As July winds down, many people may flock to the shores to capture the last month of guaranteed beach weather. But a romp in the sand and waves can leave you with messy hair and a face full of melted makeup.
Instead of forgoing cosmetics all-together, making your face feel more naked than your bared midsection, apply a few products to keep your appearance flawless while having fun in the sun.
It’s no secret that women should smother themselves in sunscreen before hitting the beach, but even sun-protected skin may need a bit of extra help. While soaking up the rays can be relaxing, it can also cause an unfortunately shiny complexion.
A high-quality powder with a built-in SPF is ideal for ocean or poolside touch-ups. Allure magazine recommends Colorescience Pro Sunforgettable Mineral Powder Sun Protection SPF 50, a lightweight formula that will hide skin imperfections while protecting your face from UVA and UVB rays.
To keep hair from hanging limply or curling uncontrollably after a dip in the saltwater, the publication suggests packing a texturizing spray, and spritzing strands while scrunching locks for a sexy, carefree look. Also, remember to carry hair elastics – a purposefully messy bun can tame hair and look cute!
