Marinka Shares Her Summer Beauty Tips with Her Daughter.

Marinka’s Summer Do’s and Don’ts

Marinka, as interviewed by her almost-14 year old daughter.

Daughter: Wait, what am I supposed to ask you again?

Marinka: Tips for summer beauty.

Daughter: Okaaaaay. If you say so.

Marinka: Come on, I have lots of great tips.

Daughter: Fine. What are your “great tips”?

Marinka: Well, first of all, sunscreen is a must. A must. And there’s no need for quote marks.

Daughter: Got it. Sunscreen.

Marinka: And also dressing in light colors.

Daughter: I’m not wearing anything pink.

Marinka: It doesn’t have to be pink. White is great.

Daughter: White stains.

Marinka: White does not stain. What stains is dropping something on white when you eat while standing up instead of sitting down like a normal human being.

Daughter: Is that your summer tip? To eat sitting down?

Marinka: That’s really more of a life tip for all seasons.

Daughter: Let’s move on. Anything else?

Marinka: Yes, go easy on the perfume. You’re going to sweat in the summer and melting perfume is not a good thing.

Daughter: Not if you have air conditioning.

Marinka: Right, but no one can spend the whole summer in air conditioning.

Daughter: Hey, and is the summer when you shave your legs? When are you going to mention that?

Marinka glares.

Daughter: You don’t shave your legs in the winter.

Marinka: Well, my leg hair is very fine and fair. Like a princess’.

Daughter: Ö

Marinka: I can hear you rolling your eyes.

Daughter: Sorry.

Marinka: But yes, I do shave my legs in the summer. And yes, I have been using your Satin Care Passionista Fruit Gel.

Daughter: I figured.

Marinka: Sorry. But doesn’t it make sense to share shaving gel?

Daughter: Why don’t you share with dad?

Marinka: Because his bottle is blue. And what normal person would choose blue when she could have a floral design. Besides it has a sparkly fruit scent and I love sparkly fruit scents.

Daughter: Maybe you should get your own.

Marinka: That is certainly an idea. I have my own Venus razor.

Daughter: Well, duh, no one shares razors.

Marinka: Not if they want the smooth Venus shave, they don’t!

Daughter: Do you have any more tips?

Marinka: Sunglasses. Always wear sunglasses. And don’t look directly at the sun.

Daughter: Are we done?

Marinka: I have a lot more wisdom to share. But just have fun in the summer, while watching out for the sun’s deadly rays.

Daughter: You should write a book.

Marinka: I know, right? Hey, wait a minute!

And of course, use the Venus Embrace Razor for a smooth, close shave. †It has a soft grip handle for great control so you won’t have to deal with a flying razor in the shower.

But never ever share razors! Not even with best friends or super smart mothers who know everything. For more shaving tips, check out Tips and Hints for Mom from Gillette Venus.

Always use sunscreen.


Comment by Betty C.

When I was a teenager we got a free sample of a new soap. It smelled good so I used it for my shower. Bad idea! I was allergic to it an broke out in a head-to-toe rash. Summertime and I couldn’t wear a swim suit. Awful.

I learned the hard way that if you are going to lotion the bottoms of your feet and you have laminate flooring, put on socks before walking around or even trying to stand up! Otherwise, you will fall down! LOL

Wear a hat as well as the sunscreen & sunglasses when you’re out & about drinking the water you always have by your side.
Thanks for the contest.

My worst beauty mishap was using the wrong haircolor shade and dyeing my hair blonde!
