Ten summer beauty hacks

How to stay gorgeous under the hot summer sun

Summer is just right around the corner and we’re literally counting down the days to exotic beach getaways, luxurious vacations, and spontaneous days out with family and friends. You must be excited! But before you start frolicking through the season, take these beauty tips to heart to make sure you have the best—and the most beautiful summer yet!

1. Shield your skin. The hot summer sun can be particularly harsh, and sporting sunburnt skin and dark spots can really put a damper on your sweet, sunny vibe. It’s extremely important to protect your skin from excessive UV rays.
Nuxe Sun Range allows you to enjoy the sun with complete peace of mind. Formulated with water and sun flowers, it provides ideal protection while bringing you an exquisite sensory experience with its delicious textures and an incredible fragrance.
For the face, Nuxe Sun SPF50 High Protection Face Cream offers a high level of sun protection while limiting the appearance of dark spots. For the rest of your body, use Nuxe Sun SPF30 Face and Body Lotion, which is water-resistant, photostable, alcohol-free and non-comedogenic to effectively protect the face and body while activating tanning. It gives you a radiant, sun-kissed glow without the icky, greasy feel.
2. Stay hydrated. As temperatures can soar drastically in the summer, keeping a bottle of water with you all the time is a must. But instead of lugging around water in plastic bottles, grab an Aladdin Fresco Twist&Go Vacuum Bottle, which has an insulated stainless steel body to keep your drinks cold for up to 18 hours. It has a two-way lid: you can remove the top to add more water or ice and you can twist the cap off to sip. It’s versatile, leak-proof, and it comes in stylish designs which make your hydrating habits as fashionable as you are!
3. Keep it natural. Let your natural beauty shine! Flawlessly fresh looks are always perfect for the season and making that easy to achieve is Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation. Equipped with shine control, 24-hour hydration, SPF20 protection, and added vitamins, it’s easy to say that this is definitely better for your skin than having no make-up at all! This medium to high coverage foundation contains a combination of technologies designed to adapt to stress factors, so you can feel confident despite airport mishaps or lack of sleep from summer night parties.
4. Sport a sun-kissed look. Pair your perfect tan with the natural sun-kissed finish of Max Factor Crème Bronzer. With its baked-powder bronzing formula infused with micro fine pigments and baked mineral powders, this product easily blends in with your skin tone. It’s also easy to use: just use a big, soft brush and sweep it just under the cheekbones, to the hairline, the neck area and décolletage, for an instant chiseled look.
5. Go for a gorgeous glow. Summer is all about glowing skin! Achieve that healthy radiance with Make Up Factory Art of Glow Stick, a highlighter stick that gives a soft shimmer with a touch of color. It has a delicate and creamy texture which helps it blend easily and gently into the skin. Those with sensitive skin need not worry because it’s paraben-free and is suitable for any skin type.
6. Stay stylish at the beach. If you’re headed to a tropical destination, a multifunctional, water-repellant tote is just the perfect bag to carry around. The Reisenthel Mini Maxi Loftbag in Margarite can be your chic beach companion. It has a stylish, spacious design and awesome, convenient features, which allow you to store it easily into its inner pocket and unfold right when you need it.
7. Treat your skin to a nourishing after-sun care. After a day under the sun, rejuvenate your skin and hair with the Nuxe Sun Hair & Body Shampoo. With total sun care protection in mind, this head-to-toe after-sun product gently removes all residue accumulated over the course of the day, from the sand in your hair to the salt and chlorine on your skin. This luxurious hair and body shampoo with Water Hyacinth and Kau Pe Flower leaves you feeling cleansed, refreshed, and deliciously fragranced.
8. Choose a scent that can handle the heat. A sparkling fragrance is just what you need for an unforgettable summer getaway. Kenzo World Eau de Toilette gives you a fruity floral explosion, with notes of pear, peony, almond blossom and orris. It’s ideal for women who want a fresh and sparkling fragrance, a luminous and feminine scent, and a long lasting radiant trail.
Another great summer scent is the 1902 Tradition Mandarine and Cuir Eau de Cologne with top notes of cardamom, frosted mandarin, and red peppercorns. This zesty aromatic fragrance is one of the 12 colognes from 1902 Tradition Eau de Cologne by the House of Berdoues.
9. Experiment with nail color. Get that summer vibe painted on your nails with ANNY and its fresh collection of summer shades. Choose from six amazing nail polish shades such as the toned down Gorgeous Beach Life or that eye-catching Sun & Fun. ANNY nail polish provides excellent coverage and dries quickly. Definitely for women on the go!
Fill your summer beach getaway with fun physical activities—play a game of beach volleyball or enjoy water sports—without having to worry about chipped nails! Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear gives your nail color extreme strength and shine that can last up to seven days! The range is designed with an exclusive Micro Shine complex formula that bonds to nails, promising long lasting color amidst extreme activities. Collect all 36 shades and change your polish as often as you like!
10. Be party ready! One of the sweet perks of summer is the wide assortment of beach and outdoor parties that can last until the wee hours. Make BeYu Lip Lights your secret little weapon. With its integrated LED light and built-in mirror, which can be turned on and off, you can easily apply this sparkling lip color any time, any place — even in low-light conditions. Whether you wear it as as a top coat or a gloss, you’re sure to catch attention and look ultra fabulous even without too much makeup on.
Would you rather spend more time actually partying than getting ready for it? Then pick a multi-tasking product like Covergirl Outlast All-Day Ultimate Finish 3-in-1 Foundation. It gives you the beauty of liquid, powder, and concealer in just one sleek packaging. It glides on effortlessly to cover and conceal where you need it, then dries to the soft finish of a powder. It’s what you need for an ultimate natural look. Plus, it lasts all day (or night!) making it a total party beauty hack!
