5 Summer Beauty Hacks
Summer is here! Which means natural beauty is in! Who wants to spend hours primping and priming in the bathroom when you can be out enjoying all summer has to offer. Here are 5 beauty tips that will save you time and keep you looking HOT for summer!
1. Redken No-Blow Dry Cream
Redken makes this amazing cream that tames the frizz and enhances your natural texture with no effort! Hop out of the shower and scrunch this cream through your hair and you’re good to go! The next day you might have to touch up a few pieces with a curling iron, but still way better than having to blow-dry and style!. No Blow Dry comes in three different strengths for any hair texture.
2. Eyelash tinting
Have beautiful dark lashes without worrying about “raccoon” eyes or loosing lash extensions. This treatment only takes 30 minutes and lasts up to 6 weeks. This is also a great option for those with mascara sensitivities.
3. Body Waxing
If you plan on showing off some skin this summer, wax before you shave! You will save so much more time, and be more comfortable and confident in the long run!
Have you ever heard that waxing makes your hair grow back thicker and darker? IT’S NOT TRUE! Waxing actually makes hair grow back finer (which makes it appear lighter), softer, and more sparse. When you completely remove the hair from the follicle the follicle then has to grow a completely new hair, which will grow in softer than shaving. When you shave, you are cutting a blunt which makes the hair feel coarse and prickly. Also, when you remove hair from the follicle you end up damaging some follicles, which then results in less hair growing back! Finally waxing results in smooth hairless skin for weeks! The more you wax, the longer you can go in between waxing sessions.
4. Moisturizer with SPF
Let’s be honest, SPF should be used all year long, but summer is a good time to be extra mindful because of all the outdoor activities. Keep your skin bright and supple with a good moisturizer SPF duo. Our favorite at Kellie and Company is Image Prevention line.
5. Wet Hair Before Swimming
Prevent that infamous green tinged hair by getting your hair wet with clean water before dunking into the pool. Saturating the hair cuticle with clean water will help minimize your hair soaking up chlorine water, which can give a green hue to your hair (especially blondes). If you still get green hair, try using a clarifying shampoo. Our favorite at Kellie and Company is Pureology’s Clarify.
