After months of soaking up the summer sun, your skin may need some extra special attention. It’s normal for it to look and feel a little rougher, especially with so much time spent in contact with salt water, sweat, bugs, and sun. Here are some easy, natural ways you can rejuvenate your skin to keep it healthy and glowing into the next season.
Moisturize everywhere. Chlorine, ocean water, and frequent showering may have robbed your skin and hair of its moisture. Try using olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado to soften and hydrate your skin. These items are inexpensive and likely already in your kitchen!
Revive dull skin. Remove dry, dead skin and uncover new cells below by whipping up a homemade body scrub using your leftover coffee grounds. They’re the perfect exfoliant, plus they’re rich in antioxidants which can help with aging. Here are a few recipes for coffee scrubs you can use on your face, lips, and feet.
Address problems as soon as they happen. There are many homeopathic medicines for all kinds of skin issues and symptoms you can experience. Are you a mosquito magnet? The homeopathic preparation of rosemary, Ledum palustre 30C, relieves swelling and itching of mosquito bites, especially when taken during times of exposure like dawn and dusk.* If summer sports have left their mark on you, Arnica montana 6C reduces swelling from injuries and discoloration from bruises.* And for blemishes and marks that won’t go away, Graphites 30C can help reduce scars.*
For other skin irritations, there’s Boiron Calendula Cream. This medicine promotes the healing of cuts, scrapes, chafing, minor burns, and sunburn.* Its lightweight and moisturizing texture makes it ideal to use as an all-around face and hand cream, as well.
Find where to buy these and other Boiron medicines for first-aid skin care in a store near you.
