This year, summer is a little different with physical distancing required in most states and provinces. There are no festivals, events or summer gatherings to enjoy, and social get-togethers have seen a change; but one constant remains—the sun.
We may not be attending as many outdoor functions and patio parties, but this doesn’t mean you can skip the sunscreen or sun care for the skin. Even a cloudy, overcast day can give us sun damage, so a solid summer skin care ritual from head to toe is essential to keep skin soft, hydrated, glowing and protected.
To keep skin luminous through the summery days, Eminence Organic’s Mangosteen Collection is the perfect set of resurfacing and revitalizing products to keep handy. The unique Lactic Acid Complex found in several products in the collection helps keep skin refined, pores minimized and the complexion radiant.
The Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser is a fruity burst to start your day, cleansing the skin and gently buffing away dead skin cells. The Lactic Acid Complex containing a proprietary blend of lactic acid, ribose and red clover flower extract ensures gentle yet effective exfoliation, even for sensitive skin types. For an added boost of exfoliation, a few shakes of the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant provides extra grit from rice, oat flour and chickpea flour for a deeper clean. Follow the cleanse with a spritz of the Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist, infusing the skin with antioxidants from mangosteen, along with smoothing skin thanks to nutrient-rich ribose and red clover.
Switching to a lighter skin care routine is recommended, as the heavier, richer creams from winter is not needed for most of us unless you have extremely dry skin. The Mangosteen Gel Moisturizer is the perfect, dewy, creamy gel to matte moisturizer for summer that will keep skin hydrated for a photo-ready face.
Not forgetting the body, the Mangosteen Body Lotion also contains the Lactic Acid Complex to slough off dead skin cells and keep skin hydrated. The Lactic Acid Complex is gentle enough to use daily, so you don’t have to avoid the sunshine and can continue to reap the benefits of the resurfacing.
To prevent sun damage on skin for both the face and body, it’s important to have a protective sunscreen as part of your summer essential products line up. Mineral sunscreen has many benefits both for the body and the environment, including being less harmful to the ocean and its habitants, which is key if you’re making the most of beach days, boat trips and swimming in cool waters.
Mineral sunscreens protect our skin by creating a mirror-like barrier to reflect light off the skin. Eminence Organic’s Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Body Sunscreen SPF 30 is a must-have mineral sunscreen containing Zinc Oxide to naturally block UV rays, while the lilikoi (also known as passionfruit) and raspberry seed oil provides vitamin C and antioxidants to combat the visible signs of aging. Suitable for all skin types, aloe vera is added to the sunscreen to moisturize and soothe dry skin to counteract damage from time under the sun.
Having a summer skin care ritual can keep your complexion glowing and protected all summer while you enjoy activities outdoors. Now more than ever, it’s important to stay on top of your skin care routine and maintain healthy skin.
