3 Tips to Combat Dry Summer Skin

Long travel days, warm temperatures, salty waters, and tanned skin. These are only a few of the things we love about summer. However great these might be, they can all wreak havoc on our skin. The heat and sun can often leave our skin feeling more dried out and duller than usual. Luckily, there are some easy ways to combat dry summer skin. From prepping your beauty routine with tons of SPF to taking the right steps after spending time in the sun, we’re sharing our top three tips to combat dry summer skin.

Always Wear SPF

This is the number one, non-negotiable rule for happy summer skin. Even if June Gloom is in full force with cloudy skies, wearing sunscreen is essential to achieving a healthy complexion. The days are longer and the sun is stronger, so soak in all the SPF you can find! If you get carried away at the beach and forget to reapply, soothe burnt skin with a nourishing treatment like the Sud Source Body Butter ($18). With pure plant oils, organic plant, flower, and root extracts, this rich formula conditions and calms the skin.

Protect Your Pout

We smell a summer romance! We’re talking about our love affair with lip balm. There’s nothing worse than chapped lips, but it’s hard to fight them off in the summer heat. To keep your lips kissable and fresh, use the On Board Organic Lip Balm ($5.45). It’s made with organic coconut oil, shea butter, aloe, beeswax, and vitamin E to hydrate, soothe, and prevent chapped lips. Additionally, the silky smooth balm adds a layer of shine to enhance and plump the appearance of your pout.

Boost With Hydration

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! This is imperative to preventing dry, cracked skin this season. Your skincare routine needs extra moisture in the hotter months, so it may be time to switch up the products you’re using on a daily basis. Facial oils are a great way to incorporate more hydrating treatments into your beauty routine. Start by using the Lau Botanicals Garden Nectar Serum ($108) each day. Its ingredients include a combination of amino acids, antioxidants, and fatty acids that boost cell turnover and enhance hydration levels. Your skin is going to love you for this!
