Summer Beauty for Mom

Long days at the beach can leave your hair and skin dry to say the least. Try these summer beauty tricks to keep looking your best.

Your beauty routine begins with your inner health. By eating fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as drinking plenty of fresh water, you provide a great baseline for your outward beauty. In addition to eating healthy, exercising regularly will also help detoxify your body, also benefiting your hair and skin.

Once these two elements are in place, consider doing the following:

Use organic coconut oil as your moisturizer. Apply the coconut oil to your face and body for a natural skin moisturizer. It also contains a low S.P.F., providing some sun protection as well.

Keep makeup to a minimum. Your pores need to breathe, so skip the powder and blush, and opt for lightweight options, such as blush gel and a tinted moisturizer.

Use aloe vera to heal and soothe your skin. Keep an aloe vera plant at home, so you have it available year-round. Simply cut off a leaf whenever needed!

Style your hair. Opt for braids and hair buns, as they keep your hair out of your face, and when you take your hair down, you will have that wavy beach hair everyone craves!
