Sweatproof Your Summer Make Up

Perspiration – while it keeps our bodies cool and can be great for our skin, it can also be a huge dampener (literally) on our beauty regime. Here are our best tips for keeping your hair, skin and make-up fresh in the summer heat.

1. Make Up Tip: Use long-wear formulas 
Let’s face it - most of us are too busy to reapply makeup throughout the day. The key to avoiding summer makeup meltdowns is easy: use a good quality, long-wearing foundation like the Infallible Total Cover that’s formulated to stay put on those long, hot days.

2. Make Up Tip: Switch your mascara formula

Those prone to dreaded raccoon eyes should opt for a waterproof, smudge-proof mascara. Cue: Paradise Waterproof Mascara. Use an eyelash curler before applying your mascara for a wide-eyed look, and avoid piling it on as it can lead to clumpy, dry-looking lashes.

3. Make Up Tip: Invest in a primer

As the weather gets warmer and the sun comes out, our skin can become prone to redness and discolouration. To correct redness and create a smooth canvas for foundation, Infallible Anti-Redness Primer will give you a flawless complexion and preparation for makeup.

4. Hair Care Tip: Moisturise your hair

Your locks need plenty of summertime TLC as heat makes your hair, particularly the tips, prone to dryness and frizz. Keep your tresses and scalp in tip-top shape by using a conditioner on the ends only. This puts the moisture where it’s needed and keeps your roots free from greasiness. If you’re short of time, apply Botanicals Lavender Conditioning Balm to your ends to repair thirsty strands on the go.

5. Skin Care Tip: Battle breakouts

Keep blemishes at bay by cleansing twice daily to eliminate any impurities that can lead to a breakout. Regular exfoliation is also important to keeping your skin squeaky clean, but don’t rub too hard as it can damage your skin. Sugar Scrubs have just the right amount of grit to smooth while being kind to your skin.
