During the summer months, when the sun is shining, post-sun rituals centered on healing, hydration, and balance keep our complexion summer-ready.  Crafted with an emphasis on high quality, plant-based ingredients, our skincare range inspires us to be our most relaxed and happiest selves.⁠

Best practices for summer weather...

  1. Hydration is key.  Drink more water than you think you need.
  2. Stay in the shade, or wear sunscreen and a hat.
  3. Include plenty of antioxidant rich foods like berries and dark green vegetables (hello, smoothie season!)
  4. Look for Vitamin C rich ingredients and Hyaluronic Acid in your skincare.
  5. Keep it simple!  Select a pair of rituals from below that will jive well with your personal summer style.

Three Delicious Duo’s for Summer…

Cleanse + Detox

If you’re a lover of the sun, and plan to spend plenty of time outdoors this season, a daily cleansing ritual can help gently remove grime from sweat and air pollution.  Woodlot’s Lemon + Petitgrain Cleansing Balm feeds the skin vitamin rich antioxidants that calm inflammation and reduce irritation.

Rejuvenate your skin with a weekly mask ritual, using Woodlot’s Green Tea + Clay Dry Mask.  Green tea helps to heal and protect against UV exposure, while BC Glacial Clay works to detoxify your skin by drawing out impurities.  Mix with water or raw honey from your local farmer’s market, and add a few drops of Flora Essential Oil to reap the benefits of lavender’s skin cell regenerating properties.

Exfoliate + Renew

Summer weather calls for additional hydration for you and your skin, but you can get way more out of your serums and moisturizers if you incorporate a weekly exfoliation ritual.  Woodlot’s Fresh Face Exfoliant includes organic almond, quinoa, and oat flours that can gently clear away dead skin without irritation.  Rose geranium oil soothes, while orange and bergamot oils help to brighten and even skin tone.

Keep up with hydration all summer long, by using our Rose Water Toner day and night.  This beautiful smelling serum is so refreshing and leaves skin feeling instantly hydrated and supple.  Rose water is a plant based source of vitamin C, and hylauronic acid and glycerin draw moisture to the skin, and hold it in, keeping skin hydrated and glowing.

Nourish + Soothe

Sensitive skin requires extra TLC in the summer months, which is why we love to combine our Chamomile + Shea Moisturizer with our Nourishing Facial Oil.  Start by applying this water-based moisturizer to your face and neck, adding hydration, while also providing nutrients that support the structure of skin cells.

Add vitamin rich botanicals with our Facial Oil, designed to lock moisture in and illuminate skin by reducing pigmentation caused by previous break outs or sun damage.  Made with Rosehip Oil, which includes plant based vitamin A to speed up healing, and ultra-nourishing shea butter, this oil is the ultimate in achieving that oh-so-glow-y summer complexion.
