Summer time brings out the simple pleasures in life- weekends at the beach, BBQ with friends, watermelon and delicious cocktails by the sea. However it’s not all fun in the sun. Summer can bring with it heat and humidity, which can cause havoc on our skin and hair. The hot days can cause breakouts and clogged pore, which is not fun for any one.
Here are some tips to ensure that your hair stays silky smooth and your skin doesn’t represent a beetroot this summer.
Moisturise – Listen up, hydration is the key. Swap your heavy cream based moisturisers for something light,like a serum. This applies to your hair as well. The heat can cause your hair to become dry and dull, so don’t forget to condition and nourish your locks. Seven Wonders Moroccan Argan Oil for Hair and Skin helps keep your skin hydrated and nourish.

Slip, Slop, Slap – SPF is crucial if you want to keep your skin young and fresh. It will help prevent age spots and wrinkles damage, not to mention protection against skin cancer. Sunscreen is not just a beach thing; it’s an every day thing. Got it? The Cancer Council recommends all sunscreens be re-applied every 2 hours if you are swimmer or exercising. So don’t forget.
