Heat, allergies, bug bites, sunburns…the summer months may be filled with vacations and adventure, but they’re not always kind to our skin! Luckily, we have an array of products that can help keep you moisturized, cleansed and glowing through the dry summer season!
The summer heat and humidity can clog up your pores, which may lead to breakouts and dry, patchy skin. This mask from Sakari Botanicals gently cleanses the skin and removes impurities. The mask is made with blue corn flour, and soothing lavender and chamomile.
This soap smells delicious, but don’t worry, it won’t dry your skin like many heavily-fragranced soaps! These soap bars, created by a Lakota family, are made with natural products such as huckleberries, sustainable palm oil, coconut oil and goat’s milk. It is gentle enough for babies or elders and supply nourishment and hydration to your skin.
Creamy and easy to apply, this Zinc Oxide sunscreen made by a Native Hawaiian family is our go-to this summer. It is sensitive-skin approved and won’t sting or burn your eyes when applying. The best part? This sunscreen is safe for aquatic wildlife and won’t harm the environment when it washes off your skin into the water.
These salves from Sakari Botanicals serve a wide variety of purposes. Grandmother’s Salve is made from yarrow, comfrey, sweetgrass and pinon pine from the Navajo Nation and is great for calloused hands, scrapes, cuts and bug bites.
