Summer Skin and Hair Saviours!

Summer can be ruthless to hair and skin, from the heat and humidity frizzing up you hair, to dry, sun burnt skin. These products keep my otherwise frizzled hair bouncy and soft, and keep my skin clear and soft. These are products that have saved my skin from drying out and hair from breaking. Let me talk you through my Summer Saviours!

1) Born Lippy Lip Balm / The Body Shop - This is a super soft feather light lip balm with a very minute pink tint. It has a slight berry flavour but not overpowering. It's compact design is ideal for carrying around with you, which is what you want with lip balm.

2) Rub Rub Rub Sea Salt Scrub / Lush - This is a dual attack product for body and hair. Scrub it on your skin before you get in the shower and wash it off for silky smooth skin all over. Exfoliating before and after tanning will help your tan stay, you aren't going to scrub it off it will stay. But if you take a hand full and scrub it through your hair, rinse it out and then blow dry while scrunching for beautifully beach tousled hair. 

3) Oz Heat Defence Spray / Oz Botanics - This has helped me avoid split ends and kept it light and bouncy. You simply spray on, comb through and blow dry and use your heated appliances as normal.

4) Detoxifying Dead Sea Mud Mask / Superdrug - For those bad skin days. This mask purifies and eliminates black heads. After one treatment skin feels softer and clearer. Use this along side an episode of your favourite sit-com (Friends and Whitney are favourites of mine!)

5) Umberto Giannini Overnight Beauty Moisture Balm / Boots - This is the busy girl's dream come true! No having to sit with it for half an hour, no rinsing out later, no blow dry out, nothing. Simply slop some on and comb through before bed, sleep on it and moisture, shine and lusciousness is restored. 

6) Soap and Glory Heel Genius / Boots - Now I wear heels everyday at work, that's 40 hours a week on stiletto points, and believe me, your feet ache and you get tough skin and it can all be a bit gross. but massaging this turquoise-green lotion on them at the end of the day relives the pains in my arches and keeps the skin soft. Pop on some socks before you sleep to let it really soak in.

7) Umberto Giannini Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray / Boots - For those a quick beachy look just spray on, work in and go. This is also ideal for creating and instant  matte look for nights out and parties.

8) Soap and Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion / Boots - Skin takes a battering in the summer. We have more of it out and on show, it gets sun damaged, even when we don't realise it. It dries out and needs some TLC. This is a silky moisturiser in a pump out bottle making it easy to apply. After you shower, squirt some out and slather it on. If your skin is anything like mine it will drink it up and this non greasy formula is fantastic.

If your hair or skin is in need of some loving these are the products I recommend, and I hope these help you when you need them. They have helped me fantastically, and I will continue to use them.
