The summer heat and glare of the sun wreak havoc on your skin, causing acne, open pores, and sunburn. You can’t go wrong with wearing little to no makeup in the summer, but picking formulations and products that will survive heat, humidity, and even perspiration can be tough. Now that summer is here, it’s more vital than ever to maintain a solid skincare and beauty routine that takes care of your skin and keeps you looking beautiful in the heat. These beauty tips and tactics can help you sail through the scorching summer season and resist the summer heat wave.
USE SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY
There’s no excuse for not applying sunscreen if you’re going outside in the sun, especially with the current heat wave. The lotion will both moisturize and protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Use a sunscreen which is safe for your skin type.
- THICK FACIAL CREAMS SHOULD BE AVOIDED
In the heat, the last thing you want to deal with is layers of skincare melting off your face. Use something lighter and wait for it to absorb before adding your day’s makeup. Gel-cream formulas are light and so ideal for use during the summer months when humidity levels are high.
- ROSEWATER REFRESHES YOU
Rosewater keeps your skin bright and radiant. Keeping fresh rosewater in the refrigerator and dusting it on your face and skin several times a day during the summer will help you look radiant and tan-free. Despite the sweltering weather, this beauty tip will help you see an immediate effect on your skin, making dull skin brighter and softer.
- CHOOSING GENTLE SCRUBS
During the summer, our pores tend to widen to allow our skin to breathe more freely. Excessive sweat and grime clog the pores, resulting in blackheads and outbreaks. Summer dust and environmental harm can also dull your skin. To remove filth and grime from your body, use a proper scrub.
- CHOOSE MAKEUP THAT IS LIGHT AND WATERPROOF.
For a summer-friendly look, choose for light-weight makeup products. Creams are the ideal option for creating dewy, naturally flushed, or bronzed results since they slide on gently. Cooling mists are also fantastic for setting makeup and refreshing your skin during the hot summer months. The setting spray adds a small layer of protection to your face, preventing your makeup from slipping down.
