10 Lazy Summer Girl Beauty Tips

Yes to Coconuts Polishing Body Scrub

Have no fear girls, you can still look fabulous with minimal make-up, or simply use these quick and easy beauty tips to look great all summer long. After all, let’s be honest, we all have days where we need quick and simple tips, or we are just feeling lazy, here you go! Enjoy! For more of my tips, please turn to Cliche for the full 10 Lazy Summer Girl Beauty Tips! 

 

1. Sunglasses & Floppy Hat

Sunglasses are a fashionably great way of protecting your eyes from the sun. But why stop there? Complement those shades with a floppy hat, and you’ll be protecting your head and shoulders while looking classy.

2. Primer

Most primers on the market contain silicone. Silicone is an ingredient that is very good to have in your primer to maintain your makeup application. Come rain or shine, it will prolong your application throughout the day, but remember to prevent your makeup from separating.  To avoid having to touch it up, follow these rules:

  • Don’t apply your makeup with your fingers. The oil on your hands can cause your makeup to separate. Apply your makeup with a foundation brush instead. You can use the same foundation that you have used to apply your primer with your foundation, usually a BB Cream ends up being your friend during this season.
  • Silicone and water do not mix. So, make sure your primer matches your makeup ingredients. Since you are using a silicone based primer, make sure your makeup is silicone based, as well.

Once primer has been applied, apply your BB Cream – light foundation is all you need in the summer. Follow it with blush and gloss, and if you prefer, add eye liner and mascara as a finishing touch.

3. Shave Smartly

If you are anything like us, then all of those steps to shave is just too much. Shave some time of this tedious endeavor by using a shaver that has built-in shave bars and moisturizer, like a Gillette Venus Razor.  You’re legs will feel smooth and look great, because of these added features.

Protect Your Skin & Hair

Facial mask

Protect your skin from the harsh winter chill and avoid flaky skin by staying hydrated throughout the season.

The first step is to exfoliate your skin. It’s always helpful to exfoliate, whether you’re using a natural exfoliator that you’ve purchased or one that’s homemade. Removing dead skin cells is very important as this leaves the skin healthier-looking and—well—healthy. This also allows the skin cells to grow to their full capacity.

Want to make your own natural exfoliator at home? Just follow these simple steps, using two basic ingredients from your kitchen’s pantry.

Thicken Your Hair with Chamomile

You’ve heard me right. In addition to chamomile to calming an upset stomach, calming migraines, calming the redness on your skin (even for babies!), it has amazing benefits to thicken your hair. Who knew?! Quite honestly, this doesn’t apply to me, as I have really thick hair, enough for the bald heads, as my many hair stylists have told me since i can remember. Not too brag. So, I had turned to a friend who has thin hair to try this out. 

Since thick hair derives from healthy hair (how to obtain and main it, click on the link for my tips :)). All you have to do is drink a cup of chamomile tea.

Best Selling: Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo C$22

I have tried a few dry shampoos over the years. Some of them have left my hair oily. My hair isn’t oily. It’s normal. Or, my scalp dry. I didn’t feel it was really doing the trick. I was given a sample of this product from Sephora the other day. Though I’d try another dry shampoo, not knowing what to expect, really. Even though, i have not been disappointed by this co-created line by Jennifer Aniston. This dry shampoo, does not dry my scalp, nor does it make my hair or scalp oily. It’s luxurious and prestigious. I encourage you to give it a try. Dry shampoo is powder texture product. Powder absorbs oil, so if you scalp is dry, I wouldn’t recommend using any dry shampoo. If your hair is normal, that’s entirely up to you. If your scalp and hair is oily, definitely use a dry shampoo. Wash your hair in the morning, and by late-afternoon spray this formula into your hair to give it a pick-me-up. It will restore your style to how it was in the morning after you’ve styled it. Dry shampoo is good for in between wet washes. So, it does clean your hair, even though it’s powder-based. 

Additional Information:

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo contains fast-absorbing powders that soak up oil and sweat. Great for all hair types and colors, a patented OFPMA molecule reduces the surface friction on hair—leaving virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up—making it easy to remove the powder. Odor neutralizers eliminate unwanted smells, and a time-release fragrance releases a light, refreshing, long-lasting scent.

