If there’s one season to rule them all in the world of natural skincare –it’s Summer.
Late warm evenings give us more reason to get outside for activities, brunch or a quiet read in the park. With all this extra time outdoors you should be armed with an arsenal of good-for-you products that actually work! We’ve rounded up a few summer staples you’ll want to have in your beach bag. These natural skincare products are not only good for your skin, they’re soon-to-be the products you swear by.
The first must of the summer is SPF – it’s so important, we’ve picked out two products at two price points to support you on your brightest outdoor days. A little sun is good for the soul, but we want to make sure our skin doesn’t experience any irreversible damage.
Our product pick: Clean Freak

Why we picked it: This sheer sunscreen packs a punch with vitamins C/D/E and a non-nano, non-coated zinc oxide. With a proprietary blend of botanicals, this mineral SPF supports your skin and helps it repair during and after exposure. This multi-purpose SPF beauty can be used both on your body and face. Another Solara Suncare SPF product we love includes their Pout Protector Moisturizing Lip Serum, SPF 15.

With a micro dose of Ylang Ylang and strong antioxidant plant extracts, non-nano, uncoated mineral zinc helps this silky moisturizer serve as an excellent primer or standalone. The ingredient list alone is delicious, and the fragrance profile is what summer night memories are made of. Speaking of sun - LEPAAR uses the unique ancient method of sun-infusion to gently release the medicinal properties from their flowers, fruit, skins, leaves, bark, resins, seeds, even wood and minerals, into biodynamic Olive oil with the divine energy of the Sun over a period of 4-6 months – sometimes up to 1 year for a specifically precious vintage.
