Have You Seen The Sun Lately?
It finally seems to be gone, winter weather! Time to make forth for the t-shirts, shorts, and sunbathing! While you may be excited we hope you take note and realize the damage the sun can do. UV rays will affect both your skin AND hair. Most of do not consider the damaging effects sun can have on our hair, however UVA and UVB protection is especially critical in protecting and prolonging your hair color.
UV exposure irreversibly damages both the exterior of the hair shaft as well as the cortex interor. So what does that mean? For one it will dry out your hair causing it to be brittle and frizzy, lacking luster, and possibly lighten it if your hair is naturally darker. A solution comes in many forms. Many products bundle UV protection with thermal protection, moisture, and shine. We’ll showcase the Label.M Blow out spray which we provide here at Studio 229 in Seattle.
The Blowout spray is great in that you apply easily on damp hair from roots and then distribute through ends with fingers or comb. It’s a multi purpose aid for volume, thermal and uv protection, body, and shine! Continue to blow dry your hair in normal fashion with whatever tools or if you need to be at work 10 minutes ago, allow to air dry! Now that your hair is protected from the sun and looks fabulous let us show you how you can protect your skin from the sun and keep it looking great.
Now, on to the skin:
Everyone wants that sun tan glow but there are several things to consider before exposing yourself to the damaging rays of the sun. Are you protecting your skin? The easiest way to keep your skin youthful and free from fine lines and wrinkles is to use a daily moisturizer with a SPF. Sun damage to the skin can cause premature aging, sun spots, and even cancer. Our favorite sun protectant is Vera Botania’s Derma Day Cream with SPF 30. It is a light active moisturizer that helps improve skin tone and hydrates with extracts of green tea, aloe vera and rich cocoa butter which protects you from the sun by filtering out UVA and UVB rays.
So welcome summer and enjoy those rays all you want, it’s easy to keep your skin and hair healthy with these great products. Stop in and pick some up today!
