Have you ever heard someone say that girls don’t sweat, they glow? Well, I hate to break it to you, but it’s absolutely NOT TRUE! We sweat, especially in the sticky summer sun, and it’s not always pretty. Fortunately, we know some great products that will help us beat the heat…or at least look like we are. We still have plenty of hot days and warm nights ahead, so here are a few of our favorite “cool” products here at Modern Aesthetics.
1. Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is our go-to product when we’ve hit the ‘snooze’ button one too many times. However, it’s also perfect for hot summer weather. Its thick, powdery texture is great for absorbing the excess oil and moisture left behind from too much summer…glowing. Simply spray hair at the roots and let sit for 30-60 seconds. Then, brush your hair from roots to end. A good product, like this one from Living Proof, will leave your hair clean and fresh without any of the icky residues that sometimes come from other dry shampoos.
It’s just not summer without fresh cucumber. At Modern Aesthetics, we have the next best thing, Skin Script’s Cucumber Hydration Toner. The cool cucumber helps calm irritated summer skin, while the heavy water replenishes
lost moisture. Just apply a small amount of toner to a cotton ball or pad and swipe across the face. It’s the perfect product to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy after a hot day. And, it smells like summer in a bottle!
3. Waterproof Mascara
Another summer must have! There’s nothing worse than the struggle of keeping your head above water at the pool. But not all waterproof mascaras are created equal. Water and sweat can cause even waterproof mascaras to run, giving you that terrible raccoon look. LashBlast, from COVERGIRL, is a rare exception. It’s perfect for creating big, beautiful lashes that won’t melt and flake. Best part… it won’t break your summer budget.
No summer list would be complete without sunscreen. At a minimum, sunscreen shields our skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. It prevents the awful redness of sunburn, and worse, the horrible peeling that comes later. But, a good sunscreen can do so much more. Skin Script Sheer Protection SPF 30 contains active ingredients that protect and moisturize the skin. Yet, it’s sheer and lightweight enough for everyday use.
Uh oh! In the midst of all your summer fun you forgot your sunscreen. Hey, it happens to the best of us. Luckily, a good moisturizer like Skin Script’s Light Aloe Moisturizer will give thirsty summer skin the hydration it’s missing. This beauty is lightweight enough that your skin isn’t left feeling sticky, but its antioxidants still pack a punch! It helps prevent and correct the environmental damage we face from long summer days in the sun.
At Modern Aesthetics, we’re offering the Tropical Coconut Facial. Its coconut scent will make you feel like you’ve spent the day at the beach without the salty water drying out your skin. Give it a try to rejuvenate your summer skin.
