The carefree feelings of summer makes you want to indulge in outdoor happy times make ice cream and permanent part of your daily diet and forget about slaving in front of the mirror just to look great. However, you certainly do not want to look like a hot mess! Read on in this article to find some amazing beauty tips that will help you fight the elements that makes your hair frizz and your skin burn while at the same time catering to the sexy, no-fuss vibe you feel inside during the summer months.

Start off using more hair accessories. A hair accessory adds interest to a style and requires little work on your part. Put on a thin headband horizontally on your forehead. It will give you a cool look and keep your hair in place all at the same time.

You can make your own interesting headband in no time at all:

  • Buy three 2-foot strands of silk cord (try different shades in the same color family) at a fabric or craft shop
  • Braid them together and make a knot at each end
  • Tie it on
  • Secure it at the back of your head

    Make an Acne-Fighting Mask

  • Stop summer greasy skin with a simple, natural face mask
  • Certain seasonal fruits such as pineapple and papaya are loaded with enzymes that help dissolve oil and slough off dead skin
  • Apply the mask once a week to soak up acne-causing grease

    At Home Recipe

  • Cut a papaya in half
  • Toss the seeds
  • Scoop out the fruit
  • Mash it
  • Beat an egg until it is frothy
  • Then mix it with the papaya, the egg helps the mask stick
  • Add half a cup of crushed pineapple to the egg/papaya mixture
  • Whip together (you can also mix the ingredients in the blender or a food processor)
  • Cover your face with the mixture
  • Avoid the sensitive eye area from your brows to the tops of your cheekbones
  • Leave it on for about 10 minutes
  • Rinse thoroughly

    Instant Summer Gloss

  • Try using clear lip balm mixed with bronzer or cream eye shadow
