Whether you're spending your days at the beach or simply enjoying the warm weather, these tips will help you stay cool, comfortable, and confident all summer long.
Protect your skin
The most important beauty tip for summer is to protect your skin from the sun. Exposure to harmful UV rays can cause premature aging, sunburn, and even skin cancer. Make sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 20/30, even on cloudy days, and reapply every two hours if you're spending time outdoors. You can also protect your skin by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and long-sleeved clothing. Lola Make Up do a BB cream which has SPF20 included, products like this are amazing.
Keep your makeup light
Heavy makeup can feel uncomfortable in the summer heat, so it's best to keep your makeup light and natural. Opt for a tinted moisturizer with SPF instead of a heavy foundation, and use a cream blush for a subtle glow. Waterproof mascara and eyeliner are also great for the summer months, as they won't smudge or melt in the heat.
Drinking plenty of water is essential for maintaining healthy skin and overall wellbeing. Make sure to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and consider carrying a water bottle with you wherever you go. You can also stay hydrated by eating water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables.
Use moisturising hair products
The summer sun, saltwater, and chlorine can be tough on your hair, leaving it dry and brittle. To keep your locks looking healthy and shiny, use a good shampoo and conditioner with oils and use a deep conditioning hair mask once a week. You can also protect your hair by wearing a hat or a scarf to shield it from the sun. This coral beach shampoo and conditioner is a best seller from Guava & Gold, not only does it smell lush, it is also Enriched with avocado and manuka oils and blended with guava fruit extract, it’ll help restore hair's natural shine and softness and leave it full of strength.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and leaves your skin looking bright and refreshed. However, it's essential to choose the right exfoliator for your skin type and use it in moderation. Too much exfoliation can damage your skin and cause irritation. Aim to exfoliate once or twice a week, and use a gentle, natural exfoliator like sugar or oatmeal.
Go for a pedicure
Summer is the time of year when we show off our feet in sandals and flip flops. Make sure your toes look their best by going for a pedicure. Not only will your feet look great, but a pedicure can also help relieve dry skin and promote circulation. Opt for a light summery colour.
Don't forget about your lips
Your lips need protection from the sun just as much as your skin does. Look for a lip balm with SPF, and reapply throughout the day. You can also exfoliate your lips once a week using a homemade scrub made from sugar and coconut oil.
Switch to lightweight fabrics
Heavy fabrics like denim and wool can be uncomfortable in the summer heat. Switch to lightweight fabrics like cotton, linen, and silk to stay cool and comfortable. These fabrics are also breathable, which helps to prevent sweat and odour.

Remember to protect your skin from the sun, keep your makeup light, stay hydrated, use a hair mask, exfoliate regularly, go for a pedicure, don't forget about your lips, and switch to lightweight fabrics. With these tips in mind, you can enjoy a happy, healthy, and beautiful summer.
