It’s summertime and while we love the sunshine, it also means these warms months can toll on our skin. basq NYC (leader in maternity skin care) co-founders, Kelli and Lauren, share four simple tricks on how to keep your skin looking fresh, healthy and gorgeous during this heated time.
1) SUMMER START DO OVER
It’s time for a fresh start and while your skin needs a do-over – you definitely don’t want to over do it!
When it’s time to Exfoliate we love sugar! Naturally rich in Glycolic acids, sugar helps release dry, dull skin as they condition, moisturize and protect against toxins. Best of all, sugar granules gently exfoliate & smooth unlike salts which can be drying and seeds which have edges that can cause problems instead of fixing them! Buff to beautiful 3 times per week.
2) NATURE KNOWS BEST
When it comes to skin conditioning, there’s nothing better than a potent blend of omega rich oils. Oils feed your skin and give it an incredible healthy glow that’s bathing suit ready. Like all great relationships, you need to keep it interesting. Choose rich oil blends over single note ingredients and for a bounty of nutrients – think multi vitamin for the skin.
Our Resilient Body Oil has made many a believer out of even the biggest skeptic. It’s fast, easy, fully absorbs and offers a one and done routine for those who want to keep it simple. Best to use body oils after a warm shower.
3) YOUR SKIN IS THIRSTY
All that nutrient rich food you’re eating isn’t actually reaching your skin. Your body needs those nutrients for all the vital functions. Same with water, no matter how much you drink your skin isn’t getting the hydration it needs. You have to smooth on your skin nutrition for it to work. Make sure you are using products that absorb – literally disappear into skin and do not sit on top. That’s how you know they are working!
4) BRING ON THE BODY BUILDERS
Omega’s fuel skin’s natural build of Collagen & Elastin. Found in the mid layer of skin, these fibers are the essential building blocks for skin strength. Elastin Fibers let skin stretch like a rubber band and Collagen Fibers help skin stay resilient so it can bounce back. For toned, strong skin, bulk up on building Collagen and Elastin. The ultimate basq toner is Mega Moisture – it’s feel rich and decadent and drinks right in for incredibly soft, supple skin.
