We all have that ideal summer – unplanned getaways and weekend road trips – but the scorching temperature could be a real bitch. Get in the summer state-of-mind minus the hassle with these beauty essentials that you never knew you actually need. Here’s the rundown of must-have summer beauty essentials that you need to throw in your kit:
Get washing with fast cleanser
An easy-to-use cleansing water takes off the day’s makeup, dirt, and summer sweat in a few swipes—no rinsing needed. You must also wash your face at least twice a day with the right face wash While this may seem like a basic step in your skincare routine, it’s an important one.
Never stop moisturizing
The heat of the sun can definitely cause dry and oily skin, even breakouts too! Best to pack with moisturizer – preferably that one with aloe vera to soothe the skin. This will go layers deep into the skin so that the body is left refreshed and nourished, even in the harshest of heat waves.
No-mess moisturizing mist
Perfect for the always-on-the-go gals! To get away with the hassle of applying moisturizing gel or cream, spritz away using a mist all over your face, neck, and chest to protect and keep skin fresh without greasiness.
Keep safe with sunscreen
Sunscreen is our best friend all through summer! Make sure to check the SPF’s and apply it at least 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun. Also, if you’re going to wear makeup, give the sunscreen some time to settle on your skin before you apply other products.
Hair masks that protect
With the constant heat and humid sweaty feels, our hair suffers a lot during summer. The scalp is bound to feel itchy and dirty and your hair may feel too greasy. Shampooing every day can harm your hair texture, so go for a protective hair mask to help restore moisture and natural shine of your hair.
Cream hassle-free blush
Compared to pressed powder or loose blush, cream blush blends easily into bare moisturized skin and leaves a dewy, healthy-looking finish. Remember to blend a sheer coral shade onto the apples of cheeks and up toward the temple.
Chic lip balm with SPF
A chapped and dry lips is a no-no in the photo! Do not forget to throw in a lip balm in your kit. Every time you’re thinking of applying lipstick, try and put it over your lip balm to give your lips some extra protection.
Lipstick or gloss is an important basic beauty essential. Get your lips nourished lips and add a healthy wash of color – pinks, nudes or orange if you’re feeling giddy and bold! Include at least one lipstick shade that is different from what you usually wear.
A black shade will make eyes pop and it’s great for looking hip and fab this summer. If you already have dark lashes, you might want to try a clear mascara to give your lashes a nice sheen while some can also be used to fix the brow.
Hopefully, this checklist will help you get through the summer season looking all tan but glammed up! What are some of your essentials? Feel free to share them!
