As humans we put our bodies and minds through a lot. Whether it’s just day to day life or pushing yourself to go the extra mile, your body works hard. Sometimes I find that my daily shower and hand washing cause my skin and hair to lack moisture, weather can damage my hair, and stress can cause me to break out- it happens. I definitely try to prevent a lot of this from happening as much as I can. Here’s a round up of my must have products that I use to keep my body feeling refreshed.

Daddy-O Shampoo // At first I was a little hesitant to use this shampoo because it’s purple. That was before learning that purple/violet toned shampoo is exactly what people with light/blonde/gray hair need to keep their locks looking their best. The smell of this is very calming, and it leaves my hair feeling clean, bright, shiny, and healthy! Also, it’s from LUSH so it’s great for your hair!

OGX Penetrating Oil // When I get out of the shower, I always put this in my hair. It doesn’t leave my hair oily even though it’s an oil. Since using it my hair has been a lot healthier, has suffered from less damage, and has actually grown faster due to the lack of damage. This is definitely one of my favorite hair products!

Tresemme Thermal Creations // I have been using this since high school when it was almost expected that your hair was flat ironed every morning. At first I didn’t use it and I just took a 400 degree straightener to my hair causing so much damage. Once I started using this my hair thanked me, so I never stopped! Just a couple spritzes before you blow dry/style and hair is much healthier.

Burt’s Bees // I am obsessed with Burt’s Bees, but really only the kind with the mint in it. I like the way that I can feel it working on my lips and the mint is super refreshing. I keep tubes of this all around my house and in most of my bags just in case I need it. I never leave the house without it!

Sephora Night Masks // A friend of mine works at Sephora and recommended these to me. After your normal nightly skin care routine, you put a little bit all over your face and it works overnight- you just wash your face normally in the morning. I have been using the Green Tea one a lot, but I also have the Pearl!

St. Ives Body Lotion // I will always love St. Ives. I wrote a post about it when I got a bunch of products from Influenster. I have used St. Ives for years and I will continue to do for years to come! This is pretty much the only lotion that leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated, not oily, and feeling generally healthier.

Jergen’s Natural Glow // I love being tan, but I can’t stand to keep damaging my skin with tanning beds. I always used to tan and as nice as it was, my skin definitely was not appreciating it. This lotion not only makes you gradually tan and glowing, but it also moisturizes so you don’t have that dry feeling you would get if you simply laid in a tanning bed for a long time. I recently used this before my trip to Virginia and although I was still a little pale, I was definitely tanner than normal. It does take more than two days of use before you’re tan, and I clearly didn’t give myself enough time to get tan before going on vacation.

EOS Hand Lotion // My hands tend to get dry due to weather and washing throughout the day. I always carry an EOS lotion in my purse to try and prevent the dryness. The package is sleek, the smell is gentle, and the lotion doesn’t leave my hands feeling greasy. I definitely think this is a great lotion to carry around daily!
