4 Tips for Natural Summer Skincare
6/9/2011 1:05:54 PM

Hello, everyone! I am the new Communications Intern at Weleda, here to help you survive the summer heat in style, with my first blog! The transition to summer can be invigorating for the mind and body. Here are a few simple solutions to ensure your skin feels just as good as your spirit as the summer rolls in. Be a natural beauty this summer!

1. Lighten Up! As the weather warms our facial skin becomes less susceptible to over drying as the body begins to produce natural oils more regularly. To maintain a perfect balance of moisture without leaving the skin feeling greasy, switch to one of our facial lotions in place of our richer day creams. Perfect for those in their 20s, our Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion contains jojoba seed oil and soothing witch hazel to support your skin’s natural protection against drying elements. Our Wild Rose Smoothing Lotion is a great choice for those in their 30s to help smooth fine lines and nourish skin. 

2. Refresh! As much as we love the warmth, the summer heat can leave the face feeling oily and drab. For a refreshing pick-me-up during the day, combine one part Weleda Refining Toner with one part water in a spray bottle – mist lightly to cool and refresh the skin. For oil and sweat control throughout the day, try applying the toner with a cotton pad periodically. It will help refresh and clarify by removing pore-clogging residue and bacteria. Weleda’s Citrus Deodorant also comes in handy when the thermometer starts to skyrocket. “Throw a travel-size Citrus Deodorant in your bag and spritzs this non-aerosol spray throughout the day as needed to invigorate, refresh and eliminate any body odor,” says Patricia Pol, the holistic skin-care expert and esthetician, who by the way, gives the most amazing facials at our spa in Palisades, NY.

3. Deep Condition! Summer typically means trips to the pool and the beach where chlorine and salt water can wreak havoc on the hair. Try a deep-conditioning treatment a few times a week after sun exposure or swimming by applying Weleda Rosemary Hair Oil throughout the lengths and ends. Use on dry hair and leave on for about 20 minutes prior to shampooing; or for a truly intensive treatment, leave in overnight and shampoo out in the morning. “The deep-conditioning properties will restore moisture, soften split ends and add radiant shine,” says Pol.

4. Soothe and Replenish! A day in the sun can be trying on the skin and nothing is better than an all-natural body soother. Weleda Sea Buckthorn Oil is the ideal post-sun skin soother that features Biodynamic® sea buckthorn seed oil, packed with essential fatty acids that replenish vital moisture. It also features pro-vitamin A and vitamins E and C, which soften and protect the skin. “This product protects from free-radical damage and saturates the body in the aroma of sun-drenched essential oils from mandarins, oranges and grapefruits,” says Pol. And for delicate face and neck, try Weleda Pomegranate Firming Serum, which contains soothing organic aloe vera juice and pomegranate juice, rich in antioxidants, to help soothe skin and fight sun damage. It’s like a fruit cocktail for the skin--refreshing and healthy and perfect for summer.

I keep my skin looking its best during the summer months by drinking lots of water and using a lighter moisturizer with SPF. I also make sure to use a gentle cleanser, especially at night before going to sleep.

I drinks lots of water & coconut water to hydrate internally. I also juice vegetables & detox for a week. But externally I use Weleda's Day Cream when I'm out in the sun & the night cream before I go to bed. People always ask me why my skin looks so great & I ALWAYS refer them to Weleda!! It's worth every penny because Weleda is the only product I trust on my face.

speaking as a mom… there is another type of “skincare” that has nothing to do with my face! I am speaking of the sweetest skin of all… my baby’s bottom. Now granted… she is 6 now and no longer in diapers, but this will hold true for my next one as well. There is nothing, nothing, nothing like summer sunshine to keep baby bottom skin healthy and beautiful! Washing soft cotton diapers and hanging then in the summer breeze freshens them, sanitizes them, and makes them safe and perfect for diapering… thus keeping baby’s skin beautiful. Additionally, letting baby go diaper-free in that same summer air? Priceless for keeping skin dry, aerated and healthy! That fresh warm air helps to keep baby’s disposition as sunny as the sky! And tell me – what is more beautiful than zero rash, zero redness, zero irritation! Healthy baby skin is BEAUTIFUL!!!

