The dreaded bacne has made its way back into our lives. The skin on your body can handle something a little stronger when it comes to exfoliation. If you do not have our Salicylic Face and Body Wash, we also love a good peppermint wash!

It's natural to sweat more in the summer months, whether you're running around after kids or outside dealing with a heat wave, it can lead to breakouts you didn't see coming.
Last week we sent out an email teaching all of you the order of operations when it comes to your skincare routine. We can't stress enough how important it is to keep up with that routine. You must cleanse morning and night, clearing away any debris.

People tend to use an alcohol-based toner when struggling with oily skin. However, it can dehydrate your skin, which just produces more oil! With that summer heat and all of that sunscreen, you may notice your skin is more oily than usual. We suggest using a gel cleanser in the morning to help control the oil (Chamomile Facial Cleanser).
Cocktails and spicy foods may hit the spot on a hot night. But they won't do your skin any favors; they dilate blood vessels, and make you perspire. Limit yourself to one drink a night, and eat spicy foods no more than once a week. And consider loading up instead on carrots, cantaloupe, and spinach; foods like these that are high in vitamin A can actually slow oil production.

Sunscreen should be your best pal all summer long. It’s one of the only products that we suggest reapplying consistently throughout the day. Fight the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer by wearing an SPF 30+ daily.
