The Perfect 2020 Guide to Summer
It’s time to take advantage of the beautiful weather summer has to offer! Although we know this summer is not like the others, one of the silver linings is the extra attention we can give to our beauty routines, getting outdoors, and spending quality time with loved ones in unique ways. So get ready to have a great time with our guide to the best summer ever!
Summer is a wonderful time to relax and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Although it makes it a bit more difficult to fully appreciate all that summer has to offer with social distancing, we have a few fun activities to share!
The first activity on our list is Hiking! Getting outdoors is a great way to get in a little exercise and to go on a quick adventure. In addition, hiking for many of us offers the ultimate escape from our everyday surroundings. Don’t forget to pack Slip Silk Skinny Scrunchies as they are the best hair ties to bring on a fun outdoor outing. These 100% silk scrunchies come in a variety of different colors to match any sporty outfit. Plus, they leave your hair without a crease while offering the ultimate hold during physical activity.
Another one of our favorite summertime activities is hosting a backyard barbeque! Here are a few tips on spicing up your summer celebration at home:
We love Regime des Fleurs in the scent Waves for a tropical fragrance to keep your surroundings smelling fresh. Spritz in the air or any form of cloth to keep the atmosphere smelling dreamy and fresh. If you’re looking for something to add to your spread, we recommend the Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom Honey Home Candle. It serves as a beautiful table accessory and the scent is a great way to add an air of luxury to any get-together.
Here are our top tips on keeping our skin safe in the sun:
- Wear sunscreen daily
- Always have SPF available
- Wear SPF-infused makeup
- Reapply SPF throughout the day, recommended every 2 hours
With so many SPF-infused products available nowadays, applying sunscreen no longer has to feel like a chore! The secret to keeping your skin safe is making sunscreen one of the steps in your everyday beauty routine, even if you decide to stay indoors.
The Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection is amazing as it leaves the skin with an invisible shield to offer the ultimate anti-aging protection. Use as a prepping base before you apply face makeup for a flawless finish.
Another favorite is the Barbara Sturm Sun Drops which is a light-textured serum for protection against environmental stressors to the skin. Use these drops alone or mix them in with your moisturizer or foundation!
