With summer on the way, and the beautiful sun up in the sky, you need to know what you will need to survive the heat, the UV rays, prevent sweating and keeping your skin healthy. Often times we forget that our skin is sensitive and we leave our homes without the proper protection. Make up is another obstacle women face in the hot summer days, when the mascara comes off, sweat wipes off the make up from your face etc. This post is all about what you need this summer considering beauty. Scroll down for some awesome things you must have in your purse when heading out. Make sure to comment about your habits and routines.
1. Baby Powder
The baby powder will come in handy every time you leave your home. How? Well, you can use the baby powder as a deodorant and as a dry shampoo when your hair gets greasy (that’s quite common in summer because you are sweating more). Leaving the beach with sand on your toes? Sprinkle some baby powder and the sand will get off easily.
2. Nude Nail Polish
With the nude nail polish you can refresh your manicure often and not worry about chips and spoiling your nails. The nude color goes well with every piece of clothing you own, and it is always trendy. Make sure to carry it with you in your bag.
3. Makeup Setting Spray
A make up setting spray is a must this summer. It will make your make up last from 8-10 hours. If you want to make a setting spray at home then mix destilled water and glycerin. Put it in a spray bottle and spritz your face after applying make up.
4. Coconut Oil
The coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer for dry hands, body lotion, make up remover and a brush cleanser! It is indeed a multipurpose item and you will smell amazing after using it, who doesn’t love the smell of coconut? Pack a small jar with coconut body butter or in a spritz bottle add some plain coconut oil.
5. Body Scrub
A body scrub is a necessity for this summer in order to take care of your skin. You can buy or make body scrubs. If you want to make a body scrub then here’s an idea. Fill a small mason jar with sea salt and brown sugar. Stir in some almond oil and gently mix. While in the shower scrub your body and then rinse off with luke warm water.
6. SPF Hair Product
Yes, there is sunscreen for hair. And there are many reasons why you should get some. The hair is a sensitive part of your body and we don’t pay much attention to it like we do with our skin. If you expose your hair to the sun a lot, it can damage, burn etc. In order to protect it get a SPF hair product that you can spritz it on your hair.
In order to get the fresh summer look when going out, apply blush to your cheeks and you will instantly look refreshed and younger. Another great way to use the blush is as an eye shadow, the soft color will look good on any eye color.
8. Sunburn Relief With Aloe Vera
If you haven’t use a sun block with SPF protection and are facing sunburns as a result, then a sunburn relief cream with Aloe Vera will sooth your skin. Aloe Vera has enormous healing powers, simply apply it on your skin and you will instantly feel better.
If you shave your legs then get a bunch of razors. The sun and water will make your hair grow more then usual and that’s why, if you want to have a smooth skin every day, then shave the parts that you usually do every night, use shaving hair and a pre-shave oil to prevent ingrown hair.
10. Oil Absorbing Papers
The oils in the skin are much more active during the summer days, have oil-absorbing papers wherever you go, to preserve your make up and get the annoying glow off of your face. You can even make papers by cutting out pieces of paper toilet seat covers.
