You change your wardrobe come summer; it only makes sense to do the same with the beauty and summer skin care products you use. Take heed of your body’s response to climate change: it’ll need different things to accustom itself to the humidity, sun, and heat. Never estimate the power of even the littlest switch-ups in your routine. It’ll make a difference in how the rest of your skin looks and feels.
- Cleanse. Try either our AHA Botanical Body Soap (a cult favorite) or Citrus Body Cleanser. Both gently exfoliate to rejuvenate and leave skin feeling refreshed. The AHA Botanical Body Soap is also great for keeping body skin clear and free of acne.
- Tone. If you’re starting to see back and chest breakouts (typically a result of warmer weather), treat affected areas with our Special Cleansing Lotion “O,” which works best paired with our Citrus Body Cleanser.
- Exfoliate. For brighter, smoother, softer skin, exfoliate regularly about 1-3 times a week. Gently massage our Raspberry Body Scrub in circular motions before shaving, moisturizing, and/or applying self-tanner.
- Indulge. For an at-home beach getaway, indulge with an aromatic bath and body gel that cleanses and nourishes. Our Seaweed Bubble Bath & Shower Gel is a staycation essential that smells divine – it’ll bring the beach to you, whenever, wherever.
- Moisturize. Sun exposure and temperature extremes (sweltering outdoors, then air conditioning cranked up high once you’re inside) can leave skin tight and dry. Your usual lotion may feel a little too rich and heavy in the heat, so exchange it for a lighter formula. Our Formula 200 Body Lotion is non-greasy, lightweight, and absorbs easily into the skin. Work it into the skin, and you’re ready to go.
- Get a sunless tan. Instead of exposing yourself to damaging UV rays, make the healthy switch to self-tanners. Be sure to exfoliate well before applying our Self-Tanning Lotion for a gradual glow and bronzed tint of color.
- Protect with SPF. You hear it time and time again for good reason. Do it.
- Recreate a sun-kissed glow. For that extra bit of shimmer, apply our Summer Shine Body Lotion on your collarbones, shoulders, and legs.
- Calm and cool. Soothe sunburned skin with our After Sun Cooling Gel to relieve irritated skin. Aloe Extract relieves, and Camphor cools.
