With summer a week away, it’s time to stock up on beauty & personal care products that will support you during the heat. Many believe a ‘less is more approach’ is the best way to maintain natural beauty for your hair, skin and nails. Below are 5 simple tips to remember when creating your summer beauty routine…
1. Constant Sun Protection:
Sun protection should be the number one priority of every skin care routine. Remember to read the SPF number on your sunscreen and reapply consistently throughout the day. Also note, many moisturizers include sunscreen protection as well.
2. Perfecting Beach Hair:
Nothing beats light, wavy, slightly sandy beach hair during summer. It’s a hard look to perfect. Studies suggest that less shampoo is better, especially during summertime.
Allow your hair to absorb natural minerals and salt from the sea and air-dry in the wind. Texturizing sea salt sprays are lightweight and can help complement a wavy look.
Hair Oils like Organic Coconut Oil and Tea Tree Oil Shampoo contain plant-sourced compounds that are great additions to a holistic routine. Always read labels and choose products with attributions like “paraben-free” and “cruelty-free.”
3. Skin Hydration:
Sun-kissed skin is susceptible to dryness. It’s important to add moisturizing creams and serums to your nighttime routine for everyday support.
4. Gentler Soaps:
Is your soap irritating you skin? Many formulas have too many ingredients in them. This can make it difficult to pinpoint which is causing you irritation. It might be time to substitute for something simpler…
Glycerin Soaps are made with plant-based botanicals that are soft on your skin. The formulas are simple and feature fresh, delightful scents. Lemon, Spring Rain and Aloe Vera are most popular for this time of year.
5. Holistic Lip Care:
Makeup and summer weather simply don’t mix. If you wear lipstick every you know the struggle. Sweat, humidity and rain all cause lipstick to smudge and run.
Swap out your daily lip stick for lip balm when possible. Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick, Shea Butter Lip Balm and Argan Lip Balm are great alternatives to lip sticks during summer. They’re lightweight, gentle on skin and super simple to apply!
Looking for additional products for your summer beauty routine? Beauty Supplements like Biotin, Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen provide additional nutrients for hair & skin. A dual approach of topicals and supplements is the best way to get complete support.
