Summer Beauty Tips & Tricks

The Esthetician Says I love summer: sun, heat, humidity, “smaller” clothes, ice cream and longer days. Summer, however, also means adjusting my beauty and skin care routine to the season. Specifically, here are a few beauty tips to keep you cool and cool-looking during the hot summer months:

  • Remember your body. Aging doesn’t stop at the jaw line – indeed, my father (before Norah Ephron in I feel bad about my neck) always told me to look at a woman’s neck and décolleté to determine her age. Our faces lie … our necks tell the truth! Extend that to arms, legs, and feet. Think of our Alchimie Forever Alexandrite Firming Gel for Neck and Bust, and our Alchimie Forever Erbium Body Lotion.

  • Open toe shoes = feet are more visible. Don’t skip that pedicure, and in between your visits to your favorite nail salon, use our Alchimie Forever 532nm Antioxidant Relief for Hands and Feet.

  • In hot and humid weather, your skin loses less of its moisture and needs less hydration. Switch to a lighter moisturizer. Our Alchimie Forever Yttrium Protective Morning Cream is perfect.

  • Ironically, however, in hot and humid weather, we sweat more, and so our body needs more hydration. Remember to drink a lot of water (says me, who often drinks 8 cups of coffee and then finishes the day with a glass of wine…)

  • In hot and humid weather, my hair looks like a mess. Hence my summer hair day go-to trick, a loose bun. Then the messy look looks like it is done on purpose – and it stays off my shoulders and keeps me cooler.

  • Summer = sunscreen is mandatory. No exceptions. Hopefully, summer also means some time by a beach, or at least by a pool. I never lie out in the sun – always under an umbrella, in the shade. And you would be surprised how tanned you can get, lying in the shade, wearing 50+ sun screen.

  • And lastly, in summer, I like a little more color … brighter lipstick (pinks, corals, reds) is a must.

Enjoy the summer, stay cool and stay beautiful!
