It’s July in the Tri-State and that means high humidity and blazing hot temperatures that make you feel like you’re melting into a puddle. But just because it’s sweltering outside doesn’t mean you should go through your day feeling like a sweaty mess. Here are a few beauty tips to help you stay looking fresh no matter how hot it gets outside:
Reduce the layers on your face by using a facial lotion and/or a base foundation with SPF and use a primer to keep your makeup in place all day so that you don’t have to deal with your face melting off and reapplying which can clog pores. And keep oil blotting sheets on hand to get rid of the oils brought out from sweating. Blot, don’t wipe!
Go light on the makeup by using lighter formulas like a BB or a CC cream and use a sponge to ensure that you are applying no more than needed. We also suggest switching to waterproof mascaras and eyeliners to circumvent smudging due to sweat. And lighten up those lips with a transparent gloss to update your look for summer!
Embrace your summer waves by investing in a rich, deep conditioner at least once a week. For those of you with natural curl and a tendency to dryness, get a good leave-in conditioner to lock moisture in. And skip the dryer as often as possible to minimize damage from heat.
