It`s still spring - but summer is right around the corner. And, if part of your plan is to hit the beach or vacation this summer ...Looking our best can be expensive.
For some tips, Jennifer Lewis-Hall spoke with self magazine`s beauty director - Elaine D` Farley.
Good Morning Elaine. The summer season officially kicks off this month. Everybody wants to look great. Where do we get started?
It's summer. It's all about effortless beauty for the summer. The trends are really all about simple, easy looks that are easy to wear and easy to put on and take off. And hair color is really where it all starts.
You really want your hair to look sparkly and multidimensional and have great tone, but who wants to stay in the salon all day and spend all that money on that? So there's a great new at home kit from Vidal Sassoon called the Vidal Sassoon Salonist Permanent At Home Hair Color Kit. It's a two step process. It's really innovative. It's revolutionary. It's got like a brush and a bowl just like they do at the salon. So you get to play with it, and you get to mix it up yourself. You can apply the color to your roots where you need the most saturation, and then you add in the special serum formula. And you mix it all together, and you take that through the length of your hair, and it's really going to give your hair that tonality and vibrant shine that you really want that's going to look really rich and luxurious and like you just spent all day at the salon but you didn't. And it's only thirteen ninety-nine. It's available at Rite Aid and at drugstore.com, so it's really easy to find.
And then the second part of your routine is your skincare. You really want to protect your skin from the sun. It's your first defense against aging and having glowing skin. So you want to really get a great sunscreen.
One that I love is called La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Melt-In Sunscreen Milk. What's great about it is that it has an advanced broad spectrum sunscreen protection built into it that's called the Cellox-Shield XL antioxidant technology. What's great about that is that it protects your skin against oxidation, which is another ager. So you're going to get two-in-one. You're going to get the sunscreen protection, but your also going to get antioxidant protection. So it's really like skincare in a bottle with sunscreen, and its thirty-five ninety-nine so it's really well worth it. And you can really use it like a primer. You put it on. It's really fast absorbing. It's got this velvety texture, so it leaves your skin feeling really smooth. And then you just add in a little concealer, a little foundation, a pop of color on your lips, and you are good to go and have fun this summer.
Alright will do Elaine. Thanks so much, easy and affordable. Eye Opener continues.
