BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE WITH 4 SUMMER SKINCARE TIPS

Your Instagram feed is bursting with sun bathers, pool parties, and warm hiking trails. Snapping plenty of summertime selfies is great until you’re too self-conscious to post anything because your skin looks like a juicy tomato instead of a radiant glow.

Radiant and Protected Is the Ultimate Skin Goal

As you enjoy summer days, your skin can suffer from too much sun exposure. Skin damage appears as discoloration, a change in texture, and even blisters or dark blemishes. Our skin protects us, but it’s a fragile barrier we need to nourish.

Although a sun-kissed glow makes skipping makeup a breeze, it doesn’t mean you should get lax with your skincare routine. Soak in these four summer skincare tips to keep you glowing and help you maintain your beautiful selfie skin.

The Good, The Bad, and The Sunshine Vitamin

Sunshine can feel invigorating and brighten your mood thanks to the powerful vitamins in its rays. Vitamin D enriches our bodies with so much goodness there’s a reason it’s called the sunshine vitamin.

That being said, your skin can easily get burned, flushed, and irritated from the dangerous side effects of the sun. Going on a date, or giving a presentation at work, with your face peeling or flaking is sure to make anyone self-conscious. There’s even an increased risk of skin problems, and possibly skin diseases, if your skin is exposed to too much sun over the years.

4 Summer Skincare Tips: Lady with hat

Make sure you’re using a moisturizer in your summer skincare regimen with at least a 15 SPF to keep your skin moisturized and protected each day. The skin on your lips is ultra-sensitive to the sunshine, so pick up a chap stick or lip balm made with UV protection to keep them kissable. If you use a product with a higher SPF, you won’t need to reapply it as often.

Get Shady to Save Your Skin

I have very fair skin that freckles rather than tans. Just 15 minutes outside with my skin unprotected, and I get sunburned. If you forgot to apply sunscreen before heading out the door, there are several hideouts for your skin if you’re caught outside without UV protection.

Keep your skin glowing while still enjoying the fresh air.

  • Keep a wide brim hat or baseball cap in your trunk
  • Choose umbrella-covered seating
  • Host a dinner party under your covered patio
  • Wear light-weight, breathable cotton long-sleeved shirts

Your skin can keep its summer glow if you’re careful about how long it’s in the sunshine.

Hello Hydration, Goodbye Lackluster Skin

4 Summer Skincare Tips: Water Bottle

No one wants to look like a dry piece of coral at the beach. While you’re out enjoying the long summer days, remember to keep hydrated . Your skin loses moisture more quickly when there’s a heat wave. If your skin loses moisture, it’s bound to look older and lackluster.
It can become so dried out and flaky you may want to hide behind oversized sunglasses and a scarf all day.

Drinking plenty of water is easier than you think. Pack plenty of H2O to take to with you on summer activities. Throw a few water bottles in your beach bag or pack a small cooler the next time you spend the afternoon soaking in sun rays. By staying hydrated, you’ll have more energy to enjoy the day—and look good doing it.

Get Summer Strong

Summer is the perfect time to change your daily workout scenery. Go for a jog around the neighborhood, bike to the park, or hit up your local tennis or basketball court. I love going to my local water aerobics class to exercise outside. Your skin will probably sweat a little more in the higher temperatures. I always joke with my friends that I “sparkle” May through July. But if you’re drinking extra water as a part of your new, outside summer skincare routine, you’ll likely keep your supple summer glow.

Rub in your SPF, drop some lemon in your water bottle, grab your tennis racket, and take on this summer with simple skincare tips to keep you glowing. By taking care of your skin, your body will shine with vitamin D and you’ll rock this summer with stellar confidence.

4 Trending Summer Skincare Products You Need

Product Envy: Update Your Skincare Regimen

Summertime is full of weekend brunches, poolside-selfies, and new, brightly packaged skincare products. It can be difficult to know what skincare myths to believe and which products to buy into. Your skincare offer more than a bright floral packaging, or ads with tanned models though.

Check out these trending summer skincare products that really do live up to the glow.

Get a Little Misty

Once upon a time when I rocked jelly sandals, I thought those little battery-powered, handheld fan/spray bottles were fantastic during the summer. Thankfully, I put away my personal water-fans and discovered there’s an adult-worthy product for that. Face mists contain ingredients like rose, hibiscus, citrus extracts, and probiotics that refresh your skin.

