If there's ever a time for shiny, vibrant, luscious hair, it's summer. But like most people your locks may actually take a hit over the next few months. Sun and water can be damaging, leading to faded color, split ends and a brittle, dry texture. Below find more tips on how to protect your hair.

Protecting Your Hair in the Summer
Tips for Summertime Hair Care
1) Get a haircut. It's always best to get a trim before summer. The sun will do extra damage to hair that's already dry, so if you remove those dead ends, you'll be in better shape.
2) Start in the shower. If you've been out in the sun and forgot to protect your hair, you can still give it the nourishment it needs. Opt for a hydrating shampoo and conditioner.
3) Use UV-shielding products. These can help prevent highlighted hair from lightening too quickly and looking fried, and they can keep dark hair from turning brassy or red.
4) Dampen your locks. Spray some water on your hair before you go into the pool or ocean. It adds an extra layer of coating, so when you go swimming, your hair isn't as likely to absorb 100 percent of the chlorinated or salt water.
5) Choose strong hair bands. Summer heat practically demands we throw our hair back, and a ponytail with no part can even protect the scalp from exposure to the sun. Pulling it too tight can cause hair to break - or just "snap the hair off". Pulling your hair back when it's wet is even more damaging. Aim for loose buns and ponytails. Alternate - tie it low one day, high another and to the side the next. That way, you're not always stressing the same strands.
6) Wear a hat - or something cuter. It's one of the best ways to protect your hair from the sun's rays.

Exfoliate for Cleaner, Smooth Skin
Exfoliation should be an integral part of your skin care routine. There are great exfoliating cleanser with glycolic acid that most people can tolerate using two to three times per week. Using a cleansing brush like Clarasonic brush along with you daily cleanser will take it to the next level. Those with sensitive skin need to be careful with exfoliating as it may cause irritation.
What it does: Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.
When: Perform in the mornings prior to toner, moisturizer, SPF and make-up application. Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!
Don't forget: After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating body cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF (as recommended by the FDA).
