Under The Italian Sun

Throughout the summer months, I am always eager to show some skin and get my tan on. This summer I decided that I want to prevent my skin from dryness and sunburn, as I always do, as well as gain an effortlessly bronzed glow that lasts. However, when I looked under my sink, where my mountain of bottled hair and body products reside, I realized that my collection of sun protection products consisted only of the basic SPF sunscreens that you can buy at any local drug store. Here I have listed various sun protection products that are great for hydrating your skin in the heat of this season- as well as your hair!
