Seal in Skin’s Moisture with Nourish & Shine

0 Comments

nourish-and-shine

The best part of summer is spending days outside on the beach, at barbecues and in the pool. Unfortunately, soaking up the sun’s rays and chlorine damages our skin; this damage shows up in your complexion by fall. Experiencing dull and rough from a summer of outdoor activities? Exfoliation is needed prior to moisturizing as the skin is dehydrated and covered in dryness. (eeeek!)

Start with a homemade pumpkin sugar scrub to slough off dead skin cells; this will allow for your skin to absorb the natural butters, vitamins and essential oils in Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine. Adding pumpkin to your scrub will assist your skin in recovering; the enzymes in pumpkin pulp dissolve dull, dead cells to reveal healthy radiant skin underneath. Try this recipe:

sugar-scrub

  • 1/2 cup organic pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Add a small amount of powdered cinnamon, clove, or a drop of vanilla – all three can scents can also be added as essential oils, but just use a drop or two

Mix all ingredients in a clean, unbreakable bowl with a spoon. Apply generously to your body during your shower or bath, rinse well. Dry off completely and hydrate your skin with Nourish & Shine to seal in moisture…your skin will thank you!

Enjoy your weekend.

End-of-Summer Hair Refresher

0 Comments

We all love the carefree, laid-back vibe of summer – especially when it comes to beauty. Simple, light and quick; the summer is all about embracing yourself in the moment in order to not waste a single moment of sunshine! The downfall starts to rear its ugly head at the end of the season; all of the sun, saltwater and chlorine has been wreaking havoc on your hair. What can you do help your hair bounce back for the upcoming fall season?

 

Follow these tips:

1.             Trim Those Ends

Trimming your ends is critical after the summer months! Heat and sun can really frazzle your mane, particularly the ends of hair which are constantly exposed to the sizzling elements.

2.             Replenish Moisture

Can’t stress this enough… make time for a deep conditioning treatment, with heat! You don’t even need to see a professional for this task; use Jane Carter Solution Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner followed by Jane Carter Solution Hydrate Quench.

3.             Remove Build Up 

Swimmers aren’t the only ones who need to worry about chlorine build-up; ordinary tap water deposits chlorine and other minerals in your hair along with styling products and your scalp’s natural oils can build up and weigh hair down. Combat this residue with Jane Carter Solution Hydrating Invigorating Shampoo SLS-Free.

4.             Chop it Up

Feeling blah about your hair as you’ve let it grow out during your easy, breezy, carefree summer? Spice things up with a few face-framing layers and/or longer layers throughout, which will give your hair that oomph and movement you’re looking for come fall.

5.             New Season, New Trick

Flip through magazines, blogs, Instargram and Pinterest for a new fall style; nothing like a new style trick up your sleeve to kick start the season. Try a new updo, or twist out or hair accessory; step outside of the box for funky fall fun.

 

With summer almost over, it’s time to switch gears and get ready for the cool weather by repairing the damage acquired during the summer months. You’re on the path to healthy tresses!

Summer Hair Hydration

0 Comments

Hair needs to be protected from chlorine, sea salt, and the sun. Chlorine and salt water will dry, discolor, and damage your hair – chlorine binds to your hair, filling in gaps in the hair shaft while the minerals in salt water can make your hair brassy and brittle. The results? SEVERE DEHYDRATION!

The following steps will protect your hair until you get home or back to your hotel room if vacationing.

  1. Before diving in, completely wet hair with water and Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner.
  2. Apply a thin layer of Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner.
  3. Dive in!
  4. Immediately rinse hair thoroughly with water and rehydrate with Quench until you are able to shampoo and condition later that same day.

After a day of sun and swimming, I recommend doing the following to take care of your hair and scalp:

The goal is to hydrate, hydrate, and then hydrate some more! It’s imperative to steer clear of synthetic oils such as mineral and/or petrolatum oil, as they further dehydrate hair. Also avoid products that contain drying alcohol and sulfates. Remember, hydration is essential in protecting your crowning glory!

Love Your Hair,
