The best beauty care during summer
Sweet summertime, and its longer, glowing days and shorter, starry nights, is finally here. When we think about summer, most of us picture-perfect summer scenery – palm trees emerging from the white sand, the coconut smell of our tanned, healthy skin, and Bossa Nova music beats in the background. But not everything about summer is magical. When the temperatures reach more than 30 degrees C during the day and our body suffocates of humidity, it doesn’t matter whether we are on the beach or in the city – we all feel uncomfortable. In the midst of the summer, our skin suffers as well and requires special attention. Increase in temperatures during the summer combined with humidity, changes the quality of your skin – oily skin gets oilier, and dry skin gets patchy. And don’t get me started on those persistent breakouts and pimples that just wouldn’t go away! But don’t let the summer get the best of your skin – this is the right time to change up your skincare routine. Just a few simple changes in your everyday skincare regimen can ensure that you are all set to glow through this season, too.
Start by cherishing the importance of natural products, rich in non-aggressive, healthy ingredients that have the power to regenerate your skin and keep it in balance. We recommend skincare products based on CBD and hemp oil as they have proven to be the best for maintaining healthy skin. CBD and its powerful antioxidant properties help in managing oil production while slowing down the aging process, thus keeping the skin fresh and young. Wondrous hemp oil improves skin health by balancing out oily skin while keeping it hydrated. Beauty skin products containing these two ingredients should be the ones to include into your summertime skincare routine and should find their place onto your shelf this summer. Below, we have prepared a list of summer skin care tips for you to follow during these hot, sunny days along with a list of amazing CBD and hemp products that are totally worth trying this summer.
Too much sun is bad for your skin
Avoid the summer sun. Despite your fondness of sunshine and your essential need for it after the long, sun-restricted period of the year, you should be super careful with your exposure to the sun at this time of the year. The extra hours in the sun can seriously impact your skin-damaging UV rays can cause premature aging of the skin, accelerating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and saggy skin. During the summer months, the sun’s rays are the harshest between noon and 4 p.m., so it would be best to avoid being outside during these times. No matter what skin type or skincare concerns you may have, you should wear SPF daily. UV rays can be harmful to your skin any time of the year, but more so in the summer months when our exposure levels are higher. Apply the sunscreen 20-30 minutes before you head out, and if you are spending all day in the sun reapply every three hours. Reapply it more often, especially if you go swimming or if you sweat a lot. Make sure to cover your hands, feet, shoulders, and neck as well. For sensitive or acne-prone skin, look for a zinc-based mineral sunscreen.
Sunscreen application doesn’t just protect the skin from harmful UV rays but also helps in minimizing sun-related spots and could even help delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. Along with with the sunscreen protection, wear breathable, natural fabrics such as cotton, linen and other lighter materials to tackle the heat. It will help your skin to breathe properly and protect it from harmful UV radiation. For full protection wear a wide-brim hat and seek out shade. Make sure your eyes are covered with sunglasses and lips protected with a balm. If too much heat is making your eyes burn, wash them with clean and cold water.
Stick to the basics
Make sure you follow the 3 basic steps of cleansing, toning and moisturizing, twice a day – in the morning and at night before sleeping. Sticking to the basics during summers is even more important compared to the other seasons of the year. When the air is hot and humid, your pores open and all the dirt, excess oil and sweat tend to stick in, causing your skin to appear extra shiny and red. Choose a facial cleanser that reduces the look of shine, such as Beauty Orgazm’s hemp cleansing and toning facial lotion with its innovative triple-action emulsion which goes beyond daily cleansing to deep cleaning, removal of the excess oil and simultaneous toning your face skin. Besides cleansing delicately, thanks to organic Aloe Vera and lavender hydrolysate, it also acts as a toner, preparing and optimizing complexion to better absorb the active principles of face cream or serum. Gently massage onto your face in circular motions, and then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. If you are one of those people that encounter break-outs and pimples in these hot summer months, splash your face with water plenty of times during the day to keep your skin clean and refreshed. No need to use a face wash every time, clean water would do just fine.
Another method to keep your face clean is exfoliation. Use a scrub once or twice a week in summer. Exfoliation is the key to brighter and smoother skin. It removes dead cells that congest the skin and prevent it from breathing. One of the most effective ways to exfoliate during the summer is to use a scrub on dry skin before you shower. For the best results exfoliate with a Beauty Orgazm’s CBD face scrub – a gentle delicacy of natural sapphire sugar mixed with organic hemp oil. It actively fights skin aging by removing dead cells while stimulating cell renewal. By each application, you will discover a new skin, bright, vital and rejuvenated.
