About this Episode

The summertime is brutal on skin and hair. Between lounging under the sun and heading to the pool every day, we’re lucky to still have skin and hair at all!

On this educational segment of Just Ask David, health expert Lisa Davis and beauty guru David Pollock dish out a few tips on how to protect and maintain your skin and hair even if you hit the beach every single day until the summer ends.

Beat the Heat!
Sunscreen, a hat with a visor, and sunglasses are your best friends during the sunny summer months - for children especially.

And FYI, don’t be fooled into thinking that you don’t need sunscreen because you’re not outside very much.

That summer sun can do noticeable damage even through your windows, so make sure to keep a bottle of sunscreen handy at all times.

Don’t Be the Fool of Your Neighborhood Pool
If the pool is your designated hangout spot during the summer, you know how rough the chemicals in the pools can be on your skin and hair.

Good news: chlorine-green hair and wrinkly skin don’t have to be part of your daily pool attire anymore!

But seriously, anyone who’s swam their way through a few pools knows that those harsh chemicals do more than make you smell funny.

The chlorine strips the moisture from your skin and hair, leaving hair brittle and skin drier than chalk.

But not to worry: David and Lisa have tips on how to protect your skin and hair even while you’re in the pool!
