10 SUMMER BEAUTY HACKS YOU NEED

Okay ladies, here is a round-up of my favourite tips and tricks to keep you looking and feeling great this summer

SCRUB UP

Okay, we all want shiny golden limbs in the summer and especially on holiday. Save yourself packing space and money by making your own little potions to achieve just that. I swear by olive oil and sugar for a body scrub that also moisturises the skin and keeps it moisturised for hours! Mix some up and pop it in a travel bottle before you go! Coconut oil also has the same effect.

 

SHINE ON

Again, save packing time and pennies by using a slick of hair serum not only on your hair to remove summer frizz but also on your legs, arms and décolleté! It gives you that shiny shimmery look without stickiness or transfer. It’s my top tip!

 

COCONUT CRAZY

Coconut oil in your suitcase will see you through SO MANY body benefits whilst you’re away. It’s a fab moisturiser for your skin and your hair and a great after-sun – and if you melt a little it makes a brilliant shaving solution for a really smooth and close shave on all body areas. It really works! Whack some on your frazzled locks overnight and it will stop the sun damage taking hold.

 

HAIR TODAY

If you are worried about your hair and scalp and you don’t like wearing a hat, mix a little high factor sunscreen with some leave in conditioner and pop it in a  spray travel bottle. A few squirts when you come out of the pool will keep you conditioned and protected.

 

FOOT FIRST

Want smooth and pretty feet for the beach this summer? Save yourself the spend on a pedicure and make your own foot soak using bicarbonate of soda, warm water and vinegar. This will help remove dead skin and make your feet feel new again! Great for fungal infections too.

 

KEEP CALM

If you’re prone to bikini line rash due to the heat and the hair removal summer requires then here is a fab tip: soak a few chamomile tea bags in hot water and place them on the are when they are cool enough. It will take the redness away.

 

ICE ICE BABY

If you do get a spot of sunburn make yourself some Aloe ice cubes by pouring some Aloe Vera into an ice cube tray. It will cool, moisturise and take the pain down a lot.

 

BLISTERS BE GONE

If your summer sandals are rubbing your feet to bits, here is a genius little hack to try. Rub the parts most likely to be affected with deodorant, you heard me right, before you put your shoes on. This will stop the sweat and moisture and will really make a difference!

 

BRONZED BABY

If you want a golden shimmer in the evening but you don’t want to spend a fortune – mix a little shimmery gold or bronze eyeshadow into your hair serum or your favourite lotion and slick it wherever you feel the need. It will do the trick and keep you shimmering all night long.

SAND REPELLANT

Did you know that a light dusting of talcum powder on your feet and legs etc will allow to easily brush the sand off when it’s time to leave the beach? It’s true!! You can also use it as dry shampoo so pop a little pot in your case.

 

Do not keep these tips to yourselves ladies, share them with your girls and have a fabulous Summer!
