Brace yourselves ladies. More sunny days ahead! That means less of those sweaters and winter boots. Are you ready for days on the beach, summer parties and sun-kissed skin? Beyond sunglasses and SPFs, here are some quick tips to prepare for hotter days under the sun.
Prep up your home
Let’s start with your safe haven. The sweltering heat is lurking around the corner and may arrive anytime soon. There is no better place to start making the changes than your sanctuary. Is your home ready for parties, BBQs, long nights and unexpected summer guests?
Time to spruce up some changes around the house. Prep up your home so you can have more time enjoying those leisure days ahead.
Give your air conditioner a good cleanup. Defrost your freezer and chuckout anything that's no use. Since summer calls for parties, time to update your recipes, blenders, dishware and the kitchen.
Bugs love hot days as much as we do. Set up a good barrier around your home to keep them away. Of course, don’t forget the basics: clean up the walkway, prep the windows and tidy up the flower beds. Yes, time to liven up those begonias, sweet peas and busy lizzies.
Prep up your wardrobe
Spice up your wardrobe with new colors and pieces to match the humid weather. Tank tops? They just go perfectly with almost anything. And plain white shirt could never go wrong.
Match up the sunny days with brighter accessories and bolder swimwears. As for your scents, pair the sun, sea and sand with something light. More sandals and slippers, fewer boots. But since the sun is up, might as well enjoy the great outdoors with a fresh pair of hiking shoes.
Prep up your skin
The weather changes. About time to swap out your skincare routines. But first off, give your skin some real good exfoliation. Your skin could be a bit dry from all those times hiding from the cold winters under those jackets and sweaters. Use a grainy scrub to exfoliate and unveil your natural glow.
Eat healthier foods and more juicy fruits. Stay hydrated. Lather up some gentle and light moisturizers. Plump up your summer glow by adding some streaky tan and other favorite summer skin bummers.
Prep up your makeup kit
More sweaty days ahead. Yikes. So your makeup routine has to be change to a minimum. Shake up your palettes for the summertime. Update your kit with goodies for lighter dewy skin, bronzed glow and maybe some bright colored lippies?
For a more sun-kissed radiance, just add your favorite bronzers to your beauty arsenal. Some suggestions for you, lovely;
- Lanai in the Sand Bronzer - if you have a fair to medium complexion
- Poi-Pular Shores Bronzer - if you have a medium to fair skin tone
- Gimme A Kissimmee Bronzer - if you have a medium to dark complexion
Extra tip. For the days at the beach, make sure to reapply sunscreen every hour to make sure your skin is well protected.
