  • 1. Fix Self-Tanner Mistakes With Baking Soda
    1. Fix Self-Tanner Mistakes With Baking Soda
  • You're trying to be good by using self-tanner instead of risking skin cancer by tanning in the sun (go you!), but you can't deal with the uneven blotches. Stop scrubbing your skin red trying to even out your faux glow, and instead, exfoliate with a mix of baking soda and water on a loofah. It will help wash away excess tanner, so you can try again!

  • 2. Smooth Your Feet With A Potato

  • Instead of hitting the nail salon for weekly pedis, just grab a potato! Cut it in half, and coat it in coarse sea salt. Scrub it on the bottom and sides of your feet an instant exfoliator!

  • 3. Keep Color From Fading With Vinegar

  • No matter what your hair color, salt water and the blazing sun can seriously dull the shade. Apple cider vinegar will brighten it back up! Just pour 1/2 cup into a spray bottle and spritz your hair. Leave it on for about 10 minutes, and rinse it out. Use this trick every time you spend the day outside, and your amazing color will last much longer.

  • 4. Keep Your Blonde Bright With Olive Oil

  • Chlorine can do major damage to blonde hair (and highlights!), causing it to take on a greenish hue. The key is to protect your strands before jumping in the pool. To protect your color, coat your hair with a leave-in conditioner, or go the more natural route with a little coconut, sesame, or olive oil, before swimming. And always rinse your hair with chlorine-free water as soon as you get out of the pool! If you can handle cold water, it will boost shine.

  • 5. Repair Dried-Out Hair With Avocado

  • Sun, salt water, and chlorine can all seriously fry out your hair. If a day at the beach leave you with straw-like strands, whip up this moisturizing DIY mask at home. Mix one ripe avocado, one egg, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon of coconut oil in a blender. Then apply it from mid-shaft to ends and cover your head in a shower cap. Leave it on for 20 minutes, and rinse!

  • 6. Protect Your Polish In The Fridge
    6. Protect Your Polish In The Fridge
  • Nail polish left out in the heat can form bubbles, which will drive you ca-razy come #manicuremonday. Store your fave polishes in the fridge, and they'll stay smooth, not to mention feel nice and cool on your tips!

  • Soothe An Itchy Scap with Yogurt

  • The same things that dry your hair and skin in summer, can seriously dry out your scalp too. To treat a dry itchy scalp, try this quick DIY fix. Dissolve two crushes aspirin pill in one tablespoon of water; then add two tablespoon of Greek yogurt and mix it all together. Massage the mixture into your scalp and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Wash and condition your hair after, and it will majorly help with an itchy scalp!

  • Fight Frizz With Coconut Oil

  • While there are a ton of great frizz-reducing products on the market, you can save money by making your own with ingredients you can probably find in the kitchen! Mix two tablespoons of coconut oil and two tablespoons of avocado oil into a spray bottle, and mist the super dry parts of your hair. Bonus: You'll smell like the beach without ever leaving your house!

  • Get Rid Of Static With Dryer Sheets
    Get Rid Of Static With Dryer Sheets
  • You probably know that dryer sheets help banish static in your clothes, but did you know it can do the same for your hair? Just keep a sheet nearby and rub it on your head for hair that is sure to stay put!

  • Switch Your Foundation To A BB Cream
    Switch Your Foundation To A BB Cream
  • When temps heat up, skip the heavy foundation, and try a BB or CC cream. They act as tinted moisturizers, so you'll still get some coverage, but they won't melt off if you start to sweat. Use a BB cream if you want to hide blemishes, and a CC cream if you're looking for more color-correcting, like for redness.
