Hello my NC beauties…
This week, I started the BIG task of spring-cleaning. I’m sure you know the drill: clean your home from floor to ceiling, open the windows to let in the fresh air, and switch out your heavy winter wardrobe for lighter springtime wear.
Like the rest of your body, your skin needs season-specific protection from the elements. The dry, cold winter weather has different effects on your skin than the humidity and sun in the summer. For this reason, we suggest making small adjustments to your skin care regimen as a new season begins.
Here are my top springtime suggestions to keep your skin and locks looking great…
Cleanse and Exfoliate: Exfoliating regularly helps you free your skin of that dry, rough layer that developed over the winter. Avoid scrubs with large crystals! Instead use a hydrating Sugar Body Scrub made of fine sugar grains for frequent exfoliation. We add our exclusive blend of Coconut, Jojoba, Sesame and Rosehip Seed Essential oils, combined with granules of fine sugar that leaves your skin super soft.
Spritz your Mist: Face mists are fantastic pick-me-ups year round, but in summer’s scorching heat, a quick spritz becomes even more appreciated. Made from 100% pure certified organic Holy Basil, make it a fantastic toner for all skin types. Available in a travel friendly size, our Calming Facial Mist is perfect to pack in your bag for the beach or park. Holy Basil’s hidden superpower is it’s calming effect on our nervous system and people suffering from anxiety will benefit from frequent use of Holy Basil mist.
Quench your Skin: After all that winter dry air, you need to rebuild your skin and replenish all that lost moisture. Adopt products that double as a moisturizer and a skin protectant. Our richly textured, certified organic Shea Butter is blended with Organic Coconut Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil and Vitamin E to create the most luxurious treatment for your body. 100% all natural, this Shea Butter provides relief from everything to dry, sensitive skin to minor dermatological issues, such as sunburn and eczema. Essential vitamins and fatty acids found in Shea Butter, crucial to rejuvenating and moisturizing, work quickly to protect, nourish and soothe your skin.
After Sun: After a day at the beach you can’t undo the sun damage, but you can help your skin out. If you’re looking for nature’s healer look no further! Natura Culina’s Pure Aloe Vera After Sun Skincare is formulated with lavender and vanilla essential oil to heal and hydrate your skin after extended sun exposure. Not just for sunburns, apply Pure Aloe Vera After Sun Skincare to soothe and cool inflamed skin and even relieve itchy bug bites or apply it on daily base before your body lotion or butter for deeper hydration of your skin. One of Aloe Vera’s great powers is its ability to increase collagen production resulting in more youthful looking skin.
Keeping Your Locks Lovely: Depending on your hair type, you might find your hair is limp, frizzy, or difficult to control as the weather warms up. Summer conditions such as wind, salt water and humidity can make it tough to keep hair looking good. We developed a lightweight and nourishing, Hair and Scalp treatment that is infused with Ylang Ylang essential oil. For centuries, this highly effective oil has been used as a hair conditioner and a remedy for hair growth. We added Mint essential oil to help stimulate circulation for your scalp. Antioxidant rich Moroccan Oil and Black Cumin Seed Oil are blended to hydrate and heal dry hair. This is a good one to keep in your beach bag and use to tame those flyaways!
