A summer time skin ritual that’ll have you looking as youthful as you feel!
Summer tends to be the time when we all feel our youngest, no matter our physical age. The month of May invites a sense of adventure, boldness, and curiosity back into our minds where it flourishes. Perhaps these emotions are inspired by warmer weather, blue skies, and the return of blossoms + greenery. We draw youthfulness from the nostalgic memories of rolling in the grass, climbing high in trees, and getting into mischief of unbound childhood freedom. Even as we age physically, we may still find that the natural world encourages us to be young at heart - when we allow it.
How may we embrace this pull back into adventure and passion?
Maybe you feel most youthful when your skin is hydrated and smooth, as fresh as a post-sea swim. Perhaps it’s the minor scrapes and bruises you wear as a badge of honor from a difficult hike or excursion, similar to those of romping and roaming as a youngster, and the soothing feeling of a salve applied by a doting parent. Using what nature has to offer is the best way to get back into those blissful feelings of youth and the fresh perspective they bring.
Step 1: Just like when you were a child, it should only takes a few of the right products for your skin to look + feel youthful.
Simplicity is the key.
Despite the barrage of videos and blogs out there pushing a 6-10 product regimen, this can actually end up doing more harm than good, especially if they’re full of toxic fillers and chemicals. Investing in just a few squeaky-clean superlative, genuinely beneficial products eliminates the need for a cabinet full of ineffectual products.

Is any great adventure truly possible without a few, scrapes, bruises, or even a sunburn along the way? Half of the fun is the story behind these memorable momentos.