DOES NOT CONTAIN parabens, sulfates, phthalates

What else you need to know:
See white residue? A little residue that can be easily removed is expected (that’s the cleaning in the works). If you experience more than that, make sure you shake the can and hold it farther from your head. Use a bristle brush and/or blow dryer to remove visible powders.

Hair Tips: Washing Pastel Coloured or Coloured Hair

I’ve recently added purple into my hair. I had thought, why not? It’s such a trend. I went medium-purple so it would lighten to the shade of my desire; lavender and lilac.

15873293_10154440734418992_8196133582079892345_n.jpg

What was advised to me from my hairstylist was the best way to wash your hair (on How to Attain and Maintain Beautiful, Healthy Hair, plus on how to properly wash your hair, please click on the link), use sulfate-free shampoo. This even works for coloured hair in general. The colour actually lasts longer. The shampoo I’ve decided to use is from Kiss My Face.

Miss Treated Shampoo

Kiss My Face Miss Treated Shampoo $7.95

Miss Treated Conditioner

Kiss My Face Miss Treated Conditioner $7.95

I’m recommending Kiss My Face shampoo and conditioner only because I really love the results. My hair is super-fine, a curly (wavy), super-thick, so it’s heavy. Fine hair has a tendency to have flat roots, and lots of body if the hair is thick, or to be just not have body at all. The combo of these two deliver volume into my locks. I’m not even using their body shampoo and conditioner. Just imagine what the body for the hair shampoo and conditioner would do. Hello, body. Hello, volume! I have always liked volume. I mean it doesn’t look right to have body and flat roots. My scalp and skin is sensitive. My scalp has  become even more sensitive over the years. I’m pleased to know Kiss My Face hair care shampoo and conditioner is designed for sensitive skin.

Kiss My Face hair care products are formulated with Argan Oil. Amazing Argan Oil adds moisture and shine, rejuvenating hair and scalp. Rich in natural antioxidants, essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, this “liquid gold” helps hair retain moisture and improves elasticity to help prevent breakage.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dyer

 

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dyer C$399

 

Image result for dyson supersonic

A hair dryer with a high-speed, powerful, brushless digital motor and intelligent heat control for shine.

Key benefits:
– Delivers intelligent heat control for shine
– Dries hair fast
– Straightens and smooths

If you want to know more…
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer has intelligent heat control technology, which helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect hair’s natural shine. The temperature is measured 20 times a second and transmits this data to the microprocessor, which intelligently controls the patented compact heating element from reaching extreme, hair damaging temperatures. The powerful tool moves over 13 liters of air every second. Combined with Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier™ technology, air is amplified threefold, creating a high pressure, focused jet of air for controlled, precise, drying and styling. The digital motor V9 is on average six times faster, a third of the weight, and half the size of other hair dryer motors. Due to its compact size, Dyson was able to put the motor in the handle, making the dryer feel balanced in your hands.

Dyson has created three precisely engineered magnetic attachments with 16 patents pending, to further control the airflow, allowing you to effortlessly achieve a range of different styles. The smoothing nozzle uses smooth, wide air for a sleek finish, while the styling concentrator is for precise styling to shape hair one section at a time without worrying about disturbing the rest. The diffuser disperses air evenly around curls to gently dry hair and improve definition. With heat shield technology, the surfaces of the attachments stay cool—even during close-up styling.

The Dyson Supersonic also has a removable filter at the bottom of the dryer that notifies you when it needs to be cleaned. It features four heat settings, three airflow settings, a cold shot, and ionizer, all with 1600 watts of power. This product comes with a professional-length nine-feet power cord and a two-year warranty on parts and labor.

This set contains:
– Dyson Supersonic
– Smoothing nozzle
– Styling concentrator
– Diffuser
– Non-slip mat
– Storage hanger

What else you need to know:
Dyson’s state-of-the-art laboratory has dedicated itself to hair research for over four years. With 2,000 engineers and more than 500 inventions, Dyson continuously looks for solutions to everyday problems. From years of research, Dyson engineers have learned how hair reacts to stress, hot to keep it healthy, and how to achieve a desired style.

“If you know anything about me, you know I’m a lover of innovation and new technology, and the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is just that. The motor is much smaller, but still very powerful, so I can dry hair quickly and it feels light in my hand. Plus, the aesthetic is so gorgeous.”—Jen Atkin, Celebrity Hair Stylist

“Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient, and make a racket. By looking at them further, we realized that they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems.”—James Dyson, Founder and Chief Engineer
