Summer is a favorite time of year for many people, and although the warmer temperatures require less in terms of clothing, there are many style tips and tricks you can make use of to help you feel stylish and confident during this fun, exciting season.
Light Makeup: skin likes to breathe, and as long as you stay protected with a good sunscreen to protect against UV rays, the sun can actually have a nice effect on your skin when it’s not being blocked by too much makeup clogging it up. It also feels a lot nicer to have bare skin and just let the sun at it, and if you really feel you need a bit of coverage, then opt for a tinted moisturizer instead of a full on foundation.
Plenty Of Water: one of the best things you can do for your skin, and for your health in general is to drink plenty of water. This means around 6-8 glasses per day for the average adult. Do this for a month, and you’re guaranteed to see massive results in how your skin looks. Add to that a bit of a sun-kissed glow and you’re all set for gorgeous summer skin.
Summer Clothing: obviously during the really hot months, you want to stay cool, but you also don’t want to be overly exposed to the sun, either. A nice sundress that can be worn over your bikini and paired with some simple flat pumps will do the trick and give you a great summer look.
Coconut Oil: this is one of those amazingly versatile products that has pretty much every benefit known to man, from helping dry skin, to whitening teeth, and even helping with weight loss and ulcers, it really is something of a miracle oil. Whatever you do, though: please do not apply this directly to your skin before going into to the sun. It can be used if you get a little burned, and even as an after-sun to prevent burning and dryness, but it can cause major sunburn if used before exposure. It’s also a good idea to apply this to hair after being in salted or chlorinated water to restore moisture and prevent dryness or breakages.
A New Look: if you’ve been considering getting a new hairstyle or a cut, then summer is the perfect time for this. Having shorter hair in summer is great because it stays away from your face and doesn’t require a whole lot of maintenance, but you can still pull off that effortless look that many people seem to be able to pull off without much effort and still look amazing
A Good Diet: although in summer our bodies don’t require as much insulation as they do in the colder months of the year, they still require lots of nourishment. Make sure you eat a balanced diet that keeps you energized and hydrated throughout the day. Some summer favourite recipes will call for things like watermelon, feta cheese and light pasta dishes that are easy to cook and don’t leave you bloated.
Just as you would throughout the rest of year, it’s important to take care of yourself in the summer. By using the tips above to stay active, healthy and nourished, you’ll find that you’ll be able to pull off quite an effortless stylish summer look, and with plenty of inspiration to be found online, you’ll never be short of ideas to experiment with for your newest look.