Summer Skincare Products: Roses

Face mists spritz your complexion with:

  • Hydration
  • Illuminating Essence
  • Energy
  • Soothing Atomizers
  • Botanical Extracts
  • Anti-inflammatories

There are even different mists formulated for your specific skin type. These mists give your face that extra perk-up when the heat has you dragging.

A Girl On the Glow

Celavive just introduced a new Hydrating + Lifting Sheet Mask and I’m obsessed. Sheet masks are easy-to-use beauty treatments that have been a popular staple in Korean beauty regimens for years. With hydrating and lifting properties, sheet masking is becoming a wonderful way to cool off during the summer and get your glow back.

Summary Sheet Mask Hacks:Summer Skincare Products: Celavive Sheet Mask

  •  Stay cool: Pop the packaged mask into the fridge a few minutes before applying for a cool pick-me-up.
  • Customize: Snip, trim, or tear areas of the mask to better fit your skin so there’s no excess fabric bulges, air spots, or mask-covered lips or eyes. Smooth your mask so it touches every part of that pretty face.
  • Set a timer: Only 20 minutes max. Leaving sheet masks on longer can actually counteract the effects and remove all the moisture in your skin.
  • Get steamy: Sheet mask in the bathtub and your skin will really soak it all in.
  • Facial Massage: Massage all that extra essence into your skin. Even squeeze out what’s left in the package.

Jade Therapy

Keep channeling Eastern skincare techniques by calming puffiness with a Jade roller. Jade rollers were first used by empresses and members of the elite in China for centuries. If the royals use it, you know I’m testing it out. Maybe your friends will be green with envy over your lack of redness and under-eye circles.

Summer Skincare Products: Jade Roller

Talk about ancient glamour. Jade is the perfect shade of minty green and it’s cool to the touch. Roll the larger roller along your cheeks, jaw, and forehead. The smaller stone works best near your lips and under eyes. You can even use a jade roller to massage in any oils or serums you use in your skincare regimen.

Bare it All

Summer fashion season is full of shorts, crop tops, and bare shoulders. But, if your skin gets dried and bumpy during the cold winter like mine does, you’re probably hesitant about showing off your bare shoulders and knees.

Body scrubs are my skin savers right now. These scrubs exfoliate your skin and leave it feeling soft and hydrated. With lovely scents, naturals oils, and great exfoliating properties use a body scrub once a week to keep your summer skin sun-kissed and smooth. There are plenty of brands that use coconut oil, aloe vera, and coffee to keep their scrubs more nature-friendly.

#SkinConfident

Summer Skincare Products: Skin Confident

Summertime or not, if your skin is well taken care of and you’re focusing on keeping it healthy, your glow will light up the room. Trying new products and finding some fresh favorites is plenty of fun. Remember though, no amount of product or beauty treatment can cover up the unique, flaw-some quirks that make you beautifully you.

USANA CellSentials™: How Does It Compete?

You’ve probably taken a trip down aisles of your favorite supermarket and seen the horde of nutritional supplements fighting tooth and nail for your attention. Some come in fun shapes and some are tasty and gummy (and probably spiked with sugar). Some promise all the nutrients you need in one tablet and others might include probiotics or natural herbs. They’re all different in some ways and the same in others. But one thing is certain—not all supplements are created equal.

USANA’s core supplement pack—USANA® CellSentials™—consists of Vita Antioxidant™ and Core Minerals™. Both of these are much more than your average multivitamin. With their premium blend of a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients, they clearly stand above other supplements found at your average supermarket.

But what about other premium supplements? How does USANA’s CellSentials stack up against its tougher competitors? Let’s take a close look at CellSentials and see what makes it shine in a sea of endless options.

Zooming in on the Ingredients

One way to see how CellSentials stands above the competition is to simply look at the amount of key nutrients it provides compared to similar multivitamins.

