• Tips + Tricks: Warm Weather Beauty

    Okay, so right now most of the country is juuust starting to get cold. But for those of us in warm weather states or making plans to book it out of our rapidly chilling hometowns, we decided to round up some of our favorite tips and tricks for keeping skin and makeup looking flawless in warmer weather.

    First of all, and this should go for any time of the year, even if you live in Alaska and it's dark 75% of the day, make sure to put on sunscreen before leaving the house! Beauty magazines have been nailing this into our heads since the dawn of time, but we're going to reiterate it, because there's nothing more important than healthy, SPF-protected skin. Since youth is fleeting, SPF is important in the long run, because it'll keep skin looking fresh well into the twilight of your years. It's very important. This sunscreen from Mizon comes in a spray so it's super easy to use - no excuses!

    Now that you have your SPF covered, you can move onto the rest of your face. Obviously if you're on vacation, you want to be as low-maintenance as possible while still looking flawless for Instagram pics. This is where a light powder foundation comes in handy, especially if you're in a more humid environment. Liquid foundation is fine in small quantities (as well as tinted moisturizer), but it's easy to go from "glowy" to "sweaty" when rocking liquid foundation in warmer temperatures. We recommend using a primer and pressed powder instead to keep the face-makeup-meltiness at bay. When you're all ready to wash up at the end of the day, this balm from Camp Desert removes makeup while moisturizing and helping soothe any sunburn you may have gotten.

    If you're heading somewhere with a beach (or live on the beach, you lucky duck), put a little coconut oil into a travel container and take it with you, because you'll be able to use it for so many things. Putting a bit of coconut oil in your hair before and during your trip to the beach will help keep hair hydrated and silky instead of frizzed out and dry. Also, we've tried mixing up some coconut oil and water in a spritz bottle, and it makes for a great hair refresher while lying on the beach. (Obviously you'll need to keep the bottle warm-ish to keep the coconut oil in a liquid state.) Plus, if your skin is feeling a little dry, you can use the coconut oil to rehydrate skin as well. To fully round out your coconut hair experience, this conditioner from Renpure will hydrate hair once you hop in the shower at the end of the day.
