From a skin elixir to hair-taming tips, summer’s Buckhead beauty musts.
Summer Strands Scoop
SB: What kind of shampoo should I use in the summer?
SS: Fine hair does better with a cleansing shampoo that will not weigh it down, while cleansing conditioners are great for dryer, more textured hair, as they leave little or no chemicals behind, which can cause hair to be dry and brittle. Their moisturizing deposits are particularly good for hair that is exposed to the sun for extended periods of time.
SB: Help—I have a scalp sunburn. What now?
SS: Lavender oil can be used to calm and treat scalp irritation. Apply a few drops to the scalp and pull it through to your ends before bedtime.
SB: How can I tame my out-of-control flyaways?
SS: When you blowdry, apply a product that helps seal the cuticle, use a round brush and make sure your hairdryer has a nozzle to help to control the direction of the air and prevent excess frizz. Also make sure to remove all moisture from the hair.
SB: What should I apply to my hair before hitting the pool?
SS: Just like your skin, it’s important to protect your hair from the sun. Apply a UV protectant, such as Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream, prior to your outdoor lounge time.
Peach season is here again and to celebrate, Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio created an all-natural soy candle that smells just like the juicy fruit. What’s more, you can use the candle’s warm melted wax as a luxurious body moisturizer. Added bonus: A no-pull, peach-colored hair tie comes with it.
Available at Sweet Peach for $8 (small), $25 (large travel tin) or $30 (large).
Give your skin a nourishing boost from the inside out with an ancient beauty remedy. “While traveling to Turkey, India and Egypt, I noticed glowing and flawless skin on women who are quite older than I am. One of their oldest traditions for their skin is rose water. Women put it on their face and consume it regularly,” says Buckhead native and Bamboo Juices Founder/CEO Kelley Sibley. Inspired, Sibley created the refreshing 4-ounce Skin Elixir, made of pure Bulgarian rose water and lemon, as part of her cold-pressed juice offerings. She recommends mixing it with a liter of water and sipping throughout the day.
Available from Bamboo Juices for $4.
