Our Natural & Organic Summer Beauty Essentials
We at REV take a pretty minimal approach to our beauty routines, opting to select a few high quality organic beauty products to treat our skin across all seasons. However, there are a few items that we like to switch around or add into our beauty routines as the weather warms up and we are able to enjoy the sunshine. Here our are favourite natural and organic beauty products for summer time.
Keeping your skin protected from the sun and environmental stressors is essential year-round, but especially during the summer when the sun is stronger, and we spend more time outdoors (even if it is just in our gardens). Keep your skin safe and healthy with both the Living Libations Everybody Loves the Sunshine Zinc Lotion and the Everybody Loves Sunshine Oil. The zinc lotion is one of the best sunscreens on the market, because it doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals. Instead it uses 20% non-nanoparticle uncoated zinc oxide alongside sun-loving essences distilled from plants that evolved to grow best in full sun. The oil is our Content Managers all time favorite for early morning sun and late afternoon sun. It is filled with sun harmonizing botanicals that naturally protects the skin.
You don’t have to sit out and tan to look like a golden summer goddess. Thanks to Kjaer Weis, you can fake that summer glow. Their cream duos are fantastic for achieving a more bronzed, rosy, and highlighted look. The Sunlit Glow Organic Flush and Glow is perfect for bronzing light to medium skin tones or highlighting darker skin tones. It also contains the most gorgeous blush, that looks beautiful on all skin tones.
To tie the look together, apply Soft Lip Pencil, which is a soft-pinky beige shade that adds definition but looks effortless on lips. The perfect glowy look that will trick everyone into thinking you’ve spent the day out in the sun. The best part of Kjaer Weiss is that all of their products contain potent, organic skincare ingredients that feed the skin hydration, antioxidants, and omegas while you’re sporting a beautiful makeup look.
Sunburns are never fun, and we should do our best to avoid them at all costs. Whether that is avoiding the sun when it is at its strongest, making sure to wear a natural SPF, and always wearing a hat. However, we understand mistakes happen, so it is key to have products on hand to help calm and soothe painful burns. For the face the best remedy is the Biodynamic Summer Solstice Serum by Be Here Farm + Nature because it is full of anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients. From calendula to chamomile to yellow dock – this potent oil will instantly calm irritated or sunburnt skin.
For sun burns of the body, the Vertly Californian Bloom Body Oil is one of our favorites. like the Summer Solstice Serum, this oil is full of calendula and chamomile to soothe and nourish the skin. It is also infused with full spectrum hemp oil, which is ultra hydrating but easily absorbed into the skin. This body oil will deeply hydrate without leaving any greasy residue.
