The summer season sees many of us complain about sunburn and freckles along with the frizzy and thinning of hair. Summer is at its peak and the blazing sun’s harmful effects make most of us stay put indoor. The season has a long spell of heat and snag inflicted on the people and at its height causes trouble for the skin and hair.
All of us are exposed to the sun, while walking on the road or by sitting near the window. Are you aware of the ultraviolet rays of the sun, to be the major source of skin cancer and premature skin aging? The sweltering sun rays penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, causing prolonged damage like wrinkles, pigmentation, sun burns, freckles and tanning. People with sensitive skin often fall victim to small red blisters known as sun rash. The basis of the eruption of these rashes can be detected in heat and humidity, which obstructs the open pores of the skin. Sun light also creates trouble to the hair that turns frizzy and broken (split end).
Do any, off the shelf sunscreen lotion, available in the super market help to guard the skin from the sun? World Travel Magazine beauty editor picked up a few recommended products and tried them out to see how effective the products were when it came to skin care in the summer. Aveda’s Summer Solutions came out on top of the list after a two-week trial session. We reviewed a combination of the Inner Light™ Sheer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and Sun Care™ After-sun Treatment Masque.
Inner Light™ Sheer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 is an oil free moisturizer that’s light weight, feels almost invisible to the touch and formulated without parabens. Its quick absorbing tinted moisturizer with mineral derived SPF 15 sunscreen protects against harmful UVA & UVB rays. Although it is only SPF 15, it is suitable for a busy on the go city life. A day at the beach would require something much more powerful. We rate it 4 of 5 in our rating index.
For the protection of the hair, we tried out Aveda’s Sun Care™ After-sun Treatment Masque. An intensive cream masque, it restores sun-exposed hair, moisturizes and helps defend against free radicals and the effects of sunlight. The protein helps restore weakened hair, the shea butter & coconut oil moisturizes hair while blend of green tea extracts, sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E protect against free radicals. The wonderful aroma of citrus with the creamy masque tops off an otherwise routine activity. We give it 4 out of 5 in our rating index.
