Tuesday Trends : 4 steps to look your best in the heat (yes, it can still be hot)

1. Protect Protect Protect!
I can’t stress enough how important it is to protect your skin not just in the summer but all year round. The rays of the sun in general are extremely strong (even if you can’t see the sun, it’s still there!) Many people choose to use a sun lotion under their makeup up but I have combination skin is, therefore I get oily throughout the day so I use Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream. Hands down one of the best BB creams I have ever used. The coverage is amazing and the SPF is 25 which is perfect for the face! This BB cream isn’t available in stores, only salons.

2. Perfect beach waves
Using GHD’S or a curling iron, curl random sections of your hair to give it some volume
Spray Schwarzkopf beach matt textured spray on the middle section of your hair and the ends. Use your hands to scrunch your hair as you do this.

Lightly apply hairspray all over and you are good to go…it’s as easy as that!

3. Summer nails
In the summer most people like to go for pinks, corals and reds. Nothing wrong with that of course but these are the “safe” colours for the summer. I like to go for mint, nudes, yellow and pastels. Here are my favourite ones…try something different!

4. Hydrate
I’m sure you all know this but hydration is key to looking and feeling healthy. The average person should be drinking 1.5 litres of water every day. Water gives an amazing glow to the skin, releases toxins and is the easiest way to make a difference to your general wellbeing.

5. Tantastic
For those of you who want a healthy glow for an event or just in general, look no further than St Tropez. A lot of fake tans are exactly that-fake looking, but St Tropez works with your natural skin tone and will NOT make you go orange. You can choose between original (for the 1st timers!) or dark which to be honest is not as dark as one would think! The spray tan needs at least 8 hours to develop, you then wash it off and you will have a gorgeous all over colour. St Tropez spray tans are available in most salons. If it is your first time then make sure you ask for a senior therapist just for own ease of mind. Or if you are already a tanning expert why not try it at home?
