Summer Skincare Routine

Summer is a beautiful time to connect with nature, and our skin reflects how we care for ourselves both inside and out. Proper hydration and maintaining balance are essential to support the skin during these deliciously warm months. Here are some suggestions for a summer skincare routine to promote a radiant and healthy complexion:

 

SUMMER SKINCARE ROUTINE 

 

Morning Routine

Cleanse

Begin the day with Purifying Cleansing Gel. This cool, refreshing blend of Spearmint and Aloe Leaf Juice awakens the senses, while gently sweeping away excess oils, dead skin cells and  impurities, leaving skin feeling fresh and clear without stripping away its naturally protective moisture barrier. The formula helps oxygenate, purify, and decongest the skin, balancing sebum production and boosting vitality. A  refreshing morning ritual, Purifying Cleansing Gel is especially well suited to oily and combination skin.

 

Moisturize

The go-to moisturizer for summer skincare routines is Luminous Morning Crème. A featherlight blend that’s perfectly hydrating without being occlusive, it is an ideal choice for hot and humid summer days. Fans love how well this crème layers underneath a sunscreen.

Formulated with citrus essences, which contribute Vitamin C, and with antioxidant-rich Baobab, this nutritive choice also brings a little extra sun protection to your routine. Feel your skin come alive as the uplifting scents of Neroli and Sweet Orange invigorate your senses, while also helping balance sebum production and improve suppleness. 

Luminous Morning Crème is perfect for all skin types, but particularly beneficial for oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.

 

Sun Protection

Embrace physical sun protection. Wear wide-brimmed hats that cast a protective shade over your face, and wrap yourself in light, airy fabrics that shield the skin. Sunglasses and parasols become your stylish allies, offering protection from sun exposure.

When planning to enjoy a day in the sun, wait 15 minutes after applying your favorite moisturizing creme and then add a broad spectrum mineral-based sunscreen, SPF 30 or above. Mineral sunscreen is formulated with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. 

These ingredients sit on the skin rather than absorbing into it, offering a reflective barrier against UV light. This final step in your routine will amplify skin’s protection against the sun, complementing the light, natural UV protection offered by the plant blends of our formulas. 

Be mindful to seek the cool sanctuary of the shade or enjoy the serenity of indoor spaces during the hottest periods of the day. The very early morning and later in the evening are beautiful times to be outdoors during the summer months.

 

Throughout the Day

Keep Essential C Tonic close by. This vibrant blend of Green Tea and citrus essences, including Bergamot, Orange Peel, and Grapefruit, offers skin an instant refresh, a cooling kiss of nature’s vitality whenever your skin feels the heat. 

A quick spritz revives your spirit and keeps your skin hydrated, and this practice helps protect your skin’s natural barrier function

 

Evening Routine

Cleanse & Exfoliate

After a day in the sun, take time to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin with Purifying Cleansing Gel to gently remove the day's residues, allowing your skin to breathe freely. 

For deeper refreshment, treat skin to exfoliating Epi-Peel  up to three times a week. 

This award-winning formula, infused with invigorating Moroccan Rosemary and Far West Native Spearmint, acts as a micro-exfoliator, facial mask, and natural peel all-in-one. Its mineral-rich Kaolin Clay base deeply cleanses, drawing out impurities and toxins, and increasing circulation, leaving your skin polished, refined, and glowing with a soft radiance.

 

Soothing Tonic

Follow your cleanse with Roman Chamomile Tonic. This soothing floral water, crafted with pure essence of Roman Chamomile, brings a calming touch after a day in the sun. Celebrated in traditional European herbalism, Chamomile helps reduce inflammation, restore hydration, and heal skin damage by strengthening the deepest tissues. Ideal for sun-exposed, sensitive, and overly dry skin, this formula gently balances and prepares your skin for a restful night's sleep.

 

Moisturize

Before bed, lavish skin with Intensive Repair Balm. This intensively hydrating moisturizer blends some of the most powerful regenerative botanicals in the world, from Helichrysum to White Lily and Lotus. Designed to treat damaged skin and beneficial for all skin types, it seals in moisture with a dewy, protective veil. Especially beneficial for depleted and thirsty skin after a day in the sunshine, it deeply hydrates, calms, and soothes, ensuring you wake up feeling refreshed and revitalized.

For very sun-damages skin, turn to Spontaneous Recovery Creme. Enriched with treasured remedies like Buriti Fruit Oil and Iris Root, this luxurious blend acts as a crème, serum, and oil all-in-one. It penetrates deeply to provide maximal protection from harsh elements, seals in moisture, and helps strengthen skin. 

 

Summer Skin Care Lifestyle Tips

Nourishing Your Skin From Within

Summer skincare transcends topical treatments; These warmer months are also a time to nourish your body from the inside out. Embrace the season's bounty, letting nature's gifts hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Incorporate hydrating foods into your diet, such as fresh salads, fruits, and vegetables. Think of vibrant, water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and leafy greens, which help to maintain your skin's hydration levels. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin plump and hydrated. 

Freshly juiced blends can also be incredibly beneficial. Combine fruits and vegetables such as orange, grapefruit, lemon, grape, carrot, ginger, and a touch of honey to create a symphony of flavors and nutrients. 

These ingredients are rich in Vitamin C and beta carotene, which work wonders to protect and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. Of course, each sip not only hydrates but also provides a moment of pure, healthful joy, supporting your skin’s natural radiance and vitality during the sunny summer months.

 

Rest & Relaxation

Never underestimate the power of rest. The skin repairs itself while we sleep, so create a sanctuary of peace where you can recharge. At the end of a long, sun-soaked day, treat yourself to a soothing herbal foot soak. Add a drop of pure Lemon or Lavender essential oil to a basin of cool water, close your eyes, and let the day’s heat dissolve away. Follow with a gentle massage using Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil to nourish your feet and calm your spirit.

Embrace the season with nourishing and protective summer skin care and feel in harmony with nature’s rhythms. Enjoy the sun, warmth, and beauty of summer, knowing that your skin is cared for with love and intention.
