Water Resistant Products To Get You Through Summer
Summer is just around the corner, which means beach, BBQ’s, pool days, and sweltering heat. And as many of you know, all of these things can strip your summer essentials away. So today I want to share some of my absolute favorite water resistant products to get you through the summer heat. Are you ready for it?!
Water Resistant Favs
Don’t Forget The Sun Protection – Many sunscreens are not water resistant, which makes it pretty ineffective at the beach, pool, or in situations when you will be sweating. It is important to select a sunscreen that is specifically water/sweat resistant to avoid sun damage – and reapply as directed! Two of my favorites include: PCA Skin Active Very Water/Sweat Resistant SPF 45 and Osmosis UV Protection Harmonized Water. My PCA pick is perfect for daily use, but especially great for a day out on the water! It protects for up to 80 minutes in the water or during vigorous exercise, and is infused with caffeine for protection against cellular damage. Also, it is infused with milk thistle, which helps to suppress UVB-induced skin edema and the formulation of sunburn cells. My Osmosis pick is truly the definition of water-resistant. In fact, there is no way you can wash it off! Add 2mL to 2+ ounces of water every 4 hours to enjoy UV 30 protection from the inside out! I love pairing this with my favorite sunscreen for a double-kick against the sun.
My Hair! – Summer humidity can wreak havoc and even the most perfectly primped dos, so be sure to reach for Sexy Hair’s WEATHER PROOF Humidity Resistant Spray. I am a huge fan of this product, as it leaves my hair in-tact and looking fabulous while creating a shield against frizz-inducing humidity.
Makeup – Summer makeup is a tricky thing to figure out. Especially if you are going to be hitting the beach or the pool. And while I usually recommend going au natural, I’d rather you have good product picks than head to the beach in less-than-the-best! So, you are going to need some essentials: liner and mascara. For those of you who insist on shadow, be sure to grab a good primer. I like GloMinerals Lid Primer. For a fabulous liner give BLINC Eyeliner a try! It goes on smooth, bold, and will last you all day. Yes, even at the beach. GloMinerals Water Resistant Mascara is a definite winner as it is water resistant, lengthening, and volumizing for long lasting, dramatic lashes.
Summer Tip Essentials
- Seriously, do find a water resistant sunscreen that is to your liking! Sun damage is one of the fastest ways to age your skin. And yes, it is still damaging your skin, even if you don’t burn easily.
- Remember, beach waves are always a great summer look! Don’t be afraid to put down the flat iron and enjoy your natural tresses. WEATHER PROOF spray can help protect what is naturally yours!
- When it comes to summer makeup, less is truly more. Switch from your regular foundation to a BB Cream or tinted moisturizer. This will help to keep your face looking fresh instead of “cakey” on those extra hot days. If it happens to be water resistant, it gets extra bonus points!
- Embrace yourself! Nothing is sexier than confidence.
