Sweat-proof your skin after summer makeup
Now that you have bid adieu to colder months, it’s time to take care of yourself this summer by sprucing up your skin
Summer is full of wonderful things — but melting makeup, smeared eyeliner, and super-sticky lipstick are not among them.
Here one need to adopt best tips for keeping makeup looking fresh and pretty, even when the weather is working against you.
Slather the sunscreen
If there is one step that you must follow during spring, ithas to be this one.Skipping the sunscreen is a cardinal sin on any given day.
But the effects of it are even harsher on days when the sun is at its brightest.
Look for sunscreen withSPF 30 at least and make it a part of your daily skincareroutine before you step out of the house a quick lazy-girl.
Hack to ensure you apply sunscreen everyday is to find amoisturiser that has a generous amount of SPF in it.
ApplyIt generously not just on the face but also neck, arms, and chest or any part of the body that may be exposed to the sun.
Scrub with care
While the dryness in your skin maybe gone with the cool winds, you may think that you don't needexpoliators anymore.
However, it's during these warmer months that your skin need exfoliation the most.
Gentle exfoliation during the warmermonths saves you from clogged pores and removesblackheads and whiteheads, which in turn givesyour skin a chance to breathe.
As with any skincare product, it's best to scan the label beforehand for redflags such as fragrances and alcohol. For sensitiveskin, explicators with micro-beads work best.
Lighten the lotion

Chuck out your old make-up
We all have a soft corner for that limited-edition blush or that perfect shade of lipstick we bought a few years ago. And even though our minds tell us to bin it.
The make-up junkie in us begs to disagree spring is the time to start listening to your logic and follow the expiry dates.
This includes filtering the stash and getting rid of lipsticks that smell wired, foundations that have separated and blushes that
Have loose or damaged bristles.
Clean your brushes at least once weekly to avoid bacteria formation.
Start with the proper base
The way you care for your skin is just as important as the makeup you apply to it.
"Use an oil-free moisturiser in the morning, you should opt for an oil-free foundation formula to match.
Keep your makeup light
If you want to prevent your makeup from creasing and caking, say it less is more.
Just use a tinted moisturizer and a concealer. Makeup likes to move around when it's hot, so the best way to avoid that is to wear less of it."
