Holistic Skin Care for the Summer

The summer months can take a toll on our skin. From spending time outside in the sun to being exposed to all of the environmental toxins that hangout in smog. I change up my holistic skincare for summer to purify my skin and protect it from the harsh summer sun. My summer holistic skin care is super simple. I want to be able to maximise my time outside and it is hard to have a long routine 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 against environmental and age damage and revitalizes dull skin. The serum has marine algae (don’t worry you won’t smell like a fish) which protects against exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke and heavy metals. It also has green tea which has antioxidants to help fight free radicals, prevent oxidative stress, and protect skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage.

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

Sunscreen

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I go for a morning walks with my dog and baby. This is one of my favourite times of the day before it is so peaceful and acts as a walking meditation. Even though it is early morning, I still put sunscreen on myself and my baby (unless his skin is fully covered). It is important that you choose a non-toxic sunscreen because many of the sunscreens 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 me and my baby.

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 micropollutants. 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.
