Days of fun in the sun, heat, humidity and chlorine can do a number on skin and hair, leaving behind sunburns, chapped lips, oily skin or even  dreaded green, crunchy hair.

If you have the following best summer beauty hacks there's no need to stay indoors when faced with summer beauty problems.

Just solve these beauty problems with these quick  Summer beauty hair hacks listed below:

For Nasty Sunburn:

If you've ever fallen asleep feeling a little pink, but woken up lobster red, you definitely know the drill.

To soothe red, hot skin, opt for the actual aloe vera house plant itself versus the generic shelf brand of aloe.

The household plant has been used since antiquity to treat skin issues. Remove a few leaves and slice them in half, then rub the liquid side directly onto the burn in a gentle motion.

Even better, before a day out in the sun, fill up an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel from leaves or a bottle.  Keep the aloe vera ice cube in your freezer all season long.

For burn emergencies pop out a cube or two and apply to ailing skin for heavenly cool relief.

For Peeling Burnt Skin:

Exfoliate once a week with a soft scrub and moisturize after ever shower to speed up the peeling process.

Mix together apple cider vinegar and coconut oil.  Apply after exfoliating to give  skin some much needed Tender Loving Care (TLC).

Apple cider and coconut oil combos also soothe burnt or itchy skin.

When in doubt, reach for coconut oil for all Summer sins.  It will soothe skin, lips, hair, hands and feet.

Hair is Dry & Brittle:

Salty water, chlorine and sun can leave tresses dry as the Sahara desert.

Incorporating a soap and alkali-free shampoo into your Summer regimen can help to stabilize hair structure, as well as treat sensitive and delicate scalp conditions.

If you're worried about protecting your hair color from fading or being damaged in the blazing sun, mix 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar (ACV) into a spray bottle.  Spritz through dry hair before going to the beach or out in the sun.

Allow the ACV to soak into the hair for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse it out with lukewarm water.  Finish with a cool rinse to close the cuticle.

If you religiously spritz with ACV you will extend the life and vibrancy of your hair hue.

Ingrown Hair Sprouts Along Bikini Line

Ingrown hairs, especially around the bikini line, can be a major pain during beach season.

For a quick 5-second solution, use a gentle exfoliating treatment like Uni K Wax Ingrown Hair Roll-on. Exfoliating once a week with a shower scrub can also help to further prevent new ones. (UniKWax.com)

Face or Back Acne

Face acne (or bacne!) is never attractive, but is often exacerbated by sweat during the warmer months.

Calm existing breakouts with soap-free cleanser that provides a gentle, deep cleansing of the pores while regulating oil production and preventing new pimples like Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Bar. ($8.99, SebamedUSA.com)

Speaking of Sweat

Dry shampoo is a must for any Summer beauty hacker's tool kit.   Apply to your roots at night before sleep to give the dry shampoo time to absorb oil and sweat while you sleep.

If need be, reapply more in the morning before you leave the house in the morning.

When you blow dry your hair during hot steamy month, simply apply a layer of anti-aspirant to the back of your neck.

Allow it to dry. Blow dry to prevent your neck from doing that ugly sweating while blow drying.

For Chapped, Peeling Lips

As the dry conditions of Summer evaporate the moisture from the body, lips are often left dry and dehydrated.

Apply jane iredale Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper duo for soft, beautiful and oh-so-kissable lips in no time.

Its organic brown sugar gently removes dull, dry skin while the tinted lip plump with shea butter moistens and plumps lips. ($25, janeiredale.com)
