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

Shave Less with These Subtle Changes

Summer is here and the weather is HOT! It is safe to assume, we have all taken our shorts, skirts, and bathing suits out of the closet. This also means adding the extra time during our shower to shave. No more pants or sweats to cover up that hair sadly! I have to admit that shaving is my least favorite part of summer. It only takes a few minutes but I loathe feeling like the smoothness of my legs isn’t lasting as long as I would like it to.

I see it asked a dozen different times in several mom groups I follow on Facebook, what skin care products should I get for my pre-teen? I then see another dozen different responses on what companies, which specific products worked for their child, why they didn’t like another recommendation provided, and the list goes on and on. But, let’s not make it any more complicated than we need to. Every skin type follows the basic principles when it comes to finding a routine that works best. Pre-teen skincare is no different.

Nutra Health Skincare

I’ve always had terrible skin. As a teenager, I suffered from painful acne and oily skin. As an adult, I cannot say that much has changed. Throughout the years, I have learned that certain products make my hormonal acne worse and I searched for skincare items that I could trust. I mainly fell upon washes and spot treatments that were made by individuals running Etsy shops that produced great products that featured essential oils. The only downside was that I was missing that prescription grade treatment, while maintaining Vegan, to really knock out my breakouts.

Simplify Your Skin Care Routine

Skin Care Routine 1

Does your bathroom counter or vanity, look like a cluttered mess?

Mine definitely used to, that is until I found a simple yet effective skincare routine. As an adult, we are so busy shuffling from one thing to another that we find ourselves with little time to devote to a healthy skin care routine. I must admit that even at the age of 25, I never really paid attention to my skin. I have semi-dry skin so the concern in regards to taking care of my skin just never came up.
