Keeping Your Natural Summer Glow With Vintner’s Daughter
Today we are re-sharing an article by Vintner’s Daughter, in order to help you protect your summer skin! As we head into fall, here in the northern hemisphere, we want to protect our skin from the cooler elements that are to come and maintain our gorgeous summer glows!
Build The Skin Barrier
In the heat of summer, a healthy and hydrated skin barrier is vital. Skin dehydration actually interrupts proper barrier function, and we formulated Active Treatment Essence with this in mind. Along with hydrating hyaluronic acid for extra plumping and luminosity, pre and probiotics, alfalfa, marine algae, and a full-suite of B vitamins, including the niacinamide form of B3, help to fortify the skin’s first line of defense. Grape seed, a powerful foundational oil found in Active Botanical Serum is one of many ingredients rich in phytoceramides, which aid in collagen production and maintain a strong lipid barrier to effectively retain moisture.
Up The Antioxidants
More time enjoyed outside also means extra exposure to environmental aggressors like UV and pollution. The natural protectors in Active Botanical Serum, such as carrot seed oil rich in the antioxidant vitamin A (as beta carotene), rosehip, and turmeric shield the complexion and repair oxidative damage.
Clear Out Congestion
Time to breathe and just be is a highlight of summer, and the skin similarly needs to breathe to look its best. Ensuring pores are properly cleared of excess sunscreen or sweat buildup keeps unwanted skin issues, like breakouts, at bay. Skin detoxifying whole greens, including dandelion, nettle, alfalfa, and moringa, are part of the Active Treatment Essence infusion, while natural acids and enzymes, gentle but effective micro-exfoliators, clear out pores. The organic hazelnut oil in Active Botanical Serum is a key source of linoleic acid, to balance skin and prevent clogged pores.
Protect The Décolleté
The delicate skin of your face starts lower than you may think. The neck and décolleté are equally prone to sun spots, dehydration, and dullness if not properly protected. Be sure to apply your Vintner’s Daughter products, and of course your sunscreen, to the neck and chest along with the face for dewy and radiant summer skin.
