It’s hot. When mercury begins to rise, there goes the makeup. Especially in Austin, Texas. The following tips will help you look your best, sans the sweat. This is everything you need to know about caring for your skin in the summer.
Austin, Texas Summer Skin Care Tips
Summer is fun. From outdoor activities and hobbies to pool parties and long road trips, it can also be parching to your skin. While you’re busy tanning (or preventing sunburn) you skin is begging for a break. And some shade. This guide will ensure your skin looks it best during the brightest season of all.
Sun is drying on sensitive lip tissue. Be diligent about wearing a lip balm that contains an SPF of 15 or higher. This will help lips stay hydrated. And that’s much more kissable than a dry and dehydrated pout.
They feel wonderful, especially after basking in the sun. In addition to feeling good, cool showers are less drying on your skin. Turn the temp down and enjoy.
Heavy foundations and concealers smear during hot weather. Instead of layering on the coverage, opt for a loose powder that contains an SPF. You’ll nix the shine without melting.
Wear a Sun Hat
A sun hat should be part of every girl’s summer wardrobe. Opt for a wide-brim for the ultimate in skin protection. Wear your hat everywhere, especially on the beach or by the pool.
Out with the old and in with the new. Scrub your skin from head to toe before showering and you’ll actually maintain your summer tan longer while imparting a healthy glow. Follow up with an emollient body cream or self-tanning moisturizer for gorgeous skin that’s soft and supple.
Summer is all about legs. Short shorts, skirts, and culottes beg for attention and you can make your legs look their best by wearing a shimmering body lotion. Applying a glimmering lotion or a body oil down the center of your shins will lengthen and slenderize them and add to their sex appeal.
Keep a face and body mist in your fridge to cool and hydrate your complexion throughout the day. When possible opt for a facial such as the HydraFacial to boost moisture, calm and refresh the skin.
If you suffer from melasma or hyperpigmentation, know that the sun is not your friend. Make sure you’re using an SPF daily to prevent further damage, and be sure to use a nightly fade cream to minimize their appearance. You may need a facial or hydroquinone cream to help lighten the damage.
