Summer Makeup Tips: Protect your Skin in the Summer

Summer is just around the corner, too much sun exposure can cause skin aging and sun damage to your skin. Well, sun exposure isn’t necessarily bad because it is key source of Vitamin D too, so it is important to keep exposure in moderation. Below are simple beauty tips for healthy summer skin:

Protect Your Skin

Your skin will still suffer from excess ultraviolet exposure, unless you use beauty products with sunscreen, even if you are nowhere near a beach. Save yourself some wrinkles and use a moisturizer, or apply sunscreen about half an hour before leaving your home if you know you’ll be outdoors for a long time. A hat will not only look cute, it will also protect the delicate skin of your face and your hair from excessive ultraviolet radiation when you are walking to the office.

Exchange Foundation for Tinted Moisturizer

Nothing screams more of summer than naked, glowing skin. But it’s perfectly understandable if the idea of leaving your foundation on your makeup bag gives you the shivers, so why not change it for a tinted moisturizer or a product with a touch of self-tan? It’s also a good moment to update your makeup bag with lipsticks that have a heavy moisturizer component, as your lips will crack with the sun and the heat, especially if you are outdoors in the sun.

Simplify your Makeup

Not only heavy makeup is simply not fashionable in summer, but it can also block your pores more than usual when you take into account the extra heat and potential sweating, leading to spots and skin irritation. Powder foundations can cake with the heat and the sweat and peel off, looking like something went really bad with your skin, but you can use some oily skin cleaning wipes to remove excess shine and gently tap them on the oily areas of your face when required, instead of trying to cover everything up with makeup. Invest in waterproof products and a good makeup remover so you can sunbathe in the beach while looking great.
