The sun on your skin, the sand in your hands, and the wind in your hair. There is nothing more beautiful than the break of spring that our Universities and culture has laid out for us after the dark depths of winter have swallowed up the happiness the sun brings. With spring break right around the corner (literally as I’m writing this I leave for sunny FL in three days), sunny beauty essentials are something that we of the tundra have been unfamiliar with for quite some time.
Coconut oil is your best friend. Learn to love it.
Coconut oil is your holy grail product. Out of shaving cream? Coconut Oil. Hair is dry? Coconut oil. Skin dry? Coconut oil? Stuck on the side of the road because your car broke down? Coconut oil. No, but in actuality you can use coconut oil for any of your beauty needs and is great for making sure your hair and skin are smooth and moisturized so you are bikini ready.
I scream you scream, please put on sunscreen!
Sunscreen is soo essential! Nothing is worse than planning a great vacation to somewhere sunny and then blowing it the first day because you decided to transform into a lobster and now are immobile for three days because you need to shed your top layer of skin. Its honestly just not worth it. The myths are fake, you can get tan while using sunscreen! So use it, just please do. It will protect you from the harmful sun rays and keep your skin looking younger and smoother.
Natural is key!
The sun will work its magic to give you a nice sun kissed glow so let it do its job. Don’t cake on the make up to go to the beach or pool. You’ll probably end up sweating and then it will all seep into your pores leading to many unwanted breakouts. The less you wear make-up, the more your skin will naturally correct itself 🙂
So, let the warm air fill you with happiness and let the sun fill you with good times because there’s a reason why the world gets better in the summer 🙂
