Are you a lip­stick lover or face cream fa­natic? Then you’re in the right place. Ev­ery is­sue, we give you the low­down on fab­u­lous fra­grances, lux­u­ri­ous lo­tions, must-have makeup and ev­ery­thing in-be­tween. Be­cause whether you’re a laid-back surfer babe or a to­tal prod­uct junkie, you know it’s a beau­ti­ful thing to look as good as you feel.

TAME YOUR TRESSES

No mat­ter the style you’re af­ter, Al­terna Hair­care likely has a prod­uct that can help. Some of the line’s lat­est of­fer­ings in­clude the Caviar Style Grit Flex­i­ble Tex­tur­iz­ing Paste ($28), great for sculpt­ing and sep­a­rat­ing, and the Caviar Style Con­crete Ex­treme Def­i­ni­tion Clay ($28), an ul­tra-strong op­tion for max­i­mum hold and def­i­ni­tion. For a sleek and smooth look, try the Caviar Style Satin Rapid Blowout Balm ($28). The light­weight lo­tion cuts down on style time, while con­di­tion­ing and en­rich­ing your locks. A blend of strength­en­ing pro­teins and nour­ish­ing ex­tracts makes hair eas­ier to work with and pro­tects it from dam­age. Grab these and other Al­terna Hair­care prod­ucts at Ulta at the Bell Tower Shops in Fort My­ers (239-334-0659, ulta.com) and Co­conut Point in Es­tero (239-992-0361).

IN A LATHER

Ditch the ba­sic bar of soap and reach for one of the new shea but­ter soaps from Farm­House Fresh ($11.50 each). First, choose your scent: Co­conut Cream (a mix of co­conut and tonka bean), Citrine Beach (a blend of lime, co­conut and rum) or Front Porch Punch (a san­gria-like combo of straw­berry, grape­fruit, mango, melon and peach). Then lather up and watch the 97-per­cent nat­u­ral bar get to work. Thick enough to shave with, the hy­drat­ing soaps fea­ture a nour­ish­ing blend of shea but­ter, olive oil and sweet al­mond oil. Find the soaps and other Farm­House Fresh prod­ucts at lo­cal spots like Sani­bel Day Spa (239-395-2220, sani­bel­dayspa.com), the Spa at ’Tween Wa­ters Inn on Cap­tiva (239-472-7722, tween-wa­ters.com/the-spa) and the Green Leaf Day Spa in Fort My­ers (239-334-1400, the­green­leaf­dayspa.com).
