Summer or not, using sunscreen should be a no-brainer. But since the sun is more unforgiving this season, lathering on sunscreen should be bumped up in your priority list. Also, we’re not kidding when we say the sun can make you age faster. If you haven’t started yet, now is the good time to start with anti-ageing products.
Summer also means stickiness. Avoid the icky feeling by switching your heavy cream to a lightweight gel. Plus, refresh your skin by using a face mist or a calming toner. As for the skin on your body — it’s time to switch to a body serum or gel.
Time to say a temporary goodbye to your heavy foundations and start saying hello to face colours with lighter formulation. Think BB, CC and cushion! They provide light to medium coverage with an addition of skincare benefits. Instead of powders, opt for creams and tints for a natural look and lightweight feel.
Add a bit of shimmer to your lids to make your eyes stand out. For the lips, go for stains; swipe them on and see how the colour won’t budge and not dry your puckers out.
If you’re set to attend a special event where you need more colour and coverage, though, just remember this keyword: waterproof.
