Summer Essentials

Summer is here and the sun’s out in full blast. We gathered some essential items to keep your skin in its best shape.

Toner

The summer heat makes us sweat more and causes those darn pores to open up. To prevent dirt and excess oils from creeping into the pores, use a toner after cleansing to tighten the pores and balance your skin’s pH levels. Pro-tip: put your toner in a spray bottle to instantly spritz and cool down the skin! (Maybe include a toner of ours as an example)

SPF

Although staying in the sun is a lot of fun, the sun’s rays can be extremely damaging to the skin without proper protection. Be sure to use SPF of at least 15 on the face and body to prevent premature wrinkles and cell damage. Try using the Too Much Fun in the Sun Mask or the Aloe Soothing Renewal Mask to soothe, moisturize, and calm your skin after soaking in the sun! Both masks contain chamomile flower extract and aloe vera to relieve and soothe skin sensitivity. It also contains witch hazel to help keep your skin’s oil in balance.

Water

Healthy skin comes from within so stay hydrated! Be sure to drink plenty of water, especially in the summer heat! If you don’t drink enough water, your skin will feel tight and dry, and may lead to wrinkles. Pro-tip: bring a re-usable water bottle with you so you can always stay hydrated wherever you go!

Keep a hair tie in your bag or on your wrist so you can keep your hair away from the face and allow the breeze to pass by. Hair ties are also handy when you want to use sheet masks!

Smoothie bowls

A nutritious and healthy snack never tasted so good! Smoothie bowls are not only a good way to increase your fruit and fiber intake, but also a great way to cool down the body since it’s nice and cold.
