Summer Beauty Tip
Did you know that your skin has a natural 28 day exfoliation cycle? It’s true. Our body’s largest organ, our skin, is pre-programmed to shed dead skin cells to make way for revealing new, fresh cells underneath. However, as we age, the rate at which our body can naturally regenerate skin cells decreases significantly. Exfoliating with good, all-natural or organic products essentially encourages the skin’s cellular metabolism. Regular exfoliation can also help reduce dead skin cells blockage of pores, balance sebum (oil) product and significantly improve the absorption of serums and moisturizers.

Healthy collagen production can result in less fine lines and wrinkles, a more even complexion and overall more elastic and brighter looking skin. Serums work much better than creams or lotions, especially during the summer. Concentrated and lightweight, the active ingredients are quickly absorbed into the skin. This makes serums perfect for layering with under other skincare products without interfering with their natural process. Because serums tend to be light and water based, most skin types can use them without becoming overly oily.

Summer Soft Foot Solution
Summer Beauty Tip
Summertime means that sandals and bare feet are an absolute must. However, that also means that your feet will probably take quite a beating transporting you from place to place everyday. To get those tootsies prepped and stay primed for the entire summer, you’ll need to give them some extra TLC. Keeping the skin soft and beautiful can take some work. Here are three simple steps that’ll let you rock those scrappy sandals all summer long.
This is as basic as it gets. Fill a bath or wash basin with warm, soapy water. You can add epsom salt for extra softness or to relieve any pain or discomfort. Soak your feet for 10-15 minutes to loosen dead skin before moving on to step two — scrubbing.
Now that you’ve properly soaked your footsies, it’s time time to follow up with a good scrub to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating after soaking allows the skin to properly regenerate and form new and healthy skin cells.
Moisturizing is the key to keeping skin soft and hydrated throughout the summer months. Running around barefoot and in flip flops can take a toll on the heels and toes, leaving the skin dull and dry. After soaking and exfoliating, applying a hydrating foot cream will keep them soft, smooth and ready for action.
