One of the best parts of summertime is being able to have fun at the beach, whether you’re at home or on vacation. Feeling the warm sun embrace your body, listening to the waves and feeling sand between your toes is essential to a relaxing summer. However, your beauty regimen needs to adjust to the beach; not only do you want to feel pretty, but it is vital to protect your face, body and hair from the effects of the sun and ocean. Here are some tips to feel like a beach babe:
Let’s face it- at the beach you will most likely be wearing a bathing suit; which means you need to get your body ready to be seen! The night before going to the beach, exfoliate your skin with a body brush (one to try is JAFRA’s Face and Body Cleansing System
, which comes with a specific body brush), to remove dull and dry skin. Follow with a body oil and moisturizer to make your skin smooth and soft. Thirty minutes before hitting the beach, apply a full spectrum sunscreen (such as JAFRA’s Body Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50
) all over your body. Each hour while you are at the beach, remember to reapply sun protection, especially if you swim in the ocean. Après-beach refresh your skin with a lotion such as JAFRA’s Cooling After-Sun Lotion, which contains aloe and shea butter, ingredients proven to soothe the skin.
Relaxing at the beach means being easy breezy, especially when it comes to your hair. The sun and ocean can not only make your tresses dry and brittle, but these elements can also fade your color if you get highlights or color your hair. If your hair is long, consider braiding it for a trendy and super functional look! You can also wet your hair and slick it back with a hair oil for a moisture treatment while you play. Of course, a wide-brimmed hat is another option to look chic while also being protected.
Glowing, Healthy Makeup
Get your face beach ready by applying an antioxidant serum under your sunscreen; the antioxidants will give your skin a defense boost against the effects of the sun. Next, a high SPF sunscreen is a must; one to try is JAFRA’s Face Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50
. Even out your complexion with a CC, or Complexion Corrector Cream that will give you lightweight coverage and will be easy to reapply. Waterproof mascara will open up your eyes without the risk of smearing off and a slick of a moisturizing lip gloss, such as JAFRA’s High Shine Moisture Gloss
, will give your lips a sun-kissed glimmer.
