Why you need sunscreen for this oft-neglected spot
Those UV rays are sneaky… We pay a lot of attention to exposed skin when slathering on the SPF, but what about the skin that’s covered up? That includes areas that may be protected by clothing—but for the record, a white tee only offers the equivalent of SPF 5, which isn’t going to do a heck of a lot when you’re at the beach or by the pool. (This is why you should apply sunscreen EVERYWHERE before you get dressed if you’re planning a long day of fun in the sun.)
I’m also going to remind you that there’s skin under your hair—and the scalp is particularly vulnerable to skin cancer. In fact, many irregular lesions are discovered by hair stylists and colorists. If you tend to part your hair in the same place every day, it’s likely that small patch of skin is getting unprotected UV exposure on a regular basis—and that’s where Coola’s new Organic Scalp & Hair Mist SPF 30 comes in.
With a precision pump applicator that helps you apply this protective mist directly to your scalp (it’s recommended that you also comb or brush it through the lengths of your hair), it’s a must for anyone spending an extended period of time in the sun. Beyond shielding your sensitive scalp skin, it also shields your strands from damage caused by the sun and helps prevent color fading. Packed with antioxidants, monoi oil and gotu kola extract, it’s also 70% organic and a must for your beach bag this summer.
