5 Beauty Tips for Summer

As the summer months are approaching it’s time to get ready to switch up your beauty routine! Glowing skin, sunkissed cheeks, and products that will last all day in the summer heat are a must. No matter what your plans are this summer, these beauty tips will have you looking and feeling your best.

1. Ditch Your Face Makeup

On a hot summer day, nothing is worse than feeling your foundation melt on your face. Not to mention, covering up your face keeps the freckles you’re getting from the sunshine from peeking through! Ditch foundation and undereye concealer this summer and opt for a lightweight tinted moisturizer (with SPF!) instead. If you’re still worried about blemishes or insecurities like undereye bags or wrinkles, splurge on a skincare treatment like a facial from a local salon or undereye microneedling from https://inhstl.com/.

2. Use Creams, Not Powders

Any products you *do* use on your face should be creams, which add a glow to the skin and look more natural. This is especially important if you are staying away from heavy face products; applying a powder bronzer to foundation-less skin can look muddy and streaky, but a cream bronzer will blend right in and give you a natural-looking sunkissed glow.

3. Stay Hydrated

You can use all the dewy products you want, but unless you’re staying hydrated and drinking at least 10 glasses of water a day, you just won’t look as glowy as you desire. Invest in a reusable plastic water bottle to carry with you to the beach or pool, so you can sip with ease all summer long.

4. Get a Waterproof Setting Spray

To make sure your face stays set on a long, sweaty day or when there’s a possibility that your day of laying out by the pool will tempt you to take a swim, use a waterproof setting spray. This will lock your products in all day, and keep you looking fresh.

5. SPF Everywhere

Wearing sunscreen on your face and body isn’t enough! Be sure to protect your hair with SPF products like hairspray or leave in conditioner to prevent dryness and fading color, and always carry an SPF lip balm with you to avoid sunburnt lips. Your sunscreen products should have an SPF of 50 or higher and should be reapplied often.
