Caring for Your Skin During the Summer


Caring for your skin all year round is important but during the summer months when our skin is exposed to the sun it needs some extra love. In recent years I have started to really take sun protection seriously but I haven't always been that way. I used to use tanning beds and lay out in the sun for hours throughout high school and college. I know know, it is BAD! Since then I have totally changed the way I care for my skin especially during the summer when I am out in the sun much more. I never leave my house without sunscreen on my face and I always keep a bottle in my car as well. This Alba Botanica coconut clear SPF 50 is what I have been using on my body when I'm at the beach, hiking with Angus or if I know I'll be out in the sun for a long period of time. The spray bottle makes it super easy to apply and it absorbs into your skin very nicely. It doesn't leave your skin feeling super oily like other spray sun screens. 

After a day of fun in the sun at the beach my skin can feel a bit grimy, especially my face. That is where the Warming Mud Mask comes in handy.  "For deep down detoxification, let this naturally warming mud mask soften and prime pores for maximum extraction of stubborn pollutants embedded within skin. Mineral-rich volcanic clay gently exfoliates before it soaks up the dirt, oil and bacteria that cause complexion chaos." This leaves your skin feeling so healthy and refreshed! 

The best part about these products is that they contain no synthetic fragrances, no harsh sulfates, no parabens or phthalates and no artificial colors.  These products will have your skin ready for some fun in the sun!
