It’s been a long, strange trip but the pot our hippie forbearers fought to smoke has become mainstream—and part of a growing personal-care scene—but not without confusion. For starters, hemp and marijuana are both variations of the cannabis plant. Hemp-based hair- and skincare products are nothing new, as hemp oil has been used to soothe skin for centuries. (For the record, industrial hemp grown for oil contains no psychoactive compounds.)

But skincare with CBD—a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant—is a relative newcomer, and it’s been touted for its positive effects on acne, irritation, psoriasis and more (without getting you stoned). To make this brave new

Who knew water was trending? I did, but that’s not why I love water-based beauty products this time of year. At the very top of the list is that they never slip and slide, no matter how steamy and sticky the weather gets. Also, water-based products cool on contact, don’t add excess oil, are quickly absorbed, are not likely to clog pores and can even boost hydration in a major way.

Check out these H2O-laced keepers:

Though no one would ever classify my skin or hair as oily, I do notice that clay-based beauty products always find a place in my bathroom, especially in the dog days of summer. It’s important to note though, that all clay used beauty products are not created equal.
