Summer Skincare Tips & Natural Soap
Summer is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the warm weather. For me, it's all about spending time outdoors, soaking up some Vitamin D, and enjoying a cold drink. There's nothing better than relaxing under a tree by the water on a hot summer day, and I always feel so relaxed and refreshed after spending time in the sun. But while it's important to enjoy the warm weather, it's also important to take care of your skin. Exposure to the sun can cause premature aging and increase your risk of skin cancer. One way to protect your skin is to use natural organic soaps. Unlike commercial soaps, which often contain harsh chemicals, natural soaps are made with ingredients that are gentle on the skin. In addition, our natural soaps contain essential oils that can help to soothe and moisturize the skin.
The warmer weather and higher humidity level can cause all sorts of skin problems, from breakouts to dehydration. Here are a few tips to help you keep your skin looking its best all season long.
Specific for the face is our botanical facial cleanser. Made with all-natural ingredients like herbs and botanical extracts, this cleanser is gentle yet effective, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and clean. And because it’s all-natural, you can feel good about using it knowing that it won't harm your skin or the environment. Botanical facial cleansers are ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin. So, if you've been searching for a facial cleanser that's both gentle and effective, give botanical facial cleansers a try. You won't be disappointed.
Body butters are one of the best ways to moisturize your skin. Unlike lotions, which are mostly water, body butters are made with beeswax, oils, and butters, making them much more hydrating. Beeswax and calendula body butter are great for dry, chapped skin, while mango and cocoa butter body butter are perfect for smoothing down rough patches. Our body butters are perfect for quenching thirsty skin. You can use our body butters all over your body, or you can apply them to specific areas that need extra moisturizing.
And don’t forget about those lips. Have you ever noticed how chapped your lips feel after a long day in the sun? If you're looking for a way to keep your lips hydrated and healthy all year round, you should try using a natural lip balm. Lip balms made with ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, and cocoa butter can help to lock in moisture and protect your lips from environmental damage. They can also provide a bit of shine and color, making them perfect for everyday wear.
While these tips will all help keep your skin pampered during the summer, remember the 2 most important things are a good natural sunscreen and good ole’ H2O. Natural sunscreen helps to block the sun's harmful rays, while still allowing your skin to breathe. Find ones that contain no parabens and no fragrance. And of course, water is essential for keeping your skin hydrated. Not only will it help you avoid heat stroke, but it will also keep your skin looking its best. Enjoy your summer days knowing you’re taking care of your skin.
