Clean Beauty for Summer Skin Recovery

Clean Beauty for Summer Skin Recovery

Sure, you were glowing all summer long, but so much sun exposure may have your skin craving some extra TLC this fall. Even if you spent your days under hats and a veil of spf, it’s important to check in with your skin and keep it nourished. Show your skin some love with our clean beauty tips for summer skin recovery!

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen each year after 30. By consuming collagen and collagen promoting foods, you fortify your body with the nutrients it needs to keep your skin smooth and elastic and your joints lubricated. Collagen is also a key player in ensuring strong, healthy nails and hair and it’s great for repairing certain digestive issues. Try it in a hydrating coconut collagen smoothie or stir it into your morning coffee- Orgain grass-fed, pasture-raised collagen peptides are tasteless and blend seamlessly into many dishes for optimal skin and joint care. We’ve even been known to put collagen in our favorite green goddess salad dressing and iced matcha lattes for the ultimate in super easy summer skin recovery.  

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that research shows stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and skin recovery process. And while vitamin C serums make plenty of big fountain of youth promises, they really only make a slight difference on the surface (literally). Instead, reach for citrus, berries, tomatoes, and red and yellow peppers to rev up your body’s natural skin-repair response. 

A good post-summer exfoliation sloughs away dead, dry skin cells, clearing the surface for brighter, healthier skin. Give dry brushing a try to increase circulation and encourage new skin cell growth. Moisturizing with aloe vera can also firm and brighten skin while cooling any lingering sun burn. Try applying aloe vera as a mask for a little extra after-sun love to your face- and don’t hesitate to apply it anywhere that feels irritated, dry, and in need of serious hydration. 

Finally, continue using SPF! You may not be spending as much time by the pool but it’s important to wear spf if you’re spending more than 15 minutes under the rays. Applying a facial moisturizer and body lotion with spf in the formula keeps your morning routine fuss free and reduces your risk for developing skin cancer. So, even if you forgot your spf or fell asleep at the beach more often than you meant to this summer, rest assured. Our skin is naturally regenerative and we can help our skin recover with clean nutrition and some simple self-care.
