Want glowing skin and beachy waves, like Kelly Ripa and Nia Long? Read on…
Â Do you sometimes feel like as Fall approaches (and warm weather dwindles), you are left wanting to recapture the feeling of summer? Stretch the days ofÂ summer with these savvy beauty tips…
* If you want to remember summer fondly (while erasing the sun damage it leaves behind), try adding antioxidants to your routine in clever ways. We love the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser from organic skin care company Made From Earth, which is jam-packed with antioxidants (to help fight free radicals and reduce residual damage), and soothing aloe vera (which can tone down too-much-beach-time ruddiness).
* If your hair is feeling fried and frazzled from too many waves, try using a leave-in shine product (like Aussie Sun-Touched Shine) to add life to your locks.Missing that wavy texture (which only sand, sun and surf can seem to create?) Try using the uber-affordable Aussie Sprunch spray to recreate “beach hair”, or combine (Splurge products) from Nick Chavez (Leave-In Thickening Cream Conditioner and Flocker texturizing mousse) for a hydrating, tossled texture.Â
* Still craving that softly glowing skin that summer seems to deliver? Try reversing any summertime damage and dryness (while protecting from the sun), with a hydrating formula (like Olay Total Effects + Touch of Sun). It helps reduce lines, nourish and smooths skin, refines pores, and helps subtly maintain your color with a soft sunless tanner. Can it also do our laundry?
* When in doubt? Try using a lip balm that tastes like summer (like this Strawberry Mocha organic lip balm), or winning aFREE chocolate lip balm and 5% off a Made From Earth purchase, just by entering the exclusive code “Makeovermomma” at check out.
