Lets face it: summer has been great but how do we bounce back from it? Our bodies are practically begging for a little rejuvenation after soaking up the sun, sea and sand. So we are sharing five easy, affordable hair and skin care treatments that will leave you searching for excuses to pamper yourself long after the summer is over.
- Ditch Harsh Hair Products
Summer swimming in the sea or pool can get you in shape but can leave your locks matted and lifeless. To revive your hairs give it a good deep cleansing. I recommend ‘CW Home Salon Shine Booster’. This product is well within your budget and leaves a lasting smoothness and shine to your hair that you would get at a salon. Remember if you want that lasting finish with ordinary conditioners, always wash it out with cold water to lock in that shine.
- Amp Up The Moisturiser
The only way to uncover glowing skin is to remove the signs of summer by exfoliating dead skin, encouraging cell turnover and allowing moisturizers to sink in and work their magic. A natural moisturizer 2-3 times a week should do the trick and lock in the moisture.
- Crack Those Feet
Wearing flip-flops and sandals all summer has left your feet tired and dry, no doubt. Skip the salon and do some DIY pampering. Use a scrub such as Manicure/Pedicure by OPI Chamomile Mint Mask. Leave it on your heels for five minutes and wash it off in warm water and soft feet in just minutes. It’s the perfect end of summer rehab solution.
- Dried Out Nails
Your nails have been taking a beating all summer from the lashings of bright colours to a one off holiday manicure. Nails can get dry and brittle but by using a cuticle nail cream; this will solve your problem in minutes. Also let your nails have a 2-week breather after summer and lay off the nail varnish. Your nails will thank you!
- Eat Cool
To help detoxify your body on the inside from a summer of cocktails and BBQ’s; eat water-rich foods like watermelon, cucumber, celery, watercress, lemons and coconut. These are natural diuretics, so will keep you free of bloating and clean out your inside.
