A refreshing drink for your skin
During this season of heat and humidity, it’s important to stay hydrated. That means, drink 6-8 glasses (8 ounces each) of water each day. It also means you need to give your skin a drink as well. Before I offer my favorite “skin drink,” let me explain to you what happens to your skin during the summer.
We all know that stifling feeling when summer heat and humidity set in on Minnesota. You know, that sticky, dripping feeling, like you are in a shower when you’re not? Heat and humidity cause our bodies to sweat. When you perspire, your body loses water. That triggers oil production to protect your skin barrier from hydration loss, which then leads to a potential hydrogen (pH) battle. The pH balance of acidity and alkaline is one important aspect of your overall skin health. Our skin is normally acidic but with moisture loss, it can become more alkaline which can cause break outs, wrinkles and irritation.
Other summer factors can also influence our pH balance. Too much sun exposure, frequent washing and air pollution can also swing things out of whack. Add topical antibacterial products, detergents and cosmetics along with skin irritations from wearing masks, and this summer can be especially harsh on your skin’s health. That’s why staying hydrated is critical.
My go to skin drinks are the hydration sprays from Jane Iredale. Each spray is filled with the highest quality ingredients available, and when possible, are ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic Cosmetics certified.
1. POMMISST Hydration Spray is a refresher with pomegranate extract, a powerful antioxidant. It’s a UV protector that calms, soothes and aids in hydration. POMMISST hydrates, conditions and protects all skin types.
2. D2O Hydration Spray helps to hydrate and plump the skin cells. It has antiseptic properties, provides hydration, calms and soothes. D2O is great for normal to dry skin types.
3. Balance Hydration Spray is formulated specifically to help balance skin’s oil production and pH. It uses orange essential oil, orange peel extract, grapefruit peel extract and algae extract calm and feed the skin. Balance is good for normal to oily skin types.
4. Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray is a soothing with a lemony scent. Ideal for all skin types, this spray is formulated to hydrate, condition and protect your skin. It also helps minimize oiliness and the appearance of pores.
I love the performance, coverage, application and texture of these sprays. I keep a mini Lemon Grass Love in my bag, so I can use it on the go. As a licensed seller of Jane Iredale products, shopping through Lustre will ensure you get authentic and quality skin products every time.
