New Products To Try & Why By Crystal F. on Friday, May 25, 2018

The unofficial start to summer is now–here’s what you need!


May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month so it’s extra important to sun-proof your skin.  Be sure to bring these skin savers if you’re heading off on an adventure for the holiday weekend: They’ll protect and pamper your skin while keeping it safe from sun damage.


1. COOLA Suncare products contain certified organic extracts, antioxidants and vitamins that boost your skin’s natural immune system.  Try the ECO-LUX Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50. Mineral Liplux SPF 30 or Mineral Face SPF 30 Matte Tint ($18-$36).


2. Eminence Organic Skin Care Bamboo Firming Fluid ($58) is great for an alternative to retinol to revive normal to dry skin. It combines bamboo, coconut, chicory root and tara tree to strengthen, hydrate and visibly firm skin in an instant.  Their products are powered by natural, organic, biodynamic whole fruits, vegetables and herbs.


3. Paula’s Choice RESIST Skin Restoring Moisturizer SPF 50 ($33) shields skin from both UVA and UVB rays utilizing powerhouse ingredients like shea butter, coffee seed, apple and licorice.  Apply as the last step in your AM skincare routine and reapply throughout the day every two hours to keep skin safe from the sun.


4. Indulge in self-care for your skin with Herbivore Rose Quartz Facial Gua Sha Tools, which take the principles of healing Chinese medicine to increase circulation and move lymphatic fluid so that skin may begin to heal itself.  Do a ritual with these healing gemstone tools to decrease puffiness while easing tension, stress and anxiety.


5.  Restore and replenish even the most sensitive of skin with Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil  ($40).  This multi-tasking oil is easy to pack and certified organic, promoting clear, even skin tone, improving elasticity and firmness as it deeply conditions skin.


6. The new Mineral Collection from Sun Bum ($3.99-$17.99) has all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff!  Think: Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, hypoallergenic, Reef Friendly, a product of the USA, non-nano zinc, free of parabens, gluten, silicone, dyes as well as cruelty-free.
