Hydrating your skin is one of the best ways to protect it from sun damage and make sure you're staying healthy. But with summer comes the hot and humid weather, which can make hydration even more difficult. Luckily, there are a few key ingredients that will give your skin the hydration boost it needs - below we discuss 5 summer skincare products worth giving a shot!
Natural and Organic Products for Summer Skin
If you’re looking for a way to keep your skin hydrated and feeling fresh, we recommend the following natural and organic products that are formulated with natural ingredients.
1. We formulate with all-natural ingredients that will hydrate, moisturize, and nourish your skin throughout the summer. With a focus on maintaining healthy moisture levels, SanBe's products are perfect for those who want to avoid harsh chemicals and irritants while still receiving effective results.
2. Stear clear from these ingredients; Fragrance, parabens, and synthetics these will cause more harm to your body over time without you even realizing it. Be aware and check your labels for harmful ingredients, this can easily be done with the EWG app.
3. Support local brands or small businesses. Big corporations tend to take shortcuts when it comes to ingredients and clean beauty products. They often use fillers to make a product cheaper by volume, which only benefits the company, not your skin or wallet.
Sesame and Apricot Kernel Oil for Ultra-Hydration
A lot of people are shy about using oils on their skin, but there are some natural oils that work wonders and are just as good for you as they are for your skin. One such oil is sesame and apricot kernel oil. The combination of these two ingredients creates an amazing moisturizer that’s easy to use, even for those who don’t want to take the time to deal with a more complicated skincare routine.
Both sesame and apricot kernel oil contain omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce skin water loss. Sesame oil has been shown to improve acne, while apricot kernel oil helps with aging skin. You can apply our body oil by simply adding a few drops into your moisturizer or serum or you can create a DIY face mask.
Mix together ½ teaspoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon honey, and one teaspoon of our body oil; then apply it evenly over your clean face and neck before leaving it on for 10 minutes while you relax or do whatever else you need to do. Rinse off when time's up and pat your face dry with a towel (don't rub).
Hyaluronic Acid Gel a High Content Skin Serum
One of the most important aspects of moisturizing is choosing a formula with high content. So, you want to make sure that it contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid and antioxidants when you are looking for a skin serum.
One of our favorite high-content serums is SanBe's Hyaluronic Acid Gel Serum because it includes ingredients like hyaluronic acid, willow bark extract, and vitamin E. It’s specifically designed to target both dry and dehydrated skin so it’ll provide your skin with the hydration it needs.
And if you’re looking for something really light, then we recommend using the lightweight Anti-Aging Turmeric facial moisturizer on top of your regular skincare routine.
After Sun Spray An Ultra-Lightweight Skin Restoring Spray
If you’ve just returned from a beach day or have been out in the sun for too long, it can take hours to get your skin back to its natural state. And while slathering on that heavy moisturizer might feel good, it can also leave you feeling sore and greasy. What you need is an ultra-lightweight spray that will rehydrate your skin instantly - enter after sun spray.
One of our favorites is SanBe's ultra-hydrating After Sun Spray. We promise it will soothe and restore thirsty skin by replenishing lost moisture and shielding against environmental aggressors (aka UV), thanks to a potent blend of almond oil, certified organic aloe vera juice, and vitamins C and E.
It's perfect if you want something that feels lightweight enough to use as an everyday moisturizer but is tough enough to handle extreme conditions like UV rays or heat stress. And at $20 for 100ml, it won't break the bank either!
