Calming Facemasks: Dry, dull skin is a side effect of extra toasty temps, so a facemask that fixes both is key. You don’t want something that’s too harsh and will make any existing dryness even more irritating. The Rosehip and Clay Facial Mask does double duty in calming the skin and drawing out impurities. For more of an exfoliation, massage into the skin for 2-3 minutes.
Icy Facial Rollers: Nothing feels quite as good after a hot day as the coolness of a green jade or black obsidian facial roller. On days that are scorchers, stick them in the freezer for a few hours before rolling. On top of benefits like reducing the appearance of fine lines and puffiness and increasing lymphatic drainage, a cold facial roller just feels luxe.
Nourishing SPF: A good sunscreen is the best thing you can do for your skin this summer. It’ll prevent premature aging and, most importantly, skin damage that can eventually lead to skin cancer. Something that reflects UVA+UVB rays will be best. For an SPF that does even more work, the Salt+Stone mineral-based sunscreen is a great add-to-cart. Its anti-inflammatory blend of cacao seed butter and aloe barbadensis leaf powder moisturize skin, so you’re soft and safe from the sun.
Herbal Tonic Face and Body Mist: There is one rule for hot summer days: Always be hydrating. For your skin, try a herbal tonic mist. Made with hydrosols, this mist is ultra moisturizing, helps fight inflammation and is mildly antiseptic. Work the mist in your normal skin care routine or toss it in a bag so you’ll have that refreshing feeling whenever you need it.
All the Aloe: The MVP of summer is most definitely aloe vera. Its highly anti-inflammatory properties make it great for sunburns, dry skin and even acne. This body wash brings all the power of aloe and shea butter to create the perfect hydrating and cleansing solution to a steamy day.We reach for the aloe leaf and mint hand and body cremé when we need a little more moisture without any of the greasy feeling that comes with some lotions and body butters. Healing aloe and vitamin E make skin soft and encourage elasticity.
