I can't believe that August is here and well under way, in fact. Just because the end of the warm summer months are near, we still have a good two months of fun in the sun to be had — at least here in the Northeast.
I have been spending a lot of time outside this summer and I am so careful to protect myself from the sun and all the elements. Not only do I protect my skin, I protect my hair (it’s obviously color-treated if you caught my last two posts) and my lips.
I have been switching up the sun protection products I use on my face, but have recently discovered this and it’s pretty much a game-changer. More on that soon. Because I have been using (and loving) so much from Moroccanoil, I thought I’d share the three must-have products that I have been using to protect me from the sun.
Starting from the top, I protect my hair color with Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray. I apply the Protect & Prevent Spray on my freshly washed and towel-dried hair by misting it all over my hair. It works by “shielding” hair color from UV damage and other environmental factors with its blend of antioxidants. It is SO much more than sunscreen for the hair. You see, hair is not only protected, but it is left stronger with the innovative formula that uses the brands exclusive ArganID™ technology. This technology infuses argan oil into the hair’s cortex which helps to seal and repair the hair.
As I have been spending so much time outside, I am extra careful to protect my lips with an additional sun protection product. I LOVE the Moroccanoil Lip Balm SPF 20. This lightweight antioxidant-rich argan oil and shea butter formula glides onto lips to leave them smooth and hydrated with a light sheen. It does this while offering broad-spectrum protection from UVA/UVB rays and a pleasant flavor/scent that is like a mint tea.
For my body, I have been obsessed with Moroccanoil Sun Lotion SPF 30 everyday. It is so lightweight and not greasy so that I don’t mind wearing it whether I am at the beach, pool or just running errands. I like that the lotion is good for my skin, too, as it is an antioxidant-rich argan oil and Vitamin E formula that hydrates and nourishes the skin. It is very lightly scented with a summer Monoi scent, rubs into skin very easily and offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
