Beauty Report: Summer Repair
Sunburn, blisters, and salt-infused hair…not the best souvenirs of your summer vacay, but momentos you take home after a season under the sun. If you’re suffering from sunburn, aloe is the best cure, but don’t forget to sooth those chapped lips at the same time. Infuse life into your hair with a clarifying shampoo, and heal damaged ends with a rich conditioning treatment. Wash off a day of sightseeing with a soothing cleanser, and then rub aching feet with a refreshing treatment. These cure-all beauty products revive, restore, and repair a body aching for a little TLC:
