Summer is here and so is summer fashion! With many new trends and colors there are so many ways to accessorize for everyone’s favorite season. However, one of the best accessories we can sport in the summer is clear, glowing skin. And not just on our faces. Unsightly scars, bruises and bumps on our arms and legs can draw attention to the wrong places. So what to do when your summer outfit shows a little skin and you have something you’d rather hide? Body cover ups are an easy and effective way to even out skin anywhere. Models use them to cover scars and tattoos and they are a favorite for famous brides who may cover tattoos or marks on their big day. But you don’t need an editor to airbrush your photo or a make-up artist to give yourself a completely flawless look anywhere.

Boo-Boo Cover-Up is an innovative concealer with many natural ingredients designed to heal all sorts of unsightly boo-boo’s. For eczema or acne it has Aloe and Chamomile. Both help to moisturize dry skin and calm irritation. Aloe also helps with burns and speeds cell renewal. Additionally, Chamomile fights infection as it is a natural anti-septic. Another anti-septic and anti-bacterial is Tea Tree Oil which will help with bug bites or wounds. Boo-Boo Cover-Up also contains Green Tea and Vitamin E and can cover and help treat other issues like sunburn or Keratosis Pilaris.
MAKE UP FOREVER Face and Body Liquid Makeup is a lightweight, waterproof formula that is ideal for the pool or beach.

It comes in a variety of colors in a convenient pump dispenser and is definitely professional grade make-up.
If you have any permanent marks on your body you’d like to hide, a great brand to check out is Dermablend. They have a variety of products including stick concealers, body creams and full cover foundations. Dermablend products do tend to have a heavier texture- but they do their job. If it’s an all-day outdoor event or a photo-shoot Dermablend is going to stay on and cover all day. It’s also very gentle and can be used on even the newest of scars.
Covering tattoos can be one of the hardest things to do. Highly pigmented and below the skins surface, foundations made for evening out your skin tone on the face usually aren’t up for the challenge. Kat Von D makes a tattoo concealer that is amazing for tattoos and comes in a number of shades for a natural look. It also works great on stubborn under eye circles. It’s a great mult-itasker and easy to apply.
