Sizzling Summer Beauty

(CARLSBAD, CA) – Looking to spice up your look - and your attitude - this summer? It doesn’t take much. Just a few small changes in your daily routine can give you a hot look and a new lease on life. Check out these top ten tips for creating looks that sizzle this summer.

  1. Create a Glow – Staying out of the sun to protect yourself from skin cancer doesn’t mean that you’re destined to a blanched-out look all summer. Look for a high-quality self-tanning bronzer in a bottle. Just remember to fully exfoliate before applying the self-tanning product, so that you get a smooth, even look.
  2. Smooth Moves – Want smooth, silky legs? Wait a few minutes after hopping in the shower before you start shaving. Allowing the warm water to soak into your skin for 3-5 minutes will soften your hair shaft, so that you can get a closer shave.
  3. Prime It Up – To keep your make-up from melting, use a primer first. Apply an eye shadow base or primer to keep your liner and shadow in place. Invest in waterproof mascara to keep your lashes looking long and luscious.
  4. Go Bold – Be adventurous with a bright, vibrant color on your toenails. Pale colors fade more easily when exposed to sand or UV rays, but bright colors will shine away.
  5. Soak it at Home – If time and money don’t allow for a full spa pedicure, then create your own foot soak at home. Fill a basin with warm water, Epson salt, and a dash of scented oil. Remove rough spots with a homemade concoction of olive oil and sugar.
  6. Stay Hydrated – Dehydration can take a toll on your skin, hair, and overall look. Drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water per day, especially during hot, summer weather.
  7. Get Moving – Stay active this summer with water sports, hikes, or bike rides. You’ll be more confident in your tank top after you’ve burned a few extra calories. Jazzercise Founder and CEO Judi Sheppard Missett suggests a minimum of 30 minutes of physical exercise on most days of the week.
  8. Less is More – Ditch the heavy make-up this summer and opt for a lightweight foundation instead. Apply foundation or powder in the center of your face, where the most unevenness tends to occur. Then use a brush to blend it outward.
  9. Take a Chance – Summer is a good time to experiment with your look. Talk with your hairstylist about a new cut, try a different shade of lipstick, or add some essential oils into your bubble bath.
  10. Shine from the Inside Out – Nothing is more beautiful than a confident woman. Write down a list of your positive qualities – your sense of humor, your loyalty to friends, or your talent for writing poetic verses. When you’re feeling down, take a look at your list, add a little strut to your step, and let your inner beauty shine.
