Heat-Proof Your Makeup With These Summer Skincare Tips

Don't let the sun ruin your makeup goals! Outsmart the heat with these summer-proof makeup tips.

Choose Your Skin Care Wisely

It's important to use skincare products that are made specifically for your skin type. For instance, if you have oily skin, you'll want products made for sebum control. The right products will prep your skin for makeup application and help manage your skin concerns throughout the day. You can have even more fun in the sun knowing your skin care products are still working hard even while you sweat.

What you put in your body is just as important! Skincare supplements work from within to keep your skin balanced (think: no excess sebum or dry patches). Our Vital Proteins® Original Collagen Peptides help to support healthy skin and give you that all-over glow!** Collagen can also help promote healthy skin texture so you can feel comfortable going even lighter on the makeup.**

Reverse the Steps

Translucent powder is an effective and comfortable way to ensure your makeup stays where you want it to. Most of us usually puff our faces with powder after we apply coverage, but for summer, try powdering your face before you apply foundation. Applying powder first ensures that your face is free of excess oil and provides a smoother surface for your foundation to lay flat on. While in the sun, the powder acts as a barrier between sweat and your foundation, soaking up any moisture before it has a chance to melt off your makeup.  

Lighten Up

One of the best things about summer is everything is lighter! Our clothes are less bulky, our diets aren't as heavy, even the summer color palettes are brighter. The same should apply for your makeup routine. In the hot temperatures, less is more. Instead of full coverage foundation, try a tinted moisturizer or BB cream! These give you a more light and natural dewy look that is perfect for summer.

Look for Oil-Free Products

It’s no surprise that oil is a major ingredient in many makeup products. Even brow pencils are full of the stuff. While oil has its benefits, for summer you might want to  consider ditching it. We all know that sun plus oil equals bad news. Try swapping pencils for powders, and look for silicone based foundations. Oil-free makeup also helps prevent transferring and decreases the chance of your makeup slipping.

The last thing you want to be worried about this summer is your makeup! Keep your skin looking great all day long with these easy tips and tricks. You'll spend less time checking the mirror and more time having fun in the sun!
