8 Best Summer Beauty Tips for Women to Look & Feel Amazing This Season
There are many summer beauty tips that you can follow so that your hair, skin, and body always look amazing. To name a few:
- Find your skin’s undertones
- Try a weekly face scrub
- Wear more sunscreen
- Drink more water
- Protect your hair from chlorine
- Reduce you sugar intake
- Upgrade your summer wardrobe
- Avoid dangerous fad diets
Now let’s go into each of these, one by one.
1. Find Your Skin’s Undertone
You might fall in love with some new clothes or jewelry, but they don’t make you feel as confident as you’d like. That piece of clothing might not work with the undertones in your skin.
A person’s skin tone is a mix of many colors, so specific shades may make you appear more washed out than others. Look into the various skin tones to determine if you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones. You’ll pick flattering outfits and clothing colors more easily and show off your natural beauty.
2. Try a Weekly Face Scrub
Your face may also become flakier after healing from sunburns or spending time in a chlorine pool. Investing in a face scrub is one of the simple ways to embrace your natural beauty this summer. You can use it daily or weekly to exfoliate dead skin cells and help your skin stay radiant.
If you want to go all out, take a whole day to pamper yourself. You can either decide to create a whole spa experience at home, or go for the pros. Take a bubble bath, put on a face mask, and try out some new hair goods or even luxurious skin products.
This spa day will be great for both your physical and mental health.
3. Wear More Sunscreen
Applying sunscreen every day is always a good idea during the summer and you should always have SPF 50 sunscreen inside your summer beach beauty bag. Even if you’re not going to the beach or spending a few hours in your backyard, you’ll still get sun exposure that’s more intense due to the summer heat.
You could apply traditional sunscreen before starting your day or wear a facial lotion with SPF protection.
A product with an SPF rating of 30 will block out the most ultraviolet (UV) rays, so you don’t need to purchase expensive products of SPF 50 or higher to get adequate skin protection.
4. Drink More Water
Staying hydrated is another way to embrace your natural beauty. Your skin will be dry and uncomfortable if you’re not drinking enough water to keep your cells healthy.
Remain hydrated by consuming more water, making homemade ice pops and eating water-based vegetables like cucumbers and your skin will glow.
5. Protect Your Hair From Chlorine
Swimming in your favorite pool is a fun summer activity, but it can damage your hair. It’s challenging to feel confident about yourself if your hair has constant breakage, feels fried or becomes discolored.
You could always wear a swim cap, but that’s not everyone’s style. If you’d rather let your hair flow loosely in the water, use a chlorine removal shampoo as soon as you finish swimming. The shampoo has ingredients that remove chlorine deposits on hair strands and moisturize your scalp to prevent damage.

6. Reduce Your Sugar Intake
Go out for ice cream with your friends and sip cool sodas on the beach. Enjoy those sugary treats, but avoid consuming them all the time if you want to embrace your natural beauty.
Research shows that sugar spikes your insulin, which binds to collagen in skin cells and breaks them down from the inside. Eating more sugar leads to breakouts, so limit your intake to reasonable amounts if you want to feel more confident about your skin.
7. Upgrade Your Summer Wardrobe
When was the last time you updated your wardrobe?
Summer is the perfect time to showcase your natural beauty. Try on different outfit styles to see what’s most flattering. You might discover high-waisted shorts or short summer dresses that you wouldn’t have tried on otherwise.
Even a simple wardrobe addition like a wide-brimmed straw hat will make you appreciate your appearance even more. If you need help, this post goes over all the summer packing essentials so that you never forget anything important during your next summer travel.
8. Avoid Dangerous Fad Diets
Beauty and health brands often advertise products to help consumers prepare for bikini season. Although it’s fine to lose weight with the help of your doctor, you won’t enhance your beauty by using products that aren’t healthy.
Look for red flags in the marketing materials for summer diet programs, supplements or health products, such as:
- Daily calorie limits below 1,200-1,500
- Incredible weight loss with a quick turnaround time, such as more than one or two pounds per week
- Restricted foods like whole grains, fats or fruits
- Buzz words like “cleanse,” “detox” and “fasting”
- A lack of specific research you can read in peer-reviewed journals to verify the product’s effectiveness
The best way to succeed with an eating plan is by talking with your doctor. They’ll help you determine a healthy way forward or if you would best benefit from another change in your routine.
