7 Summer Pedicures you need on your toes NOW
Spring and summer are the times of the year where your toes are going to be out more often rather than being hidden inside shoes. If it's been a couple of months since you’ve thought about what type of nail polish you may want on your toes, then it's time to start considering how you can show off your style with your pedicure as well as your manicure.
If you're looking for a way to spice up your next pedicure, here are eight must-have summer pedicure looks.
Pink and florals. Summer is all about florals, and you should not leave your toes out. This cute design features a floral pattern on your big toe and a soft baby-pink color on the other four toes.
Bold red. Red toes never go out of style, and this look is great if you have a lot of parties to go to or if you just want to play with a bold pop of color. The one downside about having red toes is that they may not go with every outfit you put on, but who cares? It's summer!
Nude with gold.This nude-and-gold look is a fun modern look for the summer. This look features two gold stripes on your big toe and your second toe is entirely gold, giving an edgy asymmetrical look to your toenails.
Tropical green florals.This festive look is perfect for your next destination vacation because it has all the feels of the tropics painted on top of a beautiful mint green color. With this design, your big toe features tropical plants laid over a green base, and your other four nails are painted in the same green color
Electric green. If you're a person who doesn't like patterns on their toes, then you can always stick with a solid color, such as this bright electric green. This bright green color gets you in the mood for summer, and honestly, summer is one of the only times you can wear this bright of a green and get away with it.
Burgundy and gold. Burgundy and gold is a combination that looks great on almost anyone. It can warm up your skin tone and accent the tan you've been working on since the beginning of the summer. These nails feature a stamped floral pattern on the big toe along with one accent nail that is completely gold.
French and silver. French tips look just as good on your toes as they do on your fingernails, and this particular look features classic French tips with one accent nail that is covered in silver sparkles.
Summer is the perfect time to play with different pedicure designs, but if you haven't been planning what you want for your toes, then you may not know what all is available. There are plenty of different styles you can put on your toes, and you can mix and match different styles as well, but the most important thing is to have a little fun with your toes and enjoy some fun summer looks!
Why pH of skincare products is important?
The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.

THIS DERMATOLOGISTS FAVORITE NEW CLEANSER
Cleansers are an essential step in everyone’s skincare routine, but it can be difficult to find the right one for your skin. The new Aveeno Calm + Restore nourishing oat cleanser has been my new go-to daily cleanser and I love it. ❤️🙌 Aveeno has always been a brand to create formulations that target dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is no different. This cleanser is great for people all skin types but would likely benefit dry or combination skin most. The incorporated oat complex helps restore build the skin’s moisture barrier and soothe itchy skin. There is no stripping effect with this cleanser, which is something too always look for with your cleanser. Other pros about this product are its fragrance free (limiting any irritant reactions) as well as great pricing. On amazon, you can find a bottle for under $10.‼️‼️ TRUTH: If you are trying to fight acne or blackheads I recommend against this cleanser and try finding something with salicylic acid. Have you tried the new Aveeno cleanser? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! ⤵️
