When it comes to my summer beauty routine I am always looking for new natural products to help create flawless skin and a glowing complexion. This year, I’ve found three must-have natural skin savers guaranteed to have you looking your best by the pool, beach or lake. Best of all? They are all organic, vegan and healthy all over.
- Create an Instant Glow
Okay, truth be told, golden skin won’t exactly be yours with the snap of your fingers. But you will get a sun-kissed look, without the sun, in under four hours.
Let’s admit it, we all look healthier with a golden tan – can you imagine pulling off a bikini without a bit of a glow? But too much sun exposure and your skin won’t look healthy for long. That’s why I love Lavera Self Tanning Lotion.
Finally, an organic and vegan product that actually works! This 100 per cent plant-based lotion is streak-free, and extremely gentle on skin. It is derived from sugar and a variety of oils including soybean, macadamia nut, Shea butter and sunflower to moisturize your skin as it gives you a natural looking tan.
I can honestly say I love the way this self-tanning lotion feels on my skin. Plus, it moisturizes without any funky scent and doesn’t leave your clothes or sheets with orange streaks. A summer must!
- A Beautiful Rose
Roses have been used for beauty since ancient times. Extracts of this delicate flower are high in polyphenols, which are known to reduce skin damage, inflammation, scarring and sun pigmentation. Specifically, the Damascus rose hydrosol is high in vitamin C, which is responsible for stimulating collagen and elastin production. Essential rose oils also have strong anti-inflammatory properties, and are known to reduce redness, acne and skin irritations.
A mask is one of the quickest and most efficient ways for these infused serums to become absorbed into your skin. I love to give my skin a hydrating blast with Andalou Naturals 1,000 Roses Instant Hydration Mask. Organic alpine rose stem cells and rosewater are combined with a fruit stem cell complex to instantly hydrate, nourish and protect your skin for a radiant complexion.
Each mask sheet comes in an individual packet that you can easily remove and place on a clean face. Then let it dry for 10 to 20 minutes, peel and toss. No need to rinse, making it so easy to use. I use this mask once or twice a week for great results.
- Tone Up
Roses are kind of my thing this summer, and Shelby Naturals’ Rose Petal Toner is the perfect way to freshen up your skin throughout the day. Its essential rose oils contain potent antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins and minerals to moisturize and help to refine your skin’s texture.
The dewy spritz smells like fresh rose petals, and leaves me feeling more relaxed and happy.
Toss this organic spray into your bag, and mist when laying by a pool or running around in the summer heat. Just a few spritzes, and your pores will open up and be instantly hydrated, creating a soft dewy look. Plus, it balances your skin’s pH levels and protects the skin throughout the day while regenerating and boosting collagen production. Hey, we all need to stop and smell the roses once in awhile.
Kirsty’s Tip: I love to use the Rose Petal Toner to prime my skin before applying makeup, giving my skin a hydrated glow.