i grew up "free" as some folks would say. i ran outside naked in the rain as a child (great benefit of living in the country!) and never missed an opportunity to sink my toes into the cool, soft mud. this energy followed me into adulthood, where i embraced joy as my favorite cosmetic. what keeps my skin beautiful in the summertime? a few simple things. 1- nature. there is nothing in the world like slathering your hair with oil (the calendula baby oil is heaven), twisting it into a bun, and walking in the sunshine for a natural deep conditioning or sitting on the sand right where the water washes up and rubbing your legs with the wet sand as a natural exfoliator. getting the ripest, juiciest papaya you can find and mixing it with a little sugar for the most awesome face scrub. eating yourself silly on the bounty of the season - melons, berries, succulent fruits that transfer all of their energy, hydration and antioxidants to your body! the summer sun also has the ability to even out skin tones and force you to drink more water... win-win! 2- simplicity. everything on my vanity, EVERYTHING, does double duty. my citrus deodorant is an underarm freshener, a perfume, and sits in the refrigerator to use as my first line of defense if i get a migraine. my calendula oil is for my hair, my face (PERFECT to use at night... as you sleep, your skin drinks in nutrients and when you wake, your skin will feel like silk!), my ratanhia toothpaste? for teeth and as an occasional face mask when i am too oily (i tell this to my pregnant clients all the time when hormones are making their skin go crazy!) simple, simple, simple. 3rd and final thing... as i said before, JOY is my favorite cosmetic. in the summertime, the sun makes your skin glow and your soul shine. you are able to relax into the warmth of the season and allow it to massage your muscles from the outside in. be naked in the sunshine if you can!!! take advantage of the season and get outside! see friends, do yoga on your lawn! go to a waterpark and act like a child! the joy within will radiate to your face, and the glow you achieve cannot be ignored, cannot be duplicated and actually cannot be purchased for it is a culmination of ALL things beautiful! have a wonderful, joyful and delicious summer yall! :)

I carry a stainless steel water bottle in the car & at work to stay hydrated. I wash my face in the morning followed by sunscreen on face, neck & chest: 15spf for a regular work day or 30spf if I'm going to be outside more. I also put spf 15 on my arms (I live in Florida, the sun is brutal). At night I ALWAYS wash my face and put on an eye cream & a moisturizer on face, neck & chest. And, 2 times a week, I'll do a special treatment- a scrub, a mask, etc.

I got a huge bottle of lime-scented cologne in Turkey, transferred some to a spray bottle and keep it in the refrigerator. I spray it all over myself to cool down. The scent, cooling mist, and evaporation cool my body quickly.

1. Hydrate from the inside out with adequate clean non chemical laden water and 1 electrolyte beverage a day, more if super active as it helps get the water into the cells easier. Healthy organic food from local sources! 2. Natural sunscreen as chemicals absorb into skin ;-( and appropriate sun protection: Hat, visor, and light clothing for extended periods in the sun. 3. Clean and Tone with Weleda's new facial line!! I clean with a clarisonic face system. 4. Exfoliate body 1x/week with Weleda body scrub (current favorite is anti-cellulite birch), followed by applying Birch oil after every shower and bath to re-hydrate. I apply oil at night so it doesn't burn me in the sun in the day. 5. Laugh, hang with friends and enjoy a beautiful, blessed life. Smiles are always more attractive than frowns. People can feel your energy when they are near you, so your body can be smokin' hot but the frown or negative energy will push them away.

Stay happy and healthy! I wear minimal makeup in the summer, drink lots of water, moisturize dry skin areas with Weleda Aloe Vera Body Lotion. Cleanse with Gentle Cleansing Milk . And... I try to keep a smile on my face! Be beautiful inside and out, that's the definition of true beauty.

During the summer i wash my face only once, in the morning, and follow up with face lotion with spf 30. I put that on my face, neck, collar bones, and chest. I also use welda's eye rose eye cream. I put that under and on my lids and I also put some on my lips. After that I put chap stick with spf on my lips. I wear sunglasses every day. I also try to wear a hat when i can remember it so that my scalp doesn't burn. I drink water from an alluminum bottle throughout the day & I eat a lot of fruits ( mostly clementines, organic when i can ). I notice when I eat a more plant based diet, my skin looks better. After a day in the sun I like to put aloe vera all over my skin, including my face. I exfoliate my face & body atleast twice a week. At night I drink either hot green or white tea because I live near a city so I feel safer knowing that I am intaking antioxidant since there are so many pollutants. And to save the best for last, yoga, which is almost like a detoxification for my whole being.

I always use sunscreen on my face, but have also started applying sunscreen to my neck and exposed chest area. I don't have any wrinkles there yet, and I would like to prevent that in the future. I also always have lip gloss on hand. It is an instant pick me up for my face!

I am pretty careless with my skin regimen so I have use great products that pick up the slack and Weleda's pomegranate line has been a godsend! I use the pomegranate because I am 50 and it has been keeping time at bay. I will reapply when I am feeling stressed and my face feels tight- the moisturizer is so soothing!

Homemade face mask/scrub loaded with cucumbers, yogurt and honey! Cucumber is a mostly-water veggie and can seriously hydrate the body and skin. The honey helps to retain the water leaving a moisturized feeling all day long. For even more of a cool down after a full day of sun, add a drop of aloe vera gel to the mask. Don't forget that cute floppy hat for extended periods of sun exposure! Weleda products and homemade remedies are my number one choice for skin/body care all year round.

