Summer is finally here, the sun is shining, and you are raring to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. You need to look and feel good as you set foot outside, and here are some great ways to achieve it.
The summer is a great time to replace your old clothes with some fantastic new looks. Whether you buy a collection, such as Alfred Dunner from Anthony’s or mix and match your own style, wear clothing that looks and feels good on you.
Buy clothes in a range of styles and colors to match your activities during the day. A new swimsuit is essential while spending time in the pool, and t-shirts and shorts will give your body the freedom it needs during the stifling heat. At the moment, the 1980’s styles are back in fashion with bright, bold colors and jumbo frills. Fuschia colored pinks were popular on this year’s catwalks, and pinstripes were the design style of choice.
You may want to accessorize with a cool new hat, and a trendy bag to complement your summer outfit. At the moment Audrey Hepburn style sunglasses are in fashion, giving you that cool, chic look as you walk around town.
You may be wearing the latest fashion in color and design, but if you don’t look after your skin, you may end up walking around town with your face looking like a tomato and blistering like bubble wrap! Not good when you are trying to look beautiful, so you need to take care of yourself.
As awesome as the sun is, you need to stay in the shade when possible to protect yourself from the intense heat. Always wear sunscreen on any exposed areas of your skin, and when lounging in your garden buy a large umbrella to shield you from the sun.
Moisturize your face to keep it soft and supple. There are ways to do this naturally using coconut water or milk, giving you a fresh, healthy glow. Exfoliate daily as well, removing the impurities that have gathered under your skin.
Our bodies lose a lot of water every day, especially in the warmer months, so it is important to rehydrate ourselves by drinking plenty of water. Not only will this hydrate our skin but it will remove harmful toxins as well.
You may prefer the natural look but if you do wear make-up to look beautiful find the right shades to suit your eye coloring and the tone of your skin. You will be sweating a lot, and possibly spending time in the pool, so apply waterproof mascara, to avoid those ugly black streaks running down your face. Curling your lashes will make your eye color pop, and applying bronzer to your forehead and cheeks will give your skin a beautiful glow. However, make sure you wash it off before you go to bed as it will irritate your skin, and make it look blotchy, not helpful to the fabulous new look you are keen to show off.
