My Fresh Summer Looks
A tan, highlights that catch the sunlight, free and flirty hair, a perfect pedicure.
A bright coral lipstick, smooth legs under a gauzy skirt, smooth elbows, knees and hands.
I love Summer for a variety of reasons, but one of them is that I love the way I look with some color in my cheeks and in the wonderful bright colors of this season. I also love when my toes are polished and shiny, allowing me to show off my favorite sandals, wedges or heels.
It doesn’t take much to do this, I stand by the thought that if you have a steady hand and some patience, you can give yourself a lovely pedicure without visiting a salon. I believe that shampoo, conditioner and a lovely watermelon lipstick can be found for a great price in a drugstore like Walgreens and it can change my outlook on life by helping me create a summer look that is easy to maintain and also makes me feel beautiful.
While Summer might be looked at as a time that we can be a little lax with our beauty routines, I am here to tell you that I take great pride in bumping up my rituals during the months of June, July and August. I exfoliate more, helping my tan last longer and allowing my skin to hold onto the lotion that I take my time applying. I wear sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days, and reapply every 2 hours like I should. This helps me to maintain a healthy glow and keeps me from those painful burns, but if I do get a little too pink, a little aloe goes a long way.
I also try to find a pretty lipstick that is long wearing and goes with the bright colors I love sporting. That pop of color along with the moisturizing agents in many of today’s glosses make those chapped lips are a thing of the past.
I can’t wait to get into the Swing of Summer and I’m doing it knowing that I’m taking care of my body and my skin in the process with amazing products that I love.
