Make your own nourishing hair oil
If your hair is starting to get dry and wirey after exposure to the sun in summer, it is time to treat it to a nourishing oil mask. You can make your own hair oil mix easily at home with some pantry oils and cheap oils you can find in any drug store. You can use any of the following oils in a mixture to make your hair oil:

- Almond oil
- Argan oil

Use a sugar lip scrub
During the summer months, our lips can suffer from the heat of the sun, and as such, it is important to take steps to keep them plump and moisturized. One way to do this is to get rid of dead skin with a scrub and then use a balm to hydrate. Mix some olive oil, sugar, and 1 tsp lemon juice (optional) in a bowl until a thick paste is formed. Rub in gentle circular motions on your lips for 1 minute and then rinse off. Apply balm.
Purify your pores with lemon
Lemon is great for many things, and it has a wonderful impact on the skin. Cut a lemon in half and rub it in circles on your face for a minute or two. Not only will the acid kills bacteria and purify your pores, but the vitamin c inside will penetrate the skin and help form collagen to keep your skin youthful and elastic.
