While everyone is getting beach body ready we are all about getting our FACES beach ready.
Freshen up for summer with these 4 simple steps!
1) Start Hydrating Now
It’s no secret how important hydration is for the skin. According to Medical News Today, many people do not consume enough water. “When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.” This is largely because we are made of 60 percent of water and our blood is 90 percent! There is no agreed upon amount that we all need to drink, but the common consensus is at least 8 glasses of water a day.
We love adding lemons, cucumbers, and mint to our water to make it more enjoyable. Whatever you have to do, make water a priority in your life.
1) Clean Your Makeup Bag
Add cleaning your makeup bag to your Spring cleaning list. Pour everything out of your bag so you can sanitize everything. Just because you’re the only one using your makeup doesn’t mean you’re exempt from a germ party in your bag. Clean the inside of your bag (or drawer) with disinfectant (preferably non-toxic like rubbing alcohol or white vinegar). Clean your makeup brushes and leave them to dry upside down. Next throw out any expired makeup or items you won’t use ever again. Enjoy your fresh clean routine!
1) Get Your SPF On
If you don’t already have a bomb facial SPF cream or foundation, invest in one for the summer. Actually, you should be using an SPF everyday year round, but if you don’t have one yet now is a good time to start.
Look for products with a small ingredient list, that say non-comedogenic (so they don’t block your pores), hypo-allergenic (safe for sensitive skin), and non-toxic. There are some great products out there, but our favorite is Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation with SPF 30. This foundation not only provides sun protection, it is a fantastic foundation for everyday wear.
1) Enjoy a Hydrating Facial
Cold weather months can leave our skin feeling dry and agitated. Step into this summer glowing with a hydration facial available here at Beauty Oathl. A gentle exfoliant works to reveal youthful skin and our powerful hydration masque does wonders to replenish moisture loss back into the skin.
