For this summer, we summed up our favorite beauty essentials and accessories for you to look your utmost best throughout this sizzling season.
Any dermatologist will tell you that the most important step in taking care of your skin, is using sunscreen every day and re-applying throughout the day. During the summer, UVA/ UVB rays are the strongest and it is crucial for you to add this step to your daily routine. The amazing sunscreens by COOLA are highly recommended products and do well with any skin type! Best part is, they have the best scents and are water-resistant!
During summer, your skin tends to sweat a lot, and if we have it covered by heavy foundation all the time, this may lead to breakouts. The mixture of sweat and foundation can clog your pores, causing breakouts, pimples or bumpy and oily skin. Therefore, it is suggested to avoid heavy or full coverage foundations, unless you absolutely have to. Instead, go for a lightweight, color correcting cream or tinted moisturizer. Both Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+, are top rated. It Cosmetics CC Cream will provide more coverage if you need it and has a high SPF that will protect your skin without the heavy feeling.
- Moisturizing lip balm
