Summer Skin Care Tips from Seed

Heat + humidity can make you feel like a hot, sweaty mess. Let's be honest here. In this type of weather, most of us double check to be sure our deodorant is working properly. Some of us check for sweat marks. And we hop in the pool, the lake or into a cool shower to stay cool and fresh. It happens to all of us! 

We're sharing our favorite summer skin care tips -- from essential oils to cukes, we have ideas you'll love to help you stay comfy all summer long.

Essential oils to help you keep your cool

In aromatherapy, Lemongrass Essential Oil has been traditionally used for its stress reduction benefits. It is a wonderful natural deodorant and antiperspirant.

Lemongrass has a high geraniol and citral content, which makes it effective at repelling pesky mosquitoes without using harmful ingredients such as DEET. You could say that Lemongrass is the PERFECT summertime essential oil!

Another oil that is ideal for summer is Coriander Essential Oil, which is you may know Did you know that Coriander is a powerful deodorizer? Research also shows that this oil has anti-bacterial benefits. Another perk is that If your skin is feeling sensitive or irritated, it will feel cool and soothing

When you combine the two oils, you have our Freshen Up Beneficial Blend! Add it to your body oil, body lotion, body cream or body wash. 

 

Be as cool as a cucumber.

Cucumber is so soothing to the skin, especially on a hot day. I don't know about you, but my makeup feels like it melt right off on humid days, so I want to share this tip wit you: Keep your Seed Cucumber Daily Facial Toner in the fridge during the summer, as the chilled cucumber hydrosol and other nutrients feel AMAZING on the skin.

Cucumbers are naturally soothing as well, so another secret I would like to share with you from my own personal experience is to use it for after-sun care. If you have a sunburn or your skin just feels sensitive to the touch after being out in the elements, applying chilled cucumber toner helps to ease inflammation, soreness, and redness. 

Get minty fresh.

Peppermint essential oil is another ingredient we love here at Seed! Peppermint is naturally refreshing and cooling, so we recommend you choose this as an essential oil for your Seed Custom Blend Body Lotion.

We'll add this essential oil to your lotion so you can massage it into your legs and feet for an instant cooling effect. I also like to apply the peppermint lotion to my feet at night and cover with socks. Feet are left feeling silky and smelling great!

Let's call it Face Washing 101. It may seem like a no-brainer, but are you washing your face properly? Maybe not.

Today, we're sharing how to wash your face the correct way.

 1. Before you even think of touching your face, wash your hands.

So many of us overlook this step, but it is crucial. If you just wet your hands and apply cleanser, you will be rubbing bacteria and dirt onto your skin. By doing so, your pores may become clogged and breakouts may occur. Wash your hands thoroughly and then apply your facial care.

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year. I can tell you that I had many choices in the dining hall, but my mom wasn't there to make sure I ate my fruits and veggies. I loaded up on macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes. I drank soda pop instead of water. I made Pop Tarts in my dorm room and ordered pizza regularly. Eat as many fresh, whole foods as you can and drink lots of water. Your skin will benefit from this. I recommend eating lots of
