Most people find ways to reduce the impact of the summer elements on the skin and hair, but often neglect lip care. Practicing routine lip care can ensure lips stay smooth and soft throughout the summer months. The following lip care tips will help keep your lips healthy and soft.
Apply Lip Balms: Lip balms protect the lips from the sun and other harsh elements. They moisturize and prevent lips from drying and chapping. There are lip balms that are available with SPF protection. Organic lip balms are one of the better choices. Sesame oil is also a good product for comforting the lips. As well, Shea butter helps the skin cells retain moisture and restores elasticity.

Care with Herbal Cosmetic Products

More and more skin care products are labeled "natural ingredients" or "herbal ingredients", and it is much more easier for us to find herbal skin care products, even though your interest wasn't on them. Like other cosmetic product, being a smart consumer and careful for the herbals.

Be Label Savvy
You must have the experience that confused in the labels. Scan the label for herbs you recognize, such as chamomile, lavender or rosemary, and keep in mind that the higher they fall in the list of ingredients, the greater their concentration in the product. And herbs don't always show up under their easy to recognize names. Chemicals derived from herbs have to show up on the label under their technical names, and you may not immediately recognize azulene and bisabolol as active constituents of chamomile or allantoin as a derivative of comfrey root. If you can't easily figure out what herbs are in a product you're considering, ask the salesperson to explain the ingredients.
Don't Assume Herbal Means Non-Irritating
Though herbs are natural, that doesn't mean they can't irritate your skin just like chemically based products can. Herbs such as lavender and aloe vera usually do have a soothing effect on skin, but if you have an allergy or you use a non-herbal product such as retinol in addition to your herbal skin care, you could have a reaction that includes redness and irritation. Always try a test patch for 48 hours to check for allergic reactions before including herbs in your skin care routine.
Choose the Right Herbs
All herbs are not created equal, so know what you want your skin care products to achieve. If acne's an issue, opt for herbs that have mild antibacterial properties---witch hazel, aloe vera or basil may be good options. If you want to ward off the signs of aging, opt for antioxidant-rich herbs such as rhodiola or Indian gooseberry. If you have issues with redness or skin irritation, you'll want herbs such as chamomile or comfrey that can soothe your skin.


The Magic Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is seen the most effective hair treatment. It is 100% natural, and it's free of silicones, alcohols, and other chemicals that can aggravate sensitive skin and hair. It works incredibly well for damaged hair regardless of what damage. Coconut oil is also anti-fungal in nature, making it a perfect natural anti-dandruff treatment, or as a preventative treatment for dandruff. 

Coconut oil can be found easily at drug stores, grocery stores, organic food stores, or health stores. Coconut oil works well for reconditioning dry hair because the molecular structure of coconut oil, unlike other oils or moisturizers that just sit on the hair, is ideal for penetrating the hair shaft, getting past the cuticle, repairing and preventing damage from the inside out. Lauric acid, capric acid, and vitamin E (all present in coconut oil) help restructure hair, increase hair's strength by preventing protein loss, and vastly improve shine. People that regularly use a coconut oil treatment report increased body, shine, and manageability with less breakage, static, tangles, and split ends. 

For a deep conditioning treatment, massage a couple of tablespoons of the coconut oil into your clean, damp hair and scalp. You may need more for long hair. Use more oil where your hair is the driest and most damaged and less where your hair is healthiest. I find that it's best to section your hair off and apply the coconut oil in sections to be sure that every hair is coated properly. If your coconut oil is in a solid state, you will need to warm the oil gently to create a liquid. Allow the oil to sit on your hair for 20-30 minutes after application. To increase the effectiveness of the treatment, cover with a shower cap and wrap your hair in a hot towel or apply heat with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Because the oil is very heavy, you will need to shampoo the oil out of your hair after the treatment. 

Coconut oil can be a god-send to those with severely damaged, over processed, and heat styled hair. It will be important to experiment with the amount of coconut oil to use, and how long to allow the oil to penetrate your hair in a way that will work for your specific hair type. If the coconut oil leaves your hair feeling weighed down or greasy, try using less or shampooing more effectively post treatment.
