Summer is here, and it’s time to start thinking about your beach beauty routine. Whether you’re planning a summer vacation abroad or simply hope to spend some days at the great beaches at home in the U.S., making sure that you look and feel your best on your beach days is a must. From hair care tips on the beach to making sure that you skin is smooth and glowing, we’ve put together a selection of the best summer and beach beauty techniques that you should definitely consider adding to your beauty routine this season.
Smooth and Soft Skin
Throughout the winter, it’s not unusual to let go a bit when it comes to body hair. After all, you’re covering up every time that you step outside, so there’s no need to spend any longer than you have to getting ready. But, on the beach, you’re baring next to nothing in a bikini, so for most girls, having smooth, hair-free skin is a must. But, don’t just stop at shaving your legs, underarms and bikini line – making sure that your skin is hydrated and moisturized adequately is absolutely essential if you want to avoid shaving rashes and bumps and keep your skin in the best condition. For a perfect bikini line shave, why not invest in a bikini trimmer? See this guide to the best bikini trimmer for more information. Along with this, don’t forget to keep your skin safe by applying sunscreen when you go outside.
Hair Care Tips
During the summer, those with colored hair will find that their color fades quicker than usual and you might even find light streaks in your hair if you’re spending a lot of time in the sun. If your hair is dyed blonde, you’ll need to be extra careful to ensure that you don’t end up with orange locks from too much exposure to the sun’s rays. Summer is a time of year where your hair may feel dryer than usual, but it’s important not to overdo it with cosmetic products as no matter how tempting this may be, your hair will actually end up in worse condition. Instead try to keep your hair covered as much as possible, avoid using heated tools, and use a good leave-in conditioning treatment regularly to replace the moisture to your locks.
Summer is the one time of year where you want to look your best, but wearing too much makeup really isn’t an option. During the hotter weather, overloading your face with makeup can make you feel hot, sweaty and clammy – not a good idea. Instead, this summer go for the ‘no makeup’ look where you literally wear enough makeup to cover your blemishes, but without looking like you actually have any on. Rather than going for full coverage with foundations and other products, pay attention to eye makeup or lip looks which will still enhance your looks without creating a barrier between your skin and the sun.
Looking and feeling your best means that you can have the best summer possible! These beauty tips will help make sure that you rock the beach this season.
