In the dog days of summer, nothing feels more refreshing than quenching your thirst with a big gulp of water, and, after exposure to sun, sweat and surf all day, your skin likely feels the same way.
Just like the rest of your body, your skin needs extra hydration to recover from a day in the hot summer sun. From soothing gels to moisturizing mists, these natural summer beauty products are perfect for a warm-weather cool-down.
For morning moisturization: Weleda Gentle Cleansing Foam
Your morning cleanse is always important, but it’s essential in summertime. Weleda’s new cleansing foam contains witch hazel to detox your skin from oil and dirt, without stripping its natural moisture.
For quenching thirsty skin: Mad Hippie Hydrating Nutrient Mist
Dull skin calls for an extra boost of hydration in the heat of summer. Mad Hippie’s hydrating mist provides a double-shot of nutrients, including antioxidants to restore and refresh sun-kissed skin.
For potent sun protection: Goddess Garden Sport Mineral Sunscreen Stick
We need SPF all year round, but especially under the scrutiny of the scorching summer sun. In a convenient stick format, this sunscreen provides on-the-go protection from UV rays - plus, it’s reef-safe to boot!
For soothing under-eyes: Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel
Too often, we neglect the sensitive skin around our eyes, which can lead to sunburn if we aren’t careful. This cooling under-eye gel relieves the sting of the sun as well as baggy lids from a late-night beach bonfire.
For sunburned skin: Herbivore Botanicals After Sun Soothing Aloe Mist
Once you’ve made the mistake of forgetting the sunscreen, you’ll need to remedy the aftermath! Herbivore’s after-sun mist helps speed recovery by delivering lightweight moisturization to sunburned skin.
For awakening lips: 100% PURE Organic Mint Mojito Lip Balm
You can’t start every day with a summer cocktail - or can you? After using this cooling mint mojito lip balm, you won’t be able to tell the difference between this fresh summer flavor and the real thing.
