The summertime is one of the most beautiful times of the year for enjoying a slower pace of life, longer daylight hours, and more moments spent outdoors. Yet at the same time, elements such as heat, humidity, and sun exposure can take a harsh toll on the skin.
So how can one enjoy all of the pleasures of summer without compromising a healthy complexion? Here, we like to advocate for a simple and supportive approach. To help you strike just the right balance, we have a few suggestions.
Here are our favorite tips for perfecting your summer skincare with Organic Et Moi:
Tip #1: Become a skincare minimalist
Whether your summer plans consist of trips to the seaside, the countryside, or a holiday getaway, you may find that you have less time to perform a lengthy skincare routine. Additionally, you may prefer to apply fewer products, as extra layers can cause the skin to feel heavy or sticky.
The summer is a perfect time to pare down your routine a bit. However, rather than skipping skincare altogether, a better solution is to focus on just a few quality products designed to support the skin’s hydration and overall health. For example, an antioxidant serum and SPF for the morning, followed by a gentle cleanser and a nourishing moisturizer at night.
Tip #2: Prioritize sun care
Although many of us love to spend time in the sun, too much exposure to the elements can be harmful for your skin, causing conditions such as excess redness, dark spots, irritation, discoloration, and signs of aging. To safeguard your skin from damage and prevent a risk of skin cancer, it will be essential to apply sun care during daylight hours.
Experts recommend using an SPF product of 30 or more, and reapplying about every two hours throughout the day. If your skin is sensitive you may also find it helpful to wear extra coverage, such as a sun hat, sunglasses, or light layers of protective clothing.
Tip #3: Curate intentional everyday rituals
To ensure that you maintain good skin health during summer, you might also consider adding small sensory touches to your daily practices, so that they feel like a special ritual rather than a routine.
Brewing a cup of your favorite herbal tea while you take off your makeup, or opening the windows to let in the light of sunrise while you apply your morning products are just a few easy ways to infuse a little inspiration and remain committed to self care.
Tip #4: Choose products that are sustainable, natural, and organic
At Organic Et Moi, we believe that when it comes to your skin health and wellness, details matter. For helping you design a skincare practice that is simple, healthful, and good for the planet as well, our products use only natural materials that are eco-friendly, zero-waste, and easy to use.
With that in mind, two products we love for summer are our reusable remover cotton pads, which are crafted locally in France using organic bamboo fabric. We are also excited to feature high-quality clothing items such as our organic tank top which was created in Europe and is the perfect lightweight accessory for warmer months.
One Last Word Before You Go
However you choose to spend your summer, the most important thing is to appreciate the beauty of nature, and be in the moment, while enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation. We invite you to experience life’s simple pleasures with Organic Et Moi, and wish you a season filled with health and happiness.
