, we aren’t about to push some infomercial-grade fitness DVD on you or extol the virtues of a crazy crash diet. Our beach body plan has much less to do with getting a six pack or fitting into your bridesmaid dress than it has to do with treating yourself to a little pre-summer pampering. To that end, we’ve compiled a list of 10 products that will get you feeling your best in time for summer vacay.
Vita Liberata 10 Minute Tan
The next time you want a litte glow, skip the pricey spray-tan and opt for this editor-endorsed self-tanner instead. The product allows you to shower just ten minutes after application, so you won’t have to hang around home waiting for it to dry — or worry about staining your clothes and bedsheets.

Mio Body Brush
For luminous, clear, and healthy-looking skin, incorporate an exfoliating body brush into your bathing routine. This one boosts circulation by gently buffing the skin, creating a blank canvas for tanning creams and body shaping lotions.
We’re deeming this bright pink polish—one of the best nontoxic nail polishes on the market, by the way—the color of summer 2017.
Clarins Masvelt Body Shaping Cream
Generally, we don’t find that body shaping creams make much difference. But this powerful, science-driven toner from Clarins is the exception. After a couple applications, our skin felt firmer and smoother, with a visible increase in skin radiance and texture.
After working out in dingy, windowless gyms and crowded fitness studios all winter, we welcome the opportunity to take our workout outside in the summer. And the Fitbit is a great (and fun) way to track your fitness levels and ensure you’re still staying on target with your goals.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Squats and dead-lifts not your speed? Get your derrière in tip-top form with this Brazilian bum cream—a rich, fast-absorbing lotion that uses guaraná, a native Amazonian plant whose fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet, to increase firmness and skin elasticity.
Bodyism Beauty Food
If the thought of sipping a blend of spinach, broccoli, and barely grass makes your stomach turn, Bodyism’s Beauty Food is for you. The supplement contains all of those good-for-you ingredients – plus Marine Collagen Peptides, green tea extract, aloe vera, beta-glucan, and more– but tastes delicious (really, it does) when mixed with water or blended into a smoothie.

What with travel plans, outdoor drinking, and more meals out, summer can be hard on your savings — which is why Baby Foot, an exfoliating foot peel that obviates the need for pricey pedicures — is a mainstay in our summer beauty kits. A bestseller on Amazon, the product uses fruit acid to boost cell turnover and reveal baby-soft skin.
Josie Maran Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub
This body scrub smells so heavenly, we look forward to using every time we shower. Plus, it leaves our skin super soft and oh-so-ready for shorts and spaghetti straps.
Shaveworks Pearl Souffle Shave Cream
The one downside of summer temperatures (and the corresponding shorter hemlines?) More time spent shaving — but not if you use this game-changing shaving cream. The luxurious product is formulated with Capislow to minimize hair growth, glycolic acid to exfoliate and reduce ingrown hairs, and Mediacalm to soothe and moisturize.
