9 Tips to Get You Ready for Summer 2018

Summer is around the corner and we want you to be prepared.  

From skincare to hair care and everything in between...

  1. Sunscreen

You should be using sunscreen year-round to protect from the suns harmful UV rays but if you haven't been, now is definitely the time to start.

Look for a mineral based sunscreen rather than a chemical-based sunscreen. 

  1. Moisturize

Many people think that now that Winter is over there is no need to moisturize. This is incorrect, the heat and sunshine can cause dry, dehydrated and dull skin. To make sure your skin looks fresh and summer ready keep moisturizing.

You may want to look into a different formula for summer. O Naturals has a gentle day cream that is filled with natural and organic ingredients like Hemp Seed Oil and Shea Butter which is perfect for the Summer and all year round.

  1. Drink, Drink Drink

On the topic of dehydration... don't forget to drink water. It is one of the most important things you can do for your skin and body.

Ideally, in the Summer you should be drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day but you can mix it up with fresh juices and high water concentration fruits and vegetables.

  1. Hair Care

Not only can your skin become damaged and dry from too much exposure to the sun. Your hair may also suffer. The Sun can strip moisture and cause your hair to dry out and become brittle.

We recommend investing in some high-quality essential oils such as Argan Oil or Jojoba Oil and applying them directly to your hair regularly to keep moisture locked in.

If you are looking for a super budget hair treatment you can crack an egg, whisk it and apply the mixture to your scalp and work it down the hair strands. Do this 2-3 times a month and you should see a difference.  

  1. Dream Big and Act on It

So you have been planning that dream vacation since you can remember. Splurge and do it, you deserve it. Don't wait until the Summer is over to finalize your plans.

Vacations are great to relax and unwind or to explore and have the best adventures of your life. Whatever your dream vacation looks like we say go for it! Remember Summer only come once... a year.

  1. Aromatherapy

Besides for making your home smell wonderful Aromatherapy is said to have many therapeutic benefits. We all know (all too well) that during the change in the season there is a spike in Colds, causing stuffy noses and an overall feeling of unwellness. Many believe using a diffuser with high quality and natural essential oils can prevent and lessen the symptoms of the Common Cold.

Lemon and Lemongrass essentials oils are a great choice as the fresh citrus scent will get you ready for the summer while the therapeutic properties can work their magic.

  1. Clothes

Whether it be a new swimsuit or a or a whole new outfit, Summer is the perfect time to update your wardrobe.

Some of our favorite fashion trends for the coming season are bold primary colors, pastels and floral prints.

  1. No Smudges

Invest in a quality waterproof mascara!

With the increasing heat comes perspiration. Every skin cell in your body releases water in the heat. This includes the skin on your face, even the delicate area around your eyes.

To avoid looking like a panda we strongly suggest investing in a quality waterproof mascara.

Remember to look for a product with all natural ingredients that is cruelty-free.  

  1. Stay Fresh

Speaking of perspiration, it doesn't only cause your mascara to smudge but can cause some other pretty unpleasant side effects. To avoid this and keep yourself smelling fresh and clean invest in a good deodorant. For those concerned about the potentially harmful effects of ingredients like aluminum, you needn't worry. Today you can find an abundance of natural deodorizing products in most drug stores.

You can even make your own natural deodorant based on Coconut Oil.
