6 Essential At-Home Beauty Products
Do you have everything you need to keep looking your best, even when you’re stuck at home?
While things have finally started to reopen across Ontario—we aren't open yet, but you’ll be the first to know when it happens—most of us are still stuck inside. But with warm weather (make that a heat wave) and physical distancing guidelines starting to relax, we all want to look our best!
We've been receiving many questions about the best products our customers can buy to maintain their skin and hair health. While nothing is quite like visiting our boutique for a full professional treatment, we put together this list of what we believe are the six essential at-home beauty products that no one should be without!
An unavoidable fact about the summertime is perspiration. That’s the ladylike word for sweat. Ick. Whether it’s after a workout or you’re just feeling overheated, there’s got to be a way to cleanse your skin without resorting to several showers a day or washing your face every few hours, right?
The answer is Kaia Wipes! These bamboo facial cleansing cloths are perfect when you’re on-the-go. They’re loaded with natural ingredients like honey, sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, and more, and they’re also 100% biodegradable. Great for you AND the environment!
Kaia Dry Shampoo
When it comes to skin and hair health, the last thing you want is to have daily hot showers. They can irritate your skin and dry out your hair. If you feel like you need a good hair wash, try Kaia Dry Shampoo instead. It could solve your summertime hair problems.
This overnight dry shampoo comes in formulations for both blondes and brunettes. It will absorb all oil, sweat, and odors from your hair and scalp, boosting volume and texture while helping to prevent the need for super frequent washing or blow-drying.
It's important to remember that, while you’ll get your best results by leaving Kaia Dry Shampoo in your hair overnight for at least four hours, you can use it at any time for an instant refresh!
Collagen is one of those essential ingredients that’s a must for healthy skin, hair, bones, and nails. The problem is that our ability to generate collagen decreases after our early 20s. But that's not a problem because we can supplement with collagen to keep our bodies healthy!
You don't want to put just any collagen in your body though. A lot of the collagen options out there are filled with junk that you don’t want to consume. That’s why we recommend withinUs collagen, which is entirely free from artificial colours, flavours, additives, preservatives, and stabilizers. As it's a marine collagen processed using natural enzymes, it also has a much higher bioavailability than other commercially-available collagen.
So, how do you use it? Simply put it into your coffee, tea, or oatmeal, and be secure in the knowledge that it's free of sugar and fillers. It's just the boost you need every summer morning!
Graydon Face Glow
Graydon Face Glow is a product you never knew you needed until you’ve tried it for the first time.
It's a lightweight moisturizing primer that illuminates your healthy-looking skin, but there’s far more to it. This multi-purpose moisturizer balances your skin, smoothes texture, and even diffuses the appearance of lines. Graydon says that it will show off your "no-makeup" look, and we have to agree! It's a great source of moisture for your skin, it’s anti-aging, and it will have you looking your absolute best.
France Luxe Pony
Even though businesses have started to reopen, hair salons aren't allowed to open quite yet. That means long, overgrown hair is going to be a problem for the foreseeable future, right? Not necessarily!
What you need is a beautiful accessory that will keep your long hair pulled back, and that's just what France Luxe Ponies are for! Coming in a variety of styles, these non-damaging ponytail holders are a quick and easy way to look your best at a minute's notice! And they won’t cause any strain or fray to your locks. We think they’re the BEST ponies out there!
LoveFresh Hand Wash/LoveFresh Body Butter
Ok, so, technically, this entry takes our list from six to SEVEN essential at-home beauty products, but believe us when we say that we couldn't leave these two LoveFresh products off the list!
LoveFresh Hand Wash comes in six different all-natural scents. It's SLS free, contains elder flowers and chamomile, and is incredibly gentle on your skin so you can wash your hands as many times as you need throughout the day: a must with COVID-19 out there.
The LoveFresh Body Butter also comes in several different all-natural scents. It's hydrating formula is loaded up with Aloe Vera, Chamomile, White Willow bark, and Calendula extracts. Because it's super absorbent, your skin will feel incredibly soft and smooth after every application.
The real beauty of these two products is that they work as a dynamic duo. With all of the handwashing we're doing, your hands can get super dried out. However, LoveFresh body butter locks in your moisture, sealing any cracks resulting from overwashing. After all, we don't want any dry hands, as COVID-19 and other bugs can get into the cracks and crevices!
We don’t recommend products lightly. Everything we recommend is all-natural or we wouldn’t carry it in our boutique. We’re incredibly picky about this and we've done extensive research to make sure that all of the products meet our high standards and, therefore, also meet yours! If you would like to order any of these products through us here at Thair Hair Boutique & Spa, don’t hesitate to get in touch! And we look forward to seeing you very soon.
