Summer Skincare Tips

As the sun shines brighter and days stretch into long evenings, your skin may seek a shift in care to address warm weather challenges. Summer calls for refreshing formulas, soothing heat relief, and protection from the sun's intense rays. Let these summer skincare tips be your guide for radiant skin all season.


How to Tweak Your Skin-Care Routine for Summer

Increased exposure to UV rays, higher temperatures, and humidity can exacerbate skin issues like oiliness, breakouts, and dehydration. Small shifts in your routine can help ease these concerns, keeping your skin calm and refreshed.


Wash Your Face Properly

Summer calls for a cleanser to purify, cool, and soothe the skin. Cleansing skin thoroughly ensures impurities, dead skin cells, sunscreen buildup and potential toxins are gently whisked away from the surface, helping minimize blemishes and prevent clogging pores.  

Purifying Cleansing Gel, with its invigorating blend of Spearmint and nutrient-rich Alfalfa Leaf, offers a refreshing cleanse, while the uplifting scent awakens the heart to all of life’s possibilities. Aloe Leaf Juice, with its lavish hydration and a rich array of nutrients, Vitamins C and E, and amino acids, nourishes and rejuvenates the skin, while Spearmint stimulates circulation and acts as a natural astringent, enhancing skin vitality. Cucumber enhances this blend, promoting deep hydration and soothing delicate skin, particularly around the eyes.

Ideal for all skin types, especially combination and oily skin, this gel gently lifts away impurities while maintaining your skin's natural balance and preparing it to absorb tonics, serums, and creams more efficiently. Store it in the fridge before use for an extra burst of coolness for a truly refreshing summer skin care experience.


Level-Up Your Sunscreen and Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure during the summer months helps prevent far-reaching sun damage, such as fine lines, dark spots, or unhealthy cellular changes. 

Our formulas are rich with the gentle care of plant butter, the deep nourishment of oils, and the standout protection offered by natural Lotus Leaf wax, celebrated for its natural ability to help defend against UV rays.

When planning to enjoy a day in the sun, wait 30 minutes after applying your favorite moisturizing creme and then add 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 your skin’s protection against the sun. 


Apply the Right Amount of SPF

Apply sunscreen generously to the face and body for effective sun protection during sunny outdoor days. Complement mineral sunscreen with long-sleeved tops, sarongs, big sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, or even an elegant parasol for a physical barrier against the rays. These methods offer effective protection without overburdening the skin

Lighten Up Your Moisturizer

Luminous Morning Crème is the go-to moisturizer for a summer skincare routine, infused with Neroli and Sweet Orange to helps clarify, illuminate and protect the skin.

Full of nutrients, this daytime moisturizer protects against environmental stressors while imparting a luminous, refreshed look. Perfect for all skin types, Luminous Morning Crème is especially supportive of oily, combination, or acne prone skin. It absorbs quickly without clogging pores, making it ideal for hot and humid days.


Refresh Skin With a Mist - Revitalizing with Essential C Tonic

Essential C Tonic is the ideal summer companion for an instant on-the-go refresh. 

This energizing tonic, blended with Green Tea and a vibrant mix of citrus essences—Bergamot, Orange Peel, and Grapefruit—revives and balances skin. Perfect for a sun-drenched afternoon or whenever your skin needs a burst of freshness, this refreshing tonic supports rehydration, brings a bright burst of Vitamin C and antioxidants to the complexion, and whisks away dullness.


The Perfect Summer All-Rounder - Clarifying Dermagel

While summer's embrace brings warmth and light, it can also present challenges, such as blemishes, insect bites, razor burns, and wax irritation. 

Keeping Clarifying Dermagel close at hand is an essential summer skincare formula to soothe these discomforts with a potent blend of plant remedies. Thyme and Tea Tree oil offer potent antibacterial and antifungal benefits, effectively reducing inflammation and disinfecting the skin, making this blend an ideal solution for soothing insect bites and razor burn. 

Myrrh aids in healing, quickly reducing redness and swelling, especially after waxing. The gel's base, Aloe, hydrates without greasiness, maintaining skin moisture and elasticity through the summer heat. This combination ensures deep relief from the things that can stress summer summer skin.

Use a small amount on any blemish or active site of acne, smoothing over affected areas, morning and evening. Use the same technique to treat ingrown hairs, soothe insect bites, and calm skin after waxing. For an added touch of herbal care, after washing, create a simple face cloth soaked in warm or cold water infused with a drop of Lemon, Rosemary, or Spearmint essential oil. Apply gently to the face, then follow with Clarifying Dermagel for deep relief and protection.

Enjoy all the beauty this season brings. Embrace these sun-filled days with care and happiness!
