The Best DIY Beauty Tips For Summer
You don't need to spend a lot of money on your summer beauty. Natural products are best for this time of year. You don't want to add harsh chemicals into your routine, as your skin can already be dry and irritated from the sun.
Here are five all-natural DIY beauty treatments that will help your skin glow all summer:
1. Flavored Water
When summer rolls around, and temperatures heat up, your skin (and the rest of your body) are at a higher risk of getting dehydrated. Dry skin can cause breakouts, redness and fine lines.
Keep a bottle of water on you all times and drink religiously. Give your drink the DIY treatment by adding in fruit, vegetables, and herbs to make it more refreshing and satisfying to drink.
Even just adding a spoonful of Raspberry Juice Powder will make all the difference!
2. Custom Face Oil
In addition to drinking water, face oils are the perfect way to keep your skin hydrated and give you a beautiful glow.
The first step is choosing a base oil, such as vitamin E oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil. Then you can add essential oils for fragrance and additional benefits. Lavender oil, for example, is excellent for calming the skin.
3. All-Natural Perfume
Most of us tend to sweat more in the summer. Instead of reapplying deodorant multiple times per day, create an all-natural perfume from essential oils. There are hundreds of different scents to choose from, so experiment with your favorites and see what works.
4. Homemade Body Scrub
Summer means shorts and tank tops, which means you're showing more skin. Keep your skin beautiful and glowing with a homemade body scrub. Combine coconut oil with coffee grounds (or brown sugar) in a bowl and massage all over your body. The coffee will exfoliate while the oil hydrates.
5. Create Your Own Lip Balm
The sensitive skin on your lips is especially prone to drying out and cracking under the harsh summer sun. This recipe for a coconut vanilla lip balm sounds good enough to eat. You can even mix in some of our Red Beet Powder to make a quick and totally natural tinted lip balm!
