Every Woman’s Guide to A Glamorous Summer

It is every woman’s goal to always look her best all throughout the year, but once we reach the calendar months of March or April, the pressure is double. Summer is an exceptional time for anyone who loves the holidays, vacations, and bikinis.

As you plan your getaways, here are some tips on how you can get yourself ready for your most beautiful and glamorous summer vacation:

Glorious Tresses

It’s not only your skin that needs protection from the sun. Use hair care products that have UV protection. Look for products with sunflower or helianthus annuus which is an all-natural UV protectant that does not only protect your hair from the sun. It also acts an emollient which provides and locks in moisture. But, cut down on shampoo so you can allow your scalp’s oil production to re-balance itself which is very important for moisture especially during this season.

Wear hats or hair scarves to instantly guard your hair from the harmful sun exposure. If you have enough time to fix your hair, go for the messy braids or gentle up-dos.

Visit the salon for a haircut or a deep conditioning treatment. Take advantage of the hair care summer promos at Jing Monis Salon and Louis Phillip Kee.

Glowing Skin

Getting the perfect tan or sun-kissed skin is very tricky because most people end up suffering from sunburn. Opt for a self-tanner so you can get the glow minus the damage. To make sure that you get an even complexion, avoid scents with citrus notes like bergamot because there’s a high possibility for you to develop dark spots in the sun.

When exfoliating, use a grainy scrub or puff to slough off dull, dead skin cells in the shower. However, use gentle circular motions to avoid redness, irritation, tightness, dryness, flaking skin, stinging, and burning sensation. Before getting a facial or diamond peel, consult a dermatologist. There are credit card deals that offer promos with free derma consultations and discounts on services. 

On sunscreen, Dr. Debra Jaliman, a New York-based dermatologist advises, “Get into a habit of using sunscreen always, even on cloudy days as UV light penetrates the clouds. Sun damage is cumulative. And don’t forget to protect your lips. If you are oily, use a light lotion, gel, or powder. And, if you have dry skin, use a moisturizing one.”

Barely-There Makeup

Never (ever) wear too much makeup during summertime. Aside from the fact that you may instantly become the talk of the town, wearing layers of foundation and color can actually keep you from parading that glowing skin.

Apply minimal makeup. Only use foundation and concealer on dark spots. Skip the eye shadow and go straight to applying luminizer on your brow bones (under your eyebrows), cheekbones, down the center of your nose, and in the dip of your cupid’s bow. You can also dab some luminizer along the high point of your collarbone. Choose a light coral or pink shade for cheeks and lips.

Hairless Summer

While you may be ready to flash your Photoshop-looking bods, going hairless may save you from a Chewbacca nightmare! If you’re a fan of shaving, you might as well rethink your beauty regimen because shaving causes skin darkening and chicken skin.  Go to the waxing salon or skin clinic for a laser hair treatment.

Make sure that you schedule your waxing or laser hair treatment appointment at least seven days prior to swimming even if it’s a pool.

Mark your calendars with icons for each of these tips before you hit the beach, and be ready for your best summer yet!
