Sophisticate’s Blog:             DIY Summer Beauty


Summer is officially in full swing with warm weather, short shorts and lots of swimming! But, all that summer fun brings a beating to your luxurious locks and flawless face. Luckily, Josie Feria, Director of Spa Operations at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau, in Miami Beach, FL, will whip your hair and skin back in shape with these spa-inspired DIY tricks…

1. Prepare a pot of boiling water with several bags of chamomile tea; allow tea to steep and release benefits into water.

2. Place face over steaming pot and cover head with towel to trap steam. You are stimulating the benefits of a steam room.

3. Remove face from steam and place cucumbers or icy, damp chamomile tea bags on eyes to reduce puffiness.

4. Dab off excess moisture and apply scrub cream to face in gentle circular and upward motions to face, neck and chest. Place emphasis on chin, jaw and neck to help lift any ingrown facial hairs.

5. Rinse thoroughly with a warm, moist washcloth and apply witch hazel or rose or lavender water using a spray bottle or a cotton pad.

6. Apply moisture lotion or cream in upward, relaxing massage strokes, placing slight pressure on temples and under forehead bridge line to release tension.

Instant result: clean, shiny skin with improved texture and appearance!

1. Mix lemon juice and warm green tea; apply mixture to scalp with brush or applicator as you separate hair; pour remaining amount through hair.

2. Allow mixture to remain on scalp for a few minutes—the tea and lemon work as an astringent to cleanse scalp and hair follicles.

3. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and apply a combination of plain yogurt and avocado—mix 2 parts fresh avocado and 2 parts yogurt. Massage into the hair in circular motions to relax the scalp and stimulate hair growth.

4. Gently massage temples and base of scalp line. Place plastic shower cap over avocado/yogurt mix on hair and wrap in warm towel for 10 minutes or until towel cools off. Rinse thoroughly.

Instant result: hair that’s softer and shinier, with improved circulation to scalp (an aide to healthy hair growth!).
