Popular YouTube star Dulce Ruiz, aka Dulce Candy, has beauty tutorials for just about every look under the sun—from red carpet glam to winged eyeliner to milkmaid braids and more! The Mexico native began creating her own videos after she returned from a 15-month tour of duty in Iraq, tapped into the vlogger community and recognized her unique ability to educate and inspire viewers.

And inspire us, she did! Earlier this year, Dulce partnered with Target on our “Lúcete a tu Manera” or “Show Off, Your Way” beauty campaign, and now, the makeup guru is back for more. Today, the DIY diva takes on summer skincare solutions, giving us her tips for keeping skin looking healthy and hydrated from Fourth of July all the way to Labor Day:

Fourth of July weekend is upon us! What are your skincare and makeup recommendations for guests who are…

What should guests know about preventing makeup from running when the temps are up?

When the temperatures go up, I like to skip out on full glam makeup. I would recommend mineral-based makeup and a light Laneige concealer with SPF so that you don't have to worry about makeup streaks due to hot weather. If you live in a dry area like me, I love PIXI by Petra’s hydrating facial mist to not only refresh your skin while you're out in the sun, but replenish any lost moisture.

At the end of a hot summer day, what can guests do to rejuvenate their skin after time spent out in the sun?

Treat skin that has been exposed to the sun with Bare Republic’s rehydration serum to soothe and calm any irritation. I also love using a slice of aloe vera directly on areas of my body that have been burned by the sun.

Is there anything guests should do more of or less of for their skin over the summer?

Stay away from chemical peels! Exposure to the sun can cause more damage, so it's best to save these types of treatments for the fall and winter. This is also the time to store away any heavy makeup products, which can be unflattering during hot days. Take the time to treat your skin with revitalizing cleansers and masks from PIXI by Petra to keep it healthy all summer long.
