BEACH GODDESS BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

on April 26, 2018

Ah, the heat of the warm sun!
It’s incredible what a little Vitamin D can do to the soul after a long winter cozy snuggle indoors.
Vitamin D is like that magic vitamin that makes your hair, skin, glow, smell, and aura different. Most would justify this different as better when your skin has a little melanin bronze and hairless glaze. Of course a little excess of anything can never be a good thing; So along with the excess UV rays and Vitamin D soaking, it’s better to prep than regret. Being overly cautious when it comes to sun exposure is the hottest 2018 trend to FINALLY hit American soil as it has been so popular in the Eastern cultures for centuries now.

But oh, America, we love to indulge in just about everything and the race to achieving the perfect summer glow is an Ultimate American Dream for us. However, take it from the bronze goddess, beach blooded Brazilians to not only perfect the cut to a cheeky bikini bottom; but know the top quality essentials to preparing for safe and dewy bronzing season.

Therefore, we created a cohesive list alongside the Brazilian designer herself, Florença Kapitzky on the top quality “all in one” ULTIMATE VITAMIN D PACK of our favorite before and after sun beauty products that Brazilians swear by –

Summer Essential List to perfecting a safe and dewy bronzing season:

Hair is our pride and joy, but why do we forget to protect our golden strands from over exposure in the heat of the rays? Hair seems to be the most under-rated sun spot of the body yet its first to be exposed to the sun.

DID YOU KNOW?

SUN EXPOSURE DEHYDRATES AND DEGRADES THE PROTEINS AND PIGMENTS IN YOUR HAIR FOLLICLES LEADING TO PROTEIN LOSS AKA WEAK, DRY, AND DULL LOCKS (BLEH)

Not to mention scalp protectant is very important as well in the sun preparation game.
Brazilian Designer, Florença Kapitzky swears by the Redken Sunk Milk Protective Moisturizer for maintaining the protein and luster of her mane in the heat of the extended beach days.

With its SPF protection and silky sleek long lasting shine, we SWEAR this product makes your hair eat up the moisture while protecting the strands of your hair.

BEFORE GOING INTO THE SUN, APPLY THIS TO YOUR SCALP AND HAIR RUNNING YOUR FINGERS EVENLY THOUGH HAIR FROM SCALP TO ENDS.

The skin you’re in deserves the necessary attention it needs in order to replenish and enhance a youthful glow. Vitamins in the sun can be great for blood circulation, a pop of color, and a bit of a radiance. But too much sun exposure on your face can accelerate aging and dehydration.
Instead – covering the face as much as possible with the least sun exposure is ideal for prolonging aging, and skin conditions. Of course, that’s like telling youth the #1 way to not get pregnant is abstinence. (Duh).
It’s going to be inevitable, so if your face is going to be exposed to the sun, the products on your face better have the appropriate nutrient rich overage with high SPF levels. With the lack of sunlight on the skin, a tinted moisturizer like Roc Sun Protection Anti-Shine with nourishing vitamins AND anti-aging elements. Tinted moisturizers, especially Roc Minesol Anti-Shine SPF Moisturizer as it acts as a cover up, a skin protectant, and youth enhancement all in one!

Before basking in the summer rays with a new bikini, and Aperol spritz in hand, the body deserves a little love on the SPF. Bronzing is always important to the S U M M E R G L O W but that sun burn on the other hand..

Protect yourself from the dangers of skin peeling, and skin damage and STILL achieve a dewy, brown, tan without too much oily residue.
The Australian Gold 30 is the perfect SPF to tanning oil ratio for the long lasting heat.

LET’S TALK LIPS

Sun damage on the lips – IS A THING and cracky, dry, chaffing lips are not a cute look while ordering sparkling drinks from the poolside cabana boys.
Highly recommended is the Gosling Chop Saver – THE HEALER. Medically designed by a trumpet musician as lip treatment for brass and woodwind musicians, the elements of this specific lip balm are now used by dermatologists as a go to lip treatment and moisturizing balm. The SPF 15 protection keeps from burning while lasting power of deep conditioning and pleasant orange scent pairs well with a a citrus summer spritz. LOVE!

Is just as important as pre-sun care. Yes, protection from any UV rays is quite literally lifesaving. After sun care is important for maintaining that dewy glow, and preventing cracking or peeling skin.

Having a solid sun routine especially during the sunnier months is important for maintaining a healthy, hydrated and radiant glow.

After sun hair care is best for keeping the strands hydrated, and to re-boost the proteins that may have been stripped from the sunlight. The Kérastase Ressistance Therapiste Shampoo, Masque, and Serum Trio is a scientifically designed three-step treatment process that revives the protein-stripped and dull hair follicles post sun. (YASSSS)
An all in one that really just revives the post-sun damaged hair while strengthening it to ward off further damage!

PRO TIP FROM THE DESIGNER Florença Kapitzky:

Try rotating your products every other month to maintain the balance in your hair proteins.
THE OIL by Lalicious is an amazing ALL IN ONE Coconut Oil and Marula Oil blend for a long lasting nourishment, FROM HEAD TO TOE.
Lathering on The Oil after a long day in the sun seeps deep into the pours for an invigorating experience full of anti-oxidant benefits and deep hydration. Not to mention
the smell makes you feel like you are on a long tropical vaycay. Enriching your skin after the sun is the most important way to seal your tan and replenish your skin.
