7 Ways To Simplify Your Beauty Routine This Summer

By Kaitlyn Fleur

The temperature is climbing to near triple digits and as oppressive as the heat may be, there is an upside. Thankfully, you can dramatically simplify your beauty routine giving you more time to focus on the more important areas of your life.  In only a few minutes, you can be the hot woman you know you are rather than just a hot, sticky mess.

1. For the body:  After a shower is the best time to massage a moisturizing lotion all over your body for smooth healthy-looking skin.  If you are used to hot showers, you may want to cool the water at the end of your shower so that you are not too heated when you put on the lotion.  Don’t forget to rub the lotion on your cuticles, elbows, knees and the heels of your feet.  We recommend Jergen’s Ultra Healing Lotion for soft, luxurious skin.  If you will be outdoors, do not forget to apply sunscreen as well to protect your skin from harsh UV rays.

2. For the face:  Use a gentle exfoliating cleanser at least every other day to bring out your radiant, glowing skin.  For best results, make sure the exfoliating beads are small, spherical beads which are non-abrasive and gentler to the skin.  We recommend Tata Hara’s Regenerating Cleanser.  Follow with eye cream and an SPF daily moisturizer or nighttime moisturizer.

3. For the face:  Forget the foundation and powder this summer and use CC (Color Correcting) cream, which is not only more lightweight than foundation, but offers more benefits for your skin.  It hydrates, preps, and corrects the skin as well as offer hydration, SPF and anti-aging benefits.  In just a few seconds, you could dab a pea-sized amount throughout the face and blend.  Use your ring finger to blend a little more CC cream under your eye, the sides of your nose and mouth, and any other areas that need a little more coverage.  We recommend Smashbox CC Cream.

4. For the eyes:  If you will be mainly outdoors, skip the eye makeup altogether and sport a pair of stylish sunglasses.  If you want to look glammed up, instead of powdered eye shadows, glide on Sephora’s Jumbo Liner across the base of each eyelid.  Not only are they simple to apply, but they are waterproof and come in a variety of cool colors from Peacock to Gray Glitter.  Finish your eyes by curling the lashes.  If you do not feel complete without mascara, go ahead and swipe on one coat of waterproof mascara to your upper lashes.  If you are concerned about melting makeup, lightly spritz Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray and leave your worries aside.

5. For the lips:  Skip the lip liner and lipstick.  To save time and to make your lips happy, use Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense, a very moisturizing, highly pigmented lip balm that comes in a variety of flattering shades.  Sapphire of pop rock group Millennium usually keeps two shades in her purse: Roomiest Rose for a daytime look and Maraschino Cherry for night.

6. For the cheeks:  Nix the powdered blush and reach for a cheek stain such as Benetint by Benefit.  Dab a couple drops to the apples of each cheek, blend immediately and voila, you have the perfect flush.

7. For the hair:  Put away the hair dryer and curling iron.  Summer is the perfect time to give your hair a break from the heat.  Simply wash your hair the night before.  When it is ninety percent dry, rub a quarter-sized amount of soft styling gel such as Wen Sweet Almond Mint Styling Gel and create one big bun at the top of your head (or two Princess Leia buns for more curl).  In the morning, unravel the buns for soft, touchable curls.  If it is too hot to put your hair down, go for a bun or a ponytail accented with pretty accessories such as hairclips or headbands to step up the look.  If you will be mainly outdoors, try on a cute floppy hat or fedora.

You are now ready to be your cool, calm, confident self, even through the hottest days of summer!
