It’s that time of year again; the time where everyone begins to think about spring and all that it entails -- traveling, gardening, sports and, of course, outdoor entertaining. No more bracing for the cold -- we hope. The warm weather always makes our minds wander...be it traveling to antique bazaars, garden tours or those dreamy vacations near and far. We understand that prepping for a changing season can be exciting -- just the lighter, brighter wardrobe shift instantly perks our spirits. Here are some quick tips to enhance your beauty routine and improve your complexion.
Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide and Avobenzones are the most commonly used ingredients in sunscreen. While these are excellent in that they provide a barrier on the skin’s surface for UV protection, there are some problems. Zinc is a natural mineral that is necessary for human life, whereas Titanium is potentially toxic and carcinogenic and has no benefit to the human body (that we know of). Likewise, Avobenzones, which are found in most over-the-counter sunscreens, are also potentially carcinogenic. It is crucial that any product that is possibly toxic not be used on infants and children. Mamas, check your labels before applying sunscreens! Stick with Zinc!
4. Treat Yourself: Traveling can be exhaustive, especially when you’re always on the go. Whether you’re sightseeing, beach strolling, or mountain top skiing, your skin can easily be exhausted without the proper care. That’s why it is so important to give your skin some ~special treatment~ while on vacation. Apply a cleansing mask, like our Anti-Aging Enzyme Mask, or rejuvenate your skin’s cell-stimulating factors with our Renewing Serum. Your skin will thank you for the extra TLC, we guarantee it!
5. Take Time for Yourself: It’s imperative to give your skin (and your mind) time to relax and recharge. Always spend time cleansing, conditioning and moisturizing your skin. Grab our Renew Skin Care Collection if you (and your complexion) are feeling stressed, tired and exposed. You’ll return to the post-getaway reality with a completely transformed complexion.
