Does it feel like Summer where you are yet? Please tell me you are nodding while saying, ‘Yes! Finally!’ I’m certain this has been one of the longest, most bizarre winters I have experienced. Between the yo-yo temperatures – one day it is 74, the next it is 47 and the constant torrential downpours (we are still experiencing those, by the way), I wasn’t sure I was ever going to pack my boots and cool-weather clothes away.
And yet, I took the plunge. It could be the California girl in me or it could simply be that I am bound and determined to win this battle of wills with Mother Nature. If it must come down to the last one standing, I swear it will be me. And by then, it will be warm. I promise.
So, in preparation for the heat that I know is just around the corner (heaven knows we are going to jump right from mild to sweltering – but you won’t hear me complaining), I thought it would be fun to talk about some fun beauty tips and secrets that keep us feeling especially fresh and lovely during these hotter months. Like you, I know it can be a chaotic time of year – between Summer Camps, the kids clamoring to hit the pool and planning for (and PACKING FOR) whatever vacations you might have planned, it can be easy to forget to do those little things that prioritize you. But I also know taking a little time for you can be the difference between a sane you and a crazed you.
And who doesn’t love the sane, relaxed Summer You?
Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Summer Beauty Secrets:
Are any of these already on your list? I’m hoping sunscreen is at the top. What would you add? I would love to know your favorite beauty secrets for this time of year!
