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 Sun and Earth Sunscreen and the Voyanics Raspberry Seed Face Oil. Tint and protect your face with a natural SPF30 that is made from all organic and cold-pressed oils, beeswax, and natural zinc oxide. Raspberry seed oil is an incredible oil that naturally contains UVB and UVA protection. We love to layer these two products for sun protection along with amazing skincare benefits.
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.
Whether you’re beachside or just soaking up the sun in the park, our hair often dries out due to sun exposure and or saltwater. The Natural Hair Oil by F. Miller Skincare is designed to protect, hydrate, and nourish. It is wonderful for all hair types and is designed to deliver conditioning nutrients deep into the hair follicle. If you happen to get a scalp sunburn (wear a hat!) this oil contains calendula oil, which will help to soothe and calm irritation and redness. For especially dry and damaged hair, apply this oil overnight for truly moisturizing hair treatment.
No Nasties Nail Polish
Nothing says summer like finally getting your toes out and putting on a beautiful nail polish. However, a lot of nail polishes can be bad for us and for the environment. Thankfully Sienna Byron Bay make the most beautiful shades that are vegan, cruelty-free, and free of all the nasties that are often found in polish. The shade Embrace is one of our favourite summer shades, as it adds a beautiful light sparkle to the nails. Another favourite is the shade Courage, which is a burnt orange shade that reminds us of terracotta pots in Spain. Both are stunning on every skin tone!
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 body, the Organic Body Oil from By Sarah will soothe and calm any redness and irritation. Both the organic evening primrose oil and vitamin E within this product help to reduce inflammation and prevent damage caused by UV rays.
The Miracle Oil by Wild Source Apothecary is called a miracle for a reason. It is incredibly potent and rich in fatty acids – perfect for calming burned skin. This oil contains rosehip oil, which is one of my favorite ingredients for speeding up healing. Expect glowing and hydrated skin thanks to the gorgeous blend of vitamin E, rosehip, thistle, and geranium.
