Do you wear makeup to the beach or to the pool? Is it ok to even wear makeup in the water? These are all questions I’ve asked myself. When I know I’m going to actively swim and get myself wet from head to toe, no I don’t wear makeup. Why? Because who wants to worry about if their makeup coming off or if their eyes are running? BUT I do always wear sunscreen! I’ve been a fan of this sunscreen from Peter Thomas Roth for years, and it’s what I use daily.
If you feel conscious about showing your bare skin in public (lets be honest, we all have some under eye bags we would like to cover), I have two easy diversions, sunglasses and a hat! These items will not only distract, but also protect against the sun! I always have a relatively cheap pair of sunglasses that I use for instances like this where I wont be upset if they get wet or damaged. So before you go out and research waterproof makeup, try going bare and slip on a pair of sunglasses and a hat! Problem solved!
