Oh, Memorial Day, the perfect fusion of gratitude, loved ones, and a grand summer kick-off! Amidst the festivities, it's important to prioritize self-care— especially when it comes to sun protection and skincare! Because let's face it, nothing says "I'm here to slay summer" like a safe, sun-kissed glow, a glowing complexion, and gorgeously full lashes. So, grab your sunscreen and sparklers because this week, we're sharing our top tips for unforgettable memorial day beauty!
Nurture Your Skin with a Refreshing Skincare Routine
During the summer months, your skin requires extra care and attention. The sun's rays can be harsh, causing dryness, sunburn, and premature aging. Incorporate a hydrating and nourishing skincare routine into your Memorial Day preparations to keep your skin looking radiant and healthy. Cleanse your face daily with a gentle cleanser, such as Bella Aura's Gentle Purifying Cleanser. This ultra-gentle cleanser deeply cleans while replenishing the skin's natural moisture barrier. Follow with a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer, like Bella Aura's Daily Repair Moisturizer, to replenish skin's hydration without clogging pores. This revitalizing skincare product contains a powerful blend of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids to dramatically transform parched skin and balance your skin's pH levels. If your skin type is extremely dry (or you need an extra boost this summer!), we recommend topping up with Hydra Revive Treatment from Bella Aura. This essential oil-free serum effectively hydrates, replenishes, soothes, and balances even the most sensitive skin. Don't forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated from within!
Non-Negotiable Sun Protection
As Memorial Day ushers in the glorious summer sun, it's the ideal time to highlight the importance of everyday sun protection—And if your skincare routine happens to include any retinoids or AHA/BHA exfoliators, shielding your skin from those harmful UV rays becomes even more crucial. These powerful ingredients can work wonders for your skin, but they also make it more susceptible to sun damage. To protect your skin, apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to all exposed areas of your body, including your face, neck, and hands. Reapply regularly, especially after swimming or sweating, to ensure continuous protection—your future self will thank you for it!

This summer, say goodbye to the hassle of applying mascara! Lash extensions offer a long-lasting solution for fluttery, voluminous lashes that take you from the beach to the bar and everywhere in between!

Enjoy Gorgeous Lashes All Summer
To ensure the longevity and beauty of your lash extensions, it's crucial to provide them with proper care. Avoid excessive exposure to water for the first 24 hours after application to allow the adhesive to set properly. In addition, be sure to avoid using oil-based skincare products, such as cleansers and moisturizers, on your lash extensions. Oil can wreak havoc on your lash's adhesive bond, causing them to degrade and shed prematurely. Keep your lashes clean and free from bacteria and debris by cleansing twice daily with Avari Beauty's All-In-One Bamboo Charcoal Cleanser. This ultra-gentle and effective cleanser is packed full of moisturizing ingredients, plus it's safe for lash extensions—win-win! You should also brush your lashes daily with a clean spoolie brush to keep them looking neat and tidy and remember to schedule regular maintenance appointments to keep your lash extensions in pristine condition all summer long.
