Summer is here!

So summer is finally here! and for me one of the best things of it, is having time for myself cuz I'm always so busy with school homework and projects that I barely find time to do my hair and nails. But off course, don't matter how much I love relaxing I can't afford going to a spa. So I'm always looking for beauty tips, that help me to feel better without leaving my own house, not even for "ingridients".
One of my favorite is the oatmeal and honey facial mask, is so easy and helpfull; you just mix some oatmeal flakes with honey (I don't know the exact measurement) until it looks like a paste, you spread over your face and wait about 20 to 30 minutes, rinse it with lots of water and that's all! You'll have a smother skin!.
Other tip I love is the vinegar hair wash, this is actually very simple. Sometimes you feel like your hair is dirty and no matter how many time you wash it with your regular shampoo it seems to get dirty easier than normal, so the tip is to use vinegar after you wash your hair, let me explain it better: You wash your hair with regular shampoo and conditioner, then you apply vinegar, you can try the regular bottle of the vinegar (it a little unconfortable but you can use that) or you can find a bottle with a spray it would be easier to apply, then you rinse it very very well and just like that you will have a cleaner hair! But wait probably you are thinking "what about the smell?" well personally I don't think it left a smell but if you think it smells or something you can apply some hair treatment afterwards. By the way I learn this from Jaclyn Smith from Sheer Genius!
Last but not least for tired eyes (tell me about it!) you can use tea bags, you just put them in hot water, as if you were doing rehgular tea, them squeeze them for about 5 minutes and let them cool, put them over your close eyes and relax!
I hope you liked my tips, I know there are only three but we have the hole summer and as soon as I proved more of them I will tell you...Share with me your favorite natural beauty tip
