Summer Skin Care Tips from Seed
Is your skin ready for summer?
Let's have a show of hands. How many of you are truly ready to bare your arms and legs in sundresses, shorts & tank tops?
Did you ignore your skin a bit when it was covered by your cardigan and hidden under pants?
We get it! We've been there. It is not too late.
Our favorite summer skin care tips:
1. Exfoliate with a gentle sea salt or turbinado sugar scrub to get rid of the dead skin cells that are giving your skin a dull, ashy look.
2. Cleanse with a gentle, sulfate free body wash. Why? Sodium lauryl and sodium laureth sulfate are both harsh surfactants -- cleansing agents -- that can dry and strip the skin of essential moisture. Choose a natural body wash such as Seed Gentle Body Wash, which is creamy and nourishing to the skin.
3. On damp skin, spritz on our body oil mist when you step out of the shower. Gently massage in. Never greasy and quick absorbing, Seed Body Oil Mist leaves your skin feeling silky and smooth.
4. Follow with Seed Body Cream for extra quenched skin. Our cream is rich and a bit heavier, yet non-greasy. If you prefer a bit less moisture and a pump bottle, opt for the Seed Grape Seed Enriched Body Lotion.
Your skin will look dewy, healthy & radiant!

If you are on the quest for healthy looking skin, this ingredient needs to be in your skin care arsenal.
Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3 (also called Nicotinic Acid) offers multiple benefits to the skin. It can help to visibly diminish the appearance of large pores, fine lines, skin dullness, and also helps to even out skin tone.
There is solid research supporting the benefits of Niacinamide.This skin vitamin is one that truly benefits nearly every skin type. Other recent research published by the editors of the Melanoma Letter suggests that niacinamide "can significantly reduce recurrences of actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma in patients with a history of these lesions."
Summer means sundresses, shorts, swimwear, and exposed skin. Most of us spend more time shaving our legs to keep them silky and smooth, but end up with occasional nicks, cuts, and razor burn. We are here to share our 5 best shaving tips for a better shave this summer.
Prevent ingrown hairs with exfoliation.
We've talked about the skin care benefits of exfoliation before. Removing dead skin cells is essential, as flakes that have collected around the hair follicles will complicate your shave. If you have do not regularly exfoliate, this accumulation of dead skin cells will ultimately lead to ingrown hairs. Be sure to apply a body scrub regularly in the shower (but never right after shaving).
Don't shave right when you step into the shower.
Skin care experts agree: wait at least 3 minutes after being in the shower or tub to shave your legs. Why? It is important for the hair to be hydrated for an easier, tug-free shave. Go ahead and shampoo and condition your hair, wash your face, and then save the shave for later.
After a gray and rainy spring, it is finally beginning to feel as it should -- like we are heading into summer! I love the feeling of soaking up the rays, but sun smarts are essential for your skin.
The sun's UV rays can greatly impact the condition of the skin. While sitting with our faces toward the sun makes us feel so good, it is important to remember that we have to be vigilant about our sun care.