Vitamin A helps maintain a strong heart, immune function, and eye and lung health. CellSentials provides 6000 IU in one serving while other premium multivitamins, like GNC Women’s Ultra Mega 50® Plus** and New Chapter Only One Multivitamin**, only provide 5000 IU of vitamin A per serving.*

CellSentials also steps ahead with Vitamin C—an essential nutrient when it comes to maintaining healthy veins, muscles, tendons, bones, teeth, and skin. GNC Women’s Ultra Mega 50® Plus provides 200 mg and New Chapter Only One Multivitamin provides only 60 mg of this vital nutrient. CellSentials delivers 500 mg of vitamin C per serving.*

Iodine is another key nutrient and is crucial for the normal production of thyroid hormones. These hormones help regulate metabolism, growth, reproduction, and protein synthesis. CellSentials provides 250 mcg while GNC Women’s Ultra Mega 50® Plus provides 150 mcg and New Chapter Only One provides 75 mcg.*

With these key nutrients, CellSentials provides you with a higher amount per serving. And this is important. You see, nutritional authorities established the daily recommended nutrient levels based on what it takes to avoid deficiency. But these amounts aren’t at levels more recent research shows can help make a difference in your long-term health. Sometimes you need a supplement that simply provides higher levels.

That’s not all. Another consideration when you compare supplements is the ratio of nutrients used together. It can be tempting to pick and choose your nutrients. But those nutrients might be affected by others. For instance, calcium and vitamin D work better together. You need enough of one for the other to be used correctly in the body. The relationships between nutrients can be complex.

A well-designed multivitamin and mineral supplement is made with these complexities in mind. It provides you with the right balance of nutrients. That’s where the USANA CellSentials come in.

The Difference Comes with InCelligence

Not only does CellSentials provide you with a superior blend of nutrients, but it also has an extra ace up its sleeve—USANA InCelligence Technology®.

CellSentials goes beyond simply supporting good health with nutrients. It also helps activate some of your cells’ natural responses through a process called cell signaling. These responses promote youthful cellular function, so your body can adapt to your unique lifestyle needs and help you age well.*

This is what InCelligence is all about. It’s a cutting-edge technology that is the key to helping you unlock the potential within your cells.* Not even the closest competitors address cellular nutrition like CellSentials does.

Tested for Quality and Crafted with Care

When comparing supplements, it’s important to take a close look at what the supplement is made of. But it’s just as important to learn how the supplement was made.

USANA manufactures all its tablet supplements in a state-of-the-art facility and follows the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) mapped after pharmaceutical GMPs.

USANA also has an in-house team of expert scientists and cutting-edge laboratories to ensure that every ingredient used is pure, potent, and of the highest quality. For an ingredient to even be placed in our warehouse, it must undergo rigorous and ongoing quality inspections.

The CellSentials itself will undergo up to 900 different tests. That’s a lot of science. And it’s also made only with active ingredients that can be properly used in your body.

USANA takes manufacturing very seriously, and you should too. Many companies that make even premium supplements simply don’t trust as heavily in scientific testing and research as we do.

If you still need convincing, go ahead and take a full tour of our manufacturing process yourself by watching this video.

Better Health Begins with Better Nutrition

We can go on all day about how great the USANA CellSentials are. But it wouldn’t mean much if other scientific experts didn’t say the same. That’s why USANA obtains third-party verification through the NSF and LGC to confirm what we claim on our labels is correct and to test for banned substances. ConsumerLab.com has also tested and verified some of USANA’s supplements. You see, we’re not just patting ourselves on the back here.

Adding the CellSentials to a varied diet will help you build a foundation to support vibrant and long-term health. And the results speak for themselves. When taken for one month, the CellSentials have been shown to increase circulating blood levels of many nutrients known to be beneficial for health.*

And that’s how CellSentials stacks up against even the toughest competition. It’s not an easy struggle, but it’s more than worth it. Why? Because health is the greatest gift we’ve been given.

Learn more about CellSentials and all it has to offer. And always make sure to consult your physician about what supplements may be best for you.

Although meditation has long since been used to relieve stress, Instagram-worthy interiors and a soft, soothing playlist has made meditation spread like wildfire. And with apps like Headspace, you can train your mind for a healthier, happier life anywhere you go.

Taking meditation to the next level, laughter meditation reminds people not to take themselves so seriously. A good laugh now and then has been said to give you a mental boost similar to meditation, and people everywhere are jumping on board. USANA even had a laughter meditation at our International Convention this year!

With books like The Power Of Now and You Are Here, mindfulness has become both a trend, and a powerful tool. Connecting to the present moment, without being bogged down with fears from the past or future, is a fad that actually works.

New Skin, Who Dis?

Do you have a skincare routine? Or do you fall asleep with makeup still on your face? Your skin is the largest organ your body has, and it works hard every day to protect us from harmful elements.
