4 Beauty Products That Will Change Your Life

Medicine cabinets, vanity counters, decorative storage spaces and DIY shelves are the home for hundreds of beauty products in many households even though, half of the items are never put to use.  It is very easy to hoard products. New lines come out, brands go on sale, and certain items will trend more than others. These are all valid excuses to buy something new.

Even though there is always a time to splurge when possible, product overload can be a thing. Going through countless bottles and jars to find the one you are looking for can be agonizing. There are aisles and stores dedicated to selling shampoos and lotions and cleansers just to add to the collection.  While there are hundreds of products that may deserve a coveted space in your stash, there are some that you do not need to have.  Here are beauty products that no one should be without.

 

Coconut Oil

 

Coconut oil is one of the most versatile products on the market. There are many items in your collection that can be replaced by coconut oil.   One way to benefit from coconut oil is for skincare. Coconut oil can be used as a moisturizer on all types of skin. It slows down the advancement of ailments such as wrinkles or sagging skin.  Coconut oil can also add moisture and sheen to hair. Add coconut oil to conditioners or use on dry, dull hair.  The uses for coconut oil are nearly endless. Makeup remover, shaving cream, body scrubs and more can all be crafted from coconut oil.

 

Hair Extensions

 

customized hair extensions

 

Hair extensions are something that everyone should own. Clip-in extensions are your best friend for quick and easy, but superb, styling. Extensions are a go-to for a quick style change, getting glam for an event or a go-to  remedy to the worst of bad hair-days. Luxury clip-in hair extensions can be customized for any hair cut and color and come in a variety of textures. Use hair extensions to give your hair an instant boost. Another major bonus of hair extensions is the shelf life. With proper care, luxury hair pieces can last years at a time.

 

Face Masks

 

Face masks are growing in popularity. While they might seem to be a fad, the right face mask can take your skincare to the next level.  Face masks can be purchased or created with ingredients found in many kitchens and pantries and are great at providing solutions that many cannot find in serums, creams and cleansers.  They can also be fun to make, fun to use and therapeutic.

 

Dry Shampoo

 

Dry shampoo is one of the beauty industry’s most slept on product. Dry shampoo is the perfect thing to give your hair the necessary boost when there is not time to wash it since it absorbs oil from hair, limiting the amount of dirt and grease without the use of water.   Dry shampoo is great for busy mornings, midday workouts, or getting ready for last minute events.  There are powder, aerosol and mousse forms of dry shampoo.  Use dry shampoo to beat oily, flat hair in an instant.

5 Products For Easy Breezy Summer Style

Summer temperatures can get well above average in most areas. Between scorching heat, tiring humidity and busy days, it is sometimes hard to look your best all summer long.  Although it can be stressful, there are ways to achieve effortless style on even the hottest days. The following 7 items are essential for easy breezy summer style.

 

Maxi Dresses

 

Maxi dresses, a dress that hits the ankles or lower, are summer staple, perfect for keeping your legs from being constantly exposed to the dangerous summer sun. They are sold at every price point in every size and in a variety of shades and patterns.  There are maxi dresses that can be dressed up and frocks that can be dressed down. Maxi dresses are perfect for nailing summer style. They are not only cool to wear in hot temperatures; maxi dresses look great on anyone.  Stock up on maxi dresses for ultimate summer style.

 

Wedge Sandals

 

Wedge sandals are great to have for summer since they are simultaneously functional and stylish. They are the perfect day to night time shoe and are super comfortable. You can wear a wedge heel in most summer occasions. A wedge can add extra flair to a casual summer look or be the perfect addition for after-5 affairs. Scout out a wedge in a neutral color with the ability to be worn with most of your summer favorites.

 

Crown Extensions

Crown extensions are the hairstyle additive you never knew you needed. Crafted from human hair, crown extensions can be washed, styled with heat and worn in any look. The extensions come in a variety of textures and colors and can even be customized for your perfect match. Crown extensions are great for the summer because they allow your natural hair to take a break from daily manipulation. They are also easy to wear and a great investment to anyone who purchases them. Crown extensions are the perfect way to combat summer hair woes.

 

Sunglasses

 

The perfect frames can take a bad summer day to a cool summer attitude. Use summer shades to block the haters and the sun.  Sunglasses have a fashionable effect. Whatever you choose to wear, sunglasses will instantly add chic notes and stylish vibes. Sunglasses are great for protecting the eyes and face from harmful rays, while still looking amazing. Shades are the accessory that should be on everyone’s must have list.  For an instant stylish demeanor, whip out your sunglasses and bask in all of the shady glory.

 

Statement Necklaces

 

A statement necklace is the perfect jewelry item for all summer occasions. Statement necklaces have the ability to be worn both casually and formally and are great for adding a pop of color, element of texture or being the focal point of any outfit. Statement necklaces are great because when worn, they are usually the only necessary jewelry, which eliminates hassle of finding matching earrings or headbands when getting dressed up on a summer day.  Statement necklaces come in many lengths ranging from chokers to bibs to super long pendants. Grab some statement necklaces and keep them on-hand all summer long.
