Problem: Peeling Skin
So you no longer resemble a lobster. Now you're skin is beginning to peel, shedding dead skin cells everywhere.The best remedy for this is, of course, prevention. If a day at the beach got the best of you, however, the following solutions can be used either as soon as you've realized you have sunburn or when you start to notice your skin peeling.
Take a cold shower or bath as soon as you notice your skin beginning to peel. The cold water will cool your skin and slow down the peeling process. Be sure to pat your skin dry with a soft towel, rather than rubbing.
To keep itching and scarring to a minimum, it's critical that you stay hydrated. Drink a minimum or 10, 8 ounce glasses of water a day. Boost your body's ability to stay hydrated by adding Hydration by The Beauty Chef to your daily regimen.

Problem: Streaky Tan
High five on the decision to avoid the sun altogether by self-tanning! While a safe alternative, sunless tanning can be a bumpy road full of mishaps. Orange hands, uneven color and smelly chemical reactions top the proceed with caution list.
My first recommendation is to leave it to the professionals. An airbrush tan applied by a professional can produce long lasting, even and glowing results. Plus, you also have the added bonus of support should any questions arise.
An alternative or secondary recommendation is an easy to use self-tanner that has ingredients that are healthy for your skin. Sunless Tan by Kerstin Florian is luxuriously creamy going on so you hydrate the skin upon application.The color is mild and develops nicely and really enhances your natural skin color.I use this along with my professional airbrush tan to keep it looking fresh!

soothe my scalp. Try Kerstin Florian’s Intensive Hair Repair.
A hot oil treatment once a week will do wonders as well.Warming the oils allows better penetration and absorption. Pure Fiji's Exotic Bath and Body Oil utilizes nourishing coconut oil and exotic nut extracts to soothe and repair even the most damaged hair.
For an easy, on-the-go solution, try a dollop of hand cream! Believe or not, its been my quick remedy for years. Dab a dime size amount into the palms of your hands, rub them together, and then lightly brush your palms over the troubled area. This little bit of ‘stickiness’ is just enough to tame frizz without making your hair greasy. Try one of the yummy Hand Cremes by Caldera.

For most of us, one of the most annoying things about the warm weather is those pesky mosquitos. Not only are they annoying, but they're disease carrying potential is downright scary. With viruses like Zika infection the population, it's more important than ever to prevent and protect.
One of the best investments I've made this summer is my bug repelling candle by . With a 40 hour burn time and two delicious scents as, these candles have been clinically proven to repel mosquitoes that may carry Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya, and Aromaflage
