Natural remedies for summerís bummers
Summertimeóthe living may be easy but the hot weather can wreak havoc on your hair and skin. Fortunately, natural remedies can help counter the effects of these seasonal syndromes. High temps can speed up your metabolism, translating into more active oil glands and oilier skin. If this happens to you, carry clean cotton balls and a mild astringent, such as witch hazel or strong green tea, in your tote bag to wipe your face and freshen up naturally. Consider using a facial mask up to twice a week to keep your skin clean and healthy. These DIY summer beauty treatments call for safe, natural ingredients that you may have in your kitchen. If your skin is super-sensitive and an ingredient is new to you, do a small test on your skin before using.
