5 Tips for Your Best Summer Skin + Hair

As the weather changes so do our beauty needs. Hot weather, sun, sweat and salt water can wreak havoc on our skin and hair. Get summer ready and stay glowing all season long with these 5 simple tips.

Exfoliate your way to Brighter Skin

Exfoliation is the quickest way to achieve a brighter complexion instantly. Exfoliation involves getting rid of dead skin cells to reveal new, smoother skin underneath. Doing so preps your skin so that it can absorb products more fully and leaves your skin radiant. If your skin feels dry or looks dull it may be time for thorough exfoliation!

Try Urban Oreganics Activated Charcoal Cleansing Grains. Not only does this product gently remove dead skin cells, it may also remove toxins, minimizes pores, and absorb oil, helping to keep your skin blemish free.

Opt for a Lightweight Daily Moisturizer

Hot, sticky summer days can make it tempting to skip the moisturizer altogether, but we don’t recommend it.  A good moisturizer protects your skin against environmental pollutants and helps to balance sebum levels so that your skin doesn’t over-produce oil. Forgoing moisturizer causes your to produce more oil to substitute for the lack of moisture in your skin. Excess oil can leads to breakouts. Opt for a moisturizer that is lightweight and non-greasy, but still packed with healthy nutrients to feed your skin.

One Love Organics Skin Savior  is the perfect multi-purpose moisturizer you need in your purse this summer. Rich in antioxidants like chia and coconut oil, this is truly a skin savior for all skin types and the lush tropical scent is to die for.

Treat your Locks

The sun doesn’t just affect your skin, your hair suffers too! To keep your hair silky and smooth and to prevent dryness, we recommend a good hair treatment at least once a week.

Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil  is a luxurious, yet affordable deep oil treatment that consists of a blend of Coconut, Camellia, Moringa, Marula, and Black Seed oils to leave your hair deeply hydrated and nourished.

Stay Hydrated (Inside and Outside)

It’s essential to drink water every day, but it becomes even more important during summer when your body is constantly losing water through your pores. A lack of water will not only affect your health, it will show up in your skin. Water keeps the skin plump and hydrated and your lips smooth. Chapped lips are often signs of mild dehydration.

Did you know that by spraying water onto your skin, your skin absorbs the water and it can help to plump your skin and make it look more awake?

Little Barn Apothecary Mint + Coconut Cooling Mist can help to soothe your skin and cool you down during the day. Its light mint and coconut scent is instantly refreshing. Store your bottle in the fridge for hot days when you need extra relief from the heat.

Clean the Day Away

Hot days mean you’re sweating more than usual and it’s extra important to thoroughly cleanse your skin of the buildup of dirt, oils and makeup that can clog your pores.

A day of sun means your skin craves soothing ingredients like chamomile, frankincense and lavender, which you will find in LilFox Botanicals Chamomilla Infusion Makeup Remover. This soothing formula is even gentle enough to be used on the eyes without causing irritation.

We hope these tips help you to have a beautiful summer! Don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen!
