Let’s face it, each and every one of us wants to look the best versions of ourselves when it comes to summer vacations. After all, many of us end up sharing our lovely pictures, videos, and boomerangs with friends and family via social media apps such as Instagram.
So if you have decided on your next summer vacation spot and are looking for tips and tricks to look flawless and beautiful, we have got you covered.
In this article, we share the top beauty tips that you need to follow regardless of whether your summer plans involve traveling to the beach, roaming around cobblestoned streets, or spending time in the big city.
Opt For Laser Hair Removal
Summer means showing off a little bit of skin and adorning those cute little sundresses. But if you are constantly having to worry about shaving, bleaching, or waxing, we have got three magic words for you – laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that involves beams of light directed towards hair follicles to permanently destroy them. This has gained considerable momentum over the last few years due to the amazing results of silky smooth skin for both men and women.
The best part is that it is safe, effective, and doesn’t have any side effects. From full body to only Brazilian laser hair removal, you can consult with a professional esthetician for the approximate number of sessions you will require, the kind of laser technology that is best for your skin and hair type, and a detailed treatment plan.
One of the most widely given yet often ignored advice regarding summer is wearing sun protection. Ideally, sunscreen should be part of your daily skincare routine throughout the year. However, the summer sun can be unforgiving and the direct rays have the potential to harm your skin, because of which you have to step up your sunscreen game.
Apart from helping to avoid sunburn, there are many benefits of wearing sunscreen. These include limiting the appearance of sunspots from prolonged exposure, slowing down signs of aging such as wrinkles, reducing the risk of skin cancer, and preventing the thinning of blood vessels.
Make sure you use SPF 50 or higher and apply it at least 30 minutes before stepping out. Apply a generous layer on all the exposed parts of your body, paying close attention to often ignored areas such as the ear, hands, and the back of the neck. Generally, you will want to reapply sunscreen every three to four hours.
Follow A Strict Skin Routine
Summer vacation is not an excuse to slack on your skincare routine. Remember, skin is the first layer of protection and having clear and radiant skin is automatically going to make you look beautiful.
You should cleanse your face twice a day and put on a purifying clay mask followed by a hydrating mask once or twice a week. This will help clear out dirt and blackheads that may collect on your face after roaming around all week. Secondly, since a lot of traveling is involved, you may want to make use of a face roller or a gua sha to improve blood circulation, reduce puffiness, and make your skin glow and feel less tired.
Additionally, opt for lightweight moisturizers if you are visiting a particularly hot country. You may also want to invest in a quality vitamin C serum to battle any hyperpigmentation and improve collagen production during your summer vacation.
Importantly, don’t just care for your facial skin, but also pay attention to the rest of the body. Ideally, use a physical or chemical body exfoliator or scrub once or twice a week in the shower to shed all that dead skin. This will leave you with silky and smooth skin so that you look extra fabulous.
Choose The Right Makeup
Choosing the right makeup products will be a gamechanger for your summer looks. We know how annoying it is to have the perfect makeup and have it melt in the heat. This is why our suggestions will, quite literally, change your life!
First, choose an oil-free moisturizer or better yet, go for a tinted moisturizer for a light and natural look and top up with a high coverage concealer wherever you feel it is needed. Second, you want to opt for waterproof mascara and brow setting gel to achieve a truly flawless look. You also want to skip putting on a lot of highlighter and instead, reach out for your bronzer for a sultry look. Moreover, ditch the lip gloss and go for lip balm and lipstick.
To keep your makeup intact, layer a pea-sized amount of primer under the foundation and concealer and top off with a translucent setting powder and makeup setting spray.
Getting yourself ready for the summer is exciting and full of possibilities. So get shopping for cute outfits and stock up on the necessary products that you will need to look uber chic and in vogue.
Don’t forget to wear a pair of cute sunglasses and some delicate jewelry before stepping out.
