Smart Cover is sharing the top 5 summer beauty foods! Keep yourself healthy and gorgeous from the inside out, while enjoying these summer treats!

Top 5 Summer Beauty Foods

Watermelon

You may not know the word “lycopene” off the top of your head, but surely you’re familiar with its benefits. It’s a powerful antioxidant that provides sun protection and promotes heart health. Also, as the name implies, watermelon is very hydrating. Hydration is essential to youthful, supple skin. A big slice of watermelon is perfect on a hot day, so enjoy!

Greek Yogurt

Cosmopolitan.com’s Korin Miller notes that Greek yogurt is a protein-rich way to start the day. It’s also a cool treat, if you don’t feel like bacon and eggs on a warm summer morning. In terms of beauty benefits, Greek yogurt is “packed with amino acids” that help lessen the appearance of dark under-eye circles. And the Smart Cover Stick can cover up those dark circles completely!

Oysters

While you’re dancing it up at all those summer weddings, don’t forget to stop off at the seafood buffet! Oysters are filled with zinc, which help prevent acne.

Salmon

As long as we’re talking about delicious seafood, grilled salmon is an excellent source of Omega-3 fats, which “can help keep your skin healthy, preventing premature aging and safeguarding against sun damage,” according to Healthline.com.

Iced Tea

The last of our top 5 summer beauty foods is iced tea. Foodnetwork.com touts its health benefits: “Both green and black tea pack serious amounts of disease-fighting antioxidants, but green tea has the added bonus of offering a small amount of sun protection to your skin.” They advise brewing it yourself so you can limit the sugar content.

Enjoy these top 5 summer beauty foods while you cover what you want to cover with Smart Cover’s signature concealers. This will be an unforgettable summer!

 

 

Get A New Foundation Shade for Summer!

Do you need a new foundation shade for summer? In terms of skin tone, some people look exactly the same year-round. This can be true if you’re extra-careful about avoiding the sun, for example. However, even using sunblock every time you go outside doesn’t guarantee that there won’t be a minor change in your skin tone from winter to summer.

“[D]espite your best efforts to slather on the SPF and stay out of the sun, there’s a good chance your face will be slightly darker in July than it was in January. You’ll want to choose a shade that enhances your sun-kissed skin rather than make it look pasty,” advises Health.com beauty writer Lisa De Santis.

That’s why Smart Cover’s makeup kits are so ideal. The Deluxe 10-Piece Starter Kit comes with three shades of the Concealing Crème. With the Light kit you get Light, Medium and Dark Beige. With the Dark Kit you get Golden Tan, Dark Beige and Deep Beige.

Remember, you can blend shades to find your perfect match. Just squeeze a little of each (about a dime-sized drop) into the palm of your hand and mix them together with your finger. Then apply. This video can help you find your shade.

Byrdie.com‘s Kaitlyn Mclintock has some suggestions for summer lip shades. If you have a deep complexion, your options are virtually boundless. Everything from hot pink to reds with hints of orange or even purple will be gorgeous on you. For medium to olive tones, think orange and sheer corals.

If you have a light complexion, this year is all about coral pinks or even just shiny glosses with a hint of pink, like Smart Cover’s Two-in-One Glowstick. Once you have the right foundation shade for summer, and a fun new lipstick, the summer is yours to enjoy!
