The Must-Have Items for Summer Beauty
'Tis the season for the coveted sun-kissed look, and for many this can come at a high price. Don't risk your skin with the harsh, damaging effects of UV rays. Protect your skin and upgrade your skin products to ones with SPF. For example, trade in your foundation for a tinted moisturizer with SPF. This formula is lighter and it allows your skin to breath, and remain moist through the day. A lighter formula is better during the hot days because, unlike heavy foundations, it will not allow bacteria to form in your skin, preventing many of the unwanted heat-breakouts.
Choosing a tinted moisturizer is simple. Most formulas contain at least SPF 7, keeping your skin protected and hydrated. Remember to also protect your neck, shoulders and back. Make SPF protection part of your routine. Pick a body lotion that has SPF in it, and be sure to add a light coat of SPF to arms and legs as they are likely to be exposed the most.
We can all agree that a sexy glow is the most alluring component in the highly-desired summer look. Luckily for you, you will not need to fry your skin under the sun to achieve it. A powder highlighter will do the trick. Apply this magical product (as it sure does wonders) at the highest points of your face: the cheekbones, the bow of your lips, and at the center of the bottom lip. For a wide awake and fresh look, apply highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes. This will give your face a glowing and and lively complexion.
Be sure to pick a shade that goes with you natural skin tone. If you have fair skin, choose a champagne shade. If your skin is medium beige to olive, pick a shade that has a golden hint to it. And if your skin is darker, select a shade with a bronze hue.
It is very easy to forget that our lips also need protection against the sun, so remember to protect your beautiful pout. While lip gloss gives your lips a juicy touch of color, it doesn't protect you against the damaging UV rays.
To keep your lips protected, opt for a moisturizing, SPF lip color or lip balm. Many lip balms offer color and a hint of shine, which will give your lips a glossy shine. You will achieve maximum hydration and protection, while still maintaining a glamorous touch.
Keep your lashes looking glam and luxurious no matter how hot or how the situation. Heat and water are not friends to a gorgeous face, and when at a summer day pool party or on a hot beach day, you don't want to be the one with raccoon eyes.
Waterproof mascara will help your lashes stay long and flirty all day without running or melting under the hot summer sun. However, use with caution. Waterproof mascara can be difficult to remove with just water and soap. Be sure to gently remove it with eye makeup remover, rubbing lightly at the eyelashes and not the entire eye. You don't want your eyes to end up looking heavy.
