Sure, summer is the season to kick back, relax, and enjoy being outside, but it's also not the time to slack on your skincare routine. The sun rays can be harmful all year long but are especially damaging during the summer months when our exposure levels are higher. The sun can be a harsh and unpredictable friend to the skin. Taking the time to care for your skin this summer is definitely something to consider if you want to keep your skin looking youthful for as long as possible.
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Sun damage doesn't stop once you've sought out shade; the effects of UV exposure, including dry and itchy skin, can take from two to four hours to fully develop. You should always keep your skin hydrated by using a lotion or body butter after the shower. Soothe dryness and replenish moisture back into the skin with one of our private label lotions or body butter! Getting into the habit of applying body lotion often will keep your skin looking supple and hydrated. After a day in the sun, our skin craves the soothing and calming benefits of organic aloe. Aloe is a skin-beautifying plant that's been around for centuries and is used in many of our private label formulations today. This powerful plant paired with mineral-packed spirulina helps to promote calm, hydrated, and happy skin. If your skin is feeling parched in certain areas, add an aloe gel to your regimen like our private label Cooling Cucumber & Spirulina Gel.
Remember the Value of Plant-Powered Skincare
There are plenty of reasons to use natural skincare instead of traditional products, like avoiding potentially harmful synthetic chemicals. Plus, it's an eco-friendly option. Botanical skincare products formulated with organic and wildcrafted ingredients provide the skin with so many benefits. You will notice a difference in your skin when switching your beauty routine to cleaner skincare products. When in doubt, always turn to botanical skincare to help your skin.
Take Special Care of the Eye Region
While you choose moisturizers and toners for your face, remember that the skin around your eyes is much thinner and more delicate compared to the rest of your face. Pick an under eye gel with hyaluronic acid, cucumber, or even Vitamin C. These ingredients keep the skin around the eyes looking and feeling hydrated and firm.
