Products For Swimming

We are in the middle of summer now, well almost! the heat is on a rise and water inviting. However, we must remember the ways that heat can hurt us. Our skin & hair needs to be protected before we head out straight away for all that fun. A pre-shampoo protectant protects and a clarifying shampoo followed by a conditioner cleanse & cares. Similarly for the skin, a good sunscreen is important. I, in fact, apply a bit of my sunscreen to my hair if I am heading to the pool.  I also make sure I carry a big bottle of water with ice and plenty of lime to keep me hydrated & fresh in between swims.

Apart from that here are a few products for a complete pre/ during/ after care.

A pre-shampoo hair protectant. It makes your hair soft and shiny while protects it from sun & water. Apply before your swim and then wash off. Available here.

After the swim, you need a shampoo that cleans out chlorine off your hair without damaging it. A clarifying shampoo is just the thing. Available here.

Water and the sun usually make my hair lose control as well as moisture. The Oribe moisture & control is just what I need then. Available here.

I got the No.4 Prep & Protect as a sample and I have been in love with it since. It makes my hair so gorgeous and manageable that its un-be-liev-able! Available here.

I remember once when I entered the sea with my sunscreen on, it completely abandoned me the after forming a milk-like texture. It was so bad that my goggles were full of water because there was no vacuum and I promised myself to find a better sunscreen lotion for the swim. And I found this. This doesn't melt away, stays close to the skin and does what its supposed to.

This is a new sunscreen in my kitty. But I am decently impressed. It absorbs quickly, has a beautiful lemon smell and Is easy to apply. You can reach where your hands can't and smooth over easily. It's a good sunscreen to step out in as well. Available here.

This scrub smells great. It's the combined fragrance of coconut & rose. I love the way it leaves my skin soft and supple. It's a great idea to slough off the burnt, dry skin from time-to-time. Available here.

It's the best oil by far. I prefer oil over lotions in summer as it doesn't melt away in the heat and absorbs much better. L'Occitane Almond oil makes my skin beautiful & soft. Available here

And now comes the heat burn. It hurts crazy and skin may peel as some parts of our body gets too much sun and burns up a little. If you don't have access to an aloe vera plant, as aloe vera is the best thing, in this case, try this.
