I love a good routine and my summer one is no exception! It’s a time for relaxation and fun - but not a time to slack on your skincare regimen! The following tips will keep you glowing and fresh all summer long…
Summertime is the season to be sure you exfoliate! With the summer heat, we’re more prone to sweating, oil build up, and acne. After exfoliating, use a good serum like our Daily Repair which will help to protect and even skin tone. Tip: By using your hydrating and applying our Daily Repair Serum or Blemish Repair Serum while your skin is still damp will enhance the penetration of the nutrients into your skin. Remember to not exfoliate sunburned skin!
We all know how important it is to drink extra H2o in the summer but we also have to make sure our skin is extra hydrated! Use a high quality moisturizer every single day after washing your face, like our Antioxidant Hydrating Fluid. Need hydration on the go? Our Facial Mists are perfect to throw in your purse to take with you for a quick refresh during the day (they come in both Rose & Lavender).
Protect Your Face!
We all love a good suntan but protection is KEY to long term skin health. Invest in a good sunless tanner like this one, stay in the shade as much as you can, wear a wide brim hat, and most importantly wear your SPF!
Load Up on Antioxidants
Antioxidants in AND on your body are a MUST in the summer. Nourishing foods like berries, plums, leafy greens, and even dark chocolate (yess!!) are great options. Antioxidant rich products like our Coconut & Olive Oil Body Lotion, Sugar Body Scrub, and Rosie Glow Face Mask + Scrub are perfect for your summer skin.
Heal that Sunburn
It happens - we’ve all been there. In addition to aloe vera gel, lather on our Shea Salve to help heal the burn and protect the skin. It’s made with Shea butter, coconut oil, and a touch of lavender and rosemary essential oils to nourish and hydrate the skin.
