Taking care of your skin: hydration and sun protection

To have beautiful skin when you go to the beach, it is important to take care of it every day. Every day, remember to clean your skin with a mild soap and moisturize it with a nourishing and moisturizing cream. This prevents the appearance of wrinkles and allows your skin to remain firm while maintaining a luminous complexion. 

When you go out in the sun, don't forget to apply sunscreen to your skin with an SPF index of 50, or even 30 if your skin is already tanned. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential to have a beautiful complexion and enhance your face. 

Take particular care of your complexion

The complexion is an essential part of a successful make-up. It should be bright and uniform. It must also adapt to the natural shade of your skin and skillfully conceal your small imperfections (pimples or dark circles more or less marked). 

The trick to having a flawless complexion is to use a tinted cream with integrated sun protection. Some are even water resistant and can last an entire afternoon. Additionally, if you haven't had time to apply color yet, you can choose a lightly tanned tinted cream to give you a natural tanned effect. 


Favor waterproof cosmetic products

Indeed, for your beach outings, you can absolutely use waterproof makeup. This has the characteristic of being water resistant and not leaking. It remains intact in all circumstances (swimming, skin perspiration, etc.). Moreover, today there is a varied range of waterproof makeup products (mascara, eyebrow pencil , eye shadow, lipstick, etc.).
