Did all that fun in the sun zap your skin and leave you with flaky, itchy, red or even inflamed skin? If you have dry, sensitive skin, your skin’s own natural protective barrier might be compromised. Hint – that’s why dry skin and sensitive skin often go hand-in-hand — when your protective barrier is compromised, the skin gets weakened and irritated more easily.
To care for post-summer sensitive skin, we recommend a simple ritual to help restore moisture and strengthen the skin’s own natural protective barrier.
Keep skin clean and pore-clogging surface debris scarce by washing twice a day (any more can be too much for sensitive skin). Choose a mild cleanser and be gentle, rinsing thoroughly with lukewarm water. We recommend Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser for combination/blemish prone skin and Vitamin B Cleansing Oil for dry, dull complexions.
When your skin is lacking moisture, its protective barrier gets weaker, which means skin can start to look dull, flaky and the appearance of fine lines are noticeably more noticeable. By keeping it well moisturized twice daily, you’re setting yourself up for smoother, glowier skin in the long run. We recommend our Vitamin C Facial Serum – its plant-based formula packs a serious punch and it’s crazy dewifying AND smoothing and hydrating.
Face mists are best as on-the-go hydrators, spritzed on whenever your skin feels uncomfortable or tight during the day—or you just feel like you need a pick-me-up. And it’s great for all skin types!
Most of us have been taught to moisturize our skin, when in fact we need to hydrate and moisturize. This is where an antioxidant rich cream can help hydrate skin, while locking in moisture. Our Skin Dew Coconut Water Cream is a clinically proven complex made of acacia, jojoba, and sunflower that forms a smooth, breathable film to help skin hold water and protect against dehydration.
In addition, this formula is made from more than 50% coconut water, which helps to provide the extra moisture your skin may be missing. A winning combination of hydration and moisture to promote balanced, moisture-rich, healthy-looking skin.
