Stay Fresh On the Go - The Best Products for an Active Summer
The days are warm, the sun is shining, and the calendar is filled with summer adventures. These next few months will keep you on the go, whether it's in the mountains, ocean, or on the yoga mat.
You might even jump on an international flight or a cross-country van trip, where showers are scarce, and space in your suitcase is limited. Wherever you are off to this season, you'll want your beauty routine to be low maintenance so you can focus on exploring. Multi-tasking products that keep you clean and your skin hydrated will save you time and space.
There's no denying our skincare and beauty needs change during an action-packed summer. The increased humidity and high temps paired with an active lifestyle make feeling fresh the top priority. No wonder we crave refreshing formulas that don't weigh us down.
But what's the secret to finding the balance between practicality and performance? The wellness experts at YUNI Beauty share their favorite products and top tips to help you stay fresh during an active summer.
Regularly apply a lightweight moisturizer
Next to sunscreen and a good cleanser, a lightweight moisturizer is all you'll need in your summer skincare routine. It's a common misconception that we only need to use a lotion during the winter. The air contains more moisture during the summer, but the sun's powerful rays can quickly deplete your skin of its natural oils. Regular use of moisturizers, especially after sun exposure, will keep your skin healthy and soft.
Look for a light, water-based formula with antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. These ingredients will help fight off the damaging effects of free radicals that occur after exposure to UV rays while increasing cell production.
YUNI's very own ACTIVE CALM Firming Facial Skin Moisturizer nourishes and protects parched skin with powerful plant-based ingredients like edelweiss, organic buriti oil, coconut oil, and green tea and turmeric extracts. Fans love the fast-absorbing formula and refreshing aroma from 100% natural essential oils.
Stay fresh with Biodegradable Shower Sheets
Summer is all about enjoying your passions, the outdoors, and beautiful weather with the people you love. But with the mix of hot temps and constantly staying on the move, perspiration is inevitable. How can you stay fresh and clean if a shower is not an option?
Maybe this season will find you camping in the middle of the forest, on a cross-country road trip, or sleeping on a plane. No matter your mode of travel, the truth is that the most exciting adventures leave us without the amenities we are used to at home.
YUNI Shower Sheets are an absolute lifesaver no matter your warm-weather adventure. The individually packaged towelettes are ideal for storing in your gym bag or glove compartment for a quick clean-up between activities. Unwrap an oversized biodegradable body wipe and swipe from head to toe to clear away sweat and dirt without stripping the skin of its natural moisture.
Shower Sheets are available in two uplifting aromas. You can rejuvenate with fresh and floral Rose and Cucumber or our classic Peppermint and Citrus.Most conventional wipes are harmful to the planet, But YUNI's Shower Sheets can be tossed in the trash without any guilt because they will decompose in the landfill.
Try outFLASH BATH No Rinse Body Cleansing Foam for the same cleansing effects of our Shower Sheets but with zero trace. The lightweight mouse instantly lifts away sweat, dirt, and odor without the use of water. Simply pump the foam directly onto the skin and massage gently until absorbed.
Skip a wash with dry shampoo
Imagine actually being able to refresh your hairstyle after sleeping in a tent? Or doing hot yoga? Sounds impossible, right? Luckily, there's a product that absorbs excess oil and sweat naturally, allowing you to skip washing your hair.
Invisible Dry Cleaner Texturizing Dry Shampoo refreshes second (or third) day hair and adds volume and texture using all 100% natural ingredients. Quinoa protein lifts the hair from the roots without a trace of residue, while antioxidant-packed Hibiscus extract nourishes and Tapioca absorbs excess oil and sweat.
Even if a shower is within reach, the time it takes to wash and restyle your hair isn't always available. In addition, washing can fade color-treated strands, and heat styling can damage the follicle. Dry shampoo is a year-round beauty secret we simply cannot do without.
Stay cool with Chillax Muscle Recovery Gel
If you're like us, summer is the season when we challenge our bodies. We hike the extra mile to reach the summit or try out new activities like surfing or kayaking with our friends. It's incredible to see all that we are capable of when we believe in ourselves and put in the focus.
But even if you reach that peak, our bodies become tired and need time to recover. When the temps are sweltering, heat therapy sounds impossible. Turn to a portable and easy-to-apply cooling muscle recovery gel instead to ease the pain and soreness.
Apply Chillax Muscle Recovery Gel to achy shoulders, knees, feet, and basically anywhere that needs cooling relief. The menthol effects of peppermint leaf extract instantly reduce discomfort and begin to cool the body, while arnica extract naturally reduces swelling, pain, and bruising. Plus, the energizing aromas of lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint are a refreshing alternative to the typical medicated scent of your usual post-workout gels.
Stress Relieving Aromatherapy
Summer living may be easy, but that doesn't mean stress disappears completely. Whether it's finding ways to entertain the kids or an overpacked schedule, summer can become crazed. Not to mention traveling can take its toll on both our body and mental health. In the end, life doesn't stop just because it's summertime!
When life feels overwhelming, allow aromatherapy to calm your nervous system and ground you back to reality. Look to 100% natural essential oils like Bergamot, Grapefruit, Orange, and Cedar in a portable roll-on, like our CARRY OM Stress-Relieving Aromatherapy Essence.
Apply the oil onto the neck, chest, wrists, and hands. Take a moment to focus on your breath by closing your eyes, rubbing your wrists together, and taking a few deep breaths. This simple action will lower your heart rate and take your body out of fight or flight mode whenever stress or anxiety strikes.
Keep a body mist handy
Smelling fresh is just as important as feeling fresh. But spritzing your typical perfumes just doesn't feel right after a yoga practice or long hike. A natural pick-me-up that aligns with your healthy lifestyle is a choice you can feel good about.
MY OM WORLD Aromatic Body Mist resets the mind and body with the calming essential oils of geranium, bergamot, neroli, and sage. Plus, the micro-mist formula is infused with aloe vera and kukui seed oil to moisturize your skin.
One happy reviewer shared, "Working from home with little kids, I'm having to squeeze in my workouts whenever I can and can't always shower right after. A few spritzes of this masks any post-workout unpleasantness until I have time to shower. Definitely recommend!"
Don't forget sunscreen
An adventure-packed summer wouldn't be complete without sunscreen to keep you healthy and protected. Make sure to apply sunscreen to your whole body and look for labeling that says "broad spectrum" or "full-spectrum" and an SPF of at least 30. We prefer using physical sunscreen because the formulas include minerals found in nature like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, and studies have found there to be fewer side effects than the chemical alternatives.
You can find all our summer favorites in travel-compliant sizing, so you'll never miss a moment of wellness. YUNI Beauty products are never tested on animals, and our organic, natural ingredients are consciously and sustainably sourced. We proudly use 100% natural essential oils and ingredients to enhance your active and healthy lifestyle.
