I hope you have been enjoying your summer so far. As much as we can I guess considering pandemics and such. *sigh*
I seriously thought I would be sitting beachside in Florida or somewhere by now but, such is life.
Despite a little disappointment and cabin fever, I am extremely grateful and excited about the new changes that have taken place in the past few months.
I did a complete career change and have acquired new clients; I feel grown up! LOL. More to come on this soon!
The name of the game this summer is: New Experiences. I have made it my mission to push fear aside and do new things in my life.
With all of this running around in this Georgia summer heat, I have been even more vigilant about my skincare. Forty is a few short years away and I’m trying to protect my skin from any premature aging as much as possible. Coming up a skincare regimen has always been a daunting task for me. Keeping my naturally oily skin healthy without looking like an oil slick has been difficult over the years. On top of that, this natural health journey will not allow me to put just anything on my skin.
Most skincare products on the market contain ingredients that can do more harm than good. Skin allergies and hormone disruption are the most common negative side effects.
After searching high and low, I have come across some great products that are natural and give me that infamous summer glow I’ve been looking for.
My newly found treasures come from the MadHippie and Suntegrity skin care lines.
- The Mad Hippie Vitamin C serum is my must-have product every single day. Within a few days of using it, my skin felt like silk! Full of antioxidants, along with vitamin C, this serum helps with discoloration, the appearance of wrinkles, and as a natural exfoliant thanks to the grapefruit extract. Their Vitamin A serum is also worth every penny! I alternate between the two serums.
- Suntegrity sunscreen is a product that’s been on my radar for about a few years now, and I can’t believe I just started using it a few, short months ago. Sun protection is something that I have not always taken seriously because I have brown skin (biggest myth ever) and every sunscreen I tried was greasy and left a not so cute, white film on my skin. Not to mention finding one that was free of toxic ingredients such as oxybenzone, avobenzone,octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate, seemed impossible. Until I found Suntegrity! No greasy feel, natural ingredients, and broad-spectrum protection all-in-one.
- Urban Skin Rx Cleansing Bar– I just started using this a few weeks ago and my skin is in love. I was on the hunt for a gentle cleanser that was still formulated to handle my oily skin and occasional breakouts. My skin feels smoother and not dried out at all. It is definitely a new fave!
