Beach Tips That Will Keep You Looking Great During The 4th Of July

Every one loves spending there 4th of July at the beach or barbecuing with the family. Looking good while being in the pool or any water is not usually easy and can cause drying of your skin and hair. These are some great tips to keep your hair and skin, looking great, and feeling soft.

Sunscreen
Using sunscreen is the best form of protection against UVA (anti-aging rays) and UVB (burning rays). Any form of SPF will do, (especially if you still want to get some color), and it is best to use a spray form that is water proof. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before doing any outdoor activity, and if you are going to be in the water, be sure to reapply your sunscreen every 3 to 4 hours to keep from getting burned. 

Body Lotion/Face Moisturizer
Even if you are not going to be in the water, it is important to keep your skin moisturized, as well as protected from sun damage. Aphrodite’s Head Esthetician Susu recommends to use Epionce’s Active Shield Lotion. It has an SPF of 30, and is great for all skin types. It is perfect for your face and body, just do not apply on your eyelids. It is also great for everyday use. It offers protection against UVA and UVB rays, and is also Paraben- Free.


Hair Protection
Before you go out into the sun, your hair needs to be protected. Aphrodite Stylist Tina recommends to use Paul Mitchell’s Color Protect Locking Spray. The spray offers UVA and UVB protection for your hair. It absorbs into your hair and extends the life of your color. It also adds a great shine. Use this everyday after styling your hair and before leaving the house. 

While your at the beach, your hair needs protection just as much as your skin does. Your hair is damaged from being in water, as well as from the sun. While your at the beach, Aphrodite Stylist Emily recommends to have the Healthy Sexy Hair Beach Duo with you. It contains a Soy Renewal Beach spray, which is great to spray on your hair just after getting out of the water. It is a leave in conditioner, that keeps moisture in, while protecting and healing the hair from environmental damage. It also contains the Soya 22 in 1. This is a leave-in treatment, that absorbs into the hair shaft to rebuild and protect the hair from roots to ends. They work off each other and are made from soy and argan oil.



Make-up For the Beach
While your at the beach, you want the look of fresh, bare skin on your face, without really having no make-up on. The best things to keep on hand are a tinted lip balm (that has UV protection), and waterproof mascara. The lip balm is great to add a pop of color to your lips, while protecting them from getting sunburned and becoming dry. Pink is usually a great shade to go with it. Wearing waterproof mascara is great because it will really make your eyes pop, and you do not have to worry about getting raccoon eyes from your mascara running. Reapply your lip balm every hour or so to keep your lips extra moisturized.


These tips will help keep your hair and skin looking great during your 4th of July weekend. Have a Happy 4th of July!!!
