Get Summer Ready With These 7 Natural Skin Care Brands
As we approach the month of June, we can feel the weather becoming warmer, the days becoming longer, and we know summer is well on its way. This means that we can finally wear less layers and show more skin—which applies to the skin on your face, as well. In the warmer months of the year, your skin goes through a variety of changes, making it even more important to give your skin the TLC it deserves. And what better way to say goodbye to spring and hello to summer than with new, healthy, and summer-ready skin care products? Here, I share 7 of our favorite natural skin care brands whose products will help ease the transition from spring to summer.
We are Wild is all about making skin care natural, easy, and fun. Their ethical approach to simple, daily skin care makes you feel as though you’re giving something back to the world when using their products. Their formulas are unique in that you won’t find any messy liquids in their containers. Instead, you’ll find only solid products that were designed to keep your skin care routine simple and sustainable over time. Not to mention, their products are all non-toxic and cruelty free.
Woodlot is a Canadian-based shop with pure intentions and amazing plant-based products. With their wide-ranging product line, you can easily find a product to help with your skin care needs, whatever those may be. From nourishing facial moisturizers to green tea clay masks, Woodlot offers a diverse array of clean skin care products that are sure to spice up your regular routine. In all, Woodlot stands by their mission to make wellness and beauty intentional, inclusive, and natural.
Aethera takes a unique approach to skincare. How? They use Cannabis Sativa, also known as hemp seed oil, in some of their products, in addition to botanical concentrates found in the Caribbean. Cannabis Sativa is good for your skin, because it is full of antioxidants and is known to fight pre-mature aging. Aethera also makes great use of other natural ingredients, such as aloe, coconut, and papaya. Their products are cruelty free, non-toxic, and vegan, and they will definitely have a place on my bathroom counter this summer.
If you’re in to holistic wellness, then Dr. Alkaitis products might just be your perfect match. Their products ensure that, no matter your skin type, you will see and feel a noticeable difference in your skin. Using a scientific approach, Dr. Alkaitis aims to create a dynamic line of skin care products, all of which are meant to regulate and guide your skin to its true balance. I recommend trying this brand most to those wanting to wear less or no makeup this summer. (Fun fact: they also make hair products!)
Apto Skincare is all about making affordable, clean beauty products, and I know many of us can get behind that this summer season. As a brand, they hope to help everyone be diligent about their skin care routines and to influence their customers to make clean beauty decisions, even on a strict budget. Their ingredients, ranging from seaweed and apple extract to turmeric and cucumber, will give your skin a radiant, summer-kissed glow. Their masks and sprays are some of our favorite products and are definitely worth a try this summer!
Vo Beauty, founded by an esthetician with over a decade of experience, gives you nothing but the best in regards to your skin. Because the brand values efficiency and focuses on a less-is-more approach, they deliver their customers with easy-to-use, nutrient-filled products. Say goodbye to using a plethora of products this summer and, instead, achieve your healthy, glowing skin with Vo Beauty. Each of their products adds to your skin care routine by fueling your skin with all the necessary nutrients. Oh and did I mention that, by shopping with Vo Beauty, you’re also helping save the bees?
Like the rest of the brands in this round-up, Z Natural Life is, too, a clean beauty brand. Founded by a husband and wife power couple, Z Natural Life takes a minimalist approach to skin care in that their products give you only what your skin needs. A true family affair, this brand shares in the values espoused by the founders in their personal lives in that both the duo and the brand itself believes that what you put in and on your body should be only the good-for-you ingredients. Along with their skin care product line, this brand also inspires consumers to live greener, more eco-friendly lives by sharing DIY masks on their blog.
