Target skin problems
If you have problem skin, and you’re desperate to look your best for summer, now is the time to act. Step up your skincare regime and visit your doctor if you have persistent issues. If you suffer from acne, for example, there are therapies out there that can have amazing effects. Doctors and dermatologists can prescribe medications. You could also try remedies such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

Take five minutes each day to cleanse and moisturize your skin. Choose products, which suit your skin type. If you’re not sure what to buy, consult a skin care expert for advice or read some reviews online.
Invest in the right cosmetics
In the winter months, we tend to use more makeup and opt for more dramatic looks. In the summer, it’s all about daring to bare and going for a more natural finish.
To achieve celebrity-style dewy skin, you’ll need primer, foundation, and concealer. To give your skin a fresh look, go for liquid foundation and layer small amounts. Prime your skin first and then cover any blemishes or redness with a dab of concealer. Use a brush or your fingers to apply your foundation. Blend with a damp beauty blending sponge for a perfect finish.
Once you’ve laid the foundations, lift your skin and define your features with highlighter and bronzer. Use a kabuki brush to add a golden glow to your cheeks and temples. Add a few dots of highlighter to the brow bones, cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. Finish off with a clear or nude gloss and some mascara. If you’re going out for a meal or to a bar, simply add some color on the lip or go for bolder eye makeup.
Drink lots of water
No amount of makeup will make your skin look bright and clear if you’re dehydrated. Make sure you drink enough water. If you haven’t had enough to drink, you may suffer from headaches, lethargy and dull and dry skin. Keep a bottle of water in your bag and don’t rely on coffee to power you through the day. If you’re exercising, it’s hot outside, or you’ve been drinking alcohol, increase your intake of water.
You may think that exercise is bad for your skin because it makes you sweat, but it’s actually really beneficial for your complexion. Working out boosts blood circulation, which ensures that valuable nutrients reach the surface of the skin.
