Summer Skins

The summer is coming, it has to be right! Ack patience, patience…

What to do in the interim… skin prep! If you haven’t tried dry brushing you gotta, not only will it leave your skin buffed and beautiful but it’s actually is good for your health too. It exfoliates to open pores and helps expel toxins.

Next, you want to moisturize. I’m big on using naturals oils, they leave your skin lustrous, some vitamins and minerals can be absorbed through your skin AND they have naturals SPFs… what? Yes you read that correctly. Olive, coconut and sesame oil are about a 5 and wheatgerm oil is a 20 spf and that’s only a few of them.

Of course you must use caution when spending time under the sun, but like always we want to think about what you put in and on your body. Wanna know more, start here maybe followed by a google search or two. Fascinating stuff.

Now let’s focus all our positive thoughts on moving those clouds so the sun can shine down this weekend!
