Dating Style Tips For A Long, Hot Summer

It’s not often that Brits can enjoy a Mediterranean summer without leaving the country.  So far, 2018 is delivering the kind of lazy, hazy days most of us imagined had been lost with childhood.  It’s a fantastic time to be dating.  With gorgeous sunny days and endless, light nights, getting out and meeting new people feels so much easier.   However, choosing a look that won’t melt in the heat can be tricky.  Here are a few tips to keep you looking effortlessly cool however high the temperature rises:

Keep Make-Up Minimal

Not only does heavy make-up tend to smudge in heat, it can cause skin to breakout.  Why not use a tinted sunblock to both protect your skin and provide light coverage?  We like Garnier Ambre Solaire’s new BB Cream Sun Protection.  It offers Factor 50 protection teamed with beautifying benefits.  Add a dash of tinted lip balm to complete a youthful, summer look.

Fake That Tan

During our 40s, most of us realise that prematurely ageing skin is actually a ‘thing’.  Suddenly, our peers start to fall into two groups – those who protect their skin from the harmful effects of the sun…and those who don’t.  With an array of self tanning options to choose from – most offering soft, moisturised skin to boot – why would anyone instead choose to sizzle like bacon?  If you’re worried about a give-away smell – or streaks – St Tropez now offers a clear, lightweight bronzing ‘water’ with a tropical scent – Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse.   Remember to add a layer of high factor sun protection before heading into the sun and sport the kind of tan usually reserved for those ‘summer-ing’ in the South of France.

Don’t be Afraid of Colour!

With so many gorgeous prints around, allow yourself to be uplifted by a wardrobe popping with colour.  From flowing maxi dresses to crisp, cotton shirts, forget about the blacks and greys of winter and catch every-one’s eye in a feel-good celebration of bold pieces.  We think this floral print dress from Next is just perfect for effortlessly taking a daytime date into evening.
