4 Steps To Nourished, Glowing Skin All Summer Long

The sun is shining. Birds are chirping. Picnics in the park are in full swing! With all this fun, it's easy to forget and stay a few minutes too long in the sun and get burned. We all know how painful that can be. 

Follow these quick tips to ensure glowing, nourished skin all summer long. 

1. Cover up!

I know it's hot and you are ready to show off that summer body, but don't forget your clothes at home! Bring a hat, layering piece, or umbrella for when your body says enough is enough. 

2. Stay hydrated

Just like your momma told you! In the summer sun, we can never drink enough. With proper hydration your skin glow and every system in your body will thank you.  

3. Use a natural sunscreen

Know what's in your sunscreen and READ THE LABEL! If it contains the following, RUN. 

Look for a mineral sunscreen, like non nano zinc oxide. Here are links to a few of my favorites. 

When you read the ingredients you'll notice oils, particularly Red Raspberry Seed Oil which is great for sun protection just on it's own, for those who like to keep it super simple. 

4. Have A Solid After Sun Care Routine

The sun can cause massive stress to the skin and it's vital to have a go to after sun skincare routine. My favorites? I am so glad you asked. 

Whole Clarity Toner and Body Lotion are anti inflammatory and wonderful for healing the skin WITHOUT peeling. Check out the Toner here and the Body Lotion here.

May the sun shine upon you but never too much!  Enjoy the summer days,
