Look and Feel Your Best with These Quick Summer Fixes
Summer is one of the favored seasons. The sunny sky, icy treats, fun activities and planned and unplanned getaways, make for some of the most enjoyable months of the year. Here are some great ways to make sure you’re feeling and looking your best this summer. Check out these great summer fixes.
Are you suffering from sunburn? Here’s a simple solution, frozen aloe vera gel in ice cube gel. It’s proven to be highly effective in soothing irritation caused by the sun.
Shiny Summer Hair
The hot summer sun can be damaging on the hair. Try 1 tbs of apple cider vinegar as a conditioner, following shampoo. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse. Vinegar is highly effective in cutting chlorine residue, leaving hair glossy and bouncy.
Swim Spray is also a great option. SwimSpray is a simple, safe and quick way to remove spray safely eliminates chlorine odor and irritation from your hair and skin. You’ll see results immediately. This is one of my personal faves.
Perfect Poolside Storage
Shhh, ready for one of the best kept secrets? ….A cleaned-out sunscreen bottle is the perfect poolside hideaway for small items or if you don’t feel up to cleaning a tube, you can purchase a handy, ready- to- use one (as shown) at geekalert. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything too valuable, but for small whatnots, like chapstick and replaceable room key card, it’s the ideal haven.
Quick Tush Toner
It might sound strange, but skin firming facial mask might be the solution to a droppy backside. Try this tush toning recipe:
The caffience will increase circulation and absorb excess water out of skin cells resulting in a tightening effect. Olive oil and honey will hydrate, providing skin with a supple appearance.
CoQ10 is also a great way to tone skin. Try Nivea Skin Firming Lotion and watch it work.
Swap Your Sweetner- Diminish Muffin Top
Trade in your sweetener for Yacon Syrup. It’s a great way to naturally reduce sugar intake. It contains antioxidants elements such as Vitamin A, C and E and thankfully there are no traces of glucose. According to Peggy Kotsopoulus, author of Kitchen Cures, this molasses-like syrup aids digestion and stabilizes blood sugar to prevent belly fat. Studies have proven that women who digest 3 tsp of syrup a day, lose an average of 1.9 inches from their waist per month.
Banish Jiggly Upper-Arm Flab
Stubborn “behind the arms” flab has many causes,one of which is excess estrogen that signals the body to store more fat in various areas. To help regulate hormones and reduce arm flab, swap heavy carbs for veggies like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. Studies have proven that these specific vegetables boost indole-3-carbinol which decreases estrogen potency and lowers levels in our body.
