Top 5 Summer Beauty Saviours

As much as we're all excited about summer that brings carefree and relaxing days, lying on the beach and soaking in the sea.. it also have some bad concequences, especially for your face and hair. The heat dries out your skin, so it's very important to give the latter some extra care. To this end, I'm sharing with you my top 5 summer beauty essentials.

 
The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask
Due to the heat, it's important to nourish your skin with moisture. Since daily cream usually isn't enough, it's a good idea to apply moisturizing mask from time to time. Tea tree mask calms the skin and restores moisture immediately after application, as well as reduces redness. Tea tree is known for its many healing features, it works against dandruff and acne as well as it helps with irritated skin.

Application: I usually apply the mask three times a week and leave it on my face for about 15 minutes till it dries completely. I then wash it with warm water. The result is smooth, fresh and even skin.

Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera 100% Gel
100% Aloe Vera gel is my most essential product in the summer, since it can be used for more or less anything- as a lotion for skin firming, medicine for wound healing, moisturizing after-sun cream or even shaving and hair styling gel. It's fragrance free and doesn't contain alcohol or any added color. It absorbs into your skin very quickly. The non-greasy soothing structure works with all types of burns, bruises, problems with dry skin and even blisters. It can also be used as a face primer, since it evens out the skin and creates smooth surface. Definitely N°1 must-have item of the summer!

Application
: Apply liberally to irritated skin as needed.

Redken Real Control Intense Renewal mask
Like the skin, hair also requires extra protection in summer months. I have very thin and damaged hair that gets even worse in summer. This is why I use reneval mask which gives my hair more strenght, volume and shine and is suitable for dull, dry and colored hair. It contains shea butter and smells really good.
Application: I apply mask after shampooing on dried hair in combination with Diamond Oil. I leave it in for 15-20 minutes and then wash and dry my hair as usual. The results can be seen very quicky, my hair looks stronger and healthier.

Redken Diamond Oil
We've all heard of Maroccanoil, right? I've tried it and have to say that was quite impressed with the result, but in my opinion Diamond Oil works even better. It comes in a beautiful diamond-shape glass bottle of 100ml (which lasts forever) and contains handy applicator. Oh, and it smells heavenly! It's not too oily and doesn't weight your hair at all. You can see the results (=shiny and healthy hair) immediately. It's quite expensive, but definitely worth the money.
Application: I pour a few drops of oil in my hand and mix it with a reneval mask. Sometimes I also use it individually only on the tips of my hair and leave it in overnight, then rinse.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer
Since I'm one of those people with pale skin that never turns brown, sometimes I gotta fake tan with self-tanning products. And believe me, it's not easy to find a good one. I've tried many different ones, from sprays to creams, from expensive to cheap ones, from those that left stains on my clothes and to those that created 'beautiful' patterns on my legs. However, a month ago I ran into Garnier Ambre Solaire, which was in a convenient small package and at a very affordable price. My hopes weren't large, but I was positively surprised with the product. Self-tanning effect is seen in a very short time and the cream doesn't leave any stains, but creates an even tan.

Application: I usually apply the cream before bedtime and leave it overnight. In the morning I take a shower to wash off the unpleasant smell (the only bad thing about this cream). Don't worry, the fake tan doesn't wash off, but retains on the skin up to one week.

Čeprav smo vsi še kako navdušeni nad poletjem, ki s seboj prinaša brezskrbne in sproščene dni, poležavanje na plaži in nastavljanje sončnim žarkom, pa ima slednje tudi slabe posledice. Sonce in vročina namreč izsušita našo kožo in lase, zato moramo slednjima poleti nameniti dodatno nego. S tem namenom z vami delim mojih 5 najljubših lepotnih izdelkov, ki mi pomagajo ohranjati zdrav in svež videz v vročih poletnih dneh.

The Body Shop maska za obraz iz čajevca
Zaradi vročine, makeupa in pomanjkanja tekočine se koža na obrazu izsuši, zato je pomembno, da jo v vročih dneh še dodatno nahranimo z vlago. Ker dnevne kreme običajno ne zadostujejo, je dobro na nekaj dni na obraz nanesti osvežilno masko. Maska iz čajevca kožo že takoj po nanosu umiri in ji povrne vlago, prav tako pa odpravi rdečico. Čajevec je znan po številnih zdravilnih učinkih, med drugim deluje proti prhljaju in mozoljem ter pomaga pri vneti koži.

