10 Beauty Tips to Stay Cool This Summer

August – the heat of the summer has arrived!

(Except for at IGIGI HQ in San Francisco – we call it “Fogust” for a good reason.)

We’ve rounded up our  Top 10 Beauty Tips to help you stay cool through fall.

OUR TOP 10 BEAUTY TIPS

1. SHEER MAKEUP

Keeping summer makeup minimal keeps you looking fresh when it’s hot and muggy outside. Think dewy skin and highlighting just one feature.

2. LIGHTEN UP

Retire your heavy foundation for tinted moisturizer.

3. SAY YES TO H2O 

Drinking more water is essential to staying hydrated and keeping you skin looking great. Make an infusion of cucumber, lime, mint and even melon to keep your tastebuds excited.

4. BUT, SAY NO TO H2O SOMETIMES

But this is the time to switch to waterproof mascara to prevent streaking!

5. FREEZE YOUR EYELINER

Put your eyeliner in the freezer for 15 minutes before applying – it should then go on seamlessly.

6. APPLY SUNSCREEN DAILY

The only way to protect your skin is by applying sunscreen everyday, as 80% of UV rays pass through clouds.

7. EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR BLOWOUT

Spray your roots with dry shampoo to keep oil at bay and your blowout for a few extra days.

8. BLOT AWAY EXTRA OIL

8 AM: Matte, fresh-looking skin.

5PM: Shiny, oily skin.

Blotting papers are a godsend and better than powder to keep you looking fresh. Sephora’s are great!

9. TRY A LIGHTER FRAGRANCE

Freshen up your fragrance with something meant for summer that evokes the beach, sand, waves and sun. We like Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Escape to Panarea (a Southern Italian island – take us too, please!); or Clean Cool Cotton, a unisex fragrance with notes of crisp green apple, citrus, and lemon zest that morphs into a minty, cottony scent that reminds us of fluffy white towels. 

10. JUST SMILE AND ENJOY

Before you know it, you’ll be grumbling as you bundle up in layers and fight the chill of winter. So put on your favorite IGIGI summer dress and enjoy what the season offers!
