Beat the After Sun Blues!

So here we are, the week after Memorial Day, enjoying the first warm days of summer (at least that’s what’s happening here in the Midwest!).  We all flocked to the lake or to barbecues on Monday, stayed out all day, and now are suffering from our very first sunburn of the summer.  Here’s a refresher on sun care for your skin and hair during the summer months ahead:

1.  PREVENTION:  As your mother and health professionals everywhere can tell you, the best way to care for a sunburn is to prevent it from happening in the first place.  Especially with the prevalence of skin cancer among our generation, we must be careful to protect ourselves from the damaging sun.  Here are some of our favorite protective sun products:

Sunscreen & Sun Prevention for Hair Skin and Nails

Coola (SPF 45) is one of our favorite classic sunscreens, providing powerful protection, custom made for those leading an active outdoor life.  Endorsed by the American Lifeguard Association, this sweat-proof formula is the best we’ve got!

If you’re looking for a mineral alternative to classic sunscreen, Alba Botanica’s Natural Mineral Sunscreen (SPF 30) uses a chemical-free formula that provides excellent protection from the sun without compromise.

Orly’s Sunscreen for Nails is a must-have.  As you beach-babes know, after long hours in the sun, your manicure can become discolored and faded.  Sunscreen for Nails is a high-shine topcoat that protects the colors beneath it with its UV absorbent formula.

Rene Furterer’s Protective Summer Oil (KPF 90) uses sesame and castor oils with UV sunscreen to ensure protection for exposed hair while swimming and sunbathing.  It’s waterproof formula is a must for any beach bag.

2.  TREATMENT:  We know that there will be days that we didn’t plan ahead and didn’t apply the sunscreen as much as we should have.  Here are some treatments to refresh skin and hair after long hours in the sun:

Sun Care Aloe Vera Sunscreen Hair Treatment

The absolute best in the business, Hempz After Sun Gel soothes heat and pain from sun-burnt skin, prevents peeling and uses the nurturing qualities of hemp seed oil and tea tree oil to start repairing skin damage and even minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles!

Bed Head Some Like It Hot Heat & Humidity Resistant Serum is not only treatment oriented, but also for prevention.  It, along with the Some Like it Hot Shampoo and Conditioner provide a shield to help hair that will be in the sun and water constantly.  This product in particular, though, is essential after sun, taming frizz and re-moisturizing burnt-out hair.

Rene Furterer Repairing After Sun Shampoo is specifically designed to combat the drying effects of sun, salt water and even chlorine, enriched with palm butter to restore shine and softness to your hair! Awesome.

So, enjoy the sun, ladies, but care for yourself while you’re doing it! Check out these products and more at http://www.beautyofasite.com to help you enjoy the summer in style!

I was so excited to see that Clean had a new fragrance out. I actually saw it on HSN or QVC one night, but I had bought my EDP from you. So I was thrilled to see you had it on your site too… the scent of this spray is clean and crisp, and I love that it is not flowery or overpowering. It is truly different from any other Clean scent. I get compliments on it all the time!

Produce-Fresh & Straight from the Market

Fresh Body Market Chocolate Milk Bath

Chocolate Milk Bath

After being cooped up during the winter, I desire nothing more than something fresh once March hits.  I start eating as much fruit as I can get my hands on, and I look forward to the first warm day when I can throw my windows open!

My skin, I’ve found, has those same freshness cravings.  So many of the products and soaps I use on my skin contain harsh chemicals.  I may look the way I want, but some of those ingredients can simply wreak havoc on my body.  Luckily, Fresh Body Market offers a complete line of fresh-off-the-shelves bath and body products made of organic, natural ingredients.  Each product is even packaged in a market-like container, to remind you and your loved ones that they are using the freshest formulas available to nurture and pamper your skin.

This month at Beauty of a Site, we’re offering all Fresh Body Market products at 10% off.  It’s the perfect opportunity to give your skin that freshness it’s been yearning for.  Not sure where to start?  Our best selling product at Beauty of a Site is the Chocolate Milk Bath (pictured right).  A perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon, this adorable bubble bath looks just like  jug of chocolate milk! ( Also available in coconut and strawberry).

Rescue Thinning Hair & Look Your Best!

Clinicure by JoicoWith Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s important to clean up your look for the lovely lady (or handsome man!) in your life. For many, this includes dealing with the frustrations of thinning hair or receding hairlines.  At Beauty of a Site, we’ve seen incredible results with one of our newest products- Clinicure, by Joico.

This revolutionary line of products for thinning hair uses a completely botanical formula that combines proven natural ingredients along with cutting edge science.  Resulting in an extremely effective product (without harmful chemicals) Clinicure promises to help produce thicker hair- at different stages of hair loss!

Part of the effectiveness of Clinicure’s formula is its attention to individual needs, and the realization that at every stage of hair loss, different formulas are necessary.  Thus, Clinicure offers products for early stages of hair loss as well as advanced stages.  Have chemically processed hair?  Clinicure also divides its formulas up into natural hair & chemical processed hair, to make sure that the ingredients create the optimum hair growth in your individual hair situation.

The easiest way to enjoy the immediate results of Clinicure is to try one of their four starter kits, which include all three products to nurture and strengthen your hair.  Choose either natural or chemically processed hair, and then whether your hair is in the early or later stages of thinning.  Use your starter kit daily and watch for incredible results!
