Embrace Summer Beauty Trends
Ok, baby girl. This could either be your sexiest summer yet - or a beautifully tragic mess. While we've been hiding in quarantine, our body hair has become unruly, our roots have given everything away, and our nails have been begging for a better stylist than the nearest child that's old enough to be trusted with nail polish.
Things are a little out of control in the beauty department. But that either means you can kick off summer with fuller brows, healthier hair and stronger nail beds - or you can double-down on body hair and broken nails. The choice is yours. But for all our sakes, we hope you choose to return to your stylists before those "Quarantine Beauty Trends" become as permanent as the hair color we're missing so dearly.
Here are the fixes we recommend.

Embrace the Sun with Proper Skin Care
If you love dramatic anti-aging results without going under the knife, then you'll absolutely love the iS Clinical line of medical-grade skin care available at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Care. Packed with powerful actives - and none of the synthetics - this science-backed brand uses pure botanicals to address your skin concerns quickly and effectively. And during an SCV summer, you're bound to get a little too much sun at some point. Fear not because iS Clinical's Pro Heal Serum Advance+ contains a powerful concentration of Vitamin C and other antioxidants needed to protect your skin from sun damage - plus give it the healing boost it needs to recover from those harsh UV rays.

"As an SCV native and proud graduate of Valencia High School, I'm especially impressed by this year's graduating class. They have shown such care and compassion to each other and their community and, most importantly, a commitment to shaping a better future for themselves and others. These are the leaders of tomorrow - but they're not waiting to lead. They're making a difference today."

Embrace the Length with Mermaid Hair
Who doesn't want long, luscious mermaid hair when the upkeep is minimal and the look is deceptively natural? Blo-Out Lounge premium hair extensions offer unmatched quality in natural hair extensions that stand up to heat styling, swimming in chlorine, the cruel summer sun and so much more. Plus, they're low-maintenance and reusable, so you can get the most from your investment with the least amount of effort.

Embrace the Downtime with a Mommy Makeover
If you've been contemplating a few nips and tucks around your problem areas, there's no better time to recover from the Holy Grail of aesthetic treatments - the Mommy Makeover - than this summer. One of the most popular treatments for women, a Mommy Makeover is a customized combination procedure that rejuvenates the breasts, body and skin for a refreshed, vibrant and renewed glow. Why not take advantage of the downtime from school pick-up and drop-off, and instead, prop up your feet with the AC on and the TV turned up loud. After all, doesn't Mom deserve a little beauty rest?

Beautiful Grads Inside & Out
We would be remiss to ignore this summer's truest beauty: the grace, resilience and strength the 2020 graduating class has shown as they start the next chapter of their lives during one of the most turbulent chapters of our entire lifetimes. It's true, watching the next generation cross the stage into adulthood is always a beautiful thing to see. This year, however, we have yet to watch them toss their caps into the horizon - and yet they still look to the future with unshakeable hope and positivity. That's why, as we talk about summer beauty, we find there's nothing more inspiring than the inner strength of our youngest leaders.
