Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog!
Another fave topic for today’s post, so I have had some spare time after the madness of the past month so I have been on the research of some tips, tricks or hacks that I have been testing out for myself so I can ;et you guys know which once I like the most to make the cut to my blog here they are and I must say I was pleasantly surprised!
The products I mostly came across were baking soda and apple cider vinegar are just some of the surprising products I have been trying to keep my hair and makeup in check for the summer season. Luckily, these simple hacks will help you find a balance between easy and affordable remedies to save your skin and hair.
Repair dry hair with an avocado mask
Chlorine and beaches can take the moisture out of your hair, leaving it feeling dry and coarse. But don’t fret – as a simple homemade hair mask can quickly resurrect your hair in summer.
Simply crush one whole avocado with quarter of a cup of olive oil and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix it together and apply onto the hair, then leave it in for 20 minutes before rinsing.
Make Aloe Vera ice cubes to treat sunburn
If you accidentally end up getting a bit sunburnt, simply freeze an Aloe Vera based gel into ice cube trays. This will feel amazing on your burnt skin whilst helping your skin to heal too.
Say goodbye to foundation and hello to BB cream
When the weather heats up you should opt for a BB cream instead of a thick, heavy foundation. BB creams are similar to tinted moisturisers, so you’ll still get some coverage but it will be light, allowing your skin to breathe. Plus, it won’t melt off your skin! I cannot live without my BB Cream and my favourite one since last year has been in Flormar BB Cream – love love love it!!!!
Use apple cider vinegar to prevent hair colour from fading
If your hair is coloured, sun and salt water can quickly encourage fading. Half a cup of apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy to help brighten up your locks. Simply add the vinegar to a spritz bottle, spray all over your hair and leave it in for about 10 minutes before rinsing out (I get mine from Pama)
Make coconut oil your new BFF
Coconut oil is a multi-purpose product that is great to use as moisturiser, conditioner, serum and cuticle oil. Pack into a small travel bottle and take away with you on holiday to keep your skin hydrated. Coconut oil is also great to use to fight summer frizz. Simply dab some on your fingers and lightly apply onto your hair for a quick fix. (I get mine from Pama).
Use baby powder to remove stubborn sand
This has been a life-saver for me as I hate sandy beaches but I still go because my son loves it. So at the end of a day on the beach, dust your skin with baby powder to make it much easier to brush off all the dried sand. Baby powder will absorb all the moisture that is causing the sand to stick to your skin, like sweat, sun cream and sea water, so the sand will just drop off (AMAZING!)
Now isn’t it lovely to be able to use products that you surely already own 🙂 I just love it. Do you have your own tips and tricks then why not share them – I would like to hear all about them.
Until next time,
