22 Best After-Summer Skin & Hair Repair Products
Has your summer of fun in the sun wreaked havoc on your skin and hair? Here are some of the best fixes.
As if the end of a golden summer isn’t depressing enough, the side effects of too much sun, chlorine, salt water, air conditioning and humidity can also put a damper on things. Unfortunately, no matter how much cream you’ve slathered on or how big your hat was, your hair and skin have inevitably been exposed to certain amounts of damage.
Whether you were busy living it up at the coolest pool parties, taking a well-deserved break by the sea or spending quality time with your kids at the water park, summer’s lifestyle strips your skin of its protective lipids, allowing its natural moisture to vanish faster. Long-term consequences from summer activities include hyperpigmentation, sun spots, wrinkles and fine lines, loss of elasticity and dry and rough skin. (As if that’s not enough, dehydrated skin shows up the fine lines even more.)
Plus, by the end of the summer, your tresses can become so dehydrated, your hair practically feels as if it is nearly fried. That’s due to the protective coating on the hair, the hydrolipidic film, getting destroyed by the sun, salt water and chlorine, which can cause the moisture located deep in the core of the hair shaft to quickly evaporate. And when moisture has been sucked out of your mane, you’re left with a slew of problems like tangles, breakage, dulling colour and hair crying out to be hydrated.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom thanks to some of the best rescue products. Whether you’re looking for hair masques and repairers or ultra hydrating serums and mositurisers for your skin, click through to see the products that can help reverse the damage and enable you to look your best for the new season.
