A beach vacation can seem to do wonders for your skin and hair, giving you a natural beachy look. But, in reality, the intense heat of the sun ends up doing more damage than good. Luckily for you, OROGOLD reviews some easy and simple ways to achieve a luxe, beachy look, without having to spend weeks lying out in the sun.
Saltwater adds texture and volume to hair, making it naturally wavy and bouncy. To get this look without travelling to a beach, you can purchase a salt spray, which works on every hair type. Look for one that has added minerals, and a healthy oil, such as argan oil, to give your hair some shine, keeping it from looking dull. Use it sparingly on damp hair, scrunching up the ends of your hair as you spray. Let it dry naturally and then take a look at the result. Often, this can be enough to give you natural waves, but if you want to enhance them even more, you can use a curling iron to add even more texture. A tropical flower hair pin attached to the side of your hair is a great finishing touch to this look. When it comes to washing your hair, try to find a shampoo that has seaweed extracts, as this is brilliant for the health of your hair, retaining moisture and leaving it soft and easy to manage.
Before applying any product to your skin, it is important that you properly exfoliate. An exfoliator that contains both coarse and fine sea salt will help to invigorate your skin, taking away all of the dead cells and excess oil, giving you a good base to work with. Next, apply a tinted moisturizer to your face. This will quench your skin whilst giving it a hint of color and evening out your skin tone at the same time. A good bronzer is a necessity, as this will give you a sun-kissed glow, define your features and contour your face. Focus on the areas that would have been most likely to have been ‘kissed’ by the sun, such as your forehead, nose and cheeks. If you want to use a shade of blush on top of this, opt for a coral or pink shade, rather than a darker color, as this will give you a rosy glow without looking too overdone.
A Juicy Pout
Whether or not you’ve been to the beach, the heat of the summer sun can make your lips extremely hard to care for. A lip gloss that has moisturizer and maximizer built in is the best product to take care of your lips, saving them from becoming dry and cracked. Choose a color that is light and soft, such as a peach or a coral, as you only want a hint of color, to keep you looking laid-back and beachy.
One of the best things about the beachy look is that it suits every skin tone, since it enhances and defines your natural features rather than altering them. These simple tips will help you to keep your luxe, beachy look lasting all summer, ensuring that you are never caught without beautiful sun-kissed skin and gorgeous wavy curls.
