Our Secrets to Making the Most Out of Summer Bathing
There’s nothing like a refreshing shower after a long summer day. As we slow down to really relish in our surroundings and engage in activities that only occur once a year, we can also take time for more experiential bathing. This summer, we are emphasizing the bathing routine; using beautifully crafted, quality products that will take your summer bathtime to a whole new level.
Seasonal skincare is a notion that has always been important to us here at Farmaesthetics. Our skin is never in the same exact condition, therefore there are always new needs that should be addressed with nourishment or remedy. In the summertime months, we like to keep our skincare routine easy and gentle so that we can be looking and feeling our best. Our skin is exposed to so many harsh elements and environmental factors, (think sun, bugs, you name it!). Therefore, our focus remains on hydrating, cleansing, and cooling. Follow along for our tips and tricks to make the most out of your summer bathing.
For a gentle cleanse of the face, neck, and decollete – start with our Fine Herbal Cleanser. Light and herbal, this facial cleanser works well with all skin types, and helps restore the skin to its natural balance. For extra sudsiness, use our Sea Silk Cosmetic Sponge to really build up the lather.
When it comes to cleansing the body, we turn to our organic body washes: Gentle Mint Organic Body Wash and Almond Blossom Organic Body Wash. Lush and gently foaming, these moisturizing body washes are perfect for sensitive skin, and will soften and cleanse without stripping the skin of its much needed natural oils. To easily cover the entire body with shower gel, and for light exfoliation, apply the body wash with our sustainably harvested Natural Sea Wool Sponge.
For when skin is extra dry, we like to introduce a scrub or exfoliant to slough away dead skin cells and to naturally tone, tighten and brighten the skin for a vibrant, polished glow. Try our 2- piece Midnight Honey Body Buzz set for a super moisturizing body exfoliation and our Vassar Rose Skin Perfecting Polish for the face.
While our favorite summer bathing experience comes in the form of an outdoor shower, there are other simple ways to layer a little lushness into your bath time routine- try tying fresh eucalyptus branches to the shower head. This allows the vapors from the herb to release with the hot water, creating your very own aromatherapeutic steam bath.
Then, of course, to make things extra-special, try lighting your favorite candle and playing some of your favorite tunes…
Enjoy some summer self love!
