1.) Silk Pillowcase-

Consider this an excuse to splurge on fancy new pillowcases! Ever since I bought my silk pillow cases I have noticed it has done wonders for my skin and my hair!

Silk is natural material that is hypoallergenic (which is really good) and also is packed with amino acids. Because of this it absorbs moisture and adjusts to all temperatures which means your skin won’t be sticking to a sweaty pillowcase and accumulating pore-clogging oils. Your hair will stay soft and static free as you snooze away to dream land!

2.) Water Purifiers 

Unfiltered, hard water contains tons of chlorine and toxins, which can really take their toll on your skin and strands. This is why water purifiers in the form of showerheads filters are huge! You will definitely see a huge improvement in your hair and skin! This is a MUST!

3.) Vaseline – all-purpose beauty product

Smooth flyways – I always have my mini Vaseline container with me at all times, everywhere I go there is one sitting beside me. Not only I use it moisture my lips and cuticle it’s great to tame frizz and seal dry spilt ends it is also great to keep unruly eyebrows in place.

Instant Highlighter – Swap your highlighter for Vaseline. Just dab a small amount on the high points of your face for a dewy, naturally luminous glow. Slide a bit down your shins to make your legs glow too.

I literally have three types of hairstyles straight, wavy and homeless. I have never been good at styling my own hair, I get bored, my arms get tired and I end up giving up. My hair is pretty fine but I have a lot of it. If I shower and let my hair dry it’s have a slight wavy but for the most part it’s pretty straight. But lately I have been styling my hair wavy and it’s so easy and perfect for summer. All you do is spritz sea salt stray into your hair with some water to dampen it. Then grab all your hair at the back, divide it into two sections, twist the two sections around each other and when you reach the end, just roll the twisted hair into a bun and secure it with a band.

Make sure it’s tight even if it’s not perfect. Let the bun be for a minimum of two hours. Open the bun and separate your curls gently, scrunch it with some mousse if you so desire and you’re ready to hit the beach!

DIY Sea-Salt Spray Ingredients

– 1 cup warm water

– 1 Tbsp. sea salt

– 1 tsp Epsom salt

– 1 Tbsp. organic coconut oil

– 5 drops essential oil, optional

You’re going to need to start out with very warm water, preferably heated on the stove to nearly (but not quite) boiling. Next, add the sea salt and Epsom salt and stir until they are dissolved. When the salt is dissolved, add one tablespoon of organic coconut oil. You’ll have to stir it until it is melted completely. If you want to add essential oil for scent (I love adding peppermint oil) add five drops at the end. Mix well, and then pour into a spray bottle. Let me know some of your go to looks down below!