I keep my skin healthy during the summer by not wearing makeup, using moisturizer and night creme daily, and staying OUT of the sun as much as possible (wearing hats when I'm in the sun and using sunscreen). because of these habits i am 34 but ppl often mistake me for much younger :)

I start my mornings alternating b/w a 3-in-one cleanser (cleanse, tone, and make-up remover) and exfoliator, followed by moisturizing with Retinol and Alpha-Hydroxi based products. I only use foundation if I'm going out, and use sunscreen daily in the summers (b/c I always go at least in the yard to check and take care of my gardens). After coming in from the heat, I apply more moisturizer. At night I cleanse again and use a Retinol based moisurizer for night time recovery. Twice a week I use a treatment such as a masque for my face and my eyes. At age 55 I'm rather pleased with how healthy my skin looks as I try to age gracefully. I use as little make-up as possible: liner, mascara, foundation and lipstick. I like my skincare regime but also like to switch up the brands or lines about every 6 months.

Summer is the perfect time to break out the hats, scarves and suncreen to keep my skin glowing! I love to be outdoors, but I also love a dewy complexion. I use a daily SPF tinted moisturizer and I LOVE the Pomegranate Firming Day Cream, to keep the moisture in, and the free-radicals OUT! At night, I use the serum to work at keeping my skin fresh while I'm catching plenty of ZzZzZzs. Lastly, I put on a smile. Somehow that makes my skin look better, too!

I drink a lot of water, it's so important for the body.. skin and hair. I use sunscreen and moisturizer twice a day. I can tell when my skin is feeling dryer, that I need to up my water intake.. reduce the coffee helps. Products from Weleda's would really help me out!

When it comes to skincare, I practice Loving Self-Care. I take the time to care and pamper myself: I give myself facials once a week, I make regular use of mud masks, I use only organic and biodynamic products on my skin, like Weleda. I get lots of vitamin D from the sun, which not only makes me happy, but gives my skin a nice tan and glow. I use oils to moisterize in the heat, as I find it lighter on my skin, and to keep my acne-prone skin clear, I fuel my body and my mind with nourishing things, and hydrate myself throughout the day. I think positive thoughts, and keep stress at a minimum. I meditate and do yoga. I make sure to get enough sleep. Clear, beautiful skin comes from within :)

Summer Skin Care: 1. 2-3 times bath is extremely important 2. 4-5 ltrs of water intake is a must 3. Wearing a sunscreen 20-30 minutes before going out in the Sun should be followed as a ritual Now a few special tips: 1. Before taking bath, apply some cocoanut oil all over body as it's a great Sun screen itself 2. Apply some hommade body pack cum scrub (after the oil application) made of Almond, Gram, Orange skin and 2-3 spoonful of rice powder. Leave it for 10 minutes. 3. Rub it off and take a bath with cold water. This special bath will keep you refreshed for a long day. 4. Apply bay leaves' skin toner (Prepared by boiling 20 bay leaves in 2 ltr of water for 20 minutes in seam) after the bath. 5. Apply sun screen before going out. Make a mixture of talcom powder and conch shell powder (pure) and apply over the sun screen already worn. It gives another good layer of shield against the sun. 6. After returning home, apply a paste of Green mango and lemon skin over exposed areas to remove tan. Take a bath after 20 minutes with cold water. 7. Apply some ice cubes to reduce sun burn 8. Use a cocoanut oil + Olive oil + Vitamin E oil mixture for hair at night - massage well with lukewarm oil. This will improve hair texture damaged by teh Sun. 9. Before washing off next day, apply a pack of plain yoghurt, medical glycerin, highly ripe banana and leave for 1-2 hours - the wash off with a mild shampoo

I have never understood makeup. Why so many women cover up their natural beauty is puzzling. That joyful laugh line, that perfect freckle. Your face! That gorgeously unique face we never really get to see - show yourself! Skin is always best when it's naked and breathing. I eat tons of fresh fruits and veggies and plenty of raw oils to nourish my skin from the inside out. I spend my free time outdoors, with living things, in the fresh air, breathing, walking, swimming, smiling, basking in the sun! When i know my skin will be exposed to the sun for long periods, I use enough sunscreen so that I don't burn and damage my skin but mostly, I let it breathe! Every morning and evening I lather my body with Weleda Pomegranate Body Oil and use the Pomegranate day Cream on my face. I repeat after swimming and sun exposure to replenish, nourish and protect. Nature knows best!

Summer is a time to feel less burdened, free, and happy. I believe that summer is all about feeling comfortable in your skin. I don’t like to feel weighted down by the products that I use. After I take a shower I rub light sesame oil all over, including my face. Oils are able to moisturize better than heavy creams and lotions that melt off during the hot summer days. In the mornings I spray Neutrogena’s ultra sheer body mist sunscreen in 45+ all over, including my face. It is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores. I love this product because is very light, is waterproof, when dry it gives a natural glow/shimmer, and has a light smell. I always recommend using sunscreen to protect from the sun’s harmful cancer causing UVB rays and UVA rays, slowing skin's degradation and formation of wrinkles. When wearing makeup in the summer, I try and keep it as minimal as possible with a strong impact. Lip and cheek stains are very light, have lasting power, and come in many vibrant colors. Bare Minerals makeup offers a wide range of coverage, is natural, and very comfortable to wear in the summer. Mascara is my number one go to for a rested appearance. A way to feel and look your best is to eat many fruits and vegetables. Getting a variety of fruits and vegetables gives you the opportunity to eat the many different vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Whenever fresh produce is available you should take advantage! Water intake in the summer is always higher than during the winter because thirst is more obvious. Consistent water intake in important throughout the year is very important for a clear mind and healthy living. The most important part of amazing summer skin is to not take yourself too seriously. Every day I remind myself to smile because it leads to happiness. Always remember the small things in life, and remember to be grateful. A smiling face is much more beautiful no matter the amount of makeup or time spent perfecting it.

