Summertime can be one of the most relaxing periods of the year.

Sun exposure is known to be #1 reason for skin cancer, so no matter what time of the day is and where you’re heading, it is crucial that your skin is covered in sunscreen.

Cool down with Aloe Vera gel
After a relaxing spent at the beach or in the park, your skin will probably feel overheated and dry. Although wearing sunscreen can prevent serious damage from UV rays, the free radicals that cause your skin to crack can still be active after sun exposure, leading to sunburns and itchiness.
So once you got back inside and hopped out from the shower, apply our cooling Aloe Vera gel to replenish your skin and prevent the appearance of sunburns. It will feel like an instant cool down, leaving your skin super soft and deeply hydrated.
As your face is sweating a lot more now than during the rest of the year, the chances that your pores get clogged are considerably higher. Without thoroughly cleaning your face, will skin will break out and it will be full of unwanted blemishes.
One solution for this is to use a rosewater toner at least twice a day. Rosewater works as a healer for the redness of irritated skin, while also cleaning the skin and leaving it glowy.
The skin also feels oilier during summer, so you can use rosewater whenever you want to hydrate your skin without applying a heavy & thick cream, as it has moisturizing properties.
As mentioned above, the sun can be a powerful accelerator for aging effects. Thus, it’s important that during this warm period your skin is nourished with ingredients that refine its structure.

This miracle serum will help your skin to refine its structure, helping to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and scars.

Argan oil for hair
Sun UV rays are not only damaging to the skin, but also to the hair. You probably notice that during summer, your hair starts to lighten. That is because the UV rays destroy the natural pigment in your hair, called melanin.
But the problem is that while the sun is making your hair blonder, it's also destroying your hair cuticles that keep your hair soft. Once your hair cuticles are open, the hair will start to look frizzy and dry.
One simple way to keep your hair away from getting sun-damaged is to apply a drop or two of argan oil on it every time you go out in the sun. Pour some argan oil into your palms, rub them for two seconds, and then spread the oil on your hands all over your hair. This way your hair will be constantly nourished with hydrating nutrients that will keep it away from drying out.
For extra protection, try to have your hair covered with a scarf or a hat as often as you can. This will considerably reduce the negative effects that sun rays have on your har.
