Happy Monday! Hopefully you're all feeling refreshed from the weekend, skipping into school or the office with a big smile on your face and a 'can-do' attitude. But for most of us, its a feet-dragging, coffee-chugging kind of morning.
So how are we supposed to look fully charged and effortlessly beautiful on a morning like this? Well, these five beauty tips will help:
Whip Up a Brightening DIY Facial
Eight to 10 leaves of spinach, half a banana, and a few drops of organic avocado oil
Blend lightly—just enough so that you can spread the mixture evenly on your face. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, then rinse.
Moisturize to the Max
To really revive dry skin, swap your traditional lotion for any product with hyaluronic acid, which helps your skin lock in water. To really reap all the benefits, exfoliate before your moisturize.
Prevent Puffy Eyes
Under-eye puffiness is normally water retention and it’s usually caused by eating too much salt and not drinking enough water. Try sleeping with your window open a crack on Sunday night or putting ice cubes on your cheeks for 10 minutes before sleeping.
Show Your Scalp Some Love
When you’re super busy during the week, it’s hard to find the time for a scalp massage. This Sunday, commit 10 minutes to a full massage like you'd receive at the salon. Massaging your shampoo into your scalp stimulates blood flow, which helps the cells repair themselves.
Perform circular motions with your fingers, pressing the product into your scalp for deep penetration.
