Sun Protection Tips That Aren't a Hat or Sunscreen

While the sun isn’t bad for you, too much of it can be damaging to your skin. Leathery skin texture, sun burn, extra wrinkles and in extreme cases, skin cancer can all develop from too much sun exposure. But as long as you stay within the amount of sun time that you know works for your skin, the sun can actually be a nourishing and productive addition to your self and skincare routine. But what about when you want to be out in the sun for longer periods of time? And do you always need to wear sunscreen or a hat?

Skincare: Prevention vs Healing

When it comes to skincare, there are often two ways of looking at it: prevention and healing. You can either prevent further damage from happening, or heal existing damage the skin has already sustained. Products can be marketed and formulated for one of these two purposes, and customers have to choose which one is right for them. While technically there’s nothing wrong with this approach, there is a possibility you could find yourself in a situation where you want or need to both prevent damage in your skin and also heal existing damage. The question is: is it possible to do?

Dry Skin Brush For Extra Softness

Silky soft skin is a hallmark of a healthy complexion, and with the height of spring time right around the corner there’s never been a better time to revamp your smooth skin routine. While many people think the buck stops at daily lotion applications, we’re here to tell you that it definitely does not! Everything from the quality of your diet to how much water you drink plays a role in the overall smoothness of your skin, and one of our favorite ways to make sure everything is silky smooth and glowing is to dry skin brush.

How To Re-Hydrate Your Skin

It might sound strange, but there is a difference between skin that is moisturized and skin that is hydrated. And yes, both are very important for the overall health of your skin. Though it might feel and sound counterintuitive, a skincare product advertised as moisturizing isn’t necessarily also hydrating. Likewise, a product that focuses on hydrating your skin might not deliver the most ideal level of moisture. So, what exactly is the difference between moisture and hydration? And how can you make sure your skin is getting enough of both?

DIY Moisture Intensive Cream

Sometimes a moisturizer just doesn’t cut it. No matter how many times you slather on the lotion, your skin still feels like it’s parched, cracked, itchy and sad! Part of the reason a lot of store bought moisturizers don’t work is that their base is actually water. While water is great and we all need it, topically, it does not deliver moisture to skin. On the contrary, it can actually dehydrate it! Water based moisturizers don’t make sense. What do? Rich, healing and hydrating plant oils do. The more essential fatty acids you can get into your moisturizing approach, the better. That’s because they’re the ones doing the moisturizing! And the best way to ensure that you know exactly what’s going into and onto your skin, is to make it yourself. With this easy to make moisture intensive cream featuring the moisturizing powerhouse of raw African Shea butter, you’ll barely notice it took any effort, and you will notice the difference in your skin!
