On hot summer days, you might feel like throwing your beauty routine right out the window. Through the sweating and the swimming, it can be hard to keep anything on your face. On top of that, humid summer temps can wreak havoc on your hair. Don’t worry, though– the summer heat isn’t impossible to beat! We’re sharing some of the latest at-home trends to help keep your beauty game on point this summer.
Summer is all about being outside and enjoying the warm weather, but with sun exposure sometimes comes sunburns. So, if you plan on basking in the warm rays for hours at a time, it’s probably a good idea to update your skin care routine to include products that contain SPF.
While you’re at it, take a look at the ingredients in all of the beauty products you use daily. Recycle old or toxic items and replace them with safe beauty products that can improve your health. If you update your collection before summer, you can protect your skin, prevent sunburns, and live a healthier lifestyle.
Do you want healthy, glowing skin, without the harmful rays? Research sunless self-tanners and choose a product that works best for your skin type. If you have dry, sensitive skin, look for a moisturizing sunless tanner to nourish and improve skin texture. Some organic products contain antioxidants and vitamins (like A, B, and E,) which help fight signs of aging–and who doesn’t want that?
Sunless tanners allow you to develop gorgeous color without putting your skin’s health at risk. Plus, the at-home application process is easy and convenient–just make sure you read the labels and follow the directions before using the product.
Forget ‘rise and shine,’ this summer is all about ‘rise and glow!’ Kick your morning routine off with a healthy smoothie that’s good for both you and your skin. Blend this latest trend right into your favorite smoothie recipe: Beauty Dust. What is it? Good question. Beauty dust is an edible, powdered blend of plant-derived herbs and vitamins that help improve the appearance of your skin and hair.
A trend like this seems too good to be true, but beauty dust is a tasty and easy way to improve the look of your skin. GreenBlender’s Purple Beauty Dust Delight smoothie recipe is full of natural ingredients that help boost your immune system and energy level. For people who don’t get enough vitamin-C, this recipe provides a healthy dose to improve your health. You can also thank this recipe in advance for improving collagen production and giving your skin a gorgeous, summer glow!
No, you’re not dreaming. According to reputable doctors, feeling stressed out really does affect the appearance of your skin. There are multiple ways stress upsets your skin, but a common culprit is the release of inflammatory chemicals that cause inflammation. Manage your stress with this relaxing trend: an at-home spa.
Do yourself a favor and set aside some time each day to practice self-care. One soothing way to do this is creating a spa-like oasis right at home. Summer is one of the best seasons for large-scale remodeling projects, so think about how you can modify your bathroom (or even an outdoor area) to feel more relaxing. A jetted tub or steam shower are excellent options for relieving pain and creating a spa-like atmosphere to help you de-stress.
If you’re like most people, installing a new bathtub probably isn’t something you know how to do–or at the very least, not something you can accomplish as safely, quickly, and correctly as an experienced pro can. So, save yourself even more stress from potential DIY-related errors, and find a licensed plumber to complete your tub or shower installation.
Once your project is complete, you can enjoy all the mental and physical benefits that accompany soaking in a jetted tub. Aromatherapy can help reduce inflammation and stress; which can help improve the health of your skin and hair. Don’t just dump oils into your bath–educate yourself on how to safely add essential oils to your bath so you don’t end up irritating your skin. Summer is a difficult time of year to maintain a fresh, hydrated glow. While you soak, give your face some love with a natural, hydrating face mask. An at-home spa can relax your body and mind, leave your skin soft and hydrated, and allow you to relax anytime you need, right at home.
If you want to unwind and take care of yourself (especially in the heat) incorporate these trends, as well as any other ones you enjoy, into your routine this summer!
