Keep Bugs at Bay Without "That" Smell

You don't have to smell like a citronella candle or DEET to ward off mosquitoes and other big bites. Aussie's love Vanessa Megan Bug Off and Roll On ($34.95; lunasolorganics.com), which makes sure that you're unappealing to insects but appealing to other people around you thanks to essential oils, including rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, and lavender while moisturizing at the same time with camellia, sunflower, and coconut oil.

Hydrate While Plumping Your Skin

A face mask with marine collagen such as Sea 2 Skin Active Hydration Mask ($33; sea2skin.com) will hydrate dry summer skin. The product not only hydrates but plumps for a dewy complexion and focuses on those areas that see the most consistent sun exposure—your face, neck, and chest—by using sustainable ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, marine collagen, evening primrose oil and white tea extract.

Protect Your Lips With Tinted Balm

Protecting your lips from the sun's rays is just as important as the rest of your body, but it's easy to overlook, so you often wind up with chapped, red, or flaky lips, and that's just not sexy. Tinted lip balms with SPF are a more flattering alternative to thick, white sports balms. Try Mecca Lip De-Lucious Tinted Balm with SPF 25
