Summer can bring on the beauty headaches, even if you use good skin care products and do facial exercises daily. Warm weather can melt your makeup, cause breakouts and dehydrate your skin. The sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sun damage such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Since summer is about enjoying beautiful weather and taking time off to relax, the last thing you want to do is worry about your looks. The good news is, we’ve got some summer-friendly beauty tips that will help you beat the heat and stay gorgeous while you’re doing it.
1. Go Non-Comedogenic
My skin care products are non-comedogenic, which means they are specifically formulated to avoid clogging your pores. Clogged pores lead to unsightly mishaps including breakouts, acne and irritation. Only use oil-free and non-comedogenic products this time of year so that your skin doesn’t have to battle perspiration and heavy cosmetics.
2. Lighten Up
Ditch your foundation and heavy makeup whenever possible during hot weather, especially during the day. Your skin will benefit from having the chance to breathe. A little bit of bronzer, concealer or tinted moisturizer can do the trick. If you work out, try to go completely makeup-free since your skin will already be burdened with perspiration.
While you can opt for a lighter moisturizer this time of year, don’t skip it altogether. The elements can take a toll on your skin and make it dry and unhappy. A light moisturizer can protect it from pollution, moisture loss and drying agents including the sun, chlorine and salt water.
4. Time Exfoliation Right
Timing is everything when it comes to exfoliation. Newly exfoliated skin is more sensitive to the sun, so exfoliate at night or on days you won’t be outside.
5. Don’t Overdo Bronzer
Many make the mistake of treating bronzer like foundation and apply it everywhere. For a natural look, apply it to the apples of the cheek and lightly swipe it over your forehead. Don’t forget to blend—you don’t want swipes of bronzer to detract from your polished look.
