Most of us spend a considerable amount of time getting ready every day, ensuring that make up is applied perfectly, hair is pin straight, and an outfit accessorized to the max. But when summer rolls around, it’s time to take a break - trust us, your hair, skin, and busy calendar will thank you later! Here are three beauty steps you can feel free to skip over in a heat wave
1. Doing your hair. Your hair takes a beating all year long, with curling irons, flat irons, blow dryers, and excessive products - so give it a break! Natural-looking hair is perfectly acceptable when it’s super hot out because, let’s face it - no matter what you do, the humidity is going to win anyways. Spritz in some wave-making spray if you must! Otherwise go with a loose braid or a messy bun.
2. Wearing foundation. You’re already sweating, do you really need gunky foundation dripping down your face? Feel free to nix the full face of make up from your morning routine - all we’ve got is mascara, some lip gloss, and maybe a fun eye shadow color for nights out.
3. Slathering on heavy moisturizer. Using the same moisturizer you use in cold, dry months can actually lead to skin break outs and irritation. Instead, use a lightweight moisturizing sunblock that doubles as a skin protector and thirst-quencher. Who doesn’t love multitasking?
