How to Rehydrate After Sun Exposure – The Aveda Way

Watch out in the hot sun!

Summer may be a gorgeous time of year, but the sun can be so damaging! If you’ve ever spent too long under the hot sun (and let’s face it, most of us have) you’ll know that not only can sunburn really hurt, but it’s really drying for the skin and hair. In fact, according to skin care specialists, the sun is the single worst cause of damage, as well as being the biggest contributor for premature ageing. The sun can also be really harsh in drying out the hair, increasing split ends, frizz and breakage. So if you’ve been overindulging in sun basking lately, here are our top naturally derived Aveda products to help repair the effects of sun exposure…
