Glowing skin and beach hair goals

- - No comments

Smooth, sun-kissed skin, a bronzed, glowing complexion, and beachy hair waves will ensure you look your poolside best this summer.

Radiant skin made easy

Harsh summer temperatures can leave your body looking dry, dehydrated, and ashy. The best way to ensure that the golden glow of your face radiates onto the rest of your body is to regularly exfoliate, as this will buff away any dead skin cells on the surface to reveal a silky-smooth outer layer. Thereafter, moisturise with an SPF-loaded hydrating lotion or body cream, and lastly, for those wanting a sun-kissed sheen, adding a body product infused with bronzer or golden shimmery pigments will leave you with an enviable faux-holiday glow.


Clever ways to skip foundation

A summer tan should leave your skin radiantly glowing and more evenly toned. Therefore, when it comes to choosing a make-up look, we recommend ditching foundation entirely — just spot-treat imperfections with a concealer. To further enhance your golden skin, dust a deep bronzer all over your face including your collarbone, add a wash of copper to your lids, a rose flush to your cheeks and a glossy nude to your lips — the perfect beach-to-bar look, for sure!


Keep your skin hydrated throughout the day

On those sweltering days, you need to keep your skin hydrated with every step of your beauty routine, as well as throughout the day. Try adding a hydrating mist to your regime. A waterproof mascara, cream blusher and juicy lip stain are great make-up must-haves that also beat the heat and have major staying power.


Products to beat your skin's nemesis: UV rays

It goes without saying that applying sunscreen year-round is essential but during the summer months you’ve got to be on high alert. If you are planning to spend a full day outdoors you can never be too prepared. Apart from applying a high-factor sunscreen, it would also be wise to layer on make-up with a built-in SPF, as well as protect your face with accessories such as hats and sunglasses.
