The Beauty Closet's 5 Simple Tips for Spring-ready Hair + Bonus Recommended Product & Review from: éprouvage

WANT SPRING-READY HAIR?

USE THESE 5 EASY TIPS:

  1. Start with a fresh cut! Your hair has been battled by Winter weather for the past few months and needs to be trimmed in the very least. This will rid hair of split ends and stimulate growth. Having your hair cut shorter will also aid in keeping you cooler during the warmer season :)
  2. Protect your hair and scalp from the damaging effects of the sun by swapping your daily hair care products for those containing UV protection, like a heat-styling aid or conditioner. Not only will this keep your from damaging your hair, but it will prevent highlights from fading and dryness from occurring.
  3. Avoid the pool or chlorinated water if possible! Water-treatment chemicals tend to dry out your scalp and hair, in addition to creating a chlorine build-up that causes damage and dullness :/ If you do need to hit the pool, use a clarifying shampoo & conditioner; rinse your hair with water immediately following your hair being exposed to chlorine/water-treatment chemicals, if  you don't have the ability to actually wash your hair.
  4. A once-a-week deep conditioning treatment or masque aids in locking in moisture for your scalp and hair, while also keeping your hair looking & feeling healthy and strong. Heat, sun, and water exposure can be trying to your scalp/hair and using a treatment at least one time a week will keep it strong and frizz at bay :)
  5. Drop the creamy, thick formulated hair care products and go for "lighter" products that won't weigh hair down. Try products that are oil-free and look for items that encourage "beach waves" or texturizing. Looking for some great hair care products to get your hair Spring-ready?

THE BEAUTY CLOSET'S RECOMMENDED SPRING HAIR CARE PRODUCTS OF THE MONTH:

 


éprouvage

FORTIFYING SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

$15-16 EA.

I'm quite a fan of Eprouvage hair care products and I've snagged a few at this point, so I was fairly certain I was going to love these as well. I was definitely correct on my assumption...I love them :) This is probably my favorite duo that I've tried from Eprouvage yet! It leaves my hair feeling soft, strong, and looking super healthy! It smells great, with a light and pleasant scent that doesn't annoy.

The conditioner comes with a pump-action nozzle so you can easily get out the right amount of product without making a huge mess- or wasting it! At $15 a piece [$1 more for the conditioner @$16], you aren't going to break the bank at an 8.45 oz bottle size. If you've been looking for a great fortifying hair care duo that doesn't cost a fortune and isn't chalked full of parabens, sulfates, & glutens too :) I recommend both of these products for most hair types!

Use These Awesome 6 Simple Tips to Protect Your Face from Sun Damage + Bonus Recommended Product from The Beauty Closet: Australian Gold Sheer Coverage SPF 45 Faces Sunscreen

by Christina in , , ,


6 EFFORTLESS TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR FACE FROM THE SUN:

  1. One of the easiest ways to protect your head, face, & neck is to wear a nice wide-brimmed hat or a cap. I LOVE the stylish alternative that's also great for protecting hair- Hadry! This unique trendy option is a twist between a cap and a scarf that can be worn in a variety of ways to achieve different looks. Hadry is made out of a material called Humiloc that protects hair and and your head from the elements, while also being water-resistant :) Get your own >here<.
  2. Wear a sun-screen containing makeup and/or moisturizer before stepping outside- this allows for you to enjoy the Spring weather, without worry! Plus, you don't have to slather on regular sunscreen that tends to be packed full of oil-clogging ingredients. Makeup and facial moisturizer that are designed specifically for your face are designed to be oil-free and utilized on the more-sensitive skin of the face! [broad spectrum w/SPF of 15+].
  3. Don't forget your lips and around the eyes! It's usually not a very good idea to pack on products in this are, as they may cause breakouts and irritation. Instead, go for an SPF lip balm; skip the SPF-containing moisturizers around your eyes and go for eye creams that have SPF.
  4. Thinking tanning is okay! It's totally NOT a good idea- not only can it cause skin cancer, but it can bring out freckles, discoloration, and dark spots on the face as well :/ You're also going to see the signs of aging- even with tanning bed exposure and that means wrinkles line prematurely :(
  5. Get an extra boost of protection with a natural supplement! HelioCare contains the power of the Fern with "Fernblock PLE Technology",this awesome natural supplement can be taken daily. HelioCare brings antioxidant power to your skin from the inside out and protects your skin from the very first day that you begin taking it :)
  6. Want to snag a perfect, sun-kissed glow + protect your face and neck from sun damage?! Try a product that contains an instant-bronzer AND a broad spectrum SPF 15+ This means you get a beautiful golden glow without causing damage to your skin and possible skin cancer! Make sure to check out The Beauty Closet's top pick from Australian Gold below:

THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:

 

AUSTRALIAN GOLD

SHEER COVERAGE faces

WITH INSTANT BRONZER

BROAD SPECTRUM SPF45

$9.99

This is a super affordable way to protect your skin AND snag a beautiful glow that you can achieve in a snap :) Not only does this product smell great, but it won't clog pores or cause breakouts! It's curated specifically for your face and is water resistant for up to 80 mins and an broad spectrum SPF of 45. The bronzer is a nice light color that it buildable and will get a couple of shades darker with 3-5 applications.

I like applying a thin layer before I lay down for the night and then when I first get up for the day, I re-apply with a beauty-blender sponge on my entire face and neck areas. It will dry quickly and absorbs into the skin well, but putting this on the night before does allow for the product to fully absorb into your skin ;)

The scent is also fantastic- it's light and pleasant, which I LOVE. There are times when I have come across similar products that don't smell all that wonderful [most likely due to the bronzing & SPF ingredients], yet this Sheer Coverage Faces Sunscreen from Australian Gold doesn't and smells great! I would recommend this product for most skin types and ages- even those with sensitive skin :)
