Five Tips To Maintain Your Summer Glow – Inside & Out

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

  

With fall in full swing, now is the time to ensure you are religiously maintaining your skin care and beauty regime ahead of the colder months to come. We have you covered on skin care and beauty essentials with our Top 5 beauty tips to help you keep that summer glow.

  1. Shed Your Layers: A good facial exfoliant can help remove dead skin cells from your face and body. This is critical as the weather gets cooler as this is the time when dry skin cells tend to proliferate. There is no need to scrub too hard – a gentle exfoliant will do the trick. If you are after a natural product that works immediately to brighten and soften the skin, our & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant is the product for you. This is a product that I will demonstrate to alleviate any concerns  about how "quick" natural products work as the results are visible after on application. This exfoliant is a softening and skin smoothing polish which uses coconut oil as a base. Its multi-active exfoliators including Wattle Seed and Rice Strawberry fruit extracts which boost skin radiance and enhance skin renewal.
  2. Lather Up: Oil based moisturisers are wonderful at protecting your skin from moisture loss. Whilst serums providing active ingredients to plump and firm the skin, a lotion is needed to seal in moisture and provide a barrier to protect the skin. Our No. 4 Vanilla Silk Hydrating Lotion is abundant in fatty acids along with Vitamins A and E from Coconut oil, Camellia Seed Oil and Cacao Butter. Our & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair Creme is a thicker cream, which is ultra-hydrating and absorbent but suited to more dehydrated skin or use as a night cream, providing ultimate repair and restoration.
  3. Glamorous Hands: Do not forget to give your hands some love. One of our favourite tricks for ensuring our hands are kept looking youthful is to lather them with coconut oil or olive oil or better still our & Velvet Coffee Body Butter. It is as easy as lathering the cream or oil onto your hands, popping on a pair of cotton gloves and waking up with ultra-hydrated and youthful hands.
  4. Gobble Up Your Glow: Our most effective internal glow generators in the cooler months include flaxseed oil, avocadoes, hemp seeds, chia seeds and coconut oil. These foods are abundant in fatty acids which work to nourish and hydrate the skin from the inside out.
  5. Drink In Your Glow: We need to be mindful of ensuring we have adequate fluid intake as the weather starts get cooler. However you can literally drink in a healthy glow. Carry a water bottle with you wherever you go, at the office have decanter filled with mint, ginger and lemon leaves and at home revel in herbal teas. Licorice, cleavers, calendula, burdock root are all wonderful for healing the skin and balancing hormones for a beautiful glow. They feature in No. 4 Golden Glow Beauty Tea. Our No. 5 White Chai Digestif Tea is also the perfect companion for cosy nights in.

Edible Beauty on the Fly - Must-Have Tips for Beautiful Skin on the Go

Long haul flights and aeroplane food are not often synonymous with gorgeous glowing holiday skin. We are here to provide you with ten easy ways to ensure you are glowing when you arrive at your beautiful destination and when you return to reality!

  1. Keep it Up – Travel is not a good enough reason to stop your basic skincare routine. Ensure you continue to cleanse, tone, apply serum and moisturise when you are on the go. Our & Edible Beauty on the Fly kit provides you with travel friendly skincare products which make this as easy as packing them into your carry-on bag.
  2. Spray Away – One of the easiest ways to prevent your skin becoming dehydrated and dull is using a hydrating mist. Ensure your mist is alcohol-free (to prevent further drying) and rich in antioxidant-rich fruits and botanicals (try our No. 2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist) to give you immediate radiance. For best results give yourself a spray every two hours. Your skin will be so thankful!
  3. Plump it Up – Our No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum is rich in antioxidants and wildcrafted Australian botanicals which work extra hard at protecting your skin from the oxidative damage that cabin air can cause. It has the added benefit of providing instant plumping action, being rich in Beta Glucan and Hyaluronic Acid which attracts 1,000 times its weight in water.
  4. Miracle Masks – Hydrating Masks provide instant radiance and nourishment, taking away from any lines, redness or irritation that creeps up on the face. Apply a hydrating mask such as & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair as a thick layer on the skin. Leave for 20 minutes and then remove with a washcloth or cotton wool. This mask works wonders at dissolving signs of any wine or chocolate that may have snuck into your holiday diet.
  5. Stay Hydrated – Hydration is the key to getting to your destination with a glow. Stay away from alcohol, coffee and sugar-laden drinks. Instead opt for pure water. Bring along a lemon or your favourite herbal tea and use these whilst on board for additional hydration. Ensure you maintain your “greens” intake when you’re on the plane. To ensure you get your veggies, bring along some chopped carrots, celery and cucumber sticks – they will stay fresh for at least four to five hours when on the go.
