(BPT) - Summer is the time to inspire the senses, embrace the warm weather and have fun with seasonal trends. Looking and feeling your best can be challenging as temperatures and humidity levels rise, but a few simple tips can help you incorporate some of the season’s hottest trends and enjoy a beautiful, refreshed look all summer long.

Summer hues

The trick to experimenting with warm weather beauty trends is keeping them fun and simple. One way to spice up your look this summer is to integrate bright and bold color palettes into your everyday beauty routine. Play up the orange trend with a pop of orange-hued lip color balanced with a swipe of mascara for a low-maintenance, yet polished look. Another easy tip to enhance your summer look is to try out trendy, playful nail polishes during your next trip to the salon. Select other of-the-moment shades like turquoise and hot pink to complete your summertime chic look.

Summer scents

Summer is the time to try lighter scents with fresh, fruity and floral notes. Dove recently introduced Restore - the newest fragrance addition to the Dove go fresh product collection. Infused with a luscious blue fig and bright, floral orange blossom scent, the hydrating formula provides both the perfect summer scent as well as refreshment you can feel. New Dove go fresh Restore Body Wash contains the brand’s mildest formula yet, while the Dove go fresh Restore Beauty Bar provides signature Dove care with one-quarter moisturizing cream to keep your skin feeling nourished all summer long.

Summer heat and humidity can also increase perspiration. New Dove go fresh Restore Anti-Perspirant Deodorant provides effective 48-hour protection, perfect for smelling and feeling fresh during the dog days of summer.

Summer stylin’

Hot temperatures and extra moisture in the air can wreak havoc on hair. Although we cannot control the weather outside, there are a number of simple hairstyles that put the control back in your hands.  Braids are a great way to keep long layers and bangs off the face and stylishly in place. To keep the nape of the neck cool, try donning a loose, messy bun or a top knot; whether low and loose or high and sleek, buns are a quick and easy way to fight frizz while looking effortlessly chic. Want to take your hairstyle up a notch for a special occasion? A jeweled headband will instantly dress up any look.

Looking chic in the summer may seem more challenging than in other seasons, but incorporating a few of these hot trends into your beauty routine can help you look your best on even the hottest days.
