Summertime skin is a tricky thing: one must deal with protecting the skin from the damaging rays of the sun, while avoiding the pasty white effect of heavy SPF; plus there’s sweat, humidity and sticky makeup to add into the mix. What does one do, to achieve a balanced, matte, healthy complexion at all times?
Tata recommends the following products, for both getting ready for each day in the morning and for keeping handy throughout the day. Plus, with August’s vacations coming up, be sure to pack these along for beautiful skin no matter where you go.
Cleanse, detoxify, exfoliate & moisturize: Yes, all with one product. Meet our Regenerating Cleanser. This product was made to give the skin exactly what it needs year-round, and is especially perfect in the summer when we’re outside much more than in the winter. Being outside more means more exposure to environmental damage, pollution and daily wear-and-tear that contributes to more cell turnover (aka, more dead skin buildup each day) – plus, a little more sweat and oil production. This cleanser thoroughly cleans the skin with both chemical and physical exfoliation, to give your complexion a fresh start. It sloughs off dead skin buildup, balances oil production, cleanses pores with antiseptic and antibacterial essential oils, and preserves moisture. Glowing, soft skin through summertime months is yours!
Matte-finish, damage-fighting age-defying treatment: Start each day off with a dose of seriously concentrated nutrition in our Rejuvenating Serum. This product is biocompatible and sinks right into the skin, so it doesn’t leave any oily residue. In fact, within seconds after applying it, your skin feels totally normal – plus a little extra silky softness. Date Palm, one of our wrinkle-fighting actives, increases anti-oxidating activity in the skin to effectively reduce environmental damage from UV exposure. When exposed to the sun, that antioxidating activity increases by 66% in 24 hours. While it’s definitely no SPF, we’ve all found that this product helps keep our skin great despite a long day in the sun.
Sunscreen: We’re working hard on creating the world’s finest 100% natural SPF – but in the mean time, Tata loves Vive Sana’s sunscreen for herself and the kids. Their formulas are totally nontoxic, and they really work. The best part is that a little goes a long way – and their formulas are pro-skin-health and contribute to softer, smoother skin.
Guaranteed-glowy skin: Twice a week, slather our Resurfacing Mask on a clean face and take a breather for 20 minutes to let it work its magic. This mask minimizes pores, balances oil production, reduces redness and irritation, and fights breakouts. Plus, it solves textural issues by removing dead skin buildup and softening the surface of the skin. This Mask just won ELLE’ Green Star award – for the best eco-friendly beauty products out there – and last year, it won Allure’s Best of Beauty award. It’s perfect for after a hot, sweaty day. Check it out.
