Summer is finally upon us and we all want to look our best…the natural way. When its 22 degrees out and you are heading to the beach you don’t want to have to do your usual routine of products. So here are some of my favourite tips and tricks’ and simple products to use to keep you looking your best this summer.
#1 Coconut Oil: First up is a product that can be used for both the hair and skin. Coconut oil is the most amazing multi-purpose product. Stick to an organic virgin coconut oil for best results. I love to moisturise with this during the summer for a tropical scent and it’s also a great treatment for your hair after a day in the sun. Just warm up the oil in your hands and rub onto your hair end. Sleep on it and wash as normal the next morning. Don’t forget you can also cook with it and it contains super healthy fats.
#2 Lemon Juice: Use lemon juice to add some natural highlights to your hair. Just squeeze a half lemon into a dish and brush the juice on the strands you would like lighter. I would stick to the hairs around your face as this is where the sun naturally hits anyway. This will give you that Victoria Secret natural sunkissed look.
#3 Body brushing: This is a great way to keep your skin looking soft and supple during the summer months. Keep them exfoliated and use a body brush dry on the skin to increase circulation around the body. This is a great remedy for cellulite too. Brush in long strokes, always brushing towards the heart and in areas with cellulite (bum, thighs, etc) use circular motions.
This is a favourite of Miranda Kerr!
#4 Sugar Scrub: This scrub is so quick and easy to make and it makes your skin super soft. Can be used all over…I particularly love it for my legs and feet. Mix together sugar, olive oil and honey in a small bowl and gently rub the mixture onto the skin and rinse with warm water.
#5 Lips and Cheeks: If you want to add a hint of colour to your lips and cheeks Vaseline Rose is a great multi-purpose product. Its quick and easy and you can just pop it into your bag.
#6 Body Shimmer: For those summer nights apply Honey Bronze shimmer from the Body Shop for an amazing bronze glow and summer goddess look.