I get out in the sun during summer! That keeps my skin beautiful because I am healthier and happier. I also use a sunscreen EVERY MORNING all year 'round and keep some with me on my purse or in my car for re-apps throughout the day. I drink green juices and get a lot of massage. Here in the Midwest I don't want to let a sunny day go by without soaking in as much as I can!

Use the calendula baby oil for your face as a moisturizer. I have found it comparable to the French cosmetic line sold at Bloomingdales. The price is much better! Love this and when I use it or the French line(afraid to use the name) I get complements on my beautiful, glowing skin-by strangers. Love the smell-and the results. I'm past 50 and have dry sensitive skin. Love this stuff-thanks baby!!!

1) Sleep is very important. 2) Drinking water - I like to squeeze fresh lemon in it or eat watermelon cold. 3) Moisturize with a naturally good lotion such as Calendula Baby, this works great for my son and I at night after our bath. I also use skin food on the rougher areas if required. 4) Limit sun exposure and use natural/organic sunscreen SPF 30 when I'm outside. LADIES & GENTLEMEN LISTEN UP . . . you can still get a wonderful tan while using sunscreen, even SPF 30, mind you it will take a few days depending on your skin type to achieve this, but it is much better than burning yourself or tanning unprotected outside. 5) Your body is supposed to sweat, so use a natural deoderant. I find that different food and drink effects everyones body differently. Coffee makes my sweat smell, so I rarely drink it. 6) Take it easy. Try your best to plan ahead so you don't get stressed out too much. It's worse in the heat. So leave earlier. Less stress = better skin :)

I have combination skin. In the summer, I switch to a stronger facial cleanser than I use in the winter to keep breakouts away from my T-zone. I live in the Southwest so I use sunscreen all year around - I kick the SPF up to 30 in the summer months. I drink lots of water - flavoring it with sliced strawberries, mint or cucumber to jazz it up so I won't be tempted to grab a coke!

In the summer I make sure to drink at least 64oz water each day as it really helps my skin to look clear. 8 hours of sleep is a must too! I keep my skin looking it's best during the summer by making and using my own natural facial scrub/mask. It is so simple to make all you need are: 1 egg (lightly beaten) 1 Tbsp Whole Milk 1 Tbsp Unbleached Flour 1/2 Tsp Olive Oil 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt Combine all these ingredients in a bowl. Wash your face with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Apply mixture all over your face, avoiding the eyes!. Let it sit on your skin for about 20 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. When I'm out in the sun I make sure to wear my sunglasses to prevent squinting and getting wrinkles around my eyes. Sunscreen is a must and a nice big shady hat :)

My skin tends to get oily during the summer and I have found that using the Calendula Baby Shampoo and Body Wash really cleanses my skin. I like to follow up with the Calendula baby lotion for my legs after shaving. Drinking lots of fluids is great as well and I especially like the combination of a few drops bitters to club soda - very refreshing! And of course, never forget the sunscreen:)

I have dry skin, and need Vitamin D. So during the summer I try to make sure I'm in the sun for short periods of time [30 minutes to an hour] every day. The key is just making sure I stay moisturized, with good body lotion, and wear sunscreen [in my facial moisture]. This way I can enjoy the goodness of summer sun while keeping my skin healthy :-)

I keep my skin looking it's best during summer by eating right, juicing regularly, taking supplements, and drinking as much water with squeezed lemon as possible. Lemon juice is a natural astringent and it also cleanses the liver. Which is great because, beauty starts from within.

I have always believed that if you are healthy on the inside it shows on the outside. I drink tons of lemon water, plenty of fruits and veggies, and keep up with my exercise programming of running at least 3 times weekly. Nothing like getting a good sweat on! I have always washed my face twice daily, but I find in the summer you sure don't want to go to bed with dirty sweaty skin, it causes nothing but problems!

I live in Texas so I stay out of the intense mid-day sun, wear a wide-brimmed hat when going outside, daily drink lots of refreshing and skin feeding antioxidant rich green, white, herbal and red iced teas, and keep my year long skin pampering regimen and add spritzing water infused with lavender onto my face. My sandal wearing feet need extra care to keep the sightly rough dry skin off, so I soak them in essential oil infused water, scrub them, and moisturize them frequently.

My favorite tips for summer are: 1.) Spray Weleda citrus deodorant on my upper body to cool & refresh. 2.) Hot bath before bedtime. Add 1 cup Epsom salts & several drops of any Weleda massage oil & 1/2 cup baking soda. This is a detoxing treatment for your lymph, skin, muscles & very relaxing!

