Summer Fragrance & Frizz: FragranceNet.com Expert Gives Top Summer Scents & Frizzy Hair Tamers Part 2
Our friend Patti Kapla, beauty aficionado and V.P. at FragranceNet.com filled us in on how to choose the best fragrance for summer. Now shes's back to help us pick perfumes that even help repel pesky mosquitoes! Check out her summer tips!
Patti, do perfumes ever expire?
Perfumes only expire if you do not take proper care of them. Keep all fragrance in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to ensure a longer shelf life. They usually last 3 to 5 years from their production date.
Are there actually fragrances that help repel pesky mosquitoes?
Floral and fruity fragrances will naturally attract mosquitoes. If you want them to stay away I would recommend essential oils such as Citronella, Peppermint, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Marigold. Aura Cacia makes a variety of essential oils that could help, like Citronelle Java Essential Oil ($4).
What are your best sunburn-soothing tips?
I would recommend Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care ($33) It is used to pamper and revitalize skin after sun exposure and will immediately reduce redness, irritation and sunburn. It intensely hydrates as well as reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Any products to tame frizzy and damaged summer hair?
For flawless and sleek locks that can stand through any type of weather, (hello summer thunderstorms!) try these frizz-fighting goodies to help your gorgeous styles last and last, all day long:
Ouidad Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo ($18) is a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser designed to provide long lasting protection from frizz and flyaways.
Bed Head Control Freak Conditioner Frizz Control and Straightener ($10) can help achieve the most sleek and straight locks.
It's a 10: Miracle Daily Conditioner ($16) detangles, imparts incredible softness, reduces frizz build up and hydrates hair and scalp. It restores shine, infuses strength and vitality with its Thermal styling protection.
