I don’t know about you but I am so ready for summer this year. I love the longer days and warm nights; I love spending time on the water with friends and family; I love grilling for dinner and just being outside more than usual.

Of course, spending more time outside means taking extra care of our skin and hair — even more than usual. As I get older, I am more and more aware of the importance of applying and reapplying sunscreen throughout the day and making sure to protect my hair from sun damage.
