How To Look Good Under The Summer Sun


In one word: Hydrate



If you have any beach plans lined up for the next few weeks, you might want to consider packing a few extra things that will help you look your best. The key to looking radiant under the sun is to keep yourself and your body hydrated. And with a few extra knickknacks, there will be no reason to fret that all-important summer trip.



Opt for waterproof foundation so you know it will last the day despite getting in and out of the water. But it’s equally important to make sure that it has a hydrating feature because the sun is sure to its work on your face. And if you don’t hydrate during the summer, you’ll be feeling its effects long after the season is over. 



Try the MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation (P2,950) to keep your face fresh and minimize sun damages. Finish off your look with the KJM cheek and lip tint in pink for a natural looking finish (P320) and the Maybelline Volum’ Express Hypercurl Waterproof Mascara so you don’t look like you’ve been washed out by the waves (P396).



It’s important to layer up with sunblock, but you don’t want to feel sticky the whole day either. Try Neutrogena Beach Defense Water + Sun Protection Sunscreen, which is SPF 70 (P1,340). You’ll be protected from those harmful UV rays, and you’ll still be feeling clean. And it’s a spray so the reapplication—every two hours!—will be simple and easy. 




Beach waves are gorgeous, but dry hair is not. Use Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo by Moe’s Professionals (P600) to fully nourish, hydrate and restore your hair. That way you’ll be prepared for the day ahead, while healing some of the heat damage from the activities of the day before.




Dress up your updo with a lightweight scarf that can double as a headband. You’ll look cute, but you’ll also be practical (P323). Or if you prefer to keep the sun away from your face altogether, we suggest wearing a straw hat that will provide some shade and some much needed hair ventilation (P397). 



When it comes to clothing, take advantage of the opportunity to show some skin. Rock a sheer top as a beach cover up (P641), or put on a breezy summer dress (P485). You can also be resourceful and cinch an oversized t-shirt at the waist.
