Healthy beauty product heroes to beat the heat

For many of us, summer means less makeup. There’s no better feeling than looking in the mirror at your toasted forehead and rosey cheeks. You feel so free getting to pass on the powders and head out the door. A sun kissed confidence is like no other. You also may be giving your skin a well deserved break from your typical laden of products.

If saving time and skipping the bronzer sounds too good to be true, it very well may be. Going bare faced in the sun can do serious damage that will show up down the line. Enjoy your dewy skin and golden glow to the max, but still take a few extra steps to make sure you prevent damage that will surface later on. 

  1. Best form of protection while in the sun, a hat! Not only will it block the sun from your face (your most precious asset and the most vulnerable to uv-rays) your scalp too. Unless you want to line your part with a layer of sunscreen, a hat is the best way to avoid a burn. A scalp burn, that’s red, itchy flaky, sensitivity you don’t need on your crown. 
  2. Make sure you have some sort of SPF base in the morning. Touch up in the afternoon. It can be a foundation or powder with titanium dioxide. If you’re skipping the usual face makeup, opt-in for a tinted moisturizer with SPF. If you’re bare faced by the afternoon, apply again.
  3. Use light oil-free moisturizer daily and your skin will thank you. We hate winter because it dries out our skin. That's when we load up on creamy balms and rich moisturizers. But it's just as important to keep your skin balanced during the summer. If you're oily, go with a mattifiying moisturizer to  absorb shine.
  4. 4. A natural gloss will be your summer sidekick. Who doesn’t love dewy, plump lips. When they feel so smooth you can’t stop rubbing them together. The sheer tints of Beachy Kiss Natural Gloss will only enhance your natural beauty. A touch of shine in the summer sun. Seriously moisturizing and soothing with a protective barrier. Whether you’re on the beach, at the pool, or all dolled up for a backyard soiree. This healthy beauty product will keep you feeling fresh and looking effortless.
Summer's the time to feel free with your beauty routine. Multi-taskers are up to bat. It's a home run when you find a product you love that combines a moisturizer, light coverage and sun protection. Less is more, but remember less is not nothing. Protect and prevent prevails through the seasons. Pack a healthy lip gloss with you wherever you go and you'll feel effortlessly fresh.
