So, instead of thinking about your hot girl summer glow, you’re probably worried about sunburns, greasy skin, breakouts, and all the annoying skin issues summer brings. If you didn’t know before that switching up your skincare routine as the season’s change is a total game-changer, you do now. Getting ‘that girl’ summer glow is totally possible.
It’s a good thing you found us because we’ve got all the skincare tips and tricks to make sure you get that luminous glow throughout this summer.
6 Ways To Get ‘That Girl’ Summer Glow
1. Do Not Step Out Without Sunscreen
The number one rule of summer (in our books) is to apply a lot of sunscreen. There’s not enough emphasis on how important sunscreen is, especially during summer. Summer rays can be harsh on your skin so there’s a need to protect it. Exposing your skin to direct sunlight without a protective SPF layer can cause uneven skin tone, sunburns, wrinkles, and other skin reactions that’ll ruin your ‘that girl’ summer glow. Sunscreen also allows your skincare products to stay intact when you step out.
Your go-to sunscreen should have a 30 or 40 SPF broad spectrum for maximum effect. Sunscreen should also be reapplied on every single part of your body that’s exposed to sun rays.
2. There’s Need For Moisturizing
Please don’t undermine the importance of moisturizing during the summer. Moisturizing your skin keeps it from getting dry which then slows down the production of oil. Keep in mind that the moisturizers you use for winter aren’t needed here. You need to get lightweight, oil-free moisturizers. Serums also play a very important role here to prevent flaking and maintain an even skin tone.
The Mayan Magic Face Serum is rich in vitamin E and MHRB which promotes smooth and glowing skin.
3. Summer Skincare: Gentle Cleansing with Mariposa and Mayan Magic
You produce more oils in the summer which is expected and this can cause breakouts and uneven texture. Deep cleaning your face at least twice a day is important and no we’re not talking about daily exfoliation or using harsh face cleansers. The goal isn’t to strip out all the moisture from your skin; you only want to get rid of all the impurities and dirt build-up from makeup and other products to leave your skin feeling fresh again.
The Mariposa Gentle Soapless Cleanser and the Mayan Magic Face Bar restore collagen production and also balance the skin’s oils among other benefits. Body bars like the Mayan Body Bar also moisturize and cleanse your entire body to get that healthy glow.
4. It’s The Season For Light Makeup
To achieve ‘that girl’ summer glow, you can’t skip the makeup however we advise that you go light. The weather is already hot and humid so heavy makeup makes it hard for your skin to breathe. We know you need to slay and we want that for you so consider switching up some of your makeup products with powder-based products. Powder-based makeup products don’t clog your skin and they still give full coverage. However, you need to moisturize properly before applying them for the best result.
5. Summer Glow: Unclog Pores with Mayan Charcoal or Magic Mud Mask
You certainly can’t do without exfoliating in summer. With the number of products you keep applying to your skin to keep it healthy and protected from UV rays, you need to deep clean your pores. Exfoliating unclogs your pores and gets rid of all the dirt and dead skin cells. Do this at least twice a week this summer to give your skin a natural glow.
6. Summer Hydration: Water, Hydrating Masks, and Toners for Glowing Skin
Last but certainly not least, drink a lot of water and also use hydrating masks and toners this summer.
The Mayan Magic Face Toner is water-based making it perfect for ph level balancing and hydration.
With these tips, your ‘that girl’ summer glow is totally achievable!
