The heat is on as The US is under siege in one of the worst heat waves in years. Not only can this be dangerous but it can be deadly for your fresh makeup application. Perspiration, humidity, and heat do a number on your morning makeup, often requiring you to reapply throughout the day. The moisture attracts dust and particles that glob onto your makeup do more damage. Never fear; Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Survival Kit is on guard!
It’s essential to protect your skin during a heat wave, especially if you live in a dry climate. A generous layer of a broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF, will offer protection against damage from the sun — UVB (burning and potentially cancer-causing) UVA (skin-aging). Slather it on!
If you are exercising or swimming, remember to reapply afterward. And you happen to know (or be) a balding male or head-shaver, protecting the scalp is very important.
Do you wear foundation or powder? Avoid whenever possible if you plan to be outside in this heat. Less is best until the temps rise a bit. But if you do need to wear a little make up, and you’re not planning to be outside all day, Slay All Day will set your makeup and help keep it from melting off. After you cleanse your skin, remember to apply sunblock and moisturiser.
Smoothe on Gerard Cosmetics BB Plus Illumination Creme. Whatever your complexion, it adds golden undertones and dimension with a youthful glow. When the temps balance out and you’re ready for more coverage, you can use it as a cream highlighter or a primer. If you prefer, mix it with your favorite foundation or moisturizer. For now, it’ll give you a little color.
Unless you live in a humid climate, your hair can suffer damage from dryness during a heatwave. Spray your hair with sunscreen and tie it back. You may want to go au natural and forgo the blow dry until the intense heat subsides. Many beauty experts recommend moisturizing hair with coconut oil, an avocado mash or your favorite moisture-adding combo.
Regular skincare is the most important step in your beauty regimen. Cleanse daily, more often during intense heat. Allow your pores to breathe by applying makeup lightly and be sure to cleanse before bed.
