Summer is a beautiful season, but it can make maintaining your beautiful image really difficult. Heat and sunshine, as well as the products you need to use, can cause you some minor problems that can really get your mood down.
Not to worry, we can offer you some tips on how to look perfect and fresh even in the middle of a hot summer afternoon.
- Does the heat make you sweaty and a little stinky?
This is definitely very unpleasant, but this situation is very common. If you find yourself in it, you’ll need some antibacterial body wash or antiseptic tissues and antiperspirant. There is no avoiding the sweating, because it’s your body’s natural reaction to heat. However, your sweat starts to smell only after it interacts with bacteria on your skin. Remove the bacteria, and you won’t have this problem. An antiperspirant will help you keep the sweating at bay.
- Do your breakouts move to your back and chest?
You can invest a great deal of effort into preventing breakouts on your face, but during summer they can often move to other parts of your body. To deal with this problem, you’ll need to purchase a high-quality scrub that contains salicylic acid. Use it after showering and apply a specialized anti-acne product all over the affected skin.
- Are your palms orange because of fake tan?
Applying fake tanning products is the easiest way to give your skin a beautiful bronze glow. However, this procedure can leave a mark on you in the form of orange palms. If soap doesn’t help you deal with the problem, turn to lemons. Soak a cotton pad in freshly squeezed lemon juice and rub the marks. Then, use hand scrub to remove the dead pigmented cells.
- Does the heat make your hair limp?
You sweat a lot when it’s hot, and all that humidity you produce makes it almost impossible to keep your hair in order. Use a volumizing mousse to style your locks from the roots up. Apply it evenly and then flip your head over and blow dry your hair.
- Does your cool pale-colored nail polish yellow in the sun?
This can happen quite often when you spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer. Look for a specialized SPF topcoat in order to protect your manicure.
- Do you have red bumps on your arms?
“Red bumps” are nasty and rather unattractive. They occur when dead skin cells gather around your hair follicles. You can solve this problem by exfoliating on a regular basis. Use a high-quality moisturizer after the procedure to nourish your skin and make it soft.
- Is your hair too dry?
This happens a lot because of the heat, and your locks can get damaged easily. The situation becomes worse when you play around in the water. Try not to wet your hair when you do this, and if you must, cover it with a hat after you leave the water. You should also use an SPF hair spray, but it won’t be of much help after you get wet. Apply a nourishing hair mask once a week to keep your locks healthy and shiny.
- Do ingrowns make your life torture?
Ingrown hairs on your legs or bikini line aren’t appealing in the least, especially if they get inflamed. If they appear, you need to use a scrub to peel away the skin carefully and free the trapped hairs. Then, you can pull them out with tweezers, but be sure to apply some antiseptic to prevent infection.
