Summer blossoms differently on each person's face, and to honor this diverse profusion of blooms we’ve compiled some key tips that will help bring balance, peace and radiance to summer skin in all its forms.
with Tea Tree Gel Cleanser and Green Tea Clay Mask
The gentle cleansing action of Tea Tree Gel Cleanser is amazing for blemished, congested or inflamed summer skin.
Bodies beg to be moved during summer, beg to be danced, beg to be stretched, beg to swim, beg to stride along shadowed forest trails. Movement in skin care is created through regular Clay masking. Summer is an especially important time to be consistent about using a clay mask to keep skin clear, glowing and unburdened. Clay is dynamic, and when activated with a HydroSoul it truly comes to life. On the skin, clay draws impurities, clears stagnation, awakens vitality and nourishes deeply. Summer skin revels in a weekly mask of Green Tea Clay - which not only clears congestion but infuses the skin with an abundance of antioxidants bestowed by organic matcha green tea powder.
with Heart of Summer, Rose Geranium or Lemon Thyme HydroSoul
Integrating a HydroSoul into your daily protocol will completely transform the efficacy of your skin care and elevate it to the next level. The more HydroSoul you use, the calmer, softer and more luminous the skin becomes.
We use HydroSoul with cleansers, oil serums, moisturizers, masks, cosmetics and simply throughout the day to uplift and rejuvenate both skin and spirit. For summer skin — often oily, blemish-prone, dehydrated or combination, hydration is especially important.
with Blue Cactus Beauty Elixir and Sea Algae Serum
Summer skin likes refreshment, hydration, lightweight yet nourishing oils.
Sea Algae Serum provides skin with a beautiful feast of antioxidants, and it also acts as a fantastic primer. Containing plant-based Hyaluronic Acid, bio-fermented kelp, and organic aloe vera, it adds a unique additional layer of hydration to your daily skin ritual.
Blue Cactus Beauty Elixir is a delicious summer-skin oil, being both lightweight, but deeply quenching, high in antioxidants, and profoundly cooling and soothing. Its sweet, damp nature is a perfect treatment for all fiery skin issues, which are always exacerbated by the heat of summer. Always remember to pair any face oil with your favorite HydroSoul for optimal synergy.
with Blue Cactus Cooling Balm
While not all summer skin will need this extra layer of moisture, for those who experience extra dryness in this season, this Balm is our favorite ally. Blue Cactus Face Balm is a dose of cooling and restorative desert moisture to quench and calm dry, flaky, sensitive and irritated skin. At its heart is prickly pear seed oil, a unique and nutrient-dense oil that is cold-pressed from the seeds of the opuntia cactus fruit. This potent oil contains the highest known amount of vitamin E of all plant oils (50% more than argan) along with polyphenols (antioxidants), phytosterols and vitamin K.
Step by Step
Begin by moistening your skin with three to four splashes of warm water.
Mix one pump of cleanser with a couple dribbles of warm water to dilute. Blend in your palms and then massage all over the skin, working in upward circular motions.
Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Hydrate & Nourish
After cleansing, saturate your face with Heart of Summer or Rose Geranium or Lemon Thyme HydroSoul.
In the palm of your hand, combine a dime sized amount of Blue Cactus Beauty Elixir and a pump of Sea Algae Serum with a couple of sprays of the HydroSoul. Blend the two together, then gently and slowly press the warmed emulsion into your skin.
Mist face with HydroSol and press in again.
Finish by applying Blue Cactus Cooling Balm to lips, eye area, or anywhere that calls for extra moisture and protection.
Apply Glow Balm to infuse the skin with soft light.
After cleansing skin, mix equal parts Green Tea Clay and HydroSoul in a small bowl or the cupped palm of your hand and blend until creamy.
Apply Mask with a brush or fingertips and allow it to dry. For a longer activation time, moisten Mask with HydroSoul. Drying times and thickness may vary and average between 10-15 minutes.
Remove with mists of HydroSoul, in the shower or by gently wiping with a warm washcloth.
Follow with Oil & Water Ritual, Face Balm or Moisturizer of your choice.
