Summer. Time for refreshing fruit salads, swimming, water sports, long weekends, and shorter work days on Friday. Who doesn't love that?
During summer we spend a lot more time outdoors. The warm temperatures, blazing sun, humid conditions, and salt- and chlorine-infused water can wear out your skin. You might suffer from dry/irritated skin, sun allergies and burns, folliculitis, and acne breakouts.
So we've put together 5 tips to help you take care of your skin and glow all summer long!
Rule #1 is to protect your skin from those sun rays!
Wear SPF 30 or higher every time you're outdoors, even if there is cloud cover. Reapply sunscreen after swimming and excessive sweating. Apart from the face and neck, make sure you don't miss your ears, behind your knees, lips, and tops of the feet.
We also suggest using clothing to cover up. But don't let this replace sunscreen!
In addition to using both clothing and sunscreen, we recommend using skincare products with high concentrations of aloe vera.
Most people know that aloe vera helps heal damage from the sun, but did you know it can provide up to 20% protection from the sun as well. When used with sunscreen, it can also help sunscreen penetrate the skin deeper and last longer.
Combined with an SPF 30 sunscreen, skincare products high in aloe vera will give you what your skin needs.
We suggest Awakening Organic Body Lotion for your body and Rosehip & Calendula Triple Cream for your face.
These products use aloe vera from Sole Toscana's organic Italian farm as the base ingredient to help protect, hydrate, and sooth your sun-kissed skin.
Working out is one of the best ways to get your skin looking radiant.
Exercise can take many forms - don't worry if you aren't a gym enthusiast. Yoga, dancing, house chores, a brisk walk or gardening are all forms of workouts.
Getting outside during the summer will certainly guarantee some sweating.
But also know that every time you sweat, your skin loses its natural oils. That's why it's important to cleanse and hydrate after sweating.
After sweating off some natural oils, we don't want to use a harsh face wash that strips more natural oils.
The Rosewater Wellspring Cleanser is 100% natural & organic. It's gentle ingredients are perfect after days in the sun.
In addition to cleansing, the Rosewater Wellspring Cleanser tones your skin with it's key ingredient of Rosewater. This 2-in-1 cleanser and toner will save you from buying an additional toner. Oh, and once again, its base ingredient is aloe vera - giving you the hydrating, nourishing, and soothing benefits of this precious ingredient.
Sweaty, oily skin does not take makeup well. So lighten up your makeup routine for the summer to prevent breakouts and clogged pores. You are naturally beautiful!
Great skincare products will help you feel more confident with less makeup, in your naturally beautiful skin. One of our favorites is Espresso Bright Eyes. This eye cream will brighten your eyes with its strong natural and organic ingredients!
Antioxidants give you extra protection that SPF doesn't. Ensuring your skin gets proper antioxidants, especially on your face, is crucial to protection and repair. An all natural and organic serum like the Neroli Radiance Serum, is perfect for the job.
This serum is packed with great natural and organic antioxidants, vitamins, and high-quality ingredients from the Italian countryside. It will help protect, repair, and revitalize your your skin on a daily basis during the summer months.
An important note: Retinol (vitamin A) is fantastic, but remember it's not recommended in the summertime as it increases sun sensitivity. It's more suited for fall and winter seasons.
Finally, don't forget to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. You can quickly become dehydrated when spending time out in the sun, so you should have water with you at all times. Water helps your organs function properly, including the skin. You might notice that your skin looks dull and lifeless when you don't drink enough water.
If you have a hard time chugging down the advised eight glasses a day, try carrying a small water bottle with you wherever you go. This way, you have a constant reminder before you to hydrate.
And remember, tea and coffee don't count, as they encourage the body to lose water through urine. Plain ol' water is the key.
In addition to drinking, your skin will need hydration all summer long. Sweating, swimming, and the sun can take it's toll on your largest organ - your skin. A proper skincare routine with the proper skincare products is key.
