Cool Makeup Tips During Summer

Post by ANJANI TETLI on Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:59 am

The kiss of summer bestows nature's shining secret to your face as
long as you do not let it dry your skin and cause those tiny summer
wrinkles to appear. Try some of the suggestions given below to revive
and to sustain the natural beauty of your complexion and to add that
cool, clear appearance, which is the main asset of a summer complexion.

the hot summer months your complexion needs extra care at night in
order to counteract the drying effects of the sun and the wind during
the day
. Particularly, if you are above 25 you should
regularly use a moisturizing cream at bedtime. Apply this cream daily
in the night if you want to cherish the youthful loveliness of a
flawless complexion.

To make your own moisturizing cream take four almonds and soak them in enough milk to cover them.
Let them remain thus for a whole night, next morning peel and grind
them to a smooth paste. Now mix in two tablespoons of milk cream and a
few drops of essence of rose. Store in a bottle and keep it in the

As the temperature rises in the hot months, extra cleaning is necessary for those of you who have greasy complexion. Bathe your face four to five times daily with clear water and a good soap suited to your complexion.
This will help cleanse the openings of grease glands and loosen excess
secretion. Rinse off every trace of soap with plenty of hot, then cold
water. Cold water constricts the pores and minimizes the entrance of
dust and dirt into the oil glands. Now splash an astringent lotion on
the face. In a bowl of chilled water squeeze in a juice of a sour lime.
Pat dry. Remember to cleanse the skin thoroughly with milk cream
blended into a thin paste with gram flour. Steam the face once every week in order to open clogged pores.

big problem of summer is excessive perspiration and body odour.
Excessive perspiration usually occurs on the palms, soles, under the
breast, forehead and scalp. It is often accompanied by offensive body
odour which is largely due to the decomposition of sweat and
contamination with micro-organisms. Under unclean circumstances,
micro-organisms flourish giving rise to unsightly boils. Therefore, if
you suffer from foul­smelling perspiration, you should pay special
attention to your personal cleanliness. You should take bath twice
daily with soap and plenty of water. Certain areas of the body
(where perspiration is excessive) should be dusted liberally with boric
powder mixed with an equal quantity of a good-scented talcum powder
If your feet perspire profusely then use salicylic powder on them or
you can soak them for 15 minutes in a dilute solution of potassium
permanganate in order to prevent infection and minimise 'body odour.
Refrain from wearing nylon or woollen socks. Wear cotton socks and
shoes which have no rubber soles on them. To check pespiration of the
hands wash them well, dry them, then rub them with a few drops of

Infants and toddlers should be bathed in
the afternoon in water to which a few drops of Cologne have been added.
Dust their bodies libearlly with equal quantity of scented powder and
boric powder. For top-to-toe freshness pay proper attention to your hair. It is important that you should wash your hair at least twice a week.
Freshen your hair in between by sprinkling some eau de Cologne before
setti ng them. Revive tired eyes by wrapping crushed pieces of ice in a
piece of cloth and applying it to closed eyelids. Then relax for 10
minutes in a dark room. You can use cucumber slices instead of ice

Ensure that feeling of freshness by keeping
yourself and all your personal belongings, scrupulously clean. Your
dresses and other clothes should be starched and well-pressed for a
neat appearance. Keep pads soaked in cologne between your clothes and
they will exude a lovely fragrance. When ironing your clothes, place a
pad of cotton soaked- in either Cologne rose water or your favourite
perfume by your side and run the pad on your clothes before ironing.
Your pleasantly fragant clothes will make you feel cool and
garden-fresh. Do away with all your nylons, georgettes and heavy silks
and bring out the soft wispy chanderies, cool violes, crisp organdies
and light cotton dresses in the softest of shades. Avoid wearing too
many accessories.

During this season your makeup should
be reduced to the minimum and the accent should be on naturalness.
Avoid using foundation creams and lotions of any sort because heat may
cause them 'running down' your face. Use a lipstick of pastel shade and use rouge sparingly. Finish your makeup with a light puff of powder.

extravagant with flowers. Use plenty of them in your hair. You can also
tuck a few flowers of mogra in your bra for their heavenly smell. Spray
on your favourite perfume and now if you go out you will feel as
pleasantly fresh and cool as though you were atop a hill station in the
summer season.
