Your Summer and Beach Essentials

 

If you live in Australia, you’ll know that Summer is well and truly here!
Whether you are going on a holiday, relaxing at the beach, or just spending time in the outdoors in the sunshine, Love Your Health have all the essentials you need this Summer.

Pre Beach Prep and Skincare

Exfoliator

Exfoliators are great in summer to get rid of any dry, dead skin, especially during summer when we are wearing more shorts, dresses and skirts. An exfoliator is also great to use as skin preparation before applying a natural fake tan.

 

Natural Fake Tan

If you are after a healthy and safe glow through summer, there is no better way to achieve this than with an organic fake tan.

Wotnot have an incredible tanning range that is 100% natural and certified organic..And all of the products have a beautiful scent too.
I personally love Wotnot's GlowCertified Organic Tan Mousse which provides a gorgeous, healthy looking tan without the added nasties. Grab the Wotnot Tan Application Mitt too for easy, mess free tan applying.

 

Tinted Moisturiser

Tinted moisturisers are perfect for summer as they are a natural alternative to everyday makeup, easy to apply, and have a lightweight texture and coverage.

Blessed by Nature is a creamy mineral tinted moisturiser with a non greasy formula that blends easily into the skin. I love this one because it also contains antioxidants like Kakadu Plum and Vitamin E which help nourish the skin.
It can be used alone as your daily tinted moisturiser, or on top of your favourite natural moisturiser.

 

Nail Polish

Before you head to the beach or wear your summer sandals, have you checked your nails?
Putting on nail polish is the perfect summer accessory. Think summer colours like tangerine, coral, nude, sheer pink, turquoise blue, and sun yellows.

Beach Day

 

Natural SPF & Sunscreen

I love sunbathing by the ocean in summer (who doesn’t?), but it is also important to stay safe from overexposure. Overexposure from the sun can burn and prematurely age our beautiful skin, leaving wrinkles and spots.

Sunscreen is an ideal way to help protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays (Australia has some of the harshest UV levels in the world).

I love using natural sunscreens as they are free from harsh chemicals that my skin won’t absorb. Natural sunscreen can also be ‘reef safe’ which also keeps our oceans and waterways clean from any nasties. Did you know that in 2018, Hawaii became the first state in the United States to ban the sale of sunscreens containing two common chemicals, which are oxybenzone and octinoxate, as researchers worldwide have stated they are potentially harmful for our oceans and to aquatic life?

We stock a large range of both natural and reef safe sunscreens at Love Your Health.

PEOPLE4OCEAN Natural Sunscreen SPF 30 is a natural, golden and nourishing sunscreen. This one is a favourite of mine because it also has a semi-matte mineral finish. It is infused with carrot pigments and organic oils which provides high sun protection while promoting a healthy glow and protecting the skin against sun stress. For every purchase, $1 is donated to reef conservation.



Ocean Australia Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 is a great sunscreen that is non-greasy while protecting your skin from the sunlight (prevents up to 98% of UVB rays and UVA). This sunscreen is also free from zinc oxide, meaning it’s not only safe for us but also the coral reefs and marine life in the ocean.

 

* Please note: Sunscreen is only one part of sun protection. Wear protective clothing, hats and sunglasses when exposed to the sun, and stay in the shade where possible. Prolonged high-risk sun exposure should be avoided. Frequent reapplication and use in accordance with the directions is required for effective sun protection.

Lip Balm

The lips are easy to forget when spending a day at the beach, but it's also important to keep our lips hydrated as well as protected from the sun as the summer heat and sun can dry out our lips. Who wants cracked and dry lips? I know I don't!

Eco Lips Organic Lip Balms are made with organic ingredients, and nutrient-rich organic mongongo Zambian oil. Plus they also contain cocoa butter.

 

Deodorant

As the weather gets warmer and during the summer months, we tend to sweat more due to the humidity and heat. This can lead to body odour and skin irritation. Sweating is a natural process that our body goes through of course, as it helps cool the body down as well as naturally remove toxins. I don't know about you, but I don't want to absorb any more toxins into my skin, which is why I opt for a natural toxic free deodorant.

Ethique Solid Deodorant sticks are formulated without baking soda to be gentle on the skin while Zinc oxide, Magnesium hydroxide and Spiny Bamboo Extract, which can absorb twice its own weight in moisture and oil, help to keep odours at bay all day long. The deodorant sticks come in three different fragrances: Lime and Eucalyptus, Lavender, or Unscented.

 

Hydrate Mist

Weleda Hydrating Facial Mist is refreshing mist spray to rehydrate dull looking skin during a hot day. This facial mist contains the prickly pear cactus which has moisturising abilities and it's also blended with essential oils.


And of course, don’t forget your swimwear, sunglasses and hat!

After Sun Care

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera in it’s natural form has medicinal and cooling properties which can help calm and cool down sunburn, hydrate and moisturise dry and dull looking skin, and soothes itchy irritated skin and insect bites.

Dr Organic Aloe Vera Gel refreshes and rejuvenates the skin and also contains cucumber, witch hazel, and calendula.

 

Facial Toner

Facial toners are a great essential during summer, especially as our skin tends to be more oily during the hot summer days.

Over summer I love using Weleda Refining Toner as it makes my skin feel hydrated and radiant. This toner also includes witch hazel an extracts of wild rose leaves and natural essential oils for a light fragrance.

 

Moisturiser

The arrival of summer down under usually means long days sunbathing by the sea, and hot summer nights sipping cocktails. This summer heat can dehydrate our skin, which is why it’s important to keep our skin moisturised and hydrated.

Moisturiser can also be perfect to use after exfoliating your body and you have rid yourself of any excess dry skin before hitting the beach.

Alaffia Everyday Body Lotion is made with virgin coconut oil, hydrating shea butter, and antioxidant-rich coffee berries for deep moisturising effects.
This one smells like coconut which is the perfect scent for summer.

Insulated Water Bottle

Stay hydrated in the heat and keep your water cool with a Cheeki Insulated Water Bottle.

 

Snack Containers

These Ever Eco 
Stainless Steel Mini Snack Containers are handy for days at the beach where you can pack lunch or beach snacks. These also have leak proof lids, so you'll have lots of options for dressings, sauces and condiments to add flavour to your snacks.
