Beach Ready Beauty

You’ve been toning up and getting into shape for months, ready to flaunt your bikini body on the beach. So, now your vacation is just around the corner, its time to consider planning your holiday beauty routine.

As great as the long hot days are, they can really take their toll on your hair and skin, so it’s important to maintain good beauty habits while you’re away to ensure that you’ll look thoroughly gorgeous when you come back.

Here’s our guide to looking gorgeous both on and off the beach.

 

Heavenly Hair

Before you depart, visit your hairdresser for a good trim. Its best to remove any dry, split ends before you hit the beach to ensure your hair remains in tip-top condition.

When you’re relaxing by the pool, slather a leave-in conditioner onto your Hair. This will help to protect against damage from the sun and will leave your locks looking thoroughly shiny, as the heat makes the product even more effective.

Always rinse your tresses with fresh water after swimming in the sea or pool. Both salt and chlorine dry hair out.

Keep hair up and covered as much as possible in the daytime.

Treat your locks to a few drops of a leave-in conditioning hair oil before bed.

Sumptuous Skin

Don’t forget to cleanse, tone and moisturise. Keeping up with those beauty rituals will keep your skin looking hydrated and flawless.

Regularly apply and re-apply sunscreen. Ensuring that your entire body is protected against damaging UV rays is a must. Use a high factor, and remember to re-apply after swimming. Don’t forget to protect your lips too; use a nourishing balm that contains a sun-block.

Keep thoroughly hydrated by drinking at least 2 litres of water a day, more if you’re out in the hot sun for long periods of time.

Wear a large hat on the beach. Not only will you look chic, you’ll also be protecting the delicate skin on your face too.

Always apply after-sun lotion. A long day on the beach calls for plenty of after-sun when you get back to the hotel.

Minimal Make-Up

Keep make-up light in the day by swapping a full-coverage foundation with a tinted moisturiser. Cover imperfections with a little concealer.

Wear one coat of quality water-proof mascara on your top lashes for definition. Better still, arrange a trip to your beauty salon for an eyelash and eyebrow tint before you jet off.

Sweep a peachy coloured blush over your cheeks for a flattering look. Peach tones look fabulous with bronzed skin and are a much better alternative to pink hues which only serve to add more redness to already flushed cheeks.
