You’re probably getting ready to go out on a quick vacation with friends or family, or on a weekend or short outing with your loved one, and are excited to click those gorgeous selfies.
But what if your makeup starts to melt in this heat?
Or what if the makeup that you wear leaves you with breakouts that leave behind ugly scars?
Using makeup and other skin care products on your skin in summers can clog the pores and damage your skin.
These tips can prevent damage and still let you wear makeup to get those fun and gorgeous summer selfies.
1. Moisturizing In Summer Is Actually Good
It sounds just the opposite of what you may want to do in the summer, but using a light weight moisturizer is actually good for your skin. This will also act as a shield against the sun and adds a protective layer between the skin and the makeup. When you sweat, the moisture gets drained from your skin. Applying a light moisturizer will retain your skin’s natural softness and keep it hydrated.
2. Go For Lighter Makeup Alternatives

Using a foundation can no doubt make your skin look perfect and even toned, but in summers, this could really wear down your skin. Foundations have a heavy base, which means they will block your pores and will not allow your skin to breathe. As a result, the dirt and sweat gets trapped in your skin which can further lead to breakouts. Instead of such heavy products, use lighter makeup alternatives in summers.
3. Use Rose Water As A Finishing Touch
Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that will help to reduce any existing acne or breakouts, and will also prevent the appearance of the same. It is also very helpful in reducing the redness or irritation that you feel on your skin in the summers. Once you have applied your makeup, spray some of the rose water to help your makeup set and also to tone your skin. You can also carry some rose water in a spray bottle and use it in the day to freshen up your skin.
To keep your skin healthy and let it breathe nicely through the summer months, try the above. Also, remember to use a sunscreen every day and keep yourself hydrated, as these will keep your skin safe from sun damage.