I've been using the Weleda Wild Rose Cleansing lotion as a face wash and I find it amazing for my skin.I was using Vichy and used to have breakouts but it's almost like since I started using the Weleda Cleansing lotion my skin has been balanced by what's in it.I haven't had a breakout since I started using it six months ago.I tend to get Rosacea from time to time,and would love to know if there's a product from Weleda that could help with it,I've heard that Licorice helps but I don't have any of that growing in my garden! :)

The fact I sweat a lot on my face is an advantage in the summer, as I keep hydrated - but I also hv 2 re-apply sunscreen often. I wear hats/visors - Use a parasol! Use fans to dry my face. Drink a lot of H20 - Bring along little bottle of cologne to help cool me off @ temples/wrists. Cut deluxe cellular paper handtowels into squares to use to blot my face (No lint!) Bt wd like 2 find antiperspirant 4 face....

I like to combine a natural sunscreen with a tinted moisturizer for my face for a light and dewy look in the summer. I also apply a salt spray to my hair for beachy waves, which allows me to give my hair a rest from the blowdryer. Because I wear sandals and flip flops almost daily in the summer, I scrub my feet with a pumice stone every morning.

There are a few things I do in the summer for my skin. Drinking lots of water is key to good health and hydration not only inside but out! If you go swimming in either a chlorine pool or the ocean, be sure to use a good moisturizer. I love weleda sea buckthorn cream and/or oil.The product is not too heavy so it does not clog pores and has a pleasant summer scent! I also apply these products after showering. AI nice light face cream is good for the face so it doesn't clog pores either, and an SPF product when needed (my biggest problem is the nose so I use zinc) and also a good spf product for the lips. You need to reapply the lip balm often because when you drink or lick your lips it comes off easily. Most of all get out there and have fun and enjoy the nice weather and soak some sun for the vitamin D, while it's still free! I have not yet found a good deodorant that has been helpful and I tend to switch around the products I use so they are more effective! Also, creaming your legs is a must after shaving, which is something I do daily! Have a great summer everyone!

I love being outside playing with my dogs or poolside and the number one thing in my book for skin care is plenty of green tea infused sun block. I love getting a tan but with skin cancer on the rise just cant take that risk and green tea is awsome for protecting the skin and reduce DNA damage to the cells. Also drinking plenty of green tea also helps the skin to be protected.And for the lips plenty of lip balm :)

During the summer I keep a spritzer bottle of Weleda toner in the refrigerator for use after I wash my face. I also switch from Wild Rose Body Lotion to Aloe Vera Body Lotion as it’s refreshing and light. And also keep on hand Burn Care for insect bits – the best thing ever to ease the itch.

First and foremost staying hydrated daily is crucial to both your skin and your bodily functions! While good quality water itself is great - you also need to be sure you're getting enough potassium & electrolytes! Consider ReCharge or Coco waters as they will provide what it needed without all the artificial coloring & flavoring that is used in many of the well known sports drinks, like Gatorade! (Cut back on sodas, caffeinated and alcoholic beverages too as they affect hydration levels.) Eating a healthy diet is good too, as a lifetime of poor quality food affects the whole body, including the largest organ we have - our skin! As to sunscreens - if you wear mineral makeups many of them have built in sunscreen effects in the minerals themselves. Look for natural brands such as Aubrey Organics and the like, as they don't have ingredients that can harm your health. Always go paraben free and you'll avoid the estrogenic effects of these chemical based preservatives! Last but not least wearing hats with wide brims will help your facial skin stay more youthful too. Years of deep tanning are not a good thing in the long run, unless you like the leathery look! Being over 50 and looking more like I'm in my late thirties shows that I've made the right choices over the years. Hopefully more young women will do the same for themselves :)

Keep a bathroom safe jar filled with baking soda in your shower and when your hair is gummed up from various facial tanning lotions, pour your regular shampoo into your hand and add around one tablespoon of baking soda to it rub together in your hands and work through hair rinse and re-shampoo without the baking soda to remove any build-up and leave your hair as nature intended.

Use sunscreen - a natural one if possible and hydrate both inside and out. Drink lots of water, eat watermelon (delicious!) and cucumber, fruits that have a large percentage of water. Use natural oil moisturizers like Weleda. I love the Sea Buckthorn Oil and body wash. Citrusy and clean and exotic! Replenish with electrolyte to balance and to help the inner glow shine through. Love your skin and it will love you back!

After reading thru the other comments I am fiiled with awe at all the great suggestions! Great minds think alike as I already do some of the these things as well. I do not want to submit a duplicate answer so I will rack my brain and come up with one that I use that has not been mentioned yet. I will say that I am accustomed to preparing myself and my skin for Summer as I grew up in Florida and live in Cali now so I have had my share of the Sun and hot weather. I love it, but must respect it,and also my body and face. Lip moisturizer is a must for me and I will not leave the house without it! I am not afraid to go " Sliver Screen Glamour Girl" style and wear a hat and big sunglasses to protect my skin and that sensitive eye area. I also drink tons of water and stay moisturized.

