When it comes to skin care I feel like Palmer’s products are always a "go to" brand for me. They have an aray of products to choose from to help make your skin look and feel amazing. And of course they can help your hair as well. I had the pleasure of trying some of their Cocoa Butter Formula products recently and fell in love!

Palmers Cocoa Butter formula skin therapy oil

 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil is a great product that can be used all over the body and can help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged skin, uneven skin ton, aging skin and fine line and wrinkles…. Long list of stuff! I have only been using this product for a few weeks now but my skin looks and feels healthier. I will have to do an update later in a month or so and let you know how it does on scars and stretch marks, which I have thanks to my amazing little boy :)  They also have the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin therapy Oil Face which will help with fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and ageing skin… another great long list!  This oil is packed with the good stuff from vitamin c, to retinol, and cocoa butter of course! There are 10 pure oils that will moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The great thing about both of these products is that they won’t leave you feeling slippery and greasy but they are hydrating and smell and feel great.

Come summer time, I tend to do less with my hair. It gets rather frizzy, and if it's humid, my styled hair will turn back to it's frizzy state in no time. So I tend to braid it, pull it back, or put it in a bun. If you want to avoid the heat from styling, there are TONS of braid options that will suit a variety of styles: casual, elegant, free-spirited, etc. So if you're interested in trying a new braid style, but not sure where to begin or even what style to choose, I have a great book to guide you! 

Braiding HandbookThe New Braiding Handbook: 60 Modern Twists on the Classic Hairstyle by Abby Smith. If I'm not sure what to do with my hair for a day/or evening out, and I don't want to heat style it, this book is great to have around. It provides easy-to-create styles with step by step photos and instructions and there are so many styles to choose from, I have no problem finding one to suit my outfit. And you don't have to be great at braiding in order to follow it! I can do a basic braid, but more than that and my braid looks pretty messy, but these photos and instructions guide you through every step! There are definitely easier to create styles in this book, and a few more that will take a bit more time to perfect. I suggest starting with a look that is simple and work your way up from there. Even the simple braids create great looks - the completed style often looks more complicated than it actually is! For me, braids are a great way to add interest to my hair style, and keep my hair off my neck during those warmer days. Keep this book around and you won't run out of hair styles for this summer!

PHILIP B. Thermal Protection SprayIf you still want the full blow out hair style for times this summer, I also have just the right tools you need!

The first part of styling your hair with heat tools, is to always use some type of heat protection product. I like to use Philip B Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray. This weightless spray detangles your hair, while shielding it from the damaging effects of blow dryers and heat irons. You are left with bouncy, soft and smooth hair. Use before styling to increase shine and prevent hair breakage. You can also take this spray to the beach/outdoor activities - mist for a weightless/invisible shield against the sun, chlorine and water. Hair won't get dry and brittle and the spray protects your hair color from fading! This multi-tasking protection hair spay has one more trick up it's sleeve - hair perfume! When you spray this product in your hair, the scent gradually releases over time for a lingering, seductive scent. You can now add a great scent to your hair without worrying about damaging it. I use this spray every time after I wash my hair, and even if I don't style it, my hair is always soft and shiny. 

Philip B round hair brushThe next tool to use for a smooth blow out style is a good hairbrush. Another one from Philip B is the Round Hairbrush. This brush uses gentle boar bristles that won't snag or tangle your hair. The dense bristles pick up each strand easily and polish the strands for a frizz free finish. The brush is also made from sustainable mahogany. It feels most definitely like a luxury brush that will help create a smooth, bouncy blowout.
