While summer is one of the most amazing times of year, it brings its own unique set of challenges. How do you best care for and support your body during this season? How do you protect your skin from the sun or rehydrate after long days in the water? How can you keep those pesky bugs away?
Throw on that sundress and flip-flops or those Bermuda shorts and boat shoes, because SUMMER is Here!
Did you know??
Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It has been found to help fight disease, reduce depression, and help with weight loss.
Do you want to learn how to take care of yourself and your skin so that you can soak up ALL THE SUN?
SKIN: The before and after care you need.
Let’s talk about the trifecta of skin-loving products.The excitement of longer, brighter, and warmer days can make some a little reckless when it comes to caring for their body.
Did you know that too much skin exposure to the sun can not only put you at higher risk of skin cancer but also can prematurely age the skin? You want to filter out UVA and UVB light waves in order to protect your skin. If you can’t avoid the sun, then you can use sunscreen to block those waves. But what about all those chemicals found in sunscreens?! For example, do yourselves a favor and look up Oxybenzone. YUCK!
Cue Young Living!
Made with ingredients you can feel good about, Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion provides protection against UVA and UVB rays without harsh chemical ingredients. With hypoallergenic ingredients and skin-loving essential oils, including Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, and Sacred Frankincense, this gentle sunscreen rubs on smoothly, so you can effortlessly apply it when you're outdoors.
We also need to talk about how to love your skin after being kissed by the sun.
When you stay out in the sun too long, refresh and recover with Young Living’s LavaDerm™ After-Sun Spray. This naturally derived after-sun spray offers temporary relief from the pain and itching of minor burns, minor cuts, sunburns, scrapes, insect bites, and minor skin irritations, so your family can keep playing all day.
After that, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
Young Living’s Coconut Lime Replenishing Body Butter features Lime essential oil and uses plant-based ingredients to deeply moisturize your skin with a non-greasy formula.
Isn’t it funny how when we are deprived of something (summer) for nine months of the year, we initially forget all of the trials and tribulations associated with it? We will all too soon be plagued by mosquitoes, gnats, and flies when all we want to do is enjoy a bonfire or walk along the beach. It’s tempting to reach for the classic insect repellant, but before you do that, flip over the bottle to see if DEET is an active ingredient.
DEET is a registered pesticide. It is a member of the toluene chemical family. Toluene is an organic solvent used in rubber, plastic cements, and paint removers. DEET is absorbed through the skin and can pass into the blood. It can cause allergic skin reactions and eye irritation. A 2013 analysis of about 4,000 DEET-related calls to poison control centers found that 450 people needed medical treatment after applying DEET, and two died. Most cases of seizures, slurred speech, coma, and other serious side effects have occurred in people who ingested DEET or applied it for three or more days in a row or used products with 95 percent DEET or more.
No, thanks. I’ll pass...
Young Living came out with an Insect Repellent that has been tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.
Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-sticky application.
