Every girl aspires to be beautiful in some way or the other, and each is blessed with the beauty of their own kind. While different hairstyles and make up trends come and go, here we have listed out some beauty do’s and don’ts that we think will last forever.
1: IF YOU’VE BEEN OUTDOORS FOR LONG, WASH OR WIPE YOUR FACE IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU GET HOME:
When you finally make it back home after a long day in the great outdoors, make sure that you wash your face with a preferred face wash or use a wet wipe. The skin on your face is sensitive and every time you go outdoors, you’re subjecting it to large amounts of heat and dust. If allowed to remain, this will create blotches and pimples. Thus, make sure that you wash your face or carry a packet of wet wipes with you. You’d be surprised at the amount of grime that gets washed off!
2: USE A SUNSCREEN:
Make sure that you use a sufficient amount of sunscreen before you step out into the sun. This will protect you from sun tan and burns that can damage your skin. Remember to carry it with you and reapply it on extremely hot days. Also, ensure that you apply the sunscreen BEFORE using a moisturiser or any makeup for maximum protection.
3: DON’T FORGET TO KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED:
Drinking ample amounts of water will keep you hydrated in the summer, which in turn will contribute towards healthy, glowing skin. Thus, ensure that you carry a water bottle with you whenever you step out to pretend dehydration and tiredness.
4: DON’T FORGET TO KEEP YOUR MAKEUP LIGHT:
During hot summers, make sure that you avoid cakey makeup and instead keep it light and breezy. This will ensure that that the heat doesn’t turn your face into a gooey mess by the end of the day. Use light moisturisers instead of heavy foundation. In short, follow the ‘less is more’ rule during summers.
5: DO STORE YOUR MAKEUP PROPERLY:
If you have ever left makeup in your bag on a hot summer’s day and spent a lot of time outdoors, you’ve probably noticed that makeup melts. To ensure that your makeup stays in perfect condition, keep them in a cool protective place where they won’t melt and turn into a liquid mess in your bag.
6: DO REMEMBER TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR:
The summer heat can damage your hair as much as it does your skin so make sure you take care of it. Use hats, caps or scarfs when you go outdoors for long periods of time, and if you do happen to expose your hair to the heat, ensure that you wash and condition it well when you get back home.
7: DON’T OVERDO YOUR EYES:
To avoid looking like a panda, ensure that you don’t end up using too much mascara, kohl or eyeliner on your eyes during summers. This is because, despite being waterproof, the heat can still make them smudge and drip down your face, making you look like a dark mess.
8: FINALLY, DON’T FORGET TO HAVE FUN!
Following all these tips does not mean you have to stay makeup free, wrap up every inch of your skin if you’re going outside or stay indoors. Summers are for long walks, bright clothes and lipstick shades and a lot of fun in the outdoors. Just make sure to take these precautions and you can go soak up all the Vitamin D you’d like!
