Now grab a chilled can of juice while we take you through absorbing ways to celebrate life in soaring temperatures.
If your hair locks are putting a dull and lifeless picture, use coconut oil. It is one remedy American TV star Khloe Kardashian agrees. Says she, “I massage it into my scalp, leave it in for an hour, then wash it out. Or I’ll leave it in overnight with a bandana so it doesn’t get on my sheets. It’s made my hair grow much faster!”
Chamomile Tea Bags
Rashes and red spots are bound to happen in the intimate areas after doing bikini line wax. Use chamomile tea bags to soothe the skin rashes.
If your skin has got its rough of sand and sun on a beach, sprinkle baby powder on your feet, legs or for that matter anywhere else on your body where the sand has got stuck. The powder will absorb the skin moisture (reason for the sand sticking to you) easily. This will help you to wipe off the sand quickly and efficiently.
Before blow drying your hair, sprinkle some deodorant on the back of your neck. This will help to avoid sweating out and will cast an antiperspirant effect.
The sweating level during the night time in summers is anybody’s guess. Apply dry shampoo before going off to sleep. This will help it absorb the oil and perspiration which is likely to happen during the night.
One of the natural ways to soothe out sunburned skin is aloe vera. Fill up an ice try with the gel of aloe vera and put in the freezer all throughout the summer. From time to time, apply the aloe ice cube on the affected skin to get instant relief
If you thought lemon juice was good only as a drink, think again. Sweating out in summers leaves nasty stains on your clothes. Do away with them by squeezing lemon juice on the sweat-stained clothes before you push them in the laundry. It is the acidity of the lemon that lifts the pesky stains from shirts especially.
Oatmeal for poison ivy
Simply grind 1 cup oatmeal in your blender until it is a fine powder, then pour it into a piece of cheesecloth or an old pantyhose. Knot the material and tie it around the faucet of your bathtub so the bag is suspended under the running water. Fill the tub with lukewarm water and soak in it for 30 minutes.
Vinegar for sunburn
Vinegar contains acetic acid, one of the components of aspirin. It can help ease sunburn pain, itching, and inflammation. Soak a few sheets of paper towels in white vinegar, and apply them to the burned areas. Leave them on until the towels are dry.
Summers bring bugs too. What you need is a good repellent. In order to do so, rub dryer sheets all over your clothes. The scent will be sufficient enough to repel bugs.
Some of these ideas might sound crazy but they are genuine and effective beauty hacks that will make survival in summers easy. Try them out.
