    Summer’s heat and humidity can wreak havoc on your carefully applied makeup. But fear not, glowing skin and budge-proof makeup are achievable even in scorching temperatures. Dr. Stuti Khare Shukla, a dermatologist, shares her expert tips to help your summer beauty routine withstand the elements.

    Clean Canvas for Flawless Makeup

    The foundation for long-lasting makeup starts with a clean face. Wash away any oil, sweat, or leftover products with a gentle cleanser. This creates a smooth base for your makeup to adhere to and prevents meltdowns.

    Priming for Perfection

    Primer is your summer makeup saviour. It creates a barrier between your skin and makeup, controls oil production, and smooths out imperfections for flawless application. Choose a primer suited to your skin type – whether oily, dry, or a combination.

    Long-Wear Formulas Are Your Best Friends

    When shopping for summer cosmetics, prioritize long-wear formulas designed to combat heat and humidity. Opt for waterproof or water-resistant mascaras, eyeliners, foundations, and concealers. These resilient formulas ensure your makeup stays put throughout the day, defying sweat and smudging.

    Setting the Stage for Long-Lasting Beauty

    Once your makeup is applied, lock it in place with a setting spray or translucent powder. Setting sprays create a protective veil that prevents makeup from transferring or fading. For extra oil control and a matte finish, gently dust your face with translucent powder. This extends the wear time of your makeup and reduces shine.

    Blotting Papers: Your Secret Weapon

    Hot weather can lead to increased oil production, causing makeup to break down. Keep oil-absorbing blotting papers handy to combat shine throughout the day. Gently blot your face to remove excess oil without disturbing your makeup, maintaining a fresh, matte look.

    Lightweight is the Way to Go

    Ditch the heavy creams and thick foundations in favor of lightweight, breathable formulas during the summer. These feel more comfortable on your skin and are less likely to melt or slide off in the heat. Look for oil-free moisturizers, serums, and foundations that offer both coverage and hydration without weighing down your skin.

    Sun Protection is Paramount

    While makeup enhances your appearance, prioritize skincare – especially during the summer. Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher as the last step in your skincare routine, even if your makeup contains SPF. Sun protection shields your skin from harmful UV rays, prevents sunburn, delays premature ageing, and ensures your skincare products work effectively.

    Maintaining a summer skincare and makeup routine doesn’t have to be a struggle. By following these tips – priming, choosing long-wear formulas, blotting excess oil, and prioritizing sun protection – you can keep your makeup fresh and your skin glowing all season long. So, flaunt your summer style with confidence, knowing your beauty routine can handle the heat!
