Sun’s Out, SPF’s Out! Hot Weather Beauty & Body Care Tips

Posted by: Arin Pedersen

One of the best times of the year is here—school’s out, the pools are open, and happy hour is on the patio! Before you head to the cabin or the beach, make sure you have what you need in your bag to be ready for that summer sun. See below for what we recommend, and stop in to Cole’s Salon before your next summer outing to help with all your summer beauty care needs!

For Max Skin Protection
When protecting your face this summer, we recommend our Image Skincare line. Image offers a variety of options in coverage ranging from 30 to 50 SPF with both UVA and UVB sun protection. Not a fan of lotion? Image also offers a great SPF in a sheer spray as well. Complete your facial coverage by adding Lip Drink by Jane Iredale to your daily routine. Lip Drink provides great moisture and has an SPF coverage of 15…perfect for those sun goddesses that enjoy basking in the sun’s rays.

For Clean Skin Protection
We’ve all been reading about what those “over-the-counter” sunscreens have in their ingredient lists and what potential harmful effects they could have on you and your family. What if you could be using an SPF that has four active ingredients we can all pronounce and have heard of? The Tropical Vanilla Body SPF 32 Sunscreen by Eminence contains shea butter, aloe, vanilla, and linden flower (seriously…that’s it!) that work together to revitalize, calm, hydrate, soothe, and offer antioxidants and moisture to the skin while protecting against the sun.

For Protecting Hair Color
So you just got your hair colored, and love the beautiful tones you’re repping? Keep them from fading on your next summer outing by stocking up on the “Beautiful Color” line by Oribe. Between the shampoos, conditioners, masques, and specialty items, we are confident your new color will stay true-toned and beautiful! The Beautiful Color line offers seven layers of UV protection and contains bioflavonoids (think of what keeps strawberries looking so red) for extra color vibrancy. Not needing much color protection but still looking to keep your hair safe from the sun? Try the Protective Sun Veil by Aveda. This light-weight, water resistant mist creates an invisible shield that protects up to 16 hours. The UVA/UVB filters are derived from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils to help protect hair from sun damage.
