Although it’s Autumn at the moment here in Australia, during the day it’s still nice and hot. It’s actually still the perfect weather for the beach and pool. And I know a lot of you from all over the world are just about to go into Summer. So, today I wanted to share some beauty hacks so you can all go to the beach looking fab and leave the beach STILL looking fab!
PRE BEACH: COLD WATER RINSE BEFORE POOL
To make your hair look fresh and healthy afterwards, if you’re planning on swimming in chlorine, rinse off your hair in cold water before you go into the pool. This will help your strands soak up the fresh water instead of the chemicals in the pool.
PRE BEACH: FIGHT FRIZZ WITH COCONUT OIL
Every time I get out of the beach and let my hair air dry, my hair goes frizzy, thick and unmanageable. If that sounds like you as well, here’s a simple trick for you to do so your hair is super smooth and nice after jumping in the water! Lather on some coconut oil through your strands before jumping in the water to keep help your locks stay healthy and smooth after you get out of the beach.
I don’t know if anyone does wear perfume to the beach but I do know most people pack some deodorant in the bags for post beach. If you’re planning on staying in the beach long, using an eau de toilette on your pulse points is a great way to make the scent stay on for much longer. Rub some vaseline on your pulse points and then spray the fragrance for it to last much longer! My personal fave – Marc Jacob’s Eau De Toilette. I spray this onto my pulse points – wrists, behind my knees, behind my ears and on my neck to smell good all day errrry day.
FREE SAND EXFOLIATION
You know those expensive coffee scrubs you hesitate to buy because it’s super expensive but sounds SOO good? Well here’s a way to get FREE exfoliation at the beach. Sand is a great exfoliator for your body (not face though!) to remove the dead skin cells, increase circulation and much more. If you are at the beach, rub some of the sand onto your hands, legs and body for an instant exfoliation and radiant glow afterwards!
POST BEACH: SMOOTH AND SILKY HAIR WITH MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL
Now if you forget the coconut oil trick before jumping into the water, don’t fret! Argan Oil is a great post beach hair treatment. It contains great benefits for your hair and keeps your hair looking luscious and fab! Post beach, comb some Argan Oil through your strands to stop your hair from frizzing up after a day in the salty or chlorine water.
