OCTOBER 27, 2022

Summer is in full swing, which can only mean one thing: heat. Love or hate it, you can’t deny that it’s the perfect excuse for a vacation. Change your surroundings, recover from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and take refuge from the roasting temperatures. Even for a brief moment, it’s a short-lived respite that goes a long way for your overall well-being and mental state.

But among the many things that you have to prepare for your summer vacation, alongside the swimsuits, gaming devices, and other necessities, are your beauty needs. Beneath the scorching sun, it’s important to be both mindful and strategic about how makeup and skincare are used together. Nevertheless, making the most of the season does not have to entail confronting the sun bare-faced. And trust us, maximum enjoyment can be easier achieved when you are at your most confident.

Together with Rustan’s The Beauty Source, we take a look at some essential items and top tips and tricks on how to look and feel good during this sultry season.

Have a Versatile Skincare Selection

On the day-to-day, it’s good to be in tune with what your skin needs. Like the weather, your skin’s condition may vary throughout the week, which means it’s good to stock up on skincare products that can adapt to whatever you’re feeling or how the environment changes, especially when you’re traveling.

Set The Mood with Scents

Just because you’re away for the weekend doesn’t mean you can’t make any room you visit feel like home. Find handy products that don’t take up too much space in your luggage, but at the same time make a big difference in adding energy and ambience wherever you go.

 Hydration is Key

A glass of water isn’t always enough when it comes to staying hydrated. Having a bottle of your favorite face mist is important and it doesn’t hurt to be ready for a spritz or two when you’re on-the-go. And at the end of the day, unwind with a moisturizing face mask to make up for all the heat-induced stress building up on your skin.

Keep Your Skin Smooth and Mattified

It’s not always time to shine. Keep a variety of powder products on hand to combat the oiliness that comes from the humidity and excessive warmth of a long summer day. Opt for lightweight and natural textures and tones to help you stay fresh whenever you need a touch-up.

 It’s All In The Eyes

Wearing makeup in the middle of the sweltering heat may not be your top priority, but if you just want to look a little more put-together, adding some emphasis to your eye area may be the key. Regardless of the occasion or time of day, it always helps to have basic grooming products for your lashes and brows to give them more volume. Swiping on some shimmer for your eyelids will add a little more oomph, too.

Protection and Prevention Are Vital

Experts often say that sun exposure is the main cause of skin aging, and in the summer, that risk is amplified tenfold. Be prepared for all the fun you’re going to have in the sun by equipping yourself with the right SPF for the daytime and rejuvenating treatments for the evening. It’s never too early to start—trust us, you won’t regret it!

Prepare Your Emergency Remedies

Whether it’s a solo trip or you’re out with a big group, chances are you will encounter some skin issues along the way. Whether it’s chapped lips, a stubborn pimple, or some rough patches from the climate, make sure to carry with you some universal products that will help ease whatever comes up.

Achieve An Effortless Summer Glow

If you’re going for a sun-kissed look, there’s no need to spend hours under the sun. Packing your bronzer of choice can go a long way when it comes to adding some glitz and shine to your complexion. You can lighten it depending on the occasion and adjust as needed for that fresh-from-the-beach appeal.

Find Gentle Ingredients (Because The Heat Is Harsh Enough!)

The summer season is undoubtedly one of the most challenging times for our bodies. Instead of piling on one too many products to try and feel better, try being more mindful about what you put on your skin and body instead. Try incorporating all-natural ingredients into your mix to lessen the load on your pores and senses. They’ll get the work done just the same, and chances are they’ll give you an extra boost you didn’t even know you needed.

Go With Your Most Reliable Lipsticks

Packing one too many lipsticks tends to be tempting to do, especially because they’re so tiny. But before you pour your entire collection into your makeup bag, try and think of your top two favorite shades to avoid clutter as you go. To maximize what you have, opt for one daring option for a pop-of-color in case you’re in the mood to party, and have one natural shade for daily use to get that no-makeup glow on the go.
