Choose Spray Tanning Equipment

Spray tanning is something that can be done professionally in either the home of your client or in a salon.

Oily Skin During Summer

Cosmetic products for oily skin are generally water based since an oil based foundation for example would increase the amount of oil residing on the facial skin. This would be like adding water to the sea. However, in the summer, when the facial skin has to deal with heat, moisture and damaging ultraviolet UVA and ultraviolet UVB rays, it needs a protective layer of oil to prevent it from burning which can potentially cause skin cancer and other serious problems. What people with an oily or combination skin type need to do during this period is switch to cosmetic products that contain sunscreen. One of the best products for this purpose would be the foundation since this covers the entire face, but you could also try the primer in a form with added sunscreen or a BB cream if you are using one. There is no need to replace them

Caring for Oily Hair

As mentioned, washing your hair every day may make you feel like you’re taking out all the grease but it encourages the scalp to produce more oils. Limit your hair washing to every other day. Some people, such as Jessica Simpson, limit their hair washing to once or twice a month and rinse it on a regular basis.

A 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner may save time but it makes your hair worse. While trying to strip your hair of the oils, grease and dirt, it is trying to add more oil in. It simply doesn’t give your hair the wash it deserves, let alone helping to deal with greasy hair. Opt for separate products. They may cost more and take up more time but they are worth it for sleek-looking hair.

If you need to use conditioner, keep it away from the roots as much as possible. If your roots … Read the rest
