A Beauty Do and Don’t Interview with my Tween and Giveaway

Giveaway Ended

It is 105 today in Richmond, and while going to the pool is an option, my daughter and I decided to stay in the air conditioning and have a summer beauty heart-to-heart.

We decided to document this in an interview style so she can come back to this for reference and comparison in years to come. I am sure both of our opinions on do’s and don’ts will change dramatically. Her questions are marked in purple!
Best Fashion tips at the beaches:†While I do not go shopping each year for a new supply of swimwear I do find it important to have two good fitting suits that you can interchange to create different looks. †Also, If you have hair long enough to fit in a pony tail, do so, otherwise you will have fly-away unmanageable hair by the end of the day. †Also try to keep your toes nicely pedicured!

Would you rather have a Bikini or Tankini and why?

That is a great question and it really depends on what I am doing that day. If I plan on being in the water with your brothers or doing water sports, a Tankini is preferable. †Don’t want to have a wardrobe foul while at the beach. †When traveling with Dad, I like the idea of a bikini and remembering my younger days!! Wear them while you can is my attitude!

Would you rather hang out at the pool or beach?
This is a tough answer. Since we don’t have a beach we can visit regularly, I do enjoy spending time there when given the opportunity. †Bring some baby powder to get that stubborn sand off you though! Enjoy a nice cushioned seat at the pool for a break while at the beach!

What are some healthy ways of staying cool while staying pretty?
Stay hydrated while at the pool or beach. If you have access to cool water and a small towel, dampen the towel and wrap around your neck to cool off. †Also stay under an umbrella and protect that young face of yours as much as you can, you will thank me later. I used to put baby oil on my face and body, check out these brown spots!
Try not to bury yourself in the beach to stay cool, leave that to the boys.

What products do you use to stay hair-free and pretty at the beach? 

This is a great question and I’m glad you are asking me at a young age. It is so important to have a quality razor like Venus Embrace†that will help you avoid cutting your legs and leaving scars. †It has a soft grip handle for great control which is very helpful, especially as you learn to shave. †With interchangeable razor blade refills, these are much better than the disposable razors I grew up with.
Please don’t use soap and water or shampoo, something I did when I started shaving. You can go use my†Satin Care Passionista Fruit Shave Gel to help provide a smooth shaving surface! †Great fruity smell too! Venus has some great tips for moms of first-time shavers over here.

Now here is a beauty tip for my readers.
