Time to Hit The Beach!
Hey Rockets Fans!
As the Rockets regular season is winding down, the weather in Houston is heating up! The pools and beaches are starting to get a little more crowded, and everyone is enjoying the sunshiny outdoors. As RPD, we not only use products to enhance our look on game day and at appearances, but we also use products to protect our hair and skin, and keep it healthy when we are enjoying our days off. Whether lounging out by the pool, soaking up the sun at the beach, or dining al fresco with my girls, I try to always protect my hair and skin from the Houston sun and humidity.
Wearing sun protection is essential when enjoying the beautiful weather. I like to use Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer on my face right after I wash it. It contains SPF and UVA/UVB sunscreen so that my face is protected and stays moisturized. If I am going to be outside for an extended period of time I use Olay Complete SPF 30 Defense Daily UV Moisturizer, and make sure to bring a hat and sunglasses to wear.
Not only does skin need to be protected from the sun so it stays healthy, but hair does too! There are many different hair care products that help prevent color fade and protect against UV rays. I have found that using a combination of Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo, Conditioner, Color Protecting Glaze, and 3-Minute Mask does just this, along with replenishing moisture and adding vibrant shine. My hair stays healthy and manageable when I use these products, and styling is a breeze. If I am going to the pool or beach I usually forego styling my hair and just put it in a braid.
When my outdoor activities are a bit more formal it can be pretty tricky to get my hair to stay in place, especially with Houston's usually unpredictable forecast. High humidity is a major enemy of my mane, so I like to use anti-humidity mousse and hairspray. My favorites are Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Style Triple Action Volume Maximum Hold Mousse and Pantene Pro-V Anti-Humidity Hairspray. Together these products give my hair volume, control frizz, and keep my hairstyle in place all day.
Those are just a few of my RPD Beauty tips to help you maintain healthy hair and skin while spending time outdoors. The weather is beautiful today and I need to get off this computer and get outside to enjoy it. I'll see you at the next game! Go Rockets!!!!
