Whether you’re getting ready to hit the beach or relax by the pool, there’s no doubt that summer is here, which means it’s time to stock up of some summer beauty products! From facial cleanser to moisturizer to natural sunscreen, we’ve got some top picks laid out for you.
On hot, humid days, sweat is bound to happen. To avoid sweat, along with makeup, dirt, and oil clogging your pores and causing breakouts, it’s important to wash your face every night with a high quality facial cleanser. Washing your face may seem like a no-brainer, but too often, women tend to rush through the process, making it ineffective. It’s important to remove all makeup first. While your skin is still damp, gently massage your skin for one to two minutes to thoroughly remove dirt and oil. Finally, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Long gone are the days where we are willing to sacrifice our health for a deep summer tan. But did you know that many sunscreens contain harmful chemical ingredients that can still cause damage to our skin? Opt for natural sunscreen that uses vitamins and antioxidants which will help promote healthy, more youthful skin when worn on a regular basis. When searching for the best sunscreen, it’s important to ensure it’s healthy; the EWG (the Environmental Working Group) provides consumers with an annual guide to safe sunscreens. They list harmful chemicals to stay away from and steer consumers to the safest sunscreens on the market.
Aside from the weather, there are many other aspects that can dehydrate the skin including pollution, stress, and poor diet. The best way to re-hydrate each day is a high quality moisturizer. Applying moisturizer also offers the benefit of stimulating the skin by improving the circulation of blood to the body – this also helps boost collagen levels. Reduction of collagen aids in the amount of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin we experience as we age. Moisturizer can also act as a primer in the morning before applying makeup to help give your makeup a base to stick to, ideal for hot days where sweat is inevitable. Keep in mind though, that moisturizer isn’t only for dry skin; oily skin still benefits from moisturizer during the summertime.
These products are all easy to find and are perfect for summer – you can worry less about your appearance with long lasting, effective products and more about having fun… which is what it’s all about, right?
