It happens to all of us—we enjoy a beautiful, long day at the beach or in the garden so much more than our skin does. But not to worry! Here are my favorite post-sun tips, which should quickly restore and revive depleted skin.
Though sunblock protects skin, it can also strip our natural protective barrier and draw away moisture, so you should remove it at the earliest possible moment. In the summer heat, Purifying Cleansing Gel, full of healing spearmint, has such a wonderfully cooling effect. I use a few pumps in a cool-to-luke-warm shower as an invigorating face and body wash.
In order to help the complexion rebound, I love the nourishing oils blended into Capillary Strengthening Blend—from Chamomile, Neroli and Rose to Carrot Seed—all soothing and anti-inflammatory healing antidotes that support new growth and replenish vital nutrients.
After a day of sun, it also feels great to treat your over-heated body with therapeutically fragrant Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil. Lavender, besides leading the mind into a restful, balanced state, can reduce sunburn pain. And a good night’s sleep is absolutely essential to healing, as skin repairs itself most efficiently during our resting hours.
The oils included in all these formulas penetrate skin deeply and quickly, to speed recovery, while their true aromas keep that joyful summer mood buoyant.
I hope you’re enjoying all that summer has to offer!
