It’s June meaning summer has finally arrived!

With the summer holidays approaching, all we can think about is spending time in the sun, relaxing on the beach with a cold drink or taking a refreshing dip in the sea. We all deserve time to relax in the summer sun, but we must be careful as the sun can have damaging effects on us. Unfortunately, the summer heat can dry our skin and hair out.

So, what three basic things can you do to protect yourself?
  • If you want to sunbathe, make sure you wear SPF to protect yourself against UV damage.
    • Remember the higher the SPF number, the better
  • Wear a hat to protect your head from direct sun exposure
  • Drink a lot of fluids. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking a lot of water.
    • You can also drink our Pure Gold Collagen liquid beauty supplement which includes the highest quality hydrolysed collagen. It’s perfect for hot weather as you can keep it in the fridge as a refreshing drink.
 How can you protect your hair and scalp from the sun?
  • Get your hair shiny and healthy with a natural hair mask!
    • Mash a ripe avocado with one egg till it’s pretty much a lumpy mess and simply apply it to your hair. Leave it in for at least 20 minutes and then rinse several times to make sure there’s none left behind. You’ll fall in love with the natural shine.
  • Moisturise with a hair mask
    • Did you know honey is an emollient meaning, it is great at retaining moisture and prevents hair from falling out thanks to its rich antioxidant properties?
