Arm Yourself WithThese10 Beauty Products That’ll Keep You From Grossing In Heat
The summer season is here. A season where you bid goodbye to puff jackets and humidifiers, instead you embrace pool parties, lounging with friends and beachy days in its full glory. It is also the time to steer clear of heavy, full-overage foundations and powders and go for uber-hydrating foundations and creamy lipsticks. Something that is lightweight, low maintenance and doesn’t suffocate your skin while prepping you for steamy heat waves and summer flings. Here are 10 such products:
Ditch Non-Drying Moisturising Face Wash with Foam-Based Face Wash
A foaming face wash will help you in dealing with excess sweating while keeping the skin unoccluded and decreasing acne breakouts. While removing makeup and other impurities, it gently cleanses skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and revitalised.
Ditch Full Coverage Foundation with Hydrating Moisturiser
While this moisturiser is not going to give you full-blown coverage, but a hydrating moisturiser does a great job of hiding uneven skin tone and providing good hydration to the skin. It is like makeup that doesn’t feel like makeup but just your own skin to you!
Make Sure Your Sunscreen Has Cooling Properties
Go for a lightweight texture sunscreen that totally changes into a water lotion and gives a refreshing effect. A water-formula sunscreen helps in not only providing protection against UVA/UVB filters, but it also calms the skin, making it comfortable for sensitive skin too.
Spritz on Face Mist
Keep a rosewater (or even flower) scented mist in your ice chest always. An antioxidant-filled face mist does a great job of cooling down while strengthening the outer layer of yours skin.
Ditch Layers of Lips Moisturisers With SPF Lip Balm
Do not let the summer breeze take a toll on your lips. This summer, go for a summer lip balm with SPF 15 that is rich with softening nutrients while protecting you from environmental damage. The castor and orange oil soothes summer dryness, while the peppermint oil and wild-harvested beeswax awakens lip skin and locks in moisture, respectively.
Slough Away Dry Skin with a Refreshing Mask
While the humidity level rises, the skin tends to heat up creating a bumpy, inflamed appearance. Exfoliate during summer using a rich layer of deep-cleansing mud mask for at least twice in a week. The natural cranberry seeds will help draw out impurities and detoxify the skin completely.
Ban the Nightime Dryness with Night Cream
A night cream helps in illuminating the skin colour and promoting cell growth. It also helps in perking up the skin tone, reducing dark circles and halting the process of ageing. It also has liquorice – an antiseptic – that does a wonderful job of protecting against fungal and bacterial infections.
Embrace BB Cream with SPF for a Tinted Glow
Increased sun exposure can increase freckles and darker complexion. To safeguard your skin, apply a BB cream with sunscreen-slathering duties. The micro-pigment capsules of such formulas give a nude look with flawless, ultra-light coverage for enhanced natural complexion.
Replace Face Powder with Blotting Paper
Do not let your face turn into an oil puddle by the evening. Always keep some blotting paper handy. To nix the shine, powders won’t do justice in summer, but it would look caked-on and too obvious in summer season. Instead, go for blotting paper that absorbs all the oil and gunk without adding extra product to your face.
Smell Good with Longwear Perfumes
With sweat and repulsive body odour adding to your summer skin woes, a good long-lasting perfume will do a kick-ass job of freshening you up. With subtle notes of pear, fruity punch, juicy mandarin, orange blossom, peach nectar and honeysuckle, this perfume will do just the right job of freshening you and your senses up instantly!
