Hi again, and happy Friday! Today I have another fun tip that I’m bound to try out this weekend.
We all have that shirt that may be a little rough around the edges, but it’s so incredibly soft and worn in that we can let go of it. Well this tip can help you turn any TShirt into that soft, comfy and worn in feeling. It takes around 3 days, so start soaking your shirt today, and by Monday it’ll feel amazing!
Place your shirt In a container filled with 1 quart of water and 1/2 cup of salt. Let it soak for three days. Machine wash with a small amount of detergent and then tumble dry.
Say goodbye to those stiff, incomfy shirts!
It is finally summertime which means lots of sun! The sun can be fun, but it is always important to make sure you’re aware of the everlasting effects too much sun can have on your body. Here are a few of my favorite tips to make sure you protect yourself from the sun.
1. Always apply a SPF daily moisturizer in the morning. I use dermalogicia SPF 50 everyday after cleansing my skin.
2. The Suns UV rays are the strongest between 10am and 2 pm, when the sun is highest in the sky.
3. Plan on being in the ocean a lot? Apply hair oil or conditioner before going on the water to help keep hair silky smooth.
4. Drink before you are thirsty. You may not realize your body is dehydrated, so it is always important to constantly stay hydrated, even if you don’t feel like your thirsty! The more water, the better.
Have some fun in the sun!
This weeks fun tip is about your skin!
My tips are usually based around our skin, and that is because having healthy skin is important and it boosts confidence! I’m going to share a few tips that I have learned throughout the years that seem to help. 🙂
Always wash your face in the morning and night. Do not sleep in your makeup ever! If you had a long night and are too lazy to wash your face with a cleanser, at least use a face wipe. I have learned from past experience that going to bed without washing your face can easily cause a breakout in the morning.
Allow each serum to completely set before applying another. For my daily skin care routine I use a lot of different items. So if you apply multiple serums make sure to let each individual serum sit on your skin for at least a full minute before applying your moisturizer or another serum. This allows your skin to absorb more of the good stuff.
Use a serum! If you do not use a serum, you should! They are great ways to target specific problem areas with your skin. I believe the serum is one of the most important parts to my skincare routine. I tend to use a brightening serum to reduce any discoloration on my skin. But they have serums to target any problem you may have with your skin.
Everyone knows this, but always wear a SPF. I use SPF15 every single day, wether I am going to be outside or not. I have a fairly darker skin complexion so I tend to use a lower SPF, but any bit helps! Wearing SPF will help protect your fragile skin from the sun, and It helps protect your skin from aging as fast. ( I luckily do not have that problem yet)
I hope you found these tips helpful! I know a few may be some pretty common things heard around the beauty world, but they really do make a difference!
