Help Beat the Heat With Your Beauty Routine

Looking your best when it’s hot and humid outside isn’t easy—just ask anyone who’s ever had to deal with melting makeup and shiny skin. Thankfully, there are several ways you can update your beauty routine for a fresh-faced look all season. Whether it’s taking a less-is-more approach to skin care or temporarily swapping out your heavier makeup, check out our roundup of seven tricks to help you beat the heat.

Most people sweat more when it’s hot out, often making powder formulas look uneven and cakey on your skin. Instead, opt for cream-based products, like our hydrating Color Pinch Cream Blushers, to give you a dewy glow.

Trade your foundation for a lightweight two-in-one tinted moisturizer, such as our Dew Skin, which comes with SPF 20 and other skin care benefits, like helping to reduce the appearance of age spots and enhance skin brightness.

Ditch darker shades for a more seasonally appropriate color palette (think pinks, peaches, and nudes—like our Lip Sheer in Coral and Lip Gloss in Buff).

Now’s the time to add a translucent setting powder to your routine, like our Mattify Skin Finishing Powder. Designed to be worn over tinted moisturizer, concealer, or bare skin, the formula blends invisibly to absorb shine.

After a long, hot day, thoroughly cleanse your face every night by applying a few spritzes of our Rosewater Uplifting Spray to your face before massaging in our Routine Clean Cream Cleanser. Then dampen organic cotton pads and remove any makeup and impurities from your skin.

No shocker here. During the summer, you should be extra vigilant about applying sunscreen. Make sure to apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure, then reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel-drying, and at least every two hours.

Now that your favorite sundresses and shorts are in rotation, you’ll want to make sure your skin looks—and feels—silky smooth. Our suggestion? Try a nourishing oil treatment, like our Lustro Body Oil, that deeply moisturizes skin and leaves behind a subtle glow.
