12 Summer Survival Beauty Hacks

Beat the heat and stay fresh, clean and natural with these makeup and body care hacks.

  • For the smoothest legs before a night out or big event, use Body Polish as a pre-shaving treatment, by applying and exfoliating your skin with the polish, then rinsing off the sugar and using the excess oils as a shave cream. Try Pomegranate, Midnight Orchid, Pink Champagne or Coconut Lime Vanilla.
  • Stop lipstick from bleeding by lining the outer edge of your lips using Neutral Concealing Stick and blend outward with the Foundation Concealer Brush.
  • Run out of lip balm? Grab your Organic Skin & Nail Balm or Nursing Balm and apply to lips after a day in the sun.
  • Don’t let your Sheer Minerals Makeup melt away! After applying your mineral makeup, set with a few sprays of Mineral Setting Spray then use the Blending Sponge and Matte Veil, Pink Veil or your Mineral Foundation to dab away any oil or shine.
  • Keep Eye Liner Pencil from smearing by lightly dusting Matte Veil or Pink Veil under the eye to absorb sweat and hold the line in place.
  • Make your Hydrating Body Spritz do double duty to freshen skin and hair! Tame frizz by spraying a couple squirts on your hand and gently smooth hair. Plus, use Hydrating Body Spritz as a detangler after swimming. Try Coconut Cream, Strawberry Lemonade or Grapefruit Lily. Refrigerate for a fragrant, refreshing mist.
  • Sooth razor burns with Healing Elements Balm, Prebiotic Facial Mist or Organic Skin & Nail Balm.
  • Tone down a red nose from sunburn with Green Corrector Concealing Stick first, apply foundation next then use Honey Glow Bronzer instead of blush.
  • Sweat stains are the pits! Try one of these 3 natural stain removers. Avoid use with delicate fabrics like silk, and patch test a small area of dark colored fabric to ensure treatment won’t bleach garment.
    • Soak the stained area in vinegar. Whites and light colors: use equal parts cold water and vinegar. Dark colors: use equal parts warm water and vinegar. Rinse and let dry before laundering.
    • Cut a lemon in half and rub cut side on stain, squeezing little juice into the stain. Air dry and apply more as needed. Wash as normal.
    • Sprinkle baking soda on stained area. Allow to dry and brush off baking soda. Repeat as needed until stain fades. Wash as normal.
  • Keep Mineral Setting Spray in a cooler or the refrigerator to cool, hydrate and freshen your face throughout the day. Perfect for a BBQ or other outdoor event.
  • Cool a sunburn by applying Prebiotic Facial Mist first followed by Whipped Body Butter once mist has soaked into skin.

Men’s Skincare: Why & How in 4 Simple Steps

Men often have a different idea of skincare and take a different approach than women. They are still interested in how their skin looks or feels, but they typically don’t seem to be interested in the pampering side of a luxurious skincare routine. Encouraging the men in your life to keep up a skincare routine can be a little challenging. Here are a couple tips and tricks along with some excellent gift ideas to get them started.

Tip #1 - Keep it Simple

Don’t overwhelm him with a 5-step skincare routine. He will see taking care of his skin as a chore or just confusing, therefore, neglecting to do it all together. A simple bar of soap such as the Detoxifying Charcoal Face Bar Soap or Men’s Private Reserve Bar Soap, followed by a moisturizer like Men’s Essentials Aftershave Lotion or Men’s Private Reserve Hand & Body Lotion is an excellent skincare routine for most days.

Tip #2 - Multi-Purpose Products

Multi-use products are appealing to most men because it’s a one and done deal with their routine, so products that are designed to use for skin all over the body are perfect. Our Prebiotic 3-in-1 Wash in Men’s Essentials and Unscented can be used head to toe (hair, face and body). Men can also use Men’s Essentials Beard Oil as a multi-purpose product by adding a couple of drops into their Men’s Essentials After-Shave Lotion to help alleviate extra dry and tight skin.

Skin Detoxing with Activated Charcoal

Over the past couple of years, People have become more aware of what detoxing is and have found more helpful ways to aid their bodies in the process. Our bodies are naturally designed to detox, take in the good and eliminate the bad. The simple act of breathing in (bring in fresh oxygen) and breathing out (exhaling carbon dioxide) is detoxing. Since we now live in an overpolluted world from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the chemicals we put on our skin, sometimes our bodies become overloaded with toxins. When our bodies can not keep up with proper detoxing we start to suffer. Looking at this from the skin aspect you can suffer from conditions such as dark circles, acne, dullness, dehydration or even sallowness. There has been one ingredient effective at helping with the detoxing process, and it is activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. It is often given internally to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. It works the exact same way for your skin. When using activated charcoal on your skin, it will draw pollution, chemicals and toxins off and safely eliminate them when you rinse with water. Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

Benefits_of_Charcoal_500_x_600.jpg

Lemongrass Spa Products launched three new skincare products handcrafted with activated charcoal to help your skin detox. Incorporating these products into your skincare routine or using them all together once or twice a week, as a system will help liven up your skin. If you live in a city or suburb I would recommend using these more often as the exposure to pollution is much higher in those areas. Here are some ways you can incorporate each new product into your skincare to achieve healthier skin!

  • Detoxifying Charcoal Face Soap Replace the cleanser you use at night with this face soap. This will help detox from the environmental pollution your skin has absorbed throughout the day. Even if you work at home, stepping outside for a walk or running errands exposes you to pollution.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish Mixing activated charcoal with a gentle exfoliator is a double detox. Not only are you removing cell build up, but you’re also allowing the activated charcoal to work deeper when exfoliating. After you give this product a gentle scrub on your skin, allow it to sit for 1-2 minutes and let the activated charcoal absorb more before rinsing. Enhanced with acai berry and raspberry seed oil antioxidants, you’ll enjoy a subtle fruit essence upon application. This is perfect if you don’t have time to do a full-face mask or detox system. Include this once or twice a week into your routine.
  • Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Mask This is great to add to your routine when you have at least 10 minutes or more to allow it to work to its full capacity. If you chose to do your full detoxing routine once a week then apply this mask after you have used the Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Polish.
