Beach Beauty Routine: The 5 Clean Beauty Products You Need for Memorial Day Weekend

Beach Beauty Routine: The 5 Clean Beauty Products You Need for Memorial Day Weekend

As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, so do the calls for a shift in our beauty routines. If you’re anything like us, by summer we’re yearning for lightweight, breathable products that will keep us glowy and hydrated without being heavy, shiny, or just straight up oily. We’re about a clean, luminescent, healthy glow—not looking like a glowstick. And while so many clean beauty products can bring the oil without much else, we like to think that here at RMS Beauty, we’re able to bring the heat with a whole lot of nourishment.

So we put together our definitive guide for Memorial Day weekend; one that’ll help you fake and enhance that start-to-summer glow while ensuring you’re using high-quality, natural, clean ingredients that do your skin so much good while looking flawless too.

Summer Beauty Tips

A quick little breakdown of everything we suggest you keep in mind to beat makeup meltdowns.

  • Prep
    Prepping your skin before a day at the beach or strolling the boardwalk is crucial to a quality makeup look. Prep in this case means a clean, smooth base. We’ll get more into what kind of product that actually means in a minute, but in the meantime, it’s important to keep in mind that even if you’re just slathering on some sunscreen or throwing on a bit of tinted moisturizer, you don’t want to catch any flakes or dry patches—or potentially irritate already potentially irritated skin (a little too much sun, anyone?). So moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! 
    Try: Kakadu Luxe Cream
  • SPF, Always
    Sun protection is always a good idea, no matter the season. But during summer especially it’s positively crucial that you apply sunscreen an hour before you leave the house (whenever possible…we know it can be hard sometimes) and then every few hours thereafter. Zinc sunscreen doesn't need time to sink in since it works immediately to deflect rays, but applying your sunscreen before you get outside ensure a better, more even application. 

    Anything above SPF 30 is great, and a mineral-based sunscreen with Zinc Oxide is even better. Mineral Zinc is clean and natural, and blocks the sun’s harmful rays without potentially toxic chemicals. It works by sitting on top of the skin, so you’re not absorbing as much. 
    Try: Supernatural Radiance Serum Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30
  • Powder is Your Friend
    Rarely do people mention using a powder when heading to the beach or popping out for a summer’s day, but we do. That’s because powders absorb excess oil and moisture, helping to keep your look shine-free while still staying dewy. Now don’t get us wrong, you don’t want to cake on the powder, you just want to blot it on the parts that get the most oily—your t-zone (forehead and chin) and edges of your nose, for example.

    You can pick any kind of powder you like, but we’re fans of translucent ones that don’t change your look all that much. And Rose-Marie, our founder and a master makeup artist, likes to use the puff that comes with powders. She says it deposits just the right amount of powder, and then you can buff it out with a brush.
    Try: UnPowder
  • Dewy, Never Heavy
    Obviously heavy products are never the vibe in summer. Light, dewy looks are what we’re going for, and you can get that with skin-loving, oil-or-cream-based products, a flick of mascara, and pops of color.
    Try: Luminizer

Our Favorite Clean Products for Summer

For the beach and beyond.

A Lightweight, Tinted Sunscreen

First on our list is obviously the SuperNatural Radiance Serum SPF 30. It’s different than your traditional sunscreen, because it applies like a tinted serum, but seriously protects and is ultra luminizing. That’s why we say this super lightweight, nourishing sunscreen, glows, protects, and corrects—all in one. And, of course, is one of those sunscreens you’ll want to reapply, time and time again.

It’s formulated with complexion correcting soft-focus technology and powered by GlowPlex™, a complex of natural peptides such as Quinoa Seed Extract, Niacinamide and Pea Extract. The subtle, soft-focus radiant filter with a hint of tint nourishes, while non-nano zinc oxide protects from the sun’s damaging rays. And the best part is that it smoothes skin and boosts radiance instantly and over time.

    A Multitasking Balm

    What is there not to love about our cult classic, fan-favorite Lip2Cheek pots? Our bestselling, creamy multitasker is perfect for popping in your beach bag and stashing for when you need a flush of color. Our unique formula brings together Wildcrafted Buriti Oil plus Shea and Cocoa Butters to seal the deal on lush lips and naturally blushed cheeks. Each shade is concentrated, so a little goes a long way to create youthful sheers or more intense color.

    There’s seven shades, and for summer, we’re huge fans of all of them, but particularly Smile, a modern, sheer, poppy coral with a 50s flair, and Modest, a salmon pink that sheers out to a bit of a bronze. 


    A Buildable Bronzer

    Our brand new, just-dropped ReDimension Bronzer takes its cues from our bestselling ReDimension collection, which includes our proprietary Gel2Powder technology, a sugar-derived wet powder technology that combines a creamy texture with a long-lasting 3D finish. Plus, it’s a talc-free, long-wearing formula that bronzes, enhances, and glows. The ultimate two-in-one complexion enhancer combines the nourishing texture of a cream with the light-reflective finish of a luminous powder to enhance the cheeks and face with a golden glow. 

    All four shades are buildable and blendable. Beachwalk Betty is a sweet kiss of sun with neutral, nude undertones (great for fair skin), Malibu Muse is a golden hour glow with warm amber undertones (great for light to medium skin tones), Tan Lines is an endless summer tan with neutral undertones (for medium skin tones), and Bikini Beach is a deep bronze with a slight terracotta base (for medium to deep skin tones). 


    An Undetectable Concealer

    Our UnCoverup Concealer is so much more than just a concealer... This 3-in-1 concealer, color corrector and tinted moisturizer covers dark circles, blemishes and redness; offers buildable sheer to medium all-over coverage; and combines with Beauty Oil for a tinted moisturizer effect that’s perfect for long summer days. 

    It’s formulated with skin-loving clean ingredients like Coconut Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, and Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, so it won’t ever dry you out, and is a nourishing, concentrated cream formula that won't settle in pores. Wear it your way: build it up or sheer it out.
