Is Your Skin Ready For Summer?

There are three skin care actions to take no matter what the temperature is outside – exfoliate, moisturize and block UV rays. Just like during winter, taking care of your skin is a priority in the summer season.  When outdoor air is hot and humid you can develop dry, dehydrated, irritated skin. The biggest culprits are spending time in the sun, environment/pollution, swimming pool, and air-conditioning.

 

When it comes to caring for your skin, temperature matters. Increase in temperatures during the summer months, combined with humidity and heat, can increase the activity of the sebaceous glands. This makes oily skin appear oilier and dry skin appear rough and patchy.  Ingredients in your skin care products matter too. Products containing shea butter can help protect the skin from UV sunlight and harsh temperatures.

 

Hot temperatures in summer require exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting the skin. Sweat and skin oils can clog pores. Products containing sugar cane extract can keep pores open and help eliminate blemishes. Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers. Moisturizing with a hydrating, water-based body cream can help provide long-hasting hydration.

 

Make water your best friend. Keep yourself hydrated from the inside out and apply moisturizer to keep yourself hydrated from the outside in.Shower and shampoo immediately after getting out of the swimming pool, using fresh, clean water and a natural, mild cleanser and exfoliate.  After exfoliating, moisturize and apply sun screen.  I know this sounds repetitive but it’s this repetition of exfoliating, moisturizing and applying SPF that will keep your skin healthy and glowing through the summer months.

 

If your skin burns, DNA in your skin cells have been damaged. Apply 30-50 SPF sunscreen with a broad ultraviolet spectrum. This will defend your skin from sun damage for approximately two hours. After that, sunscreen should be reapplied. If you are swimming or sweating a lot, apply more often.

 

Summer means that you should ease up on the makeup. Wear minimal facial makeup to allow the skin to breathe better. Humidity and heat suppress the skin’s ability to breathe and stresses it out. Avoid anything heavy on the face. Use a matte day cream, tinted moisturizer, a vegan lip treatment, tinted lip balm, and protective eyewear this summer to give your skin some rest.

 

What we eat has a lot to do with how we look and feel.  Go for seasonal fruits, vegetables and natural juices to feel fresh and stay away from sugary drinks.

 

Wearing loose, natural-fiber clothing and a hat during summer will protect your skin as well. Lastly. . .

 

. . . Have a great summer!

Unleash Your Skin Care Superpower

While the Avengers demonstrate their superpowers on the silver screen you can unleash your skin care superpower by blasting away the negative effects of aging, dry skin, and inflammation. Iron Man’s protective suit of armor automatically wraps itself around him. Try a natural hydrating body cream to form a protective barrier on your skin trapping moisture in, keeping your skin soft and supple. Don’t let dry, aging skin destroy your look!

 

In Avengers movies accidental exposure to gamma radiation transforms a mild-mannered scientist into the super strong, green-skinned Hulk. You can brighten your skin and add a beautiful glow with a vegan cellular face cream containing lemon and orange extract. Sugar cane extract protects skin from toxins. Green tea extract won’t turn your skin green. But it will help protect your skin from free radicals and promote healthy collagen production.

 

Hulk’s ability to heal any wounds makes him immortal. He won’t face aging concerns, but we will. Super natural skin care ingredients can fend off the signs of aging while sleeping. Choose vegan cell renewal night cream to save your skin and our planet too. Vitamin rich shea butter is a strong anti-aging moisturizer. Marine based Hyadisine®smooths skin, moisturizes and reduces wrinkles. Cucumber seed extract combats fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Wasp is a female super hero in the Avengers movies. She is fun-loving, fashion focused and fierce. Her superpower comes from her hands and an ability to shrink or grow in size. She harnesses her body’s bio energy to project yellow electrical blasts or “stingers” from her hands. You can protect, repair and soothe your hands with a luxe vegan hand cream. Super oils including olive, jojoba, coconut, aloe vera, evening primrose and mastic essential oils along with plant-based extracts keep your hands looking and feeling sensational as you take on the day.

 

No matter what her size, Wasp won’t let her pretty lips get chapped, thin and flat. She need not settle for anything less than a revolutionary vegan lip elixir that plumps and softens lips naturally. Her love interest, Yellow Jacket, may like it too.

 

With his strong-man muscles and flowing blonde hair, Thor is the god of thunder who can fly and control the weather. He distrusts technology, has great stamina and can breathe anywhere, even in outer space. Applying natural ingredients that work with the skin allow it to “breathe” and reap maximum benefits from vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Don’t accept defeat, smash old habits. Avoid suffocating your skin.

 

Super ingredients in YASOU skin care penetrate, moisturize, restore elasticity, and support cellular renewal. Each of the original Avenger super heroes rely on their superpowers to save the universe but they are also everyday people. We love this sentiment expressed in an article by writer Alex Abad-Santos for Vox on the final Avengers movie, Endgame:

 

“Directors Anthony and Joe Russo … understand that the ‘best’ doesn’t just mean the strongest, fastest, smartest, or more powerful. The ‘best’ also applies to heroes’ spirits and souls; at the end of the day, when the world is crashing down, they are going to show us how refusing to give up, powers or no powers, makes us, well, super.”
