Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion

It’s been a hot summer so far, and the dog days are still upon us!

Do you know what the dog days of summer actually are? We love dogs (especially those rescued by the incredible humans over at Best Friends Animal Society), but the dog days of summer historically reference the period from July to August in which Sirius, the Dog Star, occupies the same region of the sky as our sun. Although the Romans believed differently, it has no effect on the planet’s temperature and no connection to the oppressive heat the summer months bring. Still, to help keep your cool through the home stretch, consider these skincare survival tips:

 

Do a deep clean. Switch out your daily cleanser for something with a little more kick to combat sweat and grime, like our Clarifying Facial Wash with vitamins, antioxidants and antibacterial agents like birch bark, rosemary and grapefruit extracts. For sensitive skin, we make a fragrance-free version too.

 

 

Stay out of the sun. We know, we know—impossible. Your best bet is to always use sun protection. While a wide-brimmed hat trumps everything, a layer of SPF is also imperative. Our Almond-Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15 offers silky, light, all-over protection for outside time around your busy life.

 

Go naked. On your face! Less is always more during the summer, during which dirt, sweat and pollution are likely to combine with your foundation or BB cream in more humid climates. So, forget looking flawless and let your natural glow carry you. The more often you go without makeup, the more your pores will thank you!

If you have to wear it for a special occasion, go with a non-greasy remover like Chamomile & Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover for an easy, gentle rinse-off.

 

Exfoliate—sometimes, but not all the time. Removing dead skin cells is key to keeping skin fresh and clear, but too much removal can lead to sun sensitivity. Cut back to one night per week during the hot summer months with a gentle fruit acid serum like Fruit Actives Perfecting Lotion. If you accidentally find yourself a little too sun-kissed, Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub can slough away flaking skin on face or body once the burn has healed.

 

Have a cold one. Skip the hot shower! Try to tolerate a cooler temperature while bathing so as not to strip your skin of its oils. Before drying off completely, moisturize while skin is still damp. A body lotion like our Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion will create a nourishing layer that locks in moisture to keep skin hydrated. To restore moisture on your face, try Healthy Skin Ceramide Facial Lotion.

 

Eat your H2O. In addition to drinking plenty of water daily (shoot for half your weight in ounces), snacking on fruits and veggies with high water content is a great way to naturally support hydration—inside and out! The following fruits and veggies are made of more than 90 percent water, so add them to your grocery list:

  • Grapefruit, strawberries, watermelon and cantaloupe
  • Cucumber, zucchini, celery and radishes
  • Spinach and cabbage
  • Sweet peppers and tomatoes

To really boost moisture for plumper, smoother skin, apply Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum morning and night. This essential element in human skin can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, so skin won’t feel parched.

ES MT Ceramide Lotion 8ozThere are a few things as frustrating as dry, rough, itchy skin.

But whether it’s due to cold or dry weather, allergies, irritation from harsh soaps and skin care treatments, or illness, dry, damaged skin can be difficult to get rid of. The key is using products that contain ingredients that help soothe, protect, and heal the skin from the inside out – that’s why ceramides are such a powerful ally in the fight against dry, rough skin.

Ceramides are effective in skin care products because they occur naturally in our skin. They’re actually fatty acids (lipids) that are found in the membrane of skin cells and serve as a key part of the stratum corneum, which is the skin’s primary barrier that helps lock moisture in and keep foreign substances out. The stratum corneum actually contains three types of lipids – ceramides, cholesterol, and free fatty acids. Together, these lipids form glycophospholipids. If you want healthy, hydrated skin, you must have the right proportion of ceramides in this barrier. Without enough ceramides, your skin can have trouble holding onto water and develop skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

If you’re looking for an effective way to incorporate ceramides into your skincare routine, Earth Science Naturals has introduced a product that helps to harnesses the power of these fatty acids to help heal and soothe dry, damaged skin. The Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion combines plant ceramides with lecithin and other essential fatty acids to create glycophospholipids that help restore and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. Like all of Earth Sciences Naturals’ products, the lotion is plant-based and contains other proven ingredients like shea butter to moisturize the skin and hemp oil to help stimulate ceramide production.

While the Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion has a soothing feel as soon as it’s applied to the skin, its long-term benefits are particularly impressive — because it doesn’t just moisturize on the surface. Regular use of Ceramides can aid in bolstering the skin’s moisture-retaining capabilities and may assist in healing skin that’s suffering from conditions like psoriasis and eczema by treating symptoms and preventing them from reoccurring. The non-greasy formula is also fragrance-free and doesn’t contain parabens or artificial dyes, so it’s an ideal choice for sensitive skin.

If you’re suffering from chronic dry, damaged skin or just have dehydrated skin due to the dry weather, the Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion is definitely a product worth checking out.
