FEELING FRIED? Exposure to UV rays are the leading cause of premature aging and signs of sun damage, like sun spots, sunburn and uneven skin tone. Soothing botanicals, highly-effective organic ingredients, and antioxidant-rich skincare can restore your skin to a beautifully soft state.
Transitions between seasons can be exciting, but they can also cause stress on your body and mental state. When you nourish your skin, you also nourish your soul. Turn your attention inward: What is it that needs a bit of pampering? Follow our fall reset ritual below to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
Renewed in Mind
- Set the Mood:
Set yourself up for a long, candlelit bath, complete with your favorite novel and a tranquil playlist. Find yourself transported to a glorious luxury spa. This time is for you, with no distractions or demands. Take a long, slow breath and feel the sense of calm that you invoke by simply caring for yourself.
- Draw a Luscious Bath:
Ease your body into warm waters infused with moisturizing oil to soothe tired, sun-soaked skin. Drop in a bath truffle or salts, and as the waters pull impurities out of the body, imagine all your troubles floating away.
- Gently Cleanse:
After intense sun, avoid harsh exfoliators and opt for a hydrating, yet active body wash. Coat your neck, chest, and arms and leave on your skin for 1-2 minutes. While the active ingredients work their magic, shift your energy back to your breath and close your eyes. As you cleanse away dirt and impurities, imagine rinsing away any stress and negativity from your day.
- Hydrate and Heal:
Open your eyes and greet this brand new moment. After your bathing ritual, and while skin is still damp, seal in moisture from the water with a skin-calming lotion or oil. To prevent peeling, pay special attention to areas affected by the sun, and feel instantly renewed.
The Sun Saviors
- Cashmere Body Oil:
Forgot your SPF? Too much fun in the sun can leave skin craving antioxidants like Vitamin E to protect it from free radicals. The cure-all for inflammation and irritated skin? Organic passionflower, which is rich in the essential vitamins your skin needs to heal.
- Probiotic Lotion:
Probiotics aren’t just found in fermented foods like yogurt and sauerkraut. Peptide-rich probiotics are perfect for slathering on your body for skin that appears more refined, even and smooth after months in the sun.
- Concreta Reparative Balm:
Although we try to avoid peeling with all our power, it happens. Intensively moisturizing shea butter will quickly restore any signs of harsh dryness and our favorite little ingredient, paracress plant extract, will firm and plump the skin.
- MANDARIN Attar:
Keep your energy bright, your mood joyful, and your spirit warm as you transition to fall with a splash of citrus.
