It’s hard to look beautiful in the summer unless you’re one of those natural beauties who looks good without makeup… I am not 🙂
Between the sweating from the heat of the summer sun, or the outdoor water activities it’s hard to keep your makeup and hair looking flawless… well, that’s the goal anyway..
There are things you can change in your summer beauty routine to help keep yourself feeling better and in turn looking better. Because we all know feeling good makes us look exude our inner beauty!
Check out these great summer beauty hacks to get your summer beauty routine going:
Keep Your Skin Smooth
Try this DIY Coconut Oil Shaving Cream recipe to use when you shave, I also use it for any dry skin areas. It works great and takes less than 5 minutes to make!
Look Great Between Pedis
Cut a potato in half (this is a better use than eating all those carbs anyway :)) Cover it in sea salt and use it as an exfoliator for your feet. Scrub it all around the bottom and sides of your feet to keep your feet looking and feeling smooth and beautiful!
Don’t Turn Green
I grew up in Florida in the sun and surf and pool. My hair was white and a week or so in the pool could turn it green in a heartbeat! One way to prevent this is to coat your hair with conditioner before going to the pool. The conditioner fills the hair shaft and keeps the chlorine out (the chlorine is what turns blondes green). You can also use coconut oil, or olive oil, too, be sure to rinse your hair as soon as you’re out of the chlorine for the day to keep it protected.
Don’t Get Sick
Growing up I always said my nail polish was “sick” when it got all ooey and gooey and bubbly and wasn’t good anymore. I found that heat caused this and I started keeping my polish in the fried and it worked like a charm.
Blackheads No More
With summer sweat and activities the blackheads just seem to multiply! Try this super simple DIY Blackhead Remover recipe you can make with items you probably have in your pantry right now.
Tame the Frizz
I WISH I had known this when I was a kid growing up in Florida, my hair was FOREVER frizzy! Now, I live in Dallas and I don’t deal with frizz at all anymore. But, if you do, try this quick and easy remedy with ingredients you can probably find in your pantry:
I love this DIY Shower Gellies recipe! I keep them in the fridge and use them for hand washing and in the shower. I love the way they moisturize my skin, too!
Static No More
We all get static in our hair from time to time. It’s caused by dry hair, you can use a dryer sheet and rub it on your hair to tame it, you can spray your hairbrush with hairspray, too, just spray on the brush and then wave it a bit to dry it a little and then just brush. The best solution I have found is leave in conditioner – just apply it lightly when you see the static and it will calm right down!
Change Your Foundation
In the summer with all of the heat – it’s best to drop that winter foundation and opt for something less heavy. Try a tinted moisturizer, or better yet, let your skin breathe – just use a moisturizer with SPF and a little blush and be done!
Don’t Be Sidelined By A Sunburn
I actually ended up with a terrible burn years ago. I was in bed for weeks and on pain meds and pain relieving cream. So, avoid that… If you spend a lot of time in the sun – soothe your over-baked skin with plain yogurt. Apply it directly to the burned areas and let your skin soak it in. Follow up with Aloe Vera, if needed. The yogurt is cool and moisturizing and will feel great after a hot day outside, too.
