It happens every year. For one week your good habits become a bit more relaxed. Maybe you don’t moisturize as much as should. You slip up on applying sunscreen and your tan becomes a bit more crispy. One margarita turns into two…and then three. It’s spring break! Who can blame you for wanting to let your hair down? But when the sun sets and Monday morning arrives you may be wondering what you can do to counteract some of the wilder choices you made; And while there is no cure all, there are many natural remedies that are here to help!
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Providing your body with that extra hydration will help reverse some of that stress your skin incurred from sun, stress, and poor diet. While drinking water is a must, there’s topical ways to help alleviate these issues. Olive oil is a natural moisturizer that will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture for your parched skin. For an extra punch, create a natural scrub with our Cleansing Oil and a scoop of brown sugar. It will gently slough away the dead skin and help that bright, new skin shine through.
Be gone, frizz!
Your hair can take a beating while you’re out in the sun all day. If you’ve been at the beach, the salt and wind add to that as well. After washing your hair, deep condition with your favorite conditioner and rinse with cold water to lock in that shine. Once you’ve finished, towel dry your hair and add a few drops of grapeseed oil to your palms and work through your ends.
Because grapeseed oil has a high amount of linoleic acid it can help combat dryness by protecting against moisture loss.
Puffy eyes no more!
Late nights and extra booze is a recipe for puffy eyes the next morning. But don’t fear. You can turn to your pantry for a simple remedy. Steep a couple of green tea bags and let them cool then place directly on your face (eyes closed of course!) The antioxidants and caffeine in the green tea will help to reduce puffiness and redness around your eyes.
