In his book, The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” And we can’t help but agree with that! That’s why this summer we want you to feel great and live your best life.
1. Use baby powder as a deodorant.
Try putting some baby powder on your underarms to prevent odor and wetness. It’s made from pure cornstarch (which you also can use if you don’t want to pay more for the name brand baby powder) and has excellent absorbing qualities. You can also put some in your shoes if your feet tend to sweat and smell.
2. Coconut oil
Want to get in the pool but are worried about your hair drying out from the chlorine? Here is the solution: Before going in the pool, put some coconut oil on your hair. This will add a nice shine and will prevent the hair from getting gross and dry.
3. Darker foundation
Getting tan in the summer is inevitable, but buying a new foundation shade each time you grow a shade darker is not. Simply add some liquid bronzer into your foundation before application and blend it well until you have the shade that matches your skin.
4. Coffee ice
Hot summers call for cold drinks! How many of you enjoy starting your day with a refreshing glass of ice coffee? And how many of us wish it wasn’t watered down with tons of ice? To avoid this, you can just pour regular black coffee in an ice cube tray, freeze it, and use these instead of regular ice.
