Summer is great for a lot of things. Longer days, perfect beach weather, family vacations and more. However, beauty regimens and makeup don’t often account for the sudden spike in temperature and we are left with runny mascara, melted lipstick, sunburnt skin and dried out hair, and if you live in one of those humid states- frizz. Keeping pretty while staying cool seems almost impossible. But it’s do-able.
Shiny skin & blemishes
On occasion, I get invited to celebrity events and I get to meet and chat with some gorgeous and wonderful people. Usually, there is a photo opp. Last week, I committed photo opp faux pas number one. I had insanely shiny skin (see above). It was humid, and hot and my skin let me know, it wasn’t happy. Best way to prevent being immortalized all shiny face is to keep blotting sheets with you. They are great to absorb oils (and sweat) and totally control the shine. Plus, they typically wont smudge or destroy your makeup. Shine free and lookin’ good, perfect for those photo opps!
Now let’s talk about hair. You are hot, you sweat, and your hair is often forgotten about. Ladies, it needs hydration too! Plus, whether you realize or not, you should switch out your shampoo conditioners every so often to account for weather changes and other elements. Also, try to only wash every other day. If you think your hair gets greasy after a day, use some dry shampoo to soak it up and give your hair a break. Best advice: If you are heading to the pool or beach, don’t wash your hair til after otherwise you are from robbing it of its natural defenses against the harsh sun and pool chemicals. And always…ALWAYS condition your hair anytime you get it wet.
These will secure those embarrassing shines and fly away hair and will have you looking Summer HOT anytime you step out.
