Summer Skin Package
Step 1: Sweet Ash Scrub
Get your skin summer ready. What have you been hiding under your winter sweaters and yoga pants? The sun is out and it's time to prep your skin! Winter can take a toll on your skin. Today, we're gonna talk about exfoliation! Time to slough off that dead skin to reveal your glow. If your heals are a little cracked or your arms are a little bumpy (keratosis pilaris) or you're just generally flaky (I'm talking about your skin, not canceling plans for a netflix binge), it's time to bust a move and exfoliate. We like our alpha-hydroxy rich Sweet Ash Scrub made with nourishing raw honey, volcanic ash, turbinado sugar, hemp oil and a sweet blend of essential oils including lemongrass + ylang ylang. Alpha Hydroxy acids work by removing the top layers of dead skin cells. They can also increase the thickness of deeper layers of skin, promoting firmness. Before you hop in the shower, take a few mins and rub the scrub, but do so with care. You're only looking to remove the outer layer of dead skin, you don't want to irritate your skin. So skip the salt scrubs, ouch! Pro Tip: If you want a boost, start with your feet using upward strokes to your heart, counter-clockwise strokes on your tummy, and from hands to chest. By doing this your improving circulation, boosting digestion, minimizing the appearance of cellulite, stimulating lymph nodes + detoxing all at the same time! Who doesn't want all that!?!
Step 2: Gypsy Cream
Now that you've shed your winter skin with Sweet Ash Scrub, it's time to hydrate inside + out for the healthiest summer glow! Did you know that a lot of oils contain a natural SPF ? ( That is not and FDA approved comment, they'd rather you slather yourself with some chemicals that have definitely not been proven to cause cancer. (Hear the sarcasm) Our super hydrating Gypsy Cream, that is made with the purest organic ingredients, has an SPF of about 15-20! Melanoma isn't fun, so SPF it up! Gypsy Cream is transdermal, it works it's way down to the deepest layer of your derma and gives you all the tools necessary for your skin to heal + replenish from the bottom up without leaving you greasy or leaving you wanting more. One application in the morning will keep you going all day long. It doesn't clog your pores either, so it's face friendly! Moisturizers lock in water with ingredients like “occlusives,” which prevent water loss in heat or wind, “humectants,” which attract water to skin cells, and “emollients,” which smooth rough and flaking skin. Hydration is what allows skin to function at peak performance. Skin cells in this condition can rapidly repair themselves and turnover fresh cells, which means huge anti-aging benefits down the road. Studies have proven, those who used moisturizer were found to develop wrinkles at a fraction of the rate of those with dry skin. SO CHUG SOME WATER + PUT YOUR GYPSY CREAM ON
Step 3: Oasis
This is our organic body oil that will not only protect your skin from those harmful UV rays by providing SPF protection, but increase collagen and elastin, and also provide moisturization. Buriti oil is a good source of vitamin C, which works with vitamin E to provide antioxidant protection, and is crucial for the production of collagen. Buriti oil has the highest natural occurrence of pro-vitamin A available (carotenoids)! Paired with Marula oil, also know as the elixir of youth, enhances the skin’s firmness and helps in smoothing cellulite. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pigmentation patches and scars, giving you flawlessly smooth skin. One of the most important benefits of Marula oil is that it works both day and night to protect your skin against the damaging effects of environmental elements. Your precious skin is defended against the harsh rays of the sun, cold wind, as well as pollution. While you sleep, it works with the natural renewal process of the skin to help in reversing the damage. This stuff rocks! Don't forget to put on your summer armor!
