We’ve all been waiting for this moment - summer has finally arrived! Now is the time to enjoy your daily dose of vitamin D! As much as we look forward to summer, one question remains. Are we fully prepared for the beautiful season? To make sure you enjoy the next few months like you know you should, we’ve gathered a few essentials to have on hand.
Summer essentials are here!
First things first - sunscreens!
Summer and sun come hand in hand, which means sunscreen should be by your side (and on your skin) every hour of the day. It can be difficult to navigate through all the options available but to make it simple, here’s the most important thing to know: the higher the SPF is, the longer you can stay under the sun without having to reapply sunscreen, but the UV protection will not be as effective as it is with a low SPF. The best and safest solution is to find a sunscreen that has a low SPF and to reapply often.
Have a look at our different options - lotion, spray, low and high SPF. You are sure to find the one that answers your needs.
Deodorant or Antiperspirant? The question that always comes up!
Is it the same thing? Why offer two different versions of the same product?
We know, it can be confusing, but both options have their advantages. Deodorants have antibacterial agents that eliminate the bacteria causing odors. However, deodorants will not prevent you from sweating. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, have very small particles that will get into your sweat pores to create a plug, which will stop you from sweating, leaving you odorless.
Note that both products are aluminum-free, which should be your first concern whether you opt for one or the other. Read our blog article on the subject to learn more on the differences between deodorants and antiperspirants, and make a better choice.
Lip Balm in the summer? Definitely!
We often associate lip balm with cold weather, but sun, humidity, and wind can also cause chapped lips. Good news, our lip balms have an SPF 15 protection, which means you nourish and moisturize your delicate lips while protecting them from UVA and UVB rays. Perfect (and essential) for long days outside!
There you have it! You’re now fully ready to enjoy this beautiful season. All that’s missing is a beach, a camping pass or a fun day at the park!
