It’s official, summer is here! With the turn of the season, we look forward to longer days, warmer weather and spending more time outside, reconnecting with Mother Nature. However, spending long periods of time in the sun isn’t the best for our skin, so we’ve put together our top tips on how to keep your skin protected throughout July and beyond.
Covering up; we know this is an obvious one, but it is oh so important! Popping on a wide-brimmed hat or throwing on a long sleeve linen shirt not only looks chic, but helps keep the harmful rays at bay. We also love to lounge under the shade of a parasol, many brands made parasols and sun umbrellas with UV filters in the fabric, ideal for keeping cool at the beach.
If you want to show a little more skin in the summer months, make sure it’s soft and smooth with a natural exfoliant, like our Awakening Body Scrub. Combining natural clay and sea salt with jojoba oil, it will leave your skin polished and deeply hydrated. Plus, the awakening blend of peppermint, rosemary, and lemongrass essential oils will uplift your senses, leaving you feeling rejuvenated.
Warm weather and air conditioning can cause havoc for your skin, leaving it feeling dry and dull. Find balance in the warmer weather with light moisturisers that will deeply hydrate and nourish your skin and face, without leaving it feeling sticky. Our Natural body Balm will melt into your skin, with a natural blend of of shea butter, coconut and calendula oils will leave it feeling luxuriously soft. Or opt for our Crystal Nourishing Cream as a summer face cream, with a blend of cacay oil and blue tansy it is abundant in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, key ingredients to help calm and soothe your skin.
With dry heat and air conditioning, we also find our lips are left feeling dry in the warmer months, so we also suggest keeping a lip balm in your bag or in the car for easy access. With a blend of jojoba, olive and coconut oil the balm will help plump and nourish the lips.
