It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Stupid Tip of the Day: It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock.

One of the biggest mistakes people make with skin care is not using sun protection on hazy days. Even if the sun isn’t shining, be sure to put on an SPF with UVA.

Those sun rays are still beaming through the clouds and have the potential to give a deep burn, without noticing until it’s too late.

One of the worst burns I ever got was on the beach on a cloudy, cold day. So, be careful and wear your SPF. If you’re on a beach or an open area, wearing a hat to help keep those rays at bay, can help. And, wearing sunglasses in the haze, can protect your eyes from those dangers, as well.

Quickie: Blow Dry Hair Faster.

You know when you’re in a hurry, it seems like it takes 10 times longer to dry your hair. A quick tip that actually does work, even though it may sound strange is, let your hair air dry.

For only about 5 minutes, let the air pull the moisture out, while running your fingers through it every so often. This can reduce the dry time significantly.

So take that time to put on your make-up or make that cup of coffee. Then return to your hair drying routine.

Tips in Action: Razor Burn at the Beach.


Having smooth legs at the beach is a desire, but shaving the day of, can cause some serious discomfort. The sand and salt water can cause razor burn to freshly shaven legs.

A good tip is too, shave the night before you hit the beach. If it’s a spontaneous event, try using an electric razor. You may not get a close shave, but your legs will appear to be hair free and reduce your chances of beach razor burn.

Tip in Action: Tomatoes Before Sun?

Skin care is so important when entering the sun. Protecting the skin on the outside is important, but there are ways to protect your skin from the inside out.

Adults hitting that bloody Mary breakfast buffet when at the beach, before going sea side, may not be a bad idea.

Pump the kids up with tomato juice, before jumping in the pool could be a way to go, as well.

Tomatoes can help prevent the skin from absorbing the dangerous parts of UV rays.

Healthy Skin. Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: Healthy Skin.

A great natural skin care regimen is important. The skin is the largest organ we have, and you have to take care of it.

Some people have very sensitive skin, where cleansers, astringents and scrubs are not possible; soap can be abrasive enough.

Try a mixture of witch hazel and tea tree oil as a facial wipe. Get a small bottle and fill it with witch hazel and add several drops of tea tree oil. Shake the bottle and apply to face with a cotton ball. The witch hazel will be a light astringent, pulling out impurities and healing the skin while the tea tree soothes, moisturizes, kills bacteria and other impurities, while healing the skin as well.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Rubbing Alcohol Burns Like the Sun.

Rubbing alcohol burns and stings, when you have an open wound on your skin. But, rubbing alcohol is amazing for sunburn, without causing any pain.

Splash rubbing alcohol on skin (avoiding cuts or sores) after being in the sun. It will absorb into the skin putting out the heat of the sun.

Did you know, you can continue to have effects from the sun up to 3 hours after taking shade. This process will extinguish the continuing of burning from the inside, out.

Hair Dryer Smells Burnt, Clean It Out Easy. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Hair Dryer Smells Burnt, Clean It Out Easy.

If the hair dryer is smelling like it’s burning every time you turn it on, it’s time to clean it out. Dust and lint get trapped in the back screen. Cleaning it out can prevent the dryer from catching fire or burning out the fan and motor.

Remove the back screen and use a clean dry cotton swab in between the blades. Flip the swab to the clean side, and dust the screen off as well.

Put the dryer back together and it should run as good as new.

Tricks for Sunless Tanning.

By Tia Cristy

Tricks for Sunless Tanning.

Problem: Hi Tia. It’s time for the pool to open, and I don’t want to look pale in my suit. Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to self tanning?

Answer: Good question, and really, it’s a great alternative to tanning in the sun.

Sun is important for Vitamin D, but the rays can be harmful with too much indulgence. Sunless tanning can be natural with the right product, and only you, can determine which product and color is right for you. Trial and error may be what you have to do to find the right one; there are sprays, airbrushes, lotions and wipes to choose from.

Do a sunless tanner the day before you need a tan. It’s easy to correct any mistakes or darken your color if needed. Jumping in water after applying sunless tan, will just leave you a streaky mess and it’s not good for the pool water either. So plan accordingly.

First tip, use a separate face tanner, on the face, unless the tanning product says, full body. Body tanners can slightly dye hair, and darkening facial hair is not a goal for most.

The next tips would be, don’t shave legs before applying tanner, if possible. Exfoliating your legs and body before tanning is a good way to get a longer lasting tan. Shaving before hand can cause razor burn or darken pores. Shaving is best, after tan color has been achieved.

Remember, tanning can dye clothes, so be sure to wear dark colors while waiting for color to take. Wash hands well when finished, when using a lotion or wipe. Do forget to get around jewelry, if wearing it. Color can tend to build up behind rings.

If hands have turned color or you have any darker patches, use peroxided on a cotton ball (wring out, so no drips or runs happen) and wipe the area. It will fade the color to blend within a few hours.
