How to Hydrate During the Summer with Makeup On

Summer is here, and while the sunshine is wonderful, it can also bring challenges for keeping your skin hydrated—especially when you're wearing makeup. Hydration is crucial, not just for your skin, but for your overall well-being. Here’s how to stay hydrated internally and externally while maintaining that flawless summer glow.

Internal Hydration

Hydrate from the Inside Out

Staying hydrated is essential, especially during the hot summer months when we lose more fluids through sweat. One of my favorite alternatives to traditional sports drinks like Gatorade is a healthier, less toxic option with less sugar. This alternative not only tastes great but also helps replenish electrolytes without the high price tag of other powders on the market. It's perfect for cutting grass, workouts, or any summer activity.

Here’s my go-to recipe for a DIY Electrolyte Drink:


  • 2 cups of cold water

  • 1 cup of coconut water (natural electrolyte source)

  • 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

  • 1-2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup (optional, for a bit of sweetness)


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large glass or bottle.

  2. Stir well until the salt and sweetener are completely dissolved.

  3. Chill in the fridge or add ice cubes for a refreshing summer drink.

This homemade electrolyte drink is a fantastic, healthier alternative to commercial sports drinks. It’s lower in sugar, free from artificial colors and flavors, and packed with natural ingredients to keep you hydrated and energized.

External Hydration

Keep Your Skin Hydrated

When it comes to keeping your skin hydrated while wearing makeup, a good hydrating spray is a game-changer. My favorite is the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray. It’s a lightweight, hydrating mist that refreshes your skin and helps set your makeup, giving you a dewy finish. Here’s how to use it:

1. Before Makeup:

  • Spritz your face with the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray before applying your makeup. This helps to create a smooth, hydrated base for your makeup application.

2. After Makeup:

  • Once you’ve finished applying your makeup, use the spray to set everything in place. Hold the bottle about 12 inches from your face and spray evenly.

3. Throughout the Day:

  • Keep the spray in your bag and use it to refresh your makeup and hydrate your skin throughout the day. It’s perfect for a quick pick-me-up, especially in the summer heat.

Pro Tip: For an extra cooling effect, store your MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray in the refrigerator. CUTE FRIDGE HERE
