Summer is here.
And much as it will be a strange one, and one spent close to home, we still cannot wait for lazy days at the beach or in the park, dips in the sea and evenings spent sipping on Aperol Spritzes at the garden table.
Sounds good? We know. However, while summer is our favourite season for sure, there are some aspects of the hot weather that can really put a damper on our beauty routines. But, guys, if you’d rather “glow” than well, be a downright sweaty and frizzy mess, we have rounded up three seriously great summer beauty hacks you’ll want to memorize ASAP.
1. Use baby powder to clean sandy feet
You probably know by now that you (in a pinch) can use baby powder as dry shampoo to absorb excess oil from your scalp? Well, did you know this baby staple is also a bit of a hero when it comes to removing sand from your body and feet after a day at the beach?
Just sprinkle baby powder on your feet, legs, and anywhere else where you’ve got sand stuck to you, and the powder will absorb the moisture on your skin from sweat and saltwater (which is what makes the sand stick to you) and you’ll be able to wipe all of the sand off immediately.
2. Use dry shampoo at night to keep your hair fresh
Look, we love dry shampoo as much as you do all year around, but did you know in the summer, you might want to change up your dry shampoo routine a little? Instead of applying it in the morning to fake clean hair, spritz it on your roots at night, to let the product absorb oil (and perspiration) throughout the night. And voila; you’ll wake with fresh and bouncy strands, we promise.
3. Use chamomile tea to treat bikini line rash
Prone to those dreaded red bumps whenever you shave your bikini line? Yup, us too. However, you might want to try this trick before you hop into your swimsuit this holiday season: Steep a few bags of chamomile tea in hot water, then let them cool for about 15-20 minutes in the freezer. Lay the tea bags along your bikini line where you see a rash and let the calming effects of the herbs do their job.
