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!

What are the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil?
- Naturally refreshing, peppermint is one of the more uplifting essential oils.
- There is natural menthol in peppermint to provide skin with cooling sensation.
- Peppermint is noted for its ability to bring about clarity. In fact, there was a 2008 study in the International Journal of Neuroscience with some really impressing results concerning peppermint. The study showed that peppermint increases mental alertness and can enhance memory.
We've talked about common beauty buzzwords before. Terms like hypoallergenic, natural, and chemical-free are thrown around without having much meaning at all. In fact, there is no regulation of these terms and they can be used to make the product more enticing without any repercussions.
One of the most commonly used buzzwords in beauty and skin care is "Non-Comedogenic".
The medical definition of comedogenic is tending to clog pores especially by the formation of blackheads. Non-comedogenic, in skin care speak, implies that a product will not block pores, leading to acne breakouts. It's a term slapped on product bottles with wild abandon in the beauty industry.
Baths are steeped in tradition, from heated baths in Rome to enjoying cool baths in Scandinavia. Most of us associate baths as being either for young children or for those taking long, pampering bubble baths for those rare "take me away" experiences. There are many health benefits to enjoying a bath, though.
1. Taking a warm bath at night can help you get a better sleep.
Once you have stepped into your warm bath, you immediately feel calmer and more relaxed. Did you know that science tells us there is another reason baths help you feel a bit better, though? Do you know that cooler feeling you experience stepping out of the tub, leaving the warm water behind? When that colder air hits your skin, your brain releases something you may have heard of before: Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that helps to lull you off to Dream Land a bit more easily.
