Summer is the perfect time to slow down, take a breather, and enjoy the warm weather. Make sure to carve out a little time to pamper yourself and refresh your summer makeup kit. You deserve it! Here are our five suggestions just for you!
GIVE YOUR SKIN SOME TLC
Stop multi-tasking and start multi-masking! For the uninitiated, multi-masking involves applying different face masks to different areas of your face. After all, your eye contour and oily T-zone need different active ingredients, so why would you use the same product on them?
On the T-zone: Use a mask formulated with activated charcoal or salicylic acid on zones where you are prone to getting pimples and blackheads. These ingredients will help dissolve the substances that can clog pores and prevent breakouts.
Contour of the eyes: Retinol helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and thickens the delicate skin around your eyes. Masks designed for this area are better tolerated than masks made for other parts of your face.
Cheeks and sides of the face: Masks with vitamin C, peptides and anti-aging properties are perfect for the areas that are the most exposed to the sun. These ingredients help reduce pigment spots and fight the first signs of damage caused by UVA/UVB rays, such as a loss of elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles.
A daily dose of moisture
To keep your skin nourished and your summer glow going strong all season long, BB creams with SPF are just the thing! This type of multi-purpose formula will moisturize your skin, even out your complexion, and keep you looking radiant all day long.
REACH FOR WATERPROOF MASCARAS AND EYE PENCILS
Can your eye makeup stand up to the heat and humidity of summer events? Waterproof mascaras and eye pencils stay put all day, even during heat waves! They’re a great way to make your eyes pop without worrying about your makeup running. And while you’re at it, why not swap your classic black liner for a fun, fresh summery hue?
PROTECT YOUR NAILS TO KEEP THEM HEALTHY
Popular summer pastimes like swimming, camping, and gardening can be hard on nails, so they’ll need a little extra TLC if you want to keep them looking their best.
As soon as the nice weather hits, make sure to apply a protective varnish or strengthening gel to your nails. These treatments contain vitamins and minerals that will make your nails strong and ready to stand up to whatever you put them through!
If your nails are damaged, brittle, or split, applying a nail repair treatment is the best course of action.
CHOOSE VACATION-READY COSMETICS
Summer is also a great time to declutter your makeup kit and add new multi-functional products that will save you space and money! 2-in-1 (and 3-in-1) products are designed to be practical and versatile, making them perfect for vacation! Look for products like mascara with an eyeliner tip on the other end, lip gloss that doubles as cream blush or eye shadow, and foundation/concealer combos.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR LIPS ALL SUMMER LONG
To properly moisturize your lips and protect them from the sun, keep a lip balm or gloss with SPF on hand. Choose a pink, coral, or peach shade to subtly highlight your lips. The wet look will give you a soft and beautiful smile!
