Summer Tips

Summer is here, and lets face it we all love being outside during the summer. The sun, the sand, the BBQs…We can’t get enough!  One of my concerns is how I can avoid damaging my skin.  So before you leave the house, it’s important to remember to stock up on the essential sun protection. Try some of my beauty tips for healthy summer skin!

I am a expecting (soon to be mom) and my skin is going through many changes along with the summer season, our skin changes through out the years, season etc. I have put together a few of my summer tips that's has helped me and hopefully will help you!

First and foremost; always protect your skin from UV rays by using sunscreen SPF 30 or higher.

  • Apply foundation only were needed, instead all over your face, or skip it all together... if you are like me who cant live without foundation , use a primer first, and then apply foundation with your fingertips. Once in the sun your face wont be such shock. Light, sheer coverage works best-  use a tinted moisturizer, and apply concealer where needed.
  • Keep hydrated. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.  If you're on the go like most of us are , try bring a container of fresh fruits on the go... anything to prevent dehydration and possible heat stroke.
  • Exfoliate. Depending on what type your skin is, exfoliate 1-2 times a week if you're dry 2-times a week. 
  • Protect your hands and feet too. Your neck, chest, and hands are an instant giveaway to your true age. After moisturizing your face with the  Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30, bring it down to your neck as well. Be sure to apply sunscreen to your chest area as it is one of the areas of your body more susceptible to sunburn. Invest in a hand cream that offers SPF protection, and apply it at least 20 minutes before driving – keep in mind that two-thirds of all sun damage is purely incidental. 

Hope you can apply these to your everyday this summer, to keep your skin from damage and for us to always feel beautiful :)

Enjoy your day!
