Solutions for Your Summer Beauty Problem!
We always consider certain beauty woes the price we pay to enjoy warm, sunny weather all summer. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it. Here are solutions of seven most common beauty problems women experience in the summer.
Keep your nails dark. Pale pink may be pretty, but light polishes can quickly turn yellow in the sun. Instead, try one of the hottest nail shades for the season: eggplant. I like O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Siberian Nights which is so pretty.
Fake some sun. And we're not talking about bronzer. This summer, blend a cream brick red blush into your cheeks, temples, and bridge of your nose (it'll give you a sheer wash, we swear) to make it look like you spent your day outside instead of in the office.
Fight the frizz. Instead of putting all your hope in products, pick a hairstyle that will help disguise the uncontrollable fuzz that comes with humidity. Slick hair back into a bun and slide on your favorite headband or braid it all to the side (the perfect base for throwing on a hat.)
Stop sunscreen breakouts. Swap your standard cream formula for one with a gel base, like PreSun Sunscreen Ultra SPF 30 Gel, or a powder, like Colorescience Sunforgettable Sunscreen.
Keep your makeup from melting. Instead of a power, which can cake when it mixes with sweat and oil, stick with a cream like Laura Mercier Satinée Crème Eye Color, which has silicone to lock it in place.
Avoid turning green. Your hair, that is. Before hitting the pool, coat your hair with Klorane Conditioner with Papyrus Milk.
Prevent bug bites. Taking 100 milligrams of thiamin (aka vitamin B) will make you smell bad to mosqitoes. Mist yourself with DEET-free bug spray, such as Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard.
