12 Summer Survival Beauty Hacks

Beat the heat and stay fresh, clean and natural with these makeup and body care hacks.

  • For the smoothest legs before a night out or big event, use Body Polish as a pre-shaving treatment, by applying and exfoliating your skin with the polish, then rinsing off the sugar and using the excess oils as a shave cream. Try Pomegranate, Midnight Orchid, Pink Champagne or Coconut Lime Vanilla.
  • Stop lipstick from bleeding by lining the outer edge of your lips using Neutral Concealing Stick and blend outward with the Foundation Concealer Brush.
  • Run out of lip balm? Grab your Organic Skin & Nail Balm or Nursing Balm and apply to lips after a day in the sun.
  • Don’t let your Sheer Minerals Makeup melt away! After applying your mineral makeup, set with a few sprays of Mineral Setting Spray then use the Blending Sponge and Matte Veil, Pink Veil or your Mineral Foundation to dab away any oil or shine.
  • Keep Eye Liner Pencil from smearing by lightly dusting Matte Veil or Pink Veil under the eye to absorb sweat and hold the line in place.
  • Make your Hydrating Body Spritz do double duty to freshen skin and hair! Tame frizz by spraying a couple squirts on your hand and gently smooth hair. Plus, use Hydrating Body Spritz as a detangler after swimming. Try Coconut Cream, Strawberry Lemonade or Grapefruit Lily. Refrigerate for a fragrant, refreshing mist.
  • Sooth razor burns with Healing Elements Balm, Prebiotic Facial Mist or Organic Skin & Nail Balm.
  • Tone down a red nose from sunburn with Green Corrector Concealing Stick first, apply foundation next then use Honey Glow Bronzer instead of blush.
  • Sweat stains are the pits! Try one of these 3 natural stain removers. Avoid use with delicate fabrics like silk, and patch test a small area of dark colored fabric to ensure treatment won’t bleach garment.
    • Soak the stained area in vinegar. Whites and light colors: use equal parts cold water and vinegar. Dark colors: use equal parts warm water and vinegar. Rinse and let dry before laundering.
    • Cut a lemon in half and rub cut side on stain, squeezing little juice into the stain. Air dry and apply more as needed. Wash as normal.
    • Sprinkle baking soda on stained area. Allow to dry and brush off baking soda. Repeat as needed until stain fades. Wash as normal.
  • Keep Mineral Setting Spray in a cooler or the refrigerator to cool, hydrate and freshen your face throughout the day. Perfect for a BBQ or other outdoor event.
  • Cool a sunburn by applying Prebiotic Facial Mist first followed by Whipped Body Butter once mist has soaked into skin.

Benefits of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is one the easiest steps you can add to your skincare routine to see immediate results; it instantly brightens and evens out your complexion, giving you a more youthful appearance. There are three different forms of exfoliation. The first two are chemical and enzymatic exfoliation. The third is manual, which is the category Lemongrass Spa Facial Polish and Microdermabrasion Crème fall under. Manual exfoliation is the process of using ingredients such as pumice, walnut shells, salt, sugar or even jojoba beads to manually buff away dead skin cells. Manual exfoliation can also mean using different types of materials such as washcloths, sponges or boucle pads to physically eliminate dead skin.

Exfoliating products have recently been in the spotlight due to the negative impact of toxic ingredients such as microplastic beads are having on the environment. Microplastic beads are used for exfoliation , and these beads are not biodegradable or environmentally friendly. They wash down the drain and into waterways, and biologists are finding these beads in fish and other marine animals and are documenting the negative impact on our ecosystems. Lemongrass Spa uses one hundred percent natural, biodegradable and environmentally friendly exfoliating ingredients in their body and facial polishes and Microdermabrasion Crème. We also offer a cotton boucle pad to use with our cleansing gels or soaps as another form of exfoliation. During the months of June and July enjoy one of our three exfoliating facial products below at Buy One, Get One Half Off!

Microdermabrasion CrèmeF5620_large.jpg

Soften age spots and smooth fine lines with deep exfoliating, volcanic microcrystals suspended in a conditioning crème. Gently polish skin at home once or twice per week. This is a gentle alternative to chemical peels and harsh resurfacing. Enhanced with green tea, chamomile, licorice root and sunflower seed oil for added nutrients and anti-aging properties. Not recommended for extra-sensitive or thinning skin.

Five Steps to Summer Ready Skin

You’ve booked your tickets to that summer getaway but before you leave town, you realize that your skin isn’t beach ready! Here are five easy steps to glowing arms, legs and even feet!

  1. Use our Body Polish before you remove unwanted hair to prepare skin for the smoothest shave. The polish will remove any dull skin and hydrate with its natural oils leaving you with a healthy summer glow. To subtly enhance your skin’s color and add a touch of sparkle and shine, follow with one of our Bronzing Butters in two seasonal scents, Coconut Cream and Mandarin Orange.
  2. During outdoor summer activities don’t forget to apply one of our Lemongrass Spa sunscreens to shield your skin from sun damaging rays. Help protect the environment with our natural sunscreen sticks. The Sunscreen Sport Stick SPF 30 is easy for traveling or touch ups through out the day. The Tinted Sunscreen Sport Stick SPF 30 or BB Crème is easy to wear with our Sheer Minerals Makeup for extra protection for everyday use. For the safest sunscreens on the market, including Lemongrass Spa’s Ocean Friendly and Sport Stick, check out the Environmental Working Group’s 2016 Guide to sunscreens. 
  3. If you have experienced too much sun, place our Hand and Body Lotion, Body Icing or Ultra Hydrating Body Crème in the refrigerator before applying. This will not only moisturize sun-damaged skin, but also soothe and cool down the burn. You can even add a couple drops of our certified organic Peppermint Essential Oil to the lotion to help draw the heat out of sunburned skin. Another Lemongrass Spa product that is refreshing to place in the fridge is the Hydrating Body Spritz. Misting the refreshing spritz on the go or after a day of outdoor adventures is another great way to cool down.
  4. Beach walks, flip flips, sandals and being barefoot can take a toll on your feet during warm weather months. Our Complete Cucumber or Herbal Foot Care Kits are the perfect answers for feet in need of some attention. For deep moisturizing, places socks over your feet for a couple hours or over night after using the foot balms. While getting your feet sandal-ready, consider blessing a deserving service member stationed overseas with a foot spa by purchasing a Freedom Feet Foot Kit; click here to learn more about the Freedom Feet program.
  5. These are some other important tips that are often overlooked to keep your skin summer ready. Your underarm area can be very sensitive especially if you are shaving more often. Our new all Natural Deodorant Paste and Deodorant Spray are gentle on skin and will help keep odor away. We also have a Natural Deodorant Stick for those who like a more traditional deodorant. The last summer skin tip is to wear a bug spray. There is nothing worse then having itchy bug bites during the summer. Take Bug-a-Boo Insect Repellent with you to all your outdoor activates to keep those pests away. If you happen to get a bite, place our Healing Elements Balm on it as soon as possible to help soothe the itch and irritation.

With these five steps your skin will be ready for warm weather! We hope that you take Lemongrass Spa with you throughout all your summer activities. Have a happy, healthy and safe skin summer!
