This summer, it’s all about the bohemian trend. Think romantic, bohemian curls and radiant, clear skin. Because we are not all blessed with beautiful curls and clear skin, here are some tools that will help you achieve this look
- Bohemian curls: A curling wand – Enrapture Encode Totem Styler, £74.99
Although it is on the pricier side with £74,99 it is definitely a bargain among all curling wands, considering that you can create more than 20 different styles with it! This hair styler has independent heat zones that set to different temperatures using the encoder dialler. This enables you to create ringlets, bohemian curls, soft waves and much more by encoding your look. It uses a titanium plate technology, which means that it has a super fast heat up and an instant heat recovery that easily styles even the thickest hair. The polished titanium will guarantee snag-free shiny curls, which will help you achieve the pretty, bohemian curls.Available nationwide from Boots, Selfridges, John Lewis,Argos.
- Clear skin: A facial cleansing brush – Rio Sonicleanse, £49.99
You will probably be surprised why I wouldn’t recommend the Clarasonic cleansing brush? That’s easy: why would you want to pay £155 for a brush that does the same job as the Rio Sonicleanse brush foronly £49.99? Because it uses the same micro-pulsating high frequency sonic cleansing action as the original clarasonic, it is the perfect dupe and will you help achieve a clear complexion by gently loosen dirt and oil to cleanse your pores. The head pulses at 10,000 a minute and it’s a fraction of the cost of a clarasonic- the perfect bargain this summer if you ask me.
Glowing skin: A peel or microdermabrasion – Rio Microderma Kit, £29.99
A microdermabrasion is recommended by dermatologists for visibly brightening and rejuvenating the complexion for that all important summer glow. While a microdermabrasion at a facialist can cost £50, you can get your own tool for as little as £29.99. Regular use will help even out skin tone , it helps accelerate natural skin renewal and gives a fresh and glowy appearance to the skin. Again- a real bargain in my books.
