Hair Secrets of Summer -Tame Frizz & Remove Unwanted Hair!
My summer products are usually all about the "smooth" - smooth hair, smooth legs, smooth/clear complexion. I want products that help simplify my routine and make it easier but effective for the summer.
When I'm in and out of the pool/ocean and the humid weather comes through, it can be quite difficult to keep my hair smooth and healthy during the summer months. To help with that dilemma this summer, I have been using Keratin Complex Infusion Therapy. This hair creme hydrates and revitalizes your hair with a blend of keratin and emollients for a silky smooth finish. It is great to use before blow-drying and/or heat styling to smooth away roughness and provide nourishment to the hair cuticle. And even if you're not heat styling your hair this summer, it will protect against frizz-causing humidity. This product is also intended to optimize results from Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments. You can use this product on damp or dry hair, but for optimal results use on damp hair and blow dry or flat iron.
Next up, Boots No.7 Beautiful Skin Energizing Mask. I think it's important to keep up with your skincare routine during the summer months, and that usually means using a face mask 1-2 times per week. We want to make sure our skin stays clear for the no-makeup beach days and especially need to give it some extra attention during those particularly hot and sweaty days - make sure to use your cleanser before bed! It can be hard to choose a face mask during those warmer days, as it may feel too hot to wear a thick mask.
That is why I like to use Boots No. 7 Beautiful Skin Energizing Mask. This peel off mask freshens, hydrates and revitalizes your skin for a healthy, bright looking complexion. It's also a great thin mask to use this summer - apply a thin layer to dry skin and leave to dry for 10 minutes. It looks like a thin layer of oil is sitting on your skin and it does not feel sticky or suffocating when you use it on a warmer day/evening. After 10 minutes, gently peel the mask away from your skin. It is not irritating and does not pull at your skin but comes off easily and best part, there is no residue left over from the product. Skin feels clean, bright and hydrated!
Last but not least, hair removal. Hair removal products are an important piece to maintaining smooth skin this summer, especially when you're out wearing all those dresses and bikinis! A good go to brand is for hair removal is Veet.
I use the Ready-to-Use Wax Strips. These are super easy to use and leave very little to no mess. If you're don't wax but would like to start, these ready to use wax strips are the best way to go in my opinion. Veet uses a specially formulated wax that acts as a liquid during application, allowing for the wax to grab ahold of even the shorter hair and locks the hair for effective removal. One tip, be sure to remove the strip quickly and hold your skin taught. If you get a little scared and weakly pull the strip away from your skin, it won't be as effective and may leave the hair and a thin layer of wax. So don't do that! Remove quickly and efficiently. You can also buy the Bikini, Underarm & Face Kit, which contains smaller appropriately sizes strips that will make hair removal in those areas easier. The kit also comes with Perfect Finish Wipes to help get rid of any wax residue left on the skin.
Waxing the larger areas of your skin, such as your legs and arms, can take a bit of time. If you're looking for a quicker solution and still want to avoid shaving, check out Veet Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Removal. This gel cream will leave you with smoother skin longer than using your regular razor. This gel cream also helps restore your skins hydration levels for an even smoother finish. Plus, this product takes very little time - apply a thick, even layer of cream and make sure the area you want is completely covered - do not rub the cream in! Wash your hands thoroughly. Leave on for three minutes (time carefully) and then use the Perfect Touch Spatula to test a small area. If hair comes away easily, remove the rest of the cream with a wet wash cloth. If not, leave the cream on a little longer but DO NOT exceed 6 minutes. When I used this, my hair came off easily after three minutes. Once you remove all the cream, rinse your skin (without soap) clean and, again, do not rub in. You're left with smooth, hydrated, touchable skin!
