Days spent out and about in the sun, lounging at the beach, and swimming in the pool or the ocean have a positive effect on our mood and our energy levels. But when it comes to our body, high temperatures, UV lights, and salt from the water can have a damaging effect if we don’t take care of our skin and hair. On the other hand, this in no way means that you need a ton of products and treatments so you could enjoy summer carefree. You can follow certain routines that will nourish your body and boost your beauty.
Follow these five beauty tips that will get you that irresistible summer glow.
A different skincare regime for summertime
During the warmer months, the weather changes, and our body adapts accordingly. So, we sweat more and our skin type can become oilier. Some people can experience redness and rashes. Thus, you need to adjust your skincare routine to the current needs of your skin. Firstly, opt for a foam or gel-based face wash and include a face mist into your routine. Go for rosewater ones that you can carry in your bag and spritz throughout the day. A refreshing mist will provide your skin with some much-needed hydration.
Don’t forget about changing your moisturizer. Switch up your winter, rich day cream for a lightweight summer one, which preferably has SPF. If you experience redness, calm your skin with a soothing night mask that you can use before you go to bed and just before you apply the moisturizer.
Healthy hair is beautiful hair
The sun, chlorine from the pools, and salt from the ocean can take a toll on your hair quality. Thus, you need to pay extra attention to your locks while enjoying the hottest days of the year. Firstly, you can try wearing a modish hat whenever you can. A lovely straw hat will look amazing with a light, maxi dress, while a trendy bucket one will be the perfect accessory to your colorful bikini. Additionally, you should stay away from constantly wearing your hair in a tight bun or ponytail. This will weaken and mechanically damage it even more, so let your locks fall freely.
Exfoliate and wear sunscreen
As we wear clothes that cover less of our bodies during the warmer months, we leave more of the skin exposed. This means that we have to make it look even more gorgeous and take additional care of it. So, start by regularly exfoliating. This will help remove all the dead skin cells and will rejuvenate the skin. Then apply a rich amount of body butter that will give your skin the hydration it needs. Finally, don’t forget to wear sunscreen whenever you leave the house. Not only when you go sunbathing, but also when going for a walk or doing errands around the town.
Beauty comes from the inside
“Drink plenty of water” is certainly a summer mantra. There is no dispute over the fact that we need to have a water bottle by our side constantly in the summer months. Drinking plenty of water will make you feel refreshed and energized, while simultaneously hydrating your skin and hair. Moreover, you should also eat more vegetables and fruit that are full of antioxidants. They will protect your skin from the sun damaging it, and will also help with acne and breakouts. Combined with healthy fats and omega-3s, these nutrients will get your skin that summer glow.
Minimal makeup for the best summer look
Heavy foundation, tons of eyeshadow, and drying lipsticks are not welcomed during the hottest time of the year. While you can go with simply wearing just a bit of hydrating lip gloss, in case you want to look more put together, you can opt for minimal makeup. A tinted moisturizer, some bronzer to accentuate that sun-kissed look, and a bit of mascara is just enough to make you look even more gorgeous and glowing.
Finally, just a bit of invested time and effort can get you a wonderful summer attractive look. And remember, healthy skin and hair are always the most gorgeous ones.
