It’s officially Summer and that means Sun holidays! We have put together a few beauty hacks to keep you looking your best all summer long!
- Invest in a multi-vitamin and mineral which is high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin C to boost collagen production and improves your skin’s elasticity and a high-strength Omega 3 fish oil to keep your skin hydrated and prevent wrinkles (eg) Morepa® which is the highest strength omega 3 on the market
- Use coconut oil as a leave in conditioner at the beach or as a treatment. It has a natural SPF which protects your hair from the sun and is an amazing conditioning treatment.
- Use a gradual build up tan prior to your holiday for a natural glow, but if you still find a few streaks, massage some olive oil into the skin followed by some sea salt to scuff away the marks.
- Before you tan your face, put a damp face cloth into the freezer for 10 minutes and place it across your skin to close up your pores and prevent breakouts.
- Bring the baby powder! Not only is it great for chafing, it’s a whiz at removing sand but also if you use a bronzer brush and buff some into your skin, it helps make your tan last ages longer!
- Aloe Vera gel is a sunburn victim’s best friend, especially if frozen into ice cube trays for emergencies!
- Lemon juice spritzed into your hair, will give your hair a fabulous sun kissed look without the harsh chemicals.
- A good quality SPF. we strongly advise to opt for factor 50 on the face and a minimum of factor 30 on the body! No tan is worth days of agonising sunburn and long term skin damage!
