Summer Skin Care Tips
Our Makeup Artist, Erika, offers her advice to keep you safe this season.
 
Summer weather is here!  Time to show off some skin. Here are some tips to keep yours looking its best all season long.
 

*Drink plenty of water.  Keeping your body hydrated helps to keep your skin hydrated.

 

*Use proper sun protection.  This includes covering up when necessary and using the right strength sun screen.

*Use plenty of moisturizer. 

*During the summer months, avoid using products containing citrus ingredients and scents when you spend time in the sun.  Citrus, including grapefruit, lemon, and lime can cause your skin to be more sensitive to the suns rays, making you more susceptible to sunburn.

 

Keep these simple tips in mind to ensure healthy glowing skin all summer long!
Important Dates

Did you know that June 6th is National Gardening Exercise Day?  We encourage you to get outside and spend some quality time with Mother Nature.  Experts suggest warming up with a few stretches before beginning your garden workout.  Spend about 20 minutes alternating between activities such as weeding, digging, planting, mowing, pruning, and raking.  Each action helps to strengthen different muscle groups.  Some qualify as aerobic exercise!  Remember to stay hydrated with water and  protect your skin.  Aim for working prior to or after the hottest hours of the day: 11am-3pm.

 

Don't forget - Sunday the 17th is Father's Day!  Who says guys can't be green in their skin care routine?  Show that special man in your life some love with our What to Get a Guy Gift Bag.  All products are packaged in a rustic Jute cosmetic bag - perfect for travel!

 

Hurray!  June 20th is the official beginning of Summer.  Say hello to the Solstice by stocking up on warm weather essentials: Insect Deterrent, Cooling Sun Spray, and Setting Mist.

After customer feedback suggested our Autumn Cornhusk Foundation was too shimmery, we decided to alter the formula to create a second shade of bronzer.

 

Meet Acorn!

 

 

Acorn Bronzer recreates the sun kissed glow of a tan without the harmful effects of the sun's rays.  In comparison to Butternut, Acorn is lighter and has lustre. Suitable for all skin tones.

Customer    Feedback  

  

Congratulations to Elaine W. of Atlanta, GA - winner of this month's Customer Feedback

token of appreciation.  She won $10 by telling us this:

 

 "Just wanted to say thank you and tell you how much I am enjoying looking good AND keeping yucky chemicals off my face!

 
I am a big fan of your mineral foundation, and the brow stabilizer is really good, too.  I have been using clear mascara on my brows for a long time...nice to finally find something that is better for me than that stuff!
 
I will say...if you ever wanted to change it up, having a wand to apply the stabilizer to brows would be really cool...but that may not work with your formula.  Just a thought.
 
Thank you again--you have a big fan here in Atlanta!"
