We still can't believe that it's already August. After the past few months spent soaking up sun at music festivals, the beach and outdoor restaurants, our hair and skin need major TLC.

Luckily, there are awesome new products under $20 that will not only fix common summer beauty woes, but give your routine added oomph. From a hair-softening hot oil treatment to a lustrous aubergine nail polish, we've stocked up on these seven affordable beauty buys:
