As the seasons change, so does the skin! To support its ever-changing needs, we've highlighted a few of our favourite summer skincare ingredients so you can show your skin love all season long!
Blue Tansy Oil
Blue tansy is our go-to for red, itchy, or irritated skin, and especially for those prone to blemishes. However, all can benefit from its highly anti-inflammatory properties, bursting with antioxidants to support a healthy, glowing complexion.
We like to double down in the summer by applying our Clarity Blemish Treatment all over, twice daily to calm any inflammation from excessive sun exposure and to prevent blemishes during a season of heat and humidity.
Being part of the chamomile family, blue tansy has similar properties when inhaled. It can help you feel calm and grounded, perfectly at ease - consider it a top shelf beauty ingredient!
An entirely under-rated ingredient, matcha contains chlorophyll, a powerful detoxifier that helps clarify and protect your complexion, along with antioxidants that help protect and heal skin from UV rays! It’s also super brightening, incredibly anti-inflammatory, and contains astringent properties from tannins that help firm and tighten. Basically, it's an essential, so of course it's one of our favorite summer skincare ingredients - internal and external!
We've paired matcha with detoxifying charcoal and french green clay in our Charcoal + Matcha Detoxifying Masque. As we sweat more in the summer, we also tend to produce more sebum, making this masque the perfect remedy. Used one to three times per week for revitalized, soft, and balanced skin!
While many avoid oils in the summer, we believe that warmer weather simply means reaching for the right oils. A favourite? Marula!
Rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, marula oil is light and fast-absorbing, yet deeply hydrating. This wonder oil supports healthy skin, reduces redness and inflammation, and can improve skin elasticity thanks to critical antioxidants like vitamin E, polyphenols, and omegas 6 and 9. Naturally anti-microbial and appropriate for all skin types, expect to notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, redness and pigmentation!
A unique oil that behaves like a wax, jojoba is a beautiful oil that works for most complexions. It can mimic the skin's own sebum, making it a wonderful moisturizer that helps balance oil production, while breaking down grime and congestion. This is key year round, but especially in the warmer months when our skin creates more sebum.
Find jojoba in our Pink Coconut Body Oil and transport yourself to a tropical oasis with this beautifully scented blend of plant oils and extracts that absorb quickly, leaving your skin soft and glowing, without any greasy residue.
