Repair and Protect Hair and Skin from the Harsh Summer Weather

One of my lease favorite seasons is summer. I live in the South and it’s always 100+ degrees, even late into October. The heat damages my skin and leaves me a sweaty mess. This does not bode well for my naturally oily skin.

The application and re-application of sunscreen and make up leaves my skin clogged and looking rough. The scorching sun usually leaves me with redness and burns. Because of this, I am super careful with the products that I apply to my skin.

Detox and Correct Skin after Harmful UV Rays and Chemicals

Clear Your Skin – Tox-Block & Cleanse Supplement detoxes the liver which, in turn, detoxes chemicals from the skin and blood stream. Supplements are easy to swallow and do not have a weird taste. When taken twice per day, skin improves by reducing redness and inflammation.

-Milk thistle – supports the liver in its hard work of processing chemicals and toxins
-Curcumin – a bioactive component of turmeric, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to offset stress, soothe and calm
-N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) – counters toxins and inflammation
-Alpha-Lipoic Acid – helps prevent cell damage and restore levels of vitamins E and C

Clear Your Skin – Decongest Fruit Enzyme Creme Mask After a long day of sweat and make-up running down my face, I like to give my pores a nice deep clean without striping my face and causing damages. The cream is nice and provides cooling relief in the dead of summer.

-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness
-Organic Pineapple Enzymes – gently sweep away dead skin cells to smooth texture, clear pores, and add glowOrganic
-Papaya Enzymes – reduce redness and spotchiness, exfoliate, tone, and help cool blemishes

Clear Your Skin – Resurfacing 1% Retinol Serum I use this at night to repair my cells after hours of sun exposure. It leaves no greasy feel and is perfect for recharging skin at the end of a long day.

-Retinol – supports skin elasticity and renewal, helps address the look of scars, fine lines and wrinkles
-Calendula – speed healing of minor blemishes, bring calm and balance bacteria
-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness

We Switched To Natural Hair And Beauty Essentials

I like to switch up my haircare products between natural and the name or store brands you may find at any retailer.  I recently switched my son over to a natural deodorant and he’s already using a natural shampoo bar and body bar. It was only fitting to switch to a natural shampoo bar for myself. We switched to natural hair and beauty essentials and we’re excited to share what we found!

Is This Curling Wand Great for Beginners

Sultra 1.5-inch titanium wand Product Photo

Beauty Brite Disclosure

You can’t browse through Instagram without seeing women posing with their long, curly locks. Most of it is used using different products and styling tools like this curling wand from Sultra. But is this 1.5-inch titanium curling wand ($149) a great item for beginners?

Curling Wand Ease of Use

What’s great about the Sultra curling wand is that it comes with a glove to prevent any burns. I believe most wands will come with a glove, but I wonder if it helps those who are used to a regular curling iron.

For me, there was definitely a learning curve. I think because I was so afraid of burning myself, I had a hard time concentrating on my hair. Even though I didn’t burn myself, I definitely came close. But keep in mind, I hardly ever curl my hair. My hair is naturally wavy when wet, so I typically blow dry is straight or use a flat iron.

Product Details

This is the first clipless curl and wave wand that combines a titanium barrel and a dedicated ion emitter. This allows for quick, one-pass styling without damaging your heat from heat exposure. You’re getting optimum heat surface with a friction-free glide, which means no snagging or pulling. Facts about the Sultra curling wand:

  • Nine-foot no tangle swivel cord
  • Two-year warranty
  • Auto shut-off
  • A digital variable temperature for up t 350F degrees
  • Dual-heater technology for even heat and styling
  • Fast heat up
  • Ion emitter creates the most healing, smoothing ions for shiny hair
  • Iron pad and styling glove included
  • Universal voltage

Creating Different Looks

What I like about the size of the wand is being able to create different hairstyles. Once you get used to using a wand, it doesn’t take a long time to do my hair in the morning.

My favorite look is definitely beachy waves. While my hair is a little too short to get the curls that I want, it’s a look that I can definitely get in around 45 minutes. My hair is thick, so it does require some products and a little bit of work. But, we all know what a great hair day can do! So it’s definitely worth it.

Overall Thoughts

I’m enjoying the Sultra curling wand, but there was definitely a learning curve that involved a lot of frustrations. If you’re experienced with curling wands and need a new one, I think you will definitely enjoy the 1.5-inch titanium wand from Sultra.
