Get Smooth for Summer

Who doesn’t want softer skin, especially during the summer? These amazing scrubs will leave your skin noticeably smoother, softer, and healthier. Each one of these favorites gently hydrate your skin ridding it of dirt and tired skin cells.

Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub, $28

This body skin polish has tiny circular scrubbing grains that help to gently exfoliate your skin. Perfect for sensitive skin, the lightly lemon-scented scrub will leave your skin feeling soothed and renewed after every scrub.

 

Ahava Softening Butter Scrub, $20

This body scrub first starts off as a thick creamy body butter. When you add water, it quickly turns into a moisturizing scrub. Exfoliate in a circular motion, making sure to focus on problem areas like elbows and knees. The soft buttery formula will moisturize your skin leaving it softer than ever before.

Moroccanoil Body Butter, $42

The best way to apply this body buff is to scrub on before getting in the shower. Letting the oil soak in will help skin soften, allowing the scrub to really soak deep into the skin. Concentrate on areas that are rough or dry. This scrub is super light and perfect for sensitive and dry skin types.

 

St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Polish, $50

This St. Tropez Tan Optimizer is a must have for summer, especially if you are using a self-tanner. Prepare your skin for the perfect summer tan using this light, sugary scrub. It easily removes dead skin cells to brighten and prepare your skin for the best self-tan possible (which can be achieved by using the St. Tropez self-tanning mousse)!

Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel, $54

Using this daily face peel will quickly become your new best kept secret. It works quickly to even skin tone, visibly reduce pore size, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. The added green tea extract helps to smooth, balance, and protect skin. This simple two step process will leave your skin feeling amazingly refreshed. Use it year-round!

Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Retexturizer Exfoliating Scrub, $30

This multi-action retexturizing scrub works wonders and contains moisturizers from sweet almond oils, apricot, mango, and Dragon’s Blood (an all natural plant based aid).  It feels great on the skin, minimizes pores, fine lines and wrinkles too. After a few uses, your skins texture will feel just like it was 10+ years ago.

St Ives Apricot Scrub, $5

This fabulous scrub will leave your skin extra smooth. The gentle exfoliating scrub will carefully remove dirt and oil, leaving your skin acne and blackhead free. It’s a great product for those who are breakout prone. I love the subtle apricot smell (and the price is right too)!

Best Beauty Products from Around the World

Many of the best skin and hair products use natural ingredients from around the globe.  Some of these magical ingredients have been used for centuries. Here are some amazing products to try:

Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar 7.8 oz
This looks like a bar of soap except it is made from 100% Umbrian clay! It can be used as s deep cleanser or to calm irritations like rosacea, blemishes and ingrown hairs.  It also absorbs toxins due to its high mineral content.  I like to use it in the t-zone area where oil builds up and find that it works extremely well (especially for spot-treating blemishes).  Umbrian Clay, found only in Nocera Umbra, Italy, also has anti-inflammatory properties.  The basis of therapeutic treatments for centuries dating back to the 6th century B.C., Umbrian Clay has been known to clear pores and brighten complexions.

Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream
I love this styling cream because it contains argan oil and has all the benefits of the original MORROCCANOIL treatment for hair but is not greasy (and smells amazing).  Use about a dime size amount in wet hair each time before styling and it will protect it from the wrath of the harsh styling tools we all love to use.  It hydrates the hair perfectly and is my go-to styling product of choice.  Argan oil, found in Morocco is produced from the kernels of the argan tree that only grows wild in semi-desert soil.  The rare oil is renowned as a hair, skin and cuticle treatment for its hydrating properties and vitamin content.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner
This therapeutic formula heals and treats the scalp and preserves hair’s natural emollients.   I love how the shampoo and conditioner smells minty and fresh.  Plus, it leaves hair feeling super clean and shiny.  Tea tree oil, which hails from Australia, is taken from the leaves of a plant which is native to its northeast coast.  It has many beneficial medical properties and is commonly used in Australia as an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal.

Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Face Cream
Kiehl’s recently introduced this anti-aging moisturizer formulated with the rare rosa artica or “Resurrection Flower,” as its main active ingredient.  This new product promises to repair cells, reduce lines and wrinkles, and protect skin from future damage.  I enjoy using it regularly because it makes my skin feel firm and hydrated. Rosa artica is a plant that grows in the mountains of Bulgaria and the secret lies in the flower’s ability to retain water within the cell which is why it can survive for approximately 30 months without any water.

Ahava Purifying Mud Mask
This product is a deep cleansing mineral mud mask that contains purifying qualities and clears skin of excess oils and blackheads. Face masks are the ultimate in pampering the delicate skin on your face—this one dries in only two minutes so it’s easy to make time to treat yourself.  Most importantly, the mask contains many of the soothing ingredients found in the waters of the Dead Sea located in Israel. The Dead Sea provides one of the world’s highest concentrations of healthy minerals for the skin.
