7 Best Summer Face Skincare Tips
Summer is approaching and with fun days in the sun planned, sun burns may come with it. Your face is the piece of your body that has the most sun exposure every day. Everyone knows you should apply sun screen but there are lots of other tips to help keep your skin cool, moisturized, and protected from the sun. Check out our Summer Face Skincare Tips to keep your first skin glowing and healthy this summer.
Wake up, Sunscreen On
Would your answer be every morning if someone asked you when you apply sunscreen to your face? It should be! Driving to work, sitting by windows, and walking to a coffee shop all expose you to the suns UV rays. Your first step everyday and especially during the summer is to cleanse your face then apply a strong sunscreen. Make sure you are getting product that is specifically meant for your face. Generic sunscreens meant for your body can lead to breakouts and dryness.
Protect Your Pout
Most people apply sunscreen to their entire face but forget to apply on their lips! While slathering your sunscreen on your lips isn’t the best tip, finding a lip balm with SPF to use through out the day is! To protect your pout from the suns drying rays, try out Supergoop! Acai Fusion Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This will help keep your lips moisturized, is all natural, and in a small tube that can be easily taken with you wherever you go. Try this out alone or under your favorite summer lip color like we do for our photoshoots!
Keep It Cool
Overheating is one of the most dangerous parts of summer. You can easily tell if you are getting too hot by your skin on your face turning red. To combat this, we always pack a facial mist to take with us to every beach or pool day. Found at any makeup store, these Evian Mineral Water Facial Sprays help restore cool and give you a mini refreshing facial. Evian also removes harmful ocean water, pool water chlorine, and perspiration salt from your skin. For an added bonus to this Summer Face Skincare Tips, pop it in your ice cooler for an extra refreshing kick!
Powder Your Nose
While summer beauty magazines are showing bronzed babes all over their covers, many of them are faking that bronzed glow, and you can too! Try a tinted moisturizer a shade darker than your normal color instead of spending hours trying to get a tan by laying out in the sun exposed to UV rays. A cult favorite is definitely Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer that also comes with SPF 20.
