    • June 1, 2023

    With summer just around the corner, it’s time to soak up the sun responsibly. In this blog, we dive into the exciting world of sunscreen and why it’s crucial for your summer adventures. Get ready to unleash your summer glow and enjoy the sunny season to the fullest!

    Shield Your Skin, Embrace the Sun
    We all love a sun-kissed glow, but let’s not forget the importance of sun protection. Sunscreen is your trusty sidekick that shields your skin from harmful UV rays. It keeps sunburns at bay, prevents premature aging, and helps reduce the risk of skin cancer. So lather up and let your skin bask in the sun’s glory without any worries.

    Prevents Premature Aging
    Did you know that sunscreen can help maintain youthful-looking skin? By incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine, you can fight off those pesky signs of aging caused by the sun. Bid farewell to fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, and say hello to a summer of radiance and vitality.

    Your Skin’s BFF
    SPF is your skin’s best friend during the summer months. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to ensure maximum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Remember to generously apply and reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating, to keep your skin happy and healthy.

    Hair Extensions & SPF
    Certain sunscreens that contain ingredients like avobenzone, octinoxate, or oxybenzone may potentially cause discoloration or turn hair extensions orange. Here are some tips to avoid SPF damage to your hair extensions: 

    Opt for Physical Sunscreens
    Physical sunscreens containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are less likely to cause discoloration. These ingredients work by sitting on top of the skin and reflecting or scattering UV rays, rather than being absorbed into the skin or hair.

    Test Before Application
    Before applying sunscreen to your scalp or hair, perform a patch test on a small area of your extensions. This will help you determine if the sunscreen may cause any unwanted color changes.

    Rinse Thoroughly
    After spending time in the sun and applying sunscreen, make sure to rinse your hair thoroughly to remove any residue. This will help minimize the chances of any potential color transfer.
