Summertime… It’s a favorite season for many people.
Whether you spend summer on the waves or the sand, at the pool, playing sports, hiking, biking or something else, many of summer’s best activities take place outside.
Summer can also be a tricky season.
Sun, wind, saltwater waves and chlorine pools can all cause damage, dullness and dryness to your skin and hair. You can also count on the intense heat and humidity of summer to melt makeup in moments.
With a few simple adjustments, you can protect your skin and hair from summer’s intensity and gently restore them when the season takes its toll.
No matter what you have planned this season, we share three strategies to manage summer, below.
1. Protect your skin and hair from the sun.
The sun’s rays can do a lot of damage to your skin.
Unprotected, UV rays from the sun can damage every layer of our skin and lead to long-term health problems.
That’s why it’s important to protect your skin from the sun as much as possible.
Experts suggest seeking shade during the most intense part of the day, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
When you can’t seek shade, keep your skin covered with loose, long clothing.
When you can’t keep it covered, protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays with a gentle sunscreen.
The sun can also dull your hair’s shine, especially if your hair is silver, blond or color-treated. A wide-brimmed hat protects the delicate skin of your face and scalp, as well as your hair.
2. Cool and restore weather-beaten skin.
Summer’s heat and sun, along with wind and exposure to sand and water can all leave your skin feeling rough, chapped and dry.
After exposure to the elements, be sure to replenish your skin with a cooling, liquid moisturizer.
We suggest Boom Calm®. This restorative moisturizer was designed to refresh and soothe your skin after exposure to harsh weather with gentle essential oils like calendula, lavender and geranium.
Aloe vera and olive oil hydrate to help minimize peeling after sunburn.
The liquid formula makes Boom Calm easy to apply anywhere on your body after time in the sun, sand, wind or water.
3. Choose easy-to-apply makeup.
No matter what products you choose, summer’s heat and humidity can melt it off in moments.
You may also be reapplying sunscreen or moisturizer on top.
Add in the longer summer days and makeup just doesn’t stand a chance.
We suggest choosing makeup that you can easily reapply when you need to, like the Boomstick Trio®.
These three incredible sticks are all you need for a complete look and can easily be reapplied—even without a mirror. First, hydrate your skin to create a dewy glow with Boomstick Glo®, our convenient moisturizing stick.
Apply this creamy moisturizer to your forehead, around your eyes and mouth and down your neck for soft, hydrated skin.
Next, create a sun-kissed look—without the sun damage—by dabbing Boomstick Color®onto the apples of your cheeks, forehead and neck and using your fingers to blend it into your skin.
This multitasking cosmetic can even be applied to your lips for the perfect summer color.
Last, add a subtle touch of radiance with Boomstick Glimmer®, our pearlescent highlighter.
This creamy cosmetic gives your skin a natural-looking glow. Dab it on your brow bones, cheekbones, neck and décolletage for shimmering radiance.
The best part? All three sticks can easily fit in your purse or pocket for quick touch-ups anywhere.
Protecting your skin and hair from summer’s extremes makes this warm, fun season even better. We hope these tips will help you enjoy it fully.
