Summer Skincare Survival Guide

Product recommendations to ensure that your skin will thrive during every season.

As the temperatures rise and the days become longer, you must adjust your skincare routine to protect and nourish your skin. At our natural skincare company, we are committed to providing you with the best tips and products to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing all summer long. Today on the blog, we share research-backed skincare tips and our favorite products to care for your skin this season.

Hydration is Everything

Glowing skin starts from within, so kick off your day with a glass of water infused with lemon—trust us, your skin will thank you. Lemon water is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which help detoxify your body and support collagen production, essential for maintaining skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. Next, ensure your day-to-day products are created to hydrate the skin.

Hydration doesn't just come from what you apply to your skin, but also from what you consume. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day keeps your skin cells hydrated, flushes out toxins, and helps maintain a clear, glowing complexion.

Usually searching for products that are labeled as natural skincare for sensitive skin is a great place to start. We will be sharing all of our recommendations below as well.

Hydrating Cleansers

It’s essential to invest in a high-quality, hydrating cleanser, especially for the morning time. Find a hydrating cleanser that washes away impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Hydrating cleansers often contain ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which attract and retain moisture, ensuring your skin remains soft and supple even after cleansing. Our all-time favorite cleanser is the Youth to the People Kale Superfood Cleanser.  This gentle yet effective daily face wash is packed with superfood antioxidants from kale, spinach, and green tea to provide your skin with a thorough cleanse. It helps prevent pore buildup, removes makeup, and maintains pH balance without causing dryness or stripping - perfect for the summer.

Hydrating Toners

Toners are such an underlooked step in the skincare routine but can make such a large difference in your skin and are extremely layer-able. After cleansing the face, we love to use our finger tips to pat on a nice hydrating cleanser before layering with any active ingredients.

Licorice root toner is one of our favorite products - it is a skincare powerhouse known for its brightening properties, reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation for a more even complexion. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits soothe irritation and combat acne, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Additionally, it offers antioxidant protection and strengthens the skin barrier, keeping your skin youthful and resilient. A great, affordable option available on Amazon is the Acwell Licorice Root Toner.

Of course, we had to mention our product that we spent the last two years perfecting -- The Dew Spray. This is a hydrating facial spray that doubles as a toner, perfect for layering in any skincare routine. We like to spray directly onto our faces after cleansing, with or without other toners. This nutrient-dense elixir, infused with organic aloe vera and red and black algae extracts, delivers a powerful dose of ocean-derived minerals to your skin. It leaves your complexion dewy, soft, and supple all day long. Lock in all the goodness with the rest of your serums and a great moisturizer afterward to seal in your routine.

Pro tip - The Dew Spray can be used on top of your makeup and sunscreen as a hydrating facial mist throughout the day.

Non-Irritating Facial Sunscreen

We all know that safeguarding our skin from the sun's intense UV rays is paramount. However, applying daily sunscreen to the face can be unenjoyable if you don’t have the right product. So many people struggle to find a sunscreen that not only offers high SPF protection but also wears comfortably under makeup and doesn’t irritate sensitive skin or eyes. After extensive searching, we discovered the TiZO2 Facial Primer Non Tinted Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 40—a smooth, primer-like formula that effortlessly blends into the skin without causing any irritation. It's our top choice for reliable sun protection that keeps your skin feeling comfortable and protected all day long without bothering your eyes.


For a complexion that radiates health and vitality, regular exfoliation is key. By sloughing away dead skin cells, clearing out pores, and promoting cell turnover, exfoliation reveals smoother, brighter skin. Incorporate exfoliating products like Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant or the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Refillable Exfoliator into your routine 1-2 times a week to achieve that coveted glow without the risk of irritation. These products are gentle yet effective, making them ideal for maintaining a clear and luminous complexion.
