When it comes to incredible skin care, everyone wants to make sure that they have
gorgeous, glowing skin. With summer just around the corner, many ladies want to ramp up their beauty regimen. After all, summer skin can be prone to all kinds of problems. Looking after your skin, especially in the heat of summer, is important.
Let’s face it; no one wants to look older. But, if you don’t protect your skin in the summertime that is exactly what is going to happen. Couple the problems of aging with skin cancer, and you could find yourself on the road to a whole host of problems.
Protecting your skin against the summer sun doesn’t have to be a complicated process. You don’t have to hide away all summer long. On the contrary, there are some oh-so-simple beauty hacks that you can use this summer to ensure that your skin stays radiant.
Sun Block is Your Best Friend
Sun block is your best friend this summer. But, if you want to make sure that your skin is glowing, and you are the epitome of good health, opt for a factor 50. Ditch the carrot oil, as this only serves to clog up your pores and leave you susceptible to spots and acne. Always go for a lotion that has an SPF of fifty within it. You don’t have to splurge on expensive brands. Cheaper brands do the trick just as well. You need to apply the lotion every two hours. Make sure that you get your nose and forehead. After all, these are the most susceptible places for sunburn.
Go Hair Free
If there is one thing we all are extra self conscious about in the summer months, it’s body hair. I am so excited to share that I found a fix for that unwanted hair. I recently tried out my local European Wax Center® and I am excited to share that my experience was great.
The company was founded a decade ago on the belief that all of us deserve beautiful, gorgeous skin by not concealing who we are, but by having the courage and confidence to reveal our natural, beautiful skin. Yep, love that.
I’m sure you’ve tried waxing before, but to me this whole concept was different and my opinion better than my other waxing experiences. European Wax Center® isn’t just about waxing, its really about reveling your beautiful skin. Their 4-step process really impressed me.
1) CLEANSE: Their pre-wax cleanser removes makeup, oil or lotion from your skin.
2) PROTECT: Then, they apply pre-wax oil to ensure the wax adheres to pesky hairs and not your skin.
3) GET YOUR WAX ON: Using their exclusive stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, they gently remove the hair for a virtually painless experience. (Don’t get me wrong I could definitely feel the hair being removed, but it was not too bad.)
4) REJUVENATE: Last, they pamper your skin with either their Ingrown Hair Serum (for body) or Calming Cream (for face).
It was my first time visiting, so I was pretty excited when I found out that all first-time guests receive a complimentary wax.
For all the ladies, as a first-time guest, you can indulge in a complimentary brow, underarm or bikini line wax.
For my man friends out there, as a first-time guest, you can spruce yourself up with a complimentary ear, nose or brow wax.
My experience with European Wax Center® was fabulous. I did a lip and brow wax. I am going to head back in 3 weeks to get a bikini wax. I wanted to get one now, but they said you need to grow your hair out for at least 3 weeks so if you’re thinking about getting waxed for an upcoming event make sure your hair is about as long as grain of rice.
Update, I did the bikini wax and it wasn’t bad. My skin felt silky smooth and I had no pain at all when it was over.
Homemade Remedies for Your Summer Beauty Cabinet
Everyone has a bulging beauty cabinet full of lotions and potions. But, it doesn’t need to be this way. For tired, sun-kissed eyes, put cold tea bags on the delicate skin of your under eyes. If you want to make sure that you are beating dry skin, post-sun bathing a Lifecell all-in-one anti aging treatment is the only hack that you need. If you want to turn this into a scrub, add refined brown sugar and rinse in the shower. It’s a simple way to keep your skin hydrated, wrinkle free and protected. For your hair, a simple egg mask, coupled with olive oil and avocado juice can make your hair shine and banish split ends. It’s natural, affordable and you will look fabulous.
Spritzing your face with fresh water and mist is one of the simplest yet cleverest ways to ensure that your skin is hydrated. All you need is a small bottle of water, or you can buy mist in a can. Summer skin is prone to drying out, from the excessive heat. But, misting your skin is a simple way to ensure that your skin is breathable and not at risk of drying out. By doing this, you are guaranteeing that anti-aging is not occurring. So, your skin will look soft and gorgeous all summer long. What’s more, you won’t have a wrinkle in sight.
Now that you know a few of my summer skin care rules, this summer I want you to join me and European Wax Center® as we challenge you to reveal your head-to-toe gorgeous skin and give the sun a little something to worship (for a change).
