The Best Summer Beauty Hacks for Aussie Girls

The beautiful land down under. A combination of continent and country truly making all Aussies stand out. The fact that this continent/country is an island is another bonus. But the bonus comes with its own conditions on keeping the girls safe especially during the summer time. 

When I say safe, I do not mean reducing crime rates. Safety here is referred to protecting your skin during this season. Enjoying summer is a given, destroying your skin is a sure probability with the harmful sun rays and heat. Yes, you want to get that tan on, but let’s look at some beauty hacks to keep that skin healthy, beautiful and protected: 

  1. Say No to Stress

Make this summer worthwhile by not allowing stress to get in the way. When you are way too stressed out, your immune system is affected making you increasingly susceptible to bacteria. This can cause precious moisture loss, which is vital to keep that radiant face hydrated and free from breakouts. 

  1. Get Sufficient Rest 

By rest here, I mean sleep. Not only does insufficient sleep led to terrible skin conditions, it can cause ugly dark eyes and eye bags (yikes!). In addition to this, a lack of adequate sleep can also cause rapid aging and elevate stress levels. Better rest up this summer, girl! 

  1. Be Smart with Your Skin

Being an Aussie woman already exposes you to heavy doses of the sun and you have to keep your skin ready. Do your research and find the best skincare brands Australia has to offer. Make sure these brands offer products with sunscreen in it. This can assist in decreasing effects of sun exposure and save your time from the usual beauty routine. 

  1. Moisturize 

I mean, have you not read this at least a million times? Moisturizing your skin is essential for optimum protection during the summer. This will not only keep your skin super hydrated; it prevents water loss and could actually have reversed aging effects in the long run. You will look younger as you get older because you opted to moisturize your skin consistently. I mean ladies, who does not want younger looking skin? 

  1. Eat Right 

Eat food that is fit for the season. There are plenty of foods mother-nature has graciously blessed us with, that can help in fighting off negative effects of summer. These foods may help in providing more protection from UV rays and decrease chances of skin cancer. 

For instance, consume more foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as citrus fruits, pomegranates and cherries. Add in some nuts for a snack with green tea along with an occasional meal of Swiss brown mushrooms and salmon to get your sufficient antioxidant intake. 

  1. Utilize Essential Oils 

Using oils is a popular hack used by most Aussie women during the summer. Particularly, coconut oil. Coconut oil is not just your average natural skin moisturizer, it is also a good cleanser and make up remover. Moreover, if you want to avoid those unwarranted breakouts this season, I would suggest tea tree oil, which is known for preventing breakouts and even get rid of existing pimples with just a few drops. 

Get ready for that stunning summer glow once you have followed these beauty hacks!