Keeping your skin hydrated is definitely of great importance. One thing I have noticed with many people who swim in pools is that they don't shower afterwards. I believe it is KEY to get those pool chemicals off your skin asap. We see what it can do to your hair.........imagine what it is doing to your skin :(!! Sunscreen at ALL TIMES............and exfoliate and moisturize are keys to keeping skin looking good as well!!!
By: shannonm

My best advise for keeping your skin looking its best all summer long is to drink lots of water, keep a moisturizer with at least a 15 SPF on your face anytime you're outside, use sun block whenever you're going to have exposure to the sun, and apply lotion before bed and after showers.

I love swimming at the pool or hitting the beach but the combination of sand, salt, and chlorine can wreak havoc on my hair! My trick is to rake a little conditioner through it (focusing on the ends) before heading out. The dual benefit is that my hair retains its moisture and after swimming (whether in the pool or in the ocean) it's much less tangled. I have blonde highlights, so throwing a little conditioner on them beforehand really preserves their color and leaves my hair soft and manageable.

I try to stay out of the sun but admit I love getting a little summer glow. Being in my early 30's I am starting to see those little creepy crawly lines make their way onto my skin. Nightly I use vitamin E oil carefully around my eyes after I wash with a pH balanced soap then use an olive oil face cream. Mornings I always use a paraben and chemical free spf 15 facial moisturizer on my face and neck. Water water water throughout the day is the #1 best way to keep ahead of the curve.

Always wear a floppy hat when your outside. I also make sure that I use sunscreen and look for the shade. Water is important and so is watching how long you are in the sun.

I rinse my face with water in the morning but avoid using soap if I can, then i make sure to use a moisturizer with SPF before applying makeup. Then throughout the day, I blot oil, especially on hot and active days. This keeps me from caking my face with powder. Keep it simple! Every week, I exfoliate to scrub away the dead skin to get a glow. I moisturize with a lighter lotion in the summer to avoid getting an oil slick, but remember that you have to still use moisturizer so your face doesn't overproduce oil to make up for it!

I drink 2 liters of water daily. Sugary drinks such as Gatorade actually dehydrate the body. When I need to replenish electrolytes, I drink young coconut water. I use Weleda's Seabuckthorn Oil and then mist with Orange water. For cleansing I use Weleda's Rose facial cleanser which feels like going to an organic spa! I don't miss a beat and at 43 I'm always receiving complements on my skin.

I would like to add to my previous post that I think laughter is the absolute best part of a good skin routine. There is nothing more beautiful than the rosy glow of someone who is laughing. And I think a few little laugh lines on a mature adult show a life well lived. I turn 29 this week and my skin is just beginning to need a bit more care. My birthday hope this year is that I will gain a few laugh lines over the next 30.

I live in the hot desert of Arizona and I drink a lot of water, and keep my skin exfoliated and moisturized. I really love Weleda's Sea Buckthorn Body Oil! My legs really sexy with this oil! It's all natural too! I also put a bit in my hair before I put on my swim cap when I go swimming in my pool. It is just a wonderful product you can use all over the body.

During the summer, I feel like my legs and arms need extra moisure and attention. I use coconut oil and the Weleda Sea Buckthorn oil. I was introduced to the Weleda Sea Buckthorn oil by my sister-in-law. She works at a health food store and I've been using it ever since I received it as a gift. I also have subsribed on amazon.com to receive the Weleda Skin Food every two months. I have problems with eczema and this product is amazing and I love the subscription service! 15% off and free shipping? It doesn't get any better :) I've also found that rose water is a refreshing toner to mist on after washing my face.

The best thing anyone can do for their skin is drink water, apply sunscreen and wash their face 2-3 times per day. At night I apply moisturizer to my face, and body oil (my preference is Arnica - but I haven't tried all of the different types yet) on any part of my body that has been exposed to the sun. It is also important to seriously limit one's intake of alcohol, nicotine and any other toxic substances. You really are what you eat... and smoke. A toxic free lifestyle will ultimately do wonders for you skin, smile and spirit.

During the warm months, I've always spritzed my face all day with a combo of spring water and some sort of hydrating strained fruit nectar, like apricot, peach or whatever. If you keep it in the fridge at home or work and spray multiple times, you stay refreshed, smell great and your skin literally glows. Try it, you'll be amazed. I 've been told I look years younger than my actual age and I'm sure it's from hydrating all the time :)

I like to keep my beauty routine as simple as possible especially in the hot summer months. My beauty secret is coconut (coconut water and organic coconut oil), which has a lot of benefits for your skin but also your health. I like to start from within, staying hydrated with water and when I can coconut water. I include more fruit into my diet as much as possible and make fruit smoothies (on hot summer days frozen fruit is the best). When you're healthy on the inside, the better you will feel and show through on the outside. When taking care of my skin, I use natural/organic products to cleanse/exfoliate my skin as well as using a moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated. I always use a natural mineral sunscreen when I am outside to protect my skin from aging. I use my secret beauty product, organic coconut oil on my face at night and I wake up with super soft hydrated skin. I notice when I keep things simple and natural my skin looks and feels amazing. Keep it simple, keep it natural, take care yourself inside and out and your skin with thank you by, looking beautiful.

