Summer is here!!!
Summer is here at last and June is the month of the longest day and the excitement of weddings, proms, and Ascot. But how do you look cool and stay cool in the heat and keep looking fresh for all occasions? Here are some tips you could try. Use a good quality primer for under your foundation, this will even out skin tone and prevent foundations sliding off your face. Set with loose translucent powder, if shine appears blot with a tissue – do not rub or re-powder as this causes a cloggy look to the face. A primer under eye shadow is a must to avoid creasing of the colour on the lid. When your look is completed use a water based make-up fixing spray to mist over face to set your make-up. Drinking plenty of water gives a glow to the skin, avoid too much alcohol to prevent that red cheek look. Take a look at our other blogs for more information on all self-love.
Keep your skin soft and silky by using a sunblock on your face to avoid damage which may cause wrinkles and brown spots later in life. Use an SPF of above factor 15 on your face, even on those cloudy days. The neck and chest skin is thinner and more delicate so ensure it is being included in your skin care regime. One of my favourites is an oil, use after toning and before you apply moisturising cream on to the skin. Use a cooling eye gel around the delicate eye area, especially under the eyes, this will help reduce puffiness and dark circles. Cooling eye products may be stored in the fridge for that extra pick me up feeling, then pop on those shades for extra protection. It is vital to protect your eyes on bright days.
Waxing in summer is great to keep your fuzz at bay, so why not book your appointment? We welcome Naz to the team. Naz is an expert in Hollywood and Brazilian waxing. For best waxing results use an exfoliate to keep the skin soft by removing dead skin cells. This will help hair be removed more easily from the skin. Ensure you avoid sunbathing for a few days after waxing to prevent any irritation to your skin. Use Aloe Vera gel in warm weather to prevent reddening of skin.
