Frizzy hair or sweaty skin is unpleasant I know, but sunstroke is serious, okay? And yes, I am pale AF so I know these things.
So I collected some basic remedies for you to enjoy a sun-safe and sweat-proof season so you can be hotter than the sun!
Not a coincidence, that sunscreen is at the top of the list. It’s the most essential item in this season and not only on the beach. However, buying sunscreen is not as easy as it used to be. Take your time to look at the ingredients and find your preferences, but in any case, here are some general guidelines:
Your sunscreen should
- be dermatologist approved
- be “broad-spectrum” (protects against both UVA and UVB rays)
- have an SPF of at least 30
- NOT contain oxybenzone
Price: $ 35.99
I have sensitive skin and I easily get sunburn and sun allergy, so when it goes to find a quality sunscreen I don’t cheap out.
La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 60 is recommended for sensitive and problematic skin, is oil-free and fragrance-free which makes it light and fast-absorbing.
Price: $ 36
EltaMD is another product I recommend. It’s formulated with zinc oxide, a natural mineral compound. It is also made for sensitive skin prone to acne, rosacea or hyperpigmentation. It has a really smooth and light texture thanks to the oil-free formula.
Price: $ 32
If you seek a quick remedy after a day at the beach, COOLA’s After Sun Body Lotion is there to cool things down. The antioxidants and nourishing, soothing ingredients will help your skin to stay hydrated and healthy.
The Lavender, Aloe Vera, and Rosemary Extract gives moisture to the sun-damaged skin and smells heavenly!
Use it anytime you need to refresh and hydrate your skin. The Aloe Vera soothes the exposed skin, the Mint combined with Lavender has a cooling and calming effect to give your skin a quick relief. This light mist can be a steady company for the whole summer.
Get tan, Baby!
Price: $ 45
For a long time, I didn’t use self-tanner and bronzer because it was never even on my skin. Then I found the Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish, which glides easily and evenly on to the skin. Use it on your body to instantly get a smoother, darker skin or mix it with foundation to get a glowing base for my makeup.
Price: $ 27.72
This tinted lotion offers a slower but even and solid tanning. It has a nice smell and gives a very natural look. The lotion will make your skin soft and hydrated and the creamy texture makes it easy to apply.
Price: $ 26.59
Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Vanilla Bean, Tropical Mango, Honey, and Chamomile… The EOS Lip Balms are so yummy, they alone will give you a true summer feeling. But if that’s not enough, the Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil soothe your lips and the antioxidant-rich Vitamin E has a deeply hydrating and conditioning effect.
Price: $ 11.99
This silky soft Liquid Bronzer instantly brightens and illuminates the skin. It can be used alone as a highlighter or a bronzer or mixed with foundation for a solid, glowing look. It doesn’t contain fragrance or paraben so your skin can breathe in the summer heath.
Price: $ 11.94
Another product I always have with me. It cleans and moisturizes the skin and gives an immediate boost of refreshment. These soft wipes remove the makeup, dirt, and impurities. Use it at the end of the day or in the daily hustle to instantly feel fresh.
Price: $ 25.20
We all know that the hair is extremely exposed in the summer. The sun, the heat, and the chloric or salty water all damage the hair. The Truss Miracle Summer Shampoo (as the name implies) protects your hair from all of that!
Price: $ 14.99
This hair remedy revitalizes and protects the sun-damaged and dry hair. The special vegan blend helps detangle and condition the frizzy locks. The sunflower seed oil and quinoa protein restores moisture, repair damage, and prevents split ends. Perfect for all hair types and will leave your hair smooth and shiny.
Personal favorite: Finding a good shampoo is always crucial for me because my hair is more than problematic (thin hair but still always messy and hard to handle). In summer it’s even worse because of all the elements. The Truss Miracle Summer Shampoo not only cleans my hair gently, but also protects from the damaging effects of the sun and pool chemicals. My hair is visibly stronger and softer. New fav for sure!
