Summer Sun Protection Beauty

I just got back from the most magical trip to Turks and Caicos. My husband and I really don’t take trips just the two of us; we both come from such big families that during our dating and engaged years we would travel with them, and then since I got pregnant so fast after our wedding, we never got to take a Honeymoon. So, this trip was a ‘babymoon’ and ‘honeymoon’ all crammed into one. It was a four day, 3 night get-away to the Gansevoort Turks + Caicos, where we slept 10 hours a night, worked out {I even did Exhale Spa Core Fusion classes!}, tanned all day pool-side or on the beach, and ate meals of endless seafood.

Since we spent ALL DAY in the sun, I wanted to maintain a good balance of soaking up vitamin D while staying protected. Since my hair is blonde, I am EXTRA crazy about it getting too much sun because 1. it gets dried out and damaged and 2. it oxidizes, messing up my highlights! So I was sure to pack the best Sun Protection Products as well as Post-Sun Care Products.

Whether you are prepping for summer sunshine or have a vacation planned, this list will keep your hair and skin looking fab all summer long!

  1. Good products!! How did you eat so much sea food away fr
    Home while pregnant? I thougt it was a big no no but I also am going to that resort pregnant and I am dying to eat some sea food?

    1. Hi Nicole! Have the best trip!! Seafood is totally fine as long as it is cooked – I avoid anything raw (especially tar tars). My doctor also warned to stay away from shark, king mackerel, swordfish, and tilefish. I felt totally comfortable eating salmon, white fish, and shrimp!! If you are nervous, just alternate with a chicken or steak (good for iron!).
