Lifestyle Essentials for Summer

Episode 220,  Jun 15, 2022, 06:41 PM

Summer lifestyle essentials you need in your life right now. 

Tom’s of Maine has two new innovations to try. For more than 50 years, they’ve been taking scientific know-how and naturally derived ingredients, to make products that are good for you and the planet. First up is the brand's Complete Protection Deodorant. It’s all-natural with 24-hour odor and wetness protection with no aluminum, no artificial fragrances or preservatives, no parabens, and no animal testing. Next up is their new PureActiv Teeth + Gum Health Toothpaste. It is formulated with zinc citrate and sea salt, giving you a soothing deep clean, and pearly white smile. You can find both of these products at and for a price between $5.99 to $6.99.

Next is an absolute must for summer, WaterWipes, the world’s purest baby wipes. They're designed to soothe sensitive baby skin but are amazing for taking care of the skin of anyone in the family, especially on the go. You can also use them to take off makeup. They work as clean-ups after a messy BBQ too. Or use them for a quick wipe-down after the beach. Better yet, they’re 100% biodegradable, plastic-free, and made with only two ingredients, water (99.9%) and a drop of fruit extract. And unlike traditional wipes that can take 100 years to break down, WaterWipes biodegrade within four weeks. They're available in original and textured for trickier messes. You can find them at major retailers, including Target or Walmart. 

Now let’s talk summer hair and another product we love, Hair Food. They believe what you put on your hair is just as important as what you eat. Their mission is simple: Nourish your hair like you nourish your body. Inspired by clean, simple, kitchen-crafted recipes, full of all the nourishing ingredients you want, and none of the things you don’t. Each of their blends has a crafted recipe to cleanse and nourish your hair without sulfates, dyes, or parabens, designed to protect color-treated hair. All of their products are PETA and cruelty-free. 

The first product we love is their Coconut Milk & Chai Spice Nourishing Shampoo, bursting with comforting creamy coconut milk and chai spice scents. It gives your hair a pick-me-up, livens, and volumizes it. And of course, your hair smells amazing too. Get it for $7.99.  

The second is their Hemp Extract & Manuka Honey Damage Recovery Serum. It's great when you need a refresh. It also repairs and hydrates, getting you back your natural shine. Get it for $9.99.

Lastly, the Avocado & Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Mask is like treating your hair to a  spa day by smoothing your hair from root to tip, helping you get the styles you love. After shampooing, put a small amount in your palm, work it through with your fingers, leave on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse it out. Just $2.99 at Walmart, Target, and Amazon. Learn more at
