Summer is a time when the sun comes out, and more skin is revealed. As summertime reveals your silhouette more in tighter clothes and legs in shorter shorts, it’s time to make sure that you’ve got your beauty basics covered.
It’s important to feel your best during bikini season, so make sure that your beauty arsenal is full of the essential things you’ll need to feel fabulous. Here are some of the most important things that you should have on your summer beauty checklist.
Slather on the Sunscreen
Since the sun is out during summer, you want to make sure that you’ve got your armor on. Although the sun has numerous benefits for our health, it’s best in small doses. The sun will age you quickly, so it’s crucial to ensure that you create a barrier to avoid its harmful rays.
Try to opt for a sunscreen which is non-oily and waterproof. That way you can comfortably go about your day without worrying about breakouts or having to reapply frequently.
Get a Wax
Rather than shaving every day which can lead to unsightly bumps and rashes, you should opt for the alternative. Shaving is abrasive on your skin and encourages the hair to grow faster.
Although waxing may be a little more invasive and often painful, it’s much more effective at inhibiting hair growth and ingrown hairs.
The more often that you wax, the less that you’ll have to do it. You can do it yourself by purchasing a wax kit, or you can go to a professional who can wax you to your liking. Just make sure to follow proper care following your wax to avoid breaking out in a rash.
Experts recommend using an exfoliant and applying an antibacterial soap after the first 24 hours.
Consider Permanent Makeup
Depending on where you live, certain parts of the world can be hotter than others. If you live somewhere which is particularly humid and hot, chances are that you’re sweating for most of the day.
You may want to consider permanent makeup such as eyelash extensions or microblading eyebrows. This will ensure that your features still pop, giving you a glamorous glow without having to pile on products which will sweat off.
Despite how much sunscreen you have on, the sun can still do damage if you’re exposed for long periods of time. If you’re at the beach often during the summer, make sure that you have a big hat which provides plenty of shade.
Your skin will thank you for it over time!
