I admit that perhaps the reason this summer feels like the fifth level of hell compared to other summers is probably because I’m almost eight months pregnant.
Still, it is HOT, so I am definitely keeping my beauty routine to a minimum right now. In fact, I’m having a little trouble bending over to shave my legs as frequently as I usually would … so, there’s that.
But there are a few products I’m relying on to help keep myself cool and hopefully looking presentable despite the current weather and my current condition.
One of those is, without a doubt, dry shampoo. My hair is fairly fine, so I used to think not washing my hair every day was out of the question. But I’m training myself, and my hair, to skip at least one wash day, and the extremely affordable Suave Dry Shampoo is hands-down my favorite way to combat any oil buildup. Plus, I get to avoid being under the hot blow dryer when it’s also as hot as the sun outside.
This new-to-me Dove Dry Spray is THE ISH. I still use deodorant under my arms, but I spray this in other hot spots, and it’s even done well as a chub-rub deflector when wearing dresses.
I’m a lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick addict. I usually carry anywhere from three to 10 in my purse so I can choose what I want, when I want. I was a little disappointed when the glossy style of Baby Lips seemed to disappear from the stores. But the Color Balm Crayon, which is more lipstick-y than lip-gloss-y, is really nice, too. I chose this cutesy strawberry pop pink for spring/summer.
This lotion is an oldie but a goodie, and I’m glad Bath & Body Works brought it back because I’ve always loved the fresh, fruity scent. I wear this in the summer instead of perfume most days and I can’t get enough!
What is your beauty routine like in the summer? Do you keep things easier or still wear the same makeup or hair products?
