My top 5 summer beauty tips and tricks.

Now that summer has seriously arrived. (It reached 28 degrees up here in the North yesterday!) I wanted to blog about some of my summer beauty tips and tricks and share them with you guys. Aside from the obvious of being sensible in the sun and applying SPF, of course…

1. Place fragranced body mists and body sprays in the fridge to keep them cold. That way when you spray them you feel refreshed and cool as well as smelling good. Bonus. Nail polishes also apply better when they are cold, so they can be stored in the fridge too. A few Victoria’s Secret sprays and Essie polishes next to my milk…
2. I love the beach but hate the sand, it gets everywhere. Your shoes, feet, the car on the journey home. Baby powder / talc is a godsend. Simply sprinkle it over your legs / feet / anywhere there’s unwanted pesky sand, and it will absorb it and you can simply brush it off. 
3. Avoid the dreaded fake tan disasters. Aka the false tan hands. If I remember to do so…I exfoliate the palm of my hands with a gentle scrub and rinse them under warm water, right after I false tan (even if I use a mit) however baking soda and warm water will also remove those dreaded fake tan patches. We’ve all been there. 
4. If you do overdo it in the sun, soothe your sunburn by adding aloe Vera gel in a ice cube tray. Then gently rub the ice cubes over the sunburn to cool it, ease the pain and reduce redness. I have a feeling these are a godsend… A lot better than a bottle of luke warm after sun lotion that’s for sure. 
5. Sweat proof your make up. Use a primer underneath your foundation,  apply waterproof mascara to avoid it smudgig and causing panda eyes, setting sprays and powders will make sure your foundation stays put and help to reduce any shine.

    Fab post. I will be using the baby powder on sand trick as I always take some away with me. But the body spray in the fridge is such a clever idea.
