Solution: Protect The Places You Forget While Basking In The Sun

If you’re like me, it’s easy to remember to put sunscreen on your face, under the straps of your swimsuit, and on the tops of your hands. But what I don’t remember to do is protect my lips, my new manicure, or my salon-done highlights… and as any stylist can tell you, the sun’s rays can turn nail polishes opaque and discolor highlights in just one afternoon.

 

So to ensure you’re looking good when you come in from being by the pool all day… use these protecting products:

 

 

Philip Kingsley Swimcap ($42): A special UV filter helps to extend the life of color treated hair and guards against discoloration and dryness from sun, chlorine, salt, water, and wind while conditioning your hair. Simply apply to dampened hair and work through evenly before going outside.

Essie Non-Yellowing Top Coat ($8): Think of it as sunscreen for your mani. UV absorbers keep clear coats from yellowing in the sun and keeps your nail polish looking salon-glossy.

UVA & UVB Blocking Lip Balms: I have two new favorites… and here are both. Beyond Coastal’s SPF 15 all-natural lip balm ($5) goes on smooth and moisturizes while protecting my lips. Beauty Cosmedics Protective balm ($12) blocks out harmful rays and provides a natural, pinkish tint that is perfect for post-pool drinks.
