Weighted skin care in summer
heat can feel like torture, but don’t
assume a warmer climate means
your skin doesn’t need TLC. Store
away your heavy moisturizer for
a few months, but switch to a
hydrating serum before bed and a
lightweight lotion during the day.

SPF is crucial all year long, but
daily use is especially necessary
in the summer because our skin is
more frequently exposed to harmful
rays. These rays are the number one
accelerator of lines and wrinkles!
It’s worth an extra layer and one
more step to save your skin!
REMOVE THE MASK.
Thanks to groundbreaking
technology, we can expect more
from our foundation. It should not be
used to cover, but to perfect. You can
have it all! Look for a lightweight
foundation that has sheer coverage
and long wearability (usually a
demi-matte ﬁnish). Use a dab of
concealer on blemishes or spots to
add coverage instead of opting for a
full coverage foundation. But please
don’t hide your beautiful freckles!
PUT DOWN THE
Achieve a natural sun-kissed look
with a liquid or cream blush. It will
feel lighter on the skin and beat out
powder blush’s staying power in the
midst of heat and humidity by hours.

What’s your makeup wardrobe for summer?
A wool coat in 80-degree weather is just as
out of place as a full coverage, hydrating
foundation. With temps rising, it’s time to
reassess your beauty products and shed
those winter layers! The right formulas
for face, lips, and eyes will bring out your
natural beauty – without the weight!

For day wear, ease up on the opaque
matte lipsticks, liners, and thick
glosses. Instead, paint your lips
with a sheer tint or balm. Most
have Shea butter or vitamin E to
condition, and some will even have
SPF to protect your pout! No matter
how bold you go, the application
doesn’t require a mirror, so you
can apply poolside or even while
cycling through Central Park.

SKIP THE LINER.
One of my favorite summer eye
designs includes only two elements:
a ﬂesh-toned radiant shadow and a
feathery lash. It’s so fresh and light.
I doubt you will miss the anxiety
of smudged or running eyeliner,
anyway. Bye-bye, raccoon eyes!
