You asked me to talk about my summer skincare & make up routine in summertime, particularly for the beach...
I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to write about it sooner, but I did manage to film a video about it, while I was on my summer vacations!
I filmed directly from the beach and showed you all the products I use in my skincare (how I prepare my skin for the sun exposure), and I answered your question about wearing make up on the beach!
These are all the products I need to have on me in the hot summertime:
|As you can see, there are just a very few products that I use when I'm on the beach, but these are truly my essentials and are all that I need!|
You can check out my video where I talk to you about my summer skincare & make up for the beach, here:
My thoughts about wearing make up to the beach:
I think there's no point in doing that, really!
The most important thing is to protect your skin from the damaging UV rays with good skincare products.
Protect your natural beauty & let it shine :) In summertime, at the beach, you're going to be hot, you're going to sweat, go for a swim, be active (hopefully!)...your make up won't last...it'll be cakey on your face, it'll melt off, and you're going to look ridiculous!
If you feel that you need to wear at least something, go for a lipgloss with spf, and you can also use one of those mineral compact foundation with very high spf (I use Bioderma), that are designed specifically to be used at the beach/for sunbathing, and have a very light, mineral based formula that won't clog your pores and will just blend in with your skintone.
|At risk of sounding cheesy... but, with no make up, letting your natural beauty shine, you're going to be the most beautiful girl at the beach :)|
Make up can be our best friend sometimes, but the beach is just not the place for it!
A few pics of me at the beach, wearing no make up...
I often say that a nice summer hat & a good pair of sunglasses, are my make up for the beach!
For summer skincare/ make up, these are the products I recommend:
- Bioderma Photoderm spf 30 Matifying Sun Fluid (if you have oily/combination skin); look for the one specific to your skin type!
- Vichy capital soleil spf50+ uvb+uva
- Bioderma photoderm max spf 50+ mineral compact very high protection sensitive skin
- Shiseido anti-aging foundation sun protection compact foundation spf 30 water-resistant (my shade is sp60)
- Sun Dance lippen balsam spf30 uva+uvb protection (exclusive to DM drugstores)
- Bronzingold lip gloss with spf (exclusive to deliplus)
- Nice summer hat
- A good pair of shades ;)
We're just a couple of days before the official ending of summer, but I hope this quick post will still be useful to you, for whenever you're sunbathing, or spending time at the beach!
