Tips for That Summer Glow

Thursday, May 28, 2015 Sara Wallflower 14 Comments

Hello everybody!

A not long ago I've discovered ALOHA- a place where you can say hello to healthy happiness, so I wanted to share some of my advices for achieving a perfect Summer glow. I've thought of three tips for a healthy, glowing and summer-ready skin. And since two of the three tips include fruits and spices, I checked their recipe page for an inspiration. I then decided to make a banana smoothie with cinnamon (my all time favourite) and lemon water with mint (we grow mint on our garden and it smells so good). I chose those two recipes, as they’re so simple and they take you less than five minutes to make, which is great if you don’t have much time because of school or something.

Tip 1: Banana smoothie with cinnamon

The ingredients you need to make smoothie (two servings): two bananas, 2 ½ glasses of milk, cinnamon.

First, you have to put sliced bananas and milk in a blender and after you blend them together, just pour the smoothie in glasses. Then add a bit of cinnamon and you’re done! I always add way too much cinnamon, but I just love it, since it’s great for the skin. You can also use cinnamon as body wash, scrub or face mask.

Tip 2: Lemon water with mint

The ingredients you need to make lemon water (about six servings): 1 ½ lemon, one litre of water, a few mint leaves.

It’s really important to drink enough water in the summer, but lemon water is as great as water. And you can add a few mint leaves to make lemon water even more refreshing. You can also use mint for your skin and it will look a lot fresher.

Tip 3: Smile

My last tip might sound cliché, but it always works. So if you want to really achieve that perfect Summer glow, smile. Smile all the time. When you watch a movie, when you’re getting ready, when you’re walking to the shop, when you’re with your friends. Just smile. You’ll feel confident, happy and comfortable in your own body and that will effect on your skin.

Here are my three tips for that perfect Summer glow.  I’d love to know some of your tips, so don’t forget to write them in the comments.

Love, Sara Wallflower
