Even though the last trend of this season is to give a wet effect to makeup, the Heat can play a trick on us. We bring you some simple beauty tricks to prevent unwanted glitters from ruining your face this summer.
Our skin can become our best ally and, at the same time, our worst enemy, especially in summer. We love having a clean, luminous, and brown face, but when the dreaded glitters appear in the T zone, you can already give up all the effort you have put into leaving the house perfect.
Although in some girls, this problem is inherited (damn genetics!), Heat is one of the factors that most influence the appearance of annoying glitters on the face. Warm climates stimulate sebum secretion in the sebaceous glands to prevent dehydration of our skin. One more degree of ambient temperature represents a 10% increase in sebum production—what a pleasant way to help us not get dehydrated (irony mode ON).
After several days of pleasant temperatures, it seems that the intense Heat is back to stay. And since we do not want oily skin to ruin us, again, summer, we bring you some tricks that although they will not stop the natural process of sebum production, they can control it.
How many short times will we have seen in the fridge, small bottles of makeup and moisturizers? Our mothers inherited this trick from our grandmothers, and they were not misled. If Heat is supposed to increase sebum production, it stands to reason that cold can reduce this effect, causing the pores to close. And yes, putting beauty products in the fridge, and cleaning our skin with cold water can help us reduce the side effects of Heat on our skin. What the grandmothers do not know …
Bet on the masks
We can not neglect our daily beauty routine, especially on the hottest days of summer. It is essential to clean the impurities of the face every day, but also to carry out an in-depth cleaning a couple of times a week. If you think that wearing masks in summer is too much, you are very wrong. You can use one that doesn’t weigh down your skin and end up with clogged pores, like the Skin Best Wonder Mud, which gives your face fresh air.
Change your makeup
If we don’t wear the same clothes in summer as in winter, why do we wear the same composition all year round? In summer, we don’t need to put on as much makeup, so change your foundation for a colored cream, like a BB cream. You will have hydrated skin and a unified tone. There are thousands of colored creams on the market, but our favorite is the Aquasource BB cream because it gives the skin extra hydration and, at the same time, a mattifying appearance, without shine for 8 hours.
Watch what you eat
To feel good inside and out, it is essential to take care of our food, because after all, we are what we eat. And as with makeup, food is another factor that we must condition according to the season of the year. For the summer, we need foods rich in vitamin A, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, green leafy vegetables, or melon, which reduce sebum production, giving our face a natural shine. They also protect your skin from UV rays, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop putting on sunscreen. Use one that absorbs excess shine, such as Biotherm Dry-Touch sun cream.
