6 Summer Essentials to Nourish Your Skin & Hair

Summertime calls for laying out in the sun, drinking something fruity, eating yummy food outdoors, and so much more. It's also time to start switching around some products in your beauty routine! We put together five of our favorite summertime essentials to nourish your skin and hair while enjoying that good sunshine. 


1. Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner 



If you haven't already heard... we have a new Be Gentle, Be Kind Superfoods flavor! Our new banana + coconut nourishing superfood duo is a hair MUST for the summer. The shampoo is essentially a juice cleanse for your hair that gently cleanses hair without stripping away natural oils. The conditioner is a creamy, smoothie textured conditioner that harnesses the power of antioxidant-rich fruits to support healthy looking hair and scalp. By harnessing the power of fruit and vegetable fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, this regimen will support the vibrancy of hair and is the perfect compliment to your summer wellness routine.


2. Body Exfoliator

African Botanics Marula Detoxifying Salt and Sugar Body Scrub is all you need and more to gently exfoliate the skin to create a great base for you to tan in the sun. Fortified with raw cane sugar, Kalahari, and Himalayan crystal salt, this exfoliator will give you silky smooth and clean skin for a real or faux tan for the summer while also increasing lymphatic and blood flow! 



3. Vitamin C serum



There's pretty much no way to ignore all the buzz about vitamin C. This essential vitamin has countless benefits, and one of the more well-known ones is how it improves the skin. Whether it's fine lines, dullness, texture, acne scars, etc., vitamin C has been a go-to in the skincare-mosphere. One of our favorite vitamin C products is this VOLITION Beauty Strawberry-C Brightening Serum. This little wonder worker harnesses the benefits of strawberry fruit and seed extract to brighten dull skin, rid the face of excess oil and detox the pores. It also contains kakadu plum and hyaluronic acid to reduce redness and keep the skin hydrated. 


4. Cooling Water



While we're obsessed with the Milk Makeup Cooling Water Stick for depuffing the eyes, we also love to use it in the summertime for a post-sun exposure soothing stick. After laying in the sun, nothing feels better than rubbing this under your eyes for the ultimate cooling and soothing sensation. 



5. Oil-Free Moisturizer 

Summertime is the best for many reasons, but definitely not if you're prone to having oily skin. You want to keep your skin hydrated - even in the summer - but how do you do that if you already have oily skin? One of our favorite solutions to this issue is the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright SPF 30 Skin Tone Correcting Oil-Free Moisturizer. Not only is this moisturizer amazing at correcting dark spots (which we tend to get more of in the summer) preventing dryness all while being oil-free, but it also has 30 SPF to protect your skin from the summer sun! 


6. Castor Oil 

Last but not least, 100% castor oil should absolutely be a summer beauty staple. People tend to wear less makeup in the summertime, so using our B. Well organic + cold-pressed 100% castor oil to promote eyelash and eyebrow fullness is the perfect way to harness your natural beauty. This baby is also a miracle worker for hydrating the skin and taming those annoying + frizzy flyaways!
