3 Products To Protect Yourself From The Sun This Spring

Spring is here and warm, sunny days are just around the corner. While we all can’t wait to get out and soak up the sun’s warm rays, don’t forget to protect yourself, too. Here are three products you need to protect yourself from the sun this spring. 

1. Sunscreen

Of course sunscreen is our top skin protecting product for spring! It’s always important to protect your skin from UV rays when out in the sun. The best way to do that is to find a sunscreen and apply it throughout the day. When wearing sunscreen it is best to apply before going out into the sun and to reapply every two or three hours for maximum protection. There are also a variety of sunscreens you can purchase that fit your needs. If you wear makeup throughout the day, try a thin sunscreen that is invisible underneath your daily make up. Or if you need extra protection, get a sunscreen with a higher SPF to make sure your skin is protected. But whether you wear thin or heavy sunscreen, make sure that you are always applying before you leave the house to protect your skin from sun damage. The product shown above is available at CVS for $6.79!

2. SPF Lip Balm

Just like sunscreen, lip balm is important during spring break to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. Being out in all the sun all day can really damage the skin on your lips by making it dry and cracked. To solve that issue, find a lip balm with SPF to keep your lips moisturized and protected from sun damage while outside. Make sure to apply throughout the day for the ultimate healthy lips. The product shown above is available at CVS for $2.99!

3. Hair Mist

You would be surprised how easily your hair can be damaged from UV rays. To keep your hair protected make sure you invest in a good UV ray protecting hair mist. Now these may be a bit pricey but the outcome is totally worth it. This product from fekkai.com protects your hair from sun damage and color fading from being outside. The Soleil Hair Mist may be extremely useful to those who color their hair often since it’s easy for the sun to damage. Also, the hair mist adds a beautiful shine, smooths and controls frizz from the varying spring break weather. You can get this product at fekkai.com for $8.00 for a 1.07 oz bottle or a $20.00 5 oz bottle!
