It's summer – the time for simple, breezy makeup to go along with our beachy wardrobe. Get your skin ready for bare-it-all bikinis and backyard barbecues with these easy tricks and tips.
Exfoliate Once A Day
Brighten your skin with an exfoliating scrub each day in the morning. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull and lifeless. Following a warm shower, use a mild exfoliating scrub with alpha-hydroxy acids for fresh, healthy-looking skin that glows.
After a long winter, everyone’s skin looks Casper the ghost pale. For a beach-worthy healthy glow, apply self-tanner. Exfoliate your skin first, concentrating on any rough or dry patches. Then rub a little body lotion on your knees and elbows to keep them from turning too dark. Then apply your favorite self-tanner. Look for a mousse or spray formula. These go on the easiest with the least amount of streaking.
Be sure to apply sunscreen anytime you step out into the sun to protect your skin against skin cancer, sun spots and sunburn. Look for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with an SPF of 30 or more. Apply sunscreen liberally to all areas that will be exposed to the sun half an hour before heading outside. Reapply every two hours throughout the day.
Simplify Your ‘Do
Heat and humidity will ruin your blow out as soon as you leave the house. Instead, smooth an anti-frizz spray to your tresses. Then, twist sections of your hair to create waves. Let air dry for loose and long beachy waves. On extra hot days, get hair up and out of the way by trying a sweet side braid that won’t weigh you down.
