Essential Natural Skin Care Products For Summer

  1. Our go-to sunscreen for lazy afternoons in the pool, or weekends at the lake is Consonant’s The PERFECT Sunscreen™ ~ with SPF 30. This water-resistant cream goes on with no white residue, and is fragrance free for sensitive skin types.
  2. Hand and Foot Relief by Graydon: We love showing off our pretty pedicures but cracked, dry feet from sandals & walking on the beach require loving attention. Use a little of this cream every day for prevention, or slather it over your heels when you go to bed.
  3. 100% PURE Mascara: This natural mascara is one of our favourite green beauty finds! It can hold its own against a summer day of outdoor exercise, and play since it’s smudge, and water resistant.
  4. Vitamin B Active Moisture Enzyme Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover by Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics: Collaborations are cool and this partnership between beauty writer @beautybets and One Love Organics is no exception. Wash away your makeup, exfoliate, and clean your face with this multi-tasking natural skin care product. We think it’s the perfect summer cleanser as it restores your skin’s moisture and pH balance after being outdoors all day.
  5. 100% PURE’s Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer SPF20: With five different tints to choose from this moisturizer is a must-have for a lightweight summer makeup. We love to wear it when heading to work, an outdoor concert, or cocktails on the patio.
  6. Zoe Organics Everything Balm: Keep this aside for after the insects bite! This versatile balm is made with shea butter, coconut and jojoba oils to gently heal skin.
  7. Graydon’s All Over Soap & Shampoo: We love simplicity in our beauty routine especially in the summer. This plant-based soap can be used all over your body and hair plus its all natural ingredients are make it safe for the lake!
  8. Lovefresh Sugar Scrub: Summer skin can be more sensitive due to sun exposure. This fine sugar scrub is gentle enough for a regular exfoliation. It works well in between pedicures on our rough heels!
  9. One Love Organics Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder: Summertime is all about activity. After a day at work, there’s still hours left to play outside. Keep it in your purse, and sprinkle the powder on your hair for a refresh between washes.
  10. Zoe Organics Insect Repellent: Whether you summer in the city, or cottage country, mosquitos come out to bite during humid days and nights. Spray yourself with this 100% blend of botanical oils and rub it in to keep yourself covered.
  11. Lovefresh Deodorant: Can deodorant make you happy?! We think so, with Lovefresh’s natural deodorant that really works. No stinky underarms here! There are a variety of gorgeous scents that can stand up to summer heat.
  12. Skin Soother Hydrating Lotion: Ella’s Botanicals created this for Causemetics, where four dollars from every bottle sold goes to help breast cancer patients. We also love its ability to sooth sun kissed skin.

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.
