Your summer beauty routine

Our beauty squad at Fusion Spa Salons in Pensacola, Orange Beach and Sandestin is a tad obsessed with summer. Can you blame us? With a backdrop like the Emerald Coast, it’s easy to love the longer days, the ocean breeze and the chance to channel our inner mermaids with a summer beauty routine that keeps things sweet, simple and oh-so-pretty. Read on for everything you need to know to adjust your beauty routine for these summer months!


When the summer hits, we opt for a beauty routine that keeps things simple—and the foundation for a simple beauty routine is beautiful skin. In the heat, keeping loads of makeup on without it running (hello, sweat) or looking oily (hello, humidity) can be tedious. Thankfully, with proper skin care, your skin can look healthy and hydrated so that you shine all summer, even with a fresh face and minimal makeup. Here are our favorite Aveda products for gorgeous summer skin:

  • Purifying Gel Cleanser: Start and end the day with this gentle, plant-powered cleanser that gets rid of oil and makes skin bright and healthy.

  • Liquid Exfoliant: After cleansing, apply this exfoliant to both smooth up skin and get your pores primed to get the maximum benefit from all your skin care products.
  • Energizing Eye Cream: Next up, apply some plant-based cream to brighten the skin around your eyes and diminish the appearance of dark circles. This is especially handy when the summer beach days turn into summer nights and you need a little something to bring back your vibrancy.
  • Daily Light Guard Sun Block: Sun protection should be part of your beauty routine every single day, but it’s especially important in the summer when you are probably spending more time soaking up some rays. We love this sunscreen because it’s light, smooth, and enriched with anti-oxidants that actually make your skin healthier.
  • Intense Hydrating Masque: During summertime, hydration is key to healthy skin. So in addition to drinking lots of water, we also recommend upping your skin hydration game with a hydrating masque. This magic masque packs a major hydration punch by soothing dryness and increasing your skin’s moisture level with rosewater. Yes, please!

Just like with skin, keeping hair care simple during summer is a must. There’s a reason pixie cuts, bobs and lobs are so popular during warmer months—shorter styles keep hair off your neck and shoulders, and it’s a lot easier to manage in terms of styling. But even if you have long, luscious locks, the right products can help your hair stay healthy and gorgeous all summer long. Here are our favorites:

  • Smooth Infusion Nourishing Creme: We know that humidity is the enemy of good hair days, and we’re here to help. This creme controls frizz that pops up in intense humidity for a smooth style that will last up to 12 hours.
  • Phomollient Styling Foam: During summer, if you want your hair to be light and breezy, opt for this weightless styling foam that creates body and volume without making your hair feel heavy and weighed down.
  • Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser: After a long day in the sun, your hair and body need a little TLC. This rock-star product removes chlorine, salt and buildup while also moisturizing using plant oils.

  • Brilliant Spray Shine: Summer calls for extra shine, right? This spray gives your locks a sheer mist of vitamin E, which gives you a glossy shine, eliminates flyaways, and tames frizz.


Sometimes, it’s nice to add a little something extra to your hair care routine. That’s where we come in—our salons offer hair treatments that can give your hair an extra dose of nutrients, hydration, and shine. We love:

  • Botanical Treatment: This $15 add-on is a bonus for any hair care service—boost moisture and leave with noticeably healthier hair.

One of our favorite ways to elevate our beauty routine is with a summer spa day. Our spas in Sandestin, Orange Beach and Pensacola have a number of services that can make you look and feel fresh. Here are our favorites:

  • Our Dual Exfoliation Facial is a non-invasive treatment that totally rejuvenates your skin through the process of exfoliation. It boosts smoothness and radiance using the power of plants and minerals.
  • Our waxing treatments are customizable and comfortable, so you can hit the beach or pool feeling confident.
