The sun is not the only thing that can SHINE, so can you! Here are some very most important tips and tools to ensure our Queen glow is a healthy one; originating from the inside.
Queen Glow Rule #1: Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin, hair and nails. Being this is the hot and humid time of year, we have to take measures to drink a minimum of 8 eight ounce glasses of water per day as a minimum. According to WEBMD, drinking adequate water will not only maintain our external beauty looking their glowy best, water will also flush impurities from the kidneys (preventing kidney stone accumulation) and purifies the urinary tract. Kidney stones are an accumulation of calcium build-up. Now lets not take extra care of our bathroom walls calcium than we do for our body’s.
Queen Glow Rule #2: Block the sunrays to protect your skin. Khloe Kardashian keeps her skin looking young and noted one of her secrets in the June issue of Instyle magazine by revealing, “I also wear sunscreen every day, especially on my hands. Hands are always out in the sun, so they age the most. I keep extra sunscreen in the glove boxes of all my cars in case I forget. When the sun hits my hands while I’m driving, it reminds me to slather more on!!!”
Queen Glow Rule #3: Throw shade! A Queen can always look cool while also keeping her body protected from excessive sun exposure by wearing sunglasses and a hat. See below for some glamourous suggestions.
Queen Glow Rule #4: Let it be, let it be, just let your hair just be. Summer is the time we plan vacations to rest and unwind, so how about allowing our hair rest too? I practice the rule of taking my favorite conditioner and applying it to my ends. This coats, seals, protects them from damage and from further splitting. Allow your hair to rest in its natural position. If it wants to go left, allow it to!
Here are some products to add to your regime:
Bio-Oil – this is my personal go-to for my cuticles and for any spots that need extra tender care. This oil is great in making scars less noticeable. I want this!
Aquaphor – Use to gently remove eye make-up and to prevent fine lines. Aquaphor can keep your skin hydrated, while reducing the amount of fine lines and wrinkles from repetitive motions (i.e. smile lines from smiling). I want this!
Sachajuan Hair in the Sun – HAIR IN THE SUN WITH OCEAN SILK TECHNOLOGY PROTECTS YOUR HAIR AND HAIR COLOR FROM THE SUN WITH A UV FILTER THAT STAYS IN THE HAIR EVEN AFTER A BATH OR A SHOWER. I want this!
Wear your “Do not disturb” wide brim hat on your vacation for not only style and class, but also sunray protection. I can see myself wearing this poolside! I want this!
