Summer Beauty: With the first long weekend of the summer approaching, here's our handy guide on how to look hot from head to toe.

Everyone knows that “souping” is the new juicing, so get yourself over to the SoupPure kiosk in Brentwood and load up on asparagus and leek or pumpkin and mushroom broths. Soup sooths the soul and leaves you feeling satisfied – unlike the other cold and sugary options. Cleanse packages start at one day or up to five. http://www.soupure.com/

If you’re not relaxed, you won’t look hot no matter how hard you try. Take a long soak with the new Me! Bath Ice-Cream collection and you’ll feel like a kid again. The pomegranate bath balls will leave your body silky smooth and smelling like a delicious fruit while adding a subtle sheen. http://www.mebath.com/   

Follow that soak up with something a little more serious: Magnetic Moisture Body Lotion by Cash & Co. This new luxurious 100 percent vegan skin line is made locally in West Hollywood with the natural pyro-electric powers of Tourmaline Crystals which deliver ultra-hydrating Hyaluronic Acid.  This product might even make you want to forgo the spray tan when you see how great it makes you skin look and feel – but if you are fake tanning, be sure to use their body scrub first. http://www.shopcashandco.com/Magnetic-Moisture

You’ll want your hair to look like you just walked out of a top Beverly Hills salon, so look no further than celebrity colorist Debi Dumas and hairstylist Alina Ratta (pictured above) at Rossano Ferretti Hairspa. This dynamic hair duo was also the “glam squad” for Patti Stanger’s The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo. So if these gals can hook up those hopeful lovelorn daters from the show - imagine what they can do for you in a few hours. From cutting and coloring  - Debi specializes in the French balayage technique of hair painting, you’ll look like a million bucks – regardless of whether you plan to try out for that show or not.  Rossano Ferretti has salons all over the globe from Mumbai to Milano and Miami, and this sleek black and chandelier clad version might also be in the heart of all the other upper-crust, chic brand name salons on Cannon Drive, but the interiors and staff are like a welcoming boutique filled with your besties. http://rossanoferretti.com/it/saloni/beverly-hills-l-a/

The best follow-up product that we have found for fine hair has just been developed and released by Joico - Hair Shake finishing texturizer will be your best friend after a hard day-to-night stint. This light weight, liquid to powder hybrid spray is applied to dry hair as it adds volume, texture and thickness. http://www.joico.com/

Of course, a gorgeous complexion is next up and you can never go wrong with Intraceuticals Opulence Collection. They have just introduced a new Daily Serum with the latest skin brightening peptides and botanical ingredients. The silky serum will even skin tone and diminish sun spots and hyperpigmentation with a winning combination of Vitamin C and A, plus three layers of hyaluronic acid for a plump and healthy appearance. http://www.intraceuticals.com/  

It might be obvious but don’t forget your sunscreen! Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30 by Radical Skincare is a non-chemical sun protection with crushed diamond powder that gives off a soft reflective and light diffusing pigment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles to boot. This goes well under any type of make-up. http://www.radicalskincare.com/products/skin-perfecting-screen-spf-30

For the finishing touch, sprinkle on a little make-up from the new Hard Candy 20-Year-Anniversary Limited Edition collection. Yes, this line launched two decades ago and is still as wildly popular as ever. The full collection includes eight shades of nail polish in the original packaging with the iconic Hard Candy rings, an eye shadow palette featuring a kaleidoscope of colors, four liquid eyeliners, three lip-glosses and two shades of Heart Baked Blush.  Every item in this collection and the brand’s extensive line is under $12 and you just can’t beat that. http://www.hardcandy.com/
