Perfect beauty routine for a perfect summer
Nothing can be achieved without some effort and relatively hard work. The same goes for beauty. If you want to shine like the sun during summer and feel confident in your own skin, it is time to take the matter in your own hands and start loving your body enough to make it ready for the hot summer days. Think of a beauty routine that would work the best for you, stick to it and welcome summer without fear and worry to show your skin.
Fitness and diet
Before you start thinking about many different creams and lotions you can buy hoping that they would make you beautiful, you have to work on your looks from the inside as well. Start eating better. Change up your diet so that you can include seasonal fruits and veggies that are full of vitamins and make the skin healthier. Also, cut the fatty and high-calorie foods. These can only make you feel bloated and tired while there is a possibility of gaining weight as well. Moreover, find the time to exercise every day. You do not have to go big from the start. Simple exercises in the beginning for 15 to 20 minutes a day will be just enough to firm your skin and make your joints more flexible.
Remove dead skin cells
Every once in a while you need to exfoliate your body and face. This will help you get rid of dead skin cells meaning that your skin will become smoother, it will absorb products from creams and lotions better and the scrubbing movements will boost the blood circulation which will result in a more radiant skin tone and minimized body cellulite. It is important not to overdo this step since it can also damage the skin and make it more sensitive and irritated. Once or twice a week is just enough.
Always wear a sunscreen
Red, patchy and sun burnt skin is not only unpleasant to the eye but it is also very unhealthy. Therefore make sure to always wear a sunscreen when you go out in the summer. Choose a perfect sunscreen for your face and skin type as well as one for the whole body. It will protect you from harmful sun rays while at the same time provide conditions for even and healthy tanning.
Stay away from alcohol
Saying that you should stay away from alcohol does not mean that you are not allowed to relax with a cool cocktail on a hot summer evening. Actually, this refers to alcohol found in different body lotions and especially perfumes and body mists. During the day, under the influence of sun, places on your skin sprayed with alcohol can become stained so make sure to avoid perfumes during the day and check the ingredient list for other products you use.
Make sure that your face is well hydrated. Applying a moisturizer before makeup is advisable if you want to avoid patchiness and dry skin. For example, vitamin C serum is a great choice for many skin types since it is absorbed quickly, does not leave a greasy residue on the surface and also protects the skin from pigmentation spots. Moreover, opt for waterproof makeup and do not go overboard with application. A BB cream, concealer, setting powder and waterproof mascara is basically all you need but you can also spice things up with some color according to your own tastes.
With summer just around the corner there is no time to lose. Start taking care of yourself properly and once you feel the joy of being satisfied with your fresh and fit summer look you will probably adopt this kind of healthy lifestyle throughout the year. Why look great only for a season when you can be fabulous all the time?
