Top Summer Skin Care Tips

June 18, 2019

Temperatures are rising and longer days are on the way to lift our spirits! It’s hard to be down when the skies are blue and the sun is out in all its glory.

One thing that may seem a little tricky though, is taking care of your skin when it’s hot and sticky out.  Many women are tempted to ditch skincare products entirely, but trust us this will actually do more harm than good.

Read on for a few of our absolute favorite tips to have you enjoying glowing, dewy skin for the season and beyond!

Amp up the hydration two ways

Hydration from the inside out as well as from the outside in is key in keeping your skin healthy and looking its best. 

Hydration involves drinking enough water, as well as applying products that will add a deep dose of moisture without leaving your skin feeling greasy.

Aim for at least two liters of water a day, more if you’re sweating in the sun.  Add in some lemon, cucumber and mint for a refreshing antioxidant boost!

Our Rose Glow Brilliance Protection Soufflé is brimming in exotic butters like mango butter along with an infusion of antioxidants to hydrate, protect, brighten and balance the skin. Be sure to apply a healthy mineral sunscreen on top for daytime wear.

 

Don’t do this at night

Don’t even think about hitting the sheets with your makeup on!  After a day of sweating, it’s absolutely essential to remove dirt, sweat and grime to prevent clogged pores and annoying breakouts.

Use a gentle, yet effective cleanser, formulated with gentle oils and powerful actives for a deep down clean that will never strip your skin.

Keep it simple

Avoid overly complicated regimes and follow a simple ritual morning and night.

We’ve mentioned our cleanser and soufflé, but don’t underestimate that second step!

Our Brightening Essence won’t only reveal your inner goddess, it will help to soothe and calm inflamed, irritated skin, as well as prep your skin for follow up products. 

In 3 simple steps you could have healthy, glowing skin!

 

Munch on these summer fruits

Did you know that there are some fruits, so high in water content, that they actually rival a glass of water?

Stay hydrated in the sun and add in some electrolytes by munching on strawberries, watermelon, cucumber, peaches, pineapple and melon.

Whip up this delicious virgin pina colada, bursting in electrolytes and healthy fats to keep you hydrated and your energy levels high.

 

These simple tips will have your skin well prepped and now you're ready to enjoy everything the sunshine season has to offer!  Happy Glowing!
