Summer is that time of the year when you just can’t sit indoors. Because if you did so, you’ll be missing out on so much! Who doesn’t like the pool parties and beach fests? And how can you forget the gorgeous tan that makes you look like a bronzed goddess? While summer has so many things to offer you, it might pose a hindrance to your daily beauty routine. The sweat, the dust, and the tan that you don’t like are all the undesirable things that the hot weather brings in. But does that mean you shouldn’t enjoy the best of the season? Of course not! This is why Stylecraze has got you a bunch of hacks that will come handy during the summer. So, let’s dive in!
1. Baby Powder Is Not Just For Babies
Baby powder is mild on your skin but effective in absorbing extra moisture. Because of this quality, this powder can be sprinkled on to your body after a fun evening at the beach. It will absorb the moisture on your skin so that you can brush away the sand that usually gets stuck in your hair and skin. Yes, it may feel weird to throw in more of a powdery thing when you already have sand covered all over your body, but trust us because it works! Baby powder can also be used as a dry shampoo since it absorbs the sweat on your scalp and it prevents it from getting sticky in the hot season.
2. Apply Deodorant On Your Neck Before Blow Drying
Summer is fun but it brings in a lot of humidity into the atmosphere. It can make your hair puffy which why you’d probably want to blow dry it after every wash. But blow drying itself can make you sweat and this sweat can mix with your clean dry hair to make it look sticky within minutes. To not let your effort go down the drain, you can apply some powder deodorant behind your neck so that it absorbs the sweat before it reaches the hair.
3. Use Baking Soda To Correct Tanning Mistakes
Getting tanned under the sun is the best and the most natural way to get the beauty browns. However, the sun can cause a lot of damage to your skin including sunburns and triggering signs of aging like spots and wrinkles. Also, if you don’t like to go out and get all sweaty but you still fancy getting tanned skin you can always get tanned indoors using self-tanner methods. But it’s hard to get self-tanning right and that’s why you need to know this amazing hack. Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply it on the areas that look streaky or have noticeably odd patches. Now, gently exfoliate your skin with it. This paste also helps to even out the color in areas that look too orange.
4.Apply Dry Shampoo Before You Go To Bed
Summers can make you sweat while you’re asleep. This is particularly true for your scalp and you might wake up with the hairstyle of Professor Snape from Harry Potter—greasy and sticky. Eww! That’s definitely not good but there is a way you can save yourselves from this horror. Apply a bit of dry shampoo on to your scalp before you go to bed and it will absorb the sweat through the night. Also, remember to use a mild shampoo that won’t harm your scalp.
5. Use Aloe Vera Gel Cubes For Sunburns
Cut open a few fresh leaves of aloe vera and scoop out the gel. Now blend them in a mixer grinder and pour the juice in your ice trays. You can use these aloe ice cubes on sunburned skin to get instant relief from the inflammation. Even if you’re not sunburned, these cubes can be simply rubbed on your skin as a moisturizer.
6. Squeeze Lemon Juice On Sweat Stains
Summer is the time when you give your blacks and browns a break. Light colored clothes and white shirts are all the favorites of the season. But they are prone to sweat stains making the underarm and groin areas yellow and dirty. To prevent this from happening, squeeze a few drops of lemon juice onto these dirty areas of your garment and wait for a few minutes before putting the clothes in for laundry.
7. Refrigerate Your Nail Polish
Yes, that’s right. You’ve got to move your stuff around in your fridge to make space for your nail colors during the summers. The heat makes air bubbles to form in your nail polish and these tiny bubbles can ruin your manicure. Also, refrigerating your nail colors will extend their shelf-life.
