HOW TO Jerseylicious Summer Beauty
Condition The sun makes your hair dry and dead. So while you're laying out, put in some leave-in conditioner or use a treatment in your hair to prevent damage.
A tan is a must have! But no tan is worth ruining your skin. Make sure you throw on sunscreen even if it's a low number sunscreen like 4! Just don't put baby oil on!
Get yourself a maxi dress It can come in handy as a cover up for your bathing suit or could be cute for dinner right from the beach/pool.
Summer is great for hats Either a big floppy hat to block the sun or a cute straw fedora to match your sundress.
Skip the color Makeup isn't necessary for the beach, but a bare face isn't right either. So put on some mascara on you top and bottom lashes. It will brighten up your eyes! You never know when you'll run into a cutie on the beach!
