10 Quick Fashion Tips to Stay Cool This Summer
Summer’s upon us, and we all know what that means – sweating, sunburns, frizzy hair, and more sweating. Understandably, fashion takes a back seat for most people, when it comes to dealing with this brutal heat.
That’s unfortunate, because you don’t have to give up on looking good just because the sun is being a real pain. All you need are a few good tips and tricks so you can stay your trendy, fashionable self, while also being equipped to deal with the weather. (And no, we aren’t talking about bikinis 24/7 either).
Read on to find our quick fashion tips to stay cool this summer – literally and figuratively.
1. Lather It Up
Hanging out at the beach, backyard parties, and pool days are a must on your summer fun checklist, but make sure you’re well equipped to deal with all that UV! Before heading out for a day of fun in the sun, make sure to lather up well with sunscreen, or you could risk getting sun burnt!
2. Sun-Appropriate Makeup
The last thing you want when you’re out and about during a hot summer’s day is your literal face to melt off. OK, skipping the dramatics, you know the possibility of your makeup melting off is very real. That’s why it’s important to take precautionary measures before heading out. It’s also a good idea to switch your makeup products; so go for foundation/creams that come with sun protection and SPF already in them.
Another handy tip to keep the makeup you carry around in your bag from melting is to freeze it in a zip lock the night before.
3. Loosen Up
Believe it or not, showing more skin does not equal feeling cooler. In fact, the more skin you have exposed, the higher the risk of getting sun burnt is. Also, clothes that stick to your skin will encourage you to sweat, which is definitely not something you want! Instead, switch to loose-fitting clothes. Not only will they protect against UV rays, they will also keep you feeling cool as there’s enough room for air to flow through.
