Summer Skin Care Tips
Do you spend time in the summer sun?  I love the warm sunshine and know that I need to take care of my skin.  My skin gets tanned, dry and my heels become calloused.  How about you?  How do you take care of your skin?  There are so many things to do and I’ll share a few here.  Reply to this email and I’ll send you my Natural Skin Care Guide.  Feel free to forward this email to family and friends.  


Sun Care
 

Summer is the time to really pay attention to the effects that the sun has on your skin. Carrot seed oil, raspberry seed oil, coconut oil and sesame seed oil work relatively well as natural alternatives to conventional sunscreen.
 
Still, to keep your skin in peak condition, limit time in the sun to about an hour at a time and make sure to reapply the natural SPF about every half hour. Shade and protective clothing are also musts for the health of your skin.
 

After Sun Care

 
Should you happen to get sunburned from too much sun, there are a few natural ways to diminish the effects of the sunburn and to keep more comfortable until your skin heals.
 
Aloe vera gel is always the go-to for these situations, just makes sure to use pure gel without any other added chemicals or ingredients — they’re not needed. You can also use peppermint oil for a cooling effect on the skin after burns.
  

Moisturize

 
The extra heat can also be drying to the skin, so make sure that you have a good moisturizer handy. Coconut oil works well to keep your skin hydrated. If you normally have acne-prone or oily skin, opt for adding just a few drops of coconut oil to another moisturizer instead of applying it to your whole face.
 
This will ensure that you are getting the proper amount of moisture to your skin and keeping it from drying it from the intense heat or overly zealous air conditioning.

Gentle Exfoliation for Healthy Heels

 
Those with layers of dead skin may want to consider exfoliating. Sure, using the pumice stone works, but it may not be enough when the problem is extensive. You may need a specialized exfoliating solution to help deal with your specific foot problem. You can mix a specific natural blend meant to exfoliate but also medicate the region.
 
Start with a handful of ground rice. Add a few teaspoons of raw honey and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to the rice until you get a paste-like consistency.
 
Add a few drops of your choice of oil. Soak your feet in lukewarm water for about 10 minutes, and then scrub with the solution. Do this for about a week or until you feel satisfied with how your heels feel.