Keep your skin hydrated
During the sticky summer months, opt for a light, water-based moisturizer twice per day that won’t make you feel sticky or extra-sweaty. Beauty Orgazm’s hemp and CBD face cream is just the right choice, as these powerful ingredients will make your skin more compact and elastic. Packed with other numerous beneficial ingredients such as organic Aloe Vera, olive oil and lavender extract, it will prepare your skin to appear more radiant, fresher and youthful. We often forget that the skin around the eyes needs extra attention. And the summer weather can be
especially harsh on the delicate skin around the eyes. The eye area is one of the most common for sunburns, which are the largest cause of premature wrinkles and the appearance of signs of aging on the skin. We recommend using Beauty Orgazm’s hemp and CBD anti-aging eye lift serum eye not just from June through August, but throughout the whole year. It contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, pure organic Damask rose essential oil and Guarana extract. These ingredients keep the skin around the eyes hydrated and prevent wrinkle formation. Plus, its texture is light, and it’s very fast absorbing, which is important during the hot and humid days of summer.
Refresh your body
Taking a cool shower twice a day will not only keep your skin fresh, but it will also help combat summer lethargy. Turn down the water temperature as hot showers after sun exposure further dry skin, while a cool shower helps to keep skin clear, decreasing acne breakouts. Try restorative bath and shower gel from the line of Beauty Orgazm’s products with hemp and CBD. Thanks to CBD, hemp extract and pure natural and organic essential oils of peppermint and sweet Orange, it refreshes the mind and body, reactivating the vitality. It is also very useful by stress or difficulty to alleviate tiredness and promote relaxation on a physical and emotional level.
Help your hair shine
And while you are in the refreshing, relaxing bath, don’t forget to take care of your hair, too. Try revolutionary Beauty Orgazm’s hemp extract and CBD gentle shampoo. It helps to repair hair, visibly increasing its ability to reflect light, also increasing its elasticity and thickness. After each uses your hair will become stronger, healthier and more vital thanks to its organic Cannabis Sativa extracts, organic Aloe Vera, wheat proteins, D-panthenol, creatine, olive oil fraction and organic calendula flower extract. For best results, combine it with Beauty Orgazm’s antistatic hemp and CBD hair serum. 100% of natural and organic origin, it is the plant substitute for synthetic liquid crystals (silicones). Irreplaceable to protect the hair from moisture, applied in very small quantities gives an incredible ”light and healthy” and strong hair. Apply on hair after each washing and enjoy the beauty of your hair.
You are what you eat
What we eat has a lot to do with how we look and feel. Eating heavy food in a hot summertime will make you feel lazy and slow. Additionally, it can make your skin oily and susceptible to breakouts.
At this time of the year go mainly for seasonal fruits and vegetables. Our recommended food of choice for beautiful summer skin is mighty watermelon. Watermelon is the sweet fruit, rich in antioxidants and with high water content. It keeps you cool and at the same time hydrates your skin, resulting in a radiant complexion. Watermelon also contains lycopene, which protects skin cells from sun damage.
Did you know that intake of vitamins C and E together can limit the potential for sunburn, while antioxidants help to boost collagen production and scavenge harmful free radicals to prevent skin damage? Try other superfoods filled with antioxidants and Vitamin C such as tomatoes, citrus fruits, green and leafy vegetables, all kinds of berries, green tea, nuts, and whole grains to have younger and fresh-looking skin.
When the heat is on, the intake of fluids is more than necessary. Water is the most important ingredient for healthy skin. It keeps your skin supple, soft, and radiant. Remember to carry water anywhere you go and make sure your intake of water is an optimum 8-10 glasses at least. Needless to say, stay away from sugary drinks that are full of calories. Instead, opt for freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices which will provide your body with more vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional compounds and help you boost your body energy.
Have a happy summer!
Summer is the best season because it offers us so much. It is the time of the year when we can spend more time outdoors, be it sipping refreshing cocktails on the beach, hiking and camping in the
mountains or chatting with our friends over the cup of a coffee on some flowery balcony. It is the time to get the best out of the sunlight and produce more serotonin – a mood-boosting hormone. It is time to feel happy. It is the time to enjoy the summer breeze on your skin and love a beautiful life. In short: it is the season to relax and forget about the every day worries. But it is not the time to forget about your skincare routine. Yes, summer might seem as the demanding season when it comes to maintaining your regular skincare routine. But in reality, it is all about finding the right balance between the right skin care regimen, including the right products, limiting your exposure to the dangerous sun rays and maintaining a healthy diet.
In addition, don’t forget to let go of stress, stay present and enjoy every moment. Soak up all the best out of this wonderful, though the short season. Be aware at any given moment that the beauty firstly comes from within. So treat yourself with care and love. Afford only the best both for your body and for your soul. Read good books, listen to good music, devote more time to your loved ones and most importantly listen to your body and its needs.
