Summer is upon us! There has even been some sunshine to show for it.
The warm weather can be amazing for boosting our mood, fun days out and it even gives us that summer glow (don't forget your sunscreen) but our hair can suffer, if we don't take care of it this summer.
You are what you eat
That's right! It's one of the last things we think of but great hair and skin starts from the inside. Stock up on vitamins, get lots of amazing fruit and veg in you.
Which foods are great for hair and skin?
- turkey, fish, eggs, nuts
- lentils, spinach, broccoli, red meats, kale
For Vitamin C
- blackcurrants, blueberries, oranges, strawberries
For Omega 3
- salmon, mackerel, avocado, pumpkin seeds, walnuts
For Vitamin A
- carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
We can't emphasise enough how important it is to stay hydrated. Not keen on water? Make it more exciting!
Here's a recipe for fruit water that we think you'll absolutely love.
Blueberry Orange Water
It may seem like an odd combo but it's delicious and adds Vitamin C and antioxidants from the blueberries.
Cut an orange into segments
Add a handful of blueberries
Keep your fruit in a tupperware tub, if you want to throw some in on-the-go.
Add to the water at your next BBQ!
Look out for our next round of summer haircare tips, coming soon!
