Summer is a time period where even though you’re not on the clock, but your schedule is packed.
For those that need to go from the deck to dinner in a flash, we have the ultimate method for making the transition smoother from pool to dinner.
Before You Dive…
Before you get in the pool, soak your hair with fresh water and apply an oil-based, leave-in conditioning treatment to fight off the corrosive effects of chlorine. When it comes to your skin, remember to apply SPF before and after a swim.
Now, for the nail savvy, we recommend doing your nails well before you even hit the pool. Depending on how long of a dip you take, why risk your nails not drying before appetizers and drinks? Rock some serious nail lacquer, which is stronger and more resilient to chipping than traditional polish, and leave adequate time to dry before jumping into the pool or waves.
Plus, nothing looks more put together than perfectly done nails, right?
As a tip, don’t forget to dip your newly dried nails into some ice-cold water to speed up the drying process. Think “hands first” before you jet off to the nearest swimming hole!
After the Pool
When you re-dock, you need to rinse yourself off immediately with fresh water as soon as you get out of the pool or ocean. If a full-on shower is out of the question, rinse your hair and then apply a hair mask for maximum hydration in a short period of time.
(Psst, you can also slide in a leave in conditioner and comb your hair to remove tangles! Just remember, less is definitely more!)
Speaking of hydration, spritz your face with a balancing mist, like this little number from Jurlique, and let it settle to replace the natural oils stripped from your face.
