When summertime comes around, you better believe we soak up as much sun as possible. It’s the season that calls for playing, tanning, and swimming in gorgeous weather. Unfortunately, too much sun, salt, and sand exposure is real and can be way more damaging than you’d think! If you plan to be a beach (or pool) bum this summer, don’t forget to protect your beautiful self with these products.
While you're having fun in the sun -
As much as we love summer fridays, too much salt and sand in your hair can seriously dry out your strands. Don’t sacrifice beautiful beach waves for brittle hair! After a day in the ocean, spritz Leave-In Mist throughout to revive dried out hair and replenish moisture. OR before going in the waves, add Leave-In and put your hair in a braid, it'll keep your strands moisturized and your hair detangled! Plus it comes in a Travel Size for all the summer jet-setters!
Everyone knows to lather up the sunscreen before laying out in the sun, but do you apply SPF to your scalp too? Even after consistently applying sunscreen, many of us will find our scalps burned from the sun after a sunny day without a hat. Supergoop will keep your head sunburnt free with their Poof Part Powder without sacrificing your locks to hat hair. Spritzing the product down your part before heading outside will give your scalp some serious sun relief.
Don't have time to run home before happy hour? Bring along a mini Sea Spray to add to your damp hair, scrunch in and let air dry for voluminous, messy beachy perfection.
Post sun -
After a day under the sun it always feels amazing to take that shower to get off all the salt and sand. We love to wash with Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner to soften stiff locks and make them fresh and bouncy again. Going on vacation? No worries we've got these ladies in TSA friendly sizes - Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
Protect the skin you're in while you're having fun -
Sunkissed is our favorite beauty look too, but we’re definitely not a fan of sun damage, especially when it comes to a sensitive part of our face like the eyes. We've seen these little cuties on insta and our office loves to try new products so we're excited to keep SPF30 on our lids all summer long with Supergoop’s Shimmershade.
Soft, supple lips will never not be in so stay hydrated and add our favorite Fresh Sugar Sport Treatment lip balm that to treat chapped lips AND add SPF 30. The best of both worlds!
After the sun -
After sun care is just as important as in the sun care. When we start to feel dry or flakey after a pool trip one of our fave moisturizers to grab is Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer . It adds enough hydration to revive sun dried skin without overdoing it, because days in the heat call for lightweight finishes.
We all know the feeling of coming home from the beach and feeling like your skin is on fire. Cool down with COOLA ER+ Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion. This aloe infused cream will make your body feel healed and hydrated.
Want to get your glow even before you step out the door? Supergoop Glow Stick Sunscreen will give you an all over dewy highlight with added SPF. No more waiting until the end of summer to finally look sunkissed!
If all else fails, the best way to keep your body happy and healthy this summer is by reapplying a classic sunscreen. That doesn’t mean it can’t have a fun twist! COOLA Classic Body Sunscreen is also available in a guava mango scent. Nothing screams summer like sun protection and fruity flavors!
