4 Ways to Gear Up for Summer
Yikes, where is this year going? As the mercury steadily rises, get set to make this summer your most beautiful and comfortable ever with our 4 trending tips for caring for your skin and body.
1. Establish healthy sunscreen habits now: If you’re not already a regular sunscreen user, now is a great time to get started. By making a note to apply sunscreen every day before you leave the house, you can establish a solid habit to protect yourself as the season brings increased outdoor time. Don’t rely on makeup with an SPF to do the job, either. Instead, generously apply a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 over your face, neck, chest, and any other exposed parts of your body before you put on makeup. There are a lot of affordable, effective sunscreens that also serve as moisturizers and that are perfect for applying right out of the shower. If you plan to be active or outdoors for a big part of the day, remember to reapply at least once every couple of hours (and don’t stop when the weather gets cooler — remember that the sun’s rays can affect you even when it’s chilly or cloudy).
3. Perfect your hair removal game: Warm-weather garments mean more exposed skin, and more exposed skin means more hair to remove. But it’s not just the hair that gives people grief — irritation, ingrown hairs, cuts, and even the tedium of daily shaving all occasionally make jeans seem mighty appealing, even in the dog days. To ensure the most effortless shave possible, many experts are jumping on the shaving oil bandwagon, claiming that these products encourage an effortless razor glide, an incredibly close shave, greater visibility, and little risk of razor burn and irritation. While many personal care companies sell their own proprietary elixirs, you can try using straight olive or coconut oil next time you’re in the shower. (Just be sure you have some non-slip decals!).
If you’re looking for a solution that’s a bit more long-lasting, waxing is a popular option for both large swaths of hair and smaller, delicate areas. And while laser hair removal may seem pricey up front, it actually saves money in the long run because its results are generally permanent. Can you imagine never buying razors again?
