The long awaited, three day weekend is almost here! It’s time to switch up your beauty routine to prepare for those hot Summer days and warm summer nights! As the seasons change, so should your beauty products and beauty routine. It’s time to think about smooth legs for those short shorts, moisturized elbows and knees for those sleeveless tops and summer dresses and the list goes on.
Check out this Summer beauty checklist so you are fully prepared for what the new season brings:
Hair Removal- Summer time means swimsuits, swimming pools and beaches, so prep that Summer bod by taking some time to remove that unwanted hair. Whether it is on your legs, underarms or lady parts make sure you select the right kind of products to keep yourself properly groomed for the summer. Shave or wax the legs and underarms and for those sensitive bikini areas try BareEase & Cream for an ouchless experience. They even make Numb Nuts for any Manscaping that needs to take place…and yes, I’m serious
Tanning- I hate the feeling of getting in a bathing suit for the very first time in the start of Summer. Mostly because I feel like my pale skin would blind everyone around me if they were not wearing their shades. To make this process a little more welcoming, I like the idea of getting a spray tan prior to stripping down to that little bikini. Don’t want to go get a spray tan? Give yourself a little color, safely at home with some self-tanner. Colour Couture has some great tanning products and lucky for you they are giving some away!
Mani/Pedi- Bright colors are in this Summer and here are some favorites to try: SpaRitual’s Pigment Lacquer Mini Kit this offers a variety of fun and bright colors in a multi-colored bag, perfect for taking to the beach! Lara’s Theme by Deborah Lippman makes your nails a bright summer-time accessory and Essie Lights is the perfect shade of pink.
Aside from that, don’t forget the basics like wear your sunscreen at all times, moisturize and lighten up on the makeup. If you have to wear makeup, try a tinted moisturizer rather than a heavy foundation. Also, don’t skimp out on the elbows and knees, make sure they get enough moisturizer so you won’t have those ‘rough’ patches. Stay smooth and colorful! Enjoy the weekend and don’t forget to take some time to reflect and honor those brave men and women who served to protect us.
