Summer Skincare from Burt's Bees

With summer season kicking in, get your skin ready for the sunny afternoons by the pool or lazy mornings on the beach. Here are some tips:

#1 Cleanse
We love Burt's Bee's Soap Bark & Chamomile for gentle but thorough cleansing. This formula leaves your skill feeling cool and refreshed after a sizzling day in the city or a freezing afternoon at the office.

#2 Exfoliate
A tip from our 77 year old skincare veteran who still has immaculate skin - no wrinkles, spots, dryness (thanks Grannie!): At least once every week exfoliate to help your skin regenerate.  Try Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. 

#3 Moisturize
Day time moisturizers are good to have but night time cremes are a must. Give your skin a chance to revive while you are sleeping without all the pollution and stress. Before bed, gently moisturize with this Carrot Nutritive filled with natural ingredients like almond, avocado and coconut oils. The formula, rich in carrot seed oil and beta-carotene, is especially effective after a day out sailing, BBQ-ing, hiking or whatever under the sun.

#4 SPF = Sun Protection Factor 
Oh and most importantly, we know you won't forget to slather on some SPF before heading out each morning! Plus we can't mention Burt's Bees without leaving a note on our favorite product: their lip balms, this one has SPF 8.
