FOR TEENS - BEAUTY TIPS
 
SUMMER SPECIAL

Summer is a time to relax and rejuvenate. At the same time, summer sun can be very harsh on your soft skin and deep fry your natural looks. The only way to escape the blistering sun is to soak yourself in water. Splash water on you as frequently as possible. While enjoying the hot, lazy summer, keep in mind that different beauty rules apply. Here are a few tips to keep you looking as good as you feel :

GO MOIST
Moisturisation is the most important part of daily skin care. Although you must buy a water-based moisturizer, you need to work out your skin's needs. May be just plain water works for you. Herbal beauticians say that flower-based lotions like rose water or cucumber water {made by diluting cucumber juice with water} can be sprayed on the face to tone and refresh it. You need to cool these tonics in the fridge before use. Besides this, makes a habit of splashing your face gently with water for instant freshness. You can splash as many as 20 times. But do not use very hot or very cold water on your skin. Steam face regularly to release dirt {5 minutes for dry skin and 10 minutes if it is oily}. Pat dry with tissue and moisturize. Moisturizers should be used damp on the skin. This seals in the water and helps skin to hold the moisture better. Make sure that you are adequately hydrated - at least 8 glasses of water a day even more when you are outside.
FEET FETISH
Your feet also need adequate care this season. Keeping both hands and feet clean with a liberal use of soap and water (followed by a moisturizer) is a grooming must. Soaking feet and hands helps to get rid of fatigue, more so if you add a pinch of salt to the water you use. This softens the dry, dead skin around your soles, easing its removal. Soak feet for 15-20 minutes once a week.
 
 
HAIR CARE
Summer sun and humidity can damage your hair's cuticle and result in dry, drab, split, brittle or frizzy hair and ends. Sunlight can be just as damaging as a hot blow dryer. Naturally curly hair is often a major victim to summer frizzies. Consider washing your hair less often during the summer months to allow your hair to absorbe more moisture. When possible, finish with a cool to cold rinse to seal the hair cuticle and impart natural shine.
TIPS
  • Drink at least 15 glasses of water a day.
  • Mix the fruit juice of your choice with mineral water for a healthy soda.
  • Use water as mouth freshner along with a sprig of mint, honey and lime.
  • Make a compress for dry, flaky, irritating using water. Use gauze dipped in tolerably cold water. Apply on affected are and leave on for 10 minutes.
  • Walk bare foot on grass immere your legs in cold water up to the knees. This increases resistance to illness. With water, remember, more is always better.
  • Accentuate your glowing skin by brushing on a light shimmering powder instead of a heavy foundation. You don't want to appear like you are melting under the hot sun.
  • Try a light shimmering eye shadow in beige just under your brow bone to draw attention to your eyes.
  • If you use mascara, try a waterproof. This way you will avoid those scary looks when you are perspiring or near water. Carry an eye make-up remover, or else you really will end up with the dreaded dark circles.
  • Summer is good time for those creamy lipsticks. Reserve the darker shades for evenings. Prefer glossy light ones that are perfect for the nude look.
