As the country gets out, masks are coming off, a bit of our life is coming back more! We are wanting to get geared up for the holiday weekend and summer season to come. I already see here in steamy and hot Florida, we went from a few weeks of spring to actual full blown SUMMER temperatures. It isn’t easy looking and feeling fresh and pretty when you are sweating.
But the time is definitely right to go beyond face covers and face masks to a little bit of bronzer, gloss and lipstick.
I LOVE the sun 🌞 But I don’t BAKE in the sun. It isn’t worth it. I did it I know.
Here are a few of my basics on bronzers:
A little bronzer goes a long away and a little bit of makeup can make a big difference. Bronzer is the quickest, easiest way to give your face and skin a golden glow. SAFELY!
Cream Bronzers: Cream bronzers and products give a luminescense that you won’t get from a powder. They are wonderful for all skin types but normal to dry skin really loves it. Apply and blend it on cheekbones,temples and even add a dash on the eyelid or brow bone.
Powder Bronzers: Powder bronzers create a matte finish on the skin unless of course it is one with a touch of shimmer to it. If you find a shiny face is your faces usual mode. Choose matte over shimmer bronzers. Lightly blend with brush or fingers on the temples,cheeks and bridge of nose.
Gel or Bronze Oil Drops: These are somewhat newer and are the sheerest of formulas.They feel light and leave the skin dewy.Apply a small amount all over the face and neck for a subtle glow.
Please note: Some bronzers may be used on eyelids or on lips. Look for ones that are called multi-tasking sticks.
A word of beauty wisdom here!
You still need to use a sunscreen UNDER these products.
Wearing Bronzer does not protect you from a sunburn. It simply gives you a bronze golden glow.
I love the month of May! Depending where you live the weathers warming up a bit, the flowers are in bloom and spring really speaks to us.
Flowers are the perfect pick me up!
Sunshineon our shoulders brightens our day!
Fruit and veggies arrive and we can enjoy the freshest ones in season.
It is also a time to remember to ADD even more sunscreen into our daily ritual. A shot glass filled is a great start. If you’re spending time outdoors or at the beach you’ll need to apply it even more.
It is SKIN Cancer Awareness month and this is a reminder don’t forget to wear sunscreen. SPF is the skin care secret for less wrinkled and to stop damaging your skin. The sun 🌞 can give you skin cancer in rain ☔️ or shine.
As a skin cancer SURVIVOR I urge you to do this! Not for me but for YOU and the health of your skin too.
My clients always ask me the secret to having younger looking skin?
Sunscreen, a good nights rest and not going to sleep with makeup on is at the top of my list answer.
It is skin cancer awareness month and it is time to remind ourselves to pick up a new tube of your fave sunscreen.
No, last years Sunscreen 🧴 tube won’t work. Old, once opened or if stored in a bright, warm or hot place it has lost its potency to protect. The formulas not the same. You need to start fresh!
People in Florida have begun to go to the beach 🏖 again and signs They have been there are are showing. I see red lobster 🦞 faces, peeling faces, dry inflamed skin. It isn’t very pretty as they race to chase the sun and a bit of color. I realize people are restless. A pandemic isn’t much fun is it?
But SKIN CANCER is probably worse. Especially if it is Melanoma. Skin cancer can be fatal. Protect that baby and your children and your own skin! DAILY not just during skin cancer awareness month. While you are at it call your dermatologist and book your annual exam. Mine is booked later this month.
If you own a spa, salon or beauty business and you’re back open again or have an online shop. Consider retailing sun 🌞 protection. Sunscreen & Bronzer are a winning combination!
I often hear women ask… What is your beauty secret for looking younger? Or I want to look younger fast! What can I do?
I think you know the answer. Skin cancer is a sneaky disease. Arm yourself! Please wear SUNSCREEN and throw on some shade too! 😎
You CAN enjoy the sunshine. You just need to do it wisely.
