Whether you have a dry or an oily scalp MoroccanOil has come out with a product to help you combat those pesky scalp imbalances. MoroccanOil Professional Scalp Treatments are your new secret weapons when it comes to issues with scalp health!
The Oil-No-More Treatment is formulated with ginger oil, astringents and purifying properties to work deep down to help control oil production. This treatment helps to regulate the problem at the source without striping the scalp of needed moisture. It will protect and moisturize the scalp, release the scalp of dandruff caused by excess oil and inflammation of the hair follicle, and use astringent and purifying properties to control the oil circulation in the scalp. To use it, apply directly to the scalp before shampooing and conditioning. It can also be used as a pre-salon treatment to protect your hair from color processing.
But if a dry scalp is what ails you then turn to the protective and restorative MoroccanOil Dry-No-More Scalp Treatment! With essential oils such as lavender, geranium, and argan oil, this treatment rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E helps to control dry itchy scalp and other signs of imbalances. (Use the same way as Oil-No-More.)

Hey guys! It’s Sammy here and I want to talk a little bit about self tanning. Personally, I have never been able to achieve that natural, sun-kissed tan that is so sought after by sun worshippers everywhere. I’m very fair, and so even a few minutes in the sun without a high SPF gets me looking like a tomato (I’m serious, yesterday I was in a convertible for a short ride to work and when I got into the office I noticed my skin was flushed and looked like it was on the verge of a sunburn!)
Which is my main reason that I shamelessly advocate self-tanning or spray tan. What used to be considered tacky and “fake” is now being praised as safer for your skin. You could visit a tanning salon for an airbrush session, or you could save money and do it at home! If you do decide to take the leap and cultivate your own “fake n’ bake” this summer, keep these helpful tips and tricks in mind!
1.) Exfoliating before self-tanning is essential. This is because the ingredient DHA (which is what darkens your skin) clings to dry skin cells, making flaky patches look uneven. It’s best to use a salt scrub pre-application (salt scrubs are grittier than sugar and jojoba scrubs) to create a smooth surface. But make sure it’s oil free! Otherwise it will create a greasy residue that will form a barrier between your skin and the DHA (and you don’t want that).
2.) When it comes to your face, use an oil-free facial scrub to slough off any dead skin, the apply a thin layer of oil free lotion. When you apply your tanner, make sure to push it up into your hairline and don’t forget your neck and ears!
3.) It’s important to moisturize in order to prevent DHA from clinging to the driest spots on your body. Try using petroleum jelly instead of your normal lotion. It’s thicker and stays where you apply it. Put a SMALL amount on your elbows and kneecaps; just enough to moisturize these slightly direr spots. It’s also smart to use it on the cuticles of your fingers and toes!
4.) Latex gloves used to be a favorite of the pros when it came to protecting your palms against orange-y stains. But the rubbery texture and separated fingers often leads to a streaky look on your skin. Your new best friend in self-tanning is the applicator mitt! (Beautisol makes one for around 8 bucks.) Apply my your tanner directly to the mitt and run it over your skin in long, even strokes. Do it from head to toe, too, so you can avoid messing up your stomach be bending over after you’ve tanned it. Skip your back! It’s best to use an aerosol version there.
5.) When using aerosol sprays, make sure pick the same shade you used for the rest of your body. Make sure to roll your shoulders forward and then spray your back from side to side in circular motions. Be sure to sit still for about 30 seconds afterward as the mist falls onto your skin.
6.) After you tan, use a perfumed powder to target sweat-prone spots (like your lower back, your bum, and your boobs) and areas often exposed to friction (like the skin touching your bra straps’ rig pants’ etc) all of which can interrupt the tanning process. Let the tan dry for 5 minutes and the dust yourself with some perfumed body powder. It creates a barrier against your clothes and absorbs sweat (so you don’t get lines or drip marks).
7.) After you mastered the perfect self-tan, don’t forget to keep using a sunscreen!
