Summer is synonymous with warm days, long walks on the beach and delightful dips in the ocean and pool, and sunshine — a nice little spicy salad on the side.
When people overuse sizzle, it can lead to burnout. Burning skin, curling hair, and cracking makeup are some of the more common effects of the sun’s rays, heat, and humidity. You can sail through Labor Day looking and feeling fabulous if you only utilize the handful of well-known products recommended by dermatologists.
It’s always important to check the sunscreen’s ingredients; indeed, a sunscreen containing both titanium and zinc is best. It will not be blocked by anything with an SPF of 70 or 100 because that is what will effectively block the sun’s rays most. Titanium and zinc are in some makeup; see the ingredient list. In addition, you should always wear a hat with a wide brim and sunglasses while sunbathing to prevent damage to your skin.
Wearing an SPF Sun shirt and rash guards provide extra protection, so you can skip the SPF lotion on your upper body. People have discovered that they no longer want to apply sunscreen all day long. I could sweat and swim in this shirt, which can be easily layered under another shirt of my choosing for the rest of the day, especially if I’m very fair-skinned.
One of the biggest struggles of summer is…. flat hair, especially for thin hair texture. The poor humidity in your hair can cause it to fall out quickly. Using dry shampoo at the roots adds back some of the volume you lose when you wash your hair every day (it sounds counter-intuitive, but the extra oil in your hair can give you more body).
While some suffer from flat hair in summer, others can’t seem to tame their frizziness. Thick and curly hair gets out of control during hot summer days, but fine hair gives up on those days. It is important to maintain your hair’s natural lustre and bounce by using two products: one for fighting humidity and another for managing frizz.
Another part of our body we should keep an eye on during summer is the decolleté [the part of your neck down to your breasts]; however it is routinely overlooked. Make sure to use sunscreen regularly, even if you’re not wearing a sun shirt. Also, apply it more often if you’re active, sweating, or out in the sun for a long time.
What about our faces this summer? Serum. You already know that heavy face and body creams can be safely stowed away during the winter months, but what do you use instead? A hydrating serum. Indeed, hyaluronic acid can hold its weight in water and leave the skin looking and feeling dewy without a heavy feel is a great benefit to look for when selecting a moisturizer. Also, be sure to include vitamins A and C in your serum.
Makeup… and summer… Who likes feeling like a melting wax doll? Well, the answer to that is makeup that can handle perspiration and activity.
It is always a good idea to add a water-resistant primer to your makeup bag, even on sticky days. When purchasing a foundation, look for one that is free of parabens, as well as tinted moisturizers and lip balms with SPF (every little bit of protection helps). Both blotting papers and powder can help absorb excess oil and sweat. Until the return of fall, keep creamy concealers in the cupboard and use a drier alternative. If your skin is oily, this could be a good time to try a makeup product without oils or powders.
Summer is all about that healthy glow we all want to achieve, and happily, we no longer have to deal with self-tanners that transform you into orange specimens. However, these formulas can be difficult to apply and may lead to more pronounced areas of discolouration. Use a makeup sponge to apply self-tanner to the hands, feet, ankles, elbows, and knees. “That helps prevent the tanner from settling in those areas, making it look more natural.” Using half and half of your self-tanner with your body lotion will help give you a more believable look in difficult-to-reach areas. To ensure your face and body are consistent, use some bronzer or self-tanner on your face.
Additionally, choosing body treatment products that match your skin type is essential. Clothing that is appropriate for summer is usually skin-revealing. It is suggested to use a product with lactic acid to help skin stay looking healthy. This really makes the skin shine.
According to her, one should apply a few drops of oil with vitamin A, C, and E mixed in, followed by one’s regular moisturizer.
Now moving on to chlorine level in pools, which should be at 8. Most pools contain chlorine, which is drying to the skin and hair colour. Let the water drain off as soon as you get out of the pool. Use a color-safe shampoo to maintain the vibrancy of your hair colour, and limit sun exposure and over-washing to help preserve the colour.
