Summer is finally here and it's time to celebrate the season with some of the simplest, healthiest and sexiest skincare essentials. For me, summer skin is all about keeping it fresh and easy. I've recently discovered a new batch of safe and sustainable products that I think will be perfect for your summer adventures. For those of you who prefer making your own skincare, I've also included a couple DIY recipes courtesy of some friends. Enjoy! Xoxo Alexis
This is the perfect summer cleanser. It's light yet surprisingly nourishing for dry skin. Loaded with nature's best skin soothers like Water Lily extract, this super gentle creamy cleanser calms redness and inflammation on contact. DPHP and organic algae increase elasticity, boost collagen production and ensure long-lasting hydration. Leaves skin looking and feeling rejuvenated with a soft glow. Fragrance-free and pH balanced.
This hydrating mist is ideal for when your skin is feeling a bit fatigued by the sun or when your makeup needs a brightening boost. Sea Minerals promotes skin's natural ability to absorb moisture and oxygenate. USDA certified organic Patagonian seaweed extracts and Dead Sea Crystals provide a thorough therapeutic mineral treatment. Helps restore mineral balance to sun-damaged skin and reduces redness, tightness and inflammation. A quick spritz helps seal makeup against humidity. Store in fridge for a refreshing after-sun elixir.
I love body oils. They are the perfect way to moisturize skin year round. Herbivore's Jasmine Body Oil absolutely screams summer and leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling like a magical summer night. Named for the precious Jasmine Sambac and Egyptian Jasmine oils that it contains, the Jasmine Body Oil is a blend of pure, natural botanical oils for glowing and hydrated skin with an intoxicating scent.
