SUMMER HAIR AND SKIN ESSENTIALS

MUST-HAVES TO PROTECT AND HYDRATE ALL SEASON LONG

 

The longer days of summer are here, and this year we’re enjoying simpler ways to beat the heat. Hosting small backyard barbecues and hitting the hiking trails still calls for protecting and hydrating our skin, but did you know that your hair needs the same kind of care to protect it from the drying effects of the sun? To help prep for sunny days, we’re sharing our essential hair and skin products along with expert rituals.

Here’s everything you need to know to take in summer and not the sun.

 

 

Hair care 101 for summer days

THE ESSENTIAL: nutriplenish leave-in conditioner

 

Your skincare routine includes sun protection and hydration, and your hair care routine should too.

We all know the sun can damage your skin, but what about its effect on your hair? Intense UV rays can dry out hair and deplete the natural lipids that coat and nourish the hair’s surface. This can leave hair brittle and vulnerable, which is why UV protection is essential.

To protect against the drying effects of the sun, we recommend using our paraben and silicone free nutriplenish leave-in conditioner. We created this hair UV protection spray with a vegan formula that contains sand ginger, a naturally derived UV filter. Just as you protect your skin from the sun’s rays, protecting your hair from the drying effects of the sun as part of your daily hair care routine is important to maintaining your hair’s health.

When it comes to hydration, 98% naturally derived* nutriplenish leave-in conditioner is the perfect nourishing spray for moisture-depleted hair. Omega-5-rich suberfood ingredient, organic pomegranate oil, helps replenish dry hair exposed to the sun with nutrient-powered hydration for 72 hours. It’s also the dry hair treatment you need to help achieve lush, visibly healthier hair.

 

THE RITUAL:

Before styling for the day, lightly mist dry or damp hair to protect it against the drying effects of the sun and to add nourishment. For fine-to-medium hair, apply on mid-lengths to ends. For hair that’s more textured, apply from scalp to ends. If you’re looking for the ultimate hair hydration system, the entire nutriplenish collection hydrates and replenishes all hair types and textures, making it perfect for summer and beyond.

THE ESSENTIALS: botanical kinetics collection and daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum SPF 30

 

Although giving your skin the proper care is vital to its health all year long, we spoke with Helga Hefner, Aveda’s Manager of Professional Skin and Spa Education, for an expert opinion on summer skincare routines. She shared that the skin has a tendency to become more sensitive during the summer, due to the fact that we spend more time outdoors, exposing the skin to the harmful effects of the sun and other environmental pollutants and irritants.

Giving your skin extra care for the season starts with the right products and routine. At Aveda, we treat your skin to the protection and hydration it needs with cruelty free formulas that you can feel good about using.

Let’s start with perhaps the most vital need: sun protection. As nature’s way of defending your skin, daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum spf 30 will change the way you think about sunscreen for your face. The non-chemical formula includes 100% mineral-derived UV filters and uses advanced coating technology that glides on sheer and smooth, not chalky. This means you’ll love the weightless feel against your skin—no white residue here.

 

daily light guard provides UVA/UVB defense with SPF 30 sunscreen by using our unique mineral technology that helps reflect UV rays before they reach your skin. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide rest on the skin’s surface and reflect UVA—which penetrates clouds and windows—and UVB light to help protect skin from damage.

 

In addition to UV protection, daily light guard acts as your plant-derived pollution defense, with an antioxidant blend of ginger extracts that helps defend against free radical damage. Environmental pollution is the most common cause of skin damage, such as loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to make daily protection a habit.

 

When it comes to the rest of your summer skincare routine, Helga recommended picking products based on your skin type—dry or oily. “Most people have skincare challenges because they are not using the correct products,” Helga told us. The botanical kinetics collection includes powerful, essential products for both skin types that help to maintain skin’s healthy, balanced state.

 

 

Helga explained that it’s important to keep the skin cleansed and free of impurities in the summertime, without stripping or drying the skin. For oily skin, botanical kinetics purifying gel cleanser uses coconut and babassu-derived surfactants to gently foam away makeup, oil and impurities, while helping to normalize skin.

 

If you have dry skin, you’ll want to use botanical kinetics purifying creme cleanser instead. The rich creme is extra mild on your skin as it cleanses, and is formulated with plant-derived oils to leave it soft and smooth.

 

The key to balanced skin, Helga shared, is toning and replenishing hydration in the morning after cleansing. For oily skin, saturate skin with botanical kinetics toning mist to dissolve surface oil and replenish moisture. For dry skin, using botanical kinetics skin toning agentwill help restore your skin’s moisture balance and provide your skin with a burst of refreshment.

 

“Your skin may become oilier and more sensitive in the summer months due to the heat and humidity and by being more active,” Helga told us. Using a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer like botanical kinetics hydrating lotion will help leave your skin feeling refreshed with a gentle touch.

 

If your skin is craving a bit more hydration, substituting with botanical kinetics intense hydrating soft creme will instantly replenish your skin’s moisture reserve. These quick-absorbing lotions and plant-derived essentials are the ultimate foundation for healthier-looking summer skin.

 

 

THE RITUAL:

 

Step 1: Apply your preferred botanical kinetics cleanser over damp face and throat with upward and outwards circles to remove impurities, dirt and debris. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

 

Step 2: After cleansing, saturate skin with your preferred toner, botanical kinetics toning mist or botanical kinetics skin toning agent.

 

Step 3: Next, dispense a pearl-size drop of botanical kinetics hydrating lotion or botanical kinetics intense hydrating soft cremeinto your hand. Starting at your throat, apply lotion and work your way up to your face.

 

Step 4: Grab your daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum spf 30 and shake well. Smooth onto face and décolleté as the final step in your morning skincare ritual. For sunscreen use, reapply at least every 2 hours.
