Holistic Skin Care for the Summer

The summer months can take a toll on our skin. Time spent outside in the sun and exposure to environmental toxins that hang out in the smog make protecting our skin even more critical. 

To purify my skin and protect it from the harsh summer sun,  I change up my holistic skin care routine, while keeping it super simple. I want to maximise my time outside and it is impossible to spend a long time getting ready when your baby is trying to climb into the toilet.

Morning Holistic Skin Care

After splashing water on my face in the morning, I like to use Derma e Purifying Youth Serum from Goodness Me!. It shields my skin from environmental toxins, age damage, and revitalizes dull skin. The serum uses marine algae. Don’t worry, you won’t smell like a fish! But you will add protection against exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke and heavy metals. It also uses green tea antioxidants which helps fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress, and protect skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage.

Sunscreen

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I go for early morning walks with my dog and baby. This is one of my favourite times of the day because it is so peaceful and works as a walking meditation. Even though it is early, I still lather sunscreen on my baby (if his skin is not fully covered) and myself. It is important to choose a non-toxic sunscreen because many of the brands you find at the drug store contain ingredients that are hormone disruptors and can cause damage to the skin. I have a whole post with sunscreen reviews that you can read.

Right now I’m using Think Baby because it is great for both baby and me.

Evening Holistic Skin Care

After my shower (yeah I’m a shower at night kinda girl), I use Derma e Purifying Oil-Free Moisturizer. It is a lightweight moisturizer that detoxifies the skin while shielding it against harmful micro-pollutants. It contains activated charcoal, which is known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities. Activated charcoal helps to remove the toxins that have accumulated on your face during the day. It comes out of the bottle black but quickly absorbs.

You can buy it online at GoodnessMe! if you are in Canada.

On nights when I get too much sun during the day, I like to apply my DIY Refreshing Summer Face Oil. It contains basil essential oil which is good for congested skin. Coincidentally as this is a summertime oil, is also good for insect bites. Sweating can cause acne and congestion so this oil is a great fit for the summer. Get the recipe here.
