Bid your last goodbyes to the cold weather because hot weather is fast approaching. You know it is almost summer time when you feel short of breath and perspiring even while sitting quietly in your workspace. For Western countries, they still have a few months to enjoy the cold weather before the scorching heat of the sun strikes again. But for Asian countries, they are most probably basking in sun’s glory by now.
Regardless of where you are from, one thing is for sure – summer is fast approaching and you need to stock up on the must have beauty products appropriate for the season. Using or carrying over the same beauty products from winter to summer is actually a common mistake of everyone.
It is imperative for men and women to know the difference between the skin and hair care products that must be used during winter and summer months. The weather directly affects the skin. Skin experts have always reiterated how extreme weather conditions exacerbate all sorts of skin problems.
During cold weather, the skin may need more moisturizing agents as cold temperature dries out skin fast. But during hot weather, humans tend to perspire more, therefore producing more oil. In this case, skin breakouts are more common along with heat rashes.
Here are our must-have beauty products for this summer to help you maintain a healthy skin:
This tops our list of must-haves for all seasons. Regardless of season, you should always remember to apply sunscreen to block sun’s harmful rays. Last winter, we advised everyone that despite the fact that it is dark and gloomy, there still could be harmful rays from the sun that can still cause potential skin damage.
Now, imagine the damage that can be caused by sun’s rays during summer where you see and feel the sun’s scorching heat. If you plan to take a dip in the pool or the beach, do remember to reapply sunscreen protection every three to four hours to ensure maximum protection and avoid unwanted sunburns.
2. Lip and Cheek Tints
You may find this so girly or so college-like but believe us, lip and cheek tints come very handy during the summer season where you would just want to avoid makeup smears on all the wrong places.
However, be wise in deciding which one to buy. These now come in gel, cream, and liquid types. We like the liquid ones best since it is water based and some even claim to be waterproof so imagine perfectly blushing and glowing under the bright sun in your summer outfit.
3. Tinted Lip Balm
This is another option for lip tints. Some of you may like these beauty products better especially for those with dry and cracked lips. This gives just the hint of color while moisturizing the lips perfectly.
4. Eye shadow Palette
Summer also means partying until the wee hours of the morning. Whether you plan to party at the beach or right at the heart of the city, make your eyes mysteriously glowing by learning the art of using eye shadow palettes.
5. Nail Polish
Summer means bright colors. If you are not exactly excited about wearing bright colors of beauty products on your face, then brighten up your day with some fun nail polish colors. Go out of your safe zone. Everyone understands it is summer and it is time to have more fun.
It is absolutely called for women to look as natural as they can be during summer. But this does not mean you do not have to look your best. Use some waterproof mascara and some nude makeup for that perfectly glowing summer look.
7. Hair Protection
Just like your skin, the hair also needs protection. Choose a natural product that is free from sulfate to maintain a frizz-free hair during the hot season.
Using bronzers is the best way to be a summer beach goddess. Show off your perfect tan by accentuating your cheeks with a bronzer. Pair it up with some nude lipstick and be ready to capture some hearts at the beach.
Summer is truly a fun time to break away from daily routines and plan your vacation at some faraway beach location. However, it is not so much fun when your skin starts to suffer. Be sure to protect your skin from sun’s harmful rays by purchasing the proper beauty products so that you can have more fun.
