reminds you of sweat, heat and a weather when it's very
difficult to look fresh and chic. Summer is a season
of fizzled hair, wrinkled clothes and bad make-up. Well
if only it would be possible to stay at home and take
care of your skin and hair. But that's not possible.
So here we are bringing you tips to take that special
care during summer to keep you looking fresh at all
times without too much of effort.
Follow the simple rules and
summer will no longer be hot and sultry:
Use The Right Fabrics
The right fabric will make you feel good and cool
in summer season. Synthetics, like polyester and rayon,
do not breathe hence should not be worn. Natural fabrics
do. Think cotton, linen and silk. Of course, these are
the ones that need the most ironing. Still go for it.
Don't worry about the wrinkled look! It's comfortable,
casual (which summer fashion is all about) and you'll
feel so much cooler.
Wear Loose Clothing
This summer loose clothing should be 'in' and body hugging
clothes should be 'out'. Looser clothes are a better
bet in the hottest months because your skin needs to
breathe and if you wear tight fitted clothes you will
feel hotter. It's logical, isn't it? Wear the free flowing
knee-length skirt. It's very comfortable in summer.
If pants you have to wear then let it be baggy or the
loose fitting pants. But trust us, skirts are cooler.
Sleeveless has been a fashion trend for years,
even on brides. Sleeveless looks hip and stylish. It's
a more flattering look than short sleeves or mega sleeves.
If you're uncomfortable going sleeveless or if it's
wrong for your workplace, then go with three-quarter
length sleeves. They're classy and still cooler. However
don't forget to apply sunscreen while going out in the
Cover Your Head
Use hats or umbrellas coz you need them to cover your
head and face from the uv-rays. Straw hats or baseball
caps work the best. The idea is to keep the sun out
of your eyes and off your face. Choose a hat or an umbrella
that accentuates your outfit and mood. Girl, you are
gonna rock the town this summer.
If it's time for a new look, cut it shorter and see
how much cooler you'll feel! If you don't want to cut
it, wear it up off your neck and off your face. Even
tucking it behind your ears makes your head feel cooler!
No Jewelry Pleae
Avoid wearing jewelry in the summer. The less jewelry
you wear, the cooler you'll feel. Accessories yourself
with beautiful purses, shoes, scarf's etc.
The less make-up you use, the better for your skin.
Let your skin breathe during summer. Full face make-up
is not in style any more (no matter what your age).
Use a tinted moisturizer rather than a regular foundation.
It will even out your skin tone and is so much lighter.
If you want to wear foundation, use a non-mattifying
make-up. It's less oily and keeps your face fresh. Wear
as little powder as possible. Try just using it in the
"t-zone" that might get a little oily. Please apply
sunscreen which is an absolute must-haves in summer.
Keep your summer fragrance light and fresh. Don't use
heavy perfumes as it tends to make you weary and dull.
You can always go back to your regular or a heavier
perfume at first frost.
