Has your hair been damaged by the sun?

Summer is time for fun under the sun, but it can be damaging on your hair. If you didn’t take your luscious locks into consideration before you decided to hit the beach, you might already be experiencing sun damage. However, it’s never too late to reverse the effects of ultraviolet rays and keep them from occurring again in the future.

The first thing you should do once you notice sun damage is get out of direct sunlight! Then, Cosmopolitan magazine recommends deep-conditioning your hair to replenish the moisture it lost. To make it silky smooth, apply a leave-in conditioner – preferably one that contains SPF – to get it back to normal.

If you’re fearful of sun damage happening to your hair again, SheKnows encourages you to look at the shampoo and conditioner you’re buying for your hair. Many manufacturers will tell you on the label if they include beneficial SPF. Another option is to cover up your head before you go outside – there are plenty of cute sun hats to be bought and worn! Take these tips into account for maximum protection this summer.

Your wrinkles may make you seem angry and sad

Do you consider yourself to be an upbeat, optimistic person? Are you happy with where your life is right now? Your face might be telling people otherwise, according to NBC News. Specifically, the signs of aging may be leading individuals to think that you’re sad and angry, even when you’re not!

At the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science, a study was presented that looked at how people generally view others and judge them based on their facial appearances. Creases and furrows led many people to think that the faces they were looking at belonged to older, sad individuals, even though this wasn’t necessarily true. Now that you’ve heard the science behind the assumptions, you likely don’t want to be one of these misjudged people!

There are a couple of ways you can fight signs of aging on a daily basis. When you moisturize, try to use a lotion that contains SPF to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. The American Academy of Dermatology claims that wearing sunscreen every day can reduce the development of wrinkles. Woman’s Day magazine notes that staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water might also help you combat fine lines.

Key tips for staying safe under the sun in 2013

With summer just around the corner, you’re likely stocking up on Exuviance skincare products and other cosmetics to ensure that you look your best once it’s time to hit the beach. However, you might also want to brush up on your summer makeup and skincare maintenance routines before the seasons change. After all, there are always new advancements being made in sun protection and products that can help you stay safe from ultraviolet rays.

First, Allure magazine recommends stocking up on sunscreen and applying it liberally each day, especially if you have a beach trip planned for the near future. This can help your skin build up a layer of protection against the sun when it comes time to lay on the sand and curl up with a romance novel.

Next, Discovery Health encourages you to know what you’re buying before just purchasing any suntan lotion at the store. Ideally, your moisturizer should protect against both UVA and UVB rays in addition to being SPF 15 or higher.

Finally, think about investing in makeup for the new season that includes sun protection. Many lines now incorporate ingredients that can keep skin safe from the harmful rays of the sun.

3 spring sun care tips for every woman

Now that spring is in full swing, more people are trying to soak up the sun, and you might be one of them! However, it’s no secret that too much sun can do damage to your skin. That being said, here are some tips you can incorporate into your skincare routine this spring to protect yourself against ultraviolet rays. Adopting these habits now can make it easier to maintain your skin health when the sun is stronger in the summer.

1. Go with SPF 15 or higher
SPF indicates how much protection you receive from the product you’re using. The Huffington Post claims that you should always look for makeup or moisturizers with at least SPF 15.

2. Practice healthy skincare
Ultraviolet rays are thought to cause wrinkles and premature aging. In addition to using SPF lotion, you can reduce the risk of aging signs by using gentle soap, limiting time spent in hot water and moisturizing frequently.

3. Protect yourself
Using SPF moisturizer and makeup can keep ultraviolet rays from negatively impacting exposed areas of your skin. However, the Mayo Clinic claims that it’s still a good idea to wear protective clothing for additional safety.

Are you up to speed on your SPF facts?

How many times have you come across facial makeup and moisturizers that contain SPF and asked yourself what this means? If you aren't sure how ultraviolet rays and the sun affect your skin, you may want to do your homework as you continue to purchase SPF cosmetics!

SPF stands for sun protection factor, and even though you might commonly associate it with tanning lotion, it's being seen on more makeup labels. This is because cosmetics experts are realizing the importance of containing SPF in their products to prevent signs of aging in users.

The Skin Cancer Foundation claims that SPF 15 or higher tends to be the most efficient at protecting against the effects of ultraviolet rays, some of which may eventually cause cancer. Everyone age 6 months and older is advised to use some form of sunscreen on exposed areas of their skin on a daily basis.

As you look for new foundations, concealers and lipsticks, consider finding items that specifically say they include SPF. This can give you peace of mind every time you put on your makeup. Furthermore, you may just be able to avoid a few more wrinkles by taking this precautionary measure.

Do you know how to hide a sunburn with your makeup?

You might have had a great time on your vacation to the tropics, but spending too much time under the sun may have left you with an icky sunburn. No one wants to be seen with a red tinge on her face, and with the right makeup, you don't have to walk around with your souvenir from the sun.

First, use your bronzer to your advantage. Become Gorgeous claims that bronzer can be your best friend in a fight against a sunburn – the tint of the makeup can efficiently hide redness. Just be sure to evenly distribute it  over your face – not just on the burn – to create a flawless appearance.

Next, Daily Makeover encourages the use of a yellow-tinted powder to further hide any signs of redness from the sun. A loose powder can also be more comfortable on your skin as it recovers, unlike a cream formula.

Finally, make sure you take the proper preventative measures to keep your skin from suffering the wrath of the sun in the future. Many cosmetics now include SPF to help you maintain the health of your skin by protecting against ultraviolet rays.

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Getting your guy to wear sunblock shouldn't be a chore!Women who peruse beauty magazines and blogs are always reading about ways to keep safe from the sun’s damaging UV rays, but guys who don’t have such literary tastes don’t get the same helpful info. As a result, they’re way more likely to get bad sunburns and, eventually, skin damage like wrinkles, age spots and even cancer. So what can you do to protect your guy?

Instead of getting all preachy on him, why not just make sure that he has a great sunblock like Dermalogica – Daily Defense Block SPF15 on hand? If you give him a couple to put in his car and bathroom, he’ll always be able to slather on the SPF.

If your dude never remembers to apply it, you could always ambush him poolside. After you’re done smoothing a lotion like Dermalogica – MultiVitamin BodyBlock SPF 20 all over your body, tell him you’d be more than happy to do him the favor. He probably won’t object to having your hands all over him. As long as you’re not nagging him about the sunscreen, he’ll likely appreciate the fact that you care about his skin’s health.
