Hair and skin can really take a beating in the summer with all the sun, heat and humidity. But don’t despair over frizzy hair and sun-damaged skin. Local experts have some great tips to help you weather the weather.
“During the summer, we are exposed to the sun, so freckles, age spots and other darkened skin patches can become more pronounced,” said Rozlin Tamras, lead esthetician at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa in Deerfield. She recommends a new summer skincare spa treatment, Advanced Brightening Facial, which has excellent skin brighteners along with the hydrating properties of vitamin C. She also recommends a Vitamin C serum.
And don’t forget to take care of your lips. Cheryl Santucci from Mario Tricoci Salons & Day Spas said, “Plump, youthful lips are a hot focus in beauty for women of all ages. Having an arsenal of lip products with similar ingredients and benefits is key!” She recommends COSE™ by Mario Tricoci.”
Regarding makeup, go natural this summer. Try to wear less, but always use a moisturizer with sunscreen.
“Headed to the pool or beach this summer? Be sure to protect your locks and plan ahead and use a leave-in conditioner.” exclaimed Alan Kossof, co-owner of the Teddie Kossof Salon in Northfield. “If you need to protect your keratin treated hair after the fun in the sun is over, replenish lost keratin by adding Keratin Complex Rx after you shampoo and condition your hair.” He also suggested Mane Intentions Hair Products. They neutralize unruly odor and leave a light scent in your hair.
Some great summer hair styles for the summer can be done with any length hair. If you have the pixie haircut, try the deep side part swept over by smoothing your hair to one side. That can be done with the bob style haircut, too, minus the smoothing over part. For longer hair, try a swoop over-the-shoulder look. That hair style along with the glam curls look is always in fashion. Other hair trends include braids, high ponytails, loose updo’s and sleek back low buns.
