Summa' time Sun Care Love!

Summer is around the corner and it’s time to build in some warm weather Aveda care into my routine. Here’s a snap shot of of my favorite ways to say hello to summer!

Sun Care Hair and Body Wash

During the hot summer months, I love to use Sun Care Hair and Body Wash - mostly as a body wash. This pearly, delightful concoction has a bright, summery, and citrusy aroma (reminds me of the beach), and effectively cleanses my skin without stripping away any moisture. It’s great to use after a lot of outdoor time on a hot day. If you like to get in a lot of pool time, you’ll want to use this as well. Why? It’s a color-safe formula with a corn-derived binder that gently removes chlorine, salt, and product residue. Squeaky clean, no dryness!

Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque

The magic in this masque is morikue protein (try saying it fast five times!), which helps moisturize to restore hair weakened by sun, chlorine, and salt exposure. Plant oils like certified organic tamanu and coconut oils condition and moisturize hair. Apply this intensive creme masque after you cleanse with Sun Care. You’ll leave it on for 2-5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Restored!

Sun Care Protective Hair Veil

This lightweight mist is water resistant and defends against harmful UV rays to protect your tresses, and to minimize damage and dryness. Plant power is behind the UVA/UVB protection, derived from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils that help protect hair from the drying effects of the sun. It’s the same delicious Sun Care aroma you know and love. Just spray on damp hair before and after sun exposure - and you can reapply as needed. I also find that this works well on dry hair, especially if you plan to spend time in the sun after styling.

Daily Light Guard Defensive Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30

While this is a must-use all year long, sun protection during the summer is a necessity - especially since the sun is stronger and more intense. This mineral derived, non-chemical sunscreen is lightweight, and delivers dual UVA/UVB protection - and it doubles as an excellent primer for Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisturizer or Mineral Dual Foundation. An antioxidant blend with ginger extracts helps defend against free radical damage, and it will not clog your pores. No matter your skin type, you can use this product.

Enjoy the sunnier side of life without compromising your hair and skin health!
