Summer Skin

Gardenia Daily Body Serum: Lazy summer days at the beach, by the pool or in the garden can lead to parched, dull skin. Apply Gardenia Daily Body Serum immediately after each shower or bath to help to keep skin smooth, hydrated and beautifully scented all summer long.This convenient spray on body oil dissolves into skin within mere seconds thanks to its fine mist spray applicator and lightweight, non-sticky/greasy formula. Bonus: the beautiful gardenia aroma is all natural, amazing and is simply not to be missed!

Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder: If there’s ever a time for shiny, vibrant, luscious hair, it’s summer. But precious locks may actually take a serious hit during the summer months. Sun, water, heat and chlorine can be damaging, leading to faded color, split ends and a brittle, dry texture. Hair color is such an investment; we recommend that you wet your hair before sunning or swimming and coat hair with a small amount of oil or balm to create an emollient barrier to help protect strands. Finally, we recommend washing as infrequently as possible during the summer months, using Healthy Locks Powder to freshen hair between shampoos. Our unique formula featuring silica rich bamboo extract leaves hair feeling soft, refreshed and beautifully scented and promotes hair and scalp health.

Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist: 100% pure fruit water extracted from the heart of organic pink grapefruits, Pretty Pores Mist is purifying, naturally astringent and offers the antioxidant power of Vitamin C to energize skin for a healthy summer glow. This material was made fresh for One Love Organics and we cannot get another batch until next summer! The mist has a very faint aroma of fresh grapefruit and it infuses the skin with valuable plant nutrients such as bioavailable vitamins, antioxidants, trace elements and mineral salts found naturally in the fruit. With a natural pH of 4.9, Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist is perfect for spritzing the skin post cleansing to help skin return to its natural acidic state and to infuse the skin with nutrients before moisture application.  It is best for oily, blemish-prone and combination skin.

Apple a Day Brightening Facial Cleanser: Typically, hot summer weather means that the skin may produce excess oil that can leave the skin shiny and prone to breakouts. This cleanser is an in-house OLO favorite! It has a beautiful and all natural aroma of freshly cut green apples and a fluffy foaming lather. To help prevent excess oil and breakouts, we recommend a cleanser with a gentle blend of acids to help break down oil and impurities, leaving pores clean and unclogged. Using a cleanser with aggressive acids, particularly in the summer, can contribute to accelerated sun damage, so be sure and use a cleanser that has a low, not high, concentration of acids. Apple a Day Brightening Facial Cleanser has a pH of 5.3 and contains a low percentage of malic, glycolic and lactic acids for a product that is effective over time but is not too harsh or drying.

Cleans Your Skin and Relax

I've tried a lot of different product but nothing makes my skin feel as clean and radiant as the Elizabeth Dehn Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and Makeup Remover. Not to mention that it smells amazing!   It’s a “next level” oil cleanser in that it’s formulated to be used in either the traditional manner (see below) or it can be effortlessly rinsed off with water only. When water hits this cleansing oil, it turns into a creamy, milky cleanser. Rinsing with water alone is fine, but if you’re using it to remove makeup, I do recommend you follow the traditional cleansing method and use a cloth to help remove residue. The ED4OLO Cleansing Oil smells incredible and fruity, like fresh pineapple. The formula features papain, a fruit enzyme that helps to exfoliate and soften skin, and a natural vitamin b complex to help detoxify and tone. I love the versatility of this cleanser. If I’m in a hurry, I can massage it in, rinse, and go. My skin is noticeably even-toned and happy. If I rinse off this cleanser with water, I do follow up with a facial oil.

 Now, for the best part! Once I've cleansed my skin, I wet a washcloth with hot (not scalding) water, wring it out, and press it over my face until the cloth cools off. Take your time and inhale deeply, because the scent of lavender or pineapple is going to enhance your ability to relax. When the cloth cools, I repeat and let the day melt away. After you've had a few moments to chill, wipe off the oil with a cloth....one of my favourite ways to end the day!

If like me, you want to know 'how things work', here's a bit more of an explanation of how the addition of tropical fruit makes this product so amazing. 

Besides being tasty, papaya fruit has the enzyme Papain, a natural proteolytic enzyme. This type of enzyme has the unique ability to exfoliate dead cells without damaging or irritating even the most sensitive skin. Papain also helps brighten dull or sallow complexions and can help to reduce the appearance of sun-damage and mild breakouts. Papaya has naturally high concentrations of vitamins A, C, and E and is a rich source of alpha‐linolenic acid and caryophyllene, two phytochemicals with strong anti‐inflammatory properties. So enamored with papaya, we couldn’t pass up the chance to also use bothpapain and papaya seed oil. The oil from papaya seeds is full of rich nutrients, fatty acids and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects for clean, nourished skin.

Everyone is familiar with pumpkins, right? Even if we have a few months still before they make their ubiquitous appearance all over America. As a natural source of salicylic acid to gently exfoliate and improve your skin texture, pumpkin seed oil became an almost obvious choice. Pumpkin seeds are a wonderful source of zinc and Omegas 3 & 6, helping to improve skin elasticity.  Remember to thank those pumpkins this October when you’re wiping off all of that costume makeup (with your Elizabeth Dehn Cleanser of course). Pumpkin Seed Oil can also act as an accelerator, helping the skin to absorb nutrients quickly. It is used in many anti‐aging formulas and initiates skin recovery from various types of damage, including photo-damage.

Using organic phospholipids and the latest encapsulation technologies, the pumpkin and papain ingredients is perfect for dry, nutrient deficient skin. The ingredient we use boasts a novel delivery system that enhances the penetration of active extracts and the natural plant material. This delivery system, when applied to the skin, can help to inhibit trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) to increase moisturization. And remember, the key to anti-aging is keeping skin properly moisturized and well fed. Speaking of which, both pumpkin and papaya are rich and natural sources of the Vitamin B Complex. The term B-complex is a less complicated way of refering to vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenate), B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cyancobalamine), and folic acid. These vitamins help detoxify and tone your skin, while also helping to regulate oil production and calm inflammation.
