Temperatures are rising to levels our planet has never seen before. Trying to keep ourselves cool, we are spending more time in the water and in doing so, we are inevitably exposing ourselves to extremely harmful UV rays. Here is a roundup of our summer must-haves and what we are doing to keep our skin protected and safe during this beautiful yet brutally hot summer.
Earlier this June we co-hosted an event with the gorgeous Gigi Burris and we immediately fell in love with her hats. Every piece is made by hand in New York City and her design and materials celebrate the artistry of local artisans. This raffia straw is definitely my favorite and it's perfect for travel because you can fold it in your suitcase and it doesn't lose its shape!
Never without our best selling Eugenia's Rosehip oil! Its powerful formulation of all natural ingredients keeps my skin super hydrated. Powerful CBD helps soothe any redness I may have after a long day in the sun, and it leaves my skin glowing with a dewy feel!
Sunscreen! I reapply it every two hours and it just lives in my purse. Lately I have been using the Supergoop! Play for a day in the water and Unseen for my daily use during my morning routine.
If the editors at BUSTLE can't stop slathering our All-In-One Miracle Serum is for a very good reason! This water based serum, formulated with AHA, white tea extract, hyaluronic acid, rose water and powerful CBD, is the one product I've been using to counteract the inevitable sun damage on my skin! During this extremely hot weather I keep mine in the fridge for a much needed cooling experience!
I am an oil person and I love mixing different ones. My latest blend which I am obsessed with is between the original formula of Every Day Oil and the body oil from Wild Yonder Botanicals. Both completely clean and natural. One smells like palo santo, the other is just summer in a bottle and mixing them leaves my body nourished and super hydrated.
And don't forget to drink up! During these very hot months, it is key to remember that hydration is also an inside job! Make sure to drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated from the inside out!
Sending good energy your way, with immense gratitude for being a part of this community!
