Believe it or not, your hair also suffers from UV damage. Lathering a small amount of sunscreen through your hair will protect your tresses from chlorine and salt. Generously mist your locks with Ouidad Sun Shield and Sport Leave-In Spray. This light weight spray conditions and protects hair from chlorine, wind, sun, and salt. As an alternative, don’t be afraid to comb through the sunscreen you applied to your body.
Skin hydration defeats the summer sun’s drying and aging effects. During these few intensely heated months, do yourself a favor and moisturize. Try AHAVA Mineral Suncare Sun Protection Anti-Aging Moisturizer, $26. Not only does it contain a sun protection factor, SPF, but it revitalizes skin’s moisture and fights premature aging. For more intense hydration, apply directly after showering while pores are dilated and wrap in a warm towel for five minutes amplifying the skin’s suppleness.
Even though simple, hats’ shielding qualities dramatically help combat harmful rays. However, with all the oils and products applied to our faces as a result of sunscreens, our hairline and foreheads become the perfect forum for pimples. Use an antibacterial wipe to prevent these unwanted blemishes. Dermalogica Skin Purifying Wipes, $18.
