Summer Beauty: 5 Beauty Tips for Your Beach Wedding

Summertime calls for beach trips, and many choose to host their weddings by the sea. Whether you are attending a beach wedding or hosting one, it is important to be prepared! Below are five beauty tips to help you look your best on this special day.

Be Generous with the Sunscreen

Always apply a generous amount of sunscreen to all exposed skin, including your face, neck, chest, and back. Reapply every few hours for optimal protection. Depending on the time of the wedding, you may not have to worry about sunscreen as much, but a good rule of thumb is to try to be as proactive as possible, especially if it is going to be an all-day affair.

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Because of how hot the summertime can be, especially on the beach, it is important for you to drink plenty of water. In addition to enjoying the protection that sunscreen provides, take the time to apply a light moisturizer as well. Your skin will thank you, especially if you have had trouble moisturizing in the past. If you’re worried about your makeup getting greasy, look for moisturizers for oily skin. This can help your skin stay hydrated and matte.

Protect Your Eyes

Always be sure to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. This can be done simply by wearing sunglasses when you are outdoors. If the wedding is going to be an all-day affair, it is a good idea to invest in the right sunglasses to protect your vision. Because of how stylish this option can be, it can also allow you to present in a unique way!

Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to slough off dead skin cells. This will help your skin look radiant on the wedding day. This is especially recommended for beach weddings that are going to be close to the shore, as the extra time in the salt spray can result in excessive weathering on your skin. Make sure you arrive as healthy as possible to avoid extra damage.

Plan for Electrolysis

If you want to look your best at the wedding, it can be a good idea to invest in electrolysis and hair removal services. You can find local services like Hair Today Gone Tomorrow Electrolysis & Med Spa that can provide you with smoother skin for the wedding. No one wants to worry about shaving the night before the wedding, especially with the redness and irritation it can cause your skin.

By following these five tips, you can keep your body from sun damage and stay fresh throughout the event. Make sure to pack extra sunscreen and do the necessary prep beforehand to have the best beach wedding ever.
