The Best Summer Beauty Products
Happy second day of summer! I thought it would be appropriate to create the ultimate guide to the best summer beauty products. Since beauty products are something that we use every day but may not always pay attention to the health of our skin.
This is also a time when we get ready to pack out bags for a vacation, mini getaway or trip to the beach. Which means spending more time outdoors in the sun. Even if you only plan on lounging by the swimming pool this summer, your skin deserves the best care and protection.
Finding The Best Summer Beauty Products
When it comes to choosing the best summer beauty products, here are some simple tips to keep in mind:
- use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher
- use makeup products containing an SPF of at least 30
- for sensitive skin, avoid using a sunscreen with chemicals
- don’t mistake a tanning product for a sunblock
- apply a generous amount of sunblock until all areas are covered
- take your sunscreen with you and reapply every 2 hours for the least; more times if sweating a lot
- follow instructions before using product
- if its a spray, spray the product into your hands before applying on face and body
- throw away your sunblock after it has expired (usually 3 years)
- use a lipgloss with an SPF and stay away from shiny lipglosses
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40
As I indicated above, your best bet is a water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. Supergoop! has an SPF of 40 and it also keeps your makeup in place giving it a velvety soft, matte finish.
