Summer is the time when you have to take special care of your beauty. Sea/pool water and too much time spent on sun can seriously damage your hair and skin, but proper care can make you shine naturally. The same rules apply to makeup and wardrobe. Perfect make-up can easily melt away so why don't you show your natural beauty? There are many tricks that are helpful for looking good in summer. Although only a few weeks of summer are still in front of us, these beauty tips will help you look great and restore damage of improper body care.

If you start your day by putting on a thick layer of makeup, abandon this habit for summer days. Use as little makeup as possible, because even if you use much of it, it will melt away. Skin pores can get blocked easily by sweat and dusts and other dirt during hot days and a layer of make-up makes it only worse. Let your skin breathe!

Make up helps us to highlight our beauty and hide imperfections; there's no need to put all the make-up means away while it's summer. However, make-up foundation is one thing that you should forget till the autumn comes. If you can't live without it, replace it with tinted moisturizer. It is capable of hiding small skin flaws, but it is much lighter than a foundation and it doesn't feel like something stuck on your face.

Dare to wear bold make-up colors, but keep those light: dark dramatic eye makeup may look like black eye if you choose a wrong occasion to wear it. However, your fingernails and especially toenails are different talk! Choose juicy colored nail polish and stun everyone! Remember to take care of your feet and hands before putting the nail polish on. Well groomed nails with fun color manicure and pedicure attract the attention easily while untidy nails attract attention as well but not in a way you should be cheerful about.

Waterproof cosmetics are great salvation for summer make up. This doesn't mean you have to pack your regular cosmetics and put it away till the summer ends, but if you're buying new makeup means, think waterproof. Waterproof cosmetics should be your best friend for hot weather; especially if you're into dark colors. Otherwise you may look like a raccoon when great makeup smudges around your eyes. Choose bronzer for evening and blush anytime to create an image of sun-kissed cheeks.

Your skin needs special care as well. Natural tan is trendy and looks appealing, but think of your health before you think about trends. There are ways to get a tan without damaging skin cells and causing cancer. You should find the happy medium between avoiding sunlight and damaging skin. Even if you're not interested in getting tan, skin is more exposed to sun on summer than it is on other seasons of the year. That's why summer skin care requires moisturizing skin even more! Don't forget to change your lotion to the one that has sunscreen properties: it prevents permanent damage, sun burn and it helps to keep a tan for longer period of time. If you choose self-tanner for the hot summer look, don't overdo with using it - orange-yellow tan is not trendy.

Hair usually suffers from too much heat, sea water or chlorinated pool water. The worst thing that could happen to them is blow-drying after all this damage. Let your hair dry naturally; you will see the results pretty soon as they will break less and shine more. Do a deep conditioning periodically to avoid the image of dull fried hair. Avoid the up-dos that make your hair to fall on your neck and around your face. Messy sweaty hair that sticks on face may look sexy in advertisements on magazine, but it looks just messy in reality.

Summer is a great season for changes. It the time to smile and shine! And it's a perfect time to enjoy new look of your hair. Consider changing your hair color to two tones lighter or getting blonde highlights: it suits everyone. More importantly it compliments tan skin and blush on cheeks! Of course, blonde hair color doesn't fit every person, but coloring hair with a tone just few shades lighter than the natural tone gives the lovely sun-kissed hair image.