Uporaba: Masko uporabljam približno trikrat na teden in jo pustim na obrazu delovati 15 minut oz. tako dolgo, da se popolnoma posuši, nato pa jo sperem z mlačno vodo. Koža je po nanosu gladka, sveža in enakomerna.

Fruit of the Earth 100% aloe vera gel

100% gel aloe vera je moj nepogrešljiv izdelek v poletnih mesecih, saj ga je mogoče uporabiti na tisoč in en način! Služi kot losjon za učvrstitev kože, zdravilo za celjenje ran, vlažilna krema po sončenju ali primer. Ne vsebuje alkohola in je brez dodatnih barvil, narejen pa je iz sredice svežih listov aloe vere. Se hitro vpije in zadržuje vlago ter pospešuje celjenje, zato je primeren kot zdravilo za kakršnekoli rane. Nemastna struktura deluje blažilno pri vseh vrstah opeklin, odrgninah, težavah s suho kožo in celo pri žuljih. Mogoče ga je uporabljati tudi kot primer, saj kožo napne, naredi gladko in jo pripravi na nanos makeupa. Definitivno must-have izdelek poletja!

Uporaba: Neskončna! ;)

Redken Real Control Intense Renewal mask za lase
Tako kot koža, tudi lasje v poletnih mesecih potrebujejo dodatno zaščito. Obnovitvena maska lasem povrne moč, volumen in sijaj in je primerna predvsem za suhe, barvane lase, brez leska. Vsebuje karitejevo maslo in las ne obteži.

Uporaba: Masko po šamponiranju nanesem na vlažne lase in jo v kombinaciji z Diamond oljem pustim delovati 15-20 minut. Sperem in posušim lase kot običajno, ti pa so po nanosu videti veliko bolj zdravi in močni.

Redken Diamond Oil
Diamond Oil je podoben (popularnemu) Maroccanoil olju, vendar po mojem mnenju še boljši. Las ne oteži, ampak jim povrne sijaj, vsebuje priročni aplikator, steklenička s 100ml pa zadostuje za leto ali še več. Aja, pa še omamno diši!

Uporaba: Olje uporabljam tako, da nekaj kapljic kanem v dlan in zmešam z obnovitveno masko ter nanesem na lase. Včasih ga uporabim tudi posamično samo na konicah las in pustim delovati čez noč, zjutraj pa sperem.

Garnier Ambre Solaire samoporjavitvena krema
Ker sama spadam med tiste z bolj svetlo potjo, je včasih potrebno malo 'goljufat' in s pomočjo samoporjavitvenih izdelkov pričarati videz zagorelosti. Preizkusila sem jih že ogromno- od sprejev do krem, od dragih do poceni, takih, ki niso delovali samo na mojo kožo, ampak tudi na obleke, pa do takih, ki so na mojih nogah ustvarili čudovite lisaste vzorce. Ja, ni lahko najti dober samoporjavitveni izdelek, povrhu vsega pa imajo vsi še tisti značilni nič kaj prijeten vonj. Pred mesecem pa sem v drogeriji naletela na Garnier Ambre Solaire, ki je bil v priročno majhni embalaži in po zelo ugodni ceni. Moji upi niso bili veliki, vendar me je izdelek pozitivno presenetil. Samoporjavitveni učinek je viden v zelo kratkem času, krema pa ne pusti nobenih lis, ampak se enakomerno porazdeli po površini.

Uporaba: Kremo najraje enakomerno nanesem na kožo pred spanjem in jo pustim delovati čez noč, zjutraj pa se stuširam, da sperem tisti neprijetni vonj (edina slaba lastnost te kreme). Brez skrbi, izdelek se ne spere, videz porjavelosti pa se ohrani tudi do enega tedna.

Kateri pa so tvoji lepotni izdelki, brez katerih v poletnih mesecih enostavno ne moreš?
