A day at the beach can be as relaxing or as exciting as you want it to be. No matter what kind of day you have planned, you’re probably not going to leave looking as refreshed as you did when you first arrived.
The fact is, exposure to the sand, ocean and sun can leave fry your skin and dry out your hair. The sand and salty water can also affect your skin. Even though the elements can take a toll on your beauty regimen, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your summer fun to look good. Just follow these simple beach makeup tips to stay looking fresh all summer long.
Most of us have to put on foundation, moisturizer and sunscreen before going out. Who has time to apply all these layers, especially when you’re headed to the beach for the day? Save time and add all-in-one BB cream to your bag of beach makeup essentials. You’ll even out your skin tone and protect it from the effects of the sun — you can also choose from waterproof brands to get the same benefits in the water.
How much do you spend to put highlights in your hair? Did you know you can get the same look with a little lemon juice? Just mix a few drops with water, spray it on strands of your wet hair, and watch as your hair gets natural, lighter streaks. You’ll look sun-kissed without harsh chemicals ruining your hair.
Some women get naturally curly hair after a day in the ocean, while others might experience frizz. If you can’t seem to tame your frizz from the humidity, you don’t have to suffer a bad hair day. Pack a scarf in your bag and walk off the beach in style. Twist it around and tie it behind your head to create a homemade headband, or wrap it around your head for a sophisticated look.
Lips burn faster than skin, so your lip balm should have SPF in it. That doesn’t mean you can’t add a little color to your lips, though. Pick up a tinted lip balm with SPF that adds color while giving your lips extra protection.
Liquid foundation is great for covering up after a day at the beach, but it can feel greasy and may even make the shine on your face more noticeable. Keep a loose powder with SPF and a makeup brush in your bag to touch up and get rid of that after-sun shine.
