The August heat is finally here, and with it comes all of the seasonal skin concerns such as dryness, symptoms from sun over-exposure, as well as other environmental factors. Combatting these issues may seem daunting, but with the power of vital plant-based nutrients, you activate your best line of defense and promote healthy, glowing skin in the process. Read on for our I-N round-up on must have additions to your summer regimen.
Step 1: Start with an Anti-aging Duo
Our first pick is our Vitalisea™ Time Traveler™ Serum. This silky serum is the next best thing to time traveling. Rich in marine bioactives such as sea daffodil, red seaweed and sea fennel, it works as an excellent plant-based alternative to traditional retinol products. Not only does this formula target dark spots, it also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful, natural glow. Next, add vital hydration back into your skin with our iconic Liquid Green™ Face Oil. Packed with nutrients from a blend of pure argan, blue tansy, açai and active essential oils, it's just what the skin needs.
Step 2: Add Vitamin C
Delivering a potent dose of vitamin C can be beneficial not just for our skin, but for our overall health. Our Re:generative™ Super Power C Serum works to brighten and tighten, while also boosting cell turnover and collagen production, leaving skin smoother, softer, and firmer than before. Our proprietary blend of edelweiss, coneflower, pennywort (and of course the powerhouse vitamin C) works wonders.
Step 3: Create a Barrier for the Under-eyes
An often overlooked area, the under-eyes can quickly fall victim to the dry heat and become prone to wrinkles and crows feet. To combat this, our Liquid Green® Revival Eye Whip works as a light and fluffy barrier to protect this delicate skin area while locking in hydration. The unique combination of our certified organic, proprietary Intelli-Seed® Antioxidant oil complex, poppy seed, marine lavender and buckwheat wax makes for an extremely nutrient-dense formula.
Step 4: Hydrate After Sun Exposure
Post sun exposure is the perfect time to re-hydrate the skin, as well as deliver plant nutrients with our fan favorite Liquid Green™ Body Oil. Powered by Intelli-Seed™ science, our antioxidant powerhouse Liquid Green Body Oil protects as it intensely moisturizes with a lightweight, silky, powdery feel. Never greasy, it immediately sinks in and leaves skin soft and satiated in a beautiful youthful glow.
Step 5: Don't Forget the Hands!
Something that may tend to be overlooked is the importance of replenishing the hydration in our hands. We use them so often, and yet they rarely enjoy a pampering. Our OneBody® Hand Balm brings together the benefits of marine bioactives, while also delivering a blend of bergamot, sweet orange, clove bud, nutmeg, benzoin siam and ylang ylang to rejuvenate both skin and senses.