I always wear sunscreen, drink lots of water and try to get plenty of rest. It was great to read others tips! Thanks for sharing the good ideas. I have discovered Weleda's "Sea Buckthorn Body Oil" it is wonderful. I also love the Pomegranate hand lotion. I can see why it won an award. My face looks good for my age, but my hands have been hard working and Weleda's Pomegranate hand lotion has been a real improvement for them.

I stay hydrated by drinking a LOT of water, misting my face with water infused with rose oil and using a light moisturizer for my face and body. I avoid a lot of sun exposure, but make sure to get at least 10-15 min daily before adding sun protection. I wear a big straw hat to shade my face and carry a shawl to cover up.

Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! I also like to take fresh grapes from the fridge, crush them and use them as a natural exfoliator, so refreshing. I just started to use your Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream and I love the smell of it, very relaxing to fall asleep to at night. I always carry my travel size Refining Toner everywhere I go, so I can freshen up whenever needed.

As important as sunscreen is, I tend to forget it a lot before leaving some mornings. I tend to focus on drinking lots of water and eating more fruits and veggies that leave me feeling refreshed inside and out (avocado, grapes, tomatoes and watermelon just to name a few). And if my skin is feeling a little damaged from the sun I'll slather some honey and Extra Virgin olive oil on as a mask for about 30 minutes and it leaves my skin soft and soothed and glowing.

My first tip is to make sure to protect your precious skin by ALWAYS wearing sunscreen! It doesn't matter if you're out in the sun for 5 minutes or 5 hours. Also, keep your skin hydrated because it gets thirsty out there in the heat! Have some facial and body spray handy to cool off. Thanks! freemarie20 at hotmail dot com

My first trick of good looking summer skin is to stay hydrated. I drink plenty of water. When I'm not in the sun for long, I will wear a natural make-up skin tint with some SPF. When I'm out in the sun longer, I wear a mineral sun block on my face, and then I pat down loose, natural powder on top of that. It cuts down on the shine, sets the sun block, and adds some tint. At night I wash my face with your cleansing cream, and I dry my face with a washcloth only for my face. An aesthetician gave me that tip about the washcloth. You never want to rub a used body towel on your face. That will redistribute body oil to your face and lead to blocked pores.

My tip, which sounds almost contradictive of summer is to actually limit your time outside. Sunscreens are great but too much sun exposure, no matter how much sunscreen you put on, will eventually damage your skin's sensitive nature.

My husband says he likes it that my v-neck area is not all leathery and full of sun freckles. I do too. Seeing too many women in v-necks & low-cuts with leathery wrinkly sun damage is not pretty.

Drink water! You won't believe how it helps your skin. Then amke sure you always take off your make-up. Don't go to sleep with it on. Wash your face at least once a day with your favorite cleanser or soap. All these tips really work. I'm 48 and it has helped my skin.(Especially the water!)

Eat lots of red, orange and yellow fruits and veggies like carrots, red peppers and apricots. The vitamin A gives your skin a glow from the inside. Astaxanthin supplements also fortify your skin against sun exposure and help you get your glow on =)

When I'm in heavily air-conditioned places, or - most importantly - on airplanes, I carry cleansing wipes with added moisturizer. I like St Ives Moisture Rich Facial Wipes, but if Weleda sold facial wipes, I would buy those of course! I use these to keep a fresh face while replenishing the moisture lost in these dry environments. It's so important on airplanes - trust me! -Angela K

I am all about doing a twice a week natural facial care night. I use natural ingredients (baking soda and lemon exfoliate) and then a honey mask, followed by the wild rose facial lotion. It's honestly one of the only things I take time for myself to do from taking care of my little one, and boy does it refresh me!

I use the lighter rose mosturizing lotion on my face, make sure I stay well hydrated by drinking lots of water and a combination of chilled green tree which is full of anti-oxidants. Then I like to spray on a spritzer, like Evian water. I also make sure I eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. After showering, I slather on my favourite, which is the Rose Body Lotion or the Rose Body Oil and I make sure my feet/heels and knees get a good rub of that oil!!

I like to use a light natural cleansing milk and keep my routine simple in the summer. I drink lots of water and eat lots of high antioxidant fruit and veggies to repair damage. (I wear a hat to prevent damage; I don't trust sunscreen.) And I love Weleda's sea buckthorn lotion on my heels when they get dry from wearing sandals or roughed up on the bottom of a pool.

With global warming, I hope everyone is aware of all of the changes around them-the sun is hotter, droughts are everywhere and the ozone diminishing. With all of this in mind, it is very important to protect our skin. I became ill with a bizarre skin condition 11 years ago. It has been horrific! Since then, I have converted to all organic skin and hair care products. My tips for the best natural skin care are as follows:1)use an organic sunscreen and donne a large brimmed hat to help keep the sun off your face, 2)drink plenty of water and eat a lot of fruits and veggies-staying away from processed foods, 3)get plenty of rest, when you're tired, your skin shows it, and 4)moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. I have combo skin, so cleansing at least twice a day works for me. In addition to my organic skin care regimen, I also take organic supplements which support healthy skin, hair and nails. Have a great summer everyone! chow!

