Summer is really the best time of year but the harsh weather and summer activities can really do some damage to our skin and hair. After a fun-filled summer, these spa treatments are the best way to bounce back from sun damage and dry skin. These are so easy and fun that you can do them at home or even plan a spa day with friends!
1. Chlorine damaged hair is the worst but there are ways to correct the damage done from hours in the pool. All you’ll need is 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and ¼ cup of peeled cucumber. Muddle (fancy word for squish) all the ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a nice paste. Slather it all over your hair and leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse. Your hair will be soft, shiny, and good as new!
2. Makeup remover pads/cotton face masks are great items to have on hand and you can get them from almost any drug store. Soak these in a glass of cooled green tea and put onto your face to relieve sunburn and give yourself a cooling facial. The green tea will help to reduce inflammation, redness and the effects of UV radiation exposure. Green tea’s powerful antioxidants will repair that sunburn in no time.
3. Blueberries are the best summer snack but they also provide beauty benefits. Put the blueberries, honey and olive oil into a blender until they reach a creamy consistency. Apply all over the face for a fresh summer glow and a dose of antioxidants.
4. Sandals can be harsh on feet, and if you’re rocking a heeled sandal, I feel your pain even more. For a quick pick-me-up, try throwing some Epsom salt and a few drops of your favorite essential oil in a warm bath to soak those tired summer feet.
