Repair and Protect Hair and Skin from the Harsh Summer Weather

One of my lease favorite seasons is summer. I live in the South and it’s always 100+ degrees, even late into October. The heat damages my skin and leaves me a sweaty mess. This does not bode well for my naturally oily skin.

The application and re-application of sunscreen and make up leaves my skin clogged and looking rough. The scorching sun usually leaves me with redness and burns. Because of this, I am super careful with the products that I apply to my skin.

Detox and Correct Skin after Harmful UV Rays and Chemicals

Clear Your Skin – Tox-Block & Cleanse Supplement detoxes the liver which, in turn, detoxes chemicals from the skin and blood stream. Supplements are easy to swallow and do not have a weird taste. When taken twice per day, skin improves by reducing redness and inflammation.

-Milk thistle – supports the liver in its hard work of processing chemicals and toxins
-Curcumin – a bioactive component of turmeric, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to offset stress, soothe and calm
-N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) – counters toxins and inflammation
-Alpha-Lipoic Acid – helps prevent cell damage and restore levels of vitamins E and C

Clear Your Skin – Decongest Fruit Enzyme Creme Mask After a long day of sweat and make-up running down my face, I like to give my pores a nice deep clean without striping my face and causing damages. The cream is nice and provides cooling relief in the dead of summer.

-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness
-Organic Pineapple Enzymes – gently sweep away dead skin cells to smooth texture, clear pores, and add glowOrganic
-Papaya Enzymes – reduce redness and spotchiness, exfoliate, tone, and help cool blemishes

Clear Your Skin – Resurfacing 1% Retinol Serum I use this at night to repair my cells after hours of sun exposure. It leaves no greasy feel and is perfect for recharging skin at the end of a long day.

-Retinol – supports skin elasticity and renewal, helps address the look of scars, fine lines and wrinkles
-Calendula – speed healing of minor blemishes, bring calm and balance bacteria
-Organic Aloe Leaf Juice – soothes irritation and inflammation, taking on the two main causes of skin redness

Happy To Be Natural Again

Happy To Be Natural Again

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When we moved this past summer, we did a huge purge of most of our things. Many of the things we discarded were our assortment of natural hair and skincare products. The only beauty products I packed were the items that were unopened. In other words, I’ve been using name brand products for my hair.

Get More from Your Cleansing Routine

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Growing up I never gave too much thought to the type of cleanser I used on my face. As long as my face was clean I was happy. However, as I got older I realized I needed more than clean skin. I wanted a product that refreshed, hydrated, and treated my skin to some beneficial ingredients.  I now have it all with Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

 

Founded in New Zealand, Snowberry is all about creating premium natural anti-aging skincare. Their products are designed to combat the effects of free radicals, dehydration, and discoloration, just to name of a few. Perhaps this is why they won the 2011 Discover Beauty Award at Cosmoprof USA.

One of my favorite aspects of the Snowberry skincare line is the fact their products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors, alcohols, or petrochemicals. Every product is also dermatologist tested, but not tested on animals. Snowberry is also the first skincare company in New Zealand to receive the carboNZeroCert™ certification. This means they have a low carbon footprint and strive to be a more environmentally sustainable company.

After reading about Snowberry, I was excited to try their Gentle Cleanse & Tone and Instant Deep Cleanser.

Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Toner

When you have sensitive, dry skin like I do, you want a cleanser that is gentle and doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. The Gentle Cleanse & Tone does exactly what its name says, cleanses and tones.

This is thanks to ingredients like:

  • Plant saponins from the nut of the soap tree
  • Kiwi fruit, kumquat and green pea protein extracts
  • Naturally humectant vegetable glycerin, vitamin E and oil from the Andiroba tree nut

Snowberry Gentle Remineralising Toner Swatch

Each time I use the Gentle Cleanse & Tone my skin always feels hydrated, replenished, and nice and smooth. I never have to worry about any skin irritation or that dry, tight sensation some cleansers cause.

 

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser

I also tested out the Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser. Known as “the supernatural cleanser and makeup remover,” by Snowberry insiders, this cleanser uses highly concentrated oils to cleanse and re-hydrate skin.

The cleanser features a blend of:

  • Macadamia nut oil
  • Indian neem oil
  • Inca Inchi oil
  • Lingonberry oil
  • Coenzyme Q10

Snowberry Instant Deep Cleanser Swatch

Even though the Instant Deep Cleanser is formulated with oils, it can be used on all skin types. It worked well on my dry skin. I only need a few pumps to remove all my makeup and get my skin nice and clean. But what I love most is how my skin feels after I use the product; soft and smooth. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes, which is especially nice when I need to remove my eye makeup.

After using the Snowberry Gentle Cleanse & Tone and the Instant Deep Cleanser, my skin is getting more from my cleansing routine. It no longer feels stripped of moisture or dulled after cleansing. Instead, my skin is soft and smooth and has a nice healthy glow.
