Love Your Summer Skin

by Mollie Jensen June 21, 2018

Who doesn’t love summer? The sun shines upon us in all its glory, the days are longer, and hopefully you get a nice, relaxing vacation in. Though with warm weather and sunshine, sometimes your skin doesn’t always look its best. When things heat up it can leave your skin dehydrated, unbalanced and feeling irritated. But there’s hope. We have a few summer skin saviors that will help you retain your glow (and hydration) to keep your skin feeling as happy as your brain does on while on vacation.

Keeping your skin smooth and radiant during the summer months is all about balance. How do you replenish moisture without adding to that icky sticky feeling in high humidity? And do you keep your skin cool and calm, even if the day is a scorcher? First start with Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer to calm skin that’s been stressed out by the hot summer sun. It helps reduce the appearance of redness and irritation, plus the weightless gel formula also helps balance hydration without increasing shine. Even if your skin is on the drier side, it’s your go-to moisturizer this season.

Of course, it’s important to keep your skin shielded against the sun’s damaging rays with Squalane + Mineral SPF 45, but protecting your skin’s moisture is also essential—no matter your skin type. Heat from the sun depletes your moisture barrier, leaving your skin feeling rough and dry. 100% Squalane Oil is an easy way to stay replenished—before and after the sun. Slather it on before to going out for the day to help maintain moisture and then after the sun to get your skin feeling back to its pre-exposed condition. This multipurpose, sugarcane-derived moisture-replenisher can be used head to toe—it even works to control frizzy hair.

It might seem counterintuitive to use oils during summer, but because squalane is so lightweight, you won’t end up feeling greasy. Even our Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil can be used in summer since the base is weightless squalane. You'll look dewy and fresh, never weighed down and oily.

Last, but certainly not least, you’ll have a lot more fun this summer if your skin keeps it’s cool. And for that, nothing beats Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist. This ultra-fine mist is like having your own portable mist machine. It features green algae that helps cool down the skin, and it has a refreshing blend of essential oils that don’t overpower the environment around you. In other words, you can mist away without offending anyone. If that weren’t enough, it also contains not one, but two types of the super-hydrator hyaluronic acid—one a low molecular weight and another high molecular weight. What this means is that it keeps your skin hydrated inside and out, plumping away the look of fine lines and helping to reawaken the look of makeup.

Keep yourself looking like one cool kitty this summer—even when the heat turns up. And to stay replenished on the go, check out our new summer set, It’s All Good to Go, featuring a travel-size Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist and a 100% Squalane Oil, plus a sample of Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel.

Here’s to a glowing (and beautifully hydrated) summer!

My lifelong obsession with the world of beauty started at an early age and kicked off right out of high school as a makeup artist. My dreams of being the next big thing in Hollywood took a detour as I discovered esthetics and became fascinated with how the skin functions. From there I worked post-operatively with patients in a burn trauma unit, helping them care for their skin and conceal their scars. This led to product formulation and the world of aromatherapy where I began my career in product development. As a consultant for several years working with many startups, I quickly became the go-to in helping launch and rebrand product lines, my specialties in product formulation, regulatory compliant copywriting and building cohesive brand personalities. My love of natural and sustainable beauty led me to Biossance, where I happily reside as Senior Marketing Manager for new product development.

Ever wonder why every time the season changes your skin totally freaks out? Well, colder weather brings drier air that can make keeping your skin supple and hydrated a challenge. Even those of us with oily skin find that suddenly, our skin has more micro-climates than San Francisco. Couple the natural shifts in temperature with heating systems to keep us toasty and our skin’s moisture just doesn’t stand a chance.

We all know that our skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, but did you know that this protective barrier also has a protective barrier of its own? That’s right, it’s your skin’s natural moisture barrier, which is an important part in keeping you—and your skin—healthy. And we’re all about healthy skin at Biossance.
