Summer Beauty Tips We Swear By

Make Sunscreen a Priority

This can not be stressed enough. When going outside, always use sunscreen. Skin is more susceptible to UV rays during the summer months than at any other time. Therefore, leaving your skin exposed can cause irreversible damage.

And remember that sunscreen isn’t just for the body. The UV rays emitted can fry your hair and scalp if left unprotected. Using the right SPF shampoo will keep your head healthy and free from harm. 

Wear the Right Makeup

No one wants to spend the majority of their day reapplying makeup, and the more products applied to keeping the makeup looking fresh, the higher the chances of experiencing breakouts. The solution? Use waterproof products that won’t smear because of the heat. Obviously, applying sunscreen throughout the day on a face full of makeup is not a good idea. So, opt for combination products that already contain SPF.
Keep Aloe Vera on Hand

Because of its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera is great counter to skin irritants. Sunburns, mosquito bites, poison ivy, cuts, and minor wounds can be treated immediately with aloe gel. It can be used as a refreshing face toner and a hair mask, as well. And, in case you forgot to wear sunscreen, the aloe gel can cool down sunburnt skin on contact.
Treat Your Body Right

When even professional athletes suffer from cellulite, it makes you realize that a healthy lifestyle may not be enough. Of course, diet and exercise play a major role in how one's body looks, but genetics is the primary culprit. In a recent study, it was reported that over 80% of women will suffer from cellulite at some point in their lives.

Look your best at all times by investing in body-sculpting treatments, especially those that can be done at home.

Body-sculpting refers to beauty treatments designed to break down fat cells in the body. The company Silk’n has proven products that employ LED light therapy, IR heat, and radio frequency to penetrate the skin and essentially melt away the fat. A high-quality body sculpting device will not only reshape your body by making it leaner and tighter, but it will also increase collagen production for lasting anti-cellulite results.

At-home devices can be used on your abdomen area, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Only a few treatments are needed to achieve desired results. The best part is that you can do this from the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Handle Acne Easily

Speaking of refreshment, drinking water is essential to looking your best. Unfortunately, staying hydrated does not cure you of skin problems like acne. Even when drinking the necessary amounts of water per day, you can still have breakouts on your face, neck, and back.

This is because acne is caused by oil-producing glands. Water consumption does wonders for your skin, as it flushes out toxins from your body — but it does not regulate these glands. Acne is caused by hair follicles becoming blocked with dead skin cells. The blockage prevents oil from secreting and then bacteria begin devouring this oil. The bacteria multiply and, in doing so, cause inflammation on the skin to occur. Regardless of age, all women are prone to acne and should not feel embarrassed by it.

Looking your best this summer doesn’t have to be a challenge. The few minutes a day it takes to apply sunscreen or give yourself an at-home body treatment is worth all the fun in the sun.
