Leisurely days at the beach or pool are something to look forward to this summer! But how do you care skin when it’s exposed to excessive heat, humidity, salt water, and chlorine? The good news is even when your skin is exposed to the harsher elements of summer, you can still achieve healthy, radiant skin by considering the following recommendations.
More time in the sun means more exposure to damaging UV rays. We recommend choosing a non-nano zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide-based sunscreen. There are many options that are non-toxic and reef safe. Consistent use of sunscreen will protect your precious skin and help prevent the external signs of aging such as wrinkles and brown spots. Apply your sunscreen generously and reapply every 2 hours for maximum protection. Now’s the time to bring out your fabulous wide-brimmed hat to protect your scalp and skin from harmful UV rays. Throw on a pair of sunglasses with 100% UV protection to shield your beautiful eyes.
Excessive heat can lead to irritation and redness. Support inflamed skin by using our Herbal Mint Cleanser. The organic peppermint oil will leave flushed skin feeling refreshed and cool. Gently exfoliate your skin by blending equal parts Herbal Mint Cleanser with our Ocean Berry Gommage. Apply to the skin and massage gently in circular motions, then leave on for 10 minutes. Remove thoroughly and follow with a dime-sized amount of Avocado Rosehip Moisturizer on dampened skin. Your skin will be fresh and glowing!
Flood your body and skin with plenty of antioxidant support to combat environmental damage. Our Amber Primrose Facial Oil with 25% Vitamin C will help reduce hyperpigmentation and prevent future sun damage. Dark berries are a fabulous addition to your antioxidant repertoire; use them in a smoothie to increase your antioxidant intake boosting your system from the inside out.