I have a no-fail routine when it comes to making my skin look its best during the summer. Every morning before I shower I use a technique called "dry brushing". All you need is a natural bristle brush and 5 minutes. Starting at the soles of your feet, brush upwards with long firm strokes. Always be sure to brush towards your heart, and be gentle in sensitive areas! After you are finished dry brushing, shower like normal, then apply Weleda's "Sea Buckthorn Body Oil" all over your skin. This routine exfoliates skin, stimulates the lymphatic system, gets your circulation going, and leaves your skin incredibly replenished and silky soft. Give it a try!

Having children, very busy children at that, who want to go outside all the time, I mustn't forget to put sunscreen on (and on my kids too of course). I think the best way to keep skin looking and feeling good is to drink lots of water, have a good healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, ample amount of sleep at night and last but not least, regular use of sunscreen (and good night time cream as well).

During the summer, I keep my skin looking its best by staying well hydrated. I drink plenty of spring water throughout the day. Coconut water is also great because it's loaded with important electrolytes that the body needs to replace after sweating. And I ALWAYS wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. I apply before sun exposure and am very diligent about reapplying every 60 to 80 minutes :-)

I can't stay away from the ocean in Summer and when the beach day comes to an end, I make use of Nature's best exfoliates: salt and sand.

Then I follow up with a Weleda's Sea Buckthorn body oil and Rosemary hair oil to moisturize my new skin.

Keeping active and sweating helps to detox your skin. In the summer, like taking advantage of the great weather by power walking (or lightly jogging) late in the afternoon. In a sense, I'm killing two birds with one stone by getting my workout in and getting to witness a beautiful sunset.

Sometimes all our skin needs is some natural hydration by way of a cool soak in the tub and by drinking lots of water... the way God intended it to be. Yes, we all need the help of Weleda products, but once in a while it is best to just go the natural way to keep our integumentary system alive and clean.

I spend most of my summers outdoors, enjoying all the activities that are at their best from June to September. I love swimming, hiking and parties outside, but sometimes those activities are hard on my skin. I keep my skin looking its best during the summer by frequently applying aloe vera lotion, like Weleda Aloe Vera body lotion. It soothes skin damage caused by the sun and keeps my skin looking and smelling great, so I can get back outside!

I use my rose moisturizer on my face & neck EVERYDAY. I can put sunscreen over it and never have to worry about breaking out from the sunscreen. I drink tons of filtered water & keep some in small atomizer with a very fine spray in my purse. I spritz it on & then place a tissue over my face (especially my T zone) gently press it all over my face - never rubbing. 1st thing in the morning it sets my makeup and later it removes oil without removing makeup or adding layers of powder. keeps my old oily skin glowy, smooth & happy!

I am always in the sun it seems, either in the garden or in the pool or just out running errands. I tend to tan very easily, but then my skin gets pretty dry. I use a face cleaner as well as shave cream in the summer that moisturizes and cleanses without stripping my face. I also will apply a light lotion if needed, but not very often. I find that staying clean shaven helps too.

My best tip is to get sunscreen developed specifically for your skin type. This is terribly important for me because I have really oily skin. I was able to find a great one that doesn't break me out or even make my T zone any shinier. I skip any other moisturizer during the day and I am protected and hydrated.

For me its all about exfoliation of the dead/dry skin to reveal the new soft skin and then keeping it soft with a light lotion, preferably with a SPF of 15 or higher. I also only use organic/natural products on my skin and eat a healthy organic vegetarian diet. And finally, lots and lots and lots of H2O!

Keep your toner or rosewater in the fridge! It feels so good to spritz on during the day... like a mini-cold shower!

Slather on sunscreen every morning and then be sure to remove it every evening! I shower before bed every night to clean all the dirt, oil & sunscreen off my skin. Then I use a tiny bit of lightweight oil on my face and body to moisturize both. Weleda's Baby Calendula Oil is a perfect body oil for the summer because it is very light and absorbs quickly. A light rose oil is perfect for your face. Just be sure not to put on too much - just a touch.

Lots of sunscreen is essential, but it also means a lot more potential for clogged pores. After a long day at the beach I use a mask made with calcium bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar to draw out impurities and then rehydrate my skin with a healthy dose of Weleda's Skin Food!

my favorite way to keep my skin looking it best in the summer is eat lots of fresh fruits such as organic berries, grapes and cherries. Also replace each meal with different kinds of soups also ensure adequate liquid intake. Lastly, avoid sun exposure as much as possible.

ALWAYS wear sunblock when outdoors and exposed to the sun's rays. Your skin is so much better off not tanning or burning!

Use blotting papers to absorb extra oil on your face without disturbing your makeup.

Spritzing with rosewater throughout the day, then applying rose lotion - I've done it for decades and still get compliments on my supple skin.

It is very important to take all makeup off at night. The least amount of makeup in the summer is best. Use a light facial moisturizer. Drink plenty of water.
