With summers come a hoard of skin woes as the harsh sun rays during this season have terrible effects on our skin. Hence the products that we use during this season should target the effects of sun exposure on our skin and also not be too heavy or oily on the skin which might lead to breakouts by blocking skin pores. So with the weather heating up again it’s time to reorganize your list of beauty essentials to make you look flawlessly beautiful and at the same time soothe and protect your skin during those warm summer months.
Here Is A Checklist Of Beauty Must-haves That Deserve A Space In Your Beauty Bags This Summer.
1. Exfoliating Facial Cleanser
The first thing to consider during those dreary warm days is to keep your skin clean. So it would be wise to invest in a facial cleansing scrub that removes every trace of makeup, dirt and keeps the skin super smooth and moisturized.
2. CC Cream
The latest buzz in the beauty industry is about the CC creams which are modified versions of BB creams. A CC cream acts as a complexion corrector, sunscreen, moisturizer and anti-ageing formula all at the once. The special light weight formula of CC creams makes them an ideal replacement for those heavy foundations in summer months.
3. Sunscreen Spray
Though most summer beauty products are formulated with sunscreen you still need to carry a sunscreen that you can spray onto your face and body whenever the need arises. It’s the single most beauty aid that delays skin ageing which is mostly caused by sun exposure. Opt for a sunscreen with an SPF higher than 30.
4. Face Mist
Another must-have on our list is a face mist to instantly freshen up your face and will give a much needed respite from summer heat. Spritz it over your face every time your skin feels clogged up.
Summers are incomplete without that beautiful tan you get after spending hours on the beach under the sun. Such tan however comes at a price as to achieve it our skin has to bear the brunt of harsh UV rays which in turn speeds up skin’s ageing process. Therefore, it’s best to fake a tan using a bronzer.
6. Gel Eyeliner
As it happens, our regular eyeliner gets washed down with sweat in summers but with a gel eyeliner this is certainly not the case as the thick and sticky texture endures moisture and sweat and stays put for long in hot climates.
7. Lip And Cheek Tint
Summers are all about looking beautiful naturally. A lip tint will enhance the beauty of your face by adding colour without making you look overdone. A bit of this tint on your cheeks will bring a healthy flush of colour to your face. For more drama you can use a tinted shimmery lip gloss in coral or peach shades.
8. Clear Mascara
Yet another beauty essential you need to carry in your summer beauty bag is a transparent mascara to add depth to your face without weighing down your eyes in summer heat. Before you wear a mascara make sure that you curl your lashes to maximize the effect.
9. Translucent Powder
Last but not the least a quick dab of light translucent powder every once in a while will give your face a flawless matte finish and will soak the oils or sweat that your skin releases in summers.
