The OrdinaryMulti-Peptide Serum for Hair DensityPeel Away Product Build-UpLet's face it, after days of dry shampoo and styling products, you've got to get back to basics! Just like your skin, your hair too needs to be exfoliated on a regular basis to rid your follicles of excess product. A baking soda/water rinse is one of the best ways to cleanse your scalp of product build-up and slough off any dead cells. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with two tablespoons of warm water and run it through wet, unwashed hair. Massage the rinse properly from roots to ends and then shampoo. You will notice that your scalp feels super fresh and clean. For a product that can help strip away caked on product, try R+CO's Acid Wash. Cleansing Rinse. Acid wash is the perfect way to cleanse without stripping away natural oils or color. It softens the hair, calms the scalp, and adds dramatic shine.Impede ItchinessFrom stress and anxiety to allergic reactions, a persistent itchy scalp can come from all kinds of things. But there are some easy treatments for getting rid of the itch. One ingredient in your pantry is said to help cure an itchy scalp: apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties, so it can help reduce itching caused by a dry scalp. After shampooing, dilute some apple cider vinegar in warm water and use it as a rinse to alleviate dandruff and an itchy scalp. One product that's great to curb itchiness is Living Proof's Restore Dry Scalp Treatment. This product is a leave-in scalp treatment that delivers rich hydration and lasting relief from dry scalp itching and irritation. The best part is you can count on this treatment to work long term — with a breakthrough Vitamin-B3-based microbiome complex, it's clinically-proven to work over time to balance your scalp's natural ecosystem for continuous relief.
Living proof.Restore Dry Scalp TreatmentHalt Hair LossLosing an abnormal amount of hair is definitely a tough situation to be in, but there are ways to help your scalp correct and replenish itself. If you’re wondering how to stop hair from falling out, aloe vera is a great home remedy for treating hair loss. Aloe vera works to soothe and calm a damaged scalp, creating a healthy environment for hair cells to replenish and flourish. Aloe also helps clean up sebum, an oil that clogs follicles and prevents hair from growing back. To effectively use this natural hair loss treatment, simply massage pure aloe vera gel directly into your scalp, let sit for 30 minutes, and rinse twice a week. Vitabrid C12's Scalp Shampoo is another excellent way to prevent hair loss. This shampoo is made of natural, plant-sourced ingredients that help make weak scalps healthier and provide moisture and nutrients to the hair. Because it is so gentle, yet cleansing, this shampoo can reverse the damage caused by environmental factors as well as chemical treatments and processing.
Vitabrid C¹²Scalp ShampooDefeat DrynessOne of the most common scalp conditions is dryness, and we've got remedies for that! Believe it or not, it's thought that mashed bananas can help moisturiuze a dry scalp! The idea is that the potassium, oils, and vitamins in bananas can help treat a dry scalp and improve hair health. Mix half of a mashed banana into a bit of conditioner for a nourishing hair mask. Apply after shampoo, let sit for 5 minutes, and rinse. If you're in the market for a product to treat your dry scalp, look no further than Morrocanoil's Dry Scalp Treatment. This professional-grade treatment is designed to calm and moisturize the scalp.

Antioxidants in skincare
Free radicals are produced as a byproduct in the body as well as are result of various external sources including ultraviolet radiations, pollution, pesticides, smoking. They damage the body’s healthy cells. Antioxidants help neutralise these excess free radicals and prevent damages to DNA, protein, lipids. They are produced endogenously in our body but certain factors affect the amount of antioxidants required to scavenge these free radicals. To prevent our skin from oxidative stress damage, topical application of antioxidants have proven to be beneficial.

🎯Ingrown hairs—these two little words conjure🎯
In our quest for smooth, stubble-free skin, ingrown hairs are an annoyance at best and cause for concern at worst (trust me- you don't want to see what they look like when they get infected)🤐 The cause of ingrown hairs isn't complicated. Simply put, when your hair starts to grow, sometimes it curls inward and gets trapped back under the surface of your skin. This can happen because dead skin cells clog up your hair follicle (so always, always exfoliate), but ingrowns also exist just because of your hair's natural growth pattern—so, unfortunately, those with curly hair may suffer the most! ￼Aspirin-Honey Treatment This recipe is a double whammy. Not only does aspirin naturally contain salicylic acid, but honey also has antibacterial properties, which can help reduce the possibility of inflammation and infection. 🔎Ingredients: 3 uncoated aspirin tablets 1 tsp. honey 1/2 to 1 tsp. water or oil Directions: Add warm water or oil to a bowl Add honey Crush aspirin tablets Mix together Leave mask on for 10 minutes Wipe off entirely with warm water ￼Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub Coconut oil, for example, is hydrating, keeps skin moisturized, and reduces inflammation.4 It's basically our winter skin savior. Mix it with raw sugar and you've got a winner. You can use this scrub daily until you see an improvement, and then you can switch to two to three times a week. Just be careful that the scrub isn't too abrasive. 🔎Ingredients: 1 cup of raw sugar 1/2 cup of coconut oil 10 drops of tea tree oil, or your preferred essential oil Directions: Combine sugar and coconut oil in a bowl Add in essential oil Mix together Apply and then rinse using warm water Dry with a clean towel ￼Baking Soda and Oatmeal Treatment I am huge fan of baking soda and how amazing this ingredient is! And rediciliously cheap. Baking soda, which is a great exfoliator, helps reduce and prevent ingrown hairs. Oatmeal has a soothing effect, reducing redness and irritation caused by exfoliation. 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. baking soda 1 cup of water 1 tbsp. ground oatmeal Directions: Mix baking soda and oatmeal together Add water to the bowl Stir until it has a paste-like texture Using a cotton pad, scoop up the mixture Apply to the affected area and let sit for 10 minutes Rinse with warm water ￼Oil-Based Serum if you're particularly sensitive, it's best to avoid overly harsh scrubs. Abrasive scrubs like sugar and salt scrubs do exfoliate the skin but often at the expense of causing excess skin irritation 🔎Ingredients: 1 tbsp. castor oil 1 tbsp. hemp oil (optional) 10 drops tea tree oil Directions: Find a reusable glass bottle Combine castor oil and hemp oil Add tea tree oil to mix Apply combination after shaving to prevent irritation alba BOTANICA - Acne Dote, Face & Body Scrub Oil-Free CeraVe - SA Moisturizing Cream For Rough & Bumpy Skin GLYTONE - KP Kit Amlactin - Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion

Tips from a dermatologist on sunscreen ☀️
Let’s talk about sunscreen ☀️ What’s a good sunscreen to wear? One that is: * Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays) * SPF 30 or higher * Water resistant This will help protect your skin from early skin aging, sunburn, and skin cancer. What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens? Chemical sunscreens work like a sponge, absorbing the sun’s rays. They contain one or more of the following ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. These are often easier to rub into the skin without a white cast. Physical sunscreens (aka mineral sunscreens) act like a shield, sitting on the surface of your skin and deflecting the sun’s rays. These can come on white. They have the active ingredients zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide Reapply every 2 hours when outside in the sun ☀️ Some of my favorites: Tinted: Cerave tinted, la roche posay tinted, alastin CeraVe - Face Sheer Tint Hydrating Sunscreen SPF 30 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 ALASTIN SKINCARE - HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 Not tinted: colorescience, drunk elephant colorescience - Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 What’s your favorite sunscreen?
