4 Summer Beauty Hacks

Let's talk summer beauty! When this time of year rolls around, higher temperatures call for an updated beauty routine to deal with the elements. When it comes to makeup and skin care, I always opt for lighter makeup application, staying hydrated, and fast hair removal. I'll be sharing four of my summer beauty hacks and trusted rituals to help me stay cool through the warm and sunny days of summer. 

favorite summer beauty products: Veet hair remover cream gel, Avene thermal water, Yes to Grapefruit CC cream

First up is my favorite way to cool off after a workout or during an especially hot day. I simply stash a bottle of thermal water spray in the refrigerator and spritz my face to cool off. It's refreshing, good for your skin, and most of all, it feels amazing! Quick tip: it also helps to set makeup and soothe irritated skin.

While thermal water spray keeps my skin hydrated, drinking plenty of water is also key to avoiding dehydration and having beautiful, glowing skin. I like to slice cucumber, lemon, or strawberries and toss it into my cold water to sip throughout the day. The subtle infusion of fruit flavor encourages me to drink more water, and it is really refreshing when temperatures rise. Bonus points for sipping it from a fun floral Thermos.

The minimal route is the way to go when it's so hot that products can melt off of your skin. Less is more is my motto for summer makeup! A product that does double or even triple duty always gets my vote. I adore my CC cream because it's 95% natural, has SPF, moisturizes, brightens skin, and provides a sheer layer of skin-perfecting color. It gives my skin a natural glow and is great for days when I'm pressed for time and don't want to wear concealer or foundation. 

Hair Removal
With warmer weather comes the opportunity to show more skin by wearing cute rompers, skirts, dresses, and shorts. While this is something I look forward to, hair removal, on the other hand, is something I don't look forward to, since it can be time-consuming and painful. For me, having smooth and soft skin is key to feeling confident in summer's skin-baring styles. I recently tried Veet® Fast Acting cream gel hair remover and found it to be both fast and easy. Just apply it, wait five minutes, use the spatula to remove it, and rinse. It's that simple. No harsh smell, no pain, and smooth skin for days! While waxing and shaving can cause irritation, this cream gel is easier on my skin. I won't miss my razor at all.
