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

Confession: I’m not much for the gym on a day-to-day basis. More often than not, my intentions to complete a workout have fallen flat before I’ve even stepped towards my sneakers! That being said, I do get myself up and out for the occasional exercise–and when I do, I like to be ready for the aftermath.
