As we all know with the change of the seasons we have to make some updates in our beauty and makeup routine. However things get even more serious when we are speaking about the arrival of summer season and the risks that it comes with. From skin care routine to beauty regime here are the main beauty tips for a fresh summer look!
The Essence of Wearing Sunscreen
You might have heard about how important it is to wear suncreen especially in the summer season. The thing is that sun rays are very harmful for our skin and especially in this season there are high risks of getting a sunburn and damaging your skin in general. So to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. Now to choose the right sunscreen there are several things that you have to consider before rushing to buy one. First of all you have to pay attention to SPF level. Basically SPF level will make it understandable how many hours you are allowed to stay out in the sun. So the higher is the rate of SPF the longer the effects will last. However you have to keep in mind that sunscreen can easily be washed off. So you also have to apply a layer every couple of hours in order to protect your skin from sunrays for the rest of the day. Note that to provide full coverage you need to ensure that the formula you’ve chosen provides broad spectrum protection. Only this way you’ll fully protect yourself from UVA and UVB rays. Apply gently and only a small amount as you don’t want to cross the limits. After all it’s chemical formula. Also if you have alergies maybe it’s better to stick with a natural sunscreen.
Covering with Clothes
Yes, it might be a good idea, especially if you don’t like having a natural tan. However keep in mind that on average fabrics provide SPF 8, which is a lot lower rate than the one provided by sunscreen formulas.
Don’t Forget Hard to Reach Spots
Don’t forget to apply suscreen on hard to reach spots such as your knees, behind your ears and even your scalp as these spots also need extra protection.
Skin Care Routine in General
Use Non-Comedogenic Products
Especially if you happen to have an oily skin you have to be very careful as sunscreen may contribute to oil production. So to balance up we suggest using non-comedogenic makeup products that won’t clog your pores causing breakouts.
Keep your Skin Moisturized
Keep the pH levels of your skin balanced as dehydrated skin leads to acnes, dryness and even appearance of wrinkles. If you keep your skin well-hydrated you’ll actually protect it from all kind of bacteria, drynness, sunburns, etc.
By exfoliating you’ll remove dead skin cells making your skin smooth and open clogged pores protecting your skin from acne issues and all kinds of irritations caused by dirt and bacteria.
Use Aloe-Vera Products
Aloe Vera is well known for its beauty and health benefits. So by choosing Aloe Vera formulas instead of regular ones you’ll calm and soothe your skin protecting it from all kind of damages.
Use Moisturizes Designed for Being Applied on Wet Skin
There are some great formulas that you can apply on wet skin afterwash. The best thing about them is that their formula allows you to apply moisturizer when your pores are open keeping your skin hydrated for longer than usual.
Makes Some Changes in the Shade you’re Using
You’ll definitely get a sun-kissed effect in the summer season. Well you don’t want to apply a thin layer of pale white foundation on your skin and end up with an artificial look. So it is a great idea to change the color of your foundation and your powder to get a natural, sun-kissed effect.
Use Cream Eyeshadows
Because they’re water resistant and they won’t leave you with smudging effect. So considering that cream eyeshadows come with guaranteed long lasting effects we suggest sticking with such formulas.
Opt for Waterproof Mascara
Again, to avoid smudged effect and even worse to avoid those annoying under-eye smears we suggest sticking with a waterproof mascara of a high quality that also contains specific oils that are nourishing your lashes contributing in their growth.
Apply Brozner correctly
Ok you don’t want to apply bronzer all over your face because you’ll look ridiculus. The best way to apply brozner in summer assumes dabing a bit of color on the apples of your cheeks and on your forehead or right below your cheekbone in order to achieve a flawless look.
Blot or Spray Instead of Smearing
Rubbing your skin to get rid of oil excess will only ruin your look washing off your makeup. That is why we suggest taking a sheet of blotting paper and using it to get red of oils. Also if you just want to refresh your face you can simply use a refreshing spray. So there’s no need of spending hours in front of the mirror.
Hair care and Style
Wear a Bedhead Look
Protect your hair from extra heat and chemicals applied by sticking with natural looks such as the very trendy bedhead look. Also you can wear low-buns, ponytails etc.
Choose the Right Shampoo
Decide what you’re focusing on, extra shine, texture or color protection and depending on that start looking for the right formula.
Try to Keep your Hair Wet
This way you’ll protect your hair from the sun and the dry air avoiding ending up with dry and damaged hair that have lost their color.
So this is pretty much what you need to know. Enjoy the sunny days of summer by showing off your flawless beauty!
