Here are four essential tips to help you prep your skin and get a fresh-faced complexion, just in time for the sunny days ahead:

  1. Hydrate Inside and Out: As the temperatures rise, our skin tends to lose moisture more quickly. Make sure to hydrate from within by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Additionally, incorporate lightweight, hydrating skincare products into your skincare ritual, such as a refreshing facial mist that you can use throughout the day for a moisture boost, or a nourishing facial oil that locks in long-lasting hydration and provides an extra dewy glow. Aloe Vera, Jojoba, and Hyaluronic acid are all fantastic ingredients to look for, as they attracts moisture to the skin and help to maintain hydration levels.

  2. Exfoliate Regularly: Say goodbye to dull, winter skin by incorporating regular exfoliation into your skincare ritual. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, allowing your skin to better absorb moisturizers and serums. Opt for a gentle, natural exfoliant like our Soothing Polish with Jojoba, which can help unclog pores and improve skin texture without causing irritation. Remember to exfoliate no more than 2-3 times a week to avoid over-exfoliation.

  3. Sun Protection Is Non-Negotiable: Sunscreen should be your best friend year-round, but it's especially crucial during the summer months when UV rays are at their peak. We *love* a 2-in-1 product, so we suggest you opt for a moisturizing, natural SPF. Our lightweight Luminous Moisturizer is your summertime skincare bff with an all natural SPF 30 and nourishing ocean minerals that keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

  4. Treat Your Skin to Soothing Masks: After a day spent soaking up the sun, treat your skin to some much-needed TLC with a Soothing Hyaluronic Acid Mask that replenishes moisture and calms any inflammation or redness. Keep your masks in the fridge for an extra cooling effect, perfect for soothing sun-kissed skin.

  5. Use a Gua Sha: If you've been scrolling through your TikTok feed lately, chances are you've stumbled upon numerous videos singing the praises of the gua sha. This facial massage tool is touted for its ability to enhance circulation, reducing tension and puffiness across the face. By gently gliding it over your skin, you can stimulate lymphatic drainage and promote a plumper, more rejuvenated complexion, helping to minimize the appearance of imperfections. Oh, and you guessed it, keep it in the fridge for an extra refreshing effect!

There you have it—four simple yet effective tips to get your skin ready for summer and achieve that coveted, dewy, summer glow. Remember, consistency is key, so stick to your skincare ritual and enjoy the sunny days ahead with healthy, glowing skin!
