Summer Ideas For A Baby Beauty

School's out for summer! Are you babysitting or hanging out with an ultra-girly toddler? I've got some fun beauty ideas to keep the budding beauty-nista in your life busy and beautiful during lazy summer days.
  1. Small Starlet. There's nothing more fun then playing with your hair. While you're getting gorgeous for a night out, wrap a few velcro rollers (no heat!) on your little one and make her feel like a superstar!
  2. Flower Girl. Every girl has fond memories of braiding in their childhood. It's a fantastic summer pastime and evokes the lazy days of summer. Now, accessories will help kick up your plaits a notch. Create flower garlands and interweave ribbons into your Beauty's braids for a bohemian and tousled effect.
  3. Manicured Mademoiselle Keep the little miss in your life polished and pretty with a subtle manicure. File and buff nails lightly and apply a coat of clear or sheer pink lacquer for sweet tips. You can go for a bright summer shade too, but make sure you have mom's permission first.
  4. Solar Chick. It's never to early to learn about SPF! Teach her about sun protection and why it's so important to use sunscreen every day. If you have a baby-friendly SPF on hand, apply a patch test on her hand to show her how sunscreen blocks dangerous rays. Remember, always use a physical blocker (with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide) on kids because chemical sunscreens can irritate their sensitive skin.
  5. Fruity & Feminine. Need a summer beauty activity that doesn't involve TV or the Internet? Look to your kitchen, a haven for all-things DIY! Use seasonal fruits for a myriad of beauty ideas. For a fruity edible mask, mix your favorite fruit with olive oil, yogurt, and oatmeal and apply a thin layer on skin. You can also use dark berries (rich in antioxidants) as an all-natural custom lip stain on your baby Beauty. Crush up a blackberries or dark cherries and dab on the center of her lips for a just-bitten pout. After, you both can enjoy a healthy berry snack! She'll feel glam, and you avoid the sugar influx of Kool-Aid. When health meets beauty, it's a win-win.
