Five Necessary Skincare Tools For Summer Beach Days

If you’re anything like me, summer means sun, sandy swimsuits, and salty hair. But just because we’re out in the sun, doesn’t mean we can forget about our skin!

Here is our simple checklist of must-have products for the summer and how to use them on the beach.

1) Rosewater toner

While salt water can be beneficial in small doses, as it can reduce inflammation and absorb toxins, too much salt can be detrimental for the skin. As salt sits on the skin, it continues to dehydrate the skin. This leads to the overproduction of oil, which can cause breakouts. The Rosewater Toner not only ensures that the skin is clean after going into the ocean or pool, but it also balances the skin’s pH. Even better, this product comes in a travel size too, which is perfect to carry on-the-go.


2) Golden Elixir

After hours in the sun, sea, or pool, your skin can lose a lot of moisture. To hydrate crunchy, salt-swept swept hair, you can apply the Golden Elixir to the scalp and ends. Also, feel free to apply the oil all over the face and body. It soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave a residue, which is perfect for sun worshipers everywhere.


3) Highlighter Sticks

For those photo-worthy moments, or just to add some summer-y dimension to your face or body, you can quickly apply our new highlighter sticks for a natural, fresh glow. It adds just the right amount of luminosity, while also nourishing and hydrating your skin. Even better, our highlighter sticks maintain their shine even in the water! We love applying the highlighters on our body for a little extra glow while at the beach!


4) MYMATCHA All-Over Moisture Stick

While the Golden Elixir is safe for all over the face and body, the MYMATCHA Stick can add any extra hydration you may need…very quickly! This stick is especially helpful as a deep moisture spot treatment (i.e. dry spots, under-eye area, or lips). This powerful product can not only rejuvenate dry spots, but it also protects the skin from free radical damage.


5) Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!

In case you haven’t heard, SPF (sun protection factor) is so, so crucial for healthy skin. Powerful UV rays can easily damage the skin, which leads to wrinkles, discoloration, and even skin cancer. To protect yourself, make sure to use an SPF of at least 30. If you’re not sure which one to choose, we recommend Goddess Garden, Badger (the cleanest of them all but with a slightly heavier feel), or COOLA mineral sunscreen products! And don’t worry, our team is working on an SPF product for the years to come!
