Head-to-Toe Summer Skin Ready Checklist (Pt. II)

Has your weather warmed up any more since last week? In the last post we talked about the importance of exfoliating dry Winter skin off to prep for skin bearing, Summer days, which are hopefully ahead soon! We provided suggestions for head-to-toe exfoliation, now the next step after will be HYDRATION.

Hydrating your skin after exfoliating is very important because you have removed to top layers of skin leaving the new skin exposed. By hydrating the newly revealed skin you will…

  1. Help keep skin young looking…no wrinkles!
  2. Reduce future skin problems
  3. Conceal other skin blemishes

Now time to explore some of our hero products that we recommend to hydrate your skin from head-to-toe.

Daily Concepts Your Renewal Oil (it’s a spray too!) will change your skin’s life. This oil has a unique blend of ingredients that will nourish your skin all day.

  • Sacha Inchi- Native to the Amazon region of Peru, it is know as the “fruit of Youth” high in antioxidants and beta Keratin. This helps the skin absorb all the nutrients which combined helps penetrate the skin to protect and neutralize the effects of free radicals responsible for aging cells.
  • Quinoa- Is an ancient seed that grows high in the Andes mountains of Peru. It is a great source of  protein, amino acids and Vitamin E, which helps hydrate the skin and helps it seal the moisture.
  • Lucuma- Is a sweet fruit that is native to the Andes region of Peru. This super fruit has healing and anti-inflammatory properties that helps sooth the skin and support natural collagen production.
  • Sunflower Seed– Helps rebuild the skins natural shield against environmental agents.
