At Glamifornia, we strive to help people feel beautiful and to inspire them to live their most glamorous life. With summer in full swing, we have compiled a list of essential beauty tips that will help you to feel your best on all of those hot, sunny summer days:
1. Say Yes to SPF
We know everyone wants that iconic summer glow, and that the idea of wearing sunscreen can seem like a total drag, but protecting your skin with SPF is an absolute MUST. Raw sun exposure can negatively impact your health and can age your skin at a more rapid rate than it would without it. Wearing sunscreen helps to keep your skin safe from harsh UV rays and can prevent painful sunburns, so don’t forget to grab a bottle next time you hit the beach.
2. Hydrate with H20
Water is truly the source of life and is extremely necessary for staying hydrated and keeping your skin smooth this summer. Water can help you to feel refreshed and energized, and can also help to curb those sugary cravings. It also helps to flush toxins from your body and filter out unhealthy elements that may be affecting you. Basically, water is EVERYTHING and is one of the easiest ways to stay glamorous this summer.
3. Keep your Makeup from Messing Up
Waterproof makeup can be a lifesaver during the summer, especially if you’re in and out of the water or spending long days outside in the sun. You should be able to enjoy your day instead of constantly worrying about your eyeliner or stressing out about mascara running down your face. Just opt for a makeup product marked “waterproof,” and save yourself from all of that worry. There are plenty of popular brands that offer waterproof makeup products and this simple beauty tip is only a store away!
4. Rock the Natural Look
Don’t feel like wearing any makeup at all? THEN DON’T! Summer is all about being carefree, and the natural look is totally in right now. Skip the makeup if you want and bask in all the glory that is you. Going without makeup can give your skin room to breathe and can help you to build confidence in the more-natural version of you. No matter what you choose to do, always feel good being you!
5. Beachy Waves for the Win
Beachy waves are this summer’s hottest look, and best of all, they’re super easy to create! These tousled waves are super fun and casual, and are great for any daytime event or for a night out on the town. Salt water is the key to creating this effortless style and works best on wet hair. Simply go to your local beauty store and ask to see their salt-water-based products (most will be some sort of sea-spray found in a spray bottle). A special tip for beach locals: grab your own empty spray bottle and take some salt water straight from the ocean! It works like a charm!
