Get Ready For Summer!

By  |  0 Comments

So summer is coming rapidly and as exciting as that may be, it also poses a threat to our skin & hair. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun in the sun! Here are a few things to help you get ready for summer and maintain healthy skin and hair through the sun & heat!

Seriesse SPF 30 – I use this faithfully! Protecting your skin from the sun is necessary no matter what your skin tone is. SPF 30 is good for most but if you are prone to sunburn you may want to opt for a higher SPF. For those who love to tan, no worries, as sunscreen does not prevent you from tanning. The purpose is to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. If early wrinkles, sunspots and sunburn aren’t enough reason to remember to slap on some sunscreen…well think about skin cancer!

Celluduction – Anyone can get cellulite regardless of age or weight. Yup, skinny minnie’s get it too! I read somewhere that it can actually be hereditary. There’s no simple cure for cellulite but there are preventative measures you can take as well as ways to make it less noticeable in appearance. We like our dimples on our faces, not thighs & tushy’s. Use Celluduction daily after bathing or showering to firm up that skin!

You can also nix your normal body lotion and replace it with a firming lotion to compliment Celluduction or for a quick touch up through out the day. You can’t miss the firming lotions in your local drugstore or beauty shop as they all scream “FIRMING” on the containers!

DermaBlend Leg & Body Cover – Want to cover up scars, stretch marks or tattoos on your body? This is made specifically for body blemish concealing. An extra perk is is has SPF 15 and lasts up to 16 hours!

Body Acne – Body acne can be mild or severe but summer heat and sweat probably make it worse. Neutrogena has great body wash and lotions for all skin types to prevent blemishes. Because everyone’s skin is different I won’t recommend a specific product as it really depends on your situation. Follow up by using MD Formulations Vit-A-Plus Body Clearing Complex Spray and you should make it through the summer with far less breakout, if any.

Shaving Woes – Razor bumps & ingrown hairs are annoying and even painful. Try Tend Skin for prevention. Or Completely Bare Bikini Bump Blaster as bikini bumps are not cute accessories for our beach attire!

Redken All Soft Heavy Cream Treatment
– Redken is my ultimate fave in hair care products. This particular product is great for those days when your hair feels dry…summer necessity! After shampooing, leave this on for at least 5 minutes for super soft hair! Leave it on for 10-15 minutes for best results or very dry hair.
