Glow Up This Summer With These Beauty Tips
During the summertime, it is always nice to be able to wake up in the morning and go straight upside wearing our natural face. Wearing makeup during the summer is great, but when we are on holiday we don’t always want to put lots of products onto our face. Here are some of the skincare essentials you need to know to keep your skin super soft and supple this summer for a natural glow.
The first of our skin care tips, of course, talk about the face. Our face is a huge part of our identity and therefore looking after the skin on our face seems like the most important thing in the world. To make sure that our face stay shiny and youthful this summer, you need to follow a simple and effective routine. Y
ou can wash your face with a gentle cleanser twice a day, moisturise twice a day, exfoliate three times a week and apply a face mask once a week for a detox. You can also use the Bisous™ | The Premium Reusable Makeup Remover to remove makeup at the end of the day. Your skin is an indication of how healthy you are inside, so also make sure that you eat foods with plenty of vitamin c to keep it healthy and young.
Make up for the weather
If you are getting dressed up and wearing makeup during the summer months, you won’t want to be using the same foundation as you do during the winter. Not only will it likely be too light for your face, but it will also be too thick. For a simple summer look, you will want to go for a B.B. cream or a tinted moisturiser with SPF to make sure that you have protection against the sun and you can look natural and glowing. Summer is about a healthy glow, so don’t cover your skin completely.
The most important thing that you need to remember and take away from this post is that you must apply sunscreen every single day. It doesn’t matter if you plan to be in the sun for hours or not, make sure that you protect your skin against the UV rays which can damage it and cause your skin to burn up. Protecting your skin will stop you from peeling and blistering, and on the whole, it will keep your skin looking healthy and plump all summer long.
Use the kitchen
There are always some really great skincare tips that you can take from your pantry, and different natural ingredients will do different things for your skin and it’s overall look. For a helpful blemish remover, you can mix a small amount of honey and turmeric, place it on the spot and leave for an hour before rinsing off. For a glowing complexion, you can take an egg white and use this as a face mask for 30 minutes or so before washing off. Think about what items you can use and it will save you money on skincare products.
Eyes and lips
During the summertime we need to make sure that we take care of the more fragile parts of our body. The eyes and the lips are the most sensitive parts of our face and therefore we need to make sure they don’t get dry or burnt in the warmer weather. Think about applying a couple of cucumber slices to your eyes after a day in the sun and keep them on for 30 minutes before taking them off. You can also buy a spray for the eyes to make sure they stay hydrated. For the lips, make sure to moisturise them often and also think about applying some oil such as coconut oil onto them in the mornings to keep them soft and plump throughout the day.
One of the issues we often have during the summer is sweating. It is nothing to be embarrassed about and everyone suffers the same during the hot weather. However, where this can be an issue is where our skin is concerned, and if we don’t keep our skin clean we can end up with blocked pores and blackheads, think about making sure that you wash your skin thoroughly twice a day, even if it is with cold water. Keeping the skin fresh will keep it happy and you are much less likely to suffer from any other issues with the skin.
Hydrate the body
During the summer we lose a lot of fluid through sweating, and therefore it is more important than ever to keep hydrated. Keeping the skin happy and young means drinking and eating enough water in our diet. If you hate water you can always add fruit to it to make it taste better, and if you want hydrating foods you can eat things such as melons and cucumber each day. Your body will be able to use this water to plump up the skin cells and flush out toxins.
If you want to stay comfortable and avoid sweating too much in the summer, why not make sure that you are wearing breathable clothes? You can wear things like vests, flowing dresses and shirts which allow air to flow through your body and against your skin to keep it cool and comfortable all day long.
Get out in the sun
Although the sunlight can have some interesting effects on our skin, it can also be amazing for our body overall. The sun is amazing and it can brighten even the darkest of moods. If you are feeling stressed or sad, get out into the sun and enjoy it. For your physical health, exposure to the sun allows our body to produce vitamin d which is essential for muscle repair and our skin. Getting enough sun doesn’t just give you a warming glow, but it is also good for you. If there isn’t a better reason to get outside in the sun this summer and have fun, we don’t know what is!
