Summer means pools, a refreshing cool, tall glass of water, and tanning.
Tips for taking care of your skin and hair while in the pool:
Starting off with hair-
– Before jumping into the pool, rinse your hair in clean water and apply a layer of conditioner and let that soak up into your hair. This will prevent your hair from soaking up the harmful toxins and will leave it healthy!
– Another one is applying a layer of oil onto your hair. This will keep the chlorinated water from getting absorbed by the hair and will leave your hair silky smooth after washing your hair as normal.
Next face and body-
Face: – Apply a thin layer of oil to keep the chemicals from sinking into your skin. After that apply your favorite sunscreen over that for extra protection. Avocado oil is a good natural sunscreen and has many other benefits from using it. For sunscreen, I personally use the Hang Ten classic face spf 30 sunscreen (previously mentioned in another blog). It is 95% natural and doesn’t leave a white film behind.
Body: – The same can be done for the body! Apply oil and then over that sunscreen. Voila! A well protected skin that is ready to take on the summer. I use the Vaseline healthy white spf 23 body lotion. It does the job!
Always remember, when using sunscreen, reapply every couple of hours for maximum protection.
