Your guide to perfect skin this Summer!
As Summer is quickly approaching we need to adapt and alter our skincare and makeup regime. 1) So that our skin is glowing 2) So that our foundation isn’t dripping off of our faces half way through the day. So I am going to give you a couple of tips to stay flawless in the humidity!
- First of all, instead of using a silicone based primer use a prep spray! I like to use the Mac fix plus gold lite. This is because the little specs of glitter help my skin to still look illuminated and glowy.
- Swap your thick foundation for a tinted moisturiser or a B.B. cream. This will make all the difference when having your makeup on all day! It will be a lighter coverage and it will also feel a lot lighter on the skin. If you can’t seem to put down a good foundation just yet, then opt for a lighter coverage foundation. For example, I really like the Benefit oxygen wow foundation for this time of the year. It is so light on my skin and makes me feel like I’m not wearing anything on my face.
- Always wear sunscreen! This sounds like a bit of a mum tip. But I can assure you that it is better to be safe than to be sorry. It is important to wear sunscreen because even if you can't see the sun doesn't mean it isn't there. The rays of the sun are always there and they are dangerous to the skin. Wearing sun cream will also help to keep the skins elasticity which gets damaged in the sun.
Below is a chart of things that you may want to swap to for summer.
As you can see, summer is all about choosing bright colours and lighter products.
