5 Ways To Naturally Beat The Heat , 0 Comments
As temperatures become hot, hot, hot, we’re all anxious for ways to stay cool. Our first line of defense from the heat is to protect our bodies from getting over heated in the first place. To start, add a non-toxic SPF to your daily morning routine. Even though you may not be planning to spend an extended amount of time outside, during the summer a walk to the car or a chat with a neighbor near the mailbox could leave skin with an unfamiliar pink hue.
Also, try to cover skin as much as possible with hats, clothing, and even lightweight scarves. Skip clothing made with synthetic materials and instead choose items made from breathable, organic cotton, bamboo, or linen. And hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Even when you’re indoors it is important to fuel your body with lwater, fresh fruit, or herbal tea.
But no matter how much we try to protect our bodies, it is inevitable that at some point we will get too much sun or overheat. Here are 5 natural ways to help you cool down in a pinch:
2. For an all over body cool down, rub ice cubes on your pulse points. Pulse points include wrists, neck, elbows, behind the knees, and ankles.
And of course we'd be remiss in recommending our favorite after-sun product. Luxe Body Butter has amazing ingredients, like organic Tamanu Oil, to soothe and calm skin, which is a perfect product to apply after being in the sun. And if you get a bit too crispy, make sure you have some of our B Soothed on hand. The versatile formulation offers superb moisture, relief from crack skin, and help in minimizing the appearance of potential scars.
With these natural skin care tips you can take full advantage of the summer and all the fun it has to offer.
