Beauty and the Heat

Village Connection July 2013

Getting dressed in the summer can be a breeze.  All you need is a cute sundress and sandals and you’re done.  However, getting the perfect hair and make-up can be more challenging. 

July heats up with beach bashes and BBQ’s and is also the time of year when the weather starts to get hot and wreak havoc on your skin and hair.  Trying to prevent your make-up from melting is an ongoing battle, not to mention the constant struggle to look fresh.  It is essential that you go the extra mile to take care of your skin and hair to protect them against the summer sizzle.

There are a few things that you can do to keep your summer makeup looking light and your summer hair looking effortless all day long.  Before you get ready for that 4th of July BBQ, here are some of my go-to summer beauty secrets:

Quench Your Beauty
Dehydration is a problem for skin and hair in the summer heat.  So, moisturize both properly.  Try to remember to use a replenishing body moisturizer daily to restore suppleness with a blend of vitamins, natural humectants and oils. If your skin is sensitive, and especially for your face, a moisturizer specifically formulated for sensitive skin, perhaps something that’s fragrance-free will do the trick.

For soft, supple, touchable hair, try Aveda’s dry remedy moisturizing hair care system.  This moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask drenches even the driest, most brittle hair.  The parent-pending Deep-Moisture complex penetrates hair to deliver lasting, intense moisture. 

Double Duty SPF
We know how important it is to apply sunscreen before you leave the house – always – however, most of us forget about our lips. Bleeding lipstick is the worst, and in the summer heat you can almost guarantee that you'll resemble The Joker within a few hours of stepping into the sun. Spice up your sunscreen routine with a tinted lip balm with SPF, it'll protect your lips and stay put. A perfect solution for the lazy days of summer!

Defeat Humidity
Nothing says “hazy, hot and humid,” like frizzy hair. My cure: Aveda’s new Smooth Infusion hair kit.  This daily cleansing system smooths and softens hair up to 60 percent.  Its exclusive plant infusion blend creates a smooth new surface on hair that reduces frizz and unwanted waves as well as help prevent flyaway.
