Under no circumstances should you jump into a body of water with makeup on unless it is all water-proof. Aside from looking like a member of KISS, you’re likely to have burning and irritation in your eyes from your mascara. This is a big no-no.
We all know that less is usually more in the beauty world. But when it comes to skincare products don’t feel the need to add 3 layers of everything. Just remember to reapply your sunblock as needed and continue with your normal amount of moisturizer. If you’re not careful- you could end up sweating it out all day.
It’s kind of funny that mankind was built to walk upright, but our tootsies are one of the most sensitive spots on our body. Be sure to give them extra love and attention during the summer. Between sweating in your sneakers and drying out in your flip-flops, it’s a hard life for a pair feet. Be sure to find a nice foot lotion and give yourself a daily massage. You’ll feel like a princess almost immediately ;P
While this is really a beauty no no for any time of year, this is especially common in the Summer months. Many women try to over-compensate for their oily complexion by adding extra powder to their face- but this is not the solution. If you are worried about excess oil production or over sweating, try purchasing some oil blotting pads. These can be found for a few dollars at your local convenience stores and also at Sephora for a little more money (around $8.00). Use these a few times a day to gently remove the excess oil and sweat without messing up your makeup. If you over do the powder, you will end up looking like a China Doll gone wrong.
We’ve all heard it before. But over-tanning is not “in” anymore… one could argue it never was. Aside from looking like you might be from another planet of little orange men, this is unsafe for your skin. Keep healthy this summer and use a sunblock. Ask your Dermatologist how much sun exposure is safe each day.
