Essential oils play an important role in your skin health. These remarkable oils can also help you beat the heat, naturally of course, during the summer months. They keep us fresh by removing bacteria from the air and killing bacteria on the skin, all while boosting your mood, repelling insects, and so much more.
You don't have to live in the desert to know how big of a challenge it can be to care for your skin during the summer months. It takes more than just SFP and drinking lots of water to keep your skin healthy, and hydrated. Your skin needs herbally infused, cooling recovery!
Here are my favorite ZB blends to keep you cool, calm, and refreshed all summer long.
No Worries Body Oil is my daytime must-have and is always within reach for dry skin 911. When I look at my keyboard and see that my hands need extra attention, I pause for a simple and oh, so necessary self-care break. The healing tea tree and refreshing peppermint oils help me to de-stress and regroup. When I've got a little extra time, I enjoy a No Worries Soak to relieve and rejuvenate my tired body - it's amazing how soaking my feet for 15 minutes can make my entire body feel better. The cooling blend of oils is just what our bodies need!
After an invigorating hike or day of fun in the sun, my legs and feet are ready for a Poppin' Peppermint or Euphoria polishing scrub. These multi-tasking superstars not only exfoliate to help protect the skin from sun damage and hydrate with a soothing blend of herbs, and oil such as peppermint, lemon, and eucalyptus essential oils, but they also give me a boost of energy while they cool and refresh my body and mind.
Defuse spray feels amazing on my skin. Any time of day it's is my secret weapon on the go. When the heat gets particularly intense, a quick spritz on my feet, or on the back of my neck helps cool me down right away. Lavender and peppermint oils make it perfect for a post-sun or post-workout recovery pick-me-up so I can get back to enjoying the warm weather - no pool necessary! I’ve also found that this cooling spray works really well for helping take the “itch” out of bug bites and the burn out of sunburned skin.
For my summertime evening ritual, Chill Out Body Oil waits on the nightstand to help me drift off to dreamland. The peppermint and lavender scents help me decompress and relax from the day. I like to lovingly rub the healing oils into the soles of my feet, pull on fluffy spa socks, and then it is lights out. The problems of the day fade away as I softly sink into my Tempur-Pedic pillow. The Dalia Lama believes sleep is the best meditation. He might be on to something!
Please let me know what you think of my picks to help de-stress and moisturize, leave a comment with your favorites.
While these products are great for helping you chill out all summer, be sure to hydrate internally as well with fresh water, fruit juices, and herbal teas. Keep safe while soaking up some Vitamin D by covering up with light, breathable fabrics or by using an Oxybenzone-free and Paraben-free sunscreen. We recommend carrying a full water bottle with you at all times and listening to your body’s cues. If you’re feeling tired and run down, drink a few glasses of water and rest your body and mind as needed.
