As the end of summer approaches I am realizing the abuse I have put my hair through. SO much sun and lots of days jumping in the ocean. Which I love! But if you are like me and have dry hair, its not the best.
Lately my curly hair has been looking a bit like straw and I have found the perfect hair repair solution-A hair mask. I usually don’t make time to even mask my face but this is one step that makes a huge difference! I can certainly tell if I haven’t been consistent with it.
My absolute favorite mask is from the DevaCurl line called Melt into Moisture . I literally stop people in the streets and go on and on about DevaCurl. It is the only product line I use and it is so large you can still switch it up within the line. I love that they do not use any harsh chemicals of any kind and the price point is excellent. You can (and should!) use this line if you have wavy all the way to super curly hair. It has changed my hair for the better and I am a fan for life. I will link to the other post I wrote about my curly hair routine below but let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. I could talk about this line all day long! ♥
Bringing Curly Back!
For us, this summer has been filled with many beach filled days. There is nothing more uplifting and exhilarating to me as taking a dip in the ocean water. There is research on how the ocean has positive effects on our immune system, healing benefits for certain skin conditions and even just walking barefoot on the sand can be beneficial. This has inspired me to talk about some of my favorite ocean derived skin care ingredients along with a few products I am loving right now.
Red and brown Algaes are hydrating, firming and anti-inflammatory. Different seaweed or algae can have different benefits and are amazing in a skin care routine, especially when combined!
Hyaluronic Sea Serum-Osea
I love the Hyaluronic Sea Serum by Osea. Not only does it firm, tone and provide vitamins and minerals topically, it also uses Hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and protect! This is a great serum for underneath your normal moisturizer day or night.
Detoxfying, stimulating, invirgorating! Sea salt is great for exfoliation and rich in minerals.
Mineral Wellness Soak-Kerstin Florian
These mineral salt crystals are my favorite thing to add to my bath. It helps relieve sore muscles and detoxify the body. I love doing this before bedtime, it has a calming effect and is the perfect at home self care item.
An amazing marine coral which is harvested in the Caribbean. It is healing and amazing for super sensitive skin types. I also love this ingredient for any one who has been in the sun, it is a powerful anti-inflammatory gem!
