Make Homemade Lip Balm

You will need coconut oil and essential oils of your choice. Choose something that has a pleasant smell such as Argan oil. Argan oil is also known to treat dry skin.

The process is quite straight forward and easy. Put all the ingredients into a small pot and heat them up on the stove. Make sure that you have a higher amount of coconut oil compared to the essential oil. Don’t make the temperature too high as this could burn quickly and bubble. Bubbling or boiling is not necessary as the oils do not need to cook.

Coconut oil has a different composition as it solidifies as soon as it is exposed to cold or room temperature air as opposed to other oils. By melting it you are allowing the Argan oil to mix into the coconut so that you have a proper consistency when you transfer the liquid to a container.

Before you remove the mixture from the pot you have to make sure that there are no lumps due to the coconut oil. You also have to constantly stir the oils so that they don’t burn the pot.

Now all you have to do is pour the oils into a container. The quickest way to solidify the contents is by placing the mixture in the fridge after pouring it into the container. You shouldn’t have to worry about the coconut oil melting after that point unless you keep it in a hot car or in the sun. During the creation process you will notice how quickly it actually melts.

When making products for yourself at home remember to do a patch test first before using it on a daily basis. Although oils don’t have a high acidity level some people may have a negative reaction.

Know About Conditioner

Condition before you shampoo

Applying the conditioner before the actual shampoo gives the option to improve the body of your hair. A high-quality conditioner is likely to stay in your hair and won’t fully rinse out. A conditioner that is left in the hair after exiting the shower may have the effect of weighting down the hair. This means the all-round volume of the hair is reduced. But, reversing the showering habits you get to whisk away any residue which helps to encourage the better bounce.

Use the right conditioner

No single conditioner is able to give the desired results for everyone. The conditioner is often chosen based on a factor like the texture of the hair. For instance, the volumizing product is great for the thin hair, while a low oil formula is practical for those with greasy, thick hair. Picking the right conditioner can have a significant impact on the appearance of your hair.

Roots should be avoided

It is extremely important to avoid the roots when it comes to conditioning. The best course of action is to start at the tips and slowly work up the length of the hair. The mid-length point is usually far enough to give your hair the hydration it needs.

Working with hair-colored strands

For the ladies who have colored their hair it is usually best to apply a different approach to maintaining the healthy hair. A hair mask is a great way to maintain the color and make sure it stays present in the hair for longer. A high-quality mask has the ability to protect your hair’s cuticle and seal in the color.

Skin Advantages Of Using Night Cream

Without further ado, let’s check out the top benefits:

  1. It moisturizes dry areas of your face and ensures your skin remains hydrated.
  2. It gives your face even complexion and enhanced texture
  3. It fights signs of aging skin. The fine lines and wrinkles on your face will be largely reduced. Your face will look younger over regular usage.
  4. It replenishes the elasticity in your skin
  5. It nourishes your skin and renew damaged cells
  6. Your skin gets softer
  7. It improves blood circulation in skin cells
  8. It relaxes the skin
  9. It increases the collagen level in your facial skin
  10. It helps fight sagging skin

Selecting the right product that suits your skin tone is crucial. Below are a few selection tips:

  • When choosing a night cream for yourself, ensure that the cream is not too thick.
  • A thick nighttime cream clogs your skin pores. It becomes difficult for your skin to breathe.
  • Whenever you choose a night cream, ensure it is fragrance-free and is also hypoallergenic
  • Cleanse your face properly before you applying.
  • Now, take a pea-sized amount of the cream and make dots all over the face using a finger.
  • Next, blend the cream gently. Give your face a massage so the skin can absorb the cream properly.

Don’t apply it on eyelids or else it can cause burning or irritation in eyes.

Perfect Tan Safely

Shop the right sunscreen

There are numerous sunscreen products available out there in form of lotion, gel, and spray. You need to choose your sunblock smartly to ensure effective sun protection. Sunscreen with SPF30 filters 97% of UVB rays, while products with SPF50 filter 98% of UVB rays. For dark Indian skin, SPF15 makes a right choice. In addition to SPF value, look for the phrase ‘broad-spectrum’ while selecting your sunscreen product. We highly recommend Day-Light Protection Sun Screen SPF 50 by Neogen Dermalogy and Sun Protection Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 34 Sunscreen by Shiseido.

Don’t over do

You need not spend hours and hours at a poolside or at a beach to get that dark brown tan. Consistent exposure to the sun in peak hours, mostly between 10 am and 4 pm, can damage your skin and dehydrate your body. You should not spend more than 2-3 hours in the sun. Restricting your tanning time will help you get a beautiful tan without raising the risk of UV damage.

Get even tan

While out in the sun, make sure you turn your body at every 15-30 minutes or keep moving around so as to get even tanning all over your body. You certainly don’t want to have multiple colors on your body. Have an umbrella with you all the time so you can seek some shade whenever needed. Take breaks in between to avoid the risk of sunburns and get the longer lasting suntan.

Always wear summer accessories

Carry your sunglasses, hat, and umbrella to protect your delicate body parts from the harmful effects of UV rays. And make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
