With May nearly here and the summer sun on its way, we have a few tips to get ready for the heat and humidity. The warm weather is welcomed with open arms, especially for us here at Skinny & Co. headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind.
Summer is a great time to soak up the sun’s wonderful gift of vitamin D! But, be careful of those UVA and UVB rays that can be quite damaging. Read along to hear some of our secrets to maintain healthy, glowing skin for the summer.
Secret 1: Protect your lips
The hot summer sun doesn’t just affect your skin; it can actually impact your lips as well. Using Skinny & Co.’s Lip Balm is the perfect, natural way to hydrate already chapped or sun damaged lips, help lips retain their moisture in dry environments, and help protect your lips from further sun damage.
Secret 2: Treat skin before and after time in the sun
If you don’t like chemically treated skin products, this is a great way to protect your skin! Pure Beauty, which takes our Skinny Coconut Oil and microfilters it down to remove all impurities so it is non-comedogenic and perfect for use on skin, has a natural SPF and is even better for aftersun care! That being said, be sure to talk to a dermatologist to best protect your skin this summer.
Secret 3: Get a glowing complexion
We love our Cleansing Balms & Makeup Removers for exactly what their name states they do, but did you know that it also serves as a great highlighter? Simply tap just a tad on the tops of your cheekbones and décolleté for a subtle, glowing accent.
Secret 4: Fight off pesky bugs
Outdoor activities are the best, especially when the sunsets and the weather cools just a bit, allowing you to enjoy time with friends and family around a bonfire. Unfortunately, insects also love the warm weather. To help fight off these pesky creatures, us Peppermint Oil Pulling Coconut Oil! This will create a natural and gentle insect repellent. If you still end up with a few unwanted itchy spots, you can also use it to help keep the itching sensation at bay.
Secret 5: Travel with ease
Whether you’re headed somewhere southern and warm, or traveling closer to home, we recommend our Skinny & Co. Travel Kit. Now, your favorite Skinny products can go with you on the road (or the sky!). This kit includes a 2 oz. jar of Pure Beauty Coconut Oil, a Mini Raw Shampoo Bar, a 2 oz. jar of Rejuvenating Cleansing Balm & Makeup Remover, Raw Lavender Deodorant, and Peppermint Lip Balm, all in a convenient, clear travel bag. This is also a great way to try out products and maybe even find a new favorite.
