As we have been hunkered down in our homes summer has snuck it’s way in and we are experiencing those hot, sometimes muggy days. That means our melting makeup, excessive sweating and an increase in risk of skin aging (with our technology nowadays how are wrinkles still a thing?) We want to share with you some of our favorite tips in summer proofing your beauty routine to last through the hot summer months.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
One myth I hear people mention often is that they do not moisturize because it will make their skin oilier. On the contrary, the lack of moisture causes the skin to create more sebum/oil to overcompensate for the lack thereof and thus cause oil to break down makeup when it is overly hot and humid. Pick a moisturizer for your skin type (unless your skin is extremely dry during summer we recommend a quick absorbing face oil with an oil-free moisturizer or just the latter for normal to dry and an oil free moisturizer or mattifying moisturizer for oily skin types.)
If you are prone to sweating on your face, there are anti-sweat priming liquids out there like Mehron Skin Prep Pro.
There is nothing that I love more than Christmas and weddings, so when they are combined, it’s absolutely amazing. P + S planned their Yountville wedding at the end of December during the only time both of their busy schedules allowed.
Transitioning our skin care to adjust to the seasons is extremely important. As the weather becomes colder and drier, our skin has different needs from the warmer months. Here’s share three tips for transitioning your skin for the fall and winter months.
