HIGH-VIS: Summer Beauty

About This Project

Skin is at maximum exposure in the summer months. Makeup artist Victoria Martin gives us a little rundown of some of her essential hot weather tips – using products by Khiels.

Take care of your skin and hair this summer by using products to protect and hydrate.

For a lightweight alternative to foundation that will protect your skin against the harmful rays of the sun try Kiehl’s Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream ($38). It helps to blur imperfections and hydrate the skin whilst also giving you the benefit of a broad spectrumSPF30 PA+++. Apply with fingertips to all areas of the face.

It’s important to give your lips some sun protection as well, Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 ($12) is a favourite with an SPF4 and it will immediately provide comfort for dehydrated lips. You could then apply your favourite lipstick or lip gloss over the top for a little freshness.

Don’t forget to treat your hair after spending a day in the ocean or the pool, particularly if you have coloured hair. Use Kiehl’s Sunflower Colour Preserving Deep Recovery Pak ($40) after you have washed and towel dried your hair. Comb the treatment through and let it work for 3 minutes or more. Rinse it out and let your hair dry naturally for healthy radiance.

Rather than tanning and causing irreversible damage to your skin, use a self tanner to get that golden glow you desire. Kiehl’s Sun Free Tanning Formula develops in 1 hour and is suitable for the face and body. I love it’s non-greasy and lightweight texture which leaves skin feeling supple and hydrated.
