Haircare - from roots to ends
Using sunscreen is essential to avoid premature aging of the skin, but also to take care of our hair. UV radiation can severely damage your hair, even more so if it is already fragile from coloring or chemical treatments, turning it brash and frail and withdrawing all of its natural glow and elasticity. This might lead to breakage, discoloration and unruly strands.
Always opt for a protective hair product that contains UV filters and provides extra protection from solar radiation. Available in many formats like sprays, lotions or creams, these protectors to offer deep hydration and prevent from damage. Full of proteins and anti-oxidants, they are reliable safeguards for your precious mane. On top of that, you might consider a nourishing hair regimen-routine, for example an after sun hair mask with avocado or coconut oil to restore its smoothness and shine.
The oil-revolution: Algae is your new Super Food
On your fingertipsWater and soapy agents work reliably against dirt residues and make-up in the daily skincare ritual. But only a gentle face scrub removes excess dry skin, frees the pores and refines the skin's texture. That's why a mild peeling once or twice a week should also be part of your beauty routine.
Always opt for natural ingredients for your scrubs and peelings: Honey, for example, has a highly regenerative and antiseptic effect thanks to its antibacterial ingredients and antioxidants. Coconut is a moisturizing miracle that makes the skin resistant to environmental influences and pollution. And coffee is also rich in antioxidants and protects the skin from free radicals that can cause signs of aging. The coarse grain of ground coffee also removes dry, flaky skin and refines the skin's appearance. When these three ingredients are combined, they work wonders for a fresh and radiant complexion.
