Summer sun care + a giveaway!
We all know that sunscreen should be an essential part of your year-round skincare routine, but with summer coming up, many of us will be spending a lot more time outside, on the beach, and lying in the sun.
One product we're loving for summer is PHYTOPLAGE to protect our hair from the sun. We spoke with Phyto Expert & National Educator Christyn Nawrot about why it's important to protect our hair, especially during the summer months.
"During the summer, people notice their hair is more dry, loses color more quickly, and shows signs of friction damage from windy, salty air. But the truth is environmental damage impacts our hair every day of the year. The great thing is that there are easy ways to protect your hair every day. For the best hair (and skin!) protection-you can never go wrong by simply wearing a hat. However, there are also lightweight broad spectrum sprays to protect your tresses. I tell my clients to keep a bottle of PHYTOPLAGE Protective Sun Veil by their keys and spray it right over their finished style before they walk out the door. It's greaseless, weightless UV protection and it creates great shine," shares Phyto Expert & National Educator, Christyn Nawrot.
As we look forward to warmer weather, we're looking for new sunscreens and sun care products -- and the perfect travel bag -- that can make a relaxing day on the beach, whether you're getting ready for a cool spring break or a hot summer day.
