5 Tips For Your Skin This 4th of July Weekend
The 4th of July is full of fun and fireworks, and while we are living our best life, we want to make sure our skin is too. Therefore, it's essential to give your skin the attention it needs during this holiday weekend. Below, we're sharing tips regarding how to take care of your skin during the Fourth of July weekend.
Tip #1: Remove Your Makeup
First thing first, removing your makeup! We know the July 4th red lip ritual and adding a pop of highlight are part of this patriotic holiday, and while you may be ready to hop into bed at the end of the night, you don't want to keep the makeup on overnight! Sleeping with makeup can result in your face makeup mixing with oil and debris on your skin, leading to clogged pores and breakouts and experts have also found that sleeping with makeup leads to a breakdown of the skin barrier and prematurely ages the skin.
To make sure you remove your makeup:
Keep your facial wipes in your purse. Have wipes ensure that you have a way to remove your makeup if a makeup remover/cleanser is not available to you. We recommend the Image Skincare I BEAUTY Facial Wipes)
For the weekend, pack your favorite makeup remover. We love Eminence Organic's Stone Crop Cleansing Oil. This non-greasy cleansing oil not only removes what's on your skin's surface, but it removes impurities, and the stone crop ingredient works to brighten the skin to deliver dewy, soft skin after every use. Use alone or as a makeup remover in a two-step cleansing process.
TIP #2: Save Your Skin with SPF
It is the middle of the summer, and chances are you'll be out in the sun watching fireworks or relaxing by the pool barbequing for the weekend. The best thing you can do for your skin is to apply your favorite SPF products. While it's essential to use it all over, you especially want to be taking care of your face. The sun's UV can cause some severe damage, and it can be one of the biggest culprits for early signs of aging. So keep your skin and face protected! (We Recommend: Eminence Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF40 for the face and Eminence Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sports Sunscreen SPF30)
TIP #3: Detox
Between the food you eat, fireworks debris, and the sun. Cleanse your skin of age-accelerating free radicals, UV damage, and clogged pores. Contour and tighten your skin while reducing puffiness with Eminence Organic's Snow Mushroom & Reishi Masque to detox your skin and reduce inflammation to reveal smooth radiance. Purifying clay functions to remove impurities while paracress extract skin cells work to contract, leaving you with a firm, healthy complexion at any age.
TIP #4: Stay Cool with a Mist
The summer sun can be no joke, and sometimes you need the refreshing feeling of a cool facial mist hitting your skin. A facial mist does just that, a mid-day refresh on the skin. Just a cool spritz of the Eminence Lime Refresh Tonique, and the fun continues.
Bonus tip: Place your mist in the refrigerator or outside cooler to achieve the ultimate cooldown.
TIP #5: Stay Hydrated
Dehydration can be the main culprit of acne, chapped lips, dry skin, and bad sunburns. It is easy to get distracted by fabulous cocktails or soda during the holiday weekend. However, it is vital to keep the h20 part of your day. Here are some ways you can incorporate water throughout your fun-filled weekend;
- Start your day with at least 16 ounces of water.
- Check-in and make sure to take a few swigs at least a couple of times throughout the day (you can even purchase one of those accountability water bottles that keep track of how much you've had to drink and how much you still have to go. (add some lemon to your water for additional taste if you need to)
- You can eat your water throughout the day too! Load up on some hydrating, summery fruits and veggies like:
- A cucumber salad
Now that you've got some knowledge on how to take care of your skin this holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July!
