From moisturizing hair oils to SPF foundation, here we compiled a list of top 10 products needed to keep your skin and hair glowing this summer.
1. Face SPF Protection
This is the first thing you should do in the morning before leaving your house. When it comes to protecting your face from UVA and UVB rays, try to find a mineral SPF face cream ( other formulas can be heavy) and keep one in every bag!
2. Body SPF Protection
Sunscreens have a huge role in the sun defense arsenal. Sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer, it also helps to prevent facial brown spots and red veins and it slows down the aging process. You will absolutely regret not having worn sunscreen when you look at your skin 15 years from now. Is that enough?
3. Hair Protectant
The same as your face and body, your hair needs to be protected wisely. UVA and UVB rays can weaken and break the protein bonds in the hair and can destroy the hair color. So, it is really important to take a good care for your hair before going to the beach. Go and seek for products that indicate they protect from sun damage. We recommend hair protectant sprays.
4. Moisturizing Lip Balm
When it comes to sun protection, don’t forget your lips, ever! Since lips naturally have thin skin, sun damage can make the skin even thinner. So you should absolutely have a lip balm featuring SPF in your summer beauty arsenal and your lips will totally look healthy and vibrant!

A vitamin C serum is a product that delivers concentrated Vitamin C, which is very important to keep the wrinkles that can be caused by sun damage away! It stimulates collagen production, which can reduce the signs of aging. Since is a week sunscreen, should be used in conjunction with your SPF face cream.
7. After Sun Body Lotion
After-sun lotions are key in helping to rehydrate the skin. They have soothing and cooling properties, which helps in putting moisture back. And the best part is that by using this product right after the sun exposure can extend your tan. Good to know right?
