|Savvy Summer Hair & Skin Care|
Looking for easy and affordable ways to keep your hair and skin in good condition during the summer months?
A water resistant sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher is a summer given. Sunscreens should be applied to dry skin at least 15 minutes before going outdoors and should be reapplied after swimming or perspiring.
Spray-On Sunscreen for Hair
Protect your hair and scalp from sun damage by using a spray-on sunscreen.
Keep your lips hydrated and safe from the sun with a lip balm containing SPF.
Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement. They protect the thin skin around your eyes from UV rays. They also keep you from squinting which goes a long way in preventing wrinkles.
Hats are one of the best ways to save your eyes, lips, scalp and hair from sun damage. They are also a fun summer accessory.
In hot weather, wash your face three times a day with a gentle, moisturizing cleanser. Use a toner to unclog pores and rejuvenate skin.
After showering, apply body lotion concentrating on hands, elbows, knees and lower legs. Don’t forget to moisturize your feet.
Switch from oil-based to water-based cosmetics. Water-based makeup is lighter on your skin, with less likelihood of clogging pores.
Drink plenty of water to replenish moisture lost to heat and sweat. It also flushes toxins from the body and keeps your skin looking clear and lustrous.
Chlorine, salt water and the sun can leave hair dry and brittle. Regularly deep condition your tresses by wrapping conditioned hair in a towel and leaving it on for 30-60 minutes. Then rinse.
Get plenty of rest. You will look great and feel even better.
