3. Wear flowy fabrics
I don’t care if those cringy sticky fabrics make you look thinner or smarter but for god’s sake ditch them and go for some flowy fabrics. Help your body and skin breathe. Let it feel the air.
A super ugly benefit of wearing those ultra-tight clothes is that when you’ll sweat, it will show up. Haha. Now you wanna go for loose clothes? I bet you do.
4. Opt for hair updos
I know you look extremely beautiful with your hair down. But what when sweat will make those luscious locks look greasy, smelly, and oily? So a smart tip will be to choose hair updos over leaving them open. Some stunning options are, half knots, messy buns, sleek buns, and million other options if you just search.
5. Always carry sunscreen and sunglasses
A sunscreen lasts for just 2-3 hours. And I think you need to feel that caring for yourself is more important than what others say. No matter what condition you are in or wherever you are, do not forget to reapply your sunscreen every now and then unless you want your skin to burn off. It’s fine with me. You have to see what is fine for you.
Also, you cannot apply sunscreen to your eyes, so better be clever and take your sunglasses along as well. Hey sister, eyes get tanned too and, they get harmed by UVA/UVB rays as well.
6. Carry a jacket/shrug to coverup
I might sound crazy but to protect yourself from that stubborn tan, you need to carry something to cover you up when you are in direct sunlight. Even if it’s just a flannel or a scarf.
7. Smell good 24*7
Sweat has never been beautiful. It doesn’t look good, smells bad, and feels awful. But obviously, you cannot stop it from happening. But what you can do is follow some genius smell good tips or carry some fragrance all the time. Using it when you feel like is always an awesome idea because you never know who you meet next. Maybe the man of your dreams? We don’t know. So be ready 24*7.
8. Try wearing less makeup
You love makeup. We all love makeup. But what we don’t love is it melting off the moment we step out. So if you have done everything to make your makeup last longer and nothing worked, I would suggest you follow these amazing tips, or at the end try wearing lesser makeup. Sorry girl, summer is bad. And we don’t like it either.
These are some basic tips for you on how to look good in summer but most of the time you tend to ignore them. So these being stuck in your mind, I can finally wrap up this blog post and urge you to look fresh and be healthy!
