Whether you’re soaking up the sun in your yard or spending days at the pool, your skin is likely getting more sun exposure this time of year. While we may be after a sun-kissed glow, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Here are five cruelty-free skin care products to keep it healthy and glowing all summer long.
Acne can pop up any time, but it can be even more common during sweatier months. That’s why it’s important to remove makeup and relieve skin of impurities at the end of each summer day. The Rebalance Gentle Purifying Cleanser with salicylic acid is perfect for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin types. This gentle foaming gel cleanser deeply cleanses pores and clarifies the skin. If you have dry or sensitive skin, check out the Luminous Nutrient-Rich Cleansing Balm. It’s another great option for melting away dirt, oil and makeup.
To keep skin glowing and hydrated during summer, you’ll want to exfoliate often. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that can make your other skin care products less effective. The Polish Lemon Sugar Body Scrub uses a gentle blend of sugar, salt and a multi-fruit complex to help lift impurities from the skin’s surface. After a two-week user test, 96% of users said their skin felt exfoliated with decreased skin roughness thanks to this gem.
A body butter is the best way to follow an exfoliant. This 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner moisturizes and nourishes. But the real reason it outshines the rest (besides its amazing scent) is its superfruit complex. This blend of anti-oxidants not only smooths and softens the skin, it makes skin look firmer too (goodbye, cellulite!). It’s also great for soothing sunburns and works as mosquito repellent because of the natural citrus oils. Read Allure’s raving review of Lavish here.
Not only does wearing SPF on your face protect you from sunburn today, it helps prevent visible signs of aging caused by sun exposure. Turn to a tinted moisturizer during the summer to protect skin AND to prime skin before makeup. This one features chemical-free sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 32 protection. It’s also infused with a form of Vitamin C that helps smooth the appearance of expression lines and visibly brighten the skin tone.
No summer skin care products roundup is complete without an all-over sunscreen. This chemical-free option by Pacifica has a light coconut scent and is easy to apply. It’s also formulated to keep skin hydrated while providing sun protection. Some of my other favorite clean sunscreen brands are Juice Beauty, Alba Botanica and Goddess Garden.
