Adapting your beauty routine for the summer

Now that summer is just around the corner, you need to adapt your beauty routine. Here are 4 tips to survive the hot weather.

1

WAGE WAR ON SPOTS AND DULL COMPLEXIONS

If you have brown spots on your body and face, choose a self-tanner that does not contain DHA (an ingredient that can intensify brown spots). Other than caramel self-tanners, opt for tinted creams and bronzing powders.
Creams with AHA, a scrub containing acid fruit, can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. So you’ll want to choose a product that contains AHA and SPF.
Self-tanners create the illusion of thinner arms, legs and thighs and can diminish the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. After you apply the self-tanner, you can enhance the colour with a sparkling dry oil.

QUICK MAKEUP REMOVAL

Trade in your thick cleansing cream for a no-rinse gel or micellar water.

During heat waves, you can use a spray bottle to spritz some thermal water on your face. But remember to dab the excess water because letting it evaporate will dry your skin.

TAILORED PROTECTION

At night, replace your thick moisturizer with a gel cream. During the day you can use a BB cream, preferably one with SPF. If you want more coverage, you can add a dab of foundation.
In the city, many moisturizers can be used as daily sunscreen protection for your face, neck and hands.

THE SMELL OF SUMMER

Heat accentuates heavy scents so you’ll want to use cologne, flowery fragrances that are exotic or fruity, herb scents and citrus aromas. Simply spray a little on your hair (which will naturally absorb the fragrance) as well as on your nape, behind your ears and inside your wrists.
