Double up the skin protection when heading for the beach, lake or park. Wear a hat and a cover-up. Or a cute printed rashguard with SPF.
Limit sun exposure. Especially between the hours of 10 am to 2 pm when UV rays are most intense. I know, it’s hard when there are so many fun things to do outside in the summer but it is the most effective method to protect skin.
Hydrate! Be sure to drink plenty of water. Not a huge fan of plain water? Add a few slices of cucumber, melon or sprigs of mint for a subtle yet delicious flavor.
Exfoliate. All that sun, sand and fun takes a toll on your skin. Use a gentle exfoliant for facial skin, like finely ground oatmeal mixed with yogurt or honey, and one of our hydrating sea salt scrubs on your body to keep skin healthy.
One of my favorite seasons has returned - which means my signature spring scents have also returned to the website!

All of which are refreshing, clean, and reminiscent of spring mornings with blooming flowers and the sweet breeze that comes with them. Today on the blog, we're highlight what makes each of these soaps so special!
