Most of us have at least one summer party that helps to make our summer. For some of us, that is the party that we put on. Putting all that effort and planning into creating the perfect celebration of summer can take a lot out of anyone. Figuring out what you’re serving and then working on inviting people while making sure there is enough food is an undertaking all on its own. This problem escalates with the number of people coming over for that summer bash. Planning where everyone is going to sit, what the entertaining area is, and overall deciding what areas of a place will be open to guests is yet another set of tasks to overcome. All of these are just about getting the party going smoothly too. Many of us are also worried about ensuring that we’re looking our summer best for the party so that we look good and feel confident the whole time. That requires a little bit of prep too. Let’s take a quick look at the best ways to prepare both your schedule and your skin for throwing a summer party.
There’s one factor you need to always consider when trying to keep your skin happy and healthy during summer: sunscreen. You’ll want to make sure that you’re using it every day and remembering to reapply to keep your skin healthy. Taking this preventive measure will go a long way towards ensuring that your skin is ready for anything else that you choose to do to prepare it later. This will also help minimize the chances of there being any lingering sun damage disrupting your perfect look during the summer party. In the event that you have already experienced sunburn, remember that aloe vera and regularly moisturizing your skin will help you reduce the healing time for the damage. This boosted recovery will get your skin back to a state where it can accept other treatments to help it. Remembering to keep all of this in mind does take a little bit of effort, but making it will protect your skin for both the party and a long time to come.
This tends to be the biggest issue for a lot of us. Adult life means sacrificing the glories of youthful summer breaks and having to deal with the realities of being gainfully employed. The good news is that there tends to still be a pattern we can use to gauge availability. A lot of people have time off around major holidays or can arrange to leave early around then. That’s why it works so well to schedule summer parties around things like the 4th of July. Admittedly, you can find other times to set a party if you communicate well with your intended guests. Negotiating a good day for it can be as simple as figuring out when you all have gaps in your schedules. Weekends are good for this and are often your best chance if you intend to host a long party. An evening or nighttime party can be viable on a weekday as well if everyone has the energy. Figuring out how to balance all of this should give you a clear idea of when holding your party will work.
Ensuring your skin looks its best for a party can mean varying things depending on your particular skin type. A good universal choice for anyone is to get a facial or two in the month leading up to a party to give your skin an extra boost to its overall clarity and restore a natural glow. Your skin will also be a little bit more resilient thanks to the nourishment from a facial and thereby be that much more resistant to the effects of sun exposure if you’re holding the party during the day. If you’re holding a particular formal party, you may want to consider a microdermabrasion session a week to a week and a half out from the actual party as well. This will leave your skin looking and feeling smooth and beautiful. Beyond these tips, ensure that you’re cleansing and moisturizing your face regularly during the lead up to the party. Your skin will thank you and be all the healthier by the time the party arrives.
Making all of the arrangements for a summer party can be a little bit hectic. Scheduling the actual party tends to be the most chaotic element though given all the factors one must juggle. Once you’ve decided on that, you’ll be able to pin down a time for any skin treatments you want to have in preparation. Then all you have to worry about are the more mundane details and all that that will demand of you. Despite the chaos, making the effort will let you feel confident that both you and your party are the best they could be when the date finally rolls around.
