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!

Beating Spring Showers – Humidity Proof Hair

Even though it’s May, Spring seems to be delivering all sorts of showers just a little bit late.  All of our May weddings, events, graduation parties and picnics are requiring serious humidity-proof hair, as showers hang in the distance, threatening our sunny plans.  Here are our top three products for fighting humidity, and keeping a style looking great all day long:

Cutler Volumizing Spray Cutler’s Volumizing Spray is by far my favorite humidity proofing product, and it doesn’t even have humidity in the title! My biggest problems with humidity are one either my hair totally flattening and losing curl, or my hair poofing and frizzing out of control. Cutler’s Volumizing Spray both controls these factors in daily styles, but also provides nurturing ingredients and heat protection that keep your hair healthy, reducing these effects from the beginning! Purchase it here for $21.
Some Like It Hot Humidity Proof Bed Head Some Like It Hot product range includes three products that are all uniquely designed to protect against humidity while styling. Including a shampoo, conditioner and weather-neutralizing serum, these products not only protect against frizz from humidity, but also from the damage of heat and from color loss in the sun. Perfect for beach-y summers and sunny weekends! Purchase here, $16-17.
Blow Weather Girl Climate Neutralizing Complex The Blow Weather Girl Climate Neutralizing Complex is a miracle product created by Blow, a company that prides itself on creating products for people who heat style daily. Gentle and nutritive on over-heated hair, Weather Girl locks out humidity by coating hair, while remaining weightless and protecting from frizz. Purchase here for $22.
