It was one heck of a June Gloom, but that doesn’t mean you can’t glow and glisten this summer with our no-sweat and summer-proof beauty secrets. Thankfully, there’s hope for us Southern Californians as we take on our beloved summer by the beach. We have scoured the internet looking for the best no-sweat and summer-proof beauty secrets, and even tossed in some of our own tips and tricks to help you maintain your beauty and glow all summer long.
Keep Your Makeup On Your Face
We think you’re beautiful no matter what, but summer means we all need a little help keeping our face-makeup on. The problem: heat. The solution: primer. Our go-to is Laura Mercier’s Radiance primer that helps create a smooth, flawless canvas for makeup application. The non-comedogenic formula is designed to not clog pores and only adds two to three seconds to your beautification routine. It also creates a luminous base that allows your foundation, bronzer and blush stay on your face beautifully.
Spray Us Golden
If you want to constantly stay golden, you can use a combination of sunbed and spray sessions also known as a double-dipping on a weekly basis. The key for maintaining an even color, spray tan after spray tan, is to exfoliate your skin every few days. If you can’t spray tan once a week (*Hint: Mystic Monday is your bestie), you have to keep in mind that your spray tan will diminish quicker in the summer as you may be out and about, and in and out of water. iTAN spray tans will give you a range in color intensities from light to dark to choose from. If you’re looking for a more personalized service, select iTAN locations have a handy dandy spray gun for a customized airbrush tan performed by one of our consultants.
