Happy Friday Friends! While winter has it’s own challenges (hello dry skin), the summer heat and humidity can wreak havoc on an active girl’s hair and skin as well. While I am no expert, I do have a few tried & true Summer Hair & Skin Care Tips to share with you today.
I am embarrassed to admit, that up until recently, I did give too much thought to sunscreen and really loved my bronzed looking skin. Enter the mid 40’s with sunspots and wrinkles and pre cancerous spots and I have (almost) completely changed my tune. Spending so much time running, biking and swimming outside can not only damage your skin but leave it looking not so youthful. These 2 Supergoop products are my must haves for summer sports.
This is by far the best facial sunscreen I have ever used. In the past, I’ve tried to wear other brands and when I sweat they would drip down stinging my eyes. Not good! I apply this to my face about 20 minutes before I run and I’ve never had that problem. It stays put and is easy to rub in.
It’s easy to forget to protect your lips as well. After having such good luck with the Mineral Sunscreen, I was excited to find this lip balm. It’s very light and yet keeps my lips super soft while protecting them.
Hair-Taking care of your hair is challenging even in the best conditions! All of the swimming can really take the color and shine right out of your hair. Before every swim, I wet my hair and then apply conditioner to it before putting on my swim cap. Not only does the conditioner help to keep the chlorine out of your hair, it also helps to keep it from getting all tangled up. Any conditioner will do and I just keep those travel sized bottles in my swim bag.
From running, to going to the pool, and all of the barefoot summer activities, my feet can get really gross if I don’t take care of them. I have a system that I use all year around. Putting a big heap of Aquafor on my feet before bed and then sleeping in my Balega socks helps to keep the rough spots at bay.
Speaking of Balega socks, they have been my go for years. They never give me blisters, slip around or chafe. The quality is amazing and they last forever.
Those are a few of my go Summer Hair & Skin Care Tips. What tips do you have to share with me?
