Hydrated skin is gleaming, healthy-looking skin—and who doesn’t want that? With summer upon us you’re likely to be showing more skin, whether by the pool, at the beach or wearing tank tops and shorts. (You also deserve happy, healthy skin when its covered up as well). Just remember, sun protection always comes first during the day, and then you can feel free to bare as much as you’d like!
And be sure to check out the Karité Shea Butter x Bergen Dermatology Summer Box… Featuring our Baume à Lèvres Lip Balm and Bergen Dermatology’s Sheer Joy Sunscreen SPF 50+ (our dermatologist co-founder’s amazing daily sun protection), don’t head outside without either of them this summer!
Skin tip #1: Exfoliate
It’s important to gently slough away the dead skin cells that are standing between you and the soft, smooth skin you’re after. Whether you prefer a mitt, loofah or exfoliating scrub, any of these methods will get the job done. You can even make your own scrub with a variety of ingredients you already have on hand… Think sugar crystals, salt, or even coffee grounds!
Skin tip #2: Moisturize
Come summer, think of our Crème Corps Hydrating Body Cream as your skin’s best friend. Formulated with raw, unrefined shea butter and organic, unrefined coconut oil, it serves up a surge of antioxidants and moisture for thirsty skin while leaving a subtle sheen behind. Apply after showering while skin is still damp to lock in moisture—and once again before heading out if necessary. (If you prefer a moisturizer with a lighter consistency during the summer, our Crème Mains Hand Cream also offers skin-smoothing, glow-enhancing benefits from the neck down, and the tube is perfectly-sized for a hydration boost when you’re on the go.)
Skin tip #3: Love your lips
You don’t want your lips to be jealous, do you? Let them in on the action with our Baume à Lèvres Lip Balm. Designed to soften, plump and hydrate for hours with a blend of raw, unrefined shea butter, organic jojoba oil, murumuru butter and more, just a light swipe of this antioxidant-rich balm leaves the perfect amount of non-sticky sheen that works for women and men alike.
