Beauty Routines For Summer Selfie Season

As the school year comes to an end and everyone is getting ready for the summer, we have more time to hang out at the beach, go to music festivals and stay out late without the worries of an assignment being due the next day. All of the events that we have planned out for the next few months are exciting, but what about what we have planned for our skin?

For the summer, we must consider things such as SPF, tanning, and different makeup routines. Although figuring out what works best for you can be a bit intimidating, I have asked a few Fashionistas for their skin care routines or any rule they always follow by.

Brittany Cuellar, Dry Skin
“My daily skincare routine consists of washing my face twice a day once in the morning when I wake up and once before I go to sleep. I use either just regular Dove soap or clean and clear blackhead eraser scrub (I switch off between them both). I do not sleep with any makeup on, and every time after I wash my face, I use Olay complete moisturizer which has SPF 15 in it.”

Yvonne Njoku, Oily Skin
“If there is one thing that I can say never EVER to do is to sleep with makeup. No matter how exhausted I was the night before, I always regret it in the morning.”

Vanesa Coger, Combination Skin
“I like to give myself a facial mask two to three times a week with Freeman’s Avocado and Oatmeal clay mask. It works wonders and smells so good too. After that, I put on Philosophy’s Renewed Hope in a Jar moisturizer, guarantee moisture throughout the day. I don’t always wear makeup, but if I don’t want look like I just rolled out of bed, I’ll put on some mascara (Urban Decay Perversion), eyeliner (Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner), and lipgloss or liptint (from Sephora or Colorpop). It gives me a long lasting glow and it takes no longer than 30 minutes.

Everyone has different routines or rules to follow by, but asking a friend and comparing tips could be a great way to find out what works best for you. A few more tips could be to always wash your face—before wearing any makeup—with a soft cleanser that won’t be too harsh onto the skin and a light moisturizer with SPF in it. Something to always keep in mind are face masks just to hydrate the skin and keep it healthy. Since sweating has a major impact on our makeup, wearing less makeup could be a huge help. An all time favorite is wearing a BB Cream or tinted moisturizer. By focusing less on makeup and more on skin care routines, the summertime could be the time to embrace the skin you’re in.Tell us your summer beauty routin@carsongarc
