Summer beauty tips | Skin, eyes, hair and makeup

Summer has arrived and it is time to get ready to change your daily beauty routine, adapting it to the needs of the warmer weather and hot sun. We will see today some tips to maintain fresh even in the summer season by taking the right decisions for the warmest time of the year.

Cleansing

The cleaning of the skin in the summer is more important than ever as sweating, dry environment and dust attack the skin, and not in a good way. Choose a gentle cleanser that removes excess oil without drying the skin. After cleaning, never forget a lightweight day cream that will complement the lack of skin moisture by the heat and sun.

It is also good to do a gentle peeling once a week. This of course is average because an oily skin may need exfoliation 1-2 days earlier and a drier skin once every 15 days. Don’t ever forget that after the exfoliation you need to hydrate your skin with cream. Many are those who because of the heat and sweat think that the use of a cream gives a heavy feeling and so believe that in the summer it is not necessary to use a cream but they are wrong. The correct way is to change the cream used in the winter with some lighter one that will have all the necessary ingredients that will moisturize the skin properly.

Sunscreen protection

Do you want a healthy skin? Use sunscreen. And not just on the beach. The sun accelerates the aging of the skin and it is an undeniable fact. If you like the natural tanning, use sunscreen with color until your skin reaches the summer color you wish. Remember, sunscreen does not prevent tanning, it just slows it down a bit while blocking the harmful UV rays.

Sunglasses

The sunglasses are a fashion accessory, it is necessary, especially on days with strong sunlight. Don’t ever forget them! Get sunglasses with specialty optical lenses that have UV filters and of course the frame that suits your face and makes you want to wear it all the time.

Makeup

The heat and the hot sun make us sweat. The make up runs or evaporates, the skin shines and the whole set shows very ugly. Fortunately this year the catwalks were filled with natural looks and common mortals that can breathe a sigh of relief. So forget all the heavy compact make up you own and go out only with your sunscreen. The ultimate natural look, complement your natural brow shape with some minor touch ups. If this seems inconceivable choose a colored sunscreen cream, waterproof mascara, blush and eyeshadows in a creamy form and of course, a juicy colored lip gloss. For evening performances the suggestions for makeup move in the same idea: natural skin, light creamy eyeshadows, blush, mascara and a bright lip gloss.

And another tip. Avoid touching your skin throughout the day. All you will accomplish is to make it look dirty and with shuffled makeup. Put clean refreshing water in a nebulizer and spray your face even if you have makeup on. Allow the water to dry in the air and see what wonders it can do. As for the perfume, because it evaporates too quickly because of the heat, prefer scented oils. If you use odorless body cream, mix it with 1-2 drops of aromatic oil and apply it on your body, do not forget the neck and shoulders!

Hair

Natural ponytails, messy buns, romantic curls and girly braids are the trends this summer. But the beauty routine must include the proper hair care. First of all avoid stylized hairstyles and long hair. Let your hair rest from all the styling products.
