Aveda Summer Essentials
Summer is finally here – the beloved season of vacations, festivals, pool days and beach weeks. Unfortunately, it is also the season of dehydrated skin and sunburns, so while it is easy to have fun in the sun it is important to use the right products to protect yourself from harmful rays. Luckily, we have the Aveda summer essentials list!
1. Daily Light Guard - $42
Aveda’s sunscreen product was re-released last year and we are so glad we have it back. This product is formulated for every day protection of the face, neck and décolleté and offers SPF 30. Walking to the mailbox, driving, running errands… there are endless activities besides laying out that expose your skin to damaging rays. Daily Light Guard is a sheer, light weight formula great for all skin types that you can wear alone or beneath your makeup. This non-chemical, 100% mineral-derived sunscreen also boasts plant-derived pollution defense, putting it solidly at the top of our summer essentials list!
Honorable Mention: Aveda Mineral Tinted Moisturizers are oil-free and offer SPF 15!
2. Intense Hydrating Masque - $24
Sometimes no matter how much sunscreen you slather on it is not enough. It starts out a little sensitive and the next thing you know your skin is lobster red and peeling. What if we told you there was a product to help? That is exactly why we love Aveda’s Intense Hydrating Masque. If it’s name is not description enough, this product hydrates and cools the skin with a sugar-derived humectant and rosewater. Use it as a masque and rinse, or use a thin layer as a moisturizer to fight that peeling!
3. Sun Care Protective Hair Veil - $28
So far it has been all about the skin, but protecting your hair is important too! The Protective Hair Veil is a unique product that acts like a sunscreen for your hair – regardless of whether your hair is colored or all natural. This is an essential before spending any time in the sun, and blondes who want to avoid fading warm or dull should take special note. Minimizing damage, dryness, and fading make this item stand out and place it on our list every year. All of this in one lightweight, water-resistant, UV defense mist!
Honorable Mention: Light Elements Smoothing Fluid does not protect from the sun but it does weightlessly fight flyaways in the summer humidity!
4. Beautifying Radiance Polish - $50
Summer means shorts, swimsuits, and sundresses. It is the time of year you show the most skin, so you want to be sure it looks it’s best! Gently smooth and moisturize shoulders, elbows, legs and knees with the rich salt crystals utilized by Beautifying Radiance Polish to slough away dry and dead skin. Our favorite uses for this product include using it in the shower to make legs ultra smooth and to scrub hands silky soft!
Honorable Mention: Beautifying Body Moisturizer is the perfect follow up!
5. Lip Saver - $8.50
Cinnamon leaf. Clove. Anise oil. What more could you ask for in a lip balm? Those refreshing ingredients are all combined with a seriously moisturizing formula that smooths your pout to perfection, no matter how much the sun and water try to dry you out.
Aveda has many incredible products but these are the summer essentials to keep you smooth, moisturized, and protected through the heat! Drop into Harmony Salon and try them all today.
