Say hello to endless sunshine with Voss Botanicals' Summer Collection!

As the sun-kissed days of summer approach, it's crucial to gear up with the right skincare essentials to protect and nourish your skin while you enjoy the outdoors. Whether you're lounging by the pool, hiking in the mountains, or simply soaking up some vitamin D at the beach, here are some must-have items to keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long:

  1. Mineral Sunscreen: Your Shield Against UV Rays

 First things first, sunscreen is non-negotiable. Opt for a mineral sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide for broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. These sunscreens are gentle on sensitive skin and provide effective, long-lasting protection without harmful chemicals. Remember to reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.

  1. Zinc Oxide Lip Balm: Keep Your Lips Smooth and Protected

 Don’t forget your lips! The delicate skin on your lips needs protection too. Look for a lip balm enriched with zinc oxide to shield your lips from the sun’s rays. Bonus points if it also contains moisturizing ingredients like shea butter or coconut oil to keep your lips soft and supple.

  1. Natural Bug Spray: Ward Off Unwanted Guests

Summer evenings often come with pesky insects. Choose a natural bug spray containing essential oils like citronella, eucalyptus, or lemongrass to repel mosquitoes and other bugs. These natural alternatives are safer for your skin and the environment compared to chemical-laden sprays.

  1. Cucumber and Aloe Soap: Cool Down and Cleanse

After sun exposure, treat your skin to a refreshing shower with cucumber and aloe vera soap. Cucumber helps soothe sunburned skin, while aloe vera provides hydration and promotes healing. This gentle soap will cleanse away sweat, dirt, and sunscreen residue without stripping your skin of its natural oils.

  1. After sun Scrub: Restore and Revitalize

 Pamper your skin post-sun with an after-sun scrub that exfoliates and moisturizes. Look for a scrub infused with hydrating ingredients like coconut oil and vitamin E to help repair sun-damaged skin and leave it silky smooth. Use it a few times a week to maintain a healthy glow throughout the summer.

  1. Waterproof Beach Bag: Tote Your Essentials in Style

 Lastly, keep all your summer skincare essentials organized and easily accessible in a waterproof beach bag. Look for a spacious bag with compartments to store your sunscreen, lip balm, bug spray, soap, scrub, and any other beach or poolside necessities. Opt for a bright, fun color or a stylish pattern to complement your summer vibes.

With these summer skincare essentials in your arsenal, you can enjoy the sunshine worry-free, knowing that your skin is protected, nourished, and ready to glow all season long. Embrace the outdoors, stay hydrated, and don’t forget to reapply that sunscreen regularly!
