Protecting Your Style During Summer
Thursday, June 5, 2014
Wellness isn’t just about keeping your body
healthy; all of you needs to be
healthy for that harmony to occur. That means, among other things, taking good
care of your hair. Some of you may be asking, “What does my hair have to do
with wellness?” Well, for starters, there are tiny blood vessels that feed your
hair follicles, which help those follicles grow. So, it’s important that your
hair stay in tip-top shape at all times.
With the sun constantly
shining during the summer months, not only is it important to protect your skin
from UV rays, it is also important to protect your hair. Take these tips into
consideration this summer, and you’ll have gorgeous, healthy locks that would make Rapunzel jealous.
Before you head out for a day on
the beach or shopping at the flea market, it is always worthwhile to put on
some sun defense. Besides a big floppy hat, the Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil is a good tool to use to guard your mane. Spray
this tiny bottle of liquid only a few times around your head when you’re
prepping to leave for the day, and an unseen screen of UV-blocking rays forms
around your head. It’s just that simple. Colored hair? No problem; this Aveda
product can be used on treated hair and untreated hair for color protection in
the sun as well. Plus, this baby is assured to work for up to 16 hours — just
don’t forget to reply after prolonged sun exposure.
When you get home
from that long day of swimming or riding roller coasters at Kings Island, there
is more security for that windswept look you spent all day achieving. Hop in
the shower and lather some Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Masque into every inch of your hair. This cream not only
helps moisturize tresses after being outside all day, it also helps prevent
chlorine damage. Talk about a double threat.
Along with the After-Sun Masque, be sure to use
some Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser while in the shower. Use this cleanser weekly
or immediately after exposure to the sun for optimization. This product does
double duty when it comes to sun protection: a unique formula enables it to
work on both hair and body, leaving you without having to wonder if there is
any aloe around the house.
And don’t forget
about one of the most important parts when it comes to summer sun protection:
skin care. Before heading out for the day, use Aveda Inner Light™ Mineral Tinted Moisture in SPF 15. Both UVA and UVB rays won’t
penetrate your skin with Inner Light™. This moisturizer isn’t greasy like many
sunblocks; it is oil-free, leaving your skin feeling like there is nothing
there. Plus, this moisturizer comes in a variety of skin tones, meaning you’ll
find one that fits pale you and one that fits tan you.
significant to all aspects of life. But taking care of yourself doesn’t mean
you have to completely change your daily beauty regimen. Just adding in a few
moments per day to give your hair (and skin) the sun defense they deserve can
make a difference between being healthy and needing to make a pharmacy run to
get some Aloe vera.
