Summer is hard on your beauty routine, whether it's face, hair or body. With the right beauty essentials, you can combat sun damage and clogged pores, but it's hard to keep all the key products straight. Instead of staying in a rut with your basic skincare routine, take better care of yourself with these suprising you products you haven't tried yet.
1. Sulfate free shampoo ($20 at Odylique)
Sulfate free shampoo is crucial because it contains natural hair nutrients and eliminates the need for conditioner. That means you're not clogging your hair with shampoos or conditioners that use silicone and leave more damage. We recommend the Gentle Herb Shampoo or Tea Tree + Herb Shampoo from Odylique because they are certified organic, fair trade, cruelty free and and work ~wonders~ on your hair. Why wouldn't you say yes to quality shampoo that also gives natural vitality?
2. Therapeutic facial wipes ($7.99 at Earth Therapeutics)
Korean beauty is all the rage, and it's wonderful to use products that are good for the earth as well as human beings. That's why choosing natural facial wipes in the new generation of Korean skincare is a must. With facial towelettes by Earth Therapeutics, you can wipe away makeup and impurities, and still leave your skin hydrated. Talk about a win-win!
3. Retinol facial serum ($95 at Revision Skincare)
Summer is the prime season of sun damage, but luckily a retinol based facial serum can replenish skin from the sun's effects. We recommend Retinol Complete from Revision Skincare because it's an antioxidant powerhouse that's proven to brighten and protect your skin. What more could a girl want?
4. Facial toner ($44 at Fresh)
Toner does exactly what it says, and kind of evens out your face while making your pores look nice. After getting blotchy in the sun and clogging your skin with goopy sunscreen, a toner is the perfect thing for cleaning and healing your face at the end of the day. Specifically, the Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner from Fresh is gentle and great for increasing hydration.
5. Organic body scrub ($15-$25 at Erin's Faces)
Body scrubs are packed with oils, sugars and powders that your skin craves, and they're essential for healing damaged summer skin. Our pick is the variety of body scrubs available at Erin's Faces, not only because we love their organic, cruelty free platform, but because their scrubs really do heal your skin and take them to the next level. Whether you're using their Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub filled with essential oils, or their Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub for improving skin's vibrancy, you're getting a yummy-smelling, all natural care experience.
