The Summer Skin Collection is here! So is summer and we are headed to the beach, the lake, the pool…anywhere there is a body of water to play in. We love summer! However, summer is a veritable onslaught of heat, pollution, chlorine, water, sun and salt — all of which can damage skin and cause unsightly problems. One Love Organics' developed their Summer Skin Limited Edition Collection to address the most common summer skin concerns to keep skin clear and radiant all summer long.
Gardenia Daily Body Serum, $39
Lazy summer days at the beach, by the pool or in the garden can lead to parched, dull skin. Apply Gardenia Daily Body Serum immediately after each shower or bath to help to keep skin smooth, hydrated and beautifully scented all summer long.This convenient spray on body oil dissolves into skin within mere seconds thanks to its fine mist spray applicator and lightweight, non-sticky/greasy formula. Bonus: the beautiful gardenia aroma is all natural, amazing and is simply not to be missed!
Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder, $12
If there’s ever a time for shiny, vibrant, luscious hair, it’s summer. But precious locks may actually take a serious hit during the summer months. Sun, water, heat and chlorine can be damaging, leading to faded color, split ends and a brittle, dry texture. Hair color is such an investment; they recommend that you wet your hair before sunning or swimming and coat hair with a small amount of oil or balm to create an emollient barrier to help protect strands. Finally, they recommend washing as infrequently as possible during the summer months, using Healthy Locks Powder to freshen hair between shampoos. Their unique formula featuring silica rich bamboo extract leaves hair feeling soft, refreshed and beautifully scented and promotes hair and scalp health.
Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist, $28
100% pure fruit water extracted from the heart of organic pink grapefruits, Pretty Pores Mist is purifying, naturally astringent and offers the antioxidant power of Vitamin C to energize skin for a healthy summer glow. This material was made fresh for One Love Organics and they cannot get another batch until next summer! The mist has a very faint aroma of fresh grapefruit and it infuses the skin with valuable plant nutrients such as bioavailable vitamins, antioxidants, trace elements and mineral salts found naturally in the fruit. With a natural pH of 4.9, Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist is perfect for spritzing the skin post cleansing to help skin return to its natural acidic state and to infuse the skin with nutrients before moisture application. It is best for oily, blemish-prone and combination skin.
Apple a Day Brightening Facial Cleanser, $29
Typically, hot summer weather means that the skin may produce excess oil that can leave the skin shiny and prone to breakouts. This cleanser is an in-house OLO favorite! It has a beautiful and all natural aroma of freshly cut green apples and a fluffy foaming lather. To help prevent excess oil and breakouts, they recommend a cleanser with a gentle blend of acids to help break down oil and impurities, leaving pores clean and unclogged. Using a cleanser with aggressive acids, particularly in the summer, can contribute to accelerated sun damage, so be sure and use a cleanser that has a low, not high, concentration of acids. Apple a Day Brightening Facial Cleanser has a pH of 5.3 and contains a low percentage of malic, glycolic and lactic acids for a product that is effective over time but is not too harsh or drying.
