Summer time and the living's easy—at least, it is with the help of a few problem-solving beauty products, chic accessories and handy gadgets!
Here at The Trend, we've been constantly on-the-go enjoying the seasonably warm temps at every opportunity. But like many a gal, we want to make sure we look good while having a little fun in the sun.
And since scorching temps often call for body-baring skirts and shorts, sleeveless tanks and intimidating itty bitty bikinis, there's no time like the present season to make sure our skin and physiques arein tip top form.
But if you—like us—find that your oh-so-busy schedules don't often give you enough time to hit the gym, we've got a little beauty secret that can help you cheat your way to gorgeous gams and arms.

This week, we've been buzzing about a couple of powerhouse creams from Karin Herzog. Beach babes will appreciate the brand's Silhouette body emulsion, which fights pesky cellulite so that you're bikini ready, while it's Tonus B12 product is packed with organic green tea, jojoba avocado and more good-for-you ingredients to help tone up you all over.
If you can't make it to the sandy shores of some fab vacation getaway, we're also loving Kérastase's Spray A Porter texture spray, which helps you fake covetable beach hair. Channel the carefree and cool wavy locks that come with spending a day at the beach with a few quick spritzes. The best part? Unlike many sea-salt mists, the new product doesn't coat your hair with a sticky layer.
To round out your amazing new bod and hair, we're also suggesting a couple of chic little accessories. Bulky bangles and statement pieces are a little too much to deal with in humid summer climes, so we suggest reaching for dainty baubles, like this charming Kaia Diamond Helsinki Bracelet.

As for a purse, do as Olivia Palermo does and complement your summer whites with one of Zara's eye-catching clutches, which has just enough room to hold all your essential, like a wallet, lipstick and, of course, your phone.

Of course, you'll want to snap a lot of selfies of yourself with your fierce new summer style and—thankfully—you can Instagram and tweet your pics to your heart's desire without fear of draining your battery. Just slip your smart phone into one of OtterBox's phone protective phone cases and it will charge your device as necessary, so you don't have to go running to an outlet out at the beach, music festival or whatever other fun summer soirees you have in store!
