Summer is coming! Yes, it will be here before we know it so it's time to prepare our skin. That's why we've gathered 7 Hacks for Glowing Skin on the blog for you, just in time for summer. These are a few things you can do now to ensure your skin is at its best come time to slather on the sunscreen and put on a swimsuit.
Treat Acne and Tone Your Skin with Lemon Juice
The last thing you’ll want, come time to soak up the sun, is acne. One of our hacks for treating acne is lemon juice. A lot of people choose to apply lemon juice overnight, incorporating it into their nightly face-washing routine. If you have sensitive skin you may not want to leave the lemon juice on overnight. Instead, try applying it with a Q-tip or cotton swab right after you wash your face in the morning.
Clearer Complexion with Advanced Correcting Serum
Summertime means less makeup and more sunscreen. Now is when you should begin treating your skin to shrink pores and even out your complexion. We suggest using the Advanced Correcting Serum, an all in one anti-aging power serum designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, fade sun spots, and correct uneven skin texture that occurs from UV damage. You can use this serum twice a day – once in the morning and once at night after you’ve washed and dried your skin. To see maximum results be sure to use an SPF 30 sunscreen during the day.
Moisturize and Reduce Inflammation with Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is most often associated with painful sunburns, but it is also a great natural solution for your skin. When taken internally Aloe Vera helps a myriad of digestive problems and skin issue. When applied topically, aloe can be used to moisturize your skin, help minimize inflammation of the face and neck, and reduce signs of aging. Bonus hack: Use Aloe Vera when you get an insect bite this summer to treat redness and irritation.
Diminish Dark Circles and Wrinkles with Bright Eye Booster
If you’re experiencing puffiness or dark circles under your eyes, you need Bright Eye Booster. In six minutes or less, dark circles diminish, wrinkles are reduced, skin is left toned and perfectly moisturized. This eye booster is perfect all year round but will come in handy when traveling this summer. Bright Eye Booster can be applied both under and over your makeup and used multiple times a day.
Treat and Tone Your Skin with Tea Bags
Tea is not just for drinking! After you’ve finished a cup of tea there are a variety of ways to reuse the teabag to treat your skin. Have a green tea bag? Use a cotton swab to soak up the remaining juices and apply to your face as a toner. The combination of cold tea bags and Aloe Vera can provide relief from a sunburn. How’s that for a dynamic duo? You can also use the Bright Eye Booster, which contains caffeine, to reduce puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles. Bonus: Chamomile Tea is a great remedy for eczema as is Bump 2 Baby, which is also safe for pregnant or nursing women.
Say Goodbye to Cellulite with Sugar Shrink Body Scrub
It’s time to start prepping for your first spray tan of the summer. Yes, even though it will be summer you should still consider a spray tan. Why? Because too much exposure to UV Rays (the sun) is bad for your skin, and a faux glow is a perfect alternative. Before your spray tan, you’ll need to exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells. During a bath or shower, scoop a small amount of the scrub into your hands and gently rub on your skin in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly, then pat skin dry. This will not only leave your skin feeling silky smooth, it will reduce the appearance of cellulite and even extend the life of your spray tan. Sugar Shrink Body Scrub can also be used pre, and post pool day to rehydrate your skin.
No More Pimple Panics with Toothpaste
Using toothpaste to treat a pimple as soon as it appears, or shortly after, will not only reduce the redness and inflammation, it will also cause a pimple to clear up faster. Another alternative is to dab a small amount of the Advanced Purifying Cleanser on a Q-tip or cotton swab and apply it to a pimple. But wait, do not wash it off! Instead, let the cleanser hang out on your skin for a while; the high-performance ingredients in this cleanser will help to address redness and irritation and remove airborne pollutants and residue.
