Natural Summer Beauty Tips

It always seems that when summer approaches, we want to get beach-ready.  I am a big label-reader, so that means stepping up my beauty routine, but without the chemicals!

~ Sunless tanner (and a natural sunscreen!) ~

I love a good tan, but I limit my sun exposure.  I use lots of sunscreen, making sure it is natural.

To make up for the lack of tan, I use a sunless tanner.  There are natural sunless tanners on the market so that you can avoid the sun exposure and chemicals.

~ Natural nail polish ~

Most nail polishes are full of chemicals.  Look for natural brands that are free of things like toulene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl phthalate (DBP).  Skip the chemicals (many of which are banned in other countries and are known carcinogens) and go for a more natural nail care routine.

~ Hello Whitening Toothpaste ~

There was a time I loved whitening strips and other chemicals, but I have found it is easy to whiten my teeth without the chemicals.  The Hello toothpaste brand has lots of great toothpastes that aren’t full of dyes and chemicals, including a great whitening formula.  It actually works, and bonus – it doesn’t bother my sensitive teeth (and the pure mint flavor is great).

~ Eat healthy & drink lots of water ~

This one is pretty straightforward – you are what you eat!  The healthier you eat, it will show!  Skip sugary drinks and opt for water, which will help cleanse and hydrate.

~ Exfoliate & Moisturize with Coconut Oil ~

Exfoliating is a must before using any self tanner, and the combination of exfoliating and using coconut oil will make your skin smooth.  It helps with things like preventing ingrown hairs when shaving.  Focus on areas like heels and toes.  I have a pumice stone and I love it.

~ Supplements ~

If you don’t already take supplements, stay on top of getting nutrients (even with balanced diet) at least with a multivitamin.  There are plenty of supplements out there for general health, beauty, hair, skin, and nails.  For example, collagen, which is wonderful for not just skin, but joints.  A hair, skin and nails formula will contain biotin and other ingredients.
