Beauty Picks for Summer!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Hello one and all! If you can't already tell by the Heat Humidity Summer is Here in all its blazing glory! Summer is a wonderful time to update your wardrobe and add a few key pieces. One important thing that most of us seem to forget is our Skin. The same amount of care needs to be given to your skin in Summer because its gets really hot and our skin needs that extra T.L.C.


Foundation: Finding the right foundation in Summer can be tricky ( esp if you live on an Island where it gets crazy hot) To avoid make-up meltdown , it's important to pick a foundation that offers full coverage that is light at the same time. I've seen a lot of magazines and beauty gurus talk about mineral foundations or even BB's creams that offer full coverage. Bare minerals has a new line of foundation that has a range of colors for a plethora of skin tones, so this would be the perfect time to step out on a limb and try something new.

Moisturizer:  As mentioned earlier, your skin gets dry during Summer because its hot and all the moisturizer is sucked from your skin! Sounds gruesome right? Well .... you need to put that moisture back in your skin and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. There are some primers that function as a moisturizer and there are some moisturizers that have SPF! Pick a moisturizer that is within your price range and for your skin type.

Deodorant: We talk about all the wonderful make-up and all that good stuff and there are people who tend to forget about hygiene. This is a touchy topic but with heat comes sweat and with sweat comes B.O ( Body Odor ) We all smell different for various reasons , but it is important to get your pits in check! Deodorant Brands like secret and degree has extended their lines to "clinical" conditions sooo you might want to check those out. A great one to try is Secret Clinical Strength, this comes in Solid as well as a clear gel.

Sunscreen: I remember in my early teens I was that girl who went no where without my Banana Boat Sunscreen! I was just weird but I had my reasons ... freckles multiply in the sun so I wanted to make sure they were in check. Whether or not you have Freckles your skin needs protection from those harmful sun rays. While researching I found a Sunscreen stick! The packaging is a lot similar to deodorant so you don't have to worry about it being too messy. Check out the Neutrogena Beach defense


Hands, Elbows & Heels:  These are the body parts that can show you up ( in public ) if you are not taking care of them properly. These are the parts that are most exposed and most used, think about it. Try the following:
Heels: Gold Bond Foot Cream
Elbows: Viva Labs Extra Virgin Coconut Oil ( This product has multiple oils )
Hands: O'Keef's Working Hands Cream

This was a looooong post but I hope you can take one thing away from it
