Springtime Skin Care Do's and Don'ts

Posted by Carson eCommerce Collaborator on

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.

Sapelo Skin Care Do's and Don'ts
1. Pack the Essentials: We know, we know -- it’s difficult to pick just one or two of your favorite skin care products, especially when those products are from Sapelo. Organize your products and prioritize the ones you use on a daily basis to make the trip with you. If you’re having to hop on a plane to reach your vacation destination and plan to travel only with a carry-on, ensure your skin care products are within the liquid limit. Insider, hint: Nearly all Sapelo products are within the TSA approved volume!

2. Invest in Moisture: Whether you’re beach bound or headed hiking in the mountains, this tip is for you! Skin can dehydrate quickly when you’re traveling compared to when you are in your own home. Whether affected by climate and altitude change, exposure to the sun or even snow, there are numerous opportunities for moisture to leave your pores. That’s why it is so important to invest in moisture and reapply often on your trip. Sapelo’s 3-Step System is a must for all-day (and night) hydration. When more moisture is paramount, we recommend our Renewing Serum -- it’s loaded with hyaluronic acid. What, an acid, you think? Well, hyaluronic acid  is a naturally occurring molecule in our body. It’s job is to act like a sponge -- attracting and soaking up 1,000 times its weight in water. Your face will stay plumped and hydrated with a few drops of this luxurious serum. And, don’t forget -- a little water goes a long way! Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. One of our favorite tips for keeping our bodies cool in the south: Add a bit of cucumber to your water for a refreshing and delicious way to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized.

3. Sunscreen, Sunscreen, SUNSCREEN: We know how wonderful it feels to soak up the sun, BUT we also know the cost. Consider the long-term, damaging effects caused by constant sun exposure with no protection. In Savannah, hats are a must. They are a great way to shield our complexion from the sun and can also add a pop of fashion when gardening or strolling by the sea. And, at Sapelo, we are always looking for wise ways to take care of our skin (and bodies). So, let’s talk about sunscreen options:

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.
