7 Tips to help you stay fresh all day

This summer has been extremely hot and humid, so the big question is: How do you stay fresh all day? Today I’m sharing a couple of tips on how to stay fresh throughout your day.

Shower in the morning

I love showering in the morning because it really wakes me up instantly. Use soap or body wash with your favorite fragrance.

Apply lotion

You can get a scent that matches your body wash. Lotion will keep your skin soft and supple throughout the day.

Apply perfume

Dab in key areas like your neck, wrist, behind the knee and under your arms. You can also get a roll-on or travel-sized spray bottle of your favorite perfume so you can bring it with you in your purse or bag.

Stash it in your purse

Always on the run? It's a great idea to buy a travel-size deodorant and carry it with you (or leave it in your car). If you don't have time to wash your hair, use dry shampoo.

Stay hydrated

Always have a water bottle with you and try to drink at least 8 cups of water a day.

All day long beauty

If you want your makeup to last longer, apply a foundation primer and an eyeshadow primer. After you are done with your makeup, mist a setting spray all over your face. If you are feeling a little shiny or oily, use a translucent powder or some oil-absorbing sheets.

Simple tricks

Use white eyeliner on your bottom lashes to make your eyes look bigger and brighter. To look young and fresh, don't forget to apply blush on the apple of your cheeks. At night, never, never, never go to sleep with your makeup on. Use a makeup remover and a night cream.

Finally... remember that your best accessory is your smile.
