Easy Hacks: Beauty Ideas for the Summer

Easy Hacks

Summer always tests your patience: you’re sweating, sun is drying out your skin and hair, your lips start to crack... What can you do? Try our easy hacks – some of them only require what you already have at home, some use products you’ll find at Notino.

Feel Refreshed Anywhere You Are

A beauty mist is one of the best inventions to get you through a hot day. And it’s easy to make: just fill a spray bottle with water and add some cucumber and peppermint. For a more sophisticated version, try aloe vera gel, tap water, and rose water. Or buy the LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios refreshing spray which can be used in the morning or during the day and even over your makeup thanks to its SPF 50.

Beautiful Tan in an Instant

Some swear by applying freshly brewed and still warm coffee to the skin using cotton pads. A better way is to use the Makeup Revolution Glow Revolution brightening spray for body and face which comes in two different shades. They both have a refreshing and illuminating effect, and give your skin a healthy colour.

Save Your Brittle Hair

Salt water and sun make your hair prone to breakage, but this problem is easy to solve. Simply use coconut oil as hair treatment, or get the Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Sun Protect travel kit which includes a shampoo, conditioner, and a shimmery oil designed specially for hair exposed to sun.

Heal Your Cracked Lips

Worried about your dry and cracked lips? Try a gentle scrub made from honey, sugar, and a bit of turmeric. Or just buy the NYX Professional Makeup #thisiseverything. This truly miraculous set contains a lip scrub, lip oil, and a lip balm with sun protection!

Say Goodbye to Flaky Skin

Fed up with your dry and flaky skin? A good beauty trick is to slice an aloe vera leaf and use its “gel” side on your face and body. Or go for a simpler solution with the Weleda Skin Food Light. This lighter version of the iconic Skin Food moisturiser comes with a whole line of light products. Same fantastic results with a fast-absorbing texture!
