It may feel too early to start thinking about summer hair and beauty preparations, but the earlier you start the better the results you will get.
After all, when it comes to achieving perfect skin and hair, it is all about the long-term techniques that genuinely make changes. We have listed the nine best ways to ensure you will be summer ready:
1. Drink lots of water.
It’s not a myth, drinking water really is one of the best ways to maintain healthy skin and hair! Your body loses water every day so you need to replace it to ensure you stay hydrated. And remember, dry hair can snap easier. With this in mind, it’s even more important to stay hydrated to maintain your hair’s strength and an added bonus is that your skin will also glow as a result.
2. Moisturise, then moisturise again.
Moisturising daily is often overlooked and people typically only moisturise once or twice a week however, to see the best results you should moisturise every day. You should always moisturise after washing, shaving or exfoliating as these beauty tasks commonly remove hydration and healthy oils from your skin that can leave it looking dry.
3. Speaking of Exfoliating…
Our skin can get clogged up leaving layers of dead skin cells that create a dry appearance, exfoliating reveals the fresh cells and leaves your skin looking glowing and healthy. It can also boost blood circulation, allowing new cells to come through healthier than ever before!
4. Take Skin and Hair Supplements
It can be hard to ensure you are getting all the correct nutrients and vitamins into your diet however, healthy hair needs key vitamins such as biotin and often the best way to ensure you are getting enough is to use a supplement. You can get supplements for a range of purposes such as hair growth, thicker hair, brittle nails etc so they are perfect for anyone.
5. Make sure your diet includes lots of Nuts and Seeds
Even if you are taking supplements you can still absorb a lot of goodness from them that help to protect and aid your skin and hair. Walnuts, Chia Seeds, Almonds and Flaxseeds are the best as they contain lots of omega-3’s!
6. Visit your Hairdresser for regular trims
You should aim to get your hair cut every 6-8 weeks as it helps to remove any split ends and other signs of damage that will instantly leave you with healthier looking hair. It can also promote hair growth!
7. Always protect your hair
As the old saying goes ‘prevention is better than cure’. If you want to have healthy hair you need to ensure that you are not damaging it to be begin with. Use a heat defence spray when using any styling tools and use a SPF shampoo when you are in the sun.
8. Take Preventative measures
Using a hair mask once a week can also restore and replace lost nutrients – instantly returning a healthy, natural shine.
