1. Water, Water, Water
Whether you’re drinking it or swimming in it, this summer make water your top priority. Staying hydrated will keep your skin in an optimal state of balance and keep your body fueled up for all your summer activities. Bonus–studies have shown that being near the water can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety!
2. Lip Care
Don’t neglect your lips this summer. From the ultra moisturizing AVEDA lip saver to the many pops of color from the AVEDA Feed My Lips collection, smooth, hydrated, colorful lips will be your perfect summer accessory!
If you like to embrace the sun aloe is your new best friend. Everyone knows aloe works wonders for sensitivity and redness caused by the sun due to its cooling gel-like consistency. What you may not have known is how diverse aloe is. Because of its tacky properties, aloe can make a wonderful makeup primer, or can be applied on the face just to add an after sun glow. Put it on after Cleansing for an extra dose of hydration!
4. Go light on the foundation
Tired of that hot heavy make up? Here’s a better way of using it . When applying makeup during the summer-time you may not need as much foundation. The reason being is that as temperatures rise your sweat glands go into overdrive and there goes your makeup! You will only need about a quarter size of foundation depending on your skin, blend well with a damp beauty sponge for a fresh, lightweight, dewy summer look.
5. Moisturizing is still important
You may think that just because it’s summer you can skip moisturizing. Instead of going without, keep your skin balanced with a lightweight moisturizer. Aveda’s Hydrating lotion contains aloe and a little jojoba oil that will give your skin a beautiful radiance without feeling too rich! Bonus-it looks great under makeup!
No summer essentials list would be complete without SPF. Don’t like the feeling or look of a rich, high shine SPF on your face? Try Aveda’s Daily Light Guard with SPF 30. Perfectly formulated for the skin of the face, neck, and décolleté, this will keep your skin protected and your shine in check
7. Cleansing AM/PM
Excess sweat and oil production may allow environmental pollutants to stick to the surface of the skin and clog your pores. When cleansing in the PM try Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Exfoliating Creme Cleanser to rid the surface of any makeup and irritants and in the AM try something hydrating and oil based like Aveda’s Purifying Creme Cleanser to keep the skin lightly hydrated and balanced all day long.
We all love the sun, but we don’t love those feelings of congestion that can become oh so common this time of year. Using a gentle exfoliator, like Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant, is safe for everyday use and will not cause your skin any irritation. The wintergreen-derived salicylic acid will keep your skin smooth, soft, and supple all summer long. Bye bye congestion!
Are you prone to oiliness throughout the day when the temperatures rise? Have no fear, translucent powder is here! Aveda’s Inner Light Mineral Loose powder will mattify and absorb excess oil while also setting your makeup and giving your skin a big dose of radiance! Perfect for all skin tones, keep this in your purse to touch up on the go. People will be asking what your secret to perfect makeup is all summer long!
Skin care can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Masques are concentrated, target treatments that will leave your skin feeling like you just left the spa. This summer keep your skin toned and hydrated by doing a masque twice a week. Whether it be Aveda’s Deep Cleansing Clay masque with kaolin and bentonite clays to draw excess impurities or Aveda’s Intense Hydrating Masque with soothing rosewater and Betaine to cool and refresh, you can’t go wrong giving your skin (and you!) some TLC.
