Summer is in full swing meaning that if you haven’t yet it’s time to make a few changes to your beauty routine. Here are a few summer beauty tips to follow.
You should be using a non-comedogenic moisturizer and/or makeup year-round, but now that summer is in full swing it is essential to reapply every 3 to 4 hours. If you will be outside all day opt for a tinted moisturizer with SPF or go makeup-free with a SPF facial formula. Keep makeup light when it’s hot and humid and keep a rosewater atomizer in the fridge to keep you cool. If you are sweat-prone, carry blotting sheets with you and switch to a lighter facewash for the summer months. Buy an aloe plant to use for summer skin irritations and sunburns.
An SPF formula is a must in the summer months but should be used year round. If you are frizz-prone, switch to summer frizz products. Your curly or wavy hair may not hold straight styles in this warmer weather, so invest in some new headbands and hair accessories and try out a few new styles.
Never underestimate the importance of hydration for beauty and skincare. If you are dehydrated your skin and hair will dry out, which will quickly age you. If you live in a climate that is humid, this means you will need to up your usual eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day by at least 16 ounces a day. On top of that, you will need electrolytes.
Last but not least, the indoor AC will dry out your skin so reapply lotion in both the morning and evening.
