How to Treat Sun Damaged Hair, Nails, and Skin

After a long summer being constantly in the sun, our hair, nails, and skin suffer tremendously due to extreme exposure to UV rays. Although it is recommended to take precautions towards preventing harm to your hair, nails and skin, many times we neglect to act until the damage has already been done. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take towards improving and relieving post-damaged hair, nails, and skin.

The summer heat tends to affect our hair more than expected. By the end of the summer season, with all the days staying out in the heat, our hair becomes very dirty from sweat, and dried out and brittle from the sun. To counter these changes, it is recommended that you keep your hair clean and moisturized. Try using the Tresemme Fresh Start product line, which contains various dry shampooing products that are great for those who do not wish wash their hair daily, but do want a clean start after a day of sweating. Another product line that is useful toward moisturizing your hair is the Paul Mitchell Moisture line, complete with shampoos, conditioners, and daily moisturizing products. Both product lines are great for all hair types and will surely help you achieve beautiful hair all year long.

Sun damage is also a threat to an often neglected part our bodies, our nails. Sun damage can cause vertical ridges in your nails, which become more apparent as you age. You can treat these ridges by applying a nail polish basecoat with ridge filler. A great product for this is the Ridge Filler and Base Coat by Essie, which can be found at most beauty supply stores. Once ridges have formed it takes four to six months for your fingernails to grow from cuticle to tip, while your toenails may take a year to a year and a half to grow out. Using a nail polish with ridge filler will help bide time until your nails have grown out.

Many of our main concerns regarding sun damage are towards our skin. Our skin is the part of our body that is most noticeable when affected by sun damage. To help heal your skin after it has become dried out and burnt by the sun; use the Clear Essence ‘My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Lotion’ and the Clear Essence ‘Specialist Oil’. Both products will give your skin the added moisture it needs after a long summer of damage. Both products are on sale now!!! Find these products and more skincare tips at
