Summer can be such a beautiful time of year but it can also wreck havoc on your skin, hair and nails.

What’s a girl to do when she wants to have fun in the sun yet come out of it looking good? Protect, protect, protect! Here are a few tips to keep you in top shape during the hot months.

  • Hair. After much time in the sun, your hair may begin taking on a greenish tint. To avoid this, wear a wide brimmed hat or baseball cap when swimming. Another option is to wet your hair before you head outdoors and apply leave-in conditioner to it. This will put a shield on your hair and protect it from the chlorine that tends to turn your hair green.

  • Skin. Always, always wear sun protection. I’d recommend wearing at least a number 30 sunblock on your skin but make sure it protects against UVA and UVB rays. Never leave home without it, pool or no pool.

  • Nails. Your nails will tend to dry out, chip, and peel with extended time in sun and water. Try applying a hand cream every night before bed and make sure you rub it deep into your cuticles. Wear a clear polish or your favorite color on your toes and fingernails. This will keep your nails from turning a yellowish tone when left bare.

There you go! Summer tips for your fun in the sun!

Beautiful Blessings,

That's really cool! For me, my blonde hair gets darker in the sun.
